Household tips

  • Suzann suggests: “I f you have an expensive dining room table or one that has family history or is antique, invest in a table pad that goes underneath the tablecloth.”
  • Chris says: “Ace has the white ring remover for $9, and if your Ace doesn’t have it you can ship to store free – great reviews by the way.”
  • Jen k comments: “re cleaning stainless steel appliances: I did a focus group a few months ago with a major appliance manufacturer. As we were leaving, they gave us sample packs of their stainless steel cleaning wipes (unrelated to our focus group subject). The employee commented quietly that the best product they have used is actually Method All-Purpose spray. Great for me since I use that product on everything already.”
  • Tammy adds: “For stainless steel cleaning, I use Greased Lightning. It’s awesome. Menard’s carries it and some grocery stores do too.”
  • And CHRISTINE shares: “My sister says Steel Meister is a great cleaner for stainless steel. It is available at Home Depot. I have not used it yet. I’m going to try the Method, since I use that every day too! Thanks!”

In-store deals

  • Kelly shares: “I see the Frozen Sparkle Elsa doll at Justice (clothing store) every time I go there. I’ve never looked at the price, but that’s another option. Right after I got lucky and bought mine at Amazon, I saw them there. They also have lots of Frozen t-shirts, stickers, etc.”

  • Karla responds: “Jewel has the Fruit 2o for 1.00 this sales week.”
  • Melissa posts on Facebook: “Hi- I’m wondering if I can pick your brain about a meal planning resource or if you can throw it out to your readers to see if they have? I’m looking for a printable family meal planner/calendar that allows the following things: Shopping List, Space to menu plan for 7 days of the week with each day including Breakfast, AM Snack, Lunch, PM Snack, Dinner AND hopefully something where I could note our family activities – for example, something where there would be space for ‘Soccer 6-6:45′ I feel like I can’t be the only other mom out there that needs this kind of resource and would rather not recreate the wheel if someone else knows of something like this. Thanks in advance for any help/tips/links you can provide!
  • From Kerri Anne on Facebook: “ I’ve looked but haven’t saw anything amazing. I was looking for a great deal on a baby stroller. Prefer in-store. I only have a Walmart, Target & Kmart near me. Do you know of any deals? Thanks!!!

Ancestry research

  • Charlotte shares: “I tried this, but because I’m from Europe (as in born in Europe), doesn’t have very good coverage over European ancestors. Kinda bummed.”
  • Patty suggests: “Check with your local library. Sometimes they have the subscription and you can either access it from their website or using a computer in the library. All you need is your library card number. Also, many libraries hold classes on this subject to teach you how to start searching on your own. A fantastic use of your tax dollars!”
  • Connie adds: “It’s a great show, really enjoy it. Often you can find it and its British counterpart on YouTube (the British one is better, of course!) They still run the reruns on TLC and I bet they are on the TLC website. Ancestry is a good deal, but there are many other sites that can be helpful in genealogy that offer free assistance or low cost assistance. Places like FamilySearch ( , US GenWeb ( and others offer many original records to anyone. If people really enjoy it I’d be happy to write up a bunch of the money saving habits I’ve learned since I started to do genealogy when I was 10 years old.”


  • Something seachicago noticed: “Recent, I saw a 96 pack (8 dozen) of Ticonderoga pencils for $9.49 at Costco. Go to the store, though, because has them for $14.99.”


  • Scott M. says: “The CVS Deals for Dial can be stacked with a promo that expires on Monday at 11:59PM Eastern Time, where if you buy $25 of Dial products, you get a free $10 gas card:


Household tips

  • From Steve F.: “About those white rings on furniture…..This product works great. Had huge white ring on table after Thanksgiving where the hot gravy bowl sat on the tablecloth. Found this Jasco Furniture White Ring Remover up at Clark-Devon Hardware in Chicago…Didn’t pay the high price of Amazon tho! It’s a cloth with stuff on it, you follow the instructions and the ring came out completely. Polished up the table and you couldn’t even tell. Saved the antique table from the dump ditch!!! Link and pic is here, but I think you can find it cheaper other places.”
  • He adds: “Oh….and it’s just not a one time use thing. Put it in a Zip-lock sandwich bag and it’ll last for years.”
  • A question from maggie: “Hi Steve, just saw your reply here. I wonder what the active ingredient in this cloth is – spending $ 26 on a cloth is a bit over my budget but I’d love to try something like this! :)”
  • Steve F. responds: “Maggie, I have no idea what’s in it. I still have the original wrapper, and there is no ingredient listed anywhere on the package. I’ve had mine for probably 10 years or so, and it still works like brand new. Like I said above, I didn’t buy mine from Amazon, and I keep mine sealed in the original zip bag it came in, plus I keep that in another zip bag. I know that I have rescued countless pieces of furniture from thrift stores and alleys in Chicago that had white rings on them with this stuff! , so I’m thinking it’s cheaper to use this rag for years and years, instead of buying new furniture every time a piece gets ruined with water rings. Of course, there is always grandma’s doily to strategically place over that nasty water ring!! :0″
  • Anne found: “The MSDS for the product is here:”
  • Another option, from mama: “Liquid Gold would probably work on the white marks on the table. It does wonder for stains on my wood floors!”
  • And one from Jill: “For all the “white ring” problems, if the methods suggested don’t work, I work for a furniture repair company that can help. Depending on the extent of the damage, we charge $120 and up for the repair of a table. Here is the website if you are interested.


