CVS Shopping Trip

I had to go to CVS yesterday to pick up my birth control pills and noticed that they had Secret deodorant on clearance for $2.74 (was $5.49 each)...well I just happened to have my BIG P&G coupon booklet with me and I used 2 $1 off any Secret coupons and scored both for $3.48. While I was there I also noticed that they had 2 CoverGirl Natureluxe silk foundations in the "Aspen" color marked down to $3.79 each (was $13.99 each). I KNEW I had some coupons for those as well, so when I went to get my haircut today I made sure I brought them with me! So after I got my hair cut I went in and they were still there so I gobbled them up! They were $3.79 each (was $13.99 each) and I used 2 $2 off any Natureluxe silk foundation coupons making my total $3.58 for 2!!! Here's the kicker though...this week they have $2 EXTRA CARE BUCKS when you buy any Natureluxe I got $4 back making them FREE + $0.47 moneymaker! Well needless to say I went back to the clearance section and grabbed 2 more Secret deodorants for $2.74 (was $5.49 each) and used my $4 ECB and paid only $1.50 for both!! Here are the final stats:

What is "Swagbucks"?

Ok, so I am sure that many of you spend countless hours a week online searching for freebies, coupons, great deals etc. Well, why not put those searches to use? Some of you I am sure have heard of Swagbucks, but don't fully understand what it is, so I am going to share it with you!

 Swagbucks has to be my FAVORITE ways to earn “FREE” gift cards towards places such as, Target and many more. By simply searching the web (like I already do with Google) I am rewarded with "Swagbucks" I can use to redeem things that I want! Swagbucks is SO easy to use and is free to join. And right now when you sign up you get 30 Swagbucks just for joining! With the evolution of the internet SO many of us are always on the internet at some point each day! So why use Google to search when you can use Swagbucks to both find what you are looking for AND be rewarded for it?

How Can I Earn Swagbucks?

Well, the easiest way to earn Swag Bucks is to download the toolbar. This toolbar will allow you to search online without having to go directly to The toolbar will also give you exclusive messages and provide special "Swagcodes". There is also the "Swidget" that you can see on my blog page that also allows you to see those special "Swagcodes". Swagcodes are also found in the Swagbucks blog and hidden when watching Swagbucks TV. You can also win daily Swagbucks by just using the toolbar, entering the daily polls and by completeing trusted surveys. You can also win Swagbucks by printing and redeeming coupons through their "coupon" section under EARN, for every coupon you print and redeem you can earn 10 Swagbucks! As much as I use coupons, this is one way that pays off BIG for me!!!

What Can I Redeem My Swagbucks For?

Once you accumulate enough Swagbucks, you can visit the Swagstore where you will find an endless array of items you can redeem your bucks for. Everything from kids stuff to sports items, dvd's and jewelery to my favorite $5 gift card! There is a little something for everyone!

Search, Earn, Redeem that is the concept of Swagbucks. So what are you waiting for? Go and score some FREE stuff for doing something you already do...sign up for Swagbucks today here:

I hope everyone had a fun filled Easter with their families yesterday! Kaylie woke us up at 5:30am and we didn't stop running around until 8pm last postings for me! After 2 family dinners, 2 egg hunts and a screaming baby....I was pooped! I appologize, I would really like to get things up and running much faster, but with a teething 4 month old and myself possibly having a scratched cornea... I have been on the slow side!! I hope to get things back on track starting tomorrow after I go to the eye doctor to see about my stay tuned!!!

Hello everyone and thank you SO much for stopping by!  So what has led me to create my own blog? Well, after watching the Tyra Show one day and learning about all of the FREE stuff that is out there! I was AMAZED and disappointed that I did not find out about that sooner! That very day I began to follow some wonderful bloggers! After many months of learning the ropes and scoring so many awesome freebies and sweet deals, I have decided to share them with both my friends in the USA and my fellow CANADIANS!! Of course there was the encouragment from many of my friends and wise words from one of the first bloggers I followed "Sweet Deals 4 Moms", so for that I thank you for pushing me the extra step to get the ball rolling! I really hope that I can help each and every one of you learn some great methods to saving the most $ possible, score some really great freebies and win big in contests and sweepstakes! If there is anything that you do not see on here that you think would be beneficial to us all, please let me know as I am open to any suggestions and feedback you may have! Thanks again for following me and I look forward to what this blog has in store for all of you!
