NEW Target Coupons On ShopKick App!

More NEW Target coupons available on the ShopKick App today. As long as they keep on posting new coupons, I'll keep posting them for you guys! :) Don't know what ShopKick is? ShopKick is an app available for iPhone and Android devices for FREE. You get points for walking into certain stores, redeem them for gift cards or use them to donate to worthy causes :) I love this app, and another wonderful thing is that they post Target mobile coupons via the ShopKick App. The Target coupons on ShopKick are different from the mobile coupons, insert and website Target coupons.

How to redeem? Simply click "Use This" then you will see the barcode which the cashier should scan. You will have 12 hours to use it after tapping "Use This" or else it expires, so I suggest you click "Use This" only when you're already at the store!
I'm not sure how often they update their Target coupons on ShopKick but its a nice surprise when you find them on there! :) As of this morning, they posted 5 NEW Target Coupons and they all expire 8/5.
  • $0.75/1 Up & Up Feminine Care Item Target Q
  • $0.50/1 Up & Up Hair Care Item Target Q
  • $0.50/1 Up & Up Cleaning Item Target Q
  • $0.75/1 Colgate Max Toothpaste Target Q
  • 15% Off Any Coleman Camping Item Target Q
Use code "RABBIT7476" to earn an extra 50 kick bucks when you download the ShopKick app on your iPhone or Android phone. To redeem this code and your kick bucks, download the ShopKick app and go to the "Me" tab on the app to enter the code under "Got A Promo Code?" :)

I'm Ready For The Target TOY Clearance!!

Target Toy Clearance was still around 30% last time I went about a week ago. I'm predicting it should go down to the long awaited 75% by Tuesday next week. I am so EXITED! I hope we can score some great deals on the toys, as I saw a lot of good toys on clearance, including Bratz dolls, Lego toys, Hot Wheels, Board Games, and a lot more. All of the Summer toys were also on clearance!

The toys we buy will go directly to Nicaragua where we will give them away to kids from our neighborhood during La Purisima. The smiles on the kids faces are worth a million bucks! These are poor kids who don't receive ANY toys for Christmas because their parents can't afford anything other than a roof over their heads, school and food, and they struggle giving them that as it is. We struggle ourselves here in the U.S. but have things these kids would never be able to have, so to spend a little more out of our pockets to help put a smile on their face, is worth it

Back to the toy clearance, if you haven't gone to check out your store's clearance, feel free to check out the photo slideshow below. I took a lot of pictures to have in mind what will be clearanced:

FREE Freschetta By-The-Slice Pizza Coupons!

Great Laptop Promotions For Students. I Got My NEW Laptop!

How much would you pay for a Toshiba Laptop with a widescreen HD 15.6" TruBrite LED Backlit Screen, Intel Pentium processor, 3GB Memory, 250GB Hard Drive, Built in Webcam and Mic? Around $500 - $600, right? I PAID $299! Last week, Fry's Electronics had a sale for the Toshiba L655-S5147 at $299. I saw this deal and literally RAN to the store the next day. This deal couldn't of came at a better time. I finally had managed to save up for a new laptop, since my old Sony Vaio laptop completely died after 5 years.

I can't even compare the two, even though I prefer the Sony brand over Toshiba. I have been using this laptop for about a week and have a huge pet peeve already. It isn't directed at the laptop or its manufacturer, but Windows 7. I can NOT install my Photoshop 7 program on it. I feel like pulling my hair out, its so frustrating. I can't do anything without Photoshop, and I refuse to go find some other low-grade photo editing program. Other than that unfortunate road block, I am enjoying the computer. It has the brightest screen I've ever come across, its beautiful. I LOVE that the laptop also has a dedicated numerical keyboard, not many laptops do. Now, I'm not sure if I'll stick with this one, I really had my eye on an HP Laptop I planned on getting from Staples with the current  $100 Student promotion, but this deal was too good too pass. I'm thankful my parents have allowed me to give it to my sister and pay the difference for a new one if I decide not to keep it.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BUY A NEW LAPTOP, WATCH THE SALES! Right now, all the freshmen going to college are probably scrambling around looking to buy a new laptop for school. There are TONS of great deals on very good laptops everywhere. Places like Staples and Office Depot are offering a $100 Prepaid VISA Gift Card when you buy a new laptop for College Students (just have proof; acceptance letter, Student I.D., etc.). There are tons of great deal online too, laptops (not netbooks) as low as $249! Also, don't forget, sites like DELL are offering a FREE XBOX 360 console when you purchase a new laptop (you don't have to be a student to take advantage of this deal). So if you are looking to buy one, right now is a very good time. :)

