Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover $10 ends 9/2

**UPDATE: Extended until midnight 9/3!!!**

Visit to view the items that he has on SUPERsale for Labor Day. I've never read Total Money Makeover, but my husband and I have been wanting to buy this book for some time. When we heard that there was a sale, we jumped right on it!!!

I've heard wonderful things about Dave Ramsey. I even pushed to get his Financial Peace University high school curriculum in our school since I am teaching a Mathematics Money Management course this year.

There are several items on sale including Total Money Makeover. However, if you can afford it, there is a Starter Special for $49.98 which includes two of his books, two DVDs, and several other tools. Go place your order today! (By the way, Dave does NOT take credit card payments!)

$5 Olay Regenerist Coupon

Have you "discovered" Olay regenerist yet? It is by far, single-handedly the BEST skin product I have ever used. I learned about it several years ago when I went to a dermatologist before my wedding. My skin isn't horrible, but ladies you know how we want to look our absolute BEST on our wedding day! She suggested that I try Olay regenerist and then she said, "I'd give you some free samples, but I take them all home and use them myself." That was the most convincing referral I'd ever heard, so I bought some and have been using it ever since (in between pregnancies - it's not suggested for pregnant women).

Olay is offering a $5 coupon for their Regenerist products at their website here. And just in time! I need to restock my daily serum and my daily thermal mini-peel!

Cheap Baby Wipes at Walgreens

I found boxes of Walgreens Comfort-Smooth wipes (400 ct) on clearance at my Walgreens for $5.24. It includes 5 - 80 ct refills - that's $1 per pack!

I purchased them last night along with some Tide detergent, school supplies, Preparation-H ($$-maker), Lysol Neutra-air starter kit, and more with the $5/$20 coupon. I paid a total of $7.72 (after spending the balance of my Gift Card)!

Slowing Down for a minute

School is back in session here in Atlanta. As a result, I am finding that my time (and energy) are waning - thanks to the 150 students I teach and my own two beautiful (but demanding) children and my dear husband. (Hi honey!)

That being the case, I've slowed down on my shopping trips and hence my blogging. However, I do not intend to stop altogether. I believe in this blog and in helping my readers find a good (and often unadvertised) deal and so will continue this blog as best I can.

To my readers, stay tuned. I will continue bringing the deals when I can. In between blogs, be sure to visit my favorite blogs on the list on the right for ongoing deals. Many of the blog writers are Stay-At-Home-Moms who are able to blog several times a day! (Lord, help me not to be ENVIOUS! LOL!)

Buy AXE, Get a free movie!

I got a tip from hotcouponworld that if you buy 4 AXE body washes (trial size works!), you will get a coupon for 2 free movie tickets when you checkout. When I tried it out, I got a coupon for 1 free AXE detailer (which looks like a glorified MAN-loofah) and 1 free movie ticket.

I wish I would've gotten 2 tickets, but 1 ticket is great considering I only spent a fraction of the cost of a movie ticket AND I got my husband a nice treat!
Give it a try and then leave me a comment to let me know if it worked for you!
When I went to the website to redeem my free "ticket" it actually turned out to be TWO!! WooHoo!!
Sources say that this deal is good until Aug. 31st.
***UPDATE #2***
Sources say that they "fixed" this deal to NOT work with the trial sizes :-(
You have to purchase regular sizes to get the movie tix. For more info, check out the Walgreens - Register Rewards forum at

Theragran-M Vitamins for $1 @ Walgreens

Theragran-M vitamins are B1G1 this week at Walgreens. If you have the $50 Prescription Savings Booklet (which you can request at the pharmacy if they are not sitting out), there is a $4 coupon for the vitamins.

Get the vitamins that are $9.99 each. When the cashier scans the coupon, it will take $4 off of EACH pack of vitamins. (That's $8!) Then the 2nd pack of vitamins will come off altogether leaving you with a balance of $2 and some change.

That's $1 for each pack!

CVS Trip 7/31/08 - How does it happen????

I have to be honest... I'm not quite sure how it works out, but I assure you that I keep getting FREE STUFF at CVS! Here's what I got during my latest trip:

I had ALOT of trouble cashing in on the Lifesaver deal as the manager of my local CVS store did not want to take my BOGO coupons!! She kept telling me "Well, you can't have both of them for free - it doesn't work like that!" I came home and called the corporate office (1-800-SHOP-CVS) and spoke with an Extra Care representative about my experience. The rep assured me that all I should've had to pay was tax!! So, I returned to the store - THANKFULLY the manager I spoke with the first time was gone. The supervisor on duty was much more accomodating and I was able to get 10 bags of free Lifesavers and $5 ECBs! WooHoo!

Anyhow, as I was saying... Somehow everything you see in the picture was free - except for the vitamins. I did have to pay $30 for my prenatal vitamins. But that was the only OOP expense I had. I paid for everything else with coupons and previously earned ECBs and when I was done, I had earned $27 in new ECBs to replace the ones I paid with!

Heres what I got:
10 - Lifesavers
4 - Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
1 - Revlon Lip Blush
4 - Johnson & Johnson Baby wash/lotion
1 - Neosporin
1 - Stuart Prenatal Vitamins 100 ct.

5 - BOGO Lifesavers bag
2 - $2/2 Johnson's baby wash or lotion (printable - The Coupon Loop)
1 - $2/1 Revlon products (7/27 newspaper insert)
1 - $1/1 Neosporin (printable - The Coupon Loop)
1 - $5/1 Stuart vitamins (requested from their website)
