Win Tickets to Pinkalicious The Musical in Albany!

Pinkalicious

If you have a young one in your life, you have probably heard of Pinkalicious. (She is a huge hit in our house!) I was very excited to learn that “Pinkalicious the Musical” will be coming to the Palace Theater in Albany next month!

The show will be presented by Park Playhouse on November 16, 2014 at 3:00 PM. Tickets are just $20 for adults and $10 for kids. Tickets can be purchased online or at the Palace Theater box office.

Pink Playhouse
Here’s more about the show:

This is the tale, based on the popular book by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann, of Pinkalicious, who can’t stop eating pink cupcakes despite warnings from her parents. Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor’s office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe – a dream come true for this pink loving enthusiast. But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this pink predicament.

Pinkalicious is about learning self-control and the importance of moderation. This fantastic new musical, to be produced on The Palace stage by Albany’s Park Playhouse, will teach students the power of nutrition and leading how leading a healthy life can still be cool.

Price Chopper: Progresso Soup for .50 cents a Can

My family loves Pasta e Fagioli soup and though I have a great recipe and make it often, they can’t get enough of it so this was just HALF of our purchase yesterday at Price Chopper:

Progresso

Yes, we stocked up on soup for those “there’s no food in the house” kind of days- and we got a fantastic deal on them!

Progresso vegetable soups are just $1 a can this week at Price Chopper (note: they are listed as 10 for $10 but you can buy any amount and they will ring up $1 each).

We bought 12 cans at a time and used these coupons:

Three $1.00 off any four Progresso™ products (Print 2 per computer. Also, scan your AdvantEdge card at the i-save machine* in store to see if you get more- I did!) or use this .50 cents off 2 cans coupon from their website (print twice- each will double to $1! Thanks, Terry!)

One $2 off $10 store coupon

Save $1.00 when you buy FOUR (4) CANS any flavor canned Progresso™ Soups..Expires 10/31/2014.Save $1.00.
We rolled our $2 coupon into our next purchase and spent a total of $12 for 24 cans of soup! This is the best deal I have seen on Progresso soup!

CVS: Great Deal on Huggies Diapers

Since we’re in the diapering stage, I’m always on the lookout for good deals on diapers. One of the best places I find to buy them is CVS. This week, I picked up all these for just $7!

CVS Huggies

Huggies diapers are on sale for $8.99 this week, wipes are $2.99 and when you spend $20, you get $5 back in ExtraCare Rewards.

I opted to buy $30 worth of diapers and wipes so I could get an even better deal. Here’s how:

Manufacturer Coupons

I used three coupons for $2 off one package of diapers (from last weekend’s paper or you can print some HERE for $2 off and HERE for $3 off!) and one coupon for .50 cents off wipes (I actually find much better deals on wipes at Price Chopper and ShopRite but I needed a “filler” to get to the $30 mark).

Store Coupons

When I scanned my card at the coupon machine in-store, it printed a CVS coupon for $5 off $30 of diapers/wipes. Scan your card every time to see what you get!

ExtraCare Rewards

I used $12 in ExtraCare Rewards from a previous purchase. I like to “roll” these by using them just for deals that offer more ExtraCare Rewards back. Plus, my store (Glenmont) will take them even after they expire!

Rebate

Final cost was $7.26 AND I got back $5 in Extracare Rewards AND I will submit this REBATE form for another $5 back. So, yes, I actually will MAKE money on this deal in the end. Can’t beat that!

Tent Clearance Sale at Walmart

I stopped by the Walmart Supercenter in Glenmont today while they were setting up a tent sale. I browsed through but didn’t see any great pricing. By the time I was leaving the store, the tent was full of people so I took another peek and saw that the clearance prices from earlier had been marked down significantly.

IMG_0008

I found toys (Legos, Fisher-Price, Barbie and more) marked to at least 50% off. Summer clothing for adults (shorts and tees) were $2 each and there were lots of pools and inflatable summer items for very low prices.

Here are a few of the things I picked up for birthday/Christmas gifts:

LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra eBook: Cinderella for $3 (costs $16.75 on Amazon), Frozen notebook for .25 cents (lots of notebooks and school supplies marked down), swim shoes for $2 (regularly $7).Walmart

 

 

Legos for a birthday gift marked down to $10 (50% off).

And this cute table for the playroom, marked down to $5:

Walmart table

I don’t know if all the Walmart stores are having the same sale but the staff at the Glenmont store said the tent sale would still be on tomorrow and it appeared to me that they kept bringing more items out. (Inside the store were additional items) I also saw kids items such as bubbles, stickers and more for .50 cents, baseball bats for 50% off, packages of socks for $2 and housewares for various prices.

If you find a sale at your store or get something good, let me know in the comments!

Have you tried Food Should Taste Good chips? We were pleasantly surprised to get a box of four bags to sample in the mail (a perk of writing a blog!) but this wasn’t the first time I have had them. I actually buy this brand on a regular basis.
