Small clearance shopping trips 3/30 - Babies R Us, Sears & Michaels

This might be my favorite clearance find ever! Sears has the OXO Good Grips Red pop set marked down to $11.97! The original price (& price still currently on Sears.com) is $64.99! I'm sure that price in inflated some, but I've never seen these OXO sets this cheap. I have been wanting some for a few years so I am sooo excited to finally have 10 containers:)

You can check inventory at your local Sears stores on Sears.com but make sure to call & check if they are really in stock before driving out. You should find the clearance price at all Sears locations. I was able to find 1 store that was nice enough to put these on hold for me, but most stores will not hold clearance merchandise.

Babies R Us is offering an additional 30% off all clearance clothes and shoes through April 1st. I was hoping to find a bunch of cheap winter clothes for next year, but everything was still too much for me. Most of the clothes were still $12+.

I did find these Carter's PJs for $4.48 & hair clips for $1.40.

Lastly we headed to Michaels so I could use the 50% off 1 Regular Priced item coupon available today only. It was extremely hard to find something for the kids that wasn't on sale. I did finally find some painting paper for $1.99 after coupon that will be thrown in with their Easter basket items.

3 small shopping trips - CVS, Giant Eagle & Target + mail day 3/29

I wanted to check the price of the Barbie items at Target tonight to see if that would be the best place to use the new $5 off $20 Barbie purchase coupon. While there I noticed they had marked down the Disney Princess Vanity to 70%! After using my 50% coupon from the Target ad I only paid $13.49 for a $90 toy! 

If you are interested in checking out your local store to see if they have it 70%, here is the picture I took Sunday of it. If it is at 70%, you should find it priced at $26.98:

Giant Eagle:
OOP: $.30
Savings of: $7.04

I am still debating on if I want to do the P&G FuelPerks deal. I have it worked out to pay around $8 OOP & earn $.20 fuel perks, but I'm not sure if I want to spend that much...hopefully they'll still have everything in stock if I do decide to take advantage of the deal:) I had a feeling the Blistex would sell out quickly, so I stopped by tonight to pick it up. My store only had like 10 left after I took these 2. There are also $.55 peelies on most of the Stove Top boxes at my store, so keep your eyes peeled for those! They do double, so it makes for a better deal than the $.50 from the 3/25 Sunday paper!

2 Blistex $.69 each 
 -used 2 $.35 coupons from the Sunday paper - expire 3/31! (doubled to $.69 each)
=2 for FREE!

2 Stove Top stuffing's $1.25 each
 -used 2 $.55 peelies found on the boxes (doubled to $1.10 each)
=$.15 a box!

OOP: $.66
Savings of: $2

Nothing too exciting....I just used my FREE candy or beverage item CVS coupon. The coupon takes off the full $2 value, so I wanted to make sure I got enough to cover the full value :)
