Charity Coupon Class

I have extended the deadline to bid to Wednesday, September 9th. Please read the dates changes below.

I have been out of the loop with blogging since starting my new job. However, I felt impressed to hold a coupon class in memory of Rachel Allen.

The Allen family's five year old daughter Rachel drown in a pool on Saturday, Aug. 22, 2009. She was on life support for several days and returned to Heavenly Father in the early morning hours of Tues. Aug, 25.

In a loving final tribute to their daughter the Allen's chose to donate Rachel's organs which will help several other families.

An online auction site has been set up to assist the family with funeral and other related costs.

When--Saturday, Sept. 12th
Time--10:00 am
Where--My home in Queen Creek (Castlegate Community)
What--Learn about how to:
  • Cut your grocery bill in at least half
  • Maximize the benefits of using coupons
  • Get stuff for FREE
  • Work on building your food storage/year supply
  • Utilize FREE resources
  • Organizing coupons
In my classes, I teach how to utilize free resources. There are no strings attached. I give the tools to get you started on saving money. There will also be door prizes!

If you would like to particpate, please leave a comment on my blog with your e-mail address and how much you would like to donate (minimum donation of $10 please). The class is limited to either the first 10 people to respond, or the 10 highest bidders. The deadline for this auction is Wednesday, Sept. 9th.

High bidders will be contacted by e-mail on Thursday, Sept. 10th, and will then need to pay their bids through Paypal on the Rachel Allen Memorial Fund site no later than Friday, Sept. 11th. If you are a high bidder selected to participate in the class, directions to my home will be sent to you.

This is a great way to donate to a good cause and learn to save thousands of dollars every year on your grocery bill!

100% of the proceeds will go to the family.

If there is a large response to this class, I will consider adding another date.

Cheap Razors/Body Wash at Target

Through Saturday, Target has a gift card deal on Gillette products.

Buy 1 Gillette Fusion Razor at $7.99.
Buy 1 Gillette Body Wash at $3.49.
Use a $4/1 razor q and a $1/1 body wash q from 6/7 P&G.

You will pay $6.48 plus tax OOP, but then receive a $5 gift card. That's like paying $1.48 for both!

You can also roll your gift card on each transaction to lower OOP, so lather, rinse, repeat.

Another Deal: 

A-1 Steak Sauce is $2.09 for a 5 oz. bottle. Use the $2/1 coupon from 6/14 to get these for $.09 each.

Fry's: 6/24-6/30

Fry's is having their Daytona 500 Promo this week. Save $3 when you buy 10 products, mix and match. There is no limit on rewards per transaction, just make sure you buy in quantities of 10. All prices assume the $3 reward.

Here are my favorites:

Kraft BBQ Sauce: $.69
Use: $.50/1 from 6/14 SS
Final: FREE

Purex Detergent: $1.99
Use: $.35/1 from 6/14 SS
Final: $1.29

Ragu Pasta Sauce: $1.29
Use: $.60/1 from 5/17 RP (check to match variety on coupon)
Final: $.29

Milk is also on sale $1.39/ gallon.

Some stores are tripling and quadrupling coupons this week. That would make some of the deals even sweeter, like the Purex.

Check BargainMoms for a complete Fry's list. Stretching a Buck also has some match-ups with e-coupons and info on Catalina deals. Some of the prices vary because it is a different region.

Shelf Reliance Giveaway

Shelf Reliance currently has a giveaway for a free Harvest 72" Food Rotation System. The giveaway ends this Friday, the 26th. You can view all the details here. They will have a giveaway every two weeks for various products.
