Super Savings Saturday

It's that time of the week again. It's Super Savings Saturday over at MoneySavingMom.com. I'm just going to quickly go over my deals for the week.

My trip to Fry's:

$67.02 retail value
$ 23.97 OOP (out of pocket)
_________
$ 43.05 saved (matching coupons w/ ad items)


First time using coupons and rebate program at Walgreen's:
$52.70 retail value
$23.74 OOP
_________
$13.97 saved (using rebates)
$14.99 saved (using coupons)


Not great but I'll get better. I bought several things for London to make Valentine's for her friends in the neighborhood. I didn't have coupons for those items.



The Children's Place:
$51.50 retail value:
$16.81 OOP
_________
$35.94 saved (buying all items on sale plus 20% off coupon)


My Sister-in-law's garage sale:


I did a garage sale with my SIL over at her house. I join in with her about every other year. We usually end up trading a few items. Here's what I got for FREE because she wanted a few of my things:


That's a chocolate fountain which is practically brand-new. They used it twice! I've seen these things in the stores for $35.00 or more. Also, some never-been-used mini cookie cutters from Pampered Chef. I was just eyeing these at a Pampered Chef party I attended two nights ago. They sell for $10.50! You can call that lucky coincidence or you can call it God knowing the desires of your heart. Either way, I consider myself having been very blessed this week!

See you next Saturday with more great deals!
