JC Penney – 93.3% Savings

June 17, 2009

I got a JC Penney “$10 off a $10 or more purchase” coupon in the mail a few weeks ago.  We get them every couple of months.  We don’t usually shop there, but we did order some roman shades for our new house off their web-site, so I think that is what got us on their mailing list. 

JCPenney

The coupon was set to expire this weekend, so I went to the JC Penney Homestore today to see what I could find….  My plan was to find something on sale for a little over $10 so that I could get something for almost free.  Well, mission accomplished!!  JC Penney has their summer merchandise on sale 60 – 70% off!  They had adorable, brightly colored plastic party ware (glasses, trays, pitchers, place mats, serving dishes, etc.), cute outside decorations, and nice outdoor furniture on sale.  But what caught my eye was the section of kids summer toys for 60% off.  I got a great 2 in 1 croquet and golf set for our 4 year old nephew for Christmas.  When I got home, I just put it away in our gift closet.

Golf

Original Price:   $29.99

60% off ($18):   $11.99

$10 off Coupon and Total Out of Pocket:  $1.99

Total Savings:   $28.00   (93.3%)

Arbys

During the month of May Arby’s is giving away free items on Wednesdays!  My sister, super-duper blog assistant niece, and I went to check out the free Roastburgers for lunch today.  Our local Arby’s was HOPPING!  There were flags, signs, a tent, and an inflatable moon walk for the kids.  It was like a carnival!  I got my lunch of a free Roastburger with the purchase of a drink and an order of fries for less than $3.50!  I love the Bacon Blue Roastburger, it’s awesome.  We had a great time and are looking forward to going next week for our free shakes!

No coupons were necessary!  All you had to do was purchase a drink and you got a free Roastburger.  The employees also told us that they will continue this promotion in June too, but the calendar has not been released yet.  I think this will become a weekly tradition for sure!

46% Ingles Savings

April 1, 2009

I normally don’t shop at Ingles.  I’ve been there a few times, generally just to get a super deal on some advertised special.  Yesterday, not only did we get an Ingles sales ad in the mail, but as we were watching Jeopardy, an Ingles commercial came on TV advertising a few things that we needed (cheese, toilet paper, OJ, to name a few…).  I thought, why not?  Let’s go to Ingles!  Here’s what I got:

Farmers Market Savings

March 29, 2009

I stopped by the Farmers Market by my office on Friday evening to grab a few things.  I needed a few fresh ingredients for the Lemon and Herb Crockpot Chicken that I was finally going to make on Saturday.  Here’s everything I got:

farmersmarket

10 lbs of potatoes – $2.99
2 packs of strawberries – $0.79 each
5 pack of garlic – $0.50
2 lemons – $0.25 each
Fresh rosemary – $0.99

I spent $6.56 on everything pictured!

And here is a picture of the Lemon and Herb Crock Pot Chicken that I made for dinner on Saturday.  It had a great flavor (and the house smelled amazing!), but the chicken ended up a bit dry.  I think I cooked it a little longer than I should have.
