Vons - Awesome deal on TP. Cottonelle 12pk: $1.99

Toilet paper is one of those things that you can easily store, it doesn't go bad, and you always run out when you least expect it.  Its best to buy lots of it when its dirt cheap, that way you don't run to the store and purchase it when its back up in price again. Plus, we all know we go in to the super market wanting to buy one item, and end up purchasing lots of other unnecessary things.  So here's what you'll do at Vons:

*Okay, so this week Vons has an in-ad coupon to get the 12 pk for $4.99.  I've read that some people are reporting that there are blinkies next to the product.

Cottonelle Catalina Promo (10/8 - 10/31)
Valid on Cottonelle 12-roll, blue, green & purple packages.
Buy 2, receive a $2 oyno catalina
Buy 3, receive a $3 oyno catalina

Deal Idea:
Buy (2) Cottonelle Toilet Paper, 12-pk | $4.99 with in-ad coupon (Limit 2)
- (2) $2/1 blinkie coupons
OR - (2) 50¢/1 Cottonelle printable coupons (or printable here)
Pay: as low as $5.98, receive a $2 catalina
Final Price: $1.99 each when you buy 2 (or just 17¢ a roll!)
(This deal may be a hit or miss since it does involve blinkies, which are coupons found next to the item.  If your store doesn't have the coupons, oh well, and if you find them, share where you got it.)
Thanks, This Frugal Life
I've found another awesome deal for Vons. This one involves catalinas, which are register coupons that will print at the end of your receipt. You will pay out of pocket first, but that catalina can be used on your next purchase, or even on the same deal again. If you have any questions comment below. I've never tried these before, but 50 cents ea sounds pretty nice.

Spend $10 or more, receive a $3 oyno catalina

Deal Idea:Buy (2) Finish Quantumatic | $5.00 (until 10/26)

My Vons Trip .....$2.22+tax = TOTAL SPENT!!


Okay, so while my son was at a field trip, I decided to stop at Vons.  I only go there to get deals, I don't usually just browse down their aisles.  I am a loyal shopper at my Commissary, and if you don't know what that is, thats the store inside our military base.  Its only dedicated to people in the Armed Forces, so I have the privilege to go there.  Today I got:

-2 lbs of Strawberries, which are on sale for Buy one get one Free @ $2.99.

- 4 Nivea Chapsticks $0.99, use (2) $2/2 Redplum 10/3

-Banana Nut Cheerios : $1.99 (with in-ad coupon)
Use $0.75 printable coupon here
Final price = 49 cents

- Pillsbury Sweet Moments Brownies : $1.99  (with in-ad coupon)
Use $1/1 coupon from 9/12 General Mills insert, or

Well those were the things I picked up, but if you would like to see the full list of Vons deals, go here .

How to shop at Vons!!!

 Hi everyone, If you live in my area, than most likely you have a Vons store near you.  Every week Vons has a store weekly ad. Their flyer will last a week, and it starts on Wednesdays, and ends on Tuesdays.  They will also release a 4 day sale. This flyer is usually found in the Sunday paper, and will last from Friday-Monday of that week.

Vons does have a coupon policy, which can vary depending on your store, but for the most part, they will double one like coupon. They will double any coupon less than $1, up to a dollar.  For example, if I have a .25 cent coupon, it will ring up as .50 cents. If i have a .50 cent coupon, it will ring up as $1. But if I have a .75 cent coupon, it will only ring up as $1.  Yea, we don't quite double like other stores in the East  Coast, but its nice anyway.

Okay, it gets better....Vons also has e-coupons. They are electronic coupons that you can load up onto your Vons card.  (Yes, you will have to have a valid, and working Vons Rewards card, which you can easily get from any cashier). The websites usually offering e-coupons are PGesaver, CellFire, and Shortcuts!! The only downfall of e-coupons is that they are only available once, and until the website resets the coupons can you load them again. (If I have an e-coupon , I can redeem it, but can't go back home and do it all over again, unless they reset it)

NOW LISTEN UP!!!!!! You may use a manufacture coupon, and an e-coupon together on the same product. Since the e-coupons are taken off only and if you slide your Vons card, you can then hand the cashier your manufacture coupons. Also if you have a Vons in ad coupon you can also hand in this one too. Most of the time when I shop there I will get money taken off through e-coupons, an in-ad coupon, and a manufacture coupon, ALL ON THE SAME PRODUCT.  Yes . this is definately the right way to do it.
Okay now that you have all the information for shopping at Vons, now you can wait for all the deals to come.

Save $1 on Simply Orange Juice, any size!!

Check it out, Simply Orange just released a printable coupon over on their Facebook page for. Since this coupon doesn't state any size exclusions, if you want, the small individual bottles of this juice usually goes on sale for around a dollar, so FREE after coupon!

Make sure to hit your browsers back button so you can print two!

Go to Southern Savers to see the entire list of coupons.
(I currently get 4 newspapers delivered to my door, and others can do the same, just by calling your local newspaper and asking about what deals they have. Remember to always get the largest city's newspaper, for example...If you can choose from your small city, and you also have L.A times, I would go with L.A times, just because they tend to have more coupons.  I would recommend purchasing your paper at a discount store like Dollar Tree, or any other store that sells it cheaper than the machines.  If you are not embarrassed like me, you can also go to a coffee shop, and just browse through the recycled newspapers. Usually they'll have a basket where customers can throw away the paper they've read. Many ways to get your newspaper cheap... its all about looking.)

Welcome !!!!!!

I had been wanting to write about what I do with a passion, which is clipping coupons. I love to save money, and many people always ask me how I did it.  Well, this will make it easier to share my stories, and my tips. I'm not sure what to write about today, but I thought I'd welcome everyone, or anyone who stops by here. If you are doing coupons already, or love the thrill of saving money, I encourage you to share your thoughts on my blog. If you are barely starting out, well, I hope you find my page useful.
