Clairol replacement FPC

Hello!
Remember awhile back where Clairol was giving away free hair colour coupons on facebook?
Remember when they sent them out, but they sent Canadians, the American coupon which we couldn't use here in Canada? lol
Well today I FINALLY got my replacement coupon that's valid in Canada!
I'm not actually going to use it because I get my hair professionally done, so it's going to be off to another person!
Here's a pic for everyone interested.

My March 31st expiries.... SIGH!

Okay so I know its only March 30th but I have no plans to go shopping between now and tomorrow so I decided to empty my coupon binder of all the march 31st expiries!
SIGH theres so many going to waste... I put alot on the shelves next to products but I still ended up with so many extras!




Well the new brandsaver comes out this week so I'll be freshly stocked up on new coupons :)

Cheap Gingerale + Smartsource!

Hey everyone!
So ive decided Im going to try and use up as MANY of the march 31st expiries that I have but at the same time save money.
Any I wont use, im RAOKing on the shelves!

SDM has pepsi/coke products 6 x 710 ml packs on sale for 2/$5
So I got:

2 x schwepps gingerale $2.50 each - (2) $1 off coupon = $3 or $1.50 each
BUT I noticed when I got home that the cashier took of $3 of coupons instead of $2, so I only paid $2 for both! or $1 each! wow
That's an amazing deal, I hope the cashier doesn't get in too much trouble but there's not much I can do now.

I also aquired 2 smartsources coupon inserts!
I'm happy because they have BOGO mars products in them. yay.
I can't tell you how excited I am for the brandsaver insert next week :D

Here's a picture list of all the coupons:

What did you get in the mail today?

Hello everyone!
I've always LOVED to check the mail, it was my favourite thing to do ever since I was a child. My mom would humor me and let me check the mail all the time even though she knew 99% of the time the mail wasn't for me. (thanks mom :P)
So its natural that since i've moved out on my own, my favourite thing to do each day is CHECK THE MAIL! hehe
Only now the mail is almost always for me and its almost always freebies and coupons!
So today I got the mail and got one of my save.ca orders.
Did you know you can order coupons off of Save.ca? They usually have a wide selection and are mailed very quickly.
They are just one of the online couponing sites where you order coupons.
There's also
Brandsaver
Websaver

Mr.Christie Cookies!!!

So today we decided to hit up the Mr.Christie factory here in Etobicoke because they sell cookies at discounted prices.
We got a few boxes of different cookies all waaay cheaper than grocery stores.
The best deal we got was 3.25kg of chips ahoy cookies for $6.75 including tax!!
Im not sure how much it would have cost for this amount of cookies from a grocery store but im guessing more like $15 +!

Free Limes!

Hey everyone, thought I'd post about a cool freebie I got today.
While passing through union station in toronto they had reps from corona handing out free limes!
Kinda weird freebie but a freebie nontheless!!

Free stouffers coupons + $10 walmart GC

Have you ever heard of the stouffers rewards program?
Basically what you do is , collect 12 pins off of the inside of participating stouffers or lean cuisine products. In return you receive $15 worth of FREE stouffers products and a $10 Gift card to ANY participating store. (which you pick upon registration)
Once you have all your pins you can enter them on the stouffers rewards website
Stouffers Rewards

They then send you a confirmation email and within 4-6 weeks you recieve your reward! Which is exactly what I got in the mail today!

You're allowed to enter the rewards program twice within the rewards period.
There are usually 3 reward periods per year.

What if you don't eat stouffers products regularily enough to gather enough pins?
You could always ask family members for their empty boxes or you could do what I like to call, ''Treasure Hunting''.
Go for recycle bin walks on garbage day, your almost guaranteed to find stouffers boxes poking out of people recycle bins.

I collected 12 pins without purchasing any.
I got some from my mom, some from recycle bin walks, and some from the promo lean cuisine had on facebook when they offered the free lean cuisine product coupon.

So for $0 I got $25 worth of free stuff. =)

Mcdonalds Coupon Booklet!

First off, I LOVE mcdonalds lol
I know it's fast food and its gross yadda yadda but you can't tell me you don't love it!
Anyway, I received the newest coupon booklet in the mail yesterday and thought Id post it for everyone who hasn't received it yet.
Anyone whos in western canada can go to
Mcdonalds Deals
where you can print these coupons! Lucky!

These coupons are valid March 7th 2011- April 17th 2011
My favourite is the B1G1 Free mcflurry which is an awesome deal.
Next favourite is the One can dine for $4.49






Free Vaseline!~

So today is one of those, dark days, I say dark days because it's a day where I couldn't find anything to make a good deal, that I didnt need!
I Could have got more free shaving cream but I already have 4 cans.
I'm not greedy..
This was the 3rd walmart where the entire shelf of stayfree was cleared....
*sigh* looks like im going stayfree-less lol

I did manage to get something free today =)
I got 1 325ml bottle of vaseline intensive rescue hand cream free!
Vaseline on facebook had a promo running a while back to receive a fpc from save.ca for free vaseline. I decided to cash mine in and voila, free handcream!




Now on to my rant

*rant*
On a forum I visit frequently, a poster was bragging about getting 60 boxes of ziplocs for free when WM had them on 2/$4 using a save $4 wub 2 PRINTABLE coupons.
They used 30 printed internet coupons. That's ridiculous, when people ABUSE coupons like that it makes it harder for the rest of us to use them.
I got turned away because I had 2 printable coupons....
Companies will stop offering such great coupons if people are abusing them.
So please everybody, be kind and fair when using coupons :)

Cross-Border Cherry Coke!!!

First off I think I should express how much I LOOOOOOOOVE Cherry Coke!
When I was a kid I used to buy it all the time whenever I had money. Dill Pickle chips and cherry coke... MMMMMM
A few years later cherry coke got discontinued and I guess I never really noticed it until I wanted one.
Well after some research it turns out that coke discontinued selling cherry coke in canada because apparently it's not as well liked as in the states and wasn't making enough revenue.

So when I went on vacation to Las Vegas 2 years ago I was determined to find Cherry Coke... the first store we came to I went in and it was like a magnet drew me to the chery coke. I grabbed a bottle and once it was paid for I ripped off the cap and took a huge sip.... I cant even explain how good it tasted... AMAZING.
On my Vacay I drank a lot of cherry coke but since we had carry on luggage I couldnt take any home and no there wasnt any cherry coke in the airports :(

Fast Forward a month or so BF and I head to buffalo to buy some cherry coke, we get a few cases but they are gone within 2 months. :(
The next time I had cherry coke was our last vacation in sept to Los Angeles, where I drank alot of it :D and was surprised to find that subway had fountain cherry coke!

So now 5 months later we had to go to buffalo to pick up someone from the airport and we HAD to stop in walmart to get Cherry coke and we even got a deal on it!

5 cases of 12 cans x 2.98 + 0.40(bottling fee because its bottled in buffalo)= $3.38 each using a currency calculator apparently $3.38 american = $3.29 canadian.
So 5 12pk cases of cherry coke $3.29= $16.45
Which is amazing since 12pk pop here costs anywhere from 4.99 to 6.99 depending where you go.
Im just happy I have my cherry coke :)




*Note * Apparently there are a few stores in Toronto that get cherry coke imported from buffalo so im on a mission to find it and be rest assured that I can get my fix if I really need it =P
