Best of Menards 12/26/11

It's been awhile since I've done a post for Menards so we'll quickly cover a couple of things about them. They accept coupons, run regular sales, and offer in-store rebates. For rebate items you will receive a voucher on the end of you receipt (so save it!) you'll then go online, or mail it in. 4-6 weeks after that you will receive a Rebate check in the mail good for the amount of rebates you turned in. A little slower than other stores methods, but they offer a wide variety of products. From home improvement, pet, toys, and food items. These rebates can add up quickly, and after shopping there for a month or two you should be able to start using your rebates to buy more rebate items, and potentially shop for free from then out! 
Okay, on to the best of their ad!

Sale from 12/26 - 1/1/12

Boot Tray - $2.50 - $2.50 rebate = Free after rebate ( limit 2 trays per household)

Clear Safety Glasses - $2 - $2 rebate = Free after rebate ( limit 3 pairs per household)

Mini Storage Bins - .50 - .50 rebate = Free after rebate ( limit 10 bins per household)

20 pc Super Hooks - $3 - $3 rebate = Free after rebate ( limit 4 boxes per household)

7 pc. Hex key set - $2.50 - $2.50 rebate = Free after rebate ( limit 2 sets per household)

2 pk. mouse traps - .50 - .50 rebate = Free after rebate (limit fifteen 2 pks per household)

Glass watering sphere - $2 - $2 rebate = Free after rebate (limit 4 spheres per household)

Hinge pin door stop - .75 - .75 rebate = Free after rebate (limit 6 door stops per household)

10 pk. door stop - $5 - $5 rebate = Free after rebate (limit 10 pks per household)

20" Irwin Hand Saw - $10 - $10 rebate = Free after rebate (limit 2 saws per household)

Deluxe hinge pin door stop - $2 - $2 rebate = Free after rebate (limit 4 door stops per household)

Crystal dish soap - $1.29 - $1 rebate = .29 after rebate (limit 2 bottles per household)

Remember that you will pay full price out of pocket, and then use your rebates (when you get them in the mail) on the your next purchase after receiving them. Again, this will not happen immediately like Walgreens, but if you have the patience it could be a great money saving idea down the road. As usual there are many other rebates offered in the ad, I just choose the freebies, and cheapies for you. I suggest reading their entire ad, especially if you are in the process of remodeling, or plan on it. Happy bargain hunting everyone!

Exciting Changes Coming!

While I know it seems I've given little thought to this blog over these past few months the exact opposite is the truth. As some you know I work full-time, have a toddler, and attend online college full-time. My school schedule has picked up this semester, and for the foreseeable future, and I've had to reevaluate my goals for this blog, and what is plausible for me with the time I have.
What does this mean for Kansas Coupons? Well, I'm going to tell you! From now until February of 2012 I will be making many changes to the blog. Here are a few:
  • I will be changing over to a hosted site - I've heard stories of bloggers on blogspot being shutdown with no reason given and do not want this to happen! Also, I will have more freedom to add pages, themes, and well, everything!
  • I will no longer be able to do the many deals that are posted everyday - Frankly there are many other great sites you can go to to find these, and I no longer have the time it takes to do this. Keep reading though, and I'll tell what I will do!
  • I will be focusing more on "couponing" itself - I've noticed a lack of help for beginners, and explanation of the many things that go along with couponing on other sites. I intend to fill this void, and not just for beginners but for veterans also.
  • I will be doing reviews - I will do coupon site reviews, reviews on the things needed and helpful to couponing, books, space saving items for stockpiles, and anything else that touches on coupons and couponing.
  • I will make an in-depth beginners guide - While many sites offer a beginners page, many just cover the same same basics over and over again. I would like to cover more so that my beginners page can be a one-stop spot for new couponers!
  • I will still do the Best of Menards and Couponing posts - I don't ever see Menards really mentioned on the other sites, and love the rebate program offered at their store. Of course what would a blog be without great content!
  • Things I might do - Begin a Youtube channel with helpful videos, add a forum for coupon exchanges and for people to meet and talk all things coupons.
These are my thoughts on the improved site, and some I will begin doing immediately. Like the Best of Menards, and couponing posts. I will also still share great deals I find online. Right now I'm in the planning stage of this change, and in January I will begin getting my domain name, hosting company, and designing the page. Hopefully (fingers crossed) February will see the new and improved Kansas Coupons site!!!! I'm so excited to do this, and hope that all of you will enjoy the new site that much more. If you have any ideas, or suggestions on what you would love to see on the new site Let Me Know! I want your input, and want to make this a site that addresses YOUR needs, especially if it's something you're not finding elsewhere. Merry Christmas everyone, and Happy New Year!

