GIVEAWAY: Win this "Raid Jill's Skincare Stockpile" grab bag!

Disclosure: This giveaway is sponsored by me. All of the skincare products featured in the giveaway were provided to me free of charge from CVS/pharmacy, Olay, and Puritan's Pride.

Part of "blogger life" is receiving great samples of products from a variety of companies and brands. I'm a huge skincare junkie, as you may already know..! And, as much as I love trying new products, I've also learned over the years that some products just don't work for me -- no matter how much I might like them to. Retinols? Great for renewing skin... unless you spend a lot of time in the sun (which I do.) Lip products with sunscreen in them don't agree with me either, but I know a lot of people swear by them.

So, when I get new products to try and sample, I scour the ingredients lists like the fiendish ingredients nerd I am... and if there are products that I think won't agree with my skin, I stash them in a box on my office shelf. And then..?

Well, it seems a little silly to keep brand-new products in my stockpile that I won't use, so I'd love to share them with you! One lucky reader will get to (virtually) raid my skincare stockpile and take home a variety of popular skincare items!

This Skincare Stockpile grab bag contains:

  • Olay Regenerist Filling & Sealing Wrinkle Treatment ($19.99 retail)
  • CVS/pharmacy Accelerated Wrinkle Repair Serum ($18.99 retail)
  • Lumene Complete Rewind Visible Wrinkle Eraser ($23.99 retail)
  • Puritan's Pride Retinol Cream ($9.59 retail)
  • Two CVS Sport SPF 30 Lip Balms ($1.99 each at retail)

The total value of this assortment is more than $76.00! Jump-start your skincare routine by sampling and enjoying all of these brand-new, full-size retail versions of popular skincare items.

For a chance to win, simply post a comment below!

This "Raid Jill's Skincare Stockpile" giveaway begins today, July 24th, 2014, and runs for one week. The giveaway will end on July 30th, 2014 at 11:59pm CST, and on July 31st, one winner will be chosen via a random number generator!

Food companies quietly dropping GMO ingredients

NPR has an interesting article about brands quietly dropping genetically modified ingredients. One would think this would be a huge selling point for brands and that they'd be shouting this information from the rooftops, but according to the story, they're not:


General Mills' original plain Cheerios are now GMO-free, but the only announcement was in a company blog post in January. And you won't see any label on the box highlighting the change. Grape Nuts, another cereal aisle staple, made by Post, is also non-GMO. And Target has about 80 of its own brand items certified GMO-free.

Megan Westgate runs the Non-GMO Project, which acts as an independent third-party verifier of GMO-free products, including Target's. She says her organization knows about "a lot of exciting cool things that are happening that for whatever strategic reasons get kept pretty quiet."

But just because they're testing the water doesn't mean most mainstream companies are ready to start publicizing their changes.

Nathan Hendricks, an agricultural economist at Kansas State University, says big food producers are trying to gauge what direction consumers are headed in. "Ultimately," he says, "these big companies aren't just friends with Monsanto or something. They want to make a profit, and they want to be able to do what's going to make them money." So they'd better have a product line in the works if consumer sentiment starts to shift more heavily toward GMO-free food.

Advertised and unadvertised deal shopping at Meijer

I went to Meijer today to check out prices on this week's sunscreen deal for you and to shop the sales. I found a few unadvertised offers to share too!

First up: Sunscreen Catalina Deal

Banana Boat and Hawaiian Tropic sunscreens are part of a "Buy $25, Get $10 Catalina" offer this week at Meijer.

My Algonquin Meijer was out of every Hawaiian Tropic product other than the after-sun aloe, so I collected prices for Banana Boat:

Banana Boat Sport 8oz. and 10oz. bonus bottles: $6.79
Banana Boat Kids 8oz. tubes: $7.79
Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate 6oz. bottles: $7.99
Banana Boat Triple Defense Men 6oz. bottles: $7.99

Ibotta has four different $1.25 offers running on these four varieties of Banana Boat. The 6/29 SS has a $1 coupon, and here's a $1 printable.

With four $1 coupons, you could buy one of each ($30.56.) Use four $1 coupons. Pay $26.56 and get a $10 Catalina. Get $1.25 back for each item from Ibotta. That's $11.56 for four, or $2.89 each!

Because my store had the 10-ounce bonus-size Sport bottles, I opted to do the deal a different way so I could take home more sunscreen.

