Splenda has several coupons at
Last night I used the $3.50 coupon and the $.55 target coupon( to save $4.05 on an equal to 5 pound bag of Splenda and 250 count packs Total cost=$9.93

Also if you combine the smaller coupon offers at Walgreens they will save $ as well.

Target has neosporin on clearance sale for $2.80-$1.00-$1.80
Target also has several great clearance racks- I purchased strawberry large marshmallows for under a buck.
Gum was on sale for under $.80
Canned peaches were just over a $1.00 for name brands- if you could combine it with a coupon it would be a great deal. I did not have a coupon in my stash.

The Pantine 2 in 1 was $3.22 would be less with a coupon.
The market pantry granola bars are on sale for $1.75-target register coupon =$1.25 each.

I also keep my register coupons. They print out when I use my target red card. I am also able to choose a school to donate my rewards in support of the school.

Laundry Detergent

Thank you Tracy for the recipe!
I use this and so does my mom and best friend. We love it!
This is a modification of the recipe that I got from Queen of Clean's website (which is the same recipe of Mrs. Duggar of the 18+ kids fame). If you google homemade laundry detergent, you'll get TONS of recipes.
1/3 Bar Fels Naptha Soap, Grated
1/2 Cup Washing Soda
1/2 Cup Borax
2 Gallon Bucket
15-20 drops Sweet Orange Essential Oil
1. Mix Fels Naptha soap in a saucepan with 4 cups hot water, and heat on med. low until dissolved.
2. Stir in Washing Soda and Borax. Stir until thickened, and remove from heat.
3. Add 6 cups Hot Water to 2 Gallon Bucket. Add soap mixture, and mix well.
4. Fill bucket with hot water, and mix well. Add the essential oil drops.
5. Set aside for 24 hours, or until mixture thickens.

Use 1/2 cup of mixture per load.It takes me less than 30 minutes to make up a batch and I love love love it. I think it cleans just as well as Tide and better than any other store bought brand. Less plastic and chemicals in the environment and on my families clothes. And I seriously doubt it costs more than a penny per load, compared with how expensive and artificial Tide is. Seriously, even if we had lots of $$, I would still make it myself. It's too easy and beneficial to not do it, in my opinion. :)

REMEMBER: --Baking Soda and Washing Soda are NOT the same thing. You can use Baking Soda, but you will not get near the same results.-- You can get the ingredients at your grocery store(IGA). I did end up buying the Fels-Naptha Soap at ACE Hardware stores. I found Borax at IGA and Target. Organic essential oils can be found in various price ranges from $3.50-$10.00 at Ozark Naural Foods.

Target Deals 4/13

Target had a few deals today!
Cherry Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper -$.75 for a 2 liter bottle

I think Target puts discounts out on either Thursday night or Friday morning. I'm going to check on confirmation of this. Last week I went in on Friday and found several items on 75% off and on Thursday during the day they were only 50% off!

Also all of the Easter goodies are 50% off!

Later in the day, I plan to post a list of laundry detergent essentials which will save you $(money)!

I also wanted to share some of my shopping secrets. I purchase items on sale in addition to purchasing items from salvage dealers. My parents and I were in the salvage business for over 5 years! The items usually have minor damage and the savings for the consumer is substantial. When I was a teenager my parents paid $.25 for my hairspray! I do have a point. OOps in Tonitown is one of the best salvage places I have found. They are reasonable and sometimes you can find great deals. Also, A to Z in Rudy on 540 toward Alma also has great finds. I know the White family makes it a family business and are really great people.

Just the other day I was at OOps and found a dirt devil kone vac for $27. They were all maroon in color but if you don't mind a redish color it's a great deal. These retail for $49 at Target.

The Kashi cereal was under $2 and still in date. They had cases of this cereal.

They purchase candels from Hannah's so if you need a few candles to give as gifts at bargain prices your in luck.

I also have purchased organic crackers for $1 and they were $3 at Harps.
