What a Score!

**Update- Found another table after ebs $4!!!

Wow .. It's been awhile hope all is well! I've been keeping busy unpacking is no fun finally down to about 20 boxes! I went today to Sweetbay and got 9 packs of steak only paid for 3 packs using Albertsons coupon buy 1 get 2 FREE (in flyer)even the cashier said " I need to get me some of their fliers"..lol
I've really been stocking up on meat .  I just got a flyer this week for ribs :)

The other day I went with my mother in law to Cvs saw a patio set on Sale $32.99 but I decided to wait till I got some bills out. Then yesterday my father in law went and he got $6 eb so I decided to go back today to use it hoping they still had it left ,When I got there I didn't see it they had it in the back room and to my surprise the lady scanned it and it was on clearance for $12.99!
Minus $6 eb I paid $6.99!!!
They had 2 sets left someone already prepaid for one, I was so glad I got the other one!  :)

Publix Trip 7/29

I did really good today didn't take a picture...lol but I got $73 worth of food for $44!

I love that Publix takes competitors coupons!!
I used 2 Albertsons coupons today $5 off $50 and an in ad Albertsons coupon for Pork Tenderloin buy 1 get 2 FREE! each one was $11.28 so I got 3 for $11.28!!
(mom makes Pasteles/mofongo with them ...mmmm)

I will go back tomorrow to get another set of Pork Tenderloin also Albertsons has an in store coupon for London Broil buy 1 get 2 FREE which I will also get tomorrow!!!
They also have B1G2 Free Pollock Fillets.

Then to top it off I asked the manager "I know you take competitors coupons and also Walgreens rr's but do you take CVS ebs"  " Why, Yes we do"  he said.  So I also took off another $3 using eb
Hey its a bit tight now son going to college in 3 weeks and I will be closing on a house in 6 weeks I must cut corners to save!!

Oh and My husband had a cow the entire time he hates to shop and with me especially when I use coupons (he likes to be in and out) and then when I called the manager over he's like "DEB"!!  lmao!
Oh well I got to do what I got to do!! He was amazed as he watched the price go down and down..lol

Update of my garden

Thanks to Mike (great guy) whom I met today off of Freecycle.org he posted that he had some flower pots , so hubby and I  jumped at the chance which was perfect timing I needed to repot a lot of plants.  Mike was also generous enough to give me some bamboo for stakes and 2 seedling trays.
I then went to home depot and bought a few bags of dirt and some more seeds.
also I noticed a cucumber today!
Thanks again mike!

Also I remembered I had the $10 off $20 coupon for Kmart.
anyway at check out I handed the cashier my coupon she said hold on a minute she asked the next cashier she then tells me "sorry you can't use that" I asked why she said " they are not a competitor, "they don't sell food" huh yes they do,(also I was told Other Publix were taking it) she said 'NO" . OK no problem My order was $31. as I was leaving I asked who is the manager I was was curious to ask. she pointed him out I went up to him and showed him my coupon and told him the cashier said it was no good I thought you take competitors coupons he said yes we do and she absolutely wrong, he went behind the register at customer service and handed me $10 back and said sorry! Good thing I asked :)
so now my order is $21...lol

Ebates, Big Crumbs, CashBaq, Mr. Rebates... cash back when shopping online

Any time you are going to make a purchase online, check first to see if the store is listed on Ebates, CashBaq, Mr. Rebates, or Big Crumbs. If it is, you can save anywhere from 2-25%. They have lots of stores such as GAP, Circuit City, Ebay, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, … All you have to do is go to their site first and click on the store web site from their page. I’m thinking the way this works is that they have signed up for a ton of affiliate programs and get paid from these companies to bring people to their sites. Then they give you a cut of the money.
A lot of times if I need some type of electronics or computer supplies, I’ll go to Circuit City through Ebates or Big Crumbs, buy online, but have it sent to the store near me for pick up. It works out great.

Right now Ebates is having a deal where you get an automatic $5 in your account when you sign up. Here’s the link Get $5 automatically just for signing up for Ebates

I don't order much online but I will have to keep this in mind!

Thanks to chachingqueen for this post!
