Neat article about couponing

Click here to read an article from the Chicago Tribune about extreme couponing. This could become a new sport in the Olympics!

The best I've done so far is to save 30% off my grocery bill. But, B & I don't like to eat a lot of the foods that you usually see coupons for. We like organic and natural foods. Those coupons are much harder to find. However, I do a great job at the drug stores with the help of all my online couponing blogs that I use to find all the deals. I usually walk out of the drug store without spending a dime, or with very little OOP (out of pocket). : )

Thanks, Jessa, for the article!

Today ONLY, Restaurant.com is offering certificates for 80% off!! That is $2 for a $25 gift certificate at thousands of restaurants. Time to stock up!! At checkout, enter the code FIRST.

If you have never purchased anything through Restaurant.com, you are missing out! It really is a $25 gift certificate for only $2!!! Plug your zip code in, choose the restaurants you love or have always wanted to visit, and stock up. The certificates expire a year from purchase date, and are great for gifts. One thing, always double check the special instructions listed on the certificate. This may stipulate specific days of use, how much to spend, etc.

This is a photo of all the freebies that I got at Rite Aid this week! Not bad, eh? I could have gotten a few more items, but I don't use disposable razors or regular light bulbs. I realize that Indiana doesn't have Rite Aid, or at least not where I'm from. But, sometimes Walgreen's has a great rebate program, too. In fact, I'll take a photo of the last Walgreen's shopping trip I took and post it later.

The two One Touch monitors you can see in the back were free because I had two "up to $20 off" coupons from the Sunday paper. The monitors sold for $19.99. I will donate them to a local healthcare assistance center.

I also plan on donating the Nature's Cure acne solution and Charles Worthington shampoo (for color-treated hair) to a local homeless shelter.

The remainder of the items, B & I can use at home. Let me know if you have any fun shopping moments! My next few posts I plan on answering some questions about coupon websites, and whether I think it's less expensive to use coupons or buy the store's generic products. You may be surprised! : )

CVS week of 8/3 -8/9

Click here for CVS deals for this week (thanks to Coupon Cravings).

She added the printable coupons for many of the CVS deals here.

ALWAYS check at your local store to see if they accept coupons printed from the Internet...I will try to find the most recent corporate policies for each store and post them soon.


Click here to view some great deals at Menards (thanks to More Than Enough). A few of the items that are FREE after rebate are:

Plastic Step Stool
Up to 3 rolls of shelf liner
Up to 2 wash mitts or cleaning cloths

Plus, other good deals!

I'm baaaaack!!!!

After a wonderful wedding and a few weeks of needed "rest," I am back to scouring the couponing websites. I hope to be back in full swing within the next few days. The next few posts are a few deals that I've found recently. Remember, if you have any questions or comments, please email me or leave a comment on this site.
