I wished for a deal on olive oil…

.. and then went to ALDI. I was just thinking I needed to buy more olive oil soon, and the Villa Park ALDI on Roosevelt today had organic extra virgin Greek and Spanish olive oil on clearance for $2.49. So I kind of bought six bottles. (This made up for the insane road construction getting there — Roosevelt down to one lane from three, fun times.)

Now I will wish for a deal on shredded cheese and Purina ONE cat food. How about you?

My store still had a stack of the ads ending today with the $3.00 meat coupon. I just got tomorrow’s ad in the mail and it does not have another coupon, so you might want to grab an ad if you are out today, as the coupon is good through 9/8. So $15 in olive oil and 3 lbs of expensive-but-don’t-want-to-make-another-stop-potatoes later, I managed to spend an unprecedented $31.82 at ALDI today…

3 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, $2.79.
Organic soy milk, $2.19.
Half & half, $1.89.
One of those natural-ish whole chickens, $5.20. Used the $3.00 meat coupon.
12 oz shredded cheese, $2.49.
Kids cheese slices with animal faces (lol), clearanced at $.99.
Tortilla chips, $.79.
6 bottles organic olive oil, $14.94.
6 avocados, $2.94.

Spent $31.82.

Rolling rolling rolling, keep that thrifting rolling…

PSA for the day — if you haven’t yet used the 50% off Savers coupon that was in some midweek ads a while back, today is the last day! I went a little nuts with mine today, and then… oh no!… they gave me a new 50% off coupon at checkout, good for one week only.

I did, however, manage to resist coming home with this rather disturbing t-shirt, cheap as it was…

savers831

So yeah. I spent $54.43 (!) at Savers today. My main goal was to pick up new t-shirts for Mr. Gangly Junior High Guy, since belly shirts are not a good look for teenage boys and he grew about 4 inches over the last six months. :) So:

6 short sleeve tees for the boy
1 long sleeve tee for the boy
1 button down white shirt for the boy
Crocs for next summer (for the other boy!)
2 canisters
A soup mug/bowl thing
An apple corer/peeler/slicer! (Hope this works — it was plastic bagged and I’m not sure yet.)
A maxi dress
3 skirts
A pair of pants
4 shirts

That’s more than I intended to spend, but not a bad haul. If I go back with the other 50% off coupon, I’ll be more restrained!

Did you get the Savers 50% off coupon? What did you score with yours?

Net $2.02 at CVS shopping — Haagen-dazs is $1.75 after coupons!

Stopped by CVS this morning and totally forgot to check if the Tums were working — anyone? 😉 Also looked at the Excedrin, which was up to a ridiculous $6.29 (!). But I had a $5/$25 in my email this week, so:

Snack size Abound popcorn, $1.00. Used $1.00/1 that came in the mail.
2 boxes Cheerios, $4.00. Used two $.75/1 printables and a $1.00/2 cereal CRT.
2 Gatorade, $2.00.
Colgate MaxFresh, $3.00. Used $1.00/1 from the 8/30 SS and $2.00/1 from the magic machine.
Dean’s milk, $2.89. Used $.55/1 from the 6/28 SS.
2 Haagen-dazs ice cream, BOGO at $5.49. Used two $1.00/1 printable coupons.
2 Starbucks iced coffee, BOGO at $1.99. Used $1.00/1 printable (no longer available), $.50/1 CVS coupon, and got back $1.00 on Ibotta.
2 L’Oreal Advanced shampoo, $9.00. Used two $2.00/1 in the 8/30 RP.

Used my $5/$25 coupon and paid with $9.00 ECB and $2.02. Got back $8.00 in ECB ($1.00 milk, $4.00 L’Oreal, $2.00 Gatorade, $1.00 cereal) and $1.00 from Ibotta for a net cost of $2.02.

Stopped by ALDI today to get some things for our salsa chicken dinner tonight — needed tortillas, was almost out of cheese (come ooooon cheese deal…) and couldn’t pass up more $.49 avocados!

2 cans clearance organic refried black beans, $.49.
4 avocados, $1.96. Will get back $.25 from Checkout 51.
Corn tortillas, $.33.
Flour tortillas, $.85.
Raspberries, $1.29.
12 oz shredded cheese, $2.49.
Tortilla chips, $.79.

Paid $8.84 with $.25 back for a net cost of $8.59. I usually buy their restaurant style tortilla chips, but figured since the rounds are on sale this week we’d give them a try.

