2 days left - $5 off your next grocery purchase at Kmart when you buy $15 select products!

If you haven't gotten in on this deal yet, you have through July 6th. We go through a lot of paper towels, so this works well for me. I didn't use any of my points on the deal because it says the total must be $15 after discounts.

My scenerio:

Bought (1) Kleenex multi-pack $5.49
Paid $16.47 + tax
Received a $5 off my next grocery purchase of $5 or more coupon (on register receipt)

Check out Rite Aid's clearance - may vary by store - I got some 75% off snacks/nut yesterday!

Hurry on over to your local Rite Aid before all the good stuff is gone! There were lots of nuts and snacks on clearance at our local Rite Aid.

 I bought 3 cans of their brand "Nut Energy Mix" for 75% off and 2 jars of Macadamian nuts for 75% off! They had a lot left - so check it out before it's gone!  YMMV

FREE Atkins starter kit and BOGO coupon. Still available.

My husband and I aren't exactly following Atkins, but we are trying to eat low carb healthy options. He takes an Atkins bar in his lunch daily. His favorite is the brownie bars. He usually take an Atkins shake in his lunch too. These are just easy and quick for him to have on the go.

We also buy the Mission Carb Tortillas or the Joseph's Reduced Carb/Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Pita Bread to replace our bread. I've lost weight this way before, but unfortunately, over the winter I put it back on. So, I'm back at it.

Anyway, if you are low carbing, you might want to consider getting this kit. Let us know what you think of their products.

My husband bought me a composter, plus my potting mix blend.

If you know me at all, you know that I love to grow things - mostly food . I have a very small garden that I would like to expand and I have potted vegetables on my back porch. The other day, there was a groundhog on my porch! I had to buy a baby gate for the top of the steps to hopefully deter it in the future.

Anyway, I try to keep chemicals out of my yard and use natural products and organic garden compost can be quite expensive, so I have been looking at composting bins.  My husband actually surprised me by buying it for me.  I went out on the porch and there it was ... but he said that I have to put it together.  Hopefully we can get it put together this weekend.

This is the first year that I actually mixed my own potting soil and my first year for planting potatoes. My potatoes seem pretty happy with the soil mix! They are growing quite well.

Here is the one he bought me:

Yimby Tumbling Composter

We have a lot of critters in our yard, so we didn't want something on the ground, so I think this one will be perfect.

Back to the potting mix. I did a lot of reasearch and came up with my own mix.  I mixed it in a 32 gallon plastic tote container.
Compressed Coconut Coir Brick, 10 Pound (lb)-Green Texan Organic Farms - I used 1/2 of it per batch.
Espoma PR1 1 Cubic Foot Organic Perlite - I used 1/2 of this bag per batch.
Green Texan Organic Farms Worm Castings, 10 Pounds (10 Lb) - I used 1/2 of this bag per batch.
Grow Pro Azomite Micronized Organic Trace Rock Dust Natural Mineral Soluble Powder Fertilizer (5 pounds) - I used about 1 cup per batch.
Miracle-Gro 100131 M Nature's Care Organic and Natural Vegetable Fruit and Flower Food - I used about 1 cup per batch.
I also used some organic compost that I bought locally.

I ran out of the vegetable food fertilizer and used organic bonemeal and bloodmeal in it's place in a few of the batches that I made.  I need to put in a new order for the vegetable food fertilizer.

Price matching at Walmart - revisited.

The past couple times that I have been to Walmart, I was told that I needed to bring the ad with me next time if I want to price-match. This is not true according to Walmart - as they responded to my question on Facebook. Although, it would probably make it easier on the cashier and less wait for you. If you don't have it with you, they have to verify any price that is more than 25% off and require a supervisor if the item is more than 50% off Walmart's price.


If you are price-matching, you should be patient about this as the cashiers are just doing their job. The cashier may have to ask the service desk for the sale ads, as most stores have a copy of the local ads. It may seem a little inconvenient to you, but from what I have heard, there were scammers making up their own prices ... I would guess that is what led to this change in policy.

Tampax radiant 3-count boxes - 5¢ for 5 boxes at Dollar General!

As I posted earlier this week, Dollar General is running a special for $5 off 5 select P&G products. One of the items included is "any" Tampax. If you can find the 3 count boxes ($1 aisle) in your local Dollar General store, they will be almost free. I don't quite understand the way their computers work, but for some reason it only takes 99¢ off each one, so you end up paying 5¢ for 5.

$5 at $1 each = $5 total.
Instant savings takes 99¢ off each one making them a penny.
You have to buy in multiples of 5 for this to work.

The $1 Infinity pads are NOT working for this deal though. Here is the list of items from the Dollar General website. Combine coupons for even a better deal! Discount ends on Sunday, 7/5.
