Topsy-Turvy world!

I'm not sure if this deal is going on at all CVS stores, but when I went to mine (at Alpine and Harrison) yesterday, they had all their Topsy-Turvy planters at 90% off! I got a strawberry Topsy-Turvy planter for $0.69 and a tomato one for $0.99! I've always wanted to try these out, and at that price, I couldn't resist!

Let us know if you find these at your CVS!

Score some free SoBe water!

Have you been playing the Heads or Tails SoBe game? I've played pretty consistently and gotten at least a BOGO coupon every time! If you're like me and have gotten tons of those coupons printed, then you'll want to head over to Hilander this week! They have their SoBe drinks for $0.99, but if you buy 8 of them you get $4 off, making them $0.49 a piece. Use your BOGO coupons (4 of them) and you'll get them for free - well, you'll have to pay taxes.

I have 16 in my fridge! :) Enjoy!

Survey company

*** Looks like they are no longer taking new applications as of today! ***

I've been with Pine Cone Surveys for more than 6 months now and I have to say they are my favorite survey company. I get paid $3 for each survey I take, and the surveys are normally no more than 15-20 minutes a piece . . . plus I've gotten to try out new products that aren't even on the market! (But I can't give you details because it's confidential!). At first they would send me a $3 check every time, but after a few surveys I became eligible to receive payment through PayPal. It's been great!

Apparently they're accepting new applications for survey takers: sign up and hopefully you'll be accepted!

All those school supply deals!!

Just wanted to point you to a wonderful tool at SaveAtHomeMommy.com

She has a great "spreadsheet" of sorts that give you price comparisons for school supplies from 8 different stores this week. After reading the list, I've decided to stop by Walgreens where most of the stuff I want is! Saves me a trip to multiple stores - sure the 2 pocket folders are $0.01 somewhere else, but I'm sure I'll save more than the $0.08 extra I'll be paying for them at Walgreens!

Thanks SaveAtHomeMommy.com!
