    It has been a worldwind of savings for me these past few days!!!!
    I can't stop smiling!!!!!!

    It's time for a bit of religious "coupon" praise....

    (Please sing-a-long to Amazing Grace)
    Amazing Deals
    How sweet they are
    When coupons make things free
    I once paid up
    But now I know
    That coupons make it cheap!!!


    It started off at SDM on Saturday for 20x the points....and yes I went a bit nuts....

    100x Nexxus shampoos (since walmart never has any) $2.99 each - 100 coupons= 1.00 overage plus tax
    Swiffer wet cloths $6.99- $1.50= $5.49
    Cars 2 car for my little man who was good $6.99
    Chocolate Almonds for the hubby who was good...lol...$4.49
    Eggs $2.29
    2x Pampers Underjams $10.99 - 2x $2 = $8.99 each
    2x Uncle Bens Bistro $1.99 - 2x $0.75 = $1.24 each
    Revlon Nail Buffer $4.99 - $2.00= $2.99
    4x Neutrogena make up wipes $2.99 - 4x $3.00 = 4c overage plus tax
    Bacon $3.00
    2x Nature Valley Almond bars $2.07
    2x Nature Valley Fruit bars $1.06 - 2x 75c = 31c
    Paid $94.82 ($47.02 tax..ouch)
    Earned 75214 points!!!!!
    Saved $322.50 in coupons

    Then today was amazing!!!!

    Went to the post office in SDM to mail my letter....what do I see...
    Neilson Chocolate milk $1.29- $1.00 managers sticker = 29c!!!

    Next to one of two M&M's

    #1
    2x Quiche Florentine
    2x $2.99 - $5 coupon = 98c!!

    #2
    Crispy Twister fries $3.99
    2x Cherry Blossom desserts $1.59 each
    minus $5.00 coupon = $2.17!

    Then to Walmart since No Frills was out of tin foil...I need it to cover my windows to keep the heat out....(yes I'm crazy but it works!!)

    4x Tin Foil $1.00 PM NF
    1x Frenches Mustard PM NF $1.00 - $1.00 = free
    3x Sweet Baby Rays $1.97 - 3x $2.00= 3 cent overage
    1x Allens Apple Juice (with coupons on label) $1.28 - $5.00 coupon (RAOKed to me...no idea where from) $3.72 overage
    Total with Tax 71c!!!!

    Then I got home and the mail came!!!!!!
    4 free yogurts
    2 free Reebok tshirts with 2 75c coupons for cereal and 2 issues of Hockey News
    1 free sample of Voltarin (love this stuff) with $1 off coupon
    1 free Liberte greek yogurt coupon with applogy letter about the milk...so nice!!!
    P&G samples
    and a RAOK from the Big Pink!!! You are the best!!! She knew I couldn't find the minute maid coupons and sent me 15!!!! Back to Walmart!!!!

    Walmart trip 2
    30x Minute maid punch juice PM NF 50c each - 15 B2S$1 = free!!!!!



    And to top it all off my sister and her roommate donated to our autism walk....a substantial amount!!! I am over the moon!!!!

    Thanks for reading and every stay cool today!!!!!

    Oh goodness do I know about having to buy DH something as well if he is good! So annoying.

    Nice job on all the savings!

    Must say never heard of tinfoil on windows your house must be awfully shiny. We bought insulation from Homedepot and cut it to size and smushed it in as tight as we could get it, then when its cool out we just remove it and open windows. Doesn't the tinfoil get ruined?

    I say yes and no to this! Yes it is freaking hot out! That said, Chris has gotten some good deals in the last few days! No Frills Dollar sale Friday, had our garage sale Saturday where he sold water from No Frills that were $1 for 15, sold them 50 cents each or 3 for $1.00. Sold 2 cases!

    Then today he went to price match Tide at Canadian Tire since he was there anyways. Everything got goofed up when he was supposed to get 70 cents in CT$ but only got 30 cents. Manager tried to fix it four times to no avail so he gave him a $5 gift card for the hassle!

    But ask my forehead how hot it is!

    Great getting overage at SDM.
    Great SDM points too.

    Allen's apple juice coupons by RAOK? I remember sending Allen's coupons to someone -- who gave me Red Plum coupons for $4 off President's Choice long distance 'phone cards. Hmmmm, who could it have been???

    Your entire brag is amazing, as always. But what really caught my eye was all of those Optimum points! If SDM has another mega bonus redemption (please, please, please), those points will be worth almost $200!!!! Incredible!!!!