So when you find someone has left a quarter already in your ALDI cart, do you always pay it forward? :)

What did you get from Amazon subscribe & save this month?

Here’s what I got in mine! Prices include tax. 😉

So, $36.27 total. Other than the L’Oreal, I told you about all the other deals at the time I ordered them — so hope some of you got in on these prices as well. What great subscribe & save deals have you gotten lately?

FREE-VS shopping + the random online deals

cvs-myweekly-random

Last night I told you about these random CVS deals that were showing up in the online myWeeklyAd but not in the paper ad:

  • Buy Edge or Skintimate shave gel psa $2.99, get $2.00 ECB limit 1. (Use $1.00/1 in the 8/16 SS.)
  • Buy Boiron Calendula cream for $8.99, get $6.00 ECB limit 1. (Use the $5.00/1 printable here.)

Both deals were tagged in my store this morning. The Calendula printed, but the Edge didn’t so they had to generate it manually. Although it did show in the “This week’s ECB offers” at the bottom of my receipt, which is weird, and doesn’t show offer limit reached.

Everything is free at CVS shopping

cvs-823

So here’s today’s trip:

2 Stayfree, $5.98. Used the $1.00/1 printable here, $1.00/1 in the 8/23 SS, and a $3.00/2 CVS store coupon that came in the mail. (Which I just noticed came off as $2.00. Um…?)
Calendula cream, $8.99. Used the $5.00/1 printable.
Dean’s milk, $2.89. Used a $1.00/1 printable (no longer available).
Caliber tape, $1.49.
2 Tena liners, $5.98. Used two $2.00/1 printable coupons.
Edge shave gel, $2.99. Used $1.00/1 in the 8/16 SS.

Used a 30% coupon that came in email, which took off $.90 (Edge is the only thing that qualified) and $10 ECB. Paid $3.91 and got back $14.10 in ECB ($6.00 Calendula, $1.00 Stayfree, $1.00 milk, $1.10 tape, $3.00 Tena, $2.00 Edge) $.20 from Ibotta for milk for a net cost of … I’m up $.39 this morning!

Buying men’s razors at CVS… for me

schick5

I’m not the only one who does this, right? Who else here prefers the “men’s” Schick Hydro 5 to the wimpier Schick Hydro Silk targeted at women? MashupDad likes this brand too, so since I got a $10/$30 Schick razor coupon from the magic machine on Sunday I went back and did this:

Three Schick Hydro 5 razors, $35.97. Used $10/$30 CVS store coupon and three $4.00/1 from the 7/26 SS1.

Paid with $13 in ECB and $3.94 ($2.97 of that was tax!). Got back $10 in ECB for Schick, for a net cost of $6.94 for all three.

Only slightly frustrating CVS shopping — Net $2.50

I had a $5 ECB I needed to roll today as well as a $6/$30 coupon that came in email, so stopped by CVS this morning.

  • The price on Blue Diamond almonds went up at my store, to $5.49. Boo.
  • The Speed Stick Gear was $5.29, and I didn’t realize til I got to the register that the BOGO only goes up to $4.29. Boo again. :)

Still and all, this worked…

4 cans of the BOGO Blue Diamond almonds, $10.98 Used four $2.00/1 printables.
2 Suave Gold whatever shampoo & conditioner, $6.00. Used BOGO from the 7/26 RP2.
2 Snickers bars, $1.98. Used BOGO printable + $.74 coupon from the magic machine.
Scotch packing tape, $1.99. Used $.50/1 from the 8/9 SS.
Paper Mate pens, $1.29. Used $1.00 from the magic machine and $.55/1 from the 7/26 SS2.
Almay eye liner, $6.99. Used $4.00/1 from the 8/9 SS and $3.00/1 CVS coupon that came in the mail.
2 Speed Stick Gear deodorant, $10.58. Used BOGO from the 7/26 SS2 (took off $4.29).

Used my $6/$30 coupon and $6 in ECB. Paid $3.50 and got back $7 in ECB: $4.00 for deodorant, $2.00 for Suave, and $1.00 for packing tape. Net cost: $2.50. I also got $5.00 Pharmacy Rewards today, so technically I guess I’m up $2.50 for the day… Oh, and I just saw $.20 back on shampoo on Ibotta, so there’s that! Will go back for milk later in the week for a longer expiration date.
