The End.

Well, after eight months of blogging the "deals", I have decided to call it quits.
Blogging takes up time I feel I could use elsewhere. I really want to thank everyone who subscribed to and read my blog (even if only out of pity)!

For those of you that want to continue finding the best deals around, check out these blogs - I personally think they are a handful of the best:

Becentsable - the amazing, totally awesome Grocery Gathering
Deal Seeking Mom
Bargain Briana
Moms by Heart
Being Frugal is Fabulous
The Coupon Mom - the Grocery Coupon Database is great for coupon matching
Freebies 4 Mom

You can also scroll down the side of this blog for more links.
Thanks again, and enjoy the coming Spring!!

Coupon Insert Schedule

I have had a few family members mention that they didn't get inserts in the last Sunday paper. Oops! I forgot to mention that there aren't usually inserts on holiday weekends. I am not sure why. My guess is the companies don't want to spend money putting them into papers when most people are out of town, but since the coupons don't usually expire for weeks, this doesn't really add up...Does anyone know the real answer?!

In any case, HERE is the 2009 coupon insert list from BeCentsAble.

FYI - The Red Plum/Valassis insert is getting pulled from some papers. Boo! HERE is an article at Bargain Briana (love the graphic) about this issue.

Are you affected? Valassis has pulled their RedPlum coupon inserts from major cities in Ohio,
Indiana, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Utah, Virginia, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, Maryland, and Texas.

Fabulous Friday!
