Great Giveaways for Teachers

There are going to be some great giveaways dedicated to teachers, like me, on one of my favorite blogs. You can check it out starting November 28 at Surviving a Teacher's Salary. And since it is not quite the end of November yet, you might want to visit earlier and see what other giveaways are being offered for even the non-teachers. Crystal, the teacher's wife, works hard to show you how to survive on any salary you might have!

Cheap Huggies Deal

SO here is a deal for my dear friends in need of diapers....
(To my loves' God-parents... I have coupons to share with you to make this work since my big boy has peed on the potty and actually doesn't fit in size 5 pure and natural anymore....)


Buy 3 packs of Huggies Pure and Natural $26.97
use $4 off $20 from Video Values or $5 off $25 from Redplum
use 3 of the $3 either from smartsouce or from an mailer in snail mail
use $2 from the Video Values
Pay $10.97 or $11.97 out of pocket and get back $6 in +ups

Buy another package
use another $3 coupon and the $6 +ups to make this free and get another $2 +up.

So that makes 4 packs for either $8.97 or $9.97 total.
That makes these $2.24 to $2.49 per pack.

(This deal would still work with the $2 coupons from the Sunday inserts for the Snugglers but wouldn't be quite as good.)

And to anyone wanting to get coupons for baby products in the mail, see my post on babies.

These are also on sale at Wegmans this week 2/$4. Use the $1 printable from their website to make these $1 each.

If you see anything I should add leave a comment!

Wegmans Stop

I apologize for not posting much this week. I was at a conference for 2 days and preparing sub plans and all else for those days kept me up late at night. Plus I have no clue why, but I keep falling asleep at strange early hours since about Wednesday Maybe I was catching up from the late nights...

Anyways, here is what I got last Sunday that might peak your interest:

More Ronzoni Quick Cook $1.69 (used $.55 peelies that doubled)
Got these for $0.59 each

Triscuit Thin Crisp $2.69 (Used a freebie coupon from Kraft First Taste)
Got these for $0.00

I grabbed these but put them away before I got to the picture. Perry's Ice Cream was also on sale for $2.99. I love Wegmans Ice Cream, but there are a few flavors I think are better by Perry's.

Did you have any great finds at Wegmans this week?

Rite Aid Trip

Well, this may be one of the last really good Rite Aid trips if they get rid of the $5 off $25. It becomes a whole new ball game. If you don't know what I'm talking about, it seems that Rite Aid is not accepting the pdf $5 off $25 that recently came out... nope not taking the one that expires in Oct or the Nov... ugh... But you know what, they have been really good to us with putting out those coupons all the time and also giving out the "seemlingly limitless" plus ups. I know that I have seen that there are some people out there taking advantage of the system. They use ten copies of the coupon in one week and clear the shelves. So I am just going to have to be more creative with the coupons they do release and a little more stingy on the purchases I will make. When I first started shopping at Rite Aid there weren't that many $5 off $25 coupons available and there was no such thing as +ups. So we'll just have to see and be thankful for the items we were able to stock up on while we could.

Anyways, here is what I was able to do this week to save the family some money:

Transaction #1
I bought 2 bottles of Nyquil 2/$8

I used:
$1 off $1 Video Value Coupon
2 - $1.50 off Nyquil Coupons
2- $1 +ups from last visit

So I paid $2 oop plus tax and then got $3 back in +ups. So that made this a $1 money maker. This wasn't a huge gain, but my husband uses this product quite a bit in the cold season and I wanted to stock up.

Transaction #2

I was in desperate need of diapers (I had 3 left.... only using Pampers Cruisers sure makes it hard to save... but it is what his butt likes....)

I bought 1 box of Pampers $19.99 (not pictured because they were opened right away) and one bottle of glue $0.25 (filler to get over $20).

I used:

$4 off $20 from Video Values
$1 off Pampers from the P&G insert

I paid $15.24 plus tax and got back $4 in +ups (Making this around $11.24) This was not the best, but we were in need.

Transaction #3

I bought:

2 Nivea Men's Wash
2 Nivea Women's Wash (All 4 for $15.96 or $4.99 each)
1 Bee MD cough drops $2.49
Cold Buster $6.99

Total $25.44 plus tax
I used $5 off $25 (This Oct pdf worked fine last Monday for me... who knows know.)
2- $3 off Men's Nivea
$3/2 Women's Nivea
$7 in +ups from the past 2 transactions

So then I paid $4.44 oop and got back $5 in +ups. I will also get back $2.49 and $6.99 in SCR.

