So, who's been out freebie-hunting this morning?

So, who's been out hitting CVS and Walgreens already this morning? My husband and I went to our local CVS at 8:15am and got everything you see above -- all of the freebies, plus the .99 Listerine and Kraft cheese. We did get the last shaker of parmesan, but beyond that, everything was in stock. The Lake in the Hills, IL CVS had the majority of the free items on an endcap near the front of the store, which made deal-hunting very easy.

I do want to get to Walgreens later too for their deals (especially the Excedrin, which we never seem to have enough of in the Cataldo house.)

What deals are you chasing today? Have you been out this morning?


Mending my family's clothes: How to fix worn jeans "invisibly"

Part of my money-saving mindset has always been to make the things we use last as long as possible. Whether it's repairing an appliance to avoid replacing it (or paying for an expensive service call,) or mending clothing to get a little longer life out of it, I'm always willing to put in a little effort to both save money and avoid being wasteful.

I think a big part of this was the way I was raised, but I grew up in a household where both my parents repaired what was broken and mended what was damaged. Whether it was a missing shirt button or a snowsuit that had wore through at the knees, my parents fixed it. In fact, the snowsuit I wore as a grade-schooler had the knees patched somewhere around the time my sister grew into it. My daughter, who's now 18, wore the same snowsuit when she was little. My oldest son wore it, and my youngest son wears it now! Now, that may be an extreme example, but I was always taught to make things last.

My children all know that I have a spot in the house for clothes that need repair -- drop things in that corner of our room, and I'll fix them. I've written at length about how much I dislike our front-loading washing machine (here, here, and here to name a few.) One issue I haven't touched on here on the blog though is the fact that my machine rips clothing fairly often. I believe this is due to the extremely high speeds in which it spins the water out after the last rinse cycle. If one piece of clothing catches on a zipper or a button, it can tear. And, at least once a month, I pull something out of the washing machine that looks like this:

Again, I'd never buy another front-loader -- that's another issue. When things like this happen though, I grab a needle and thread (or depending on the size of the project, go to my sewing machine) and fix it.

Having two boys, my oldest son hands a lot of his clothes down to his younger brother. This works out pretty well for shirts, coats and the like, but jeans and pants? Eventually, they look like this:

While I could put patches over these ripped knees, I also don't want my kids to be self-conscious of an obvious repair job. Sometimes things simply wear out, and there's nothing you can do. However, I want to share how I've been able to extend the life of my sons' jeans by patching them invisibly...

Walmart updates Amazon price-match policy: No longer matches Amazon Marketplace sellers

Wal-Mart.com USA, LLC

After Walmart announced that they would match prices at Amazon.com, unscrupulous sellers began exploiting the price-match policy in a rather nefarious way -- they created Amazon Marketplace profiles for the items they wished to buy, then listed items like a PlayStation 4 for $49.00 (it sells for about $499.00) or bottles of Tide for $2.00. Then, they went to Walmart stores, price-matched the lowball Amazon items, and took the products home for next to nothing -- especially if coupons were used on top of these low prices. Consumerist and other media outlets covered this practice earlier this week, while Instagram blew up with couponers showing off their enormous hauls of ill-gotten price-matched items.

Today, Walmart announced that they would no longer price-match Amazon Marketplace items:


We launched online price matching because it’s the right thing for our customers. It’s making a meaningful difference for people who want to feel confident they’re getting the best price, and we’re committed to matching online prices going forward.

At the same time, we can’t tolerate fraud or attempts to trick our cashiers. This kind of activity is unfair to the millions of customers who count on us every day for honest value. With this in mind, we’ve updated our policy to clarify that we will match prices from Walmart.com and 30 major online retailers, but we won’t honor prices from marketplace vendors, third-party sellers, auction sites or sites requiring memberships.

We will continue to listen to feedback from our customers and our cashiers to make sure our online price match policy is working.



Phosphate dishwasher detergent fans: Cascade Professional returns under a new name

Fans of phosphate-based dishwasher detergents know that this is a topic I've written about passionately over the last few years. I like detergents that work, and I don't like detergents that don't. It's pretty simple, really.

After experiencing dismal performance from consumer-grade dishwasher detergents when phosphates were phased out in 2011, I tested out several varieties of phosphate-based detergents, ultimately selecting Cascade Professional Line as my detergent of choice. It seemed to work the best in my dishwasher, and even though I couldn't buy this product with coupons, it was well worth spending my non-coupon dollars on because it worked.

Unfortunately, Cascade Professional was recently discontinued too. I went on a buying spree and purchased several cases to tide me over until I could find a replacement product that I liked just as much.

Recently, several readers have brought to my attention that Cascade Professional has reappeared under a new name: Cascade Fryer Boil Out. Now, the original Cascade Professional Line had instructions on the back for both dishwasher use and for cleaning deep fryers with it.

This new Cascade no longer has the dishwasher instructions on it. However, guess what it does have?

The same ingredients as the old product I know and love.

It's brilliant, really. While the ban on phosphates extends to dishwasher detergents, the ban evidently doesn't extend to fryer boil out products. How about that.

