Well here we are, June 1, and after the winter we survived, I just want to be outside to enjoy the warm weather. In today’s Times Leader there are a lot of deals on items to help you enjoy being outside.
Taking the bite out of those pesky insects, Dollar General has Cutter Skinsations, 6 ounces, on sale for $3.25. And do not let spring and summer allergies hold you back, either. Use the manufacturer’s $4 coupon on a 24-count package of Claritin with Dollar General’s sale price of $15.50 to get your relief for only $11.50.
To help our furry family members, Dollar General has Sergeant’s Flea and Tick Squeeze-On treatment for cats and dogs, $4.95. Sales prices are valid until June 8.
If camping is in your plans, check out Target’s sales flier in today’s Times Leader and find a steal on an Embark Dome Tent, which sleeps four, for only $36. Sales prices are valid through June 8.
Or maybe your idea of camping is in an RV. Well, Wal-Mart is advertising TST Orange RV Toilet Treatment, 32 fluid ounces for $5.64, Revolution 20’ RV Sewer Hose Kit, 5.5 pounds, for $29.97, and Scott Rapid Dissolve RV Bathroom Tissue, four rolls, for $3.17.
Perhaps a “staycation” in on your agenda. Wal-Mart also has a 10-inch-by-30-inch Summer Escape Quick Pool, including the pump and cartridges on sale this week for $48.88. Pool chemicals are also on sale. Check out Wal-Mart’s circular in today’s Times Leader for details.
In today’s Walgreens flier, Raid Max Bug Barrier, 30 ounces, is on sale for $7.99. Combine this with a manufacturer’s coupon, found in today’s Times Leader, for $3 off to prevent the creepy crawlers from invading your home.
Any master griller will say the key to a good cookout is aluminum foil. Inside the Walgreens flier, find a store coupon for Reynolds Wrap Aluminum Foil, 65 square feet for $2.99, valid until June 7.
There is a great steal to be found at Walgreens for your dog too. Pet Shoppe Training Pads, 30 count, are on sale for $5.99. Remember to present your Walgreens Rewards card at the time of purchase to receive the above sale prices.
In today’s Times Leader, Kmart has just what you need to battle those persistent weeds from popping up in your yard with Round Up Pump’n Go, 1.33 gallons, for $16.99.
Yard work aside, why not enjoy the outdoors with a bike ride. This week, Kmart has 26-inch Huffy Superia Mountain Bikes on sale for $69.99 with free assembly.
Be sure to check out Kmart’s 3-Day sale on selected merchandise. One deal that cannot go unnoticed is the special pricing on Tide, 40 ounces, for $4.89. Combine this with a $2 manufacturer’s coupon and you are ready to fight any stain summer can create.
My cost-cutting tip this week is simple: Take a walk (or bike ride if you prefer). We are fortunate to live in an area with several natural areas and state parks to enjoy. Take a walk on one of the many former railroad beds that have been turned into pathways. Check out http://www.luzernecounty.org/living/recreational_resources/state_parks to see what amenities our local state parks have. Do not forget about the summer events planned for the River Common. Visit http://www.riverfrontparks.org/ to see what events are scheduled, such as River Fest 2014 coming up later this month.
Get out and enjoy!