So all in all, after all +ups and SCR for all 3 transactions I really only spent about $5. Now, it took more than that oop so I hate to think about it that way because I had to have to money up front to purchase these things, but I will be getting a big fat check from Rite Aid once this period of SCRs is over!!!!!!

Free Calendar

It is crazy how fast this year has gone by. You can request a free calendar from Oriental Trading here to get ready for 2011 since it will be here before ya know it. And the calendar will be there quick too. When I requested it said 7 to 14 business days :)

In my Mailbox & a Giveaway

I recently received this awesome "Make your own Gummies Kit" and Glee Gum in the mail. My daughter and I are very excited to get a chance to try this out. I will be updating soon with my review and the info for a giveaway sponsered by Glee Gum.

Local Frugal Fun

If you live in the Rochester area you may have been brought up to believe that there is nothing to do around here. That was at least the famous words that always came out of the mouths of classmates and other I grew up with. But there is actually quite a bit to do and see and much of it is great fun.

Stephanie, who used to live in Rochester, wrote a great post with links on Poorer than You. You can check it out here and find something fun to do this weekend.

Crystal Body Deodorant

As a member of the One 2 One network, I was notified that there would be a special on Crystal Body Deodorant at Rite Aid and Walgreen next week. The stick deodorant will be on $1 off and the roll-on and spray version will be $0.50 off. I plan to check out the prices next trip so that I can give you an idea of how much this might be at your store.

The Crystal Body Deodorant claims to be an "un-odorant". In other words, they prevent smell instead of just disguising smells. It is an all natural mineral salt deodorant. They never test on animals and believe in giving back to the community. To find out more you can go to their website here.

Information in this post was taken from The Crystal website and sent to me from One2One Network. I was not paid to share this information.

Rite Aid Scenarios

If you are new to shopping at Rite Aid, October is a great month to start. It will take some money out of pocket, but you'll get it back in Single Check Rebates (SCR) and then have money to use from there on future purchases.
I try to use as little of my own money as I can (OOP out of pocket). The $5 off $25 coupons really help with this. You can find one here to print from home.
Here are some of my thoughts for the week:
Idea #1
Pampers $19.99
small filler (ruler or glue on clearance for $0.24?)
Use $4 off $20 and $1 off Pampers from P&G insert to make total $15 and get $4 +up.
So grand total would be $11 for a box of pampers. Not the greatest deal in the world, but it is pretty nice and beats Walmart.
This deal would also work with Huggies and would be cheaper because of the $2 Video Values and some higher value Huggies coupons. Hopefully your loves' bums will work with huggies, unlike mine...
Idea #2
With all the freebates, I like to try and mix SCR and cheap after coupon deals to keep my OOP low.
You could buy:
4 Nivea Men's Bodywash $15.96
Bee MD Cough Drops $2.49
Cold Buster $6.99
Total: $25.44
Use $5 off $25
4 - $3 off Nivea from 10/17 insert
Pay $8.44
Get $5+up for Nivea, $2.49 SCR for Bee MD, and $6.99 for Cold Buster, and $1 Rebate found on Bee MD website. That's $15.48 back, making this a money maker!!!!
If you can't find 4 men's washes, you could get 2 women's and use $3/2 from 10/17 insert. You'll pay a little more OOP, but still will be a money maker in the end.
***Now if the Nyquil Sinex is also included in the 2/$8 deal, these would be a great choice for scenarios too. They are not pictured or included in the wording, but may ring up as on sale. Plus, with the sale last week, who knows if there will even be any in stock.I will let you know what I find tomorrow.
Idea #3
4 Sinex 2/$8 ($16)
Therma care $2.99
Children's Oscillococcinum $4.99
Beyond Bodyheat $2.99
Total $26.98
use $5 off $25
$1 printable for Therma care
$2 printable for Oscillo.
2-$4 off sinex
pay $10.98 oop. Get back $3 +up for Sinex, $2.99 SCR for Therma Care, $4.99 SCR fro Oscill., and $2.99 for Beyond Bodyheat (That's $14.97 back or a $4 money maker.)
But this will only work if the Sinex is included in the sale.************
And of course, these deals may be better if you have some +ups to use to lower your OOP.
To see more deals you can visit Shannon at For the Mommas here.

In my Mailbox

My mailbox has had treasures in it almost everyday, which is better than just bills. I heard about most of these from For the Mommas and Free Stuff Times.

