This deal is for Target Up and Up diapers. At Target.com, you can find these diapers for $6.49 when you buy 4. By purchasing 4, you'll save 15% and get free shipping automatically. Use promo code URTYJLI8 at checkout and save an additional 10%. Final price for an order that will ship to Logan will be $20.39 after tax. At least for the size 6 diapers, this isn't quite as good as the Huggies Deal at Walgreens, but close, and a REALLY good deal if you don't have coupons. Not to mention you don't have to go to the store and can do the order from home!
Reviews on the Up and Up diapers seem positive! If you get them or have tried them, leave a comment to let us know how good they are.
A few months ago I happened upon a website called House Party. Basically, they market products for companies by having consumers host house parties to get the word out about the companies' products. I signed up for a few parties, and I've been selected to host a house party!
The party I was chosen for is The Pull-Ups Potty Dance House Party. I'm planning on hosting my party on April 17th (after the tax season is over) at 4:00 pm. We'll learn tips and tricks for how we can potty train our youngsters, and there will be all sorts of free potty training swag given away!
So if you have a toddler who's in training, or if you're thinking of potty training your child, email me at email@example.com or leave a comment letting me know your email address and if April 17th at 4 pm is a good day and time for you! If it's overwhelmingly a bad day for most people, then I'll schedule it for a different time!
Also, the Star Wars Captain Rex Electronic Command Helmet was on sale at Kohls.com for just $19.99! I believe it's now sold out, but it could be available at the store! Might want to check it out. Buy now, then save the gifts for Christmas or a birthday!
I am growing to love Staples! Here are some of their $1 dealt this week! Items are limited to 2 per household. I'm so excited about the paper! I go through it so fast now that I print so many coupons. I saw this deal a few weeks ago, too, so I'm thinking they might do it frequently!
Also, this week you can print a coupon for an additional 15% off! That will make the paper reams just $0.25! WOW, that's HOT!

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray - $1.49

Or use $0.50/1 from 1/31 RP (You should have received this on Tuesday in the mail!)

Hi Friends! So sorry I haven't been posting this week, but I've been so busy! I have a new job at Jackson Hewitt Tax Service. This week and next week, I'm working 40+ hours a week, and in between I'm finding great deals and printing coupons late at night and playing with my kids during the day. Oh, and running on a treadmill, since I'm also currently training for a marathon (check out my blog about that here!).
But never fear, I'll try to post a few great deals tonight! First off, Jackson Hewitt is offering $25 off your tax preparation. There are new tax laws this year that can help you get a great refund, so I highly recommend you see a tax professional to get your taxes prepared. The fees are usually higher than using an online service, but tax professionals will guarantee their work and provide audit assistance if you get audited by the IRS. Just make sure you use a coupon! Take it to the Jackson Hewitt Tax Service office across the street from McDonalds on the south side of Logan, or to the Jackson Hewitt office located at the front of the Walmart store on the north side of Logan. They'll even prepare your taxes while you shop!
What should you take with you to have your taxes prepared?

Dependants' Social Security numbers and dates of birth
Tuition and Education Fees/1098-T
Student loan interest/1098-E
Self-employment business income and expenses/1099-MISC

Canceled Debt Amount/1099-C
Social Security income/SSA-1099
Statements on the sales of stocks or bonds/1099-B

Income and expenses from rentals
Alimony paid or received

How much does it cost to have my taxes done?
It varies based on the complexity of your return. Call the Jackson Hewitt Tax Service office at (435) 787-8399 for a free quote and to set up your appointment! Walk-ins are also welcome.

I just ordered a VERY CUTE day planner from Snapfish with a photo of my daughters' photo on it for just $1.49! HOW? Sign up for a NEW ACCOUNT from Snapfish from THIS LINK. Doing so will give your account a $10 credit, which you can use immediately on whatever you want! There are a number of very cute products in their store, including a variety of notebooks, address books, notepads, and planners.
NOTE: Your credit will not be applied until after you enter your credit card number.

Also, I think I got the last two bags of Tostitos tonight at Walgreens (unless they had more in the back). So you can still submit the Coors Light rebate (no beer purchase required), but you'll have to buy Tostitos somewhere else, or you can buy any of the other products listed on the rebate form. If you want to get the $10 Register Reward, you can purchase $20 of Pepsi, Doritos, Lays, Gatorade, or any of the other items listed in their ad! So even if you choose not to submit for the $7.50 rebate, you can still get basically 50% off an already good sales price! I actually went back tonight to get more Pepsi & chips because you really can't buy 5 12 packs of Pepsi and 2 bags of chips for $10 anywhere else! If you're not a caffeine drinker, they did have a few packs of caffeine free left!

