How I Made Money Buying Bread

Yes,  this is all about how I made money buying bread today.  Not a whole heck of a lot, but anytime you can make money, that’s a good thing, right?  🙂

First, you need to understand how my husband and I buy loaves of bread: on clearance.  Today, my husband found a loaf of bread for 59¢ at Kroger.  (Before you ask, yes, we always check the bread carefully to make sure it’s not moldy or anything…  And it either goes in the freezer or the fridge to help preserve it…)

Kroger Clearance Hair Care Money Makers!

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



Run -don’t walk!- to Kroger. As always, I perused through the clearance section of my Kroger yesterday, and was super-delighted with what I found.  (Y’all, seriously, always check the Kroger clearance section.  Check against the coupon database to see if you can stretch your dollar further.  Always!)

I just snagged some super-cheap hair care products.  And because I paired them with coupons, I scored super well!  When I was there earlier, these products were still there.  I cannot guarantee these items will be at your Kroger or that they’ll be on clearance at your store – just wanted to share, in case they are for you, too. (If they are, please let me know!)

Kroger Clear Shampoo ClearanceMost impressively, yes, I made money off these!  I used this: $2.50/1 Clear Scalp & Hair Product, exp. 2/23/14 (RP 01/26/14).

Kroger Clearance John FriedaWOO HOO!  9¢ a piece after coupons…  This is what I used: $3/2 Any two John Frieda Products, exp 3/1/14 (SS1/19/14)

Kroger Suave clearanceAaand more 9¢ conditioner.  Not too shabby!  I used this coupon: $2.50/1 Clear Scalp & Hair Product, exp. 2/23/14 (RP 01/26/14)  You can also use this printable version here or here.

Let me know if you find any of these deals at your Kroger.  And check out the coupon database for more great coupons, and the printable coupon center!

Get in Shape AND Save @ Target!

When I was at one of my Target stores the other day, I saw TONS of fitness gear on clearance! So, if you’re looking to step up your game (you know the pools’ll be opening soon!!), here’s a chance to snag some great deals o help you get in shape.

Have YOU seen other good Target clearance items lately? 🙂

Cheap (?) Charlie Banana Cloth Diapering Items @ Target

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



I wish I could say with more certainty if this was a good deal, but -alas- as “green” as I am, I never got around to researching cloth diapers.  But,  I digress.

On an endcap at Target this afternoon (the Holcomb Bridge, Roswell location), I saw these cloth diaper accessories on clearance.  If you or someone you know is considering cloth diapers, or already do so, this may be a good deal.  (And if it’s NOT a good deal, could someone please contact me and let me know?)  :o)

They’re all Charlie Banana brand, and have all the various pieces you would need: disposable inserts, washable OR disposable inserts, and the outside diaper shell.  (Yeah, my terminology is flawed here, I know!)

HUGE SAVINGS!! Huggies AND Pampers on clearance!!

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



I went to the Perimeter Target today, and they has TONS of diapers on clearance!  I found boxed diapers on clearance for $25, and “big packs” of Pampers on clearance for $16.82.  There were also boxes of Huggies Pure & Natural for just under $16.  Also, Size 6 Huggies Snug and Dry were clearanced for around $6!!


For even deeper savings, use these Target coupon:
* $1/1 Pampers Diapers, exp. 6/9/12 (Target P&G 04/29/12)
$3 off Select Huggies AND Coppertone Item Target printable


Then stack with these, appropriately:
$1.50/1 Pampers Swaddlers or Swaddlers Sensitive Diapers printable
$1.50/1 Pampers Cruisers or Baby Dry Diapers  printable
* $3/2 Huggies Diapers or Refill Wipes, exp. 6/10/12 (SS 05/06/12 R)
$2 off Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers AND Huggies Baby Wipes printable


PampersOn top of these savings, make sure you’ve enrolled in Pampers Gifts to Grow and/or Huggies Enjoy the Ride program, for even deeper savings and rewards!  (Actually, you need not even have children to reap the benefit of these programs, and “free” codes are always  floating around!)


