Deal of the Week: iPhone 75% off!!!

Well, I did it. I bought another thing on my "Five things we don't mind going without" list. No worries though, because it is very quickly moving it's way onto my "Five purchases I don't regret" list!

Without sounding too much like a complete drama queen, I do have to say that it is changing my life. Okay, not really, however I LOVE it and the organizing/list making side of me (which seems to get more intense as the years go on) LOVES the functionality of all of the different apps!! It is so easy to organize shopping trips, plan meals, keep track of the budget, and just jot things down as they come into my head.

Oh! I got so carried away I almost forgot to tell you how I got it for 75% off! It was originally $200. I had my $50 "upgrade credit" since I haven't bought a new phone in 2 years (which came off instantly...that was nice because in the past you always had to submit for a rebate which came in the form of a giftcard). Because the iphone 5 is coming out soon, Verizon is doing a promotion if you upgrade to a smartphone and trade in your old phone they will give you a $100 giftcard. I can use the giftcard to pay bills, so I will just use the $100 budgeted for next month's bill toward the phone and voila! A $50 iphone!

Deal of the Week: $0.48 Capri pants!

I LOVE Target's coupon website. They often have coupons for various clothing that they carry, and you can often find super cheap items in their clearance section. This is how I got my free jeans, $2 jeans, and now $0.48 khaki capris!

Deal of the Week: Jewel Fun!

I wasn't planning on going grocery shopping today, but we got some Jewel coupon booklets in the mail and I had a few "$1 off your next shopping trip" coupons to use up by Tuesday. I scanned the flyer, gathered my coupons, and spent a few minutes making a list. I'm so glad I went because I scored some awesome deals!!

They had random 6 packs of beer taped together that were on clearance for $3. I probably would have just rushed right by the cart, but the Sam Adams caught my eye...Tom's favorite beer! So for $0.50/beer I couldn't really pass it up!
Spent $23.77
Saved $40.72 (the savings from the beer didn't get added up in the savings area of the receipt, so really I probably saved closer to $52)

Deal of the Week: Jewel Trip and Target Outfit

Ran into Jewel quick before work one day this week to grab a few freebies and cheapies.
Spent $2.25
Saved $11.80
Received $2 coupons to use at next visit!

I went into Target after we got back from vacation to buy a few things we were needing (dog food, new lamps, etc). I have this nasty little habit of always perusing the clearance racks when I'm there...and this time found some really awesome deals! I got the outfit pictured below (minus the shoes) for $17!! The pants are a nice pair of dress pants - light gray, and the shirt is a sleeveless black shirt with tiny ruffles around the neckline and arms.
