Okay, many of you probably already know about the 20% off Amazon diaper codes that are in a bunch of parenting mags these days. As well as the $10 Amazon baby store codes. I am going to do a post later highlighting all the different deals that can be had using these codes.

But real quick I just wanted to tell you about the Fuzzibunz deal b/c it is even sweeter than the rest of the cloth diaper deals, thanks to an extra code.

So a FB diaper runs about $19.95. Make sure you are purchasing one that is from Amazon and not a 3rd party seller, or the codes won't work.

Use code FUZZIMOM to take of 15%

If you can get your hands on a 20% code that starts with YJ, a 20% code that starts with YT, and a $10 code, you can stack all three of these!

So YJ would take off 20%
YT would take off another 20%
and then you can get the $10 off.

So you will end up with a FREE diaper.

Another important note: the YJ codes work on up to 3 diapers (or boxes of diapers if you are doing disposables) at a time. So if you have a YJ, YT, and $10. You can buy 3 diapers, and get 20% off on all 3 of them. Plus FUZZIMOM would work on all 3. Only one will end up getting the 20% extra from the YT. And the $10 technically applies to any order over $10. So for 3 Fuzzibuns you would pay about $23, if I am doing my math correctly!

If you are a new mom building her stash of cloth, these deals can be invaluable! When I first started CDing, I spent about $300 for 13 BumGenius 3.0s. It was a lot to drop all at once. Of course it paid off in the long run, but it would have been a million times better if I could have gotten them even cheaper!

I have also stacked these Amazon codes (except fuzzimom) to get Thirsties Duo Diapers, Grovia, and Kissaluvs AIO! The cods also work on inserts, such as Thirsties and Joey Bunz. Just make sure that whatever you are buying is sold straight from Amazon, or the codes won't work!

crap I bought today

I have dropped the ball on this blog, again. Sorry dudes, I'm 35 weeks pregnant and it's hard to do much of anything these days for lack of energy, focus, motivation, etc. I haven't been couponing that hard either, so you haven't missed out on much. I didn't even buy papers last week b/c there was only one Red Plum in them and it just didn't seem worth it. But I'm trying to get back on the horse (only to get off it again soon when babe is born, I'm sure). Anywho...

Today I spent a few dollars and I thought I would share.

I bought the deal on Mamapedia Sweet Deals for a $25 voucher to Cookie Jar DVDs. It cost $10. Actually it was supposed to be $5 with a coupon code, but I had a brain fart and forgot to put the code in when I checked out. So I messaged them and was told they should be able to issue me a $5 refund. I am awaiting reply on that. But anyways, if all goes well I will be getting about 3 Richard Scarry DVDs for $5 + $3 shipping. Penny loves Richard Scarry so I think she will be pleased.

I also bought the daily deal on from Eco Mom. Yesterday I commented on their FB page about how the daily deals seem great until you calculated shipping and it is $7 or more, and that pretty much ruins the deal completely. They were very nice and replied that they were going to work on this issue and make it better for their customers. They weren't lying. Today's daily deal shipping was only $2.95. So much better! And to top it off, they offered me a $10 gift certificate just for making the comment and because they wanted me to shop their site. Now that's some good customer service right there! So today's deal was a Putamayo World Playground CD for $9.65 (orig. $15.99) + $2.95 shipping. Since I had the $10 gift certificate, I paid less than $3. If you aren't familiar with these CDs, you should be, because they are really awesome. Kids music that even a parent can love. We have the French one currently and I really enjoy it. And I will tell you I paid full price for it, so it must be good! haha

My other deal today was I took advantage of the free 8x10 collage print from Walgreen's. I ended up putting it together at 10 minutes 'til midnight, so I didn't get to really think about it much (procrastination is my middle name), but I put some pictures together from Penny's first week earth-side and I think it is going to turn out quite precious. And if not, it was free, so whatevs. I will pick it up in the store tomorrow.

Penny and I also took an adventure to Kroger, and she used the tiny cart again. SO.CUTE. I only used 2 coupons! I know, blasphemy. But we bought a bunch of produce and some other necessities that we buy regardless of coupons and sales (like Penny's coveted cereal bars that almost never have coups). It was unavoidable. I saved $5 with my coupons ($1 off Applegate Farms chicken nuggets and $4 off Zyrtec). We also got a Valentine's Puzzle from the clearance table for 15 cents.

We had dinner at Chipotle. I know, go to the grocery store and then go eat dinner at a restaurant. Pretty much silly to do. But Chipotle has been on my mind all week, and it had to be done. There is an awesome coupon available right now for B1G1 Chipotle burritos, but since Penny can't exactly handle an entire adult sized burrito herself, we did not use the coupon. However, my husband printed one out at work and split the cost with a co-worker, making his dinner tonight only $4. Nothing like a husband adopting the couponing ways.

Kroger 2/6

I hit the last day of the Kroger Mega-sale last night. I saved 57%! (Spent $81, saved $106!)

I'm not going to detail my shopping trip b/c the deals are no longer valid today since almost everything I bought was part of the mega-sale which is now over...