DisclaimerI was not compensated for this post. The product in question was bought by myself.

HOT! Creative WebCam On Sale $7.99 (Originally $80) 91% Savings

1SaleaDay is having a GREAT sale on the Creative Live Optia 1.3mp Webcam for $7.99 (originally $80). That is a 91% savings, no coupon needed :) The webcam has a 270 Degree Swivel Range, Face Tracking & Video/Image Editing Software! If you choose to buy some, you can make a quick profit on Ebay, where they sell for more. Also, these make great inexpensive stocking stuffers! This deal ends 7/19 at 9pm PST.

I very often buy things from  ISaleaDay, as they are always very cheap! I've never had a problem and shipping never take over a week. I'm also a HUGE fan of creative products. They are quite pricey, but the quality is well worth it, I still have 3 mp3 players from Creative that work a good 7 years later.

Looking For College Students w/ Frugal Tips To Share! :)

I'm looking for frugal College Students with tips on how YOU save on just about anything! I want to have random "Frugal Tips From College Lips" posts where I take your submitted tips and post them for other college students to read. Speaking to friends on campus and ones who live in dorms, they always have amusing and amazingly frugal tips, and I hope you guys can help submit some too! 
What is one frugal tip I ALWAYS give to other students? "When at a store, movie theater, or any other place of business, always ask if they have a student discount". Always carry your Student I.D. because you never know where you can potentially save with it! I have saved quite a bit by asking at local restaurants and stores :)
If you have a tip you'd like to submit, use the contact form. If you have a blog of your own, please send along the link so we can link to you if we choose to post your tip. :)

My Nutrisystem Weekly Weigh-In (Week #12) #NSNation

This is my 12th week on the Nutrisystem program. I have now been on the Nutrisystem program for three months and have lost 25 lbs. Its been a journey, but I've learned a lot. This last month has been an eye opener. I've been overly stressed about problems and have found I tend to not care and just go for it. Its shown in my weight loss for this last month, but as of last week, I have been working a little harder to stay on track. The weight I have lost so far is what excites me :)

Stress and the horrible triple-digit weather is what caused me to stray, and since this is the first time in my life I've been committed to losing weight, I'm trying to find ways to succeed. I don't know why I've been drawn to soda lately, but it makes me feel horrible. I do know that the unhealthy food I unfortunately ate was due to a mix of stress and convenience. I'm glad this has happened, its slowly teaching me how I react to these situations and the bad habits I need to break.

This weeks weight-loss was ok, but I'm currently trying to build up my good habits in order to lose, on average, the amount I was before.  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 month 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 12th week on Nutrisystem:
Weight Loss: 
              -6.2 lbs. [5/1/11]    -2.3 lbs. [6/12/11]
             -3.1 lbs. [5/8/11]    -1.1 lbs. [6/19/11] 

             -2.6 lbs. [5/15/11]   -0.8 lbs. [6/26/11]
             -1.8 lbs. [5/22/11]   -0.8 lbs. [7/3/11] 
             -2.5 lbs. [5/29/11]   -0.5 lbs. [7/10/11] 
             -2.6 lbs. [6/5/11]    -0.7 lbs. [7/10/11]
Total: 25.1 lbs.