I bought three Banana Boat Sport 10oz. bottles and one Banana Boat Kids 8oz. tube. I used four $1 coupons. I paid $24.16 and got a $10 Catalina. I got $2.50 back from Ibotta, so that's $11.66 for four, or about $2.92 each. For the extra .03 per bottle, I ended up with 38 ounces of sunscreen vs. 30 over the original scenario -- almost like getting another free bottle!


Unadvertised Orange Juice Deal

I saw shelf tags near the orange juice advertising a "Buy $10, Get $3 Catalina" offer on Meijer brand juices. I bought five 59-ounce cartons of Meijer OJ for $2 each. I paid $10 and got a $3 Catalina. That's $7 for five cartons, or $1.40 each!


Unadvertised Bath Tissue Deal

I spotted a "Spend $10, Save $3" ecoupon on Mperks for Meijer bath tissue. I bought one Meijer 6 Mega Roll bath tissue for $6.29 (equivalent to 24 regular rolls - they are some seriously large rolls!). I also bought one Meijer 6 Double Roll bath tissue for $3.99. That's $10.28 -- after the ecoupon, I paid $7.28. If we look at the regular roll equivalencies, this works out to about .20 per regular roll. That's a good price.


Advertised Deals

I also did the "Buy 8" sale on Keebler products. I bought four $1.69 Keebler Club Crackers and Town House Pretzel Thins. And, I bought four $1.49 Keebler cookies. I used two $1-off-2 cracker coupons from the 6/29 RP, and I used four $1.50 cookie coupons from Kellogg's Family Rewards. This dropped the crackers to $1.19 per box, and all of the cookies were free.

Lastly, I did a round of "Buy 10 for $10, Get the 11th FREE." I bought nine Old El Paso taco shells for $1 each. I also bought two bags of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers for $1 each. I used three $1-off-3 printable coupons for the taco shells. I paid $8 for everything -- like getting the taco shells for about .66 per box, paying for one $1 Goldfish and getting the next bag free!

Now I've got the $10 sunscreen Catalina and the $3 juice Catalina for my next trip to Meijer...


Ace Hardware, no one wants cancer-causing toothbrushes.

I was pretty excited when I saw the new Ace Hardware ad that came in today's newspaper. It's filled with coupons for all sorts of bargain-priced items! As I flipped through it this afternoon, I noted some of the items I wanted to pick up:

  • A 6-pack of toothbrushes that come with a toothbrush stand and drinking cup: $1.29, limit 4
  • A 3-pack of kitchen brushes is .99
  • Plastic scoops are .99. My husband wanted one of these to keep in the icemaker in the freezer.
    (I'm not sure what kind of ice needs he's got lately that involve an entire scoop of ice, but that's another story...)

I headed over to Ace tonight and bought everything. I thought the toothbrush sets were a particularly good deal -- I planned to toss one of those in our camping tote and keep an entire set of toothbrushes for the family together. I also grabbed a second plastic scoop, thinking it would be a great thing to keep in the dog food bag instead of the plastic cup that's in there now.

And, of course, I decided to blog about these deals too! I set everything up on the patio table and started taking photographs. That's when I noticed something strange on the tags of the plastic scoops:


New Super-Couponing Tips column: Vacation savings: To drive or to fly?

This week's syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column is entitled "Vacation savings: To drive or to fly?" Here's an excerpt:


"With summer vacation season in full swing, I’d like to devote some column space to talking about travel and vacation savings. One of the benefits of my being so devoted to couponing is being able to save or spend the money we’ve saved in other areas of life. We love to travel, and our family’s vacations are always planned with a budget in mind. Whether we’re camping in tents at a local conservation area or flying to one of the coasts, I’m always looking for the most economical ways for our family to see the world and make memories together.

 

"When I was a child, my family took a lot of road trips. Getting to our destination took several days filled with long drives, stops at roadside attractions and educational experiences. (I’ve long joked that my Dad couldn’t drive us anywhere without stopping to tour a cave or a power dam. We always had to see at least one educational spot on every trip!)"

Jewel-Osco has updated its coupon policy

Jewel-Osco recently updated its coupon policy. I've heard rumblings of this from a couple of readers who saw the new policy in-store, but Jewel has put the policy online now for everyone to read.

The biggest and most notable changes:


- Jewel-Osco does not accept ANY coupons issued by another retailer. (This means Catalinas from other stores will no longer be accepted.)

