Bargain Noble!

Yep! You can remember the name easy because it's like the book store!
I am proud to present to you the newest savings blog on the internet!
I plan on keeping it pretty exclusive to the Richmond area, but many of the stores we have here are all over the USA, so it could really benefit a lot of people!
Come on over and check it out!

Recent "Finds"!

This is going to be a short but sweet post!
Right now at CVS, they have the Dove Skin Revitalizer on sale for $4. This is normally 12.99, so it's a GREAT deal. But, to make it that much sweeter, head on over to and print out the $3.75 off of the Dove Skin Revitalizer and you can get it for .25 cents!
For all you Richmonders, the CVS on Patterson has them in stock! The ones on Cox Rd. and Lauderdale are out, but should restock later this week!
Also, if you are looking for something to do with the kids, go penny searching within a 2 mile radius of Cici's pizza on Broad Street. They are running a very unique marketing campaign. They have placed special pennies on sidewalks and parking lots all up and down Broad street and if you find one, you can get a free buffet meal there!
We went searching on Saturday and found one on the sidewalk in the shopping center where Cici's Pizza is. That was the only one we found, though.
Don't bother looking there or the following places:
Buffalo Wild Wings Plaza
Big Lots plaza
The plaza beside Wawa (Booksamillion)
Play it Again Sports

There are a lot of other places they could be, but we searched high and low in the areas listed above.
The penny looks like this:
Have fun :)

Remember yesterday I posted on here that in my "All You" magazine, I read that handy little tip about if a store has a buy one get one free sale on an item and you have a buy one get one free coupon, you get BOTH items for free?
Well, today is the perfect day to take advantage of that situation!
Go to and print out their buy one get one free coupon on Purex!
Then, go to CVS (stat!) because they are having a sale on Purex this week at Buy one, Get one free!!
Note: if it doesn't show up on using your own zip code, use zip code 43123

Thanks for the tip Hip2Save !

Well, this week isn't too bad considering there were no coupons in this past Sunday's paper!

I'll start with Ukrops. Of course, there is the thrift section! I was able to grab some low fat Brie cheese there today for only $4!
Also, they have their Kellogg's cereals 3/$5. That in itself is not a bad deal, but to make it even sweeter, first head on over to Food Lion and go in their cereal isle and grab 3 of their $1.00 off any Kellogg's cereal. Then, go to Ukrops and you can get the cereals at 3/$2!!!
Kroger: Right Store, Right Price!
Also, you know the Kellogg cereal that is sold individually in the little bowl and all you have to do is add milk? Well, those are on sale this week at Kroger for only $1. Grab some more of those coupons and go "Krogering"!

For Walgreens, you are going to want to go there asap! All of their Easter candy is on sale for 50% off. This is perfect for their easysaver rebate of $5 from Hershey's. If you are lucky enough to grab some of the Hershey kisses, they are only $1.25 each. Buy 4 of them to total $5 and you will have 4 free bags of Hershey kisses after you submit your rebate. They didn't have any Kisses at my Walgreens, so I grabbed 4 bags of Hershey's Bliss chocolates. They were $2 each, but I used my $1.50 off of three bags of Hershey's chocolates, so at the end of the day, I only paid .38 cents per bag of Bliss chocolates. Not free, but not bad!
If you have the $1.50 coupon and you can get 4 bags of Kisses, you could turn this deal into a moneymaker and be in the green $1.50!

If you do not currently subscribe to the All You magazine, I urge you to do so! It is SO worth the money!
I just read in there this little tidbit of information:
If you have a buy one, get one free coupon and the store has the same item on sale buy one get one free, you will get BOTH items for free!!! I never knew that! This magazine is choc-full-of handy bits of information in addition to the loads and loads of coupons and recipes in there!!! I just signed up online last week to subscribe and I already got my first magazine in the mail this week! Talk about fast! Most magazines say your first issue will arrive in 6-8 weeks!

For today only, drive over to Maggie Moo's and get your free scoop of ice cream in "celebration" of tax day!

Although this isn't a "freebie tip", I thought I'd share my experience with Cracker Barrell (the one off of Mayland Drive)recently. We went there to eat about 2 weeks ago and had a less than pleasant experience. Instead of just "sucking it up" and saying "I'll never go there again", I decided to submit my restaurant experience to them via there feedback form online. Next thing I know, in today's mail is a gift certificate to Cracker Barrel for 4 FREE ENTREES! No price limit!
My point is that if you eat out somewhere and have a bad experience, share it with their corporate office. You never know what they might give you to make up for it.

What have I been up to?

I am REALLY enjoying my new hobby, couponing!
This is not your momma's couponing, either! I LOVE saving money! There's something just so satisfying knowing that you are getting something cheaper (or even free) when someone else is paying full price! Is that so wrong?? I don't think so ;)
So, every week, I am going to try to have at least ONE post dedicated to the best deals and steals in Richmond and on the internet. Of course, if I find something too hard to resist, I'll post it right away!
So, what's on the deal menu today?

Hurry, hurry, hurry! These won't last long!
I already have 5 boxes, so I'm done, but you can still go to Food Lion and get Frosted Flakes Grab 'n go for F-R-E-E!
How? Just go to the cereal isle and pull a $1 off any Kellogg's cereal coupon off of the little coupon dispenser and the Frosted Flakes Grab-n-Go boxes are on sale for only .99 cents! They are actually paying YOU a penny to take them! Not kidding! Like I said, I've already got 5 boxes, so my daughter is going to have these babies in her lunch for a very long time! I don't think there is a limit on how many you can get, but I only got one or two at a time.

Also, did you know at UKROPS, they have a "thrift" section? It only happens once every day from 7am-9am. You go to the back of the store in the meat section and they have trays and trays of things that will expire either that day or the next and they are 33 percent off! I have gotten cupcakes, NICE steak filets, italian sausage w/peppers and onions, veggie trays....oh, the list goes on! Better to get their right at 7am to get the best picks!

At KROGER, well...not the actual store, but online, if you "design" a bag online, they will give you a FREE tote bag! Just click here to get started!

Well, that is it for now, but I look forward to posting more great deals!
