Weight Watchers Coupons

Here are a couple of new coupons available for Weight Watchers products:

If you have both stores in your area, you should be able to stack these coupons at Publix, for even better savings.  And if you get ALL You magazine, there's also a $.50 Off Coupon that will stack with these.

New Coupons on

Whether you shop at Target or do what I do and use them at Publix (or another store that accepts competitor coupons), the Target website is a place you want to check regularly for new coupons.  They have quite a few new coupons available this week.

Here's the ones I'm printing today:
  • Oscar Mayer weiners Buy 3, Get 1 FREE (will go with the Publix sale this week or next week)
  • $1.50 Off Kraft Cheese (will go with next week's Publix sale)
  • Oscar Mayer DeliFresh lunch meats Buy 3 Get 1 FREE
  • $.75 Off Oscar Mayer Carving Board lunch meats
  • $.75 Off Planters snack product
  • $1 Off Oreos (ok, I'm not printing this one, but thought you might want to).
  • $1.50 Off Archer Farms nuts (10oz or larger)
  • $1/2 Jimmy Dean sausage products (9.6oz or larger)
  • $1 Off Carnation Instant Breakfast
  • $1/2 Special K cereals
  • $1.50 Off Select General Mills products
  • $.75/1 Fiber One cereal
  • $1/2 Select General Mills cereals
Keep in mind that Target coupons are typically store coupons, so they can be stacked with Manufacturer coupons.  However, occasionally the coupons you find on Target's website are Manufacturer coupons.  If that is the case you'll see it printed on the top of the coupon.

Spending Goals: March Week 3

I thought we were going to do ok this week, then we both decided we really wanted to change our eating habits.  So what is this going to mean for our stockpile? I don't know.  For now, it will stay put, luckily most of it is things we will eventually eat anyway.  The major change for both of us was the desire to incorporate more fruits and vegetables.  With that in mind, we spent about $30 at Kroger yesterday on nothing but fresh veggies (and a newspaper).

You can see my last update (for the first half of March) here.

  •  Publix - paid $49.46 for $110.63 worth of groceries (3/18)
  • Walgreens - paid $1.66 for 31.94 worth of products (3/19)
  • Rite Aid - paid $.32 for $34.69 worth of products (3/19)
  • Kroger - paid $29.92 for a whole lotta veggies (3/20)
So far for this month, we've spent $212.39 for $646.25 worth of groceries and drugstore items, for a savings rate of 71.34%.

I'm thinking that next week the only shopping I'll be doing will be drugstores (I've got plenty RR, ECBs & +UPs to spend).

Following the Wal-Mart Coupon Policy?

I have to say that I'm glad I'm not. I'm even more glad I don't really shop there because I think I'd be insane by now.  In following other blogs and seeing updates to Wal-mart's coupon policy it seems like it has changed about once a week since the first of the year (and that's their corporate policy), their store's haven't even kept up with the policy as it has changed, so I don't really know what customers are expected to do.  All I can say is that they do need to get it together soon and decide what their final policy will be and enforce it at the store level, then stick with it, before they lose any more customers.

To date.... first they were taking competitor coupons, then they weren't, then they were AND they were even taking $ Off Purcahase Register Rewards (from Walgreens and similar) and now they aren't taking those but they are still allowing cash back on overage transactions.  I'm figuring that will probably change too in the next week or so.

Rite Aid Trip 3/19

When I got to the store and looked through the ad I noticed that there was nothing mentioned about the Clean & Clear +UP deal (however, the in-ad coupon was present for a change).  I decided that the coupon stack (and the amount of +UPs I have) made this a good enough deal even without getting more +UPs, so I picked up 3 Clean & Clear items.  While shopping, I did something I don't do often enough and actually kept a running total of my items on my calculator. I thought I had the math all figured out on how much I'd need in order to use my +UPs and even picked up 2 pieces of candy as filler, so that I could use $7 worth of +UPs.  I just forgot to take into account the 10% off I get for Silver status.  I'm still learning and luckily, I had another +UP that was $1 less than the 2 I'd planned to use.

3 Clean & Clear items @ $5.84 (after 10% Wellness discount)
- (3) $2/1 Clean & Clear in-ad Qs
- (3) $2/1 Clean & Clear printable Qs
3 packs Dixie paper plates @ $1.97
- $5/3 Video Value Q
1 Blistex @ $1
- $.35/1 Q
2 Russell Stover candies @ 2/$1

- $3/$15  Servey Coupon
- $6 +UPs
= .32 OOP (got back $5+UP and another survey invitation)

This is a huge savings considering that we have always bought our paper plates at CostCo. When I was in CostCo yesterday I noticed their price for 170 of the same paper plates is over $12. I got 135 paper plates for less than $1 (before using any +UPs).

Saturday was an awesome day for drugstore shopping, for me.  I'm finding that even though stores might be out of items at the end of the week, the trip, overall, is less pressure-filled than it would be earlier in the week. The stores are less busy and I can take my time a little more.  And since the stores aren't as busy the cashiers don't mind multiple transactions as much or taking their time to ring you out.

Walgreens Trip 3/19

I'm feeling more and more comfortable with Walgreens. Granted it doesn't hurt that this trip didn't need to involved multiple transactions (although the cashier was more than ready for me to have them).  I started off with $9 in RR (left over from the Swiffer/Schick deals last week) and I was initially worried that I'd only be able to use 1 per transaction (as it seems that some stores set this limit and some don't), so I did the easy thing.... I asked before I checked out.  The girl I asked confirmed that I could use as many as I had so long as my number of coupons did not exceed the number of items purchased.  As luck would have it, they had a great filler for me this week with the 3 padded envelopes for $1.  I'd also read mixed reviews on the ability to use the BOGO Right Aid coupon on top of the BOGO sale.  I didn't ask about this, I just tried it and the cashier did it without saying a word.

So here's what my transaction looked like:
1 Listerine (1L) @ $3.99 (sale)
-$1 coupon
2 Right Guard @ BOGO $4.49
-BOGO coupon
1 Dial Nutriskin lotion @ $4.99 (sale)
-$2 coupon
2 Blistex @ $1 (sale)
- (2) $.35 coupons
6 Scotch padded mailers @ 3/$1 (with in-ad Q)

=$10.66 - $9RR = $2.66 OOP (got back $4RR from Listerine & Dial)