  • Susan C. reports: “Just came back from the Jewel on Janes in Woodridge. Signs say $1.99/lb . Grocery person said he didn’t know about a [$1.49/lb cherries] sale. Went to the register, they rang at $1.99/lb but the checkout clerk was nice enough to adjust the price. Be aware.”
  • A deal from John W: “Also at Jewel this week, the 7-Up/Sunkist/etc soda for 79 cents when you buy 4 includes the 10 varieties, so you can use the 55 cent or $1/2 coupons for 24-29 cent soda. The Sunkist 10 is hard to find, but most Jewels seem to have a little of the other 10 soda. And the new Jewel at Clark and Howard in Chicago has bananas for 19 cents/lb, an in-store special at that store only.”


  • From Joy: “My mPerks had a store coupon for $1/4 granola bars, including nutrition bars (any brand). It pictures boxes, but I bought 4 single Clif bars as part of my $10/11 items and it came off! About $.66 each all told. I imagine it would work fine on the Larabar or Luna singles, too.”

Online deals

  • From cowsarecool22o on Twitter, on the cheap Android phone: “Phone runs Android 4.0 (ice cream sandwich) which was released 2 yrs ago. Ibotta runs on all Android 2.2 or newer.”

Reader requests

  • From peaches: “Does anybody know if there are ever any coupons for Hair Cuttery? Do they accept competitor’s coupons? I know that most people here go to Great Clips because they have coupons all the time, and are a lot cheaper, but the last two times I have gotten a bargain haircut at Great Clips, I have been really disappointed with my haircut. At least at Hair Cuttery you get a half way decent haircut most of the time, and sometimes you get a great one. The last time I got my hair cut, I went to an independent salon in Evanston, that did a wonderful job. I got a lot of complements about my hair, but it cost me $45, and I don’t have that kind of money right now.”
  • Michael asks: “Does anyone know whether you have to order a “movie on demand” to apply the $6 credits to or if it just goes to the cable bill whether you have ordered movies or not?”
  • One from Kimberly: “Any good stainless steel appliance cleaner recommendations? We like the stuff we’re using now but the shipping costs are outrageous! Thanks!”

Sam’s Club

  • Interested in the Groupon, Kristen asks: “Been waiting for this to come around again. My membership expires today, anyone know when I’d be able to use it? Or if my husband can sign us up since he is my 2nd person? Thanks”
  • Margie is wondering too: “If you had a membership and it has been expired (since may) is it considered a new membership if you buy this groupon?”
  • Monique reports: “It worked for us last year with the March Livingsocial deal. I can’t remember the actual dates. The sequences was… bought Livingsocial deal, Sam’s membership expired a month later, waited a month just to be sure, and then redeemed the livingsocial code before its expiration date.”
  • Jackie says: “Mine expired this past March. I was waiting for a deal like this, so I didn’t renew. I bought the last one they had and signed up as a ‘new’ member in June- no problem.”
  • Kim adds: “It worked for me last time. I think spouse was primary on the old membership and then now I am primary on this one.”
  • A tip from Kari O.: “Did you know the Sam’s Club app has a scannable image of your membership card? No photo or name, just membership number and barcode. I am logged into my mothers account in Utah and when my sisters run into Sam’s Club for something they always text me “Send me the card!” And I send them a screenshot. Works every time and they don’t ask for ID. Just a strange loophole in case someone loses their card or their spouse is near Sam’s Club and forgot their card. The only bad part is the sample machines aren’t big enough for my phone to slide into. So, no free Luna bars for me. You need an actual membership card to scan in order to use them.”
  • Another from peaches: “You know you can become an associate member for $10 a year. The only downside to it is if you decide to order anything on their website. I tried to order tires on their website recently, and it asked for my sister’s password, because she is the primary member. She lives in New Orleans, and I had to call her up and ask for her password, and after asking me why I had to buy the tires online, and why did I have to buy them at Sam’s Club, and was I sure that I needed new tires, she told me that she did not have a password. She does not order much on line. She is on a guilt trip about not paying sales tax at Amazon. Yes, she can afford to pay sales tax, and plus sales tax in Louisiana is a lot less than it is here. She finally figured out that she did have a password, and gave it to me, and I copied it wrong. It was a long password. I did not want to call her back, so I ended up going to Sam’s Club, and they were able to order the tires for me on line, once I gave them my member ship card.”

