From Amazon to New Moon

Most of you know that I just saw New Moon last week and I have to say that the soundtrack was really great. I wanted to download it on iTunes, but it is not at the top of my $$ priority right now. So, a fellow blogger sent out a tweet about free MP3 downloads from Amazon today. So, I gave it a try. First you need to login to your Amazon account (or create one if you don't have one yet) then click here and enter the code MP34FREE. If you are logged in, it automatically adds $3 into your account so that you can download songs. Thinking this could be too good to be true and that they would only let me select certain songs I thought I'd give the New Moon soundtrack a try. IT WORKED! They only have three songs available for download (I know...meant to be!), so I snagged them up and now I am listening to them. Yay! One of the songs is even a Death Cab song (double smile).

This promotion ends on the 30th of November, so get your songs soon!

Thank you, Carrie, for posting this great Amazon deal!

Method Coupon

I'm out of "Good For Wood" made by Method and I love most of their cleaning products (their window cleaner smells yummy), but "green" products can be so pricey. Great news though! Go here to print a $1 off coupon. FYI - unless you find these on sale (which they are not on sale often), I have found that Target has some of the best prices on these products. Sometimes up to $1 less than other stores.

Happy "GREEN" cleaning!

P.S. If you have trouble opening coupon go here and click on the picture with the fortune cookie.

My Saving Obsession Passed On To You...

So, I've finally given up trying to save money on groceries on my own and I've given myself over to the pros. Most of the "pros" are moms just like me...trying to make it in this tough economy. So what I learn from them, I will now pass on to you.

The first thing I did was sign up for my free four week trial of (thank you, Sharon). Now I really don't like paying for a service but it is very inexpensive when you sit down and look at the numbers. I pay $10 a month for the Safeway "list". Which works out to be about $2.50 a week in a four week month and $2 in a five week month. I save a whole lot more than that just using the list, because they do a lot of the work for me. Also, I have not stopped there - I have a lot of printed coupons from the internet and manufacturer sites, so I have those organized and I check to see if I can "one up" some of the coupons listed on the Grocery Game. By doing just this - I paid $58 for $147 worth of groceries this last Saturday. I'm liking those numbers.

Next, I've started subscribing to blogs that share saving secrets and up to date deals found by moms an other consumers. So here are some of the deals I have for this week.


Buy 3 Glade Sprays at $0.99 after the in-ad coupon
Use $0.75/2 coupon from the 11/1 SmartSource insert
Stack with the $1/2 from Walgreens November Coupon Booklet
Pay $0.72 plus tax after coupons ($0.24 each)

Then go to SC Johnson to get you $5 rebate form for purchasing three Glade products (you can do this up to 3 times). (Thank you Money Saving Mom)

**Learning moment - I didn't read this properly and forgot my Smart Source coupon...ooops! So, I paid a total of $1.74 including tax. Still not a bad deal, especially when you consider the rebate, but I was a little angry with myself. I have a couple more Walgreens ads here and I'm going to go do this one more time WITH my SS coupon and hopefully I will get great results again!

Target Deals:

Apples -$1/lb (could vary by store)
Use $1/2 lbs here
Final Price = $0.50/lb when you buy 2 lbs

***I purchased 3 pound bag for 1.99 and a 2 pound bag for 1.99 (after 1 coupon for each bag, I paid $.50 a pound for one and $.33 a pound for the other.***
