MOM Deals to Put a Smile on Your Face

Have I got some deals for you?! Here are a great ways to save money right now and put a smile on your face:

Mail-in rebates
There are some great rebates to take advantage of. Kraft and SuperValu are offering $25 in free food. Kelloggs is offering $10 back after the purchase of select items. (Click on the bottom right corner of the link for details.) Use coupons to get even more savings from these purchases. Just don’t forget to mail in the rebate form. It’s no deal if you don’t get the money back. YOu can see what I did with the Kraft rebate here.

Coupons
Are you ready to take the plungeinto couponing? I spent Friday morning working on an article about it. The project reminded me once again what a great hobby it is. I say “hobby” because I don’t believe it’s essential. There are other ways that I could lower our grocery bills besides coupon clipping. But, it’s one that I enjoy and one that saves us money. So, it’s a keeper.

  • Browse the printables at coupons.com. There are some good Huggies coupons as well as coupons for Kashi, Scott, Alpine Lace, and other brands.
  • Buy the Sunday paper. Check the Taylortown Preview to see if there are coupons worth your while. I see $2 off A-1, $1 off Dove Chocolates, and lots of shaving coupons.

Dive into CVS
Check out my primer to get you started in getting free toiletries and groceries from CVS. Some of the sale items vary by region so make sure you check your ad.

Summer Clearance Sales
If they haven’t already, many stores are marking down their summer stuff to make room for Fall and Back to School. Keep your eyes peeled for bargains. Guess-timate your kids’ sizes for next summer and load up on crocs, flip-flops, swimsuits, and summer clothing. Also turn your mind toward Christmas and see if there are summer items that you could give as gifts. Beach pails would make great “gift bags.”

Back to School Deals Continue
CVS and other stores continue to host great sales on Back to School supplies. Amazon has a great promotion on snacks and groceries. If you don’t mind purchasing a lot at one time, you can snag some great deals on a variety of different foods, including lots of organic and all-natural products. Amazon also features great prices on almost anything you need to head back to the books. Check out their Back to School Savings Sale.

    Beach pails might make great Christmas "gift bags" in California, but they'd be pretty disappointing for a kid in Minnesota. :) They, do, however, make nice "Easter baskets."

    Beach pails are also good for flu season to have sitting by the bed.

  3. There's a new service called Milo.com which is perfect for back to school shopping, especially last-minute b2s shopping!! http://milo.com

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
