Publix Weekly Ad Matchups

Be sure to check out Passionate Penny Pincher for this weeks Publix ad and coupon match-ups.  She really is the reason why I do so well and save so much money by shopping at Publix.

Personally, I'm taking this week off from grocery shopping so I won't even point out my favorite deals... because I don't have any (not that there aren't some good ones I just don't want to look and taunt myself!).

Free Glade Scented Oil Candle from Right@Home

Hurry! Right@Home is offering a FREE Glade Scented Oil Candle in "Angel Whisper" scent to the first 5,000 who request.  Just click here and enter your info and look for it in your mail in a few weeks.

Valentines Gift Idea: 40% OFF at CanvasPeople.com (PLUS Free Shipping)

Canvas PeopleI've ordered at least 3 different canvases now from Canvas People and the product is great. We love them and they make great gifts. Right now they are offering a great deal with 40% OFF their canvases and FREE SHIPPING on any size canvas.

Be sure to Use coupon code "love143"

If you order by Feb. 4 you can get it in time for Valentines Day, but even if you don't, these would also make great Mother's Day gifts (and that's just around the corner).

We get to see Dave Ramsey LIVE Saturday

We are so looking forward to going to Dave Ramsey's LIVE event on Saturday.  We managed to snag coupons to the Nashville event for just $20 each.  As you've probably read by now we took the FPU class last fall and we've learned so much.  I think right now we are just starting to edge off of the "high" that the class put us on.  We've saved so much money and finally have our Emergency Fund fully funded.  Now we are working on getting our retirement investment going and paying off the house.  BUT, we want a vacation.  It's hard to keep that motivation forever and stay "gazelle intense".  So we really need this live event to really give us another bump to keep going.  You can bet I'll be on here Sunday reporting on our experience.

In the meantime, I did want to share this deal that Dave has on his website for his "Starter Special", it's his 2 best selling books, - "The Total Money MakeOver" and "Financial Peace Revisited" as well as 2 of his DVDs "Dumping Debt" and "Cash Flow Planning" PLUS the designer Envelope System and his budgeting software.  All for just $49!  This is a great way to get started on turning your financial life around and a great price for all of these items.  Grab that deal here.

Sunday Coupon Preview

It's that time, it looks like this week we are just expecting 1 insert in the paper (which will give us time to catch up from having so many last Sunday).  Check out Sunday Coupon Previews for updates on which coupons we are looking for.

$5 Zantac Coupon

Grab a $5 Off Zantac coupon here.  Normally we see these with $3 Off, so this is a nice little bump.

New Coupons.com Coupons

Lots of new coupons on Coupons.com and probably many more over the course of today and tomorrow (start of the month and all).  Here are some of the new ones I'm seeing...

$7/1 K-Y Brand coupon

There's a super high value coupon for K-Y Brand lube on Facebook. Just like Couples Place by K-Y Brand on Facebook and click the "Offers" tab to download & print the coupon. I believe K-Y is also currently on sale at Rite Aid, and this coupon would make it a money-maker.

Valentines Swagbuck BIlls - Collect Em All

Swagbucks is at it again with their Collectors Bills.  When you search or earn Swagbucks in other ways over the next 2 weeks be on the look out for special Valentines Collectors Bills (just look for the Valentines theme).  If you manage to snag all 5 before Valentines Day you'll get an extra 50 Swagbucks.

Also, if you are on Twitter, save the image of your Collectors Bills and then tweet it with the hashtag #ValentineBills for the chance to win another 200 Swagbucks!

Search & Win

Not familiar with Swagbucks? It's by far the easiest way to earn FREE money online. Just use the Swagbucks search engine to do the searches you'd normally do, play games in their games area, watch Swagbucks TV or even buy great daily deals and you'll earn Swagbucks that you can trade in for anything from an Amazon gift certificate (my usual choice) to video games or electronics.  Just click here to get started. (You'll get 30 Swagbucks just for joining - and it only takes 450 to grab a $5 Amazon card).

The Coupon Thief

A mail carrier in NY is being accused of stealing thousands of coupons that were intended for patrons on his route and then selling them on Ebay.  Read the full story here.  This actually makes me glad that 99% of our coupons in this area show up via the newspaper, at least then all I have to worry about is people stealing the inserts out of the papers they didn't buy!
