Finally a trip worth blogging about!

I've been in a bit of a slump coupon wise lately...these hot summer days are taking away so much energy. AND we've been spending a lot of time the pool, at the mall. But here is my trip to Dominick's this morning that I feel like bragging about.

These items are all part of the "Buy 4 Save $4 Instantly" promotion they have going on through 7/21. Plus, you get a FREE box of Nature Valley Granola bars when you purchase 4 participating items. To be able to duplicate this deal, you'll have to be sure to load e-coupons on to your Dominick's card at and before you head to the store! These e-coupons will come off automatically when the cashier scans your card. So, here's what I got:

(1) Betty Crocker Fruit Gushers, $2.19
(1) Betty Crocker Fruit Rollups, $1.19
Used $0.50/1 from, $0.50/1 from & $0.50/2 paper coupon here or here or here

(1) Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Bars, $1.99
Used $0.75/2 from

(1) Nature Valley Nut Clusters, $1.99
Used $1/1 from, $1/1 from & $1/1 paper coupon here or here or here

*Free item, Nature Valley Granola Bars
Somehow, I was able to use $0.50/1 from & $0.50/1 from on my FREE item. Very unusual!

My grand total after allllll the coupons was $0.68!!! Total saving 96%!

Thanks to Mashup Mom for a bit of help figuring this deal out!

Target Trip 7/8

It's barely 10 a.m. and I've already made a trip to Target. We were down to two diapers, so an early morning trip was an absolute must today!! Walked away with a couple of good deals:

(1) Kellogg's Raisin Bran Extra, on sale $2.66
(1) Kellogg's Fiber Plus Cereal, on sale $2.66
Used Target coupon FREE Kellogg's Fiber Plus Antioxidants with purchase of Kellogg's cereal
& $1/2 Kellogg's Cereal here
= This SHOULD HAVE equaled $1.66 for both, but for some unknown reason, the Target coupon took $4.29 off instead of $2.66, making it $0.03 for BOTH!

(2) Huggies Big Pack Diapers, size 4 (126 diapers each), $29.99
Receive a $10 Target gift card when you buy 2
Used $3/1 here or here
= $43.98 after coupons and gift card for both, or $0.17 per diaper

(1) Satin Care Trial Size Shavel Gel, $0.99
Used $0.55/1 from 7/4 P&G insert = $0.44

(2) Eggo Waffles, on sale $1.75
Used $1/2 Target coupon here & $1/2 from 6/20 RP insert = $1.50 for both

(2) Starbucks Ice Cream $2.54
Used 2 $1/1 here = $1.54

If you need chicken this week, the Gold'n Plump chicken breasts are on sale for $3.49. Print $1/1 here to get it for $2.49. Not too bad for chicken, but not extremely great either.

Pace: Play to win FREE Salsa

Visit to play Hand-Pick & Win for a chance to win a coupon for a free jar of salsa (valued up to $4.00)! No purchase is necessary and you can play once per day through 7/31! The website states your chances are 1 in 20, but I've played 7 or 8 times and already won twice. Good luck!!
