I just did one yesterday! That's $25 of free groceries next time I go in to shop. I don't know if there is a limit on transferred prescriptions... check with your Smiths Pharmacist for more details.
(New prescriptions not included... Transfers only. Transfers from one Smiths to another Smiths don't count.)

This 8 pack of Energy Smart 13 Watt (60 watt equivalent) light bulbs was bought for $2.86. No that is not a typo... We bought 8 packages, but there were STACKS of them. Can you say *HOAD? These are usually around $12 per package.
Head on over to the Jordan Landing Sams Club in West Jordan and pick you some up... or better yet, give them a quick call first to make sure they still have them... with a deal that hot, they could run out any time. I checked before posting and they still had them.
Good Luck! :)
*HOAD = Heck of a deal.

... I highly recommend that you go on over and have a peek. Jodi and Julie have lots of good helps including a babysteps checklist that they will email to you weekly to get you started. Here is what they have to say about it...
"If you follow our checklists for one year you will have your 72 hour kits, water storage, 3 month supply of normal foods, and your entire one year supply of long-term foods as well as some critical non-food items. We started this program to help people with their New Year’s Resolutions to get their food storage done, but if you sign up later you will automatically start with the very first checklist so that you won’t miss a single one!"
There are also tutorial videos, worksheets, instructions and handouts that you can print off. I signed up... you should too. :)

- American Beauty Pasta (select 16oz varieties) end up $0.49 each when you buy 10.
- Classico Pasta Sauce (10-26oz all varieties) end up $1.49 each when you buy 10.
- Nature Valley Fiber One or Cereal Bars end up $1.49 each when you buys 10
- Kellogs Nutrigrain Bars and some selected cereals end up $1.69 each when you buy 10
The nice thing is they have ALOT of "Buy 10, receive $5 off" items in their ten item mega event. You don't have to buy ten of one thing, you can buy five of one and five of another and get $0.50 off each item. (Limit three $5 off rewards PER TRANSACTION.) Take a look at the current Smith's AD here to see what else is included on this deal and if you do nothing else this week, choose ten items to add to your food storage shelf! (Even if it is just ten bags of the pasta, it will only cost you $4.90).
Smith's also has 83% lean Ground beef in pkgs of 2lbs or more for $1.89/pound and selected 2.5 to 4lb, (depending on what cut you choose), bags of frozen Kroger chicken for $6.96 each. Additionally you will find their 32 oz bars or shredded Kroger cheese for $4.99 each and Mountain Dairy Milk for $1.59/gallon.
(*Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any misprints by the grocery store chains OR by me. Check your mailers to confirm prices, or go online here for Smiths to look at the AD's for yourself.)

Personally, I was deeply motivated by his words and have decided to put this on my priority list. Do you have your food storage started? If not, take the advice Pres. Allan, who was a counselor to President Murphy last year... Set up a shelf somewhere in the basement and put one can on it. Voila! You have now started your food storage. Now get going and add to it. :)
One quick and easy way to get your food storage going is to buy extra when you find a *HOAD. Each week retailers have a couple of items that they reduce drastically to get you in to their stores. These are excellent items to begin stocking up on for food storage. When purchased with coupons, the items can cost next to nothing. Examples may include jars of pasta sauce, cans of fruit, granola bars, cereal... you name it. The sales vary from week to week and if you pay attention and plan ahead a little, you can have a selection of food sitting on your shelf in no time at all.
Don't think you have enough money to stock up on a few items? Use the money saved from cutting coupons (even if it is only $5) to purchase a few extra items each week.
Another event that happens in Utah around General Conference time is the "case lot sales". At this time when you buy one of their specially advertised cases, you get a discount because you bought in bulk! Aim to pick up at least one case of something this Conference, (the first week of April), and you can be well on your way to getting your food storage started. :)
*HOAD = Heck of a deal.

Lets face it. Most of the infomercial products out there are just not what they make themselves out to be, but watch the commercial for half an hour and you may just find yourself talked into purchasing one.
There are two additional immediate problems with infomercial products. First, they are usually way over priced for what they are, and second, the shipping and handling can be as much as the product price itself.
If you are an infomercial junkie, (or even an avid QVC shopper), switch the channel or turn off the TV immediately. You can save yourself from impulse buys that can cost you hundreds of dollars a year! :)
