We have had a family packed few days and to me that takes precedence so this is a little late but it is here now.  We got out to Kroger, CVS, and Rite Aid this week.  I had a few other deals we wanted to grab but a run on gas in our area made us stick close to home to conserve what we had.

**Don’t miss great CVS deals and scenarios for next week!!**

(1) no spill bubble thingy on clearance .74 cents (we have been looking for one of these for years!!)

I did go over budget this week but got excited in Kroger to get Old El Paso Taco Shells for .30 cents each so I bought as many as I had coupons for… I think 14… I did already use 5 of those though serving tacos to a big group that came over.  It was wonderful to do dinner for 14 people and spend $13 total on the meal!!

      Jenny,

      What is the Flavo-Ice hidden ECB? Are those popsicles? Let me know exactly what I need to buy to get the deal! Also, how do you find out about these hidden deals?

    • Jenny

      The Flavo-ice is popscicles the 21 lb box or something large like that is on clearance for 75% off and prints $5 ECB. There aren’t any left at any of the stores that I have been in, and I was testing it last week before posting it. I saw it on another mom saving site like this one but wanted to try it first and it took me a while to find a store that had any (and I got the last box). Sorry. but if you see it go for it!! I find these just by surfing the internet or looking on slickdeals but try to always test them before putting them on here.
