And THIS is why I read Money Saving Mom.

I found most of my deals at Money Saving Mom this week. I think that from this day forth I will only shop on Thursday mornings. It's amazing how empty the stores were! My local Lifetime Fitness has two parent's time out mornings and afternoons every week. That's 3 hours of childcare for only $5. I used it today and, due to the lack of other customers, was able to make it to every stop on my list in the allotted time: the post office, library, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, and Cub Foods! These are the deals I found:


Glade Sense and Spray- $8.29. After $4 Target mail coupon & $4 regular mail coupon- $0.29

Glade Classic Plug-Ins Warmer- $1.79. After freebie mail coupon- FREE

Quaker Deal- Buy 5 select products, get a $5 gift card.

  • 2 Quaker Maple & Brown Sugar Life Cereals- $2.50. After 2 $1 printables- $1.50 each
  • Quaker True Delights Granola Bars- $2.50. After $1 mail coupon- $1.50 (You can print some $1 coupons too with this link.)
  • Quaker Simple Harvest Granola Bars- $2.50. After $1 mail coupon- $1.50
  • Quaker Chewy Granola Bars- $2.00
All in all I spent $6.50, received a $5 gift card. Making each boxed item only $0.30!