School supplies

  • Some tips from mama: “The worst pencils are Target’s own. They break easily and are a waste of money at any price. Our teachers specify Ticonderoga on their lists. And it’s a huge help if you can take the time to sharpen pencils before donating :)”
  • Allison shares: “ is a good price comparison website for book rental sites. I also use when I need to sell my textbooks. I tend to find that if it is a newer book that I can sell it for a higher price using”


  • Sarah shares: “Target has a coupon $1.50/2 cleaning products. It excludes items under $1. At my store the 2 pack up&up sponges are $1.04 so double check the price at yours. Buy 2 and pay $0.58 after coupon for 4 sponges! Just did it this morning and no beeps!”
  • A scenario from Krystle: “Awesome Target trip/idea I had to share. Buy 2 bags pedigree dog food @ $12.99 ( i found 20 lbs bonus size bags), 2 x pedigree dog treats @ $2.99 each, 2 x Beneful baked delights @ $3 each, 1 12LB bag of Purina Pure Nature kitty litter @ $12.99. Total = $50.95, minus $5/15 TQ, 2x $1/1 pedigree dog food TQ printable, 2x $3/1 pedigree mfg 6/29RP, 1x $1/2 pedigree treats printable, 2x $1.50/1 Beneful baked treats 4/27SS, and 1x $2/1 purina pure nature printable NLA. Pay $21.95, plus earn $10 in gift cards from the dog food/ treat combo, and submit for the Purina Pure Nature MIR( option to submit online!) for $10.99. So 96 cents excluding tax!” She adds: “Oops meant $15/50 Pet TQ. Also tax was around $4 for me for this transaction, something to keep in mind.”
  • A deal letsshop did: “Got 3 boxes for my daughter Tampax pearl 36 ct. for about $4 (: nobody mentioned it ! isn’t it a good deal ?I am definitely to old and its been to long since I bought any !!Just trying to help my non couponer daughter .”
  • She clarifies: “$5/$15 Target coupon today’s paper and (3) $2/1 and 5 % Cartwheel and receive $5 GC making and $1.65 each”
  • And Sarah adds: “Maybe it is what I did this morning. 4 boxes of radiant tampons or pads at $4.19 each = 16.76. Use the personal care coupon, 5% cartwheel, and $2/1 coupons. Works out to a little over $3 total for all four boxes.”
  • Cynthia emails about the Frozen Sparkle Elsa doll: “I know you had posted about this doll coming in and out of stock on Amazon.  I’ve been watching the Target websites, and checked tonight and almost all the local Targets (Bolingbrook, Wheaton, Orland, etc.) have her listed “in stock” right now.  My mom picked up one in Orland for my daughter’s birthday.  Hopefully this helps other readers with Frozen fans in their homes!”

Toys R Us

  • Ruth reports: “Toys R Us had these exact same [Frozen] dresses for $19.99 as of yesterday (7/18)”


  • A deal from Maggie2: “Found a great deal on Centrum vitamins at Walgreens today. 125 count were on sale for $9.99, plus BOGO 50%. I bought two for $14.98, used a $5/2 Centrum coupon in the Wags July coupon book, and two $4/1 coupons from the 7/13 RP. $1.98 for 250 vitamins!”
  • From letsshop, you might find Capri Sun 10 packs for $2.00 and producing 2,000 points when you buy two, so net $1.00 each after points if you find this deal.

