Market Your Website/Business

I’m always looking for ways to market my business or website. I have a Tupperware business so handing out ink pens would be a great way to market it. Here are some ways you could use to start marketing pens. People love free pens so leave them at a bank, grocery stores with a cashier, after you sign your bill at a restaurant, or give them as freebie with an order.

Picture Of My CVS Deals

Here is a picture of all the deals I got for $15 including my CVS deals. I forgot to take one. I had it all lined up for hubby to see when he got home. He was impressed with how little I paid for all of it. Over half of it was for stuff to put in my gift baskets. I was able to save plus buy items for Christmas gifts. What did you great CVS deals have you scored recently?

First Week of July- Great Shopping Day!

I already know I’ve had a post titled I love CVS but I really do love that store! I did most of the monthly deals and some of the weekly ones today. I saved a lot of money on this great shopping trip, and I am keeping a few items to put in my gift baskets I make for Christmas. I still need to get the Bic Soliel Razors monthly deal but my coupons haven’t come in yet. They are well stocked at the moment so hoping that lasts. I also got some stuff at Rite-Aid today. I did 3 transactions at CVS.

Rite-Aid Shopping Trip

  • 1 Degree Clinical Deodorant- $6.99
  • 2 RA boxes of Dryer Sheets (B1G1F) $3.19
  • 1 Pert Plus (25% more bottle)- $2.50
  • 1 Pert Plus Botanical- $2.50
  • 1 Gum- 99 cents
  • 1 Softsoap- $2.99

Coupons:

  • $1 Softsoap
  • $2 Pert Plus
  • $3 Pert Plus
  • $2 Degree
  • Total $8 in coupons

Grand Total with tax- $12.79 and I’m getting back $6 in Rebates from RA and $2.50 TMF Pert Plus Rebate so then grand total is $4.29! Not too shabby and I really needed dryer sheets and these were the huge 100 count ones! I would have bought more but these were the last 2 in the store. They were also out of the Dove Clinical and Oxy Freebies. Oh well.

Then I headed for shopping at CVS for the deals. I won’t post them like above since it’s too many to list but I will say I got the Free Liners, Tampons, 6 of the Sure Deodorants, 8 Softsoap bottles (B1G1F), 2 Coppertone Baby Sticks, Swiffer Duster and Refill, Right Guard Clinical Deo, and Vaseline Lotion. I got all of these items for $15! I am getting back a $2.89 rebate for the Sure. The total after the rebate for $12.11 and I have almost $23.49 in ECB’s. I still need the Bic razors/refills and the CVS brand Face Wipes which I have a $2 beauty coupon to print. The coupon is too huge so I need to work on that later today. Once I get my rebates back then I spent less than $20 for all this stuff. I mostly spent money on the Softsoap body washes but these make great additions to my gift baskets. I spend around $5 per person and I give 6 of these away each year. I usually donate the extras to either the women’s shelter or my Church.

I could have gotten my $12 total down to under $2 if I had used another $10 ECB but I wasn’t thinking. I am still proud of how I did even with the extra $10 upfront. I still have it but just in the form on an ECB but I really like rolling the old ones into new ones. Share your totals and shopping deals. I would love to hear about them.

Great Freebie Site!

I have recently found a great freebie site called Free Stuff. They have featured freebies daily that change. Some of them are from Walmart but some aren’t. You can check freebies by a certain category and even post some great coupons to print. You should check them out by clicking on the link.

We Interrupt This Blog To Bring You the Following…

I know some of you might be wondering why some posts look like advertisements and you are correct. They are and I started this blog for several reasons which I explained in a previous post. I like to think of them as commercials. I do think a few of the posts I’m doing do fit in like the life insurance one. I strongly believe every adult should have a term policy to cover funeral expensses and other expenses. I wanted to explain to my readers but I’m sure most of you already knew what I was doing.

Home Entertainment Center

My dad just loves electronic gadgets, and has a very nice home entertainment center. He has wired the living room for surround sound and has a very nice flat screen tv. He has it mounted on the fireplace with an lcd mount which keeps it very secure. He has more remote controls than an electronic store. I really don’t know how he remembers what remote goes to what component. I must admit that it’s very nice to watch movies, but I would rather save our money for a nice vacation next year. I will admit that I do love the DVR we have and it’s very handy.
