Attention all Moms! Great Nursing Bra!

I know, funny heading, right? But, I do need to tell you all about this fantastic nursing bra. I am now nursing our third child, so I think I am a little experienced in the area and can recommend a good bra when I find one. I didn't find it on my own, a dear friend told me about it. Its the Bravado Designs Body Silk Seamless Bra. Most of you know, that your body is never the same after pregnancy and nursing, but this bra really helps. I started wearing it at the end of my last pregnancy and loved it. It is now my go to bra. I need to order another one because my old ones just don't match-up to the quality and comfort of this one. You can find it at Diapers.com. Great website, great prices, and fast (2-day), free shipping with orders of $49 or more. If you order the bra, and a pack of diapers, large or small, you can save $10 on your first order if you use my referral code: MVAN3355. Or you can use my gmail address. So all you new moms, moms-to-be, or moms who plan to have more kids, get it. Its pricey, but every penny worth it! If you get it by January 31st, you can try this code, though I don't know if it will work or not, to score and extra 20% off.
(20PCTTY) UPDATE: Sorry, you won't be able to combine discounts. But, you can use the 20% off and I believe still get free shipping-so great bra for $39.80.

Hope you like it! Oh, and don't forget to shop through Ebates to earn cash back and check Retailmenot.com for more coupon codes.

Its been awhile...

Sorry for the delays in posts, but the holidays and two vacations nearly back to back, kept us quite busy over the past month. We are well though and hope you are too! So, I have yet another Rite Aid deal to tell about...
I don't have my receipt in front of me...because I had to send it in for a rebate, but I will try to remember as many details as I can.
I decided to take advantage of the "transfer your prescription " incentive this month. It seems like all the pharmacies are trying to get your business, so they offer gift cards if you transfer your prescriptions to them. My parents have been pharmacy hopping for years and always tell us about this $20 gift card or that $25 one. So, Rite Aid was offering one $25 gift cards per prescription per person. I am very happy with the service we get at Walgreens, but I wanted to take advantage of the deal to use the money to get some odds and ends we needed. Two of my boys each take a daily med, so thats two scripts, $25 gift card each....$50 total! Woohoo! There are quite a lot of good deals going on at Rite Aid this month between sales, coupon match-ups, SCR, manufacturer rebates, and the new deal...spend $25, $50, or even $100 worth of Proctor and Gamble products and earn a $5, $15, or $35 Visa gift card. That's a pretty sweet deal. So you guessed it, I used my Rite Aid $50 gift cards to buy some of the eligible products (i.e. I got Pampers, Duracell batteries, Olay Quench lotion, and Tampax tampons). It ended up being over $50 worth of stuff (retail, before all discounts) that I already earned a $15 Visa gift card. And the promotion goes through early February I believe.

OK, some other details of this shopping trip. I mentioned I got Olay lotion. Well, most of you know that Olay was offering a rebate of the full purchase price of up to two Quench body lotions. So I took advantage of that and got two great lotions for free! I had the $5/25 purchase coupon that is floating online and the $5/20 coupon from Video Values and those lowered my total costs-yes, you can use both. I had quite a few manufacturers coupons for the items mentioned above. And I snag some clearance Christmas items like wrapping paper that was 90% off. Even though the retail cost of everything was probably $70, I only paid about $36 (used gift card) and still have $14 left on the Rite Aid gift card. So, lots of free items, and qualified for the Olay rebate and the Visa rebate! Hopefully, I will use the last $14 wisely to qualify for the P and G Visa rebate of $35. It will be a huge money maker!