Here we have:

Lip Armor (balm)

Johnsonville Summer Sausages (I was sent 6 packs)

Wisk laundry detergent

Nivea Body Wash and lotion sample


Quaker Life Oatmeal Square & coupons


Self mini magazine with coupons, CD, and magnets

Coupon for free tub of cottonelle wipes

Mountain Dew Wristband (not pictured)

Clarins lip pallette (not pictured, but nice)

Coupon for free panties from Victorias Secret :) no purchase necessary :) :) (not pictured)

Frugal Fun

I know, I know, I know... I have mentioned this before, but kids just love to play with cheap things that are not toys. My son and daughter love to play with the laundry baskets. And today, for a few minutes, the baskets were empty. My son was sooooo sweet. He was giving me kisses through the holes on the basket. He is just so wonderful.

Second Trip to Rite Aid

I could live at Rite Aid some days....

So I went back in and did two transactions.

For the first one I got:

2 Sinex $4.99 each
1 No nonsense panty hose $2.99
Lip Butter $1.99
Pedia Care Gentle Vapors $6.99
Gain Dish Detergent $0.89
2 Halls Cough Drops $0.99
Orbit Gum $0.88
Maybelline Eyeshadow $3.78 after 40% off

Total: around $29 or so plus tax (I'm being lazy)

Then I used:
$5 off $25
2 - $4 off Sinex
$1 off No nonsense Video Value
$1 off Gain
$1 off Halls
$0.50 off Halls Video Values
$0.50 off Orbit Gum
$2 off Maybelline printable
$2 off Maybelline Video Value
(That's $21 in coupons)
and some +ups from last week

I will get back $6.99 for Gentle Vapors and $1.99 for Lip Butter. And I got back $1 for no nonsense, and 2-$1.50 +ups for Sinex. So even without the +ups that I used, this would still all be free. :)

The second transaction was more of an experiment than anything else. I mentioned the new $1 off $1 or more. But the fine print said you had to buy $25 or more... So I wanted to try it out.

I bought 3 snickers (only 2 pictured because I had to give one out as prizes to students...)
$2 each - $6 total
I used $1 off $1 from Video Values, and $1.50/3 from paper and some of the plus ups from earlier transaction. I paid $0.50 plus tax for candy and got $1 +up back. So here is proof that the $1 off $1 will work!!!!!

New Rite Aid Coupon

I know I've said this before, but I love Rite Aid. I had a few minutes yesterday and was "watching" the videos (Video Values) as I graded papers. And I noticed that there is a new $1 off $1 or more. The fine print says that you have to spend $25 or more to get it, but that doesn't make any sense with the big print on top. I really think that someone was working too fast and took the $5 off $25 coupon template and changed it over. Even if you already watched the long commercials for the $5 off $25, you should be able to watch again and get 2 of the $1 off of $1. And I was curious to see if it would work with the fine print. So I took it to Rite Aid last night to try out a small purchase. The total was $6 (well below $25) before tax and coupons. And the coupon went through just fine.

My guess is that the $5 off $25 is going to be replaced with a lower value coupon like this one. But I am just going to be happy that they are offering us any savings at all. With out Rite Aid my budget wouldn't work. And we wouldn't have any Halloween candy to pass out to the little ones soon.

In my Garden

Well, with the frost here in upstate New York, the garden season is quickly coming to an end. My daughter had some fun pulling up some carrots that I have been freezing for stews and soups. I cannot believe how good our garden has been to us. I thank the Lord each day as I look at that beautiful site in my front yard. These are only some of the carrots we have. You can see that some look quite normal, and others.... well, not so much. And the taste of a fresh carrot... out of this world!!!

My freezer is so full of produce to get us through the winter. It is exciting.


With two little ones, a trip to the store can be frightening. I am serious. One might start screaming, the other might poop and stink the place up... And these are the ones that you expect. To help any trip to the store go smoother you have to prepared. And to me, part of preparation is organization. Not only will organizing your coupons make the shopping trip go smoother, but it will make the planning of the trip take less time and give you more savings.

Organization can take many forms. And I truly believe that there is no right answer except that it has to be a method that is easy to manage and works for you. To give you some ideas, I am going to share with you some of the methods I have tried.

In the beginning....

I have always clipped coupons. At first, I just got one insert, had no clue Internet coupons existed, and just did it because I thought I was supposed to. I had the regular coupon holder that was divided into sections according to the order I traveled through the store and by aisle to make it easier for me to find.

