Today, I redeemed 50,000 points for $100 off my purchases. It was a great day!

  • Value of products: $153.53
  • Paid out of pocket: $24.75
  • Savings of:  84% of $128.78

I picked up some Knorr Sidekicks which were on sale for $0.99 each (it’s what I like to eat when Chris is away). I also stocked up on some staples that I needed but always like to get free like shampoo, hair color and concealer. I also picked up a few Easter items, you know, while I was there. Ok, Ok, the chocolate bunnies called out to me…I’m weak that way. 🙂

Very satisfying shopping day!

I love Shoppers Drug Mart.

Not a huge savings week this week, but I was able to rack up 25,800 in PC Plus points which is awesome. We took advantage of the “spend $30 in the natural food section and get 6,000 points” promo (we buy organic yogurt and juice all the time). I also had a coupon from PC to get 5,000 points if your bill is over $200 so that was good too.

BOGO El Paso salsa (w/ coupon)

$2 off Jamieson vitamins

The rest was mainly produce, yogurt and juice.

This year I’m determined to save even more money than last year. 🙂

For the past few weeks, I’ve been busy with our move and my couponing took a backseat. I’m happy to say I’m back in the saddle. 🙂  The closest grocery store near our new home is Fortinos which is part of the Loblaws chain – I’m glad about that as I’ve always been a Loblaws shopper. We also have a RCSS nearby. This trip I took advantage of some coupons I had been saving (some from the last Kraft Samplicious offer, a free Haagen Dazs snack cup from a contest offer among others). I also plan on getting the mail-in rebate for the BOGO Finish dishwasher detergent.

  • Value of products: $182.55
  • Paid out of pocket: $148.44
  • Savings: $34.11  (or 19%)


We were hungry when we did this trip (BAD idea) so it’s higher than it should have been but what can you do…


Good deals this week:

FREE Cracker Barrel sliced cheese (savings of $5.80)

BOGO Satin Care shave gel (savings of $3.00)

FREE Haagen Dazs snack cup (savings of approx. $2.00)

Glad compostable bags: Reg price $6.49 with a $2 coupon and $2 off from Checkout51

Danone yogourt – had 3 coupons for various Danone products, savings of $4.50

Loblaws savings this week: 26%

After skipping my usual grocery trip last week (my husband was away on business), I expected this week to be higher than usual but it turns out, that wasn’t the case, and I got to redeem $20 of PC Points. Since we’re moving in 2 weeks, we’re trying to keep everything to a bare minimum so we have very little to move from the fridge/freezer.

  • Value of products:  $170.77
  • Paid out of pocket: $122.14
  • Savings of:  $48.63 (or 28%)

Good deals:

Janes chicken strips were on sale this week for $5.99 plus Loblaws had $2 coupons so one box came out to $3.99 instead of $11.99. Score!

Smart Ones were also on sale for $2 each, instead of $4.19 so I got 8 and saved $8.76.

I earned 7,200 points and redeemed 20,000 for a $20 discount.

Compared to this time last year, we’re ahead by approx. $2,700. 🙂

Good week!
