Great deals at Vons this Week

Vons is having a buy 10 items get $5.00 off mix and match sale and I have been racking my brain trying to figure out the best deals and then I figured out a really easy way to find the best deals on the things you need and are on sale. Here it is:

Get your coupons out.

If you have not signed up for you can do so here. It is free and it does not send you any spam.
On the left click on the grocery deals by state.
Use the drop down box and select California (Southern) - Vons/Pavillions Advertised Deals

This will give you a complete list of all the items on sale at Vons for the week. On the left it tells you if there is a coupon for the item and where you can find it (which Sunday paper it was in). On the right it tells you the coupon amount, the sale price and the final cost. It makes it really easy to find the best deals.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this.

Anyone who emails me or comments on this post will learn my BIG secret. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well. We are doing great here. David is still in Tuscon but should be home this Wed. I hope that is true but they seem to change their minds a lot so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Tanner is walking up a storm. He just looks so grown up cruising around the house. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful child. I will try to get some updated photos posted in s few days.

I am still finding great deals everywhere. I will keep you posted on any great deals I find.

What I never knew about coupons!

I am just having a blast getting so many deals and freebies with coupons and I thought I would share a few things that I never knew about coupons.

  • There are 2 types of coupons: Manufacturer's coupons and Store coupons. You can use both types of coupons on the same item for a combined savings. Example - You can use a Walgreen's coupon and a coupon out of the Sunday paper on one item. If you have a tube of toothpaste that cost $2.50 and you have a Walgreen's coupon for $1.50 off and you have a manufacturer's coupon for $1.00 off you get the toothpaste for free.
  • Use multiple like coupons. If the store is having a sale that says buy 5 boxes of cereal for $5.00 you can use 5 coupons and save big. This week Vons was having a sale and they had 5 boxes of cereal on sale for $.99 each when you buy 5. I had five $1.00 off coupons so I got all five boxes of cereal for free. I did not know you could use like coupons in one transaction. I always thought you were limited to one. It is one manufacturer's coupon per item not per transaction.
  • Target and Walmart take coupons. Not only does Target take coupons but they have online printable store coupons to use with your manufactures coupons.
  • Buy Multiple copies of the paper. I have found the best way to take advantage of all the great deals out there is to have multiple copies of my coupons. I get the Bulldog early Sunday edition at Walmart on Saturdays for $1.00 and I usually buy 3 copies and I have one copy delivered to my house when I know there are coupons in the paper. a site called has a list of when the paper will have coupons. You can find it here. This is a great site to start finding deals.
  • You can usually print 2 copies of each coupon you find online. When you find a coupon you like make sure you hit the back button and print it again. Most of the time you can print it twice. if the back button doesn't work just go back into the site and start over. It is worth it.

Well these are a few of the things I didn't know until a few weeks ago. A lot of you probably already know all this but just in case I don't want anyone to miss out.

What a deal

Well today did not go as I had planned it in my head this morning. (I think I dream about coupons and if the stores are really going to let me use them). I could not get the diapers at Walgreen's because Tanner is a little too big for that brand of Diaper but it is a steal for anyone with a baby in Newborn - Size 2 Huggies. Oh Well, then I get to the cash register and the cashier will not let me purchase more then one of each product which is crazy but I didn't make a fuss because that is the closest Walgreen's.

So I called my mom and we headed out to the Walgreen's on Navajo Rd. We went right up and had no problem at all getting all our loot. Yea for Mom. She is a life savor. Then I stopped off at Target and this is what I got today:
Here is what we got:
(4) 184 count Huggies wipes. Reg Price-$5.99 each/My Price $.99
(1) 64 count Huggies wipes in the plastic container. Reg Price-$3.96 each/My Price Free
(5) Garnier Fructis hair styling products. Reg Price-$2.99 each/My Price Free
(3) Garnier Fructis conditioners Reg Price-$2.99 each/My Price Free, 2 were $.99 oops
(4) Purrell hand sanitizers Reg Price-$.99 each/My Price Free
(2) Glade motion sense and spray Reg Price-$7.99 each/My Price Free
(4) Flavored coffee mate creamers Reg Price-$2.49 each/My Price $2.00
(1) Venus Breeze razor Reg Price-$7.44 each/My Price $2.44
All this together, I spent $13.00, it should have been $11.00 but the first Walgreen's mad me so mad that I forgot to use two of my coupons. Darn! But what a deal.
Anyone else out there finding good deals? Please let me know.

Time Change

Don't forget to set your clocks ahead.
Try to have a great day on 1 less hour of sleep.

This is a great site that is super easy to understand and tells you where you can find the coupons. i.e. print them online, which Sunday paper they are in or if they are in the Walgreen's EverSavor book and how to use them to maximize your savings.

I hate SPAM!

I wanted to unsubscribe to an email that I had received today so I opened the mail and clicked on the unsubscribe button and told them I don't want to receive any emails from them anymore. They responded to that request with this message.
"Your request to unsubscribe from the this mailing list has been received and will be processed shortly.
You will be notified of the success or failure by email."

Hello people I don't want anymore email from you.

I just thought that was funny.

Story time at El Cajon Library

We are off to story time at the El Cajon Library. They do it every Wed morning. 9:45 for Toddler and I believe 10:30 for Preschool age. Since I have my neighbor Sam who is 5 with me during the week we will be going to both. They both really enjoy it. Maybe I will see one of you there one of these weeks. Hope you are all having a great week. Hope to see you soon.
