End of April....ALREADY!!!

You need to take a look over your coupons that are about to expire to see if there are any items you can't wait for the next sale on so that you can at least use the coupon.  Make sure to visit and Red Plum to grab any last coupons you want before they go away at month's end.  Remember that entering different zip codes will give you some different coupons.

Publix - Coupon to match with Mission Tortilla Sale

Mission Tortillas are on sale at Publix this week!  Go HERE to get a coupon for $0.75/1 to get them really cheap!

Earth Fare - New Coupons

I love to buy organic every chance I get.  That's why I was excited to see a bunch of new coupons out at Earth Fare.  These are all manufacturer's coupons so they can be used at any store.

You can also visit Whole Foods and Mambo Sprouts for printable coupons on organic foods.  If you haven't registered wth Mambo Sprouts yet, be sure to do so in order to receive coupons by mail.

Shutterfly - Don't miss out on 3 Free Custom Photo Cards - Ends TODAY!

Don't forget to grab your 3 FREE Custom Photo Cards from Shutterfly using code CARDS4MOM.  This code expires today so hurry!!  These are wonderful Mother's Day cards for any mother or grandmother.  I made them again this year since they were loved so much last year by the grandmothers.  It's cheaper and more personal then purchasing a card from the shelf at your local store.

eCoupons Knowledge for my Kroger Shoppers

You can load Kroger eCoupons onto your Kroger card from the internet.  It might be a good idea to make note of what coupons you load so that you will know what you have to use.  These eCoupons will automatically be used when your card is swiped at checkout upon purchasing the qualifying products.  The eCoupon is considered a store coupon so be sure to stack these with any manufacturer's coupons you might have.    Kroger also accepts Cellfire and Shortcuts eCoupons so make sure to visit those sites as well before your shopping trip.

Tip of the Day - Grab a couple of those in-store coupons

While shopping you will run across coupons posted throughout the store.  They may come from the dispensers that spit one coupon at a time out, from tear pads or they may even peel off of the front of a product itself.  You need to keep your eye out for these coupons.  If it is for a product you buy, stop and grab a couple.  Most people make the mistake of thinking these types of coupons must be used during your current shopping trip but this is not so.  Grab, tear or peel a couple off and organize them in your coupon book to save for a good sale.

Wednesday, April 28, 2010


It's Wednesday!  The day grocery stores post their new sale ads for the week.  So get on Southern Savers and see what your local store has to offer.  Doing it today will allow you time to create your grocery list, find your coupons and even order coupons from My Coupon Hunter if need be. Good Luck!

Staples - $1 Packs of Paper and FREE Batteries with Staples Rewards

I love Staples!  I had never gone into a Staples until I started paying attention to their ads and realizing that you could get free stuff!  I never pay more then $1 for a pack of paper anymore thanks to Staples.  So if you are wondering if it's worth paying for the paper to print all those is when it's this cheap!  This week they have a couple of awesome deals.

Get a 20-Pack of Duracell AA Batteries for $9.99 and you will get 100% of it back in Staples Rewards!

Buy 2 Hammermill 500 Sheet Reams of Copy Paper for $6.49 each
Submit the Easy Rebate to get cash back of $10.98
Making your final cost $1.00 each!

The Easy Rebates at Staples are just that...EASY!  Once you signup online, you just enter the information from the receipts you receive at checkout and they will mail you a check.  That's it!

Walgreens: Off Clip-Ons Deal

Walgreens has a good deal on Off Clip-Ons to get the summer started.

$17.98 - 2 Off Clip-Ons (8.99 each)
-  8.99  B1G1 Printable Coupon
-  2.00  $2/1 Printable Coupon
-  4.00 $2/1 from Walgreens May Coupon Booklet
= $2.99 total or $1.50 each

The Walgreens May Coupon Booklet can be found in the front of any Walgreens where their weekly sales ads are stacked up.  The coupon is actually for $2/1 Off Clip-On but should take $4 off since you are purchasing two.  This brings up an interesting teaching point.  In my experience, whether they will take both manufacturer's coupons is up to the store.  When you have a B1G1 free coupon, they considered that coupon being used for the item you are getting for free therefore you can still use a second manufacturer's coupon for the first item.  Most stores will allow this but some will say that you are trying to use two manufacturer's coupons for the same products.  It just depends on how they look at it.

Clark Color Labs - 35% off + 100 Free Prints with $20 order

Mother's Day is coming up so it would be the perfect time to make a photo book or gift for any mom or grandmother at Clark Color Labs.  Use code BESTMOM to get 35% off.  If you spend $20, you can get 100 FREE photo prints using code 100FREE before May 1, 2010.  Order by April 28th to make sure your gift will arrive in time for Mother's Day.

Tip of the Day - Calculating Your Saving

If you are trying to keep track of how much you are saving your family with shopping sales and using coupons, you need to look at your receipt closely.  Most grocery stores will have a "Savings Summary" that will nicely total your amounts saved for vendor coupons, store coupons, sales, etc.  What this summary probably won't take into consideration is any rain checks.  When you use rain checks, they often manually enter the price of the item according to the rain check.  If this happens, the computer does not see this as a savings of any kind.  When you cash in your rain checks, make sure to add the difference in the regular price and rain check price to your total savings.  Otherwise your savings is not truly correct and your numbers will show less saving then you actually had.  You know we don't want that, now do we?!

Publix - Have I said I love Publix?

