Its October!

I can't believe its October already! Fall is such a wonderful time of the year. I love to see the leaves change and feel the crisp of the fall air. Plus its a busy time of the year for me and my family. Football season (my husband's 2nd love!), school & cheer competitions for my daughter and lots of soccer for my little boy! Its also my mother's birthday month (she taught me everything there is to know about finding the right deals!) Before you know it the holidays will be here so I try my best to take it all in. The deals and bargains will really begin to kick in high gear...I can't wait!

I'll be away from my blog for most of the weekend. I'm coordinating a wedding on Saturday for a friend (congrats Sherry!) Therefore, I decided to have a little giveaway while I'm away! On Monday, October 12 @ 10 am (EST) I'll pick a name using and one lucky reader will receive a $5 gift card to CVS or Target...your choice! To register, leave me a comment on why you like or love this time of the year. Also, if you're not a follower...please join below!

Have a great weekend and Happy Fall!
***The winner is Terri! Thanks so much for your posts!****

FREE Glade candles plus a $5 rebate

I love the new Glade Fragrance Collection candles...especially when I can get them for FREE! My local Walmart has the 4.6 oz candles for $3.00. When you use the $3.50 coupon from here, they are FREE, plus a 50 cent overage. I purchased 2 candles today and one reed diffuser. The Glade Fragrance Collection reed diffusers are $4.50 at Walmart. You can get these for $1 (after the $3.50 printable) or $1.50 after the $3 mfc from this past Sunday's insert.

To make this deal even "sweeter", go here to print a $5 rebate form when you purchase 3 Glade products. The rebate form states 3 $5 rebates per household can be submitted...a $15 moneymaker!

Kroger Mega Sale

This week Kroger has their Mega Event when you buy 10 participating frozen items and receive $5 off. The $5 off equates to 50 cents off each item. Based on the same deal in the past you can purchase up to 30 participating items and have up to $15 taken off in one transaction. My sales flier for this week only shows a few participating items, but once I got into the store I noticed there were many other frozen items that qualified. Today I purchased 10 of the participating items, plus 2 nut clusters and only spent $7.99 for the items above. I had a total savings of 77%.