Chef Boyardee $0.98
Betty Crocker Helpers: as low as $0.55
Check this out! You can score FREE photobooks and FREE shipping! Not only that, you can get one FREE photobook per month! Just go to Hotprints.com to learn how!
I'm definitely NOT a scrapbooker, and I rarely even print off my photos. So this will be a great way for me to create a memory album for my family. I'm planning on going back to 2006 when my first little girl was born, and starting there to play catch up!
Have you used Hotprints before? If so, what did you think?
I'll let you know how my first book turns out (if I ever find time to make it)!

- French's Onions (the kind you use to make green bean casserole) - These were marked down to $2.14, plus I had coupons from a previous Sunday paper!
- Decorator icing for my baby's upcoming birthday for $1.25 a tube.
- Natures Valley Granola Nut Clusters for $1.99 (and I used the $1 coupon from coupons.com)
- Quaker True Delight granola bars for $1.79 (again, I had a $1/2 coupon from coupons.com!)
- Jeri's BBQ Sauce for $1.49 - I've never had this, but thought it seemed like a good deal!
- Reynolds Oven Bags (the kind for turkeys or large hams) for $.99 for a box of 2
The following items were also marked down. These weren't in the carts, but clear in the back by the dairy section. There's a table set up off the main shopping route in a little hallway that goes into an employee only section (that sounds kinda creepy, doesn't it?):
- Small containers of store brand baby formula for $4.99 (regularly marked $9.99) - And no, I'm not pregnant, but these don't expire till fall of 2011, so I couldn't pass it up! You don't get good deals on baby formula very often!
- Sunscreen SPF 15 for $2.44
As I browsed the store at 10:30 at night, I also discovered they have a lot of items on close-out prices, such as L'Oreal Vive Pro Shampoo, Conditioner, and Styling Gel for $2.44 (and, you got it, I had a coupon!).
A few weeks ago I also looked in the dairy section across from the milk in one of those coolers in the middle of the aisle. There was Yoplait Fiber One Yogurt and a couple other varieties that were marked down to $0.88! I had a $1 coupon, so that was better than free yogurt!
My point is, look for these unadvertised deals. They can cut your grocery bill way down, even if you don't have any coupons to use.
Please leave a comment if you know of any other stores that have these great finds!
Now my dilemma is to decide if I want to even get the diapers! I think my baby is about ready for potty training, and I still have several packs left from the last sale. Decisions, decisions! I can't imagine I'd let this deal slide me by, so I'll probably be there getting diapers on Monday!
In order to kick-start my new blog, I'm hosting my first giveaway ever! The winner will receive $5 off coupon any Scentsy or Cookie Lee product! I'm an independent sales consultant for both companies, so the item will need to be purchased through me. You can use the coupon any way you want, but it could man a FREE Scentsy bar or Cookie Lee bracelet!
You can get an entry by doing any of the following, and you can get multiple entries, so do as many as you can!
- Leave a comment telling me what your favorite product is in the PepsiCo Products deal at Walgreens on the previous post.
- Leave a comment telling me where you live in Cache Valley (Logan, Mendon, Hyde Park, etc.) and your favorite thing about living in Cache Valley (it's got to be the great air quality, right?).
- Leave a comment about a great deal you know of (such as free storytime at the library, which restaurants give free birthday desserts, if kids get in free with adult purchase, etc.).
- Become a follower of my blog (click on "Follow" to the right).
All comments need to be left on CashInCache blog, not on Facebook. Thank you!
- 12 Pack of Pepsi Products (on sale for 5/$15)
- 2 Liter Pepsi Products (on sale for 4/$5)
- Gatorade 32 oz (on sale for 5/$5)
- Tostitos Chips, Dip, or Salsa 9 to 15.62 oz (on sale for 2/$5)
- Doritos 11.75 to 14.5 oz (on sale for 2/$5)
- Stacy's Pita Chips 7.33 or 8 oz (on sale for 2/$5)
- Lay's Chips 10.5 to 12 oz (on sale for 2/$5)
- Fritos Dip 15 oz (on sale for 2/$5)
5 12 packs of Pepsi for $15
Then when you get home, fill out this Coors Lite Rebate (no beer purchase required in Utah) for $7.50! This rebate form is a pdf that is 4 pages long with 4 different rebates. Just print the rebate for $7.50.
So the total cost for 5 12 packs of Pepsi and 2 bags of Doritos ends up being only $1.10! Even if you can't find the $1/2 Pepsi coupons, you can still get this deal for just $3.10. That's less than 1 12 pack of Pepsi is normally!
There is a $0.55 off coupon when you purchase one bag of Tostitos and one Tostitos Dip from last Sunday's newspaper, but currently Walgreens is sold out of Tostitos. They told me they'd be restocking their shelves on Thursday, so you could get a little bit better of a deal!
For more Walgreens deals this week, check out Hip2Save. Just a heads up, the Wet Ones deal is not available at our Walgreens. Also, keep in mind that if you do the Revlon deal, you only get a $5 coupon good towards any Revlon product, not a regular Register Reward.

