Am I the only one who adored the Nerds Blizzard back in the day? I also really love the Butterfinger Blizzard.

1. Always Being a Girl kit. Contains a pad, wipe, pantyliner, and a few tampons. I think it's geared toward preteens, but I don't care. Free stuff is free stuff!
2. Coupon for a free bag of Stacy's pita chips. I got this one by becoming a fan of Stacy's on Facebook. The promotion for the free bag is over, but you can still become a fan here.
We had tried to head over to the new Dunkin' Donuts because we heard that they were giving out free samples. They were already closed by the time we got there. So, we went over to Krispy Kreme. We used some of our leftover Christmas coupons, so we had 5 donuts for FREE!

From left to right, bottom row:
2 boxes of Always -- bought at Target when the large box was on clearance and I had a coupon for B1G1 FREE! Paid $4.70 for 2 big boxes!
Tucks to-go pads -- don't know if or when I'll ever need these. But they were FREE after coupon!
Nail files -- a Target purchase. FREE or close to it!
2 packages of disposable razors - Wal-Mart -- FREE with coupon!
5 L'oreal eyeshadows -CVS -- $7.95 -- I was originally going for the $3 ECB's with a $10 L'oreal purchase at CVS. One of the eye shadows cost $4.99. The others rang up at $1.49. They did not count toward the $10, so I never did get the $3 ECB's. This eyeshadow would normally have gone for $28.95, so I did all right.
7 Colgate toothpastes -- 1 was FREE! Two were $.50 each. The other 4 were from a jumbo-pack from Sam's before I learned that I could get toothpaste for free or close to it by couponing. I don't want to think about how much I paid for those.
Left to right, top row:
8 assorted facial cleansers -- Almost free! I used coupons and sales plus ECB deals to get some really great cleansers. Most of these are brands that I would have considered too expensive to buy for myself, like Roc and Olay Regenerist. I probably have close to 2 years worth of cleanser already, but I'll keep buying it if CVS and other stores keep practically giving it away!
2 Axe gift sets -- $10 at Target -- got a $5 gift card back.
Wet Ones -- Wal-Mart -- free or close to it with a coupon!
Re-Nu contact solution - Wal-Mart -- FREE after coupon!
3 Aussie products - CVS -- next to nothing after coupon, sale, and ECB deal!
3 men's Shampoo/conditioner - CVS - on clearance for $1.25 each, down from $5.99. I used $2 ECB's to purchase, so I only paid about $1.75 for all 3!
2 3-packs of Ivory soap -- Wal-Mart -- I had a hard time tracking these down, trying to get $.99 soap free at CVS with a $1 coupon, before I realized that they were only $1.07 at Wal-Mart. So, I paid $.14 for 6 bars of Ivory.
Softsoap refill - Target -- $.14 after coupon!
4 Pantene products -- CVS -- almost free after sales, coupons, and ECB deals!
One trip; three transactions.

I'm NOT addicted, though, to the high price of the make up. That didn't stop me from buying several items! ;)
In the last year I came across another mineral make up called Everyday Minerals. Their prices are so much more reasonable than Bare Minerals. I just had to look into it more. It turns out that their products are just as -- if not more so -- natural than Bare Minerals. They have TONS of shades of foundation and offer several levels of coverage as well. The best part about Everday Minerals is that they offer a free gift of choice with purchase (click the link to see the choices). I purchased a shaded lip balm (click the link to see the one I chose!) for $4.00 and received a 4-piece set of foundation to try. I even got to choose the shades of foundation. I love it as much or more than Bare Minerals. When I finally run out of Bare Minerals, I will be purchasing from Everyday Naturals. If that foundation lasts as long as Bare Minerals does (almost forever), I'll probably never go back to Bare Minerals. I just like the prices AND the fact that I get a free gift of my own choosing with every order I place. Check them out!
It's a good thing that some wonderful bloggers out there can spend the time and can share their findings. I've read these blogs so thoroughly and so often lately that I feel like these girls are my friends. I even talk to my husband about them as though we'd had a conversation. "Collin said today that . . ." or "Kristen mentioned . . ." I'm really NOT a raving lunatic, I promise.
Every smart shopper needs to check out these blogs.
Collin is a mom of 3 who specializes in shopping often and paying little. She's a master-couponer who's not ashamed to carry her coupon stash with her everywhere she goes. She has a great video series you can find on her website or on youtube, so check out Follow Me Monday. Her video on CVS was what made me decide to give shopping there a try. Boy, am I glad I did. hip2save.com is one of my most-frequented sites.
Kristen has saved over $2,200 in just over 7 months to pay for her family's upcoming 11 day vacation to Disney World. She's my kind of lady! Also a master-couponer, Kristen also participates in online surveys to earn points towards valuable prizes like amazon.com gift certificates. She's also incredibly generous -- she just donated the points she's been earning toward a Rainforest Cafe gift certificate to relief efforts in Haiti following the recent devestating earthquake. She was 75% of the way there, now she's starting over. She also has a series of videos on her website (and, I think, on youtube, too.) regarding smart shopping and couponing. She gives great insight on how to make your money work in stores like Wal-Mart, Target, and CVS. She is my original inspiration to try smart shopping. Thanks, Kristen; you've saved us a ton in just the month that I've been smart shopping!
I only just heard about this site yesterday, but I've spent a considerable amount of time there. My favorite aspect of Heather's blog is her fairly-new $40 a week grocery challenge. She's great at stacking coupons with Buy-One-Get-One offers. So far, I've seen mostly information about Publix, although I'll admit to not getting very far on her website. I've prepared a shopping list and coupons specifically for Publix today so I can find out if it's too good to be true. My favorite entry on mysweetsavings is her recent post about her trip to Publix (part of the $40 challenge) in which she spent $14 and change and saved over $130!
Thanks, Collin, Kristen, and Heather, for showing us all how to be smarter shoppers and better stewards of what God has given us.
Now, off to Target, Walmart, CVS, and Publix to save a bundle and spend just a little!
