No pages or food deals today but I do have something else

Just call me the deal seek fanatic lately. I love so many of the site that I thought I would share some of them with all of you. They are not listed in order of my favorites but just as I think of them. -she has some really good recipes too

There are still more sites but these are some I look at most in a day. They are pretty much the same in some areas but there is still alot to take in from each site.

Passion for savings has a run down on Wal Mart deals so I am off to see what new things I can score. My hubby and I and 2 of our sons shopped yesterday and my trunk was FULL (we couldn't see out the back window LOL) I spent less then $90.00 and I have cereal, pop tarts and dinners for the week as well as lunch stuff. I so wish we had a store that double coupons ALL the time in the Las Vegas area (not every 3 months or so).

With times being so hard right now this couponing hobby I have started doing is a huge help. I hope you and your families can score some great deals too.

Shopping is so much more fun now that I have discovered couponing. I love saving on name brands. My hubby and kids are really on board with this too. My 21 year old has even been looking up my 3 favorite sites,,, and last is I look at so many more but the list would be pretty long.

I went to Vons this past Tuesday to take advantage of their killer hamburger deal.
2 pkgs of hamburger (lean) $1.47 per lb I think I paid $11/12 dollars for both
2 Scrubbing Bubble Starter Sprayers-$6.99
2 refills-$3.99
I had 2 coupons for $5.00 off the starter sprayer making them $1.99 each
I also had 2 coupons for free refill bottles when you buy the starter kits-FREE
I paid for all 4 things $3.98
At the register after coupons I got a catilina for $4.00 off my next purchase at Vons so basically all 4 bottles were FREE
AND I had the rebate for SC Johnson (which included scrubbing bubbles)for $5.00 back
making this a $5.02 moneymaker
4 hamburger buns on sale for .99 each
2 imitation crab packs FREE in store ad coupon making them 99 cent each. I had 2 $1.00 off coupons making this FREE
2 40 oz. katchups for $1.69 each (in store ad coupon)
If you become a fan of Nabisco cookies you get a coupon buy one Nabisco cookie and 1 gallon of milk get another cookie for FREE. I also printed a coupon off of their fan page for $1/2 cookies AND the cookies were on sale. I don't know final cost but it was a great deal. I needed milk and it was a fun snack to feed the kids.

I had to make a quick run into Albertsons one morning a to get their chicken breats that were on sale but I found the meat department isn't open at 6:55 I browsed for a bit and found these 7th Generation dishwashing packets on clearance for $1.99 I knew I had 2 coupons for a $1.00 at home as well as 3 double coupons still at home. I ran home and got my coupons and went back and got all four boxes of dish washing detergent packets for $1.00. While I was home I saw another coupon for Finish dish detergent on clearance for $2.75. I had a coupon for $1.00 off and I double it so I got that Finish detergent for .75cents

I scored these dog treats at Petsmart for Free. They were $1.97 and I had 2 coupons for $2.00 off. I through in that little chew bone that was on sale for .49 cents. I have been able to score 8 of these dog treat for FREE, LOVE that!!

I promise I will post my pages this week. I have been so addicted to coupon surfing and coupon blogs that my pages and cards haven't had my attention. Scouts honor I will get my pages loaded.

Check out those sites Hip2save has some videos that are fun to watch to help you get going on saving money on your food bill.
