Congrats South Middle Dance & Cheer!

Just a quick Congratulations to South Middle Dance and Cheer squads for winning the competition today!  All of the performances were wonderful; great job!  I think my favorite part had to be seeing all of the squads come together in a sort of "flash mob" while the judges tallied the scores.  Kudos to the South Dad for fully supporting his "south" end of the county!

Staples: Charmin 16 rolls for $6

If you're in need of toilet paper, you may want to take advantage of $6 packages of Charmin this week at Staples. 

Here's the thing to look for in the store.  Check the "sheets per roll" on the package to make sure you are buying the 308 sheet packs.  There is a nearly identical package with only 264 sheets per roll. 
Both packages say 16 Double Rolls = 32 Regular Rolls.  I am guessing that Charmin has lowered the number of sheets per roll.

To the left is a screen print of the Charmin in the sale ad.  I can just make out the barcode as beginning with a 2 (the second set of numbers).  And I just happen to have both 264 and 308 sheet packages of Charmin for referrence. 
Here are the barcodes to help you....
308 sheets (584.5 sq. ft.) = 37000-23462
264 sheets (501 sq. ft.) = 37000-50911
Of course, the package could have changed.

To make your coupon journey more fulfilling... you can also earn 25% back in Staples Rewards if you shop between now and Wednesday (1/25).  The picture on the right says 1/28, but the printed coupon does say 1/25 so I'd go with that date.  I was able to print my coupon from the weekly ad page on  You won't receive your rewards until August.

Now you may be wondering, how do I know if I'm getting a good deal on my toilet paper purchase?  I'm sure there is some grand mathematical formula you can use, but the easiest advice I could find is from a reader's comment in the Cuckoo for Coupon Deals post about this Charmin sale at Staples.  From this point forward it will be called The Toilet Paper Rule:  Stock up when the price is equal to or less than the square foot.  In this case, the 308 package has a square foot of 584.5  At $6 per package, the price is just slightly higher than The Toilet Paper Rule, but it's pretty close.  If you use the 25-cent coupon from the 1/1 P&G, you're price does go "less than" the square foot making it truly a stock up price!

Dollar General: Save $5 on Friday (1/27)

I'll have to see if there is a new sale ad beginning tomorrow to go along with the Save $5 on your $25 purchase day this Friday (1/27)!

Remember it's Friday NOT Saturday this week!

Kroger: Game Day Greats Mega Event

Save $5 when you buy 10 participating items this week at Kroger during the "Game Day Greats" Mega Event! 

And take advantage of the "Deal of the Day", too!
And don't forget to double check the eCoupons!

Kmart: Purchase Ground Beef, Get Free Pasta and Sauce

It's days like this that make me really miss getting the Kmart ad in my mail box on Fridays!  I really dislike the new version of the online ad. 

But, I do like this Pasta Meal Deal.  Buy a package of ground beef for $2.99 and get the pasta and spaghetti sauce FREE!  Limit one per transaction. 

This is going on my shopping list!

CVS: Milk for $2.99 with a $1 ECB

CVS is often the best place to get your milk. 

This week pay $2.99 per gallon and earn a $1 Extra Care Buck. 

These are usually "limit 2". 

This is on my shopping list this week!

The Toilet Paper Rule

I'm posting this for quick and easy reference! 

According to a reader's comment on Cuckoo for Coupon Deals, there is an easy way to know what is the "stock up" price for toilet paper.

Stock up when the price is
equal to or less than the square foot.

Easy Example: 16 ct Charmin Basic with 584.5 square feet.
I want to see a price of around $5.84 per package.
Sale price of $6 minus 25-cent coupon = $5.75 **stockup**
