I'm back and have lots of deals for you!

I haven't looked at Kroger this week, but here are some other great deals!
**Bath and Body Works is having their semi-annual sale. This lasts until the end of January with different product lines featured each week. This week it is the Spa line, which I love and the products are buy 2, get 2 FREE. I especially like the socklets, "Look Ma, New Hands!" hand lotion, and the "Shea It Isn't So" foot lotion. Check it out in stores and online: www.bathandbodyworks.com There is a really cute tote online only with any purchase for $6. Search google for an in store coupon to print...we found one for $10 off a $30 purchase.
**Victoria's Secret is also having their semi-annual sale, but I haven't checked it out yet. This is online www.victoriassecret.com and in stores.
**Old Navy has many items (not in my size of course) on sale for 75% on their website....www.oldnavy.com
**Target had many baby basics on sale when I went in this week. Things like onesies, sleepers, gowns, etc...

From My Friend Janine

"Hi Joy. still can't post to your site but wanted to get this out. Nothing bugs me more...well that isn't entirely true but it is certainly annoying, when the soap from Bath & Body Works is stuck on the botom and you can't get it. I've tried dumping one bottle onto the other one, that jsut makes a mess. So now I add about 6-8 drops of water and shake it up a bit. It thins it out just enough that I can pretty much use the rest up! Yeah!"

Gap's Give & Get

I got an email from Gap this week. It is promoting 30% off Nov. 13-16th. It has a barcode in the email that I print out and take in or a code to use online. They are saying that friends and family can use it too-as many times as we want. Also, when used, 5% of total will be donated to the nonprofit of my choosing, there are about 6 choices. So, if you want to use it, email me and I'll be happy to share my 30% off!

Bath & Body Works Antibacterial Hand Soap

Bath & Body Works is having a sale on all the antibacterial hand soaps...4 for $10. This is the cheapest I have seen them in a long time. :) I had filled out a survey for them in September and got a coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase. SO, I got 12 for $20 (Who needs that much soap? I am splitting it with a friend.) Then they gave me a coupon for a future purchase $10 off $30 purchase. It has to be used by Christmas Eve. What a great deal! Guess what all our relatives are getting for Christmas?! :) This sale is also going on online on their website with free shipping on orders over $60.

UPDATE: I got an email today (Monday) saying the sale ends tomorrow. :)

Target Halloween Clearance

I went by our Target on Tuesday. The Halloween costumes, decor, even candy was all 75% off. I bought a big bag of candy to save for the kids' Christmas stockings, if Chad and I don't eat it all first. :) And on Saturday when it was only 50% off I got Wilder a SpiderMan costume for $5. Even Adeline keeps trying it on. :) All these items are in the back corner between the toys and home improvement areas.

Kroger Coupons

Through other blogs I frequent, I found two new websites to use to upload coupons to your Kroger card! I already knew about going to the Kroger site and uploading P & G brand coupons to your card, but now you can use cellfire.com and shortcuts.com as well to load coupons right onto your card. The cellfire site says you need a cell phone with texting, but I just entered my home phone number and when I tried to log in later, it worked! Some of these deals match items on sale this week! Plus you can print paper coupons at coupons.com. Match all of these with Kroger sales this week, which are great and you are getting some awesome deals!!!!!!! Please leave a comment on this post letting us know what deals YOU got!


Kerry says that if you vote on Tuesday and tell them at Starbucks, then they will give you a FREE tall coffee. :)

Rite Aide Deals 10/27/08

So, I don't really like Rite Aide. We live very close to it, but the pharmacy is slow and the store isn't very clean. HOWEVER, Kerry turned me on to Rite Aide rebates. The single check rebates are easy. Just buy the products that have a rebate, pick up a rebate book at the store, keep your receipt, and submit all your deals to receive a check! So, this week they have Kotex products and Oral B Artica toothbrushes that are FREE after you get back the rebate. I have also gotten chapstick and children's Tylenol cold medicine FREE this month.

My friend Dennise asked me to post this. I have actually been following Freecycle for awhile now and did not know that it is still a secret to many of you! :) Freecycle.org is this wonderful gem that allows you to post items you want to get rid of and you can take other poster's items. It all has to be free. You sign up by location. I am a member of the Morgantown, Clarksburg/Harrison County, and Fairmont groups. I have gotten rid of some stuff around here and have gotten some good free stuff. I post it and someone says they want it and I give them directions and they pick it up off my porch and its gone! :) I also have received a few items others have listed. You can even say that you are "in search of" items. Check it out!
