I Feel the Earth Move Under my Feet

As I'm sure you've heard, there was a small earthquake yesterday in Virginia that tremored its way all the way up the East Coast. I've never experienced an earthquake before and it was surreal. I looked up at my bulletin board and thought to myself - "woah, I think that's moving. I must be more tired than I realized!" hahaha

CVS - I read on HCW that certain Conair straighteners were still producing EB's so I figured it couldn't hurt to see if I could find some. I lucked out and found a store that had three! I wish I could find a picture of the box to show you, but these are what the straighteners look like. I found pink and green, but I've read there are blue ones too.

  • Conair Infiniti i series 3/4 inch ceramic straightener (model CS65P 0 74108 21026 5 - pink or model CS65G 0 74108 21026 5 - green) - clearanced to $9.12 (from $36.49), got back $5 EB (WYB Conair appliance, monthly deal, limit 2) = $4.12 each
I used the EB's from this one to buy a second and then got a third on a separate card.

DEAD DEAL - man, that went fast! As of this morning (8/24) the RR's are no longer printing. Then I headed over to Walgreens to try a Dove deal I read about. It worked perfectly! I can't guarantee this deal will last all week, so get in while the gettins good!

  • 3 Dove Beauty Bars (3.15 oz) $0.99 each with in-circular coupon, got back $6 RR (WYB 3) = $3.03 profit
  • 4 Keebler Cookies (2 soft batch and 2 fudge stripe) $10.76*, used two $1 off 2 coupons (8/7 RP) and got back $5 RR (WYB $10 of select items) = $3.76 or $0.94 each *The cookies were supposed to ring up four for $10 (or $2.99 when you buy just one). The fudge stripe cookies rang up $2.39 each. I realized this after I'd left the store and didn't feel like going back in for $0.80. Watch the register carefully if you buy these!
  • Total was $11.94
Then at another store, I used the RR from the Keebler stuff towards more Dove

  • 3 Dove Beauty Bars (3.15 oz) $0.99 each with in-circular coupon, got back $6 RR (WYB 3) = $3.03 profit
  • Candle - clearanced to $2.99
  • Used $5 RR, total was $1.38
I've seen a lot of clearanced candles at Walgreens lately but the prices haven't been right. The one I picked up is pretty big and smells great. The profit from the Dove made it free anyway. My favorite price!
