double dipping.

i guess this makes me kind of a sucky coupon lady, but i’m not really that into rebates. sure, rite aid single check rebates are great and all, because you enter your receipts online and then they keep track of the rest. as for any rebate that involves saving receipts, filling out forms BY HAND, and hauling my fat carcass to the post office…mmmm not so much.

i’m sure at this point in my life my general laziness has cost me hundreds of dollars in would-be cash back. oh, and free grapefruit spoons. i completely screwed the pooch on that one too. but every now and then (ok, almost never), the stars will align just right, and my laziness will somehow no longer be a factor in my ability to get more free money/stuff.  remember last weekend when i got in just under the wire (by about 30 minutes) for my rite aid P&G “grab the gold” rebate? most people bought their stuff ages ago (and probably got better deals). but not me! and now, this poor planning and general laziness is coming back to benefit me. woot!

via a twitter tip from savvychicsavings earlier this week, i found out that there was a $100 P&G coupon book up for grabs for those of who can manage to spend $50 on P&G stuff between 2/1-4/15. hey wait, i just did that! and magically, i managed not to throw out my receipt. it’s a g-d christmas miracle.

now if i can only manage to wander to the post office before april, we’ll be all set.

in the event that you are more enthusiastic about receipt hoarding and envelope licking than i am, there are actually a shit ton of rebates out there ripe for the plucking. get to it!

remember that time…

…that we were trying (well, i was trying) to make a list of affordable & interesting places to shop for clothing on the internet? well, the list didn’t get very far, but i haven’t entirely given up the ship! today on twitter (thank’s savvychicsavings!) i spotted a tip regarding a pretty kick ass sale (starting at $4.99!) at a store called tulle. turns out they have a really nice modern preppy with creative edge thing going on that’s grown up without being dowdy (i’m talking to you lands’ end). i’m hardcore hearting this marigold yellow keyhole sweater. and for $23 bucks, it feels a little like stealing (not too much, just a little). just to recap, these are the current stores on our current must shop list:
