Charcoal as low as $3.50!

Plan on cooking out this weekend for the football game and Labor day? CVS has a great deal right now on charcoal. The Kingsford charcoal is 50% off which makes them $3.50! I know the CVS on Hwy 43 has this deal, you'll need to check your local CVS to see if they are doing the same. I saw the lighter fluid in the same area of the summer stuff that is 50% off. I would assume it is on sale as well but I'm not sure. I know I will be stocking up as this price is extremely cheap!

Ball Park Singles

If you weren't able to get the $2/1 facebook coupon for the Ball Park franks, then you can go HERE and get a $.75/1 coupon for the Ball Park Singles. This is great to use this week at Publix because they will be B1G1 starting tomorrow! Also, I know that the Northport store on Hwy 82 has tearpads close to the Ball Park hot dogs that state: FREE Sara Lee hot dog buns when you buy 2 packages of Ball Park Franks. You will be able to get 2 packs of hot dogs and a pack of buns for around $2.50! I haven't priced checked it so the price may vary a little but its still a great deal.

Welcome to my new blog!! I am very excited about this. I am a coupon lover and I hope that you are too! This can be a wonderful experience. I even have my boys looking for coupons and everytime they see one "Mom, there's a coupon!!" Even they are learning at a young age to save money.

If you have any questions, you can always contact me.  I will try to help lead you to the right websites to help you save the most money. With Christmas coming up, we could use a little extra money each week to put back to buy all those presents we know we will regret later!