That's why I need your help! If you love to find great deals and want to help with this blog, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
KrazyCouponLady also has price match-ups for Maceys!
Western Family Yogurt is just $0.25 each. Combine that with the $0.75 off 4 coupon from coupons.com, and you got yourself 4 yogurts for a total of $0.25! That's just a little over $0.06 each! WOW! I'd say find as many printers as you can and print as many coupons as you can! A friend recently told me you can freeze yogurt! This is DEFINITELY a stock-up price!
If you prefer name-brand yogurts, Yoplait 4 packs are also on sale for $1.50 and there are printable coupons for $1.00 off, making them just $0.50 each!
My favorite deal from the case lot sale was the Western Family Diced Tomatoes. A case of 24 is $11.52, or $0.48 a can.

Why? Because I've entered the world of coupon clipping and saving BIG money. I want to help other Cache Valley locals find financial freedom by saving money on groceries and household items, clothes, and basically just about everything!
This will require a collaboration of efforts, so I'm asking for your help!
I'm still a fairly newbie on this, but I'm quickly becoming an expert on shopping at Walgreens, Smiths, and Maceys. I'm not just talking about your everyday grocery shopping where you spend way more money than you planned, since you were just headed to the store for a gallon of milk and loaf of bread. I'm talking about how you can change your shopping experience to put YOU in control, and how you can save 70% or more EACH TIME you go to the grocery store!
"What will this cost me?" you might ask. Well, so far all it's cost me is a lot of time and energy and paper for printing coupons.
It won't cost you anything, unless you decide to get a newspaper subscription (highly recommended, but not required), and the paper to print coupons. I'll just be teaching you how to use coupons and sales to maximize your savings and minimize your spending.
What I need help with is finding other great deals in Cache Valley! I can find the grocery store deals, and even big chain store deals (like if Old Navy or JC Penny is having a sale, you can find out about it here). But what about those other things? If you hear about a sale or special on the radio or read about it in the newspaper, please let me know so I can post about it hear! I'm thinkng of things like a free or discounted skating night at the Eccles Ice Center, or maybe a contest for tickets to a USU basketball game. Email the deals you hear about to me at email@example.com.
So say you're a business owner, or someone who's trying to earn extra cash. Maybe you play guitar, so you want to start giving guitar lessons during your spare time. Offer a few free lessons as a giveaway on my blog as free advertising for yourself! This is an example. Get creative!
I also need a couple savvy savers to help me manage this blog. I am the mother of two little girls who are demanding on my time. As I already mentioned, I'm training for a marathon, so I have to spend a lot of time running. Also, I'm going to work for Jackson Hewitt as a tax preparer through April 15 in the evenings and on Saturday. Plus I'm the Primary president in my ward! So I'm busy, and my time is limited. I promise to give you my all, but I am very interested in finding a couple of others who are already saving Cash in Cache who can assist with this blog. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
To get you started on coupon clipping and how to save with coupons, I highly recommend you do what I did. Check out these three sites: www.thekrazycouponlady.com, www.hip2save.com, www.pinchingyourpennies.com. Study their Couponing 101 sections.
If I just gave you these three great websites, why do you need my blog? Well, I'm hoping to make it easier for you. These websites post so many great deals, including Target, Harmons, Winco, Safeway, and many other grocery stores that we don't have here in Cache Valley. Plus, we have many awesome stores in Cache Valley that they don't have, and hence don't post their deals! I'm going to do what I can to collaborate with local business owners to get them to send me their great deals.
So here's my blog! All you need to saving Cash in Cache.
