Don't Miss These Deals!

Being frugal is part of my lifestyle.  It started out as a necessity a few years ago, and from then grew to more of a passion.  I like love need to save money.  I guess that makes it more of an obsession...

Anyway, I know the week is drawing to a close, but I wanted to share some of what I found as "have to have" deals this week, at least in my neck of the woods.  

In preparing for back-to-school, I'm already scouring the sales ads on Sunday for the best prices and promotions.  Usually Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, and all the drug stores will offer incentives to get you in their stores.  This week, Staples caught my attention.  Here are some of their best deals this week:
  • Staples Glue 1¢ (limit 2 with $5 purchase)
  • Bic round stic ballpoint pens, black, 8 pk. 1¢ (limit 2 with $5 purchase)
  • Rose Art crayons, 24 pk. 1¢ (limit 2 with $5 purchase)
  • Scotch super glue gel 4 pk. $4.29 - $1.30 instant store savings - $2.99 easy rebate (can submit online!) = free (limit 1)
  • Paper Mate sharpwrite .7 mm mechanical pencils 25¢
  • Staples 8.5 x 11 multipurpose paper, 500 sheets $6.99 - $6.74 easy rebate (can submit online!) = 25¢ each (limit 2)
  • Bic great erase dry erase markers, fine tip, assorted 4 pack 50¢
  • Staples glue sticks, 4 pack $1
  • Also, in their ad is a coupon for $5 off a $30 purchase.  So I added a couple more things (a nylon pencil pouch, on my son's school supply list, along with a dry erase lined marker board for him, and a pink gel pen for me) to get up to the $30 mark, and used the coupon to bring my order down to around $26.  THEN, I also get back $9.53 in rebates, making my total for all these things around $17.  "That was easy."

Other deals:
  • Kroger has their Top Flight spiral notebooks on sale for 19¢ each (limit 10), and their Crayola crayons 24 pk. for 39¢ (limit 10)
  • Ivory soap is on sale at Walgreens for 99¢  Use the $1 coupon from the most recent Procter & Gamble coupon insert to get FREE Ivory bar soap.
  • Bayer aspirin is always a good price at WalMart.  Use the recent $3 coupon to get many varieties of Bayer aspirin (including children's) free.
  • Zest body wash is on sale at Rite Aid for $2.99.  You get a $2 +UP (Rite Aid) reward on this, and there was a $1 coupon in this week's coupon inserts, making this free.  (Limit 2)
  • Also at Rite Aid, Powerade is 97¢.  Sign up for Rite Aid Video Values, watch a video here and earn a printable coupon for $1.50 off 2 PowerAde drinks, bringing down your total to 44¢ for 2.
  • At CVS, Purex Crystals are on sale B1G1F (by the way, I love, love, love these!) use 2 $1 Internet printable coupons (from Facebook) and get these 2/$3.  Edit - these were around $7 at my store, so they ended up being 2/$5-ish.  Still a good deal for how much I love them!
Good luck with your shopping this week!