Then I began "super couponing"...

I call it this because I have no idea how else to explain it to people when they ask. I started to aquire several copies of inserts, I started printing internet coupons, and the little bity holder wasn't keeping up. I needed something more.

I started by trying the binder method. I thought that this would be "my method". So my binder had dividers that had pockets. I used these for internet printables, the Rite Aid Video Values, coupon booklets I got in the mail, etc. And then I had the clear card holders that I would place multiple copies of coupons that I thought I might use. I organized these by layout of the store to make it easy for me to find.

I have since strayed from carrying the binder into stores. I still have it at home with printables in the dividers, but I don't bring it in the store with me. My son sits in the front and it just became too hard to try to use without him trying to climb out of the cart. I do know that many people love this method and it may work for you.

And now....

I needed something smaller and ready to go. So I went to the envelope method. These are pictured above. Since I have been doing the couponing thing for a while now, I really know where I will be using each coupon. So when I find one I am going to clip, I put it in the envelope for the store I will be using it. If I'm not sure I'll use it or where, I have a general all-purpose envelope that I put these in. So then, when I am ready to go to the store, I get all the coupons I am going to use in the front of the envelope (sometimes with a paper clip) and the rest are in the back in case I run into a deal that I didn't know about or a deal I had worked out doesn't work because a store has run out of the product. I like to keep these envelopes from getting too fat. Once they get too full, it isn't easy to find the coupon. And with the babes in the cart, I have to be organized or shopping becomes crazy!

Now, I don't always know which coupons might be needed to make a deal, so I keep the inserts that I have cut and put them into a case like this one below that has lots of different file sections. I put them in this "bin" by date so that when I check other blogs and they mention the SS 10/10, I can find it quickly.

So, I have quite a mixed up version of other's organizing methods, but it is what works for me. Hopefully, you have or will find a method that works for you because you can't save any money if you can't find the coupon.
Happy Savings Everyone.

Wegmans Stop

I have not set foot in a Wal mart in almost 2 weeks. It is hard to take two small children from store to store. So I am just doing what works best. And I think it is going well.

You can see here that I had to stock up on pasta. I did pay a couple pennies more here than the $0.61 for the Wal mart brand, but well worth it not to have to make another stop. I also picked up the Turkey Hill Iced Tea, a couple gallons of milk, eggs, bread, salad, and Ice Cream (of course) just to name a few items. I had a basket filled with yummy stuff. I saved almost $35 at Wegmans and spent around $80 which is fine by me. I used to spend over $140 before "super couponing" and am quite pleased to see that we are eating better and for less money. :)

To see all the prices and coupons go back to previous Wegmans post.

Pepperidge Farm's supporting Susan G. Komen

I'm sure that most of you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I am always so surprised when I find out just how many families have been affected by breast cancer. I just recently found out that our beloved babysitter is a 2 time breast cancer survivor. She is a strong and beautiful woman and we are so glad to have her in our life.

There are many companies working this month to try to make a difference, but I am blogging right now to tell you about a delicious opportunity. This month I am working with the One2One network and Pepperidge Farm to share with you a donation incentive program. When someone posts a personal Milano Moment on Milano's Facebook Page in October, Pepperidge Farm will donate $.50 per Moment up to $50,000.

Then when you are done, click on coupon. There is a $0.55 printable there that would be great to use at Wegmans right now. They have the Milano cookies on sale for $1.99. The coupon will double to make the cookies only $0.89. That will make for even more sweet moments.

So all you have to do is head to Facebook and share your "sweet moment" and two great things will happen. Pepperidge Farm will make another donation and you can get a great coupon for helping out.

First Trip to Rite Aid this week...

First of all, sorry about the mess. My little love was covering the table with her goodies while chewing on some cucumbers and dip...

Now, on to the good stuff.
I love Rite Aid. And I think that Rite Aid might love us back when I look at the ads and coupon match-ups.

I did two transactions and I am working on a third that I will try tomorrow.

