Rite Aid: Present Stash Started

Rite Aid: Present Stash Started

My grandma is finally understanding this whole “use your stockpile for gifts” thing. Which means I’m in trouble. See, she asked her friend what deodorant he wears. It was Sure. Coincidentally, I had four in a stash … that ended up getting mailed along with some other stockpile stuff as a present to him.

Which means from now on, I’ll probably end up mailing him a birthday gift.

Luckily for me, I found a great deal on Sure for Men this week at Rite Aid. Sure and Ban deodorants are bogo. So, when I saw the ad on Saturday, I had Beth run to Rite Aid to check out the price. It’s $2.99 for the Sure. And in today’s inserts, there is a coupon for $1.50/1 Sure for Men. Use two of those, and you’re looking at two free deodorants.

There’s also a $1/1 coupon, so you can use that too if you want. But then that means paying for the deodorant. Which I can’t do because I already have to pay shipping on this birthday gift.

PSA: Bergen Record Cheap Today

PSA: Bergen Record Cheap Today

If you live close to me — which I know some of you do — trade your regular paper for The Bergen Record today [[February 28]].

For whatever reason, The Record is a mere 50 cents today. The regular price is $1.50, so this is like getting three for one. Now, I don’t know why you would want three papers today since there is only one set of inserts. In a way, that’s a bummer. But, on the other hand, it’s so much less for me to type into our coupon database, so I’m not too upset. I did buy my regular two copies, but you better believe that if there were multiple inserts this week, I would have been snatching up copies.

Sunday Speak: Where Do You Donate?

Sunday Speak: Where Do You Donate?

With all the tragedies happening lately, you want to give to everyone. At least, I do. I want to help every earthquake-torn nation.

But I can’t.

My wallet and stockpile can only go so far.

I mostly donate to this organization called People to People. My best friend in grammar school’s parents actually founded the organization once upon a time. Now, it’s tied to my church, and any donations made to my church go there, unless there’s something else going on at my church.

My church in Pennsylvania was always the recipient of my excess stockpile when I was there. Once I found out the church took HBA items, not just food, I did what I could. I tried to donate food too, but my stash of that wasn’t ever monumental when I lived there [[different supermarkets]]. I would donate pet products to the SPCA all the time. For some reason, I was on this one store’s mailing list and I was getting free pet product coupons weekly. Plus, when you bought anything at the store, there were tons of free samples to choose from. So I was forever in the SPCA with bag fulls, so it seemed.

So, this week’s Sunday Speak question is this: Where do you donate? And what do you donate?

Valentine’s: Love Is Over

Valentine’s: Love Is Over

I love Valentine’s Day. I know it’s a completely commercial holiday made by Hallmark, but I love seeing hearts around and thinking about love and all that gushy stuff.

It’s sweet.

But, it’s on it’s way out.

Today [[the second Sunday after the holiday]] CVS will be pushing the V-Day candy out the door by making it 90-percent off. Yup, it’ll be that cheap. So head over to CVS and pick up some bags of candy for next year. You may not know who your sweetheart will be next year, but the chance of you getting someone a gift is pretty high. So you might as well stock up now.

Happy Birthday To You

Yup, today’s the day folks. It’s Beth’s birthday. I’m not sure how old she’s telling people she is today, so I didn’t want to spoil it but putting her birthday number on the cake. So I put up a picture with the number one — because she’s the number one co-blogger anyone could ask for.

Happy Birthday Beth!