Yes, this is a good way to stock up on cheap diapers! 🙂

A bargain I just couldn’t pass up!!

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



Perhaps by now, it’s well-known that my three favorite “C” words are Carol (daughter’s name), Coupons (duh), and CLEARANCE (double-duh)!  

Coupled with my strange obsession with boxes and various storage containers, this deal at my local Kroger immediately coaxed me over. I snagged 10 storage boxes (shoe box size) for a TOTAL of $2.50!!

What will I do with all of these boxes?  I don’t know yet, but for a quarter a piece, I simply couldn’t resist indulging in my OCD-driven obsession with all things organization.  :o)

**$0.10 Shout Wipes** — Clearance Travel/Trial Size Items at Target!!

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



My daughter and I took a li’l trip to my dearly beloved Target this morning, and -as always- I had to check out the trial/travel size section.  Was I ever-elated to see multiple items with those lovely red stickers on them — the amount of stuff on clearance was enough to send me in to overdrive!  I’m happy to say, I showed a wee bit restraint.  :o) 

Keep in mind: clearance items may vary by store, but here are some of the highlights I saw at my location today.  (I could only stand to be in there for so long, afraid I would overheat with excitement!!)


Shout travel wipes (4 pk) – $0.48 
* $0.75/2 printable coupon
About 10 cents EACH after coupon!!


Playtex Sport Purse Pak (3 ct) – $1.77
$4/2 printable coupon == $0.46 MONEY MAKER!


Dove for Men body and face wash – $0.67
No known coupons available; all exclude trial sizes.  :/


Old Spice & Right Guard Sport deodorant – $0.67
* $1/2 Old Spice Product, exp. 9/30/11 (P&G 08/28/11)
**not sure if this excludes trial/travel size or not??** 

Finally, this isn’t a clearance item, but you can get a good deal right now on Nature Valley and/or Fiber One granola bars.  They’re currently B4G1, priced at 4 for $10.  (That’s $2.00 each with the 5th one.)  Use these printable coupons for $0.75/2 to maximize your savings!


In conclusion, my love affair with Target continues.  Yeah, I love that place so much I would marry — well, I won’t go there.  :o)  Y’all have a great weekend!

The Futility of (Me) Being Fashionable: A Tale of Why I Can't Quit the Clearance Racks

Anyone who’s known me for any length of time will easily testify to my simple, comfortable clothing style.  And I use the term “style” rather loosely.  I have never been a fashion queen, and was well in to my late teens before I even realized that fashions came in seasons.  In fact, until recent enlightenment, I thought Jimmy Choos was some kind of trendy restaurant

Target Web-Site: Coupons, Clearance, and Daily Deals (MUST SEE!)

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



Any Target fan needs to be aware of these three parts of their website: daily deals, coupons, and clearance items.  They’re like hidden gems, but I’m going to lessen your search.

1) Target Daily Deals: Here, you’ll find up to five deals each day.  They each offer free shipping, and are only available online.  As the name suggests, the prices are only good midnight to midnight (that’s one day, people).  You never know what you’ll find here, so it’s worth checking it out from time to time.  Or day to day….  They even have a nifty little time clock, running backwards, so you can see just how urgent it is to snag those great deals!

Target Logo2) Target Coupons: Just as the name suggests, here you can get your hands on printable coupons to use at Target.  Most of them are manufacture coupons, good exclusively at Target (and are much like the ones you’ll see in the Sunday paper).  However, from time to time, you’ll see great little nuggets, like when I found a coupon for $5 off a Merona purse.  Naturally,  I found one for $5 on clearance!  Which leads me right to my next link…..

3)  Target Clearance: Oh, Target!  You’ve taken my two favorite ‘C’ words, and featured them both on your website!  I think I’m in love!  Again, this is a great link to scrounge through.  Just be aware that the clothing sizes are somewhat limited by the time the items reach the clearance section, just like in the real stores!  But you can grab a cute dress for under ten bucks, along with multiple other great deals.  The fun is in the hunt!
