Splenda, anyone?

I wasn't going to blog tonight, but I had another MAJOR coup in the savings game.

I've been browsing the blogosphere to get info that might be helpful to pass along, and I came across Bargain Hunting Moms. I had tagged her site a while back as a reference for online shopping deals, but when I visited tonight, her header caught my eye - she had just paid $19 for 128 Pop Tarts, shipped, from Amazon.com's grocery clearance. They have a thing going on right now where you use the coupon code CLRANC78 and get an instant $10 rebate at checkout on clearance grocery items.

My curiosity was piqued, so I hopped on to Amazon to check this out.

I mentioned when I started this blog that my husband is a Type 1 diabetic. One of the items I constantly have to blow my budget on is Splenda - it's the only non-chemical tasting sweetener that has been remotely useful in baking recipes as far as I can tell, and he hates to put the pink stuff on his oatmeal. So how happy was I to see that they had 3-bag packs of Splenda on the grocery clearance?

They were $26 for three packs, so with the $10 instant rebate I'd be looking at $16 for three, or $5 and change per bag. Even at the bulk stores I have to pay 8 or 9 bucks for a bag, so this was already VERY appealing. THEN I remembered that I had earned a $10 Amazon gift code for filling out a survey.

Oh. My. Gosh.

I just bought THREE bags of sweetener for $6.

Had to share this before vacation, in case the code expires soon. Check out all the Amazon Grocery Clearance Items and see what gems you can come up with!
