Clearance Breast Pumps

For those of you breastfeeding moms in Louisville/Southern Indiana. I just got back from the Kroger in Clarksville on Lewis & Clark Pkwy and they have half a dozen or so Evenflo Comfort Select Automatic Cycling Breast Pumps on clearance for $19.99.

I saw some in the back of the store in the clearance bins and in the baby section. It's a single pump and I think it's more for travel or occasional use, but seems like a good deal; regular price is $39.99.

Run, Don't Walk to Kmart this Week!

They're doubling coupons up to $2.00! This should mean lots of free stuff! Check out Deal Seeking Mom's blog for more info. and coupon match-ups!
Update: Click here for a $5 off $50 purchase! Be sure to give this coupon to the cashier first before other coupons so your total is about $50 when this coupon is scanned!
You might want to call first to make sure your K-mart is participating! I think the ones on Lousiville are because it was advertised in the circular!

Diaper Deal of the Week! 4/19/09

In my opinion, this week it looks like Rite-aid has the best diaper deal. Their Huggies diapers and Pull-ups are only $8.99 for a Jumbo pack. Then they have a $3 Single Check Rebate (limit 1) and there are a ton of coupons floating out there. There's even some in today's newspaper inserts! So, here's the scenerio:

-$1.50/1 or $2/1 MQ (most diaper coupons are $1.50 and Pull-ups are $2.00)
-$3 SCR
=$4.49 or $3.99

Hints: you can also submit these for the caregiver's marketplace to get an extra $0.75 and there's a $3 of Pull-ups MQ in today's newspaper insert so these can be really cheap!
