Albertsons ad

Albertsons does have a pretty good ad this week (at least for stuff I need). I visit all of the Albs in the valley on a semi weekly basis for a little job I do and if you are needing the circular coupons, the Albertsons on Fairview in Meridian and the Albertsons on 12th and Greenhurst in Nampa order tons of extra papers and clip the coupons and place them by the items in the store on a weekly basis (They won my business). I have yet to see any of the stores right in Boise do that but when I do I'll let you know.

Links, and my Emergency Fund Story

I was going to plan my meals for the week... but ended up distracted by my reader that had over 400 items in it!!! I've been neglecting it! Fortunately, I just skim or fly by most of the posts...

BUT - here are some good ones for you to have for YOUR weeks shopping trips!

  • Freddys (I personally have apples, GM cereal, MILK!, eggs/English muffins (see coupon), and bottle liners on my list for tomorrow (this is just from skimming through the ad).
  • Walgreens - here or here (I have $12 in Register Rewards from last weeks shopping trip! I have yet to decide the best way to use them!) Kellogg's cereal for a buck after you use the manufacturer coupons! Cool!
  • Free Rayovac batteries at Target! Check out the link here - I did this myself last week. The batteries were in the dollar spot... you can never have enough batteries!!
  • This is a nice post from Moms Need to Know - it is a coupon insert preview... even though you already have your coupons from today, still check it out. She gives some advice on particular coupons and how/when to use them - and she suggests how many inserts you should try to collect.
On a more personal note, I loved this post from Moms Need to Know on "The Importance of an Emergency Fund". For the first time in our married life, my husband and I worked for and actually HAD an emergency fund. I hadn't even cashed the checks yet (he worked refereeing football games for a youth league in Sept and Oct). The first week of November my fridge leaked and ruined my kitchen floor! Thank HEAVENS we had that Emergency Fund! I now have a much nicer floor, thanks to my good homeowners insurance, and that emergency fund... all with out accumulating any debt! YAY! We feel so blessed that we found Dave Ramsey and were nudged into saving up! Now we're working on building that back up! If you haven't heard of him and The Total Money Makeover... what are you waiting for?!?! Now is the time! He ROCKS! (I purchased the mp3/audio book - let me know if you'd like to borrow).

Albertsons 12/3 - 12/9

I never got to see my add from yesterday's paper! My very obedient son put it in the recycling today (because I told him he couldn't look at the day's paper until the old one was put out) - and the recycle guy came and picked it up. Thank goodness for Pinching Your Pennies!

Here is the link to all the great deals. Have I told you how much I love their layout? 4-5 red stars means it's a pretty hot deal! Just scanning through this, I know I'm going to go pick up a bunch of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Then I'm going to cook them all in the crock pot and then freeze them for later use.

Great Proctor & Gamble promotion going: Purchase $20 on the selected items, and receive $5 off your next purchase, plus 5 Free Redbox Rentals! Cool! I've been stocking up on diapers lately. But I can't resist the great deal on the Pampers. You can never have too many diapers. Plus, I've decided that cheap store brand ones stink, and I'll only buy Pampers, Huggies, or the Kirkland brand (Costco), which are great ones I think.

By the way, be sure to read the forums to see what others are doing with this sale!

Free Razors

One of the reason's I got into couponing is because I hate paying for razors. I think they are way to expensive. Well my Uncle "Cou Pon" (that is the code name he used when ever he orders free stuff) told me that he gets free razors all the time. So today I am sharing the free razor love.

Rite Aid
Gillette Fusion or Fusion Power Razor: $9.00
There is a $5.00 SCR (Single Check Rebate)
Use $4.00 off MC from 11/30 P&G insert

Schick© Quattro© Titanium Trimmer

More Free Music

Did you download the music from Oprah? I did. Well if you want more Christmas music here is your chance.
Amazon is having a “25 Days of Free” promotion and is unveiling a new holiday song through December 25 that can be downloaded for free as an mp3 file.
