I'll be out of commission for a little bit!

I will out of commission from now through the weekend for a special visit at my congregation and lots of religious activities.  But not to worry!  I have plenty of guests posts scheduled as well as a daily linky so that some of my other blogging friends can alert my readers to time-sensitive deals that I won't have time to post!  So enjoy!

Walgreens 4 day sale!

Walgreen's is having a four day sale and you can find some deals and match-ups here

Thanks Coupons Equal Cash!

Posts may be a bit delayed and sparse today

Tons to do here at work which will impede me being able to post during my break and lunchtime.  So I will get Whole Foods up when I can!

Last day to snag 80% off Gift Certificates through Restaurant.com!



This offer valid now through Wednesday 30th, 11:59PM PST. If you are interested in earning cash back on this purchase and saving even more Mr. Rebates is offering 25% cash back! So your final out of pocket cost after your rebates will be $1.50 for a $25 gift restaurant gift certificate! Not signed up for Mr. Rebates go here.
Then Search for Restaurant.com, chose a restaurant you are interested in, enter discount code: SUMMER at checkout and hit apply.
Restaurant.com Gift Certicates are a great way to reduce your spending if you want to eat out. They are like a coupon to a specific restaurant as most of them will be $25 off your purchase of $40 or more or something to that affect. Be sure to read all the details and get the best deal you can. If you spend only $1.40 out of pocket, then another $15+tax and tip at the restaurant you are saving about 50%. If you aren't interested in any cash back feel free to go directly to the website here.

15 Simple Truths about Foods: Sparkpeople SlideShow

Check out this great article 15 Simple Truths about Foods: Sparkpeople SlideShow!

I'm feeling really good about the one that says Frozen Food CAN be as nutritious or sometimes even more so than fresh food.  I really on frozen meals and veggies a lot with my hectic lifestyle!  What tips were new to you or did you like?

Updated Blockbuster Express Codes 06/29/2010


If you haven't heard by now, Blockbuster express is now appearing around Metro Detroit, attempting to compete with the success of RedBox rentals! Looks like since redbox goes after larger National stores like Meijer, 7-11 and Kroger in our area, they are tackling the smaller more regionalize grocers like VG’s, Oak Ridge Market and Hollywood Market. So I am happy to report there is now one at my local Speedway!  Additionally for a limited time Speedways are offering codes with certain purchases!  I have received two free codes already and they state they are one time use to the recipient only.  Five weeks ago they added one to the Pontiac VGs. So if you haven't checked recently check again (I did verify on the web that this was there)! You can check out locations near you here. Additionally to get these codes first and fast you will want to sign up for the blockbuster express emails on the same page. 2/3 of the way down on the lefthand side is a spot to sign up for emails.
The July monthly code is now up on the kiosks! Look for it even if you forget to bring your list! Many expire in a few days so take advantage!

*New* GL15A - Get a free rental (exp 7/30)

Thanks for all the above Coupon Dad!

G416A - Get a free rental Thanks Save the Coupons!

Add a movie to your cart, view cart, then add promo before you pay.  The cases in these are great and look sturdy and I like the style of the kiosk.  Not sure how fun an outside one will be at my speedway in the rain, but at least I have one close!
Remember these are use one per credit/debit card so you can make it stretch!  And don't forget to return before 9 p.m. the next day to avoid being charged $1 per day.  Let me know what your experience has been when them! If any of these do not work please leave a message in the comments section so I have have them removed.
These codes as of 06/29/2010 but the ones without expiration dates are iffy so be sure to take a long list with you.  (Thanks savethecoupons for letting me know to verify these on the on-line kiosk!)  You can also check them beforehand by ordering through the on the on-line kiosk here.)  How do you like Blockbuster express?

This week Kroger has a Daytona 500 promotion buy 10 items in a certain category and get $3.00 off instantly.  My ad says there is no limit but all products must be purchased in the same transaction.  That means if you buy all 10 items in the category each one will be reduced by another $.30.  Below are the participating items with coupons.  Many of these are not all that great deals but I am listing them most of them just in case anything appears on your needs list this week.  I would personally try to stick to deals only $1.00 or less.  There are always plenty of unadvertised deals so let me know if you come across any good ones!

Grocery Store Roll Call June Week 4

VGs Waterford that doubles three like coupons up to $1.00 06/21/2010 (Pictured above)
Number of Items: 35
Total Spent: $8.92 ($25 provided by Collective Bias to shop and document trip)
Total Saved: $59.56 (Truly saved $25.64)
Percentage Saved: 86.97% (Truly saved 43.05%)
Notes: As you can see a splurged a little bit since $25 was provided to me to shop.  I rarely would purchase so much meat (I got Talapia, ground beef, and chicken breast) all in one transaction.  I usually purchase one per week and freeze it.  Even still I think I got some good mark down items: Bagelfuls Bolthouse juice produce and even good prices on the meat I bought.)

CVS 06/22/2010
Purchased 8 PowerBar Gels, 1 PureProtein bar, 1 olay body wash and Lighter fluid
Total Spent: $2.10
Total Saved: $27.51
Percentage Saved: 92.91%
Notes: Used coupon for $4 off any order of $20 or more 2 Manufactuer coupons and $14 in ECBs received $9 in ECBs in return

Target 06/26/2010
Purchased 5 Healthy Choice meals and 10 Sobe lifewaters
Total Spent: 0
Total Saved: $26.68
Percentage Saved 100%
Notes: Used several coupons and paid with $14.67 worth of gift cards from previous transactions received $5.00 gift card in return

Rite Aid:
Purchased Zyrtec, Excedrin and a couple other personal products
Total Spent: 0
Total Saved: $43.12
Percentage Saved: 100%
Notes: Used $10.00 in coupons and leveraged Flexible Spending account money
(Probably will be the last time but hey it lasted me for half the year!)

Wow! I purchased $167.89 worth of products including household items for just $11.02! I am proud of myself because I controlled my spending as I went a little over budget last week, so I refrained from a couple of store trips that I might have made (Kroger and Meijer) if I still had funds. My savings percentage was 93.44% for this week! Probably won't top that again any time soon! The paid shopping trip of course helped but I wouldn't have had a low percentage of 43% actually saved it would've been closer to 66%-75% and probably not much too different out of pocket.  Plus leveraging my flexible spending account dollars for medical purchases helped as well.  How did your savings go?
