So my friend Jana stopped by Artco this week and told me that they have some paper and card stock on sale even cheaper than usual. So go check it out!


So I was thinking with all the candy in stores right now and with Halloween coming up we could all share the Candy deals we have found. Just post them in the comment section.

Oh also I heard that Old Navy is going to have a HUGE sale on their Halloween costumes this Friday and Saturday. I would go on-line and check it out if I were you. Perhaps get a few costumes for next year REALLY cheap.

Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure

Disney has a coupon for $10 off this Tinkerbell DVD/Blu-ray combo set. Go tho this link to find the coupon. I have see this movie and think it's cute and teaches lots of morals especially to girls.

I would try using it at Wal-mart, K-mart OR Toys R'Us. You might be able to call the store ahead of time or look on line to see what prices they offer on this product. I got my snow white one at Albertsons last time because they offered other free product when you bought the movie plus I could use the coupon so it worked out fine. So look around. Mine says it expires on Oct. 31, 2009.

Walgreens - How to use Register Rewards

If you want to get the best deals at Walgreens you need to understand register rewards so you can plan out the best deals.

PYP has a great article on this at this link. It's on Facebook, so you may have to have a Facebook account to read it. I am not sure.

Did you know....

You can get a box of bananas at Broulims for $7.00!
They are the ones that are starting to ripen fast.

They keep them under the normal bananas in the store in boxes. It's better to get them during the day so that the produce people can help you. Sometimes if those people are gone some other workers don't know if they can sell them to you or not.

The picture shown above has already been emptied of some of the bananas I peeled and cut so far. The box was completely full to the brim when I bought it.

This is not a one time deal it is just something they always do. So if you are a banana lover, this is great!

I have a food dehydrator so I bought them to make banana chips.


Here are some other ideas of how to use this many bananas:

- Have a banana split party
- Make LOTS of banana bread
- Have a fondue party
- Use them for weddings, family reunions, etc.
- Make lots of banana malts
- Mix with other fruits to make smoothies
- Mix with other fruits to make fruit leather

If you have more ideas please comment!

Broulims Deals This Week!

This is the coupon strip found on the Broulims store ad.
These are NOT manufactures coupons. So they can be stacked with a manufacture coupon for even better deals.

You have two days to get the Broulims deals this week! Some of the best deals are the ones on the coupon strip that is stuck to their ad (see above picture).

What you want to do is look at those coupon deals then see if you have (or can find) any other manufacturer coupons to stack on top of these. If you have good ones you can get the products really cheap or free.

I am going to try and get the Kraft Ranch Dressing for FREE by using an on-line manufacturers coupon I printed a couple weeks ago, and then stacking it with the stores in-ad coupon.

Here is another example I found for the Kraft cheese coupon......

Here is a cheese coupon you can stack with one in the ad. The sale is Kraft Natural Shredded Cheese 8 oz .99 cents each when you buy 2 (with $1/2 in-ad coupon), so use the printable coupon $1 off 2 and get two bags for $.99 OR $.50 each. That ends up being $1 a pound (16oz).

Go to this blog to look for more deals you may be able to stack coupons on.

Free Coupon Booklet!

Go here to get a free coupon booklet from Home Made Simple.

Catalina Coupons

So when I first started using coupons the word "catalina" seemed strange and too hard to comprehend. After a while I got a better understanding of these and have even used a few BUT they are still a scary topic for me sometimes.

However there is help! Look at this link from "Mama Cheaps!" She talks about different stores than we have in our area but the concept is the same.

Free VIRTUAL makeover!

Just for fun!

Go here to get a free virtual makeover from "mylifetime". I think you can also get a free one at

Great Deals This Week!

Kmart has lots of sales going on right now at the Rexburg store.

1. Winter coats and some other gear are 30% off.
2. Summer clothes are $2.99, even swim suits.
3. Huggies Products are buy $25 worth and get $5 .
Buy $50 worth and get $12 . If you use Huggies manufacture coupons on top of that
deal you can get diapers for a great price.
4. They also have shoes and more on sale right now.

I would say it would be worth your time to stop by their store.

The light bulb on sale is only a ONE pack but is the same type as the picture.

Want some FREE light bulbs?!!! Who doesn't?!
In the Smart Source Sunday paper insert this week they have $1 off any GE energy light bulb.

Broulims has the above pictured SINGLE light bulb on sale for $1 each. Thus, you can get them for free (plus tax).

I asked if they would have them in stock and they said yes, they have a whole bunch, so I would ask if you don't see them. I found them in the light bulb isle BUT I have seen them other places in the store too.

Go to this link to print off a coupon for $10 off the new Snow White DVD/Blue-ray combo. Then look here to see the Toys "R"US sale on the movie. You may even want to wait for another deal later on around Thanksgiving. Either way $10 off a Disney movie is good.

QUESTIONS? Please Post!
Oh and don't forget to attend the FREE coupon class mentioned below!