Whole Foods

  • Liz shares: “Right beside the Pacific non-dairy beverages are Dream Latte™ Coffee + Almond Non-Dairy Drinks ( They were $1.99 for me and there is a $1.00/1 in this month’s Whole Deal. Not free but only $0.99 to try something new. Maybe this will stop me from hitting Dunkin Donuts each workday morning.”
  • David says: “Last month’s whole deal (expires July 31) had $1/2 tasty bite. You can find the coupons here still
  • A find from Krystle: “K stopped at the hinsdale location on the way to breakfast this morning, picked up some free clif mojo bars, and noticed they had Kettle chips with $0.55 MFG peelies. Stacked with the instore coupon they were $1.44 each, not bad IMO. No hassle check out either, oh and Rachel is correct the way they deducted my coupons was just weird. Some scanned, and others were bulk discounted. Overall nice experience, will be adding whole foods to my monthly rotation!”
  • Diana shares: “I go to Wheaton and also can’t wait for Elmhurst to open! I have to second the bulk bins! We get dried beans, rice, oats, coconut, the list goes on and on. The bulk spices are really great and like peaches said are better quality. Plus, you only have to pay for what you need. If my memory serves me right, they had vanilla beans for around $2.60 EACH. There is also a tour you can take that will explain how to save on their items. I think you just need to ask at customer service. I only wish it was easier to know what all their prices were, on produce for instance, since I don’t go too often. All in all, I love going for the great selection and nice employees.”

Household tips

  • A question from Maggie: “Okay Trish… this is SO timely for me! We have an old cedar chest from my DH’s grandma and it has a “problem”…
    Twice this past year someone put a hot pizza box on top of this table and ruined it. Just so you know – never put a hot box on a nice wooden table, it leaves a big white mark. :) So my question is this: would your concoction work to get this stain out or is there a better way? I actually don’t know exactly why the table turned white in those places, but I don’t like it! LOL” Unfortunately, I don’t know but would love to, because we have a cedar chest with the same issue!
  • An option from Beth: “To get the “ghost ring” white marks off the table, mix equal parts toothpaste and baking soda. Rub in circular motions into white stain. Wipe with clean dry cloth. My cherry coffee table is good as new after a hot pizza box left a white stain- it’s the steam from the box pulling up the stain from the wood.”
  • And Suez shares: “Maggie…My table had the same issue. I googled a solution and found that actually using a staem iron worked!! I couldnt believe it but when i saw all of the people that swore by it i tried it. Look it up as I dont remember the exact specifics, but it was amazing. I believe you put a cloth betweeen the table and iron. Good luck”
  • Jane warns: “I would be careful with the steam iron treatment mentioned above.  My dining table is quite old and it’s top, I believe, is a real wood veneer.  I actually ruined it by steam ironing some curtains on top without putting anything else between the fabric and the table top.  I still can’t believe I did that, because I am usually the careful one in my family. So I have the dreaded white marks, but mine are in the shape of an iron…  I need to try this coconut/lemon/vinegar mix, and see what happens!”

Reader requests

  • Stacy posts in Hot Deals: “Anyone seeing any back to school deals? I am currently looking for haircuts, shoes, socks and underwear….”
  • From kelly: “Sooo, I’ve been saving up my Driscoll codes to enter in on rainy day.  Tried today and it says the survey is now closed and that they have all of the info they need?  Anybody else try lately?  I had a bunch of codes that would have given me $1 q’s.  :(  I did have that same problem as others last week with not receiving coupons after completing a survey.  They did email me my coupons yesterday.  But say it isn’t so!  Is the Driscoll Panel over and done with?”

School supplies

  • Karen shares: “I agree with Outlander on the Ticonderga pencils.  They were the best I could find while I was teaching ( 10 years)  in  elementary school. I went through fewer of these than I did the cheap ones.     They are pricey but in my opinion worth every cent.”


  • From crystal on the now more limited Mars text sweepstakes winnings: “I can also use them for my dish bill. If anyone has won and has no use fir them i’d b happy to take them. Thanks”
  • Shandelle comments: “I’m guessing they aren’t going to take the time to check 500,000 of these to make sure your cable bill is actually for cable and not just internet. I highly doubt it. Technically my RCN bill is for internet and basic cable. I don’t even know if I can rent PPV movies with basic only lol. I submitted like six of these $6 wins the cable bill credit way so I’m hoping it will knock my bill in half within 2 cycles like they said.”
  • And Charlotte shares: “I read this over at Slickdeals: I contacted TPG to inform them about the need to enter your info 4x before it goes through. They told me to select “other” as the provider and then type in my provider’s name under ‘other provider’. I did this and it went through on the first attempt. I emailed back and told them this worked and that I received a reference number….’does this mean I’m going to receive a $6 credit on my bill’? Their reply was ‘yes, you’ll receive a credit’. Time will tell.”