Here is what I got:

Transaction #1

3 - 12 packs of Coke $9.99
1 No nonsense socks $2.99
2 Sinex (Nyquil) $4.99 each ($9.98)
3 bags of halloween candy $6

Total $27.96

I used the following coupons:

$5 off $25
$1 no nonsense VV
2 - $4 sinex coupons
$1/3 candy
$1 off kit kat VV

(That's $16 in coupons.)
I paid the rest in +ups and paid the tax on a gift card. Yes, I still had some left on a card:) yipppee.
Then I got back 2 $1.50 for Sinex, $1 for Coke, $1 for no nonsense, $1 for candy

Transaction #2

2 Bags Dove Candy 2/$6
6 King sized candy Bars $6
Cold-Eeez $4.99
Pedia Care Multi-Symptom $4.99
2 bags if Halls $2
2 Gain dish detergents $0.89 each ($1.78)

Total $25.76

I used the following coupons:
$5 off $25
$1 off Dove
$1/2 Dove VV
3 BOGO candy coupons ($3)
$1/2 Halls
$0.50 Hall VV
2 - $1 off Gain
(That's $13.50 in coupons. I used the previous +ups from the first transaction. Then I used the last little bit on my gift card. I ended up handing over $4 in cash in the end.

I got back $3 in +ups and will then get back $9.98 in SCR for cold medicines.

This could have been a better deal if I didn't want the Coke. I use it when I get migraines, which unfortunatley has been a lot lately. But it is great when you can't take the migraine meds.

Another idea I had was this:

Gentle Vapor $7 (The night light deal)
No nonsense $2.99
Sinex $4.99
2 Halls $2
4 King Size Candy Bars $4

Total just under $21

Then use $4 off $20, $1 no nonsense $1, $4 Sinex, $1/2 Halls, $0.50 Halls, 2-Bogo candy coupons. $13.50 in coupons, then get back the $7 for Vapor, $1 +up for no nonsense, $1.50 Sinex, $1 +up for candy. That would make this one a money maker. :)

Frugal Fun

I know I haven't posted in a while. My entire family came down with a terrible stomach bug. I luckily didn't get it, but have been quite busy cleaning up after the other 3. Plus it seems that as soon as I sit down I fall asleep.... I used to be able to stay awake all night. Seems I am getting old.

Anyways, here is my babe having some fun with plastic bags. They didn't cost me a cent. I can still recycle them and she had a ball. Don't worry; no plastic bags were placed on anyone's head. I can just hear all the mother's out there. But she was safe and loved being silly. It is amazing how the cheapest and easiest things to find will make kids happier than expensive toys.

Have you been having fun? I'd love to hear about it!!!

Wegmans... turning into my hot deal spot

The past couple of visits have been making me smile at Wegmans. After wandering around, I am going to make another quick stop to get a couple of cheapies.

This week I spent $80 total. The total was higher because I had to get a lot of meat. Generally I try to get chicken one week and ground beef the next. I buy them in bulk because it is cheaper that way and then freeze part for the next week. Well, we ended up having extra last week and I didn't buy any and instead grabbed a roast for the crock pot, which is a working woman's life saver. But I didn't really think that through and was out of both this week. ahhhh.

So anyways, here are some of the great finds at Wegmans:

2 Cinnamon Toast Crunch 2/$5
used 2- $.65 printable coupons *doubled* $1.20 each (I think it was from, but had a $0.55 coupon too)

6 more cans of tomato soup 2/$1
I was able to print 2 more $1.50 off 3 to get these for free :)

2 Tic Tacs $1.29
used $0.75 printable *double* to make it free

Flour 5 lbs $0.99 each
there is a limit of 2... I just pick up a couple every time I go and stock up while they are on sale and don't have to buy during the rest of the year when it is full price. Last year Wegmans put the sugar on sale too. I am waiting and watching for this. I'll let you know if they do.

Prego $1.98
used $1/3 I only mention this one because there are so few Prego coupons out there!!!!

Hidden Valley $2.89
used $2/1 printable to make it $0.89
and you may notice this is one penny more than Wal*mart... well worth it to me to not have to go in there

I also grabbed another Pyrex with a coupon and the sale continuing. I am trying to stock up because I basically had none (with lids) and they are just so useful.

Of course I got other things, but they aren't really on sale....

Here are some of the things I will be picking up next time I go:

Turkey Hill Iced Tea $1.49 (I love this ... it is a splurge)
use $1/2 to make $0.98 each

Friendship Cottage Cheese
use printable from there website. They have 2 depending on how you answer question $0.55 or $0.75. My store will double to make this under a buck!!!