- Coupons with the verbiage “Redeemable only at” or “Redeemable at…” [Competitor name]: CANNOT be redeemed at Jewel-Osco. (Yes, I'm thinking of the many Coupons.com printables that state "Redeemable at Walmart."

- For all coupons, follow limitations on quantities or the number of purchases per customer.


Interestingly, Jewel-Osco hosts Coupons.com coupons on its own website, and some of those printable coupons state "Reedemable at Walmart" on them. With the policy change, Jewel may find itself hosting printable offers on its own site that shoppers cannot redeem at Jewel.


My search for the perfect family camping tent

Note: I recently purchased the Ozark Trail 10-person dome tent. This post contains affiliate links.

I love to camp. My parents were (and still are!) avid campers. My earliest childhood memory is camping in my mom and dad's big blue canvas cabin tent. Incredibly, that big canvas tent is still around too, more than 40 years after they bought it. A well-cared-for canvas tent will last almost forever! I've borrowed their tent a few times over the years, but it weighs at least 70 pounds, and its box is nearly the size of a casket.

Years ago, when I got out of college, I started looking for the perfect tent. As I'm sure you know, I research everything to a fault before I make a purchase..! Tents come in all shapes, sizes, and prices. As with nearly everything I buy, I wanted the best quality item for the most reasonable price.

After considering all of the criteria, I narrowed my list down to the following "wish list:"

  • Dome-style or tunnel-style nylon tent
  • A tent with four poles or fewer
  • A tent I could set up alone in under 10 minutes
  • A tent that didn't require guy lines
  • A tent with a full rainfly
  • Bonus: A tent with a vestibule door

After helping friends set up their multi-room, multi-wing McMansion tents, I knew I didn't want a tent that was complex or difficult to set up. (One friend's crazy Y-shaped tent comes to mind -- working together, it took us more than 45 minutes to pitch! No thanks.) Dome and tunnel-style tents are self-supporting, with one large central room. Some tents require staked-out guy lines for support, but self-supporting tents don't. They don't have a lot of poles, and they're pretty easy and quick to set up. I wanted a nylon tent -- they're lightweight, and they pack down to very small sizes.

Great deal on 5-gallon Rubbermaid water cooler: $12.99 at Menards!

As it's summer and I have camping on the brain, I thought I'd share a great deal I spotted in the Menards ad! This 5-gallon Rubbermaid water cooler is just $12.99 at Menards this week. It's $17.99 with a $5 mail-in rebate, limit 2.

I mention this because I was looking for a deal on these recently -- we have a 3-gallon water cooler that's suffering the same fate as our old tent -- not quite large enough for our family. And, I was looking at prices on these recently. Look and see how much this cooler is on Amazon right now..!

Seriously, go look. You could buy three of these coolers for the price of the one on Amazon! (Granted, the Menards cooler is green, not orange, and it's got a Menards logo on it... but it's the same cooler. For 1/3rd the price, I'll take it.)

Also, a note to those who shop in my neck of the woods: The Carpentersville store is sold out of these. (I've learned to call ahead!) Woodstock had 9 this morning.

    Black bean five-layer dip (28 oz. – $7.98 value)

My Super-Couponing® live workshops have continually broken attendance records for venues hosting my popular grocery-savings classes, which attract tens of thousands of people each year.

Camping gear clearance at Cabela's!

Have you been camping this summer? We've already camped a few times, and my boys are planning the menu for our next camping trip as we speak! I'm a sucker for camping gadgets and gear -- especially bargain-priced gear!

Cabela's is having a clearance sale on a bunch of camping and outdoor gear items! Here are some good buys:

This green Coleman 48-quart cooler is on sale for $19.99, down from $39.99! This is a great price.
(For comparison's sake, Amazon is selling the same cooler in blue for $30.48 right now!)

The Camper's Dream ice cream ball is on sale for $19.99, down from $26.99. I don't have one of these (yet!) but I've used one at scout camp with my kids. Load ice and salt in one side, milk and sugar in the other. The kids roll and kick the ball around, and 20 minutes later, you've got homemade ice cream. Fun!

Energizer Disney headlamps are $2.88! My kids have (boy versions) of these which I paid around $5 for. They are great for night hikes and exploring in the dark. (And, if you've got daughters, they don't have to settle for a plain old black headlamp..!)

Ship-to-store is free at Cabela's.
