Deals and Politics

I’m done writing about politics until there’s something to write about. I mean, really. How many conversations can we have over “Can Hillary Win?” before we all start beating our heads against the wall? Day 356 of the seige (I exaggerate) by talking heads who don’t seem to have anything else interesting to talk about. Obama can’t get enough delegates to win without Superdelegates. Hillary can’t get enough delegates to win without Superdelegates. Okay. Seems to me that its pretty even. He may be ahead, but not by enough to actually WIN. And as Jon Stewart and Howard Dean have both pointed out, the Democratic Party is not going to be destroyed by too much democracy! How great is it that KY and IN actually have candidates visiting us? Its unheard of. I’ve had enough of morning after morning of waking up to urgent news–Can Hillary Win? Its the same thing every day! There are weeks until the next primary, and I’m soooo tired of hearing it!

And no, Mark Penn leaving Hillary’s campaign is not worth my breath. That stuff happens daily in the political world. He makes more at his day job. Case closed.

Okay, so onto the deals! Late last week I stumbled on a Pantene deal at Target. I wish I’d known sooner, I would have shared it with all of you. Essentially, Target paid me $90 in gift cards to buy a gazillion bottles of shampoo. The little Know it All’s will both graduate high school before we run out. And if you know us, you know that’s a long, long time!

But on to this week’s deals.

Kroger–Kroger continues to be the place where its at. They have too many deals to list them all here, but I will highlight my favorites. This week continues the $5 off 10 items marked with the special yellow tags. This is a mix and match sale. My favorites? Goldfish crackers on sale for $1 a bag. Buy 10, get the $5 off and pay only .50 a bag! Same for Kroger Toaster Tarts, Pillsbury rolls and cinnamon rolls. I also love the Kraft cheese deal. Buy 10 bags at $2 each and get $5 off. If you look online, on ebay at Danica’s store you can often find Kraft coupons. I have them for $3 off right now. I’ve also heard there are $1 off 2 packages in blinkies at Kroger stores. Now, if you don’t have coupons, that’s 10 packages of Kraft cheese (singles, bars and shredded) for only $15, or $1.50 each. If you have any coupons, they can be anywhere from $1 each to as little as $.00!! Needless to say I’m stocking up! Two more at Kroger–Healthy Choice Pizzas. $1.50 a box, mix and match 10 for $5 off. In my Kroger are blinkies for .50 off 3. That doubles, to $1 off 3. Use 3 coupons, those come down to $ 8 for 10 boxes. Not bad! Lastly, Eggo’s are $2.50 a box (an inflated price from normal) but there are .55 cent off coupons in the paper, which double to $1. Add in the $5 off 10, and they come out to $1 a box. Same as generic or store brand, but my kids love those Eggo muffin tops and waffle sticks!

Meijer–Meijer has a great deal on General Mills and Cheerios cereals. They are 4 for $10, with $4 off at the register. Print two coupons for $1 off 2 cheerios, and these are now 4 boxes for $6! Also, I see Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain breads are on sale for $1 each–an excellent buy. These are true whole grain without a lot of corn syrup and other additives! I can’t find any q’s for them, but if I do, I’ll post them here. I also see Rice a Roni for $1 each. Go to Smartsource.com and Coupons.com and print off q’s for Nature’s Way Rice a Roni to make them free! Meijer also has the Eggo’s on sale, 4 for $6, so if you use your .55 off q here, which doubles up to two coupons, that brings the boxes to .50 each, an even better price than Kroger!

Target this week has Kellogg’s Raisin Bran Crunch for $2.50 each. Go to coupons.com and smartsource.com and answer their questions (answer both with “D”) to get a coupon for either $3 off 2 boxes or $3 off 3. If you’re lucky enough to get the $3 off 2, that’s $1 a box for Raisin Bran Cruch, normally $3 a box!

If you live in Boone or Kenton County, consider stopping by the brand new Kroger Thursday through Sunday of this week. Why? Not only do they have the $5 off 10 items sale, but they have 1/2 gallons of milk for $1! Can anyone say “time to clean out the freezer?” Let’s hope they don’t put a limit on them!

Last, Walgreens is at it again! Last week I had reports (and experience) with the free ink refills deal. Some of it went well, some not so well. One store I went to its machine was down completely. This week Walgreens is offering free 1 hour photo development! So go dig out those old rolls you’ve got lying around, waiting to be developed, and drop them off at Walgreen’s. Wednesday only!

Oops, one more! I haven’t confirmed this myself, but I read over at HotCouponWorld.com that Kroger is giving away free Glucerna again! Go to Glucerna.com, print out a $1.50 off coupon for Glucerna products. Go to Kroger, buy Glucerna cereal, and it will print out a coupon for a free box! This rolls, according to those who have done it. Again, I haven’t tested it so I won’t speak on whether or not it works, but I will be trying it out tomorrow!

Good Savings!

ETA:

Wow, the savings keep adding up!  I’ve just found that Walgreens is selling Honey Bunches of Oats for $2 a box.  Well, go to this site and print out a plethora of coupons for $2 off any box.  (yes, it says chocolate, but it works on any.)  Free cereal!