Nestle Chocolate Chips $1.69
use $0.55 from Sept All You *doubled* to make it $0.59 each (wish I had more of these)

Sunday Rite Aid Stop

Although there isn't much for free this week, I was a little excited about the items I went to Rite Aid for. So I was sure to get there on Sunday. My daughter had a terrible stomach bug and I spent most of the day taking care of her. So by the time I got there I felt very unorganized, but it ended up turning out ok.

I did 2 transactions.

Here is the first one:

4 - Crest toothpastes 4.0oz $2.69 each
2 Nivea Lipglosses $2.99 each
1 Sunday paper $1.50
1 Trident Gum (grabbed the 14 piece pack on accident instead of 18) $0.99

The total after tax was just over $20. So then I used:

$4 off $20
4- $1 off Crest from P&G
$2 off 2 Nivea Lip
and I couldn't use the Trident gum coupon because I grabbed the wrong size :(
I paid the remaining ten or so with gift cards and +ups.

Then I got back 2-$1.99 +ups for the Nivea and 4 - $2.69 +ups for the Crest or $14.74.

So then we went on to the second transaction. I bought:

5 boxes of cereal 5 for $10
1 Schick Hydro Razor $5.99 (last one on shelf)
1 package of Huggies Pure and Natural (size 2 - so not for my babe) $7.99
1 clearance pooh bear toothbrush $1.74

Total $25.72 plus tax

I used $5 off $25
2 - $1.50 off kids kellogs printable
1 - $1 off kellogs VV
$4 off Schick
$2 off Schick VV
$3 off huggies
$1 off huggies VV
used 2 $2.69 +ups and then paid the rest. ($1.32 plus tax)

I got back $2 +up from cereal.

I am thinking about making another trip to get some Dove Chocolates. I really love them and try to get when they are cheap and then hide for a rainy day....

Rite Aid Scenarios

Well, I keep playing with the prices of the items my family needs or wants this week from Rite Aid and I still haven't gotten it to come out free. Shannon at For the Mommas has posted her free scenario if you are interested.

Here are some of the ideas I've come up with:

3 packages of Huggies Pure and Natural $7.99 each
small filler to get total to $25

use $5 off $25
3 - $3 off Huggies
$2 VV on Huggies from Oct
$1 VV on Huggies from Sept
$?? depending on filler

total will be around $8 or so

This is the one I will probably do:

1 Huggies Pure and Natural $7.99
5/$10 Kelloggs Cereals
1 Schick Hydro Razor $5.99
2 PopSecret Single Packs on Clearance $.80??? Each

Total: About $25.60

I'll use:

$5 off $25
$3 off huggies
$2 off huggies VV
2- $1.50 off 2 kellogs kid cereals printable$1/2 Kellogs VV
$4 off Schick from 10/3 insert
$2 off Schick VV October
$1/2 Popsecret from old insert

I'll pay $4.60 and get back $2 +up from cereal making final cost $2.60.... not bad.

Here is another idea:

Nivea Lip $2.99
Crest Outlast toothpaste $2.69
Schick Razor $5.99
6 bags of Halloween Candy 2/$5 ($15)

$5 off $25
$1 off Nivea from 10/3 insert
$1 off Crest from 9/26 P&G
$4 off razor from 10/3
$2 off razor from vv
$1/3 snickers from 9/26
$1/3 resses, kit kat smartsource printable
$1 off reese, kit kat VV oct.

Total $26.67 - 16 = 10.67 You'll get back $3 +up for candy, $2.69 for toothpaste, $1.99 for Nivea making the cost around $3...

I have heard that some of the free after plus up deals are printing multiple +ups, so you could try that way to get everything for free.... For me, I focused on getting things we need like cereal or the up coming baby shower I'm going to and planned deals that way.

Rite Aid Trip

Finally made it to Rite Aid and previously planned scenario worked out pretty well.

I got:
nexxus shampoo $9.99 (out of the $5.99)
nexxus conditioner $2.99 (50% off)
EOS $2.99
Orbit Gum $0.88
Aveeno shampoo $5.99
Hershey Bliss 2/$6

I used
$5 off $25
$3 nexxus from sample
$6/2 nexxus VV
$.50 off Orbit VV
$1 off Aveeno printable
$4 off Aveeno VV
2-$1 Bliss VV
$1/2 Bliss from insert

$28.84 plus tax -$22.50 IN COUPONS = $6.34. Then I got back $3 in +ups and will get back $2 for EOS in SCR. So it wasn't all technically free, but with old +ups and gift card nothing came out of my pocket!

I bought the Pampers in a previous transaction mentioned earlier.
