Purina Coupons

Today in the paper, there is a Purina One dog food coupon for $3.00 off an 18 lb. bag. The bags are on sale at Target for $16.99(regularly $18.99) so with the coupon, that is $13.99/bag. That is a great deal--especailly if you have big dog like me.

Mattresses can be really expensive, but in most cases I have found that if you do your homework, you get what you pay for. Be sure to lie on a mattress for at least 15 minutes before deciding if you like it. Be sure to have your partner with you. I recently saved about $400.00 by ordering a mattress online. I first tried similar mattresses in stores and made sure I was comparing apples with apples. It can be confusing. Take your time and be sure before you "jump in". Click the link above to see a good online mattress resource.

People are always amazed when they learn that clipping coupons from the newspaper is not the only source. Coupons are available on the web by clipping services like the http://www.thecouponclippers.com/.  You can pay a fee for them to clip and you can get mulitples of the coupons you use. How clever is that? I use this service every week. When a coupon of an item I use frequently (like canned tomatoes) becomes available, I order several--sometimes 10  coupons and when that item goes on sale, I stock up.

Having$.cents Workshop

I will be holding a Having$.cents workshop Wednesday, February 3rd @ 6:30 pm in the Shenandoah area. To sign up and get directions email me makingcents@ymail.com
Good morning. Today is grocery day for me. I like Tuesdays because the shelves have usually been restocked from the weekend and there aren't a lot of people in the store,which makes it easier to shop with coupons. It takes a little more time in the check out line when you are price-matching and using coupons. It's never fun for the other patrons to wait in line behind a serious couponer, but if you are organized, checkout can be a whiz. Being organzied means being courteous.