To Stockpile or Not To Stockpile

A recent decision I made has made me think an article about stockpiling. With the recent attention due to a certain tv show, there are a lot of negative perceptions about stockpiling floating around. Plus there are space issues, and of course upkeep to take into account. With all this some people debate the wisdom of a stockpile, and this article is to show how important even a small stockpile can be.
I have been couponing for about 9 months, and since day one I have diligently been building my stockpile. I took a corner of a room we underutilized and added my shelves, cleared out some cabinets (all they really had was stuff I didn't want to deal with), and added a small shelf to my bathroom. Now, while I have used the items in there on a pretty regualr basis, that is it's point after all, I had not every had to live completely off of it. Until this past payday.
Due to outside circumstances I had to make the choice between paying a bill, and buying groceries. It's a disgusting feeling having to make that decision, and it wasn't one I enjoyed..... at first. Then I remembered, hey! I have a stockpile. So, I went and took an inventory of everything I'd managed to stock, and realized that we could safely live off our stockpile for two weeks. Heck, if I had a freezer and could stockpile more meat we could've lived off of it even longer! So, while I made the decision to not buy groceries, and pay our bills instead. I DID NOT have to make the decision between EATING and paying my bills. That is a big difference in decisions.
Hopefully by now you are starting to see how a stockpile makes sense, and can truly be blessing for you and your family. The next step is to go over the basics of stockpiling. First is to look around your house for the space you need. Americans are space happy, we never think we have enough rooms, and are programmed to think we need large homes to fill our space needs. Really though, it's not about how much space you have, but how you use the space you DO have. Chances are if you look around you will find space. Maybe you don't have the room for a Krazy Coupon Lady stockpile, but you have room for YOUR stockpile. Do you have an empty space in your bathroom for a small shelf? Maybe a corner of a room that currently holds a piece of furniture that you really don't use, an unused dresser, closet, well you get the idea.
Got a guest bedroom? Well how often is anyone really in it? Add some shelves, and if you don't want your guests to see you toilet paper as they fall asleep buy some pretty clearence fabric, and attach it with velcro strips to the shelves. This hides their contents, and can be an added design feature of your room. Look in your kitchen cabinets and I'll bet you'll see that what's in there only goes to about half the height of the cabinet. This is where cabinet, or closet, organizers really come in handy. They help you utilize every inch of the space, and make it work for you. In the world of stockpiling, dead space is a no no.
Next is knowing what to stockpile. This goes hand and hand with your space availability. If you don't have a lot of room, make a list of what you use the most, and what your pay the most for. Health and Beauty products are some of the most expensive items to buy. Have a small stockpile of cheap (or free) toothepaste, bodywash, etc. on hand and you will save yourself a lot of money right there. Then look at the food staples you consistently use and need, and go from there. Of course you also have to know at what price you should stockpile.
The rule is 75% off retail price then stockpile at least 3 months worth of that product. If the savings are more than that, or free, then feel free to stockpile for 6 months or so. Remember, if you don't use everything and it was dirt cheap, you can always donate to your local food banks, and churches. My exception to this is meat and produce. Because you almost never see coupons for these items, 25%-50% savings off retail are when you should stockpile and freeze these items.
Now you have seen the benefits of having a stockpile, and know some of the basics. Your last step is to build your stockpile up. Use your coupons and sales to get those rock bottom prices, and that will come. If the recent economic crisis has taught us anything it's that the line between doing well financially, and suddenly taking a huge hit financially is a very thin one. This way if you ever have to make the decisions between buying groceries, and paying bills; you can make it with peace of mind.

