Meijer 3/2/15

Meijer had some mperk's coupons available so I decided to run up and see if I could get any of the 5 free yogurts they had offered me coupons for - I ended up finding one. Just one. To be honest I was kind of surprised I even found one. I have tried on multiple occasions to get one of their freebies and it seems like they are always out. Anyway I did use a few of their mperks coupons so this is how it broke down:

Bonza Blueberry Yogurt Pouch $1.29 - Free item offer
2 Back to Nature Mac & Cheese $1.50/e - used $1 off 2 mperks
Horizon Cheddar Crackers $3.29 - used $2.00 mperks
Horizon Graham Crackers $3.29 - used $2.00 mperks
Horizon Sandwich Crackers $4.29 - used $2.00 mperks
Bag of 4 Avocado's $1.99 - used $1 mperks (my favorite deal actually because I love avocado's!)

Spent: $7.86

Estate Sale Treasures

 I found some great treasures this week at a local estate sale, I had to escape after the kids being home for so many day's since it's too cold for school. I ended up spending $25.75. I didn't even think twice about picking up this Coleman cooler for $15 - I've been looking for a cool retro cooler for myself for a while now and I love the locking handle, diamond name plate and blue color!
 This is a Josef Originals Santa napkin/Christmas card holder $3 - it's so kitschy!
 Retro starburst serving pieces for $1.50 (are you sensing a pattern of retro 50's here yet?)
I also bought 2 sharpening stones for $1 each, a package of birthday candles for $0.25, an elf for $0.50, a leather change purse for $0.50, mini baster for $1 and two craftsman screwdrivers for $1 each. I always am on the lookout for inexpensive Craftsman hand tools - they are great quality and have a lifetime warranty on them.

Stacking Online Deals

Since stores have become more and more strict about coupon use those of us looking to save money have stared to have to get more creative. With the introduction of online services like Checkout 51, Savingstar and (if you have an iphone) ibotta there is still a chance to save and better yet there are opportunities to save on fresh and healthy food more often. Here is just a basic example of stacking offers from Checkout 51 and Savingstar:

3 Banana's $0.65
Checkout 51 offer of $0.25 back
Savingstar offer of 20% back $0.13

Total Cost is now $0.27

That is a savings of $0.38 over half the original cost - now I know to most $0.38 is nothing BUT you know it add's up fast over time!

Disney On Ice Princesses & Heroes

Disney on Ice is asking it's fan's what their favorite Disney on Ice memory is. My favorite memory is taking my daughter to see it the very first time, she was 4 and watching her eyes light up at the first sight of her favorite princesses brought tears to my eyes. She continues to beg me to go to the new show every year and enjoy's it just as much. 

Want to see more? Check out this great Disney on Ice Video

Purchase your tickets for the new Princesses & Heroes Show here coming to the Palace of Auburn Hills this October!

I received something of value from Feld Entertainment as part of their Insider Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I'm not ready for back to school

I feel like I'm being deluged with back to school talk, commercials on TV for school supplies, blog posts about lunch tricks. Maybe I'm in the minority but I want these remaining weeks of summer vacation to be just that. To be relaxed and fun and not filled with "things". My kids don't go back to school until September and I plan to take every one of those days left until then to enjoy and cherish.
