georgia pacific

I’ve mentioned before that printable coupons are awesome, but they do use up printer paper and ink.

There’s a great new $.75/1 Georgia-Pacific Printable Coupon.  Use it at a store that doubles and that’s a $1.50 savings.

I’ll definitely be checking to see if Giant Eagle has it next time I stop there.

Find more printable coupons here.

With the exception of the ham (that I’ll be picking up at Bottom Dollar this week) I am now all set for Christmas dinner between this trip, past Coupon “High” trips and my stockpile. 

While this wasn’t a huge savings trip, it still was fun because I did find a couple great deals.

My favorite had to be the Turkey Baster for just 29 cents.  That’s a 90% savings.  I reached over to grab one and a gentleman behind me said, “Boy am I glad I saw you grab that.  It’s an awesome price and I just threw my other one out the other day.  I might just pick up two at that price.”  29 cents beats even the dollar store price so I LOVE it.

About half my cost this trip was for Olay Moisturizer.  While I probably could have found a better deal at the drugstores, right now with Christmas quickly approaching time is worth more to me then the little bit more I could have saved.  Also I am completely out of the moisturizer.  It was at least $3 off the regular Giant Eagle price and I had a two dollar coupon.  In addition there is a $15 Rebate wyb $50 worth or products deal here.

Here are the other items I picked up.  Unless otherwise mentioned, I used the Giant Eagle deals shared here.

  • Oscar Mayer Bologna $1.50 – no coupon
  • Apple Jelly – $1.59 – will be using it in this ham glaze recipe.
  • Extra Gum – 49 cents each using $.40/1 Extra Gum printable that is NLA
  • French’s Fried Onions –  My paper actually had 75 cents coupon in it so it was just $1.79 after coupon was doubled
  • Ziploc Containers – $3 after coupon and SavingStar eOffer plus got 10 cents BFPs.  With maximum savings that makes for a freebie.  I didn’t buy the bags because I had already used the bag SavingStar eOffer.
  • 6 Jello Mixes 75 cents each and wyb 6 you get free jello jiggler mold.
  • 2 Zest Body Washes – while the Zest bar soap coupon doesn’t double, the Body Wash coupon does.  So that makes the unadvertised deal Zest Body Wash only 99 cents each.  I love 75 cents coupons at Giant Eagle.
  • 2 Miracle Whip – Unfortunately my coupon was for $1/2, not the $.50/1 coupon on Miracle Whip.  Still $2 per jar isn’t too bad.
  • 2 Sierra Mist – The hang tag that works on the unadvertised deal for Schweppes, also works on Sierra Mist and makes them just 49 cents each. 
  • In addition, I found some more unadvertised deals that I’ll be sharing a bit later – so stay tuned.

    Just click the banner above and you will get a set of Special Keepsake Maps of a 4 Disney World Parks.  Not only that, but it includes a whole pack of Free Disney Stickers.  These alone would make a great stocking stuffer.

    I received the Free Disney World Customized Maps in the summer and they are definitely something that could be framed as a great memento.

    repurpose-toys

    One of my favorite ways to save money is to Repurpose Things, and that’s exactly what I did today while playing with my 2 year old.

    This time I repurposed a toy.  Since I have 5 kids ranging from 2 to 16, we have picked up many different toys through out the years.  As one kid outgrows them I store them in the basement for the next.   However, sometimes the smaller items that go with that toy get lost or become obsolete in the waiting years or something better comes out.

    In this case, my older daughters had found two brand new packs of moon sand when they cleaned their room.  Of course my youngest decided she wanted to play with it.  At first, I started pulling out items from my kitchen drawers for us to use with it.  Then I remembered  a toy down in the basement that had been my 8 or 11 year olds I thought was made for moon sand.

    I told my little one to wait and hurried down stairs.  I grabbed the toy (which amazingly was where I thought it should be) and almost felt totally defeated.  The box said Moon Dough, not Moon Sand.  

    It didn’t defeat me for long though.  I thought how different can these items really be.  I think they keep changing them just for marketing purposes.  First it was Moon Dough, then Moon Sand and this year it’s Kinetic Sand (which I haven’t bought by the way.)

    So we tried the Moon Sand in the Moon Dough Toy.  Guess What??  It worked perfectly!  We played with the Moon Dough Farm Toy for about an hour and she loved it.

    Lesson Learned and Big Money Saver– You don’t have to buy the newest toys to fit with the newest marketing scheme.  Many times old items will work great with the new because they will be so similar. 

    Do you have an example of a Toy You Repurposed? (Marketing Related or Not)
