Petsmart has good savings now....

'Live well,shop smarter'.

on pet accessories and bones from XMAS. Rawhide doesn't expire so I bought more when had already stocked up on post XMAS sale bones from Walmart.  I also bought two battery operated candles can put in my window year round as pastoral and spiritual,not just XMASy. Was just a buck. Also go two big boxes of miniature candy canes marked down 75% from $2.50,75 cents each. Don't expire til june of this year. love peppermint and so does my dog so will use up by then. Got Billy Graham XMAS cards n box for next season for $1.25.

Also CVS has free candy with coupon. ( .75 minus .75 coupon. These are good promotions they do to get you in the store so then will buy something else. Usually do this with soda too. My attitude is clear. Any savings is good and can be used for an item wouldn't normally get like treated myself to Seattle's blend coffee for $7 instead of my usually on sale Maxwell House blend for $2.99. Also bough a London broil meat for $11. There is enough for two meals and portions easy. I am content with 4 slices with a salad so.. all good.

Also purchased some liquor like gin,vodka,whisky can mix drinks at home with instead of paying $ 7.00 each for a drink in a bar/restaurant.  Also bought some orange,coconut juices and milk for ingredients. Had bought pineapples in can. Looking for a cheap blender can mix things with. Will try Walmart.

Bought a Fisher Price Interactive Learning Toy for Children Cheap...


'Freaky Frugalite Pic from her blog'
at Walmart today in the clearance isle. It was originally $ 30 and was reduced for XMAS to $5 and is now $ 2.50! Great deal. Also saw children's electronic guitar/keyboard for $ 5.

I also saw many toys cheap at Family Dollar during XMAS season. Now they have the children's clothing reduced for $ 1-2. Anyone wiht kids knows how pricey toys and clothing can be.

Also bought Russel Stover candy in a nice gift box for me and my family for $ 2.99. It originally was $ 8.99 and then was reduced to $ 4.99 for the holiday and now is $ 2 off with coupon.

Bought a new color 3-in-1 color Printer at CVS for..



$ 39.99. WAs originally $ 89.99 but was on sale and t hen Ihad a coupon based on my shopping history. All I did was scan it and I received some coupons toward my new purchases! Fun!! The printer is a scanner and copy machine as well. There is no fasx or phone but..I stillhave my old printer for that if I choose to connect it but won't as I have no phone where I live at the moment. (Had had a problem connecting it as Verizon came out three times already! ugh..)

You can also save if you recycle your ink cartridges at Staples and also at the Lexmark web site. Lexmark has a better deal than Staples which offers a few dollars off on your next cartridge. They give you a FREE cartridge if you return 5.
