Got Gas?

Okay, I couldn't help it on that title...

Anyway, go here to enter to win gas from Shell. You could win fuel for a year, or one of 104 weekly $100 gift cards!

Thanks Mojosavings!

Need Tips on Getting Started?

BeCentsAble has a great post here on getting started with coupons. She answers several questions I bet many of you are having.

Her blog is pretty cool too...take a few minutes and look around it.

Well, that figures....

Amazon is running a special this month on All You Magazine. When you order one year at $19.95, you get a $5 Gift Certificate for your next Amazon purchase.

Here's the details from Amazon's site:
$5 Promotional Certificate Offer
For each eligible subscription you purchase before October 31, you'll receive a $5 promotional certificate for use on a future purchase. See the full list of eligible magazines, with bonus certificates up to $15--the more you buy now, the more certificates you'll receive later.

Included in the list are: InStyle, Marie Claire, Coastal Living, Southern Living, Food Network, Redbook, Time, Family Fun, Maxim, Sports Illustrated and lots more!

Wouldn't you know I just put my check in the mail for my All You subscription...

Kellogg's Rebate

Go here to get more information about a Kellogg's Rebate.

Buy three specially marked Kellogg's® cereals and get $10 bonus buck to spend on electronics, toys, sporting goods, books, concessions and movies!

Codes must be entered all at one time in order to qualify to receive the certificate. Codes must be entered by 09/30/2010. Certificates expire 11/30/2010. For a complete list of participating retailers, please visit (WalMart and Target are on the list!)

Make it even better with coupons! The cereals included in the promotion are: Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats, Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes, and Raisin Bran.

There are $1.50/1 coupons here for Mini-Wheats.

Germs Be Gone!

Go here to order a sample pack of Clorox Wipes. The offer says it's for Sam's Club members only, but you can enter all zeros in the membership number and still get your sample!

Personally, we should own stock in Clorox! I use them for everything! I even get down and wipe the floors with them (well, before I was this pregnant, I did...).

*Link fixed...sorry*

Printables Reset

The printables at, and have reset for the month. When you go there, use zip code 77578 (my mom's) and you get more coupons. I guess being near a metro area helps with what you get. You can also try zip 15212 (Pittsburgh, PA) for some different ones!

Don't forget that HEB will have their monthly magazine out now too. There are usually pretty good coupons for store brand items in it. They are located on the racks by the doors where the flyers are! Don't forget to pick up the monthly deals flyer too!

Rachael Ray Nutrish Dog Food

You can score a sample of Rachael Ray's Nutrish Dog Food here. You can select if you'd rather have a coupon or a sample. I've ordered a sample and will just give it to either my neighbor or someone at church.

SC Johnson Rebate

Have you been taking advantage of the great Scrubbing Bubbles, Glade, Windex, and Ziploc coupons lately?

Well...the deal gets sweeter and sweeter. SC Johnson is very generously offering a $5 rebate here when you buy three products. This does need to be on one purchase. I recommend doing it as a separate purchase from whatever else you are buying since you have to mail in the receipt. Fine print at bottom states you may earn up to three rebates per household!

Wags Coupon Book

This is what the book looks like for October. Pick up more than one since they printed coupons on the backs of each other....

Some of the coupons include:

$1/1 Carmex original or cherry squeeze tube .35 oz 3 pack
$2/1 Excedrin Menstrual Complete Express Gels 20 ct
50¢/1 Glaceau Smart Water 1.5 liters=
$2/1 Infusium 23 leave-in treatment 16 or 33.8 oz, Shampoo or Conditioner 16 oz
$3/1 Joint Juice Glucosamine 150 mg 8 oz 6 pk
$1/4 Mentos 1.32 oz
$3/1 Mucinex 600 mg Tablets 100 ct
99¢/3 Wrigley’s Orbit Gum, 14 pack

You should be able to find this in the front of the store.

Coupon Teacher Giveaway

One of my favorite sites to check in on daily is Coupon Teacher. She's in a different state and I'm sooo jealous of the grocery deals she gets to make. Ah, one of the difficulties of living in a small town with no grocery competition!

Anyway...she has a great giveaway posted here for a Nature Valley Nut Clusters prize package. I just bought two bags of these on my last Kroger trip and they're already gone. We absolutely love them!

This package contains:

Four packages of the Granola Nut Clusters (4 different flavors)
Sling Backpack
Stainless Steel Water Bottle

There are two ways to enter...get over there, follow her and get entered! Don't forget to let me know if you win something after seeing it on my site!

Need Holiday Recipes?

Go here for an online version of Gold Medal's Whole Wheat Baking cookbook.

Anyone who wants to make me the Orange-Cranberry Scones...feel free...

Go here for Land O'Lakes "Homemade for the Holidays" cookbook. You can download this as a Free PDF.

I'm "spending out"

I've decided to take a break from the CVS/Wags game. My stock pile is huge and I have bags of things to take to the church and the men's closet.

So, I'm spending out my extra bucks and register rewards.

Today, I got 3 packs of Pampers at CVS for just $10 after all my coupons were deducted.

I'll be taking advantage of Walgreen's Buy 2, Get 1 Free Toy sale with the rest of my register rewards and putting those away for Christmas. I'll get three toys and two clearance books (fillers!) for just over $6.

I'll keep doing the matching for you and will keep letting you in on great freebies/coupons/etc. Just no more trips for us until we start running out of things...or I can get something free...

P&G Rebates!

Swag Grabber has a great post here regarding Proctor and Gamble products at Toys R Us. Looks like you get a gift card and you can send off for a free toy.

Free Starbucks

In case you haven’t seen the commercials, if you stop in at Starbucks between October 2 and 5 and take part in their VIA Taste Challenge, you’ll get a coupon for a free Starbucks Tall brewed coffee on your next visit.

Check it out here for the details! My next visit will be very soon after the taste test...

You may want to call your store to make 100% sure they're participating.

Another way to get free coffee: Check on new bags of Starbucks ground and whole bean coffee and you may find a note on stating that you will get a free 12-oz. brewed coffee when you take the empty bag into any participating Starbucks.
