Some of my deals at the 99 Cent Only store!

So I ventured over to the 99 Cent Only store today. I've been known to drive a little ways to get to the one that Julia from The Frugal Find shops at but this time I decided to stick with my local Fairfield, CA one.

Here are a few of my highlights:

Pillsbury Valentine's Day Ready to Bake cookies, pack of 24 (I got 3 and have already baked one package tonight!)

Eggo Bakeshop Frozen Pastries (I got 2)

Lunchables Submarine Sandwiches (While I didn't find these to be a great deal for lunch at home since they simply a roll, some lunch meat, and cheese, I figured they would be a great thing to throw in a bag and give to my daughter when we are out somewhere instead of buying her fast food; I got 3)

Dannon Nutriday Yogurt, 4 pack (I got 2)

Fat Free Cottage Cheese, 4 pack

Earthbound Farms Organic Romaine Lettuce

Zacky Farms Chicken Bologna

Bunch of Fresh Asparagus

BIG bag of baby carrots

Small bottle of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil, duh!)

FREE deodorant at Safeway!

It seems like there is a LOT of deodorant deals lately! I think they are prepping us for the upcoming spring and summer seasons! Thanks to The Frugal Find for this deal!

Safeway has Right Guard on sale for 10/$10 or $1 ea this week!
Use the $2/2 coupon HERE AND HERE! Remember, you can print 2 per computer per site, meaning you can get 4 for free! Even if you aren't in need of deodorant, there are people who are. Consider getting them (for free!) and donating to a local homeless shelter!

Oh, and if your Safeway is out, I did see Right Guard on sale at CVS for $1.25, so $.25 each...still a GREAT deal!

My CVS deals!

Thanks to ChaChing on a Shoestring for the deals! Check out her whole list HERE!

I need to go back this week to finish off my deals but for now this is what I got:
1/2 gallon of milk (they were OUT of gallons. Ugh!)
2 Glade Sense and Spray starter kits
2 Glade Lasting Impression kits

Milk - $1.99
Use $.55/1 coupon HERE (I suggest bookmarking this coupon because it's a PDF and you can use it as much as you want!!)

Sense and Spray and Lasting Impressions - $6 ea AND spend $12 and get $4 ECBs
Use (2) $3/1 Sense and Spray coupons from the 1/24 SS
Use (2) $3/1 Lasting Impressions coupons from the 1/24 SS

OOP = $13.44 + $8 ECBS = $5.44!!

I'm kicking myself because I had a $5/20 coupon that expired YESTERDAY that I didn't realize I had!!

They also have the Sense and Spray refills for 2/$6, however my store was out and I plan on trying another store in the next couple of days. For that deal:

Buy 4 refills
Use (2) $2/2 coupons from the 1/24 SS

OOP = $8 + $4 ECBs = $4!! You could also use the $8 ECBs you just got from the above transaction to make these free!

My Target deals!

Wahoo to Target this week! They have some GREAT gift card deals this week. Thanks to The Frugal Find for sharing the deals. Go HERE for Julia's compete list.

As for me, I walked out with:
Gillette Fusion Power razor (unfortunately only one cartridge, but I'll figure out some deal to get some more and post it!)
Venus Spa Breeze razor
Olay Tone Enriching Body Wash
2 boxes of Band Aids
2 Tylenol Cold/Sinus medications
Ludens cough drops
Neosporin medicine

for...$10.16 plus tax!! Here's how:

Transaction #1:
Gilette Fusion and Venus razors - $6.99 ea AND $5 gift card when you buy 2
Use $4/1 Gillette Fusion razor coupon from the 2/7 RP
Use $2/1 Venus razor coupon from the 2/7 RP
AND use BOGO free Olay body wash coupon from the 2/7 RP (there is NO amount limit or type that you have to get! I made sure I got one that said OLAY BODY, that's all!)
OOP = $7.98 + $5 GC

Transaction #2:
Assorted Tylenol cold/sinus medicine - $4.99 ea AND free Luden's cough drops
Use (2) $2/1 coupons from HERE OR the $4/2 from the January Safeway coupon booklet
(I have no idea why I didn't get my second bag of cough drops! I may go back this week to get them. Ugh!)

Band Aid products - starting at $2.59 for a 30ct box AND free Neosporin when you buy 2
Use (3) $1/1 coupons from the January Safeway coupon booklet (yes, you can use a coupon on the Neosporin, even though it's free! It's essentially stacking the coupon on their advertised price!) Oh, and at my Target, the Band aids actually rang up at $2.10, even though they were marked $2.59. Shrug.

OOP = $7.18
Use $5 gift card from prior transaction!
Total = $2.18 plus tax!

My Rite Aid deals!

A got a few GREAT deals at Rite Aid this week! I'm not a big RA shopper but I will make the trip for a few good buys! Thanks to My Frugal Adventures! For her complete list, go HERE.

I got 2 Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccinos, 2 Dove deodorants, 2 Degree deodorants, and the NEW Lysol No Touch Soap Dispenser for a whopping...$2.33 WITH tax!! Here's how:

Starbucks Frappuccinos - 3/$5 or $1.67 ea
Use 2 (or more if you have more printers!) $1/1 coupons found HERE (Once you've filled in the form and your first coupon prints, hit the back button to print a second!)
Final price: $.67 ea!!

Dove Deodorant - 2/$3
Use $1.50/2 from the 1/31 RP
Final price: $.75 ea!!

Degree Deodorant - 2/$3
Use (2) $.75/1 from the 1/31 RP
Final price: $.75 ea!!

Lysol No Touch Hand Soap Dispenser - $12.99
Use $5/1 in ad coupon (they have ads in the store if you didn't get one in your Sunday paper)
Use $1/1 ad perk coupon*
Use $5/$20 ad perk bonus coupon*
Get $1 Single Check Rebate
Final price: $.99!!

*Ad Perk is a program that Rite Aid has through it's website. There are many videos (read: ads!) that you can watch and you get a coupon at the end that you can print. The videos also have a "point" value; most are 1 but some are 2. The bonus is that if you collect 20 "points", you get a bonus $5/$20 coupon. I believe you can only get one a month, but I have signed up using 2 e-mail addresses so that I can get 2 if I need to! Click on the link above and follow the directions on how to sign up. It's a little boring, but really only takes about 15 minutes to get the 20 points (maybe less if you're computer runs faster than mine!).

So my total came to $7.58 with tax, but I had a Single Check Rebate sent to me from my last trip there for $5.25 (which actually work like a CVS Extra Care Buck does if you don't want to deposit the check in your bank), which brought my total amount due to $2.33!! SCORE!
