Vanish Drop Ins for $.09 at Martins

I did a little shopping yesterday and found a good deal on Vanish Drop Ins.  Here is the deal:

Single Pack of Vanish Drop Ins - $1.19 regular price
Used $.55 off coupon here - doubles to $1.10
Pay $.09

So after buying one and then putting in the downstairs toilet, I realized a few things:

1.  Lady G is way more fascinated with the toilet now
2.  Because the toilet water is BLUE
3.  I think I like clear toilet water better than blue water.
4.  I will only use these in the Master Bathroom - where G doesn't usually use the toilet.

Grocery Store Match Ups... week of 3/25

Some of you (I'm hoping someone reads this blog) may have noticed that I missed last weeks grocery store match ups... it's true, I did.  Oppsie.  Here's to catching up and getting back on track this week...

Here are the Grocery Store Match Ups
for Cecil County, MD for the week of 3/25/12:

I know I missed last weeks posting, but I hope some of you took advantage of the 'buck a bag' promo on produce last week.  I know I'm well stocked.  Here is what I see for this week:  free yogurt, cheap eggs, and the Kellogg's promo (buy 4, save $2).
Thanks, Cindy at Living Rich With Coupons.
Does anyone know if the Food Lion's in Cecil County have MVP coupon scanners at the front of the store?  I'm pretty sure NE does not.  I've seen them in Delaware and it is pretty cool, I just don't know if I'm missing it somewhere?
Thanks, Laura at A Frugal Chick

Should be up soon!

Rewards R US Super Saver Passes????

So, here is my feedback on Toys R Us/Babies R Us's new program Super Saver Passes...

Super Savers Pass

Super Savers PassPersonally, I don't believe that Toys R Us or Babies R Us have amazing prices or great deals without the use of a 20% off or some sort of coupon combined with a sale.  Don't get me wrong, I've gotten many deals there and have used lots of items from both stores for Lady G with lots of success, but in order for me to run 30 minutes to the nearest store, it has to be some amazing sales. 

Super Savers Pass
Back to the topic at hand, after Christmas the chain store created the Super Saver Passes for "loyal customers" (this could be for everyone as far as I know).  The first set of 3 coupons were distributed in February and then 3 more this March.  These coupons are very specific and only for certain items, I've pasted them through out the post.  I'm not impressed and think that Loyal Customers deserve more.

I'm hoping that maybe next month, this Super Saver Passes Program will hand out some coupons worth using.

My Awesome Trip to Rite Aid

I had the day off and ran some errands, here was my best and favorite deal of the day:

At Rite Aid, they are having a sale that if you buy $30.00 worth of Proctor and Gamble products you get a $10 UP reward (money to use on a later purchase) and $5.00 UP reward from Pampers.  So without any coupons, you can get diapers for $5.00 a pack, but don't worry, I had coupons... here is the breakdown:

First, I bought 4 packs of Soft Lips at $1.99 -
Used $2.00 off coupon from Rite Aid ad
Paid nothing- Free
Got $6.00 in UP rewards for purchasing 2 sets of three.

Then, I purchased the 3 packs of diapers $9.99 each
Used a $2.00, $1.50 and $1.50 coupon from Pampers for each pack
Used $6.00 from first purchase
Paid $19.?? for 3 packs of diapers
Got $15.00 in UP rewards
Paid $5.00 for 3 packs of Pampers Diapers

WAH HOO.... I don't buy diapers/pull ups too often now because Lady G is potty trained but I purchase some extra when the price is right... AND THE PRICE WAS RIGHT. 

The Rite Aid in North East is old and needs some updating, but I've started going there more often because the Manager, Megan is amazing.... she is so coupon friendly, loves the deals herself and will help you to find products or coupons to maximize your savings.... If you go, tell her Kristen said hello...

And now for the bad news, this deal ended March 6th.... You can only get $10.00 back in UP rewards, not both the $10 and $5.  Sorry!

Cash for Cans... getting paid for drinking all these Diet Cokes

I finally filled my trash bag full of soda cans thanks to my obsession with Diet Coke and took them to the recycling center to cash in...

Yep, that's right... $5.20.  Cha Ching!!!

I'm sure there are several places across the county that pay for cans, I went to Elkton Recycling on Dogwood Road in Elkton.  At first glance it seems like you are at a junk yard and that the clientele can look a little rough (old pick ups filled with scrap metal).  It doesn't take long and before you know it, YOU GET MONEY FOR YOUR HARD WORK DRINKING SODA (or whatever canned beverage you drink).

The employees are nice, they have been working hard to clean it up and make the place look better and they pay me money for drinking Diet Coke - can't beat it!
