Halloween Clearance

After the holiday's are the best times to stock up on great stuff for next year. Usually the day after Halloween, decorations, costumes, some candy and other Halloween gear are marked in the neighborhood of 30-50% off. Keep your eyes open for some great deals.

In a few more days, you will start to see markdowns going even further. Last year, we snagged a ton of Halloween stuff for 90% off a couple of weeks after Halloween. 90% is as good as it gets but the pickings are slim at that point!

Let us know if you get any great stuff!

Another great money making deal at Walgreens!

Woo hoo - NyQuil Sinex is included in the Vicks register reward deal at Walgreens this week. It may not be marked in your store, but if it rings up at $5 you should be good to go!

Here's what you should do:
Buy 2 NyQuil Sinex 2/$10 = $10
Use 2, $4/1 from the 10/10 PG
Cost = $2, get $5 RR - like making $3 when you buy these after RR!

(Thanks, Wild for Wags!)
