Save a Load on Metamucil (and Personal Finance Links)

Written by

In keeping with the trend I started around a month ago, here are seven things I think this week:

  • I think that I found a new product that's worth buying coupons on Ebay. I saw that the local military commissary has Metamucil's Clear and Natural Fiber Substitute available for $6.99 for the 11.7oz size. CVS has it on sale for $9.99 down from its typical $13.49 price. The 20-pack of $3 off coupons cost me $0.99 with free shipping. So I can get what may be considered a $13.49 product for $3.99. The question is how many should I buy before the coupon expires at the end the month.
  • I think I feel bad for many people who do not have access to military commissaries to take advantage of the above deal. However, I've found that, at times, similar deals can be had at Wal-mart.
  • I think that the AARP is going to be sending me some email after I wrote about saving money on Metamucil.
  • I think I was a bit surprised by the national debt numbers I saw in a local newspaper. Yes, the 12.9 trillion dollar debt was eye-opening, but I was more surprised by that debt divided per taxpayer... $118,524.
  • I think that the National League got a whole zoo off their back with their win on last week's All-Star game.
  • I think (as long as we are on the baseball topic) that posting may be light this week as I got to 3 Red Sox-Oakland games. If any of them are like last night's game it will be a series I'll remember for awhile. I apologize if the posting is a little light over the next few days.
  • I think I'm crazy for panning Apple fans for there love of all Apple products, when I do much of the same for Palm products. I don't even know what the unannounced PalmPad is going to be yet, and I want one. To paraphrase one of my friends, "It's one thing to be crazy... but at least be self-aware about it."

And here are the Personal Finance Links:

  1. “but I was more surprised by that debt divided per taxpayer… $118,524. ”

    I have an easy solution to lower that amount – go around poking holes in condoms.

    Hey, if you can’t reduce the numerator, increase the denominator.

    I imagine it would take awhile for that solution to work its way into the system as they’d be a few years away from taxpayer status.

    Its not the AARP, but Monavie found you again.

    I read via RSS feed in Google Reader. The ‘Ads by Google’ at the bottom was “The Acai Berry Company presents: Mona-Vie”

    I’ll admit to a bit of a smirk when seeing it. ;)

      Someone else mentioned this to me today. It seems the company (Acai-Berry, not MonaVie) has bought it’s way into my site through Google. It seems like a pretty poor way to spend those advertising dollars, but hey, that’s their business. I’m curious if they like my JuiceScam.com site as well.

  4. Cathie says:

    My husband has a Metamucil cocktail every morning (he says it’s a great source of fiber.) I had those $3 coupons and made out like a bandit at both Walgreen’s and CVS. We have more than a year’s supply. Awesome!

  5. I know how you feel about the commissary, totally unfair for people who don’t have access but I can’t complain myself! I’m not sure how much Metamucil is too much Metamucil, but hey, a deal’s a deal!
