Make Me Wanna Say....Oh My Gosh!!!

Happy Monday ya'll.
I hope everyone's weekend was better than great!
Mine was super frugalicious!
To start things off...I visited my mailbox. You may ask what's the big deal. Well I only check my mail once a week-usually on Thursday's-and it looked like this this week

...a hot a$$ mess!!!

But it was filled with all sorts of goodies

like these:
Mailbox Monday #2
-2 samples of Miracle Whip
-2 Breathe Right samples
-1 sample of Maggi Chicken Flavored Pasta Soup Mix (yum-can't wait to try it)
-1 John Frieda Haircare sample
-1 box of Kleenex
-1 sample of Maybelinne 'Fit Me' Foundation
-1 sample of Nexxus Pro Mend Haircare Product
-1 Declaration of Independence/Constitution (pocket version)
-Jet Magazine (March 21/28 2011 issue)
-Family Circle Magazine (April 2011 issue)
-1 paper sample
-1 Valspar paint kit sample (get yours here)

I'm gonna link up with Debra over here to share my Mailbox Monday goodies.

Did you get any free stuff in your mailbox today?

Before I deuce out for the day, I have to share my Savin' Maven Monday goods with you. I shopped at Target and Rite Aide this week using Target web coupons and coupons from newspaper inserts. Here's what my first trip looked like:

Savin' Maven Monday #3
-2 Lysol Disinfecting Wipes
-1 Glade Carpet Freshener (even though I don't have a bit of carpet)
-5 panty liners (Stayfree and Carefree-both on clearance at Target)
-2 boxes of Renu contact solution
-1 Airwick I-motion air freshener
-1 pack of Summer's Eve Cleansing wipes
-3 boxes of Nature Valley Granola Bars
-1 bag of Halls cough drops
-2 Kit Kat bars
-4 Nutrinail polishes
-1 pack of Welch's fruit snacks
-1 pack of Orbit gum
-3 tubes of Wet n Wild lip balm

all for a grand total of  $73.06
my total out of pocket expenses were $11.76
for a grand total savings of $61.84

Oh yes, I added a new location onto my shopper's list....

Wait for it....

Harris Teeter

yep, senora thriftarita went there!! (you know there has to be a catch, because y'all know damn well Harris Teeter's prices are through the roof) I believe that I have shopped there once before about 6 years ago and vowed to never go back because of their outrageous prices. Come to find out they were having a mega double saving event where they were doubling coupons up to $1.98 in value so if I had a coupon that took $1.50 off of a single item it would double up to $3.00.  I figured that this would be one heck of a deal so I gathered all of my 'pons and went HAM in there. I had to take 2 seperate pics but here's my stuff:

Savin' Maven Monday #3

Savin' Maven Monday #3

-2 boxes of Ritz Munchies
-2 boxes of Yakisoba Noodles
-3 bags of Steamfresh Veggies
-1 bottle of Kikoman Soy Sauce
-2 cans of Pillsbury Cresent rolls
-2 boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal
-3 boxes of Totinos pizza
-1 box of Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage dogs
-1 4pack of Danimals yougurt
-1 Dawn dish detergent
-2 Glade oil air freshener plug ins
-6 Renuzit air fresheners
-2 boxes of Puffs tissue
-2 cans of Lysol Neutra air
-2 Lysol toilet bowl cleaners
-1 Renuzit odor air freshener

for a grand total of $106.58
my total out of pocket expenses were $31.11
for a grand total savings of $75.47

Whew...I tell ya if you don't have a butt load of patience, you will never succeed at couponing because I spent alot of time in these stores. I also forgot to mention that I got $85 worth of restaurant gift certificates for 7 DOLLARS through a deal that was offering (sorry, the deal ended on Sunday before I posted this). I also scored 5 Blockbuster Express movie rentals for $2 through You can go here to and enter your city to see if they are still offering this deal. 

So all in all this week, I spent a total of $51.87 for $269.64 worth of merchandise. I'm fancy, huh!?

What do y'all think?
I loves feedback.
Feel free to leave any questions, comments, or concerns for me.
