99 Cent Only Find: Toys Story 3 Buddy Packs!!

2011-08-29 18.49.09

I have been on the hunt for these Toy Story 3 Buddy Packs. I had a twitter buddy (Thanks Christy) give me a heads up when she found them at her store. I ran out and checked my stores on Sunday with no luck. However I swung by my closest store (Ina Road) last night when I had to pick up a few RXs.  Score!!

These retail for $8 although I see them on sale for $5 on the Mattel website. So grabbing them for $0.99 each is a total score!  Lots of possible uses:

 

Christmas/Birthday Gifts

Potty Training Rewards/Prizes

Stocking Stuffers

Party Favors

2011-08-29 August2011 005

Or use them for Disneyland Souvenirs on the Cheap!!

I grabbed 10 different sets to dole out on our trip so that I don’t break the budget on souvenirs.  I’ll let the boys pick a set each day of our trip!

And here are the rest of my purchases from Sunday & Monday

 

 

 

 

 

2011-08-28 August2011 009

 

Knudsen Fat free sour cream, Cream cheese, Nature’s own bread, Aunt Hattie’s Buns, Chips, Raisins, Carrots, Salad, Spinach, Portobello Mushrooms, Lysol toilet bowl cleaner, mini sewing kit (totally lost my sewing box)and mini cereal cups (for our trip).

 
 

 

Please remember selection varies by store… I can’t control this. I am just sharing my own finds. Good luck hunting!

4 1/2 gallons milk $0.88

4 16 oz shredded cheese $2.99

2 Powerades $0.49 – $0.75/2 tearpad = free

2011-08-28 10.55.112011-08-28 10.52.40

There is a Starbucks near the deli and a nice sized eating area.

 

 

 

2011-08-28 10.53.452011-08-28 10.54.33

 

And there is a lovely Cupcake Shoppe with many custom choices. This may be my new favorite hangout!

2011-08-28 10.57.49

And this is the old produce/deli section that is now moved to the new part of the store… Still quite a bit of construction needs to be completed!

 

 

 

 

 

The store is finally coming together!

Old Navy Outlet store at Arizona Mills - accepts Competitor Coupons!


Was over at Arizona Mills Mall today and spotted a sign that said Old Navy Outlet Store there accepts competitor coupons. I spoke with the salesperson and they said as long as it is valid on apparel and not expired they would take them.  They were not sure how long the promotion would last and so far I haven't found anything online about it.

Currently they are also having a Jeans Sale. Toddler Jeans $10.99, Girls/Boys $12.99. 
Earlier I posted some retailer coupons here. The $25 off $50 Coldwater Creek coupon is looking pretty good right now huh?

Fry’s Trip 8/25

2011-08-25 August2011 001

I ran over to Fry’s yesterday morning after dropping of Q at school.  I wanted to get in and out quick to avoid baking to death!

 

I was really hoping to find Kandoo Soap/Wipes but they were out of stock. And to make matters worse, I forgot to get a darn rain check so I will definitely be stopping by again soon!

 

What I did buy:

 

4-1/2 Gallon Fry’s Milk $0.88

6 Powerades $0.49 – $0.75/2 tearpad (circle K) = free

Kroger Bagels $1.50

Cow Pals String Cheese $3.49

Banana Chocolate chip soft cookies $1.89 (bakery markdown) <—YUMMY!

Total $10.34 OOP

 

I love stocking up on freebies like powerade.  It has a long shelf life and it’s great for low blood sugar situations! I plan on trying to find a few more Qs!

99 Cent Only: Hip In A Hurry at a DIFFERENT Store

I ventured to my “other” 99 Cent Only Store today and I found some fun stuff!

2011-08-24 09.56.54

2011-08-24 09.57.11

 

Lots more Hip In A Hurry Vinyl Cutouts! And different designs compared with the other store’s selection.

I definitely did not see these there last week, so keep watching your store. You might get lucky!

 

2011-08-24 09.57.232011-08-24 09.57.402011-08-24 09.58.08 (1)2011-08-24 09.58.27

I know some people have been hunting for these so I took a picture of the aisle where I found them.  It’s sort of a home section with pet items across the aisle.  It would be easy to miss the box on the lower shelf if you weren’t looking closely!

 

I refrained from buying any because I *might* have bought too many robot ones for my boys. 

 

 

2011-08-24 09.56.282011-08-24 09.55.15

 

I found both of these bug fighting “alternatives” to spray on chemicals.  I am not super familiar with either product, so I plan on doing some research online…

Anyone have experience with Bugables or Insect Repelling Superband?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2011-08-24 10.01.342011-08-24 10.01.56

Cheap Sheet Protectors and Crayola Pip Squeaks. I think the markers are a good idea, they are shorter for smaller hands and of course washable!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2011-08-24 09.59.522011-08-24 10.07.19

The 6 pack of cards were a great deal for $0.99 and the selection varied in each package but you COULD see what was in it. I grabbed 2 sets!

And I snapped a quick shot of the smarties selection. I was hoping to see bubble gum smarties… no luck.

 

 

 

 

 

Please remember selection definitely varies by store. I am only sharing the fun stuff I found at my 99 Cent Only store(s). Don’t shoot the messenger if you can’t find the exact same thing at your store. Please.

Fry’s Trip! 8/23

2011-08-23 August2011 001

Here are my Fry’s orders from today!

 

Order #1

4 Diet Coke 12 packs $2.49 (wyb $25 +) – $1/2 peelies = $1.99 each

6 Powerades $0.49 each – $.75/2 tearpad (circle K) = free

3 Dial liquid soap $0.88 each – $0.35 MQ = free

Bud Light 6-pack $6.99 – FREE MQ = free <—We had a product issue once and they sent us a freebie Q

Kroger Cottage Cheese $1.99 – $0.40 Fry’s Q (home mailer) = $1.59

Kroger Bagels $1.50

Sara Lee Bread $1.49

Total $13.21

 

Order #2

6 Powerades $0.49 each – $.75/2 tearpad (circle K) = free

3 Dial liquid soap $0.88 each – $0.35 MQ = free

Total $0! <—Love that!!

 

 

Quick Tip: Save your freebie MQs to use when you need to get your subtotal up…  For example I needed a $25 subtotal to buy my diet coke cheap, so I redeemed the Bud Light coupon today.  Just be careful not to let the freebie Qs expire. I have committed that *Ultimate* couponing error before!
