Sunday? Must be time for free stuff!

If you're shopping for back to school season click here first. This week's best deals broken down by store. Don't forget price matching!

I deliberately stayed away from Staples today. Look at all the free stuff they have! I have $150 in rewards and ink checks piled up and am planning to buy an Ooma as soon as they agree to price match another store. If I wander into Staples I'll end up with label makers and printers and all sorts of uselessness instead.

First up was CVS as usual:
Revlon foundation was $9 with $9 back. I used a $1 coupon and ended up making money. Candy bars are .50 cents each. I had 2 free candy bar coupons and 2 $1/off 2 candy bar coupons. Lets hope I don't get diabetes thrown in for free!

I love cheeseThen I wandered over to PathMark for the paper and groceries. Kraft has a "Spend $15, get a $3 catalina" offer going this week. I had a bunch of .50 coupons from a blinkie in store. Cheese was $3 each so the mathematics:

5 $3 Kraft = $15
5 .50 coupons doubled = -$5
Total = $10 with $3 off the next order

Not ridiculously cheap but my new recipe book seems to be Sponsored by Cheese so I needed to stock up and that was the cheapest cheese this week.

Mmmm currantsThere was a coupon in today's Star Ledger for a free 2oz Glade soy candle. I had two and picked "currants and acai" scent - smells like candy!

The rest of the trip was regular groceries with a few coupons tossed in but nothing to blog about :)

RiteAid has free tape and very cheap insoles this week. Walgreens has free toothpaste. If you need to refill ink cartridges and like balloons Walgreens has all ink refills for $10 this week - color AND b&w.
