This week deals

I will do more detailed and separate posts starting next week, but here is the one I put on my other blog this week to get us started:

I LOVE Rite Aid - I always get tons of free stuff (often making money!!), and cheap diapers. Yeah, I have an addiction. I used up all my up-rewards, so if I wanted to quit, now would be the time.... but I don't think it will happen (I'll detail my trip later in the post)

I have gotten so many comments that you like me posting my deals, I'll try and be better on putting them up every week (adding an *updated* to the title if I find anything later in the week), I have been lax since having Oliver :P Make sure to check out my last post on some Clearance deals I found at Target and the gifts that I made them into! Yes, I got my Martha Stewart on last week (happens like once or twice a year :P)

Freddy's has an awesome toy sale this week. Freddy's ALWAYS has awesome toy sales in October - so this is the time to get those gifts early! As you can tell from my last post, I like getting everything done EARLY!

I picked up this ball popper for Oliver for $5.99! On sale for $10.99 and coupons.com has a coupon for $5 off (normal price is $22)

Got this $20 Nerf Gun for Jonathan for $9.99! (no coupons!) They are also having a great sale - buy one get one free- on girl stuff like strawberry shortcake, barbies, littlest pet shop, Polly pocket, etc. (I would have stocked up, but I already am set on that stuff for Sabrina). So if you need any of this stuff for Christmas or birthdays - head to Freddy's and stock up this week!

Sabrina asked for one of these roll around drawers for all her art supplies for Christmas - $9.99 on sale at Target (sorry, I took the picture crooked apparently :P)

I got all this stuff at Rite Aid and I ended up making a little over $1 on it!!! That is including the expensive Mucinex (this stuff is about $12 each normally - but it REALLY works well for me, stops a cold at the start!). I didn't even need to buy the Lysol spray (cost was $1.50) to get the Lysol deal this week, (the Purex laundry detergent and Lysol wipes would have been enough, but I thought since I have 20% off everyday prices it would be under $10, but that wasn't the case), but at least $1.50 is a good price for Lysol and I LOVE Lysol spray (we have about 8 cans in our storage)...

I also could have split it up into another transaction (I did 3 transactions as it was) and used another $5 off $25 coupon, but 3 transactions was more than enough for me because I think my head would have exploded (and tried the patience of a 5 year old and 2.5 month old) trying to figure out how best to split it again :P but I still made money on it, so that's all that matters :) Plus we are all ready for cold season now :P

I'll try and list everything I used/did, but some are not available, so hopefully you already watched/printed the coupons.... I also got a paper this weekend - no idea why, just showed up at our house, so I used some coupons from it...

Add all of it up and I had a profit of $1.29 (after rebates) - used up all my up rewards (even my ones from last week, so I didn't have much out of pocket) and have about $52.40 coming back in rebates and Rite Aid SCR are so EASY :)
