Total before coupons was $44.48. After coupons and catalina I ONLY spent $19.50... a savings of 56%!

CVS: 4 Old Spice Body Washes FREE!

Well the Gillette Body wash deal at CVS this week is wildly popular, go figure:)

When I went in yesterday morning to our CVS they were completely out of the Gillette Body wash but had plenty of the Old Spice. I asked a manger if she had any more Gillette in the back and they did not. I pointed out that my Gillette coupons were expiring 5/31 and I was disappointed that I wouldn't get to use them.

To my surprise she said she would take those coupons and use them for the Old Spice! I guess they have done this for a few other people as well! So here is how my deal worked out:
  • Bought 4 Old Spice Body Washes - $16
  • Used 2 B1G1 Gillette Coupons - -$8
  • Used $4/2 Gillette Coupon - $4
Total - $4.00 and I got back $8 EBs! It was a $4 money maker!

Children's Place: $5 Swim Suits

A friend called yesterday to tell me that The Children's Place has their swim suits on sale for only $5! Be sure to take your 15% off coupons with you!

If you do not recieve coupons be sure to sign up in the store!

Dillons: Free Redbox Codes

A reader commented to let me know about this deal she got at Dillons (Kroger):

"I just bought the 6 pepsi 2 liters at Dillons (get them for .84/1 when you buy 6), and to my surprise, 2 catalinas with free Redbox codes printed out, courtesy of Pepsi! good through 8/31."

I have been reading that you get 1 catalina with a FREE code when you by only 3 Pepsi 2-liters. They are on sale for $1.25, but when you buy 4 you get 2 FREE making the 2-liters only .84/1 when you technically buy 6. So in the spirit of getting the most bang for your buck, I would just get the 6 Pepsi 2-liters and then get 2 FREE Red Box codes!

Menu Plan Monday 5/25

Have I been menu planning? The answer is no, not really. I have had an idea of what we were going to eat, but I never formally planned my last 3 weeks. We had some interruptions here and there and it all worked out. My grocery budget is still in tact and I look to come out ahead this month:) Here is my $50/week plan for this week:

Saturday: Hot dogs and burgers on the grill, baked beans, pasta salad, chips and fruit.
Sunday: Left overs!
Monday: Cheeseburger Rolls, green beans, and oven fries
Tuesday: Ritzy chicken, broccoli with rice
Wednesday: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn
Thursday: Possibly left overs
Friday: Pizza as usual!

Ritzy Chicken is a recipe I got from a cook book that I purchased through Money Saving Mom. It is pretty good!
