All manufacture coupons under a $1 will be rounded up to $1. For example, 30¢, 50¢, and 75¢ coupons will all be worth $1. This event will last all week long. Between 6/23/10 and 6/29/10. Remember, They are not truly doubling. Just bringing all coupons valued under $1 up to $1. This can be tons better! Go to PYP HERE to see a list of some items you can get killer deals on.

The greatest new way to save when shopping online!

I recently discovered my new favorite way to save money... The Shopping Genie. It's a free download that will find anything you are searching for online at the very cheapest prices! Whenever you use a major search engine like Google or Yahoo, your little Genie will pop up on the right hand side of your page. When you click compare, it will tell you where that item is found for the lowest price! It is so time consuming to look through page after page of search results. This is so fast and easy... and it does all the thinking for you! I love it!

Click on the link above to get your free download! I know you'll love it as much as I do!

Walgreens SCORED!!

I absolutely scored at Walgreens today! The reason I am so excited is because everything I bought I use and love and I got a killer/screaming deal! You definitely can't beat that! Some of Walgreens Register Rewards are not advertised in their ads, thus will not show up on the grocerysmarts list. I did some digging around on my favorite blogs to see what deals are unadvertised. Here is my breakdown...
Total value of purchase $107.48
Total Saved $95.25
Total Spent out of pocket $12.23
Total percentage saved 88%
I had to seperate all my items into 7 different transactions. (Hint: I always go to the cosmetics counter to check out, there's never a line and they're always patient)
Register Rewards are just like catalinas. They print out after you buy that item. Then you roll it over to another transaction. Remember you can't roll a RR to the same item, has to be a different item. Feel free to comment or email me if you have any questions!
For scenarios check out one of my favorite websites at Fabulessly frugal for ideas!

Current Catalina deals

Check out the current catalina deals going on at Albertsons HERE. Grocerysmarts does not post these individual catalinas, it's too much work for our listmakers. But make sure you match up these cats if they're on sale. It'll save you tons more! For example Loreal is on sale this week at Albies for 40% off. We also have manufactured coupons posted on the grocerysmarts website. On top of all that you can get $3.00 off your purchase of $10 or more! That's an extra 30% off!
Check out Smiths Catalinas HERE!
This is just an extra step for those who want to even save more!!!

Stock up trip to Albies

I know, I know! I just bought cereal last week. But with all my company I've had lately, I will use this up fast. Plus we all have our favorites and frosted mini-wheats are my husbands. But how can you beat only 0.54 cents a box! As some of you may know, Tide is the only detergent I can use (as per my high maintenance hubby), so when they come out as a ***** 5-star deal, it's stock up time. I compared these little 50 oz. bottles to the Costco 170 oz. bottles. I paid .06 cents an oz. and Costco would've cost me .11 cents an oz. So if I would've bought a 50 oz at .11 cents it would've cost me $5.50. Instead I paid $3.49, so in essence I saved $8.04 just buying the smaller bottles at Albies with a sale and my coupons! That's a no brainer! If you want to compare Costco prices check out PYP HERE for a huge list.
Many of you will not know about the McCormick Catalina right now. I found a great scenerio on Fabulously Frugal which states the following...
Buy 4 at 4.99 BOGO $9.98
use 4 $1/1 from (must use 47265 zip code)
get $2.50 Catalina back
Vanilla extract comes out to .87 cents each!
I think the catalina only works on extracts and food coloring cause I only got $1.50 cat. but I bought spices. If anyone tries it out, let me know if it works.
So my breakdown for the week...
Total value of purchase $120.95
Total saved $77.70
Total Spent $36.75
Total percentage saved 64%
Plus!!! I got 3 coupons for free milk, and $6.50 in catalinas back!!!
