Deals of the week

This is it! According to fabulessly frugal, the Quaker sale is back at Albertsons, Wednesday through Tuesday. This is the best prices of the year on Quaker cereal and oatmeal (even without coupons).I am excited since my kids love instant oatmeal. There really is a difference between store brand and Quaker too. The deal is buy ten products (priced at either $1.50 or $2) and get $5 off instantly at the register. Fabulessly frugal and the krazy coupon lady have the coupon matchups.

Another great find this week is the 30 days of beauty sweepstakes that I read about in O and Harper's Bazaar. It is a daily sweepstakes for the month of October. Everyday there is a high end beauty prize they are giving away. I have won some great prizes in sweepstakes, including $5,000, a Amazon Kindle, and lots of gifts cards/coupons. Just click on the link and fill in the form. Make sure you check no on the magazine offers (already defaulted to no). You might also want to set up a "junk" email account if you are going to be entering lots of sweepstakes or getting lots of freebies so you are getting lots of unwanted emails in your regular account.


  1. Maceys has their quaker sale through today. It was buy 5 boxes and then with the coupon it was 98 cents a box and then the oatmeal was 1.48 a box with the coupon so pretty good deal. I stocked up on captain crunch, oatmeal squares, granola bars, life, and oatmeal. I think I bought 15 boxes and paid 19.46 for it all. Great deal.

  2. I'm glad I read your post before I went to Target today. You saved me $.50 a box on granola bars. But I did get 5 bottle of Motts apple juice for $.75 each after a $5 gift card. So that was good. But my best deal of the day was at Harmons where I got 4 packages of Keebler cookies for $.25 each! They were on sale for $.99 each and I had two coupons for $1.50 off two. I felt pretty good about that.
