Plotting and Planning

Why is my purchase of the FREE Sabra Hummus 10oz pending with Ibotta?  I submitted my receipt to Ibotta around 9:30 am, Friday morning, and it’s still pending. In fact, this week, I’ve had to submit Trouble Tickets to Ibotta because their app kept getting it wrong like when I submitted my receipt for the $4.52 Money Maker Burt’s Bees Adult Toothpaste, the scanner found two toothpaste but I only got credit for one toothpaste. Also, for whatever reason, the Ibotta app would not accept my Walmart receipt for the FREE Laughing Cow Blends.

Make sure that you are getting full credit for all of your purchases!

Over the last week, I’ve increased my walking time and by late yesterday afternoon, I was taking an afternoon nap. I was tired but let me back up.  I had went to Sprouts for the Chosen Foods Guacamole for $1.99. They were out of the regular guacamole so I grabbed the spicy guacamole which wasn’t really spicy at all, it just had a slight kick to it. When I got home, I made a quick omelette for lunch and I topped my omelette with the guacamole and it was so good.

Next Thursday afternoon, I will have my second vaccination – 🥂🎉🎊🎂🎈- which means that on Friday, I will have scheduled posts. If I am feeling well on Friday then you will also see live posts. My mom and my middle brother got kind of sickly (body aches, fever, chills, headache) for about 24 hours after their Pfizer shot so I’d rather be prepared than have y’all looking at a blank page next Friday.

Previously, I had written that I have been getting a FREE 1 point Shopkick everyday that I opened the app but for some reason, last week, I wasn’t getting FREE 1 point Shopkick and then suddenly on Monday, it started back up again.

Also, make sure to read my $8 Money Maker Listerine Mouthwash 1 Liter and the $3.50 Money Maker C4 Energy Drink (I will be doing this deal again) posts.  The Money Maker deals helps cover when we do deals that have actual out of pocket for things like taxes, it’s all relative.

So, I have not been buying the Sunday papers for the last 2 or 3 weeks and I wrote a I think I am going to stop getting the Sunday paper post explaining why I wasn’t buying the paper and I am so glad that I stopped doing it because on Monday or Tuesday, when I receive the Save coupon inserts in my mailbox, I basically got nothing but dog food coupons and there was no Unilever insert.  Thank goodness for the printable and digital coupons!

Speaking of the inserts, on Sunday, there will be a Save and Smart Source coupon inserts in the newspapers or depending upon where you live, it will be delivered to your mailbox .

If you didn’t stop by CVS, this week, then go to your CVS account and print or send to card your CVS coupons.

It’s Saturday…enjoy your day!

    Grab the free graham crackers!!! 😋 You’ve probably still got some free Monopoly items to pick up anyway (I know I do).

    Does anybody know whether Just for U cash at Vons applies to CRV fees here in California? I got a couple of the Just for U cash coupons from monopoly, and would rather just use them to pay CRV for all the free water bottles I won, if possible.
