Now is the time...

that Target does their twice a year big clearances, they usually do them in July/August and also in January. When you are at Target over the next month or so, you may want to browse the entire store as they start marking things down up to 75%. They are currently clearancing out their patio furniture to make room for back to school items.

They are also in the process of clearancing out lots of their kids items including car seats, strollers and other baby gear. I saw lots of summer kids clothes at 50-75% off, what a great time to shop ahead and purchase your kiddos wardrobes for next summer! I bought a couple of short sleeve polo shirts for $1.68 and some PJs for less than $2.

I scored a kids folding table with 4 folding chairs for only $12! I was looking at nice wooden tables online and fell in love with a $200 one, but decided to skip it when I got this one for twelve bucks. It is just going to end up colored on any ways!

Clearance finds were everywhere in the store including bedding, beach towels, frames and tons of other items.

If you see any great deals at Target, share your finds!

This week's Whole Foods one day sale is on Sigg Water Bottles. Sigg Water Bottles are high quality reusable bottles that are pretty pricey and rarely go on sale. In my quest to be more earth friendly and cost effective, I bought the entire family metal reusable water bottles and we have LOVED them. We have Klean Kanteens and Siggs and really like both of them...but back to the deal.

Today, Wednesday July 7th, participating Whole Foods locations are offering 50% off their in-stock Sigg water bottles, while supplies last. They also have 9 oz. Kiss My Face moisture soaps 3 for $10!

My kiddos both need new water bottles so I know where I'll be going today!

First, log in or create a Shop at Home account (this is a cashback website that is completely legitimate and tracks you online spending and gives you a percentage back). If you are new to Shop at Home you will get an automatic $5 credit to your account.

Once you are logged into Shop at Home, search "Entertainment Book" in the search bar. You will see they offer 25% cash back on Entertainment Book purchases, which on this purchase is equal to $2.

Click through the links until you get to the Entertainment Book website and purchase your book.

You will spend $9.98 to get the book. If you are new to Shop at Home, you will get a $5 account credit plus the 25% back = $2, so a total of $7 credited to your account. After credits you will only spend $2.98 shipped!! Even if you already have a Shop at Home account, you will still only be paying $7.98 for this great coupon book shipped to you.

The coupons in this book are good through November, so you still have plenty of time to use them. At such a low cost for this book, you only need to use 1 coupon to more than pay for it!

I LOVE this book and actually have 3 copies for myself and have purchased several as gifts for people. If you are planning on traveling at all before November, you may want to look at what books may be available for your destination to help you save while traveling!

Walgreens Deals 7/4 - 7/10

I'm a little behind with the holiday weekend and am not sure I will get around to posting the Walgreens deals for the week, so I figured I'd link to a great list at Hip2Save. Just remember that some coupons are regional so we may not have gotten them or they may be for a different amount.

Have fun shopping!

A couple of Safeway deals...

I ran to Safeway yesterday because we needed a few things for our fourth of July BBQ.

I purchased 4 Hillshire Farms turkey kielbasa sausages for $1.49 each after in-ad coupon which made them $1.99 each and then the $1/2 from the 6/6 RP and the register kicked out a $1 catalina coupon good on my next purchase from Hillshire Farms.

I also purchased 4 Ben & Jerry's ice cream pints and received a $1.50/4 coupon for my next purchase on Ben & Jerry's. If you like this ice cream, now is the time to buy as they are only $1.99 each when you buy 4, with the $4 instant savings. If you get the coupon and do the transaction again, you would only spend $1.62 each! That is a great price for this super yummy ice cream.

The best deal I found was that Tostitos tortillas chips were on sale for $1.69 each, any many of them had $2/1 peelies on them, making them FREE after the coupon! Keep your eyes open for these peelies on the bags, this sale is only good through Tuesday.

Do you have any other finds at Safeway this week?