Shark Steam Mop Only $48.54 @ Amazon

Haven't had much time to post deals this week, but I couldn't pass up sharing this deal! I've never seen these @ this price before! Amazon has the Euro-Pro Shark S3101 Electric Steam Mop on sale for $48.54!! I bought one of these before my son was born and I love it! They're usually $99, so that's over $50 off! Plus they save money because you don't need to buy any cleaners, or disposable pads, only water, and the pads are washable. Eventually you will have to buy replacement pads, but mine lasted almost two years, and the replacements were only $20! When I had the other kind I had to buy expensive disposable pads every month. I like knowing that my floors are clean, and don't have any nasty chemicals that my family walks on, or breathes in.

Drugstore Stockpile $16 list 9.19.11

I actually really liked the Walgreens ad this week, and some of their rebate offers, so I decided to do another Drugstore Stockpile list. Just to go over the Walgreens basics: you can use one Walgreens coupon AND one Mfg coupon on the same item, you receive 1 Register Reward per transaction on that item. So if you buy two medicines that come with a $2 RR in the same transaction you will only receive ONE $2 RR, if you did TWO transactions with one medicine in each then you would get one $2 RR per transaction, which equals TWO. If you use that $2 RR you got on the first transaction to pay for the second medicine in the next transaction you will NOT get another RR. Okay, now that that's covered, let's continue onto the deals. I broke this into three transactions, and I think you'll be pleased what you can get for $16 this week (I know I am :)!
Transaction #1
1 Nightime Cold 'n Cough 4 Kids - $4.99
Pay $4.99 out of pocket and Receive $4.99 RR
Final Price: FREE after RR

1 Blistex Cold & Allergy - $2
Pay $2 OOP and Receive $2 RR
Final Price: FREE after RR
Total for Trans. 1 = $6.99 out of pocket, Received $6.99 in RR

Transaction #2
1 Nightime Cold 'n Cough 4 Kids - $4.99
Pay $4.99 out of pocket and Receive $4.99 RR
Final Price: FREE after RR

1 Blistex Cold & Allergy - $2
Pay $2 OOP and Receive $2 RR
Final Price: FREE after RR
Total for Trans. 2 = $6.99 out of pocket, Received $6.99 in RR

Transaction #3
5 Royal jellos - $1
Use Walgreens in-ad coupon for 5/$1
Final Price: $1

3 cans Campbell soup - .79 each with in ad walgreens coupon (limit 3)
- .40/3 coupon
Final Price: $1.77 all three ( .59 each)

2 Aussie or Herbal Essences shampoo/conditioner - 2 for $6
Buy 2 Receive $2 RR

Final Price: .99 after RR

4 cans Geisha mushrooms - 2/$1 with in-ad coupon
Final Price: $2

Total cost is $15.75
Use the $13.98 in RR's you have from the first two transactions
Total Out of Pocket for Transaction 3 = $1.77!!!!
Plus still have $7 RR for next week :) That's what I would call a good trip. Just remember that this my list of things I need, this is just to help show you what a little bit of money can do for your stockpile! Feel free to tweek it to your needs, and happy bargain hunting everyone.

Oral B Toothebrush & Crest Toothepaste only .99 for Both @ Target

Okay so here's a great deal on Crest toothepaste AND Oral B toothebrushes at Target this week. There's a couple ways you can do this, but don't worry I'll tell you both and let you decide. Target has a deal going this week that when you buy ANY Crest toothepaste $2.99 or more you get a FREE Oral B Indicator toothbrush. In the SS insert last week there was a $2/1 Crest, Scope or Oral B which you can use with this deal to score both items for only .99 if you use one of these. However, IF your Target store will allow you to use a coupon on the "free" toothebrush, you can use another $2/1 coupon and get both for FREE! The only thing I don't like about that deal, is you lose $1 on your coupon because most Targets won't pay overage, and adjust the coupon down to the price of the item. Hey, it's up to you and what your store will let you do though!