I had another wonderful week of shopping at Publix.  Here's what my savings looked like:

Shelf Cost:  $168.93
Coupons:  $37.02
Discounts:  $70.62
Rebates Used:  $10.00
Amount Spent:  $51.29
Percentage Saved:  70%

I had a Publix gift card that I recieved from the Kimberly Clark rebate (Huggies products basically) that I posted about on Friday.  If I receive a gift card, I include it in my savings once I use the card.  If I'm receiving a cash rebate, I count it in my savings the day I purchase the items I'll be receiving the rebate on.  Make sense?

Here are some of my best deals:

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta: (4 boxes) $1.79- $0.89 BOGO Sale - (2) $1/2 Manuf Coupon =  $0.39 per box
Valley Fresh Frozen Veggies:  (4 bags) $2.39 each - 1.19 BOGO Sale - $1.00 for $0.50/1 Manuf Coupons that doubled = $0.19 per bag
Pita and Bagel Chips: (6 bags)  $3.29 each - $1.29 each with rain check price - (3) Buy one Pita Chip get one Bagel Chip free peeled off the front of the Bagel Chip bag = $1.00 per bag
Cascandian Frozen Organic Fruits:  (4 bags) $3.49 each - $1.50 each sale price - (1) Publix $2/3 Cascandian Frozen Veggies or Fruits - (2) $1/1 Cascandian Product Manuf Coupon - (1) $1/2 Cascandian Products Manuf Coupon = $0.74 each
Cascandian Organic Chewy Granola Bars:  (3 boxes) $3.99 each - $1.99 BOGO Sale - (1) Publix $2/3 Cascandian Granola Bars or Cereal - (3) $1/1 Cascandian Products Manuf Coupon = $0.33 each
Sargento Shredded Cheese:  (3 bags) $3.19 each - $1.19 Sale - (3) $1/1 Manuf Coupon = $1.00 a bag

I didn't get anything for free today but who's cares!  I still saved 70%!

(usually 3-6%).  Plus you get $5 when you join.  There's no catch.  Anytime you are going to shop online anyway, make sure to start at Ebates or Shop at Home.

Tip of the Day - Create a seperate e-mail address for couponing

I know you are now reading my blog and signing up for all these free samples and coupons.  In doing so, your e-mail account might be a bit busier then it used to be.  My suggestion is to open a gmail or yahoo e-mail account that you use just for couponing.  Whenever you register for that free sample or newsletter, use the new address so that your main e-mail account does not become overloaded with e-mails you may not have time to go through everyday.  This way you can visit the account a couple of times per week and do a mass delete if you have to!

$3/1 Raid Max Bug Barrier Starter Kit

With warm weather, we also start to see those annoying little things called bugs!  Visit Right at Home to print a coupon for $3/1 Raid Max Bug Barrier Starter Kit.  You can spray it at the base of doors and windows to keep bugs from getting into your home.

All You Magazine Coupons for May

You may have already noticed on Southern Savers that they will refer to an ALL YOU coupon from a certain month.  They are referring to the ALL YOU magazine.  It is filled with coupons each month and many people get a subscription just to have access to the coupons.  You can find the magazine only at Wal-Mart for around $2.25 or go HERE to get two free trial magazines and a year's subscription for only $14.90.  I recommend getting a subscription because it is an interesting magazine and the subscription is cheaper, of course, then picking it up at Wal-Mart each month.

Tip of the Day - Don't miss a week of deals

Don't miss a week of shopping!  I know this sounds hard to most of you or some of you may be saying "woo-hoo"!  You've probably already learned that the sales change each week.  In order to really save large amounts of money you must do some stockpiling.  I can almost bet that each week there is going to be at least a few items on sale that you need purchase in order to replenish your stockpile.  If you miss this sale, you may have to pay full price for them in a week or two.  You may end up hitting a store or two every week but it shouldn't take you as long since you will have your list ready before you get there and you are not buying a huge shopping cart full of items since you go each week.  There are weeks, like when the kids are sick, where it just won't be worth it and that's okay.  You can't get every deal and you shouldn't stress yourself out trying to do so.  Try to plan a shopping trip into your weekly schedule to get the deals but don't feel as though you're not doing well in your couponing if you miss a week every once in a awhile.  We're all human!

One Year Subscription to Shape Magazine for $3.65 - TODAY ONLY

This was for one day only and has now EXPIRED but make sure to visit Best Deal Magazines often to see what the new deal for the day is!

Through midnight tonight (Tuesday) get 12 Shape magazines for only $3.65 at Best Deal Magazines using coupon code PXSS425.  Each day they have a deal on a different magazine that only last for 24 hours so check it out daily if you are looking for a cheap subscription to a specific magazine.  These deals would make great gifts.  Plus get 5 free gifts when you sign up with Best Deal Magazines.

Print it while it's hot - B1G1 Classico Pasta Sauce has a new coupon out for B1G1 Classico Sauce.  If you don't see it using your zip code then try zip code 03104.  I did see an unadvertised B1G1 sale on these at my local Publix but I'm sure that sale would end today.  Using a B1G1 coupon on a B1G1 sale would give you free pasta sauce at most stores (stores handle the B1G1 coupons differently on B1G1 deals).

Code for Pampers Gifts to Grow

Here's a code for 10 more Pampers Gift to Grow Points.  If you use Pampers brand products at all and haven't signed up for their rewards program, I suggest you do so!


B1G1 Lay's Kettle Chips

Okay so I know I shouldn't eat these but they are soooo good!!  Visit Lay's Be Snack Ready on facebook and receive a B1G1 coupon.  I tried something I've never tried before when printing this coupon and it actually worked.  When I clicked print, my printer information box came up asking if I was ready to print and under "Number of Copies" I clicked 3.  It did print 3 B1G1 coupons!  This probably isn't exactly coupon legal but I do have 3 legitimate coupons!
