Target Deals through June 19th

Okay so you probably noticed that the posts have been slow and coming from us lately. The deals, I feel, have been few and far between and most times not even worth heading to the store for but maybe things are on the upswing or maybe it is just because I have my coupons clipped and filed and am trying to be ready to go this week.

For me time is valuable and I really only shop at two or three stores all week. Some people like to deal hunt and hit more stores but for me and in the season of life I am in, two or three stores is all I can do if I am lucky.

With that being said head to Target this week for a few deals worth stopping in for:

**Glade Fabric and Air Odor Eliminator - $3.49 - (just in case you wanted to know I love these for the kids car seats, car mats and entry way rugs!)
Use $1 off printable here or $1 off from recent newspaper insert
Use $2 off Target printable here
$.49

**Ziploc Evolve Baggies - $1.77
Use $1 off 2 coupon from recent newspaper insert
Use $1 off 1 Target printable
$.27 a box
Even if you don't have the newspaper insert coupon this is still a pretty good deal for 50 baggies

**Olay Effects Body Wash - $3.54 (if you can find it in stock?!)
Use $4 off coupon from recent newspaper insert
Use FREE Ivory soap when you buy Olay Effects Body wash from recent insert
BOTH FREE!

**Eight O'clock Coffee - $3.49 (we prefer whole bean 100% Columbian)
Use $1 off printable coupon here OR
Use $.75 off from recent insert OR
Use $1.50 off 2 from recent insert
$2.49 at the cheapest depending on coupons used
Also, Big Lots has these on sale for $2 but they don't except coupons. If you bring in the whole Big Lots add they will price match and you can get these for $2.

**Pull ups - $8.99
If you bring in the CVS ad they will price match to $8.49 THEN
Use a $2 off Huggies Pullups coupon AND
Use the $4 off a Toy Story Toy which are all on sale this week because of the new movie coming out on Friday!
$6.49 for the Pullups and an inexpesive toy!

$10 back from CVS on Sears Gift cards!

NOTE: Some are saying that they called Sears' Customer Service and you can't do the rebate deal using a gift card. Read about it here.

Here is how to make the $50 in FREE men's clothes at Sears deal we told you about even better by shopping at CVS this week.

Shop at CVS this week and buy $50 in Sears gift cards and get $10 in ECB's back!

Now you can't buy gift cards with ECB's so you have to pay $50 out of pocket, but if you are planning on doing the Sears deal then you might as well buy the gift cards at CVS and get $10 in ECB's to spend at CVS for FREE!!

New ways to earn Swagbucks!

It's the summer of swag! If you aren't using Swagbucks, you really should go here and sign up. Anouk and I have been members for over a year! It is a way to search the internet and earn Swagbucks and turn Swagbucks into gift cards or prizes. My favorite? A $5 amazon gift card worth 450 Swagbucks. If you search the internet daily, I feel it is reasonable that you will earn at least a $5 amazon gift a month.

Swagbucks is offering more ways to earn swagbucks other than just internet searches. If you are registered first, make sure you register your birhday in your profile and you will earn 50 Swagbucks on your birthday!

Second, don't forget about the Special Offers we discussed here.

Third!, Swagbucks Surveys! Read about Swagbucks Surveys here on the blog. This is something new Swagbucks just started offering. Read the blog to make sure it is something you are interested in and sign up if you are. The great thing is you can sign up and decided based on odds of being able to participate based on your profile. It is worth a look to rack up more Swagbucks!

Again, if you are not a memeber sign up here and then start searching and earning Swagbucks!
