Update on "life in general"

So I've been MIA this week...

I was hired for a temp job that is full time and lasts about 3 weeks, so I haven't been home to blog much at all!  When I get home my time is consumed with spending time with family and getting everyone to bed on time.

Of course this is great news for my budget challenge, since I haven't had much time to shop either!

There are some GREAT catalina deals at Jewel right now!  There are three going on at once and another starting next week!  WOW!  I think I will be spending quite a bit of my weekend at the store, stocking up for next to nothing!  And hopefully I will be able to find an awesome deal so I can stock up the food pantry as well!

More a different day! 

Until then - Happy couponing!

Today's Printables list

It seems that I've been posting a lot of printables links lately - so I'm going to start posting 1 post a day of printables.

Free samples, etc

Redbox Codes

Free Redbox movies (as lost as you return them on time!)

Rebates galore!

I was filing my January receipts (finally) and got together all the receipts and forms for my rebates... WOW!  I have a LOT!  I have them all ready to go in the mail today.

$30 = SC Johnson $5 X 6
$20.85 = Snapple Try Me Free $6.95 X 3
$16.63 = Schick Quattro X 2 ($8.99 & $7.64)

That's $67.43 that's coming back to me!!

I also found receipts for two more rebates - but now I can't find them!  GRRR...  so when I find them again I will send those in too!

What do you know about using a Buy Price List?

How do you know if the sale minus coupon price is the best price around?  A lot of bargain shoppers create a "Buy Price List" (mine is in my head - not on paper).

In a nutshell - this is a list of rock bottom prices you will pay for any given product.  When you find a sale that makes a product that price - then you know to stock up!

A couple prices for items on my "Buy Price List" are:

Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast $1.50/lb
Ground Beef (at least 80/20) $1/lb
Cereal $0.25/box
Milk $2/gallon
Cheese $1.25/lb
Bananas $0.30/lb
Apples $1/lb
Bread/Buns $0.25 a pkg

Toilet Paper $0.20/roll

Most toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deoderant, etc) $0.25 ea
Diapers (size 4-6) $0.10 per diaper
Baby Wipes $0.005 per wipe

Those are just a few things off the top of my head.  Because of the way I coupon (ya know - EXTREME) I try to get most of my needed items for free and stock up big time. The things above are rarely free.  When things are free or less than my "Buy" price - I will buy as many as I think I can use before the expiration date (or until I run out of coupons).

There's a great video talking about this here.

So what is on your "Buy Price" list?  Leave a comment below!

Cub Foods Corporate Coupon Policy

I emailed Customer Service at Cub Foods and asked for a copy of their coupon policy. 

This is the note I received in reply:

Cub Customer Inquiries (

Sent: Tue 2/16/10 12:17 PM

Cub Foods corporate stores accepts coupons 60 days past the expiration
date at this time.  Cub Foods adheres to the manufacturer guidelines on
the coupon in all other terms; meaning there is not doubling-up the same
coupon on one item if the requirement is to buy two.  We do not double
any coupons and we do not accept other retailers coupons.
I hope that helps; thanks for visiting
I was unaware they accepted expired coupons!  I wrote back asking a few specific 
questions and will post when I receive a reply.
