Free Sample: It’s The Freakin’ Weekend

Free Sample: It’s The Freakin’ Weekend

I don’t wear makeup all that very often. My regimen as of late has been lotion, powder, eye liner, and lip gloss. Which is funny, to me at least, because my regimen before that had ChapStick subbed for lip gloss.

That doesn’t mean I don’t have a ton of makeup for special occasions, because I do, but everyday wear is different.

But I still really want a become beauty free Weekender kit because, well, it’s free. Head over to this link to register for yours.

I don’t know much about become beauty, except that it’s spelled with a lowercase b, it has a US and Australian Web site, and all become items are 50% off right now. I think, but don’t quote me, that it’s like Avon with reps selling and things like that. So, I don’t really know what will be in your beauty kit, but hey, something is better than nothing.

CVS: Osteo Bi-Flex

CVS: Osteo Bi-Flex

I already told you I am using the Move Free products and what a deal they are at Rite Aid. But now CVS is tempting me to try the Osteo Bi-Flex products. See they are on sale buy one get one free and when you buy two Osteo Bi-Flex products, CVS will give you back $3 in extra bucks. And of course, this deal has a limit of six.

The cheapest ones I found at my CVSwas $20.99. There are $4/1 coupons that expire on 12/31 so I am thinking I will use one of them and one of the $5/1 printable coupons from this site. After the coupons, the sale and the extra bucks, it will only be $8.99 for the two of them.

CVS: Renew Your Hands

CVS: Renew Your Hands

CVShas Dawn on sale for 99 cents this week [[ending 01/02]]. The Dawn Hand Renewal is never advertised, but they are almost always included in these sales. I think by now I have more of those than the regular Dawn. Why is that? Well, the Hand Renewal is way more expensive so there is usually a $1/1 coupon in the P&G inserts.

You figure out the deal here yet? With the CVS sale this week and the $1/1 coupon for Dawn Hand Renewal, you are looking at free dish soap.There were also $1/2 coupon which makes them 50 cents each, still a great deal. I have a bunch of these that expire 12/31, so make sure to use them before then. There is a limit of three. I never know if that means three per visit or what? I will have to ask and get back to you since this is not tracked on your receipt as an extra buck deal. I will let you know. In the meantime, stock up!

[[Lisa’s note: When a non-ecb item is limited in the ad, that’s a limit per transaction, not per card. So you can buy three every time you’re in CVS. But, if you buy four, the first three will ring at the sale price and the last will ring at regular price. Also, be sure to check in your Home Made Simple booklet. There’s a $1/1 coupon in there]]

Target: Cheap Sobe

Target: Cheap Sobe

Target has not had many great gift card deals lately. But this week [[ending 01/02]] — how crazy is it that 2009 is almost over — the store finally has a decent deal.

Selected varieties of Sobe LifeWater are on sale 10/$10. You will get a $5 Target gift card when you buy ten. That works out to 50 cents a bottle.

There is a printable coupon for $.25 off that you can print from here. You can print two of them. I hear there are some $.50 off one Sobe LifeWater tearpad coupons out there, I don’t have any of them but if you do even better!

Target: Delicious Desserts

Target: Delicious Desserts

Update: I stopped by Target today and everything was 75% off, except bagged candy, which was only 50% off. My Nestle chocolate chips rang up 67 cents!I like baking. I think we’ve discussed that in a previous post. My real dream goal is to open a bakery, but my more realistic goal is to start a baking Web site, Bakerella style.

In theory, that’s my New Year’s resolution.

See, I just got a new camera for my birthday, and I got a new memory card for Christmas [[mine has been MIA since before the CVS photo book deal, which killed me, let me tell you]]. So now I have all the components for blogging my baking adventures — except, well, a crafty name.

But, nonetheless, photodocumenting my baking may be the goal of 2010 and putting the Web site together and maintaining it will be the resolution of 2011. If you’ve tried running a blog for a year [[as we’ve done with Drugstore Divas — almost]], you’ll realize how much work it takes. And until we can master Drugstore Divas, there’s no way I can split time with my baking site.

Anyway, I bring this up now because Target has Nestle Tollhouse Morsals in a dark chocolate and mint variety, on clearance for $1.49ish [[I add ish because I scanned so many things at Target the other day, the prices are gelling together. I’m actually pretty sure the price was $1.64, but that amounts to a regular price of $3.28, and that doesn’t make any sense]].

If you head over to this link, you can register to print a coupon for $1/1, bringing the chocolate chips down to somewhere around 50 cents. I need to hurry back now that I have my coupon and snatch up what’s left in the store. These can make for pretty baking adventures that will debut, well, eventually.

Rite Aid: Move Free

Rite Aid: Move Free

I’ve told you before about this exact same deal. Funny it started on Sunday and runs through Saturday, January 2. I decided on Sunday I was going to start taking the Move Free pills. My hands gets really stiff and hurt in the morning, so that prompted this. I took the last one from the bottle. I went to read the paper and sure was glad there was a deal at Rite Aid.

I bought two of the Move Free bonus boxes that have 120 pills for $30.99 each. Thankfully, Rite Aid has them buy one get one free this week. There are $5/1 coupons, I used two of them. Then I used a $5/$25 coupon to bring my total out of pocket to just $15.99 plus tax. Really good deal for this.
