Baby Wipes Deal

Hot Coupon World has a coupon for up & up baby wipes (found at Target) - $1 off. The wipes cost $1.54 so after the coupon it is only $.54 for a container of baby wipes. I also found up & up flushable wipes on clearance for $.97. After the coupon, they were FREE! Go here to the Target Coupon Generator. (This is a GREAT source for Target Store coupons) You can print as many as you want. You can use as many as your store will allow. (My store will usually take 6 at a time. Though sometimes they only say 1 or 2. Just depends who is ringing up your purchase.)

Halloween Candy

There are so many stores that are putting their Halloween candy on clearance. This is a GREAT time to stock up on your candy for next year. I have been doing this for years and have never had a problem with my candy going bad or chocolate turning gray. Here's what I do:

* Chocolate Candy - Place unopened bags in Ziploc freezer bags. Squeeze as much air out when sealing it. Place in the freezer and leave until you need it. When you are ready to use, take it out and use it. The chocolate is perfect and it taste great. When I first started freezing chocolate I didn't put in freezer bags...I just put the unopened chocolate bag in the freezer. The bag absorbed other smells and the chocolate didn't taste fresh. But, if you put them in freezer bags it keeps the chocolate fresh!

* Regular Candy - Take a look at the expiration date on the bags. I bought some yesterday and the expiration date on the bags was 11/2010 and 01/2011. That's after Halloween next it's good to go! I put the candy bags in freezer Ziploc bags, squeeze the air out and seal it. I store these in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. (the back part of my pantry) I've been doing this as well and the candy stays fresh. Just make sure you check out the expiration date.

Target finally has their candy on 50% off (not sure why they tried to start with 30% this year???). Hot Coupon World has the Target coupons and there are some candy coupons that expire on 11/7. Combine the coupons with the clearance candy and you can score some great deals! Get the coupons here.

Wii Games

If you have a Wii or are getting one for Christmas, this is great deal:

Target currently has a promotion on Wii games - Buy 2, Get 1 Free. It's for games priced $49.99 or less. Plus, there is a Target coupon - Buy 2 Wii games, get $10 off. You can find the coupon here. (The coupon is from Hot Coupon World...but you can also find the coupon in the Target Holiday Toy Book found in the toy section).

There are a couple of other bloggers that have bought 6 Wii games (priced at $14.99) and used 3 Target coupons. Their total out of pocket is $30 for 6 games. Not a bad deal! I went to Target yesterday to look at the games. I didn't see any $14.99 games but there were plenty of $19.99 games. So, if you are in the market for games or want to give some as Christmas presents, this is a great deal. Note: The coupon doesn't expire until 11/25/09 but the buy 2 get 1 free deal ends Saturday.

Grocery Ads

Have you received your new grocery ads this week?

Kroger is still have the Mega Event - purchase 10 select products (a huge amount to choose from...mix and match) and receive $5 off instantly. Just looking over the ad, the prices are really good. Add coupons and the prices are great!

Albertsons has an awesome coupon in their ad - Spend $100 get $10 off! This coupons is valid Friday 11/6 - Sunday 11/8. Plus, if you shop on Sunday and wear your Cowboy Jersey, you will get an additional 10% off! Albertsons also has some in-store coupons in the ad and some pretty good sale prices.

As the holidays approach, the grocery stores will really start competing with each other on sales. As your budget and space allows, the next couple of months can be a great time to stock up on basics. And don't forget, Target and Walmart will price match all ads (the actually price...not discounts or percent off).
