Coupon Deals & More

This is my daughter "May May's" deals this week!
Look at all of this stuff. She purchased all of this at 2 stores.
She said that she paid $1.91 out of pocket with $7 dollars Up Rewards from last week at Rite Aid and she has $17 dollars Up Rewards to use next week. She spent $2.25 out of pocket at CVS along with $11 dollars in Extra Care Bucks with $6 dollars to carry over to next week.
Total out of pocket for all of these items were $4.00!!!
She did really good! Thanks for sharing "May May"!
This is my other daughter, "Big Sis's" deals this week.
She went to one store. Rite Aid.
She paid a total of $12.31 out of pocket but received $11.00 in Up Rewards for next week.
These girls of mine just amaze me. Every time they get deals like this they always call me and tell me all about it.
Thanks for sharing "Big Sis"!
I can't wait to see what you both do next week!
This is my only deal this week!
I have had a very busy week and just didn't have it together but could not pass this deal up.
This package of Charmin Tissue was on sale for $5.99 which is a great deal in itself. But then you go to and load a $3.00 coupon on your card and when you go to the register it automatically comes off.
Here is my receipt. I was pretty proud of this deal.
I did do a little more saving money this week that I was proud of. I sat on the phone for a couple of hours asking how I could cut some of my services like home phone, Dish Satellite, & cell phones.
Just by asking I have saved over $70.00 a month!!! I called our home phone service and told them that we don't even use our phone and asked if they could take some of the services off like caller id and call waiting, etc. I asked her if I even had to have it for the internet and she said yes. We also need it for invoices that are faxed to us. Then she told me about a service that a friend had shared with me a while ago and I had forgot all about it. It is called Green Streak. The deal is that you can take all of the incoming calls you want free. You also can dial 800 numbers free. But you cannot call out unless you want to pay 10 cents a minute. Well with everything she took off it will save me $32.95 a month. Then I called Dish Satellite and she asked me if we wanted to change our programing and I told her we loved what we had but was trying to see where we could cut. She suggested seeing if we qualified for HD for life. That saved me $10.00 a month. Then I called about our cell phones. We have not been on a family plan so we got unlimited minutes and by putting us together on a plan it saved us over 39.00!! That total is over 70.00 a month for a couple of hours on the phone. Next week I am going to start pricing insurance. I think we did pretty good, don't you?
The Virtuous Woman

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Proverbs 31:10-31

This is amazing! I plan on taking notes and trying these things myself. No time like the present!!

Hey, that is not true about having to have a phone service to have internet. You can get something called a dry line, look it up. It is an open phone line that can only be used for internet, nothing else. It is only like $10 a month! If you use a cell phone for everything else, it would be worth it. Do some research, we are wanting to do this ourselves, I just haven't yet because we *don't* have cellphones!! So we need something. We are thinking of getting that thing called a "something"-jack...can't remember the name right off the top of my head, they are sold at Walmart. It gives you the option to have a dry line.

Jenn said...

oops, not a dry line, a dry LOOP!
