Making Do


Monday, August 15, 2011

People please look at your circulars.

Today is a great opportunity to repeat this tip. Rite-aid has dove bar soap $9.99/8 pack. Right around the corner at least in this neighborhood Shoprite has 6/bar pack $4.99. So for the price of a 8/bar pack at the other store you can get 12 bars at Shoprite. Now if you are a savvy shopper like me;you will have your $1off coupon for each pack and pay only$7.98 for 12/bars. I only know this because I look at the circulars before at shop. Home depot has bounty $4.88/6rolls. Use your $1coupon now its $3.88. Walgreen's has bogo on large size stayfree pads. Use your bogo coupon and get 2/$2.50. Not free however if you are low its a good deal. Just a couple of things on my rador so far.

How do you define it?


This is actually a repost of my coupon terms.

When a store is having a BOGO promotion. It will depend on the stores' coupon policy how many coupons can be used with that purchase, Some stores will allow 2 one for each item ,other stores just 1. When you present a BOGO coupon to the store and they are not running a bogo promotion. You must present 2 items for each coupon. You must pay for one of those items. If the store is having Buy one get half off and you present a bogo coupon. You still will only have to pay for one item. You can also use two manufacture's coupons for that deal.

If you have another question. Please post in your reply.

Great deals for week. March 20th

First for all the sports fans. Shoprite has Perdue chicken wing sections 4.99$/4 lb bag that's a 1.25$/lb. If you have any of your 1.50$/3 cans starkist tuna. Shoprite has solid white tuna for .79/can. It will be .87 for 3/cans with coupon. Bounty 8/pk paper towel 3.99$ with store card and coupon. Great 4 day sale starting Wednesday Aunt Jemima waffles .99$ cents which is a great deal. Well I went to their facebook page watched a quick video and got a coupon 1$off 2. So now my price is .50/box instead of the usual 2.69/box coupons for waffles. Also quatro razors will be .99 with 3$ coupon in today's paper. There are many great deals at Shoprite this week. Please check your circular.
Walgrreen's Im going to give them another chance. BOGO Nature made vitamins. You can use a coupon on each bottle. Celadrin joint health 10$ this week with a 10$ register reward. This product is normally 29$ free. Method hand soap 2.99$ .99 with 2$off coupon. Then you still get a 2$ register reward for next purchase. Unless my rewards say otherwise I plan my shopping list to use them the same day. For instance Sunmaid raisins are 2/4$I will buy a carton with the reward from hand soap. Since some of these deals are local to this region. Check your circulars and let me know what deals you find.

How coupons are doubled.

Stores that say they double to a dollar will not exceed a dollar amount. If the stores says it will double up to .99 cents. It means you could get as much as 1.98$ if you have a .99cent or free whichever is less . This is Giant's policy. They also only double one like coupon. So if you have two boxes of cereal and a coupon for each one. They will only double one . You will get face value for the other one. I hope that answered your question.

I love couponing and love being able to share my techniques with others.  I give tips and I share my deals whenever I have any. What I find frustrating are the negative remarks I see posted when I post my consulting fees. Most of us have to work to manage our daily lives. Coupons have made it much less of a burden on me. However I do still have to pay bills just like all of you.  I would hope  you would understand  that. So that when you send a two page attachment with questions. I ask you to sign up for a personal consult with me. Since consulting is my business. Thanks .  Looking forward to your comments.

Learning to coupon is like riding a bike. Once you learn the fundmentals you never forget them. Everyone will develope their own style. Just like riding a bike no-one does it the same. Invest the time and effort to learn to coupon and you will have something that will pay you for life. Just like if your car is  not available you can always jump on your bike.

Golden Rule

Social media is a wonderful invention. It allows all of us to stay in touch. To instantly contact everyone. It also can allow some to lose their matters. I love to coupon. So it brings me joy to be able to share my techniques with whomever is interested. I can only share the knowledge that I have or give you another source to obtain the info you need. I am human and I make mistakes like everyone else. That being said if I make a mistake let me know in a respectful way. Please do not send me a message in all caps with exclamation points or posted to my facebook wall. That will not get my attention.Infact it does the opposite. Treat me the way you would want to be treated. Please. I look forward to more of your savings stories.

Start working on your wish list.

I cannot stress enough: coupons are money.  Just spend a small amount on the things you need so you can buy the things you want. Use your coupon savings to help you save for your vacation, put money in your child’s college fund or buy that piece of jewelry you have been looking at.
When you use coupons or just your store card have you noticed that your receipt tells you what you have saved during that shopping trip? Grocery stores and department stores both do this.   Imagine banking those savings. How quickly you could get your Wish List done!
Learn how to save with me and you will be on your way to being debt free!