Crest Toothepast 4.8 - 8 oz - $2.99 (they do have a couple different types for that price)
- $2/1 Crest, Scope or Oral B (SS 9/11)
FREE Oral B Indicator toothebrush with the purchase of $2.99 and up Crest Toothepaste
Final Price: .99 for both

Thanks Totally Target

Shopping the Sales Get Your Groceries Without Coupons

A shopping trip to Dillons a few weeks ago reminded me of something I've been doing for quite awhile now and underestimated (or forgotten) how much this simple step was saving me money. That is I simply starting "shopping the sales". You may be wondering what that means! Well, it simply means that when my stores sale ad comes out every week I make my grocery list, and plan my meals around it. Instead of making my list, and if I was lucky one or two items were on sale that week; I go solely (well mostly) by that list. This may not save you 75% - 90% like using coupons, but it can still save you around 25% - 30%. Any savings at the grocery store translate to more food for the same cost, or the same amount of food with more money left over.
Let's say that you are the typical shopper, you make your list (probably the same thing it was last week), grab your money, and head to the store. Maybe one or two items on that list are on sale, but most you simply pay full price for. Then you walk out of the store mumbling about high prices. So let's try something different. You wait until your store circular comes out, see whats on sale for a good price, make your list, grab your money and shop. While you still think prices are high, you've manage to add another two or three bags to you trip! Example: pasta is normally 1.25 and it's on sale for $1, plus pasta sauce are on sale this week for .75 less than usual, so you go out and buy 7 of each. You've saved yourself $8.75, and hey that's the diapers you needed for the week. I don't suggest "stockpiling" with this approach, unless something is dirt cheap. There are two exceptions to this: meat and produce, so let's talk about that.
Here's a scenario: chicken breasts are normally $5 a package (yikes!) you notice that they're on sale for $3 this week. Decide how much you need for around three months, and freeze it when you get home. Meat is the one thing I've noticed that has sale cycles like clockwork. A sale cycle is how often something goes on sale for it's rock bottom price, like 3 months or weeks. In my area I've noticed that hamburger goes on sale at one store or another for $1.78 lb about once every month. That's .40lb less than I pay (at the cheapest) when it's not on sale. If I buy ten pounds that's $4 I saved on that items alone! The same principles apply to produce. Fruit and vegetables also tend to go on sale regularly within their season. Most can be frozen, made into freezer jam, and cut up to enjoy later when they aren't in season and twice as expensive.
One last thing to mention is that you will have to step outside your cooking comfort zone, and be willing to try new things. In this the internet is your best friend. There are tons of great sites that have millions of recipes; some even allow you to type in the ingredients, and it will pull up recipes that go with them!   
So how much can you really save doing this? Here is one last example for you: at the before mentioned trip, I gave my keys (with my loyalty card) to my hubbie to put our son in the truck during checkout. After realizing what I had done, I ran out to get them while the checker finished my order. Without my card being scanned none of the sale prices had been taken off, and I was a little surprised at the $170 total! Once my card was scanned though the price quickly dropped $40, and that was before coupons! I don't know about you, but $40 dollars is a lot in our budget tight house.

Dillons is having a great P&G specific sale this week!! When you buy and 4 participating P&G items you get $4 off. So this list does not contain any food items, but cleaning supplies, health and beauty items and the rest are usually more expensive anyways! All items on this list are from the Buy 4 Get $4 off deal, so remember if you want to tweek the list a little to buy in multiples of four AND that all P&G coupons are "limit 4 like coupons per transaction".

The four shampoo and conditioners can you the same price as all of this if you pay full retail! What a wonderful deal. Hopefully they will run this sale for two weeks, as I've noticed that Dillons seems to do with these sales. I went entirely off of the ad, but you might want to take all your P&G coupons with you, because I'm sure there are more products on sale they did not include. All these coupons, except for the Aussie q, came from the P&G insert that came out last Sunday. Have a great day everyone, and happy bargain hunting.
