Yay for Gogo's Crazy Bones!

I received my Gogo's Crazy Bones Bonanza party pack today! It's FULL of Crazy Bones! I really didn't know what they were, but my 7-year-old apparently knows all about them. We sent out invitations for the big day but I'm not sure if my kiddos can hold off any longer! They're dying to tear open that package! LOL!!

If you're wondering what in the world Crazy Bones are...

Gogo's are small colorful characters that come in hundreds of colors and designs, each one with a unique name, design, personality and special ability. Kids of all ages have fun collecting, trading and playing with Gogo's Crazy Bones!

Gogo's were inspired by games from ancient Greece where children played by bouncing and throwing sheep knuckle bones. Today’s Gogo’s are reminiscent of old school favorites such as marbles and jacks, with a modern twist! Each Gogo has a unique number for collecting and designed so you can hold and throw with one finger.

Each Gogo's Series has about 80 different Gogo's in five different colors, some of which are rarer than others, each with a unique face and name. You can find Series 1 – The Originals, in stores now. Series 2 – The Evolution Series, will hit stores near you in May 2011 and Series 3 – Gogo’s Explorer Series will arrive in August 2011!

Sounds fun!!

Publix IS a pleasure!!

Their slogan has always been my favorite because it's so true! It is such a pleasure shopping there. Even my husband noted how he forgot how nice Publix is as he strolled in one morning for a breakfast donut pick-up during our Florida getaway. Although I love what Kroger has to offer, I'd still prefer a Publix any day!!

I just picked up my free Trident Gum using my Manufacturer and Publix BOGO coupons!

It's Spring Break Time!

Spring Break to me means no cooking, no cleaning, no early mornings....basically the complete opposite of the everyday hustle and bustle of my life! Ahhh, I'm enjoying it already! The hubs and I are taking the kiddos on a 10 day break to the Sunshine State! Besides the fact that we'll be enjoying the company of great friends, family, our favorite places to dine, and a trip to the Magical of the best features of our vacation is that it's fully funded with coupon savings! Such an awesome feeling!!

Happy Saving! See ya in April!

Walgreens MONEYMAKER!!!!

I love finding good deals at Wags because honestly, I really hate shopping there unless it's worth my time!

Almay Makeup 30% off
Buy any 1 and receive $5 RR
- $2/1 Manufacturer Coupon 3/6 SS
- $2/1 Walgreens Beauty Book Coupon

Now, most people I saw today were purchasing the $5.99 sale products.... BUT not me!
I pulled the products that retailed at $7.49-$7.99 because after the 30% discount they are LESS
than $5.99 sale price! After coupons most of my items were just $1.24 ... and giving $5 back!

I purchased Liners, Concealer, Shadow (smokey eye, in new package $7.49), Mascara! I spent $10 OOP (I also purchased a few other RR items to use the RRs I already had) but I walked out with $56 in RRs!! Not too shabby!! :)

This morning I stopped by my local Kroger to get some Pedigree canned dog food! It's on Mega sale right now .49/ea. wyb 10 .... and since the stores had been out of stock all week I was excited to finally get a large amount!

So, I picked up 40 cans.

My total after coupons was $0.98

And to my surprise I received three $2 OYNO cats!! That's a $5.02 MM!!

I have no details on this cat, so I can't tell you what triggered it or how long it's printing!
