Goodbye Nebraska

We are leaving Nebraska and I am getting rid of this blog. I will either delete it entirely or change it to reflect the info that is pertinent to my new location.

So, I think there are 3 or 4 of you that visit this site. If any of you want to keep this site I would be glad to transfer it over to you so my name is no longer associated with it. It is pretty easy to do. If no one wants it, then jot down the links that you need because this blog is going the way of the Dodo. It will be gone by September.

Muchas Smoochas

Pampers and Luvs jumbo packs for < $4

I ended up spending $3.72 each for 7 Jumbo packs (6 Pampers and 1 Luvs)

Variations of the deal can be found here and here.

I adjusted things because I didn't mind mixing Pampers and Luvs, which makes the cheapest deal. If you want all Luvs or all Pampers then you can easily adjust your sale and the price only goes up to a max of $4.54 per Jumbo pack.

Oh, you have to have never ordered from for this to work.

So, here are the steps:

1. Go to

(If you belong to ShopatHome or Ebates or Upromise go to through one of them. If not, you should join them all but don't worry it doesn't change the deal.)

2. Find the Pampers Baby Dry XL Case. Click the $1.50 ecoupon box. Add the Pampers to your shopping cart. I got size 1 diapers.

3. Add a Luvs jumbo pack to you shopping cart. I got the newborn ones because...I am having a newborn. It turns out they are on sale as well. The sizes you choose will change your total a bit.

4. Now your total is over $49 which is important because this is how you qualify for free shipping.

5. Type in the code: 100C7696 This will take $10 off your order.

6. Buy your diapers. If you ordered the same sizes I did your total out of pocket would be $40.98 for the equivalent of 7.25 Jumbo packs. That's about $5.25 per pack This is a pretty good deal by itself...but there's a rebate!

7. Print this form here that offers you either a free magazine subscription or a $14.97 rebate. You can also print the rebate when you are checking out if you'd rather. It's at the bottom of the screen. Anyway, fill it out, mail it in, and get sweet $14.97 back.

8. Your total: 26.01 for 7 Jumbo packs of Diapers (6 Pampers and 1 Luvs). That's $3.72 a pack. Whoop Whoop!

I am not sure if any still checks this, but I have a question. So I have noticed a lot of items going on sale for Christmas. I have been looking for varies presents and I have seen some cheaper items. I don't know whether to wait to by it to see if it will go any cheaper or snag it while I can. Cause you never know what future deals there will be like the day after Thanksgiving. What advice or experiences do you have? So you wait and risk it being any cheaper than it is? Just comment and let me know. Thanks!

Couponing Group Rises Again!

Hi guys.

It's Fall and the smell of apples, the bright colors of changing leaves, and crisp clip of scissors cutting coupons is on my mind. A lot of people have approached me about a fall coupon group.Some people want to learn and some people want to swap and show and tell.

So, I want to resurrect the coupon group. Here is my plan:

1/2 hour before the group starts there will be a couponing class. This is strictly for people who want to get started.

Then the group starts and will consist of the following:

-one 5-8 minute presentation of some frugal/ money saving skill (for example I was thinking of someone explaining how to make their own cleaning solutions, or laundry soap)

-coupon trading

-show and tell (everyone can show off and share their awesome deals if they want.)

The End.

I figure the added structure might be good so that everyone at different levels of couponing would benefit. And, if you don't want to hear another lecture about how to cut coupons you can just show up after the couponing class.

I was thinking that it might be beneficial to have the group either on Mondays (right after coupons come out) or on Thursdays (Right after we have new grocery store ads).

I know some of you have classes (Christina) and if you want to come I don't want to schedule a time when you are in school. Let me know if you have preferences on times.

Roberts Dairy Club

Robert's Milk goes on sale periodically for $1.99 a gallon at SuperSaver. You can sign up here to become a member and get coupons. I just signed up and they offered me a coupon for 40 cents off sour cream. I am hoping that milk coupons will be put up in the future.
