Today's Meijer Shopping Trip

Today I headed over to Meijers. Ragu is on sale this week 3 for $4, Quilted Northern Ultra Plush is on sale for 1/2 price and Frenchs onions is on sale for $2.50. I was able to get 12 jars of Ragu pasta sauce, 5 packages of Quilted Northern, 1 Daisy Sourcream and 1 can of Frenchs onions. I paid $15.05 total. I was able to get all these things by printing coupons from Meijer Mealbox. I also used 2 manufacture coupons for $.50 off Ragu that were in this past Sunday paper, I printed 2 manufacture coupons for $1.00 from Quilted Northern website, I had $.50 manufacture coupon off Daisy Sourcream and a $.50 manufacture coupon for Frenchs onions. All my manufacture coupons doubled to $1.00. Even if I didn't have the manufacture coupons this would be worth doing just with the Meijer promo coupons from Mealbox. I will be printing more and going back at these prices. I saved $44.00 after manufacture coupons, Meijer promo coupons and sale prices.

Christmas Gift Idea

Save 80% at with the code SURPRISE. Pay only $2 for a $25 gift certificate. Hurry up because this code expires Thursday 11/20. These would be perfect holiday gifts and they don't expire for a full year. You can buy a $100 certificate for only $8!

Military Discount at Disney World

I would like to thank Amy H. who submitted to All Ears Weekly Newsletter for this information:

Amy says, "I called Disney resort reservations last week to find out about any resort discounts for December. My husband is in the Marine Corps Reserves, and I asked if there was any military discount. Of course, I also asked about the fall promotion discount, and the Disney Visa free dining, as I was trying to see the least expensive option for this last-minute trip. There is a new military discount for the Disney resorts, and it is much better than the fall discount to the general public! You have to ask for "Thank You Military," and the code, if they can't find it, is FZJ. It is good for check-ins through December 24. The rates for available rooms were very good -- about half off the one moderate I was thinking about."

The Best Disney Vacation Offer In Years!!

Free Nights Package Offer for January-June 2009

Disney is offering a "free nights" vacation package offer. Valid for stays January 4 through June 27, 2009 (Blackout dates are April 5-18).

Buy a 4-night/4 day vacation package, get a 7-night/7-day package. That's 3 FREE hotel nights and 3 extra days on your theme park admission tickets!

An extra bonus travel between January 4 and March 29 and get a $200 Disney Gift Card which can be redeemed for dining, souvenirs and more at Walt Disney World! Gift card is not available for travel after March 29th.

You can stay longer than 7 nights (up to 10 nights) with this package, but there is a maximum of 3 free nights and 3 extra days per ticket, per stay. You can stay less than 7 nights, but you still must purchase 4 nights, so you'll end up with less than 3 free nights/extra days: stay 5 nights, get 1 free; stay 6 nights, get 3 free. Obviously a 7-night stay is the best deal.You can add the Quick Service Dining Plan, the regular Dining Plan, or the Deluxe Dining Plan, but you will pay full price for your dining plan (no free days of dining).

This special package must be booked by 12/20/08. Call 1-407-WDISNEY for this great offer.

Thanks to Mousesavers for this information. (
Flying To Disney
When flying to Disney World I recommend Southwest Airlines. I have found the best deals there. Make sure you download the DING! program to your computer. You will need to choose the airports you will be flying out of. This would be Columbus, Indianapolis and Louisville. You will be alerted of the deals in these areas. These tend to come daily.

Start Small

I know a lot of you out there are saying that you don't have the time to cut coupons. I am saying you can't afford not to! You will see on the varies blogs where people are saving large amounts of money and someday you will be able to do this. Start one coupon at a time. Every Sunday get the paper. Some weekends are better than others. When you get a paper that has numerous coupons for products that you use, get a few papers. This is how you can start stockpiling coupons. Now just get in the habit of using coupons on each trip to the stores.

Looking ahead!
