Last week when I wrote up the Sunday flyers I felt like I had endless energy, fresh off the high of delivering our beautiful son. A week later, I'm still quite happy with mommy's little dividend, but I am very, very tired. Also, after a full weekend of visitors I am just now finding time to type this up at quarter to 10. And I should be taking a bath and getting to bed. So I'll be brief.
- World Market (Cost Plus) says they are still giving away a free tote bag, while supplies last. One per person, per day. Does everyone love that store as much as I do? Just browsing through their sales, I notice they have some nice metal storage bins for $9.99 -- less than you usually pay for much crappier fabric bins at Target. Also cute printed coir doormats for $7.99.
- There's a 20% off one item Bed, Bath & Beyond coupon as a single-page flyer in my Tribune. I recently brought a bunch of these into my local BB&B to ask if it were true that they would accept them beyond the expiration dates, and they said sure. They also let me use a bunch of them in one transaction, saving me a substantial amount on a multi-item wedding present. So save these babies -- eventually someone you know will register there!
- JoAnn, as usual, has a 40% off any regular priced item coupon and a 50% off custom framing order.
- Toys R Us has a coupon for 15% off any video game. Other coupons: 15% off strollers or travel systems, 15% off car seats, $3/2 formula, and $7 off Especially for Baby value box diapers AND Value Box Wipes. They're offering a free lunch kit worth $9.99 when you buy a backpack priced $12.99 or more, excluding Adidas. Crayola pencils, markers and paper are buy 1, get 2 free. They're advertising Christmas in July for July 25, with special one-day deals and some kids activities from 12-2.
- Target is offering a $50 gift card with an XBox 360 60GB game system, which costs $299. My husband says this is a good deal. Also, a $10 gift card if you buy a wireless controller for it for $49.99. Also, you get a $5 gift card for buying three 12-oz bags of Starbucks coffee for $7 each.
- I already picked up my CVS freebies today -- pencils, pens, filler paper and little notepads. I couldn't find the 1-inch binders. These are not the supplies my kindergartener will actually need for school, but she will enjoy writing and drawing with them at home. For all CVS deals for the week, check out I Heart CVS.
- Walgreen's is offering the following supplies for 9 cents: Highlighters, #2 pencils with designs, sheets of white posterboard and 2-pocket folders. For 19 cents, you can get a 10-pack of Paper Mate pens or a 5-pack of mechanical pencils. For a full rundown of Walgreen's deals, check out Common Sense With Money.
- Kmart is offering free school scissors if you spend $15 or more on school supplies, with a coupon found on p. 2 of the flyer. Elmer's glue is 20 cents for 4 oz. bottles or 2-packs of sticks. There is a "buy $15, get a $4 coupon, buy $25, get an $8 coupon" listed on p. 2 also for school supplies including Paper Mate, Trapper, Mead, Crayola, Expo, Sharpie and Avery. Also you'll get a 15% off coupon for school supplies if you spend $50 on apparel. AND there's a coupon on the back page for a $5/$50 coupon for food, drugstore or school supplies.
