Deals From the Inbox

We always appreciate your emails letting us know about FAB deals and info! Here are just a few from the inbox this week.

Sean told us about a 20% off coupon for Hollister. Might be perfect for that back to school shopping!

Sean also told us about this $1/1 Snickers Ice Cream Bar coupon. I’m now contemplating having ice cream for breakfast. And if that is wrong, I don’t want to be right!

FruGAL Jenn told us about a great deal on chicken:

I noticed today at the Walmart in Ontario that chicken breasts were only $1.78 per pound, better price than the Albertson’s price. Not sure if this is all the stores in the valley or not.

And finally FruGAL Amy told us about a great opportunity to give back:

Hey Ladies!  I was wondering if I could enlist your help.  You have so many great followers that helped to make your yard sale such a great success.  What a great community we live in!!  I just recently started school at Oliver Finley and there is a former student that is going on a mission to Africa.  Did you know that in Africa women and girls miss a week of work and school because they are uneducated about their menstrual cycles and have no idea how to deal with it.  They actually sit on dirt mounds to absorb.  It’s very sad and I thought what a great idea to host a Tampon and Pad Drive for her to take to Africa with her.  If anybody has donations, they can contact me to come and pick it up or drop it off at Oliver Finley: Five Mile and Fairview right next to the Buffalo Club. Just ask for Amy Conner.  I would really appreciate this.  We will be doing this for the next three weeks.  Thank you so much!

    What an awesome way to give back to the women and girls of Africa and great idea this time of year! I love this website, and it actually helps my husband and I fund our development trips to Africa, every coupon counts! I have worked in Africa over the past ten years from the top of the continent to the bottom, and must say I do not recommend sending tampons to Africa. They will not be used and are not a culturally appropriate gift. Another idea to consider is sending some back to school supplies, pens and pencils, stickers and little notepads. These are things that will be used, and lack of supplies keeps many kids, and especially girls, out of school. I work mostly with those living on less than $1 a day, and they are my “other” family. I love Africa, and hope this information is helpful! Good luck with your drive and blessings for a wonderful trip 🙂

    Seems like chicken is more expensive lately – is there a reason?

    Would something like the Diva Cup be more appropriate? I love mine and best of all there is no corn in it! (Yes, corn and other things are in tampons and pads and those that are allergic will have consequences such as yeast infections and other ‘issues’)
