Top Foods: Tillamook Sale is Back!

Top Foods' Tillamook promotion is back! The deal is not as sweet as last time but it's still a great deal on cheese!

Spend $10 on any combination of Tillamook products and save $2 instantly. This is a mix & match sale and ALL things Tillamook are included.

Here are some prices: AFTER $2 Savings

2 lb Cheese Blocks - $4 each

Tillamook Ice Cream - $2.67 each

Tillamook Butter - $2.00/lb

Tillamook Yogurt - $.40 each

There are other items included in the sale but I didn't think to look at any other prices, sorry!

Cheese only scenario:
Buy Two 2 lb cheese blocks $10
Save $2 instantly
Final price: $8 for 4 lbs of cheese, can be even sweeter with coupons!

I have a ton of cheese from a Kraft promotion a while back so I only ended up buying 1 block, plus I was out of butter and I had a coupon for the ice cream so I decided to do the following scenario:

Buy 1 2lb loaf
Buy 1 lb butter
Buy 1 ice cream
Subtotal: $10.83
- $2 instant savings for spending $10
- used $1 off 1 cheese coupon
- used $.75 off ice cream coupon
Final Price: $7.08 ($3 for the cheese, $2 for the butter, $2.08 for the ice cream)

I got the coupons from the Tillamook Loaf Love tour that was in town a couple of weeks ago! Sweet coupons and free samples, plus a cute mini bus!

A couple of other good deals at Top this week are:

Organic Peaches and Nectarines - $1.79/lb.

Annies Homegrown Mac & Cheese - $1.00/box

Shop Online: REI Outlet 20% Off

From now through Thursday, 8/19/10 the REI-Outlet online store is having a great sale! Load your cart with already clearance priced goodies and you will automatically receive an extra 20% off the most expensive item in your cart! No coupon needed!

Plus, if you shop through ShopAtHome.com first you will receive an additional 4% cash back on your total purchase!

If you are a new member to ShopAtHome, sign up for free HERE and receive an additional $5 sign up bonus! That's a total of 24% off already clearance priced items plus an extra $5 cash back!

Fred Meyer: Cheap Toilet Paper!

Cottonelle Double Roll 12 Packs are on sale for $4.99 this week with an in-ad coupon. (Limit 4)
You can stack your in-ad store coupon with a manufacturer coupon to get even more of a discount!

There are $1 off 1 coupons in the July issue of All You magazine. Did you receive the Cottonelle samples from Walmart.com a while back? There were $1 off 1 coupons in with the samples! If you don't have the $1 off coupons you can print a $.50 off 1 coupon HERE.

Final Price: $3.99 to $4.49

That works out to be $.33 to $.37 per double roll.

This is not a super stock up price but it is cheaper than Costco prices. The Kirkland Signature 36 packs are $17.99 or $.49/roll.

The way I see it is if I need TP and I can get it cheaper somewhere other than Costco then it's a good deal! I used to buy EVERYTHING at Costco before I learned how to use coupons. Now I get things much much cheaper!

Want to see the rest of Fred Meyer's great deals for the week? Check out Frugal Chic Living's post HERE!

I'm Back!

Naomi and I are back from our little vacation to visit family and James made it home safely from Europe! We all had a great time and Naomi especially loved playing the role of "Farm Girl" at my Dad's house in northern Idaho! He has chickens and Naomi got to help let them in and out of the coop each day and got to collect eggs, maybe someday we can get some chickens of our own, I think it would be fun! Plus we would save money by "growing" our own organic eggs!

Just look how cute she is with her little farmer girl boots with shorts!

Now that I am home, it's back to business, starting with the winner of the $25 Kroger Family of Stores gift card giveaway! General Mills, Kimberly Clark and Kroger through MyBlogSpark will be providing the winner with a $25 gift card to the Kroger Family of Stores, including Fred Meyer!

#56 - Deanna G. - she wants to stock up on veggies and snack bars!

Deanna has received an email from me and has 24 hours to respond before another winner will be selected. Congrats again Deanna!

Thanks for all the giveaway entries! Stay tuned, I have another Fabule$$ giveaway coming later this week!

P.S. Did you know it's almost my 1st Blogiversary?! I hope to have a fun birthday giveaway for the last week in August to celebrate!

On the Road Again...

So my husband is heading out for a trip to Germany for 6 days this morning. His best friend is getting married and he is the best man! I wish I was going, but financially a trip to Europe for a family of 3 is quite expensive these days it turns out.

Since he is going to be gone for 6 days I decided that I would go spend some quality summer time with family and friends! I am going to spend 3 days in Leavenworth and then 3 days in the Sandpoint, Idaho area! I am hoping to do lots of fun "summer" things like float the river, get fresh peach shakes and go to some yard sales with my dad!

While I am going to be on the road a lot the next week, I do still plan on doing some light posting since I am taking my laptop with me. I just wanted to wish everyone a great week and don't forget to enter my $25 Kroger Family of Stores gift card giveaway!