Another site that now carries Cascade Fryer Boil Out, Restockit, notes "Although Cascade with Phosphates detergent has been discontinued... "Boil-Out" Cascade is being purchased by customers like you. We encourage you to learn more about this product and its ingredients."

Translation? Wink, wink... we know what this is. "Customers like you" also know what this is.

I'm elated that once my stockpile of "the good stuff" finally runs out, I'll be able to purchase Cascade Fryer Boil-Out and continue to enjoy remarkably clean dishes.

Walmart to begin matching competitors' Black Friday ads this Friday, November 21st

Wal-Mart.com USA, LLC

Walmart sure is upping the ante this holiday shopping season.

Last week, Walmart announced it would begin price-matching Amazon.

Today, Walmart announced that it will begin price-matching competitors' Black Friday ads this Friday, November 21st:


Holiday shoppers don’t have to wait until Black Friday to start shopping for deals at Walmart. At 8 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, Walmart will kick off a pre-Black Friday savings event in stores and online, lowering the prices on popular toys and electronics, to match select Black Friday offers from Target, Toys R’ Us and Best Buy one week early.

Beginning today, the retailer also extends its Christmas Ad Match* to Walmart.com customers. Customers who purchase an item on Walmart.com, and find a lower price in a local brick and mortar competitor, can email christmasadmatch@walmart.com and receive the difference on a gift card. The same policy is in place for customers at Walmart stores for items purchased Nov. 1 through Dec. 24, excluding Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.


Some of the prices Walmart has announced it will match:

Toys:
LeapPad 2 – WAS: $79, NEW PRICE: $39.99
Little Tikes Cozy Coupe – WAS: $49.87, NEW PRICE: $34.99
Nerf Rebelle Crossbow – WAS: $19.88, NEW PRICE: $11.99
Monopoly Board Game – WAS: $7.77, NEW PRICE: $5
Hot Wheels Single Car – WAS: .97 cents, NEW PRICE: .60 cents

Electronics:
LG 50-inch HDTV – WAS: $598, NEW PRICE: $448
Skylanders and Infinity Starter Packs – WAS: $74.96, NEW PRICE: $37
Select PS4 and Xbox One Video Games such as NBA 2K14 and Battlefield 4 – WAS: $59.96, NEW PRICE: $49

It doesn't sound like you can take ANY store's Black Friday ads in and match them this Friday, but rather that Walmart will be dropping its prices to match selected ads.

You can also preview Walmart's Black Friday ad at this link.

5 Fridays Until Christmas gift idea: Flannel lined jeans

There are only FIVE Fridays left until Christmas. Each Friday, as we get closer to the holiday, I'll share a fun or interesting gift with you...

Today's holiday gift idea is something that's dear to my sons' warm little hearts (and legs) -- flannel lined jeans!

A few years ago I picked up a pair of these on clearance for my oldest son. Whenever they were clean, they were the first pair he'd pull out of his drawer when getting dressed. When he finally outgrew them, he lamented that they were the "warmest, softest" jeans he'd ever worn. I promised to buy him a new pair, passing the old pair down to my younger son.

Though that pair of jeans has seen better days, they're still warm, soft, and loved by his younger brother. My kids especially like wearing flannel lined jeans on snow-play days for an extra layer of warmth under their snow pants.

My husband also has a pair of flannel-lined jeans that he loves for similar reasons -- they're great for attending outdoor sports events in the winter, and they're even warmer under snow gear when he's headed out to shovel snow or work outside in the winter. The positive raves from my guys prompted me to pick up a pair for myself too!

Flannel-lined jeans aren't the easiest thing to find in department stores though. Old Navy used to stock them all the time, but they appear to be an online-only item now. Farm and Fleet stores do carry them, as do some outdoor gear stores. I've done a roundup of places to get them online too and their current prices. Note that prices can change at any time. Wherever I've shown a price range, the prices vary by style and size:


Oshkosh
Toddlers' overalls: $17.00-$18.00

Farm & Fleet
Boys': $20.99-$23.99
Men's: $24.99-$44.99

Men's: $34.99 ($24.88 for flannel lined tan canvas style too!)
Women's: $31.49

Men's: $39.99-$59.95
Women's: $44.99-$64.95

Hanna Andersson

Women's: $49.00-$69.30

Land's End

Sign up for Hilton HHonors and get double points


Are you a hotel loyalty rewards member? I've been a Hilton HHonors rewards member for quite a few years now, and I continue to be pleased with the rewards I've earned! Even if you don't travel a lot, I think it's worth signing up for rewards programs at your hotels of choice. You may accrue points faster than you can think, and being a Hilton HHonors member has brought me all kinds of small and unexpected perks too -- everything from surprise upgrades to finding a Coke and cookies in my room upon check-in because somewhere in my file, "they" know I like those things.

Traveling for the holidays? Sign up above for Hilton HHonors rewards, and you'll enjoy double HHonors points after your first stay! Note that this isn't a credit card - it's a loyalty program.

I can't say enough great things about this program. I enjoy using my HHonors points for free hotel stays at Hilton properties too -- last summer, we used our points for free nights at the Universal Studios Hilton in California too.
