FREE iCarly Episode Download and $5 - $6 In Coupons In Select Mead Notebooks @ Target

I finally got a chance to visit Target today and found a select few surprises in the Back-To-School area. A few notebooks (specially marked) had coupons for $5-$6 in coupons for MEAD and Scotch products. The MEAD 1-Subject notebooks (retail for $1) had $6 worth in coupons inside: $1/1 Scotch Restickable Shapes, Strips or Tabs; $1/1 Scotch Pop-Up Tape Dispenser; $1/2 Scotch Ultra Edge Non-Stick Scissors; $1.50/1 Scotch Poster Tape; $0.50/1 Mead Vinyl Binder; $1/1 Mead Five Star Flex NoteBinder. All coupons expire 12/21/11 except for the last 2, they expire 9/10/11.

In the Mead composition notebooks there are $5 worth of coupons and a FREE sample of the Scotch Restickable Shapes product. Coupons inside are: $1/1 Scotch Restickable Product; $1/1 Mead Five Star Zipper Binder (x9/10); $1/1 Scotch Wrinkle-Free Glue Sticks; $1/1 Post-It Glags or Durable Tabs; $1/1 Scotch Restickable Shampes, Strips or Tabs. All coupons expire 12/31/11

You'll also find an EXCLUSIVE, TARGET ONLY special on select iCarly Notebooks (retail $2.50). You'll notice some sticks on the iCarly Notebooks mentioning a FREE iCarly episode, downloadable via iTunes and exclusively available via Target. This offer expires September 27, 2011. I am a HUGE iCarly fan (and Freddie is a cutie!), as are my siblings, so we'll be enjoying our free episode! :) Make sure you keep an eye for these notebooks!

My 7/14 Target Shopping Round-Up (Saved 97%)

I haven't been on a shopping trip for a couple weeks! Unbelievable! I've just had way too much too worry about, but after I stopped by the bank to open a new savings account for my student account (which I get $100 for depositing x amount for free!), we stopped by Target. I have been waiting for this Target Toy Clearance madness! The good majority of toys are only at 30% but found some toys for far less! We spotted some leggo-type toys marked down to $4.23 (down from $12.99). My little brother has taken a likinh to leggos, so we got him one and bought 12 more to send to Nicaragua. For kids who get NO toys whatsoever on Christmas, these toys will produce some of the best smiles you'll ever see!

We also bought a whole bunch of cute sandals for $3.45 each. There are TONS of SHOES ON CLEARANCE! We bought a lot so we can send them to Nicaragua for Christmas. We might be going at the end of this year, and we love to buy toys and other things to give away to the kids out there! More on that on a later post. My $5/2 Revlon catalinas gave me overage, and my scotch magic tape manufacturer coupons had a lot of trouble going through. My trip:

Bought (4) Sharpies (2ct.) - $1 each 

-Used (4) $1/1 Target Catalina

Los Angeles Times Sunday Newspaper Only $0.19 A Week!

Not until recently have I had a need to buy the Sunday paper, but I can't coupon without coupons! :) I found a GREAT deal for the Los Angeles Times newspaper. You can score the Los Angeles Times Sunday Newspaper for Only $0.19 a week!  If you're looking to get the Los Angeles Times Sunday paper delivered to your home, NOW is the time to buy a subscription! The Sunday paper is the one with all the great coupon inserts, so if you decide to register for service, it will practically pay for itself!

Visit the L.A. Times Self-Service website and enter your address, zip code (to see if they deliver in your area) and enter 900929 in the coupon code section. You will then be taken to the next page where you have the option to chose your subscription type (just choose Sunday only). Next page is where you will see the rates (with the coupon above added). You can get up to 3 Sunday newspapers delivered straight to your house for as little as $4.56 for 8-weeks, $6.84 for 12-weeks, $13.68 for 24-weeks or $29.64 for 52-weeks. Keep in mind, these prices reflect THREE copies of the Sunday paper for each week. So if you choose only 1 copy of the Sunday paper, you'll pay as little as $1.52 for 8-weeks and only $9.88 for 52-weeks! WHAT A HUGE SAVING! 

I hope you guys hurry and take advantage of this deal. I just registered for 3 copies of the Sunday Los Angeles Times newspaper for 24-weeks at only $13.68. I also set it on auto-renew, as it guarantees the SAME price for the next 24-weeks in case the coupon expires by then.

My Nutrisystem Weekly Weigh-In (Week #10) #NSNation

This is my 11th week on the Nutrisystem program.11 weeks into this journey and I have accomplished losing over 20lbs, that is amazing. This last month has been quite tough on me, and I have shown it with my low numbers. The heat, stress, work, and problems I have at the moment took a toll on me. I'm slowly managing to regain control.

This week I haven't felt like eating much due to the heat, and it draws me to pick the quick microwavable-only Nutrisystem foods. Sticking to the program as best as I could under the circumstances, my numbers were ok this week once again. The past month, I have gotten little to no excessive. I plan to change that this week since the forecast doesn't mention anything about triple-digit weather for the week! I'm exited to get to work on that!

This weeks weight-loss was ok, but due to the circumstances, It was expected. Who knew it would be so hard to lose weight during summer? :) I can't wait to keep pushing myself and lose more weight. I need to get into my exercise again! I have made a personal goal to lose a minimum of 10lbs. a month over the next 1 1/2 months I have left. :) Don't forget to Check out my entire Nutrisystem Journey, my photos on Flickr or my videos on YouTube! Now its time, my weight loss for the 11th week on Nutrisystem:
Weight Loss: 
             -6.2 lbs. [5/1/11]    -2.3 lbs. [6/12/11]
