Went to two different Targets today to take advantage of the 90% off Easter clearance. Spent about $25 that I put on a Target gift card I received for my birthday (so no money out of pocket) and filled my car's trunk with stuff. Some of the items I got included really cute Goodnight Moon stuffed bunnies and rattles, bubble guns (they blow a thousand bubbles in one minute, claims the box) for 29 cents, lots of Hello Kitty and Barbie trickets for birthday gifts (a few of these items together make a nice gift and at 30 cents each, that's a birthday gift for under a dollar!), and some fun bags like Batman and Jake and Neverland Pirates that we can use for Halloween! I am set for a while for birthdays, Christmas stockings, stuff to fill a birthday pinata, etc. Did you find anything good at Target?
If you bought Yoplait's Yo-Plus products over the last few years, you may be entitled to a payment! A class action lawsuit has recently settled against General Mills, and customers who bought the products between July 2007 and July 2012 may be eligible to receive some money back. Apparently the company was accused of falsely advertising the digestive health benefits of its products.
Just bought these boots for about $9 on Kmart's website (after shipping). They have a decent amount of shoes on clearance here plus I used a few dollars in Shop Your Way points. I bought a similar pair at Famous Footwear the other day for about $40, so if these fit well, I'll return those.
I just signed into my Smiley 360 account and received a new mission to try Arm & Hammer Sensitive Toothpaste. If you haven't tried Smiley 360, it's a fun and easy program that frequently gives me free things to try out.
I have 2 kids in diapers, but I hate paying for something that's going to be pooped on and tossed - sometimes in a matter of minutes. I'm not a cloth-diapering kind of mom, so I'm being creative in order to get diapers for free. If you have kids in diapers, grandkids in diapers, friends with kids in diapers, or are pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant, let's build our diaper stockpile together! The stores I typically get diapers at are CVS, Target, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Shoprite. So let's challenge each other to see how long we can go without paying for diapers. There are tons of money saving blogs, but I want to dedicate this one to diapers. Along the way, we'll get tons of other free and cheap stuff, but our main goal will be to stop wasting our hard earned cash on diapers.
