Internet service

  • From feelgood: “looking for cheaper internet service, you may want to look into this offer on Groupon. You can get up to 500 mb a month free, or 2 gb for $17.99. Don’t get the stick, it’s only for one device…the Photon is a hotspot and several devices can sign on at the same time. Uses 4G Sprint. Lots of mixed reviews on freedompop, though.”


  • Kari O. shares: “I found after Easter Fresh Turkey and Turkey Breasts for 99¢/lb at two different Jewel-Osco’s today. Not a bad price since there’s no minimum purchase and it’s not Thanksgiving. We got 2 for the freezer. I’m also searching for clearanced Easter hams too. Has anyone seen any markdowns on those?”

Mobile phone plans

  • April shares: “For a cell phone plan I use Family Mobile from Walmart. It’s based on Tmobile network . $45 per month includes unlimited talk and text + 5 gb Internet access. I think you can add additional lines for $10-15. The draw back that you can’t recieve any of text massages from Target with coupons”


  • A tip from Matt: “When you go to the resale shop look for ink that matches your printer. Every once in a while I find expensive ink for under $5. Sometimes the outer box is damaged and the ink is sealed inside.”

Reader requests

  • An Ultra Foods question from Jeff: “Does anyone know if the aloha Hawaaian punch is included in the sale to use the 1.00 off coupon tia”
  • From benita: “I am looking for a wedding dress for a friend. Last year house of hope in arlington heights has a may bridal sale, but they are no longer running the sale. Goodwill and the Salavation Army is a hit or miss. Does anyone know of sample sales, charity shops, etc for wedding dresses. The wedding is a year away, so if the sale is later in the year that is ok.”
  • An idea from Samantha: “I had seen this in the Sunday Trib and it looked cool”
  • Martina says: “Low in Kellogg’s Raisin Bran as well. Thank’s again :0)” There is a $3.00/3 printable here. Anyone know of a good place to use it?
  • She also is: “Looking for a deal on Flushable Cleansing Cloths (Scott, Cottonelle…). Thank you :0)” This Amazon deal is one idea, any others?


  • For the Method deal, liz noticed: “theres a $1.00 off handwash method on my shopmium also!”
  • A baby food deal from andi: “check’s post (search Ella) on some of the recent baby deals. I got 4 pouches of Ella’s organic baby food for a friend for $0.40 total, or 10 cents each. TotallyTarget provides a link to a $1 printable, which works on a single item (obviously, you’ll need multiple printers as it’s 2 per [computer]). Then, Target text club for baby deals provides a $1.50/4 Target coupon. Lastly, I had 10% on Cartwheel (not sure when this expires). Had I been able to get ALL Strawberry apple, it would have been $0.06 total for all four. However, store was picked over, and I had to get other pouches with a ring price of $1.77 (the strawberry/apple was $1.39). Then used my redcard, of course.” Unfortunately, the Cartwheel expired 4/19.


  • Tamara found: “Free Glade Decor refills at Walgreens. $1 each when you buy 3. Buy 4 at $1 and use two $2/2 from rightathome.”


  • On the Hamburger Helper deal, Jane says: “I just printed up the rebate and it is limit 2 offers per address! I wonder how much ground beef is at Walmart anyway? That is $12.88 worth of free meat!” Not sure, but you could price match that as well!

    For bridal check the most upscale consignment shops in your area- that’s how I got rid of mine.
    Next marriage ceremony was at the courthouse—LOL.

        For Benita–

        I was just at Stratford Square Mall in Bloomingdale. There’s a store there called Total Wedding. I noticed they were having 50% off on wedding dresses. Looked like a pretty good selection. The store is on the upper level across from JC Penney.

    • Jamie says

      Check craigslist and Facebook groups. There are also wedding blogs- I don’t remember the name but it was only 5 years ago but I had posted my dress. It never sold but it was kind of expensive.

  2. Debbie says

    I don’t know where Martina lives or if she has a Schnuck’s close by but ending tomorrow (April 22nd) select Kellogg’s cereals are $2.38 on sale and when you buy 4, you get $2 off making it $1.88.

    • Martina says

      I do not have a Schnuck’s near by, but thank you :0). I shop at Ultra Foods, Meijer, Jewel.. in Darien

  3. Rosemary says

    What style of wedding gown is she looking for? I was just thinking of giving mine to Goodwill. It’s a princess poofy tulle skirt style. Let me know. Rose

  4. linda says

  5. Beth says

    Wedding Belles in Barrington sells sample dresses and on consignment. I paid about $400 for my dress there in 2005. Wouldn’t know what the prices are like these days, but I had a great experience there when I was a bride.

  6. Joanne says

    For the person looking for wedding dresses – there is a little thrift store in Tinley Park – called NU2U – 170th Oak Park Avenue – every so often they get a donation from bridal salons of the sample dresses – they don’t have much left now(a couple of racks – a few months ago they had so many dresses, they held a special sale at t different location) – but they are only $15 – the fabric and ornamentation on the dresses is worth more than that. I think its worth a trip – you can ask when they’ll get the next shipment in(if they know they also had bridesmaid, mother of the bride, etc.

    Bridal shop in west dundee having one day sample sale I think it is April 26th. Give them a call. saw sign as I drove through town but not really looking for that.

  8. Suzann says

    I am one of the readers in Houston so my consignment shop will not work for you looking for a bridal gown but
    try the upscale consignment stores in your area perhaps even phoning ahead so you don’t waste gasoline. This
    used to be a decent resource but I do not know what it has evolved into–David’s Bridal.

  9. Matt says

    Your cheapest Internet service is going to probably be taking your laptop to places with hot spots like the public library. If you don’t have a laptop I’m almost 100 percent certain that nearly every library in America has the Internet and will let you use it if you have an ID. Some places may only allow you to use the express station if you’re not a card holder, but free is free. In other countries they have Internet cafes where you have to pay by the minute, so going to a public library is not bad at all. Also if you live near COD they have a couple hundred PCs, about 20 iMacs and free wifi that you can use anytime the library or computer lab is open.
