https://www.facebook.com/groups/CVSCouponingRocks/

Good Saturday morning!

Here's a great coupon group for you to join. However, I am warning you that your fbk posts will quickly fill up with their awesome deals. Please create a fbk account in your great great grannies' name just for coupon news feeds, posts, and updates BEFORE joining the CVS coupon group or any like product websites for coupons.

Don't forget to get your newspapers or better yet, ask your neighbors friends and co-workers for their inserts.

Fwd: CVS Ad Deals 8/23-8/29/15 FREE Little Remedies PediaCare! ($4.29 Value) PLUS more deals!

Hey, Y'all!

First, I just wanted to give you an update on my grandkids who are visiting with us.  They are staying another week!  Okay, yes we (Big Hamp and I) are happy and OMGoodness are we tired.  Eleven grandkids who never seem to get tired can either send you to bed for a long winter's nap or make you rise to the occasion.  We have risen! :o) 

This week we are taking four of the youngest to Dutch Wonderland in
Lancaster, PA for a three day camping trip.  We are leaving on Wednesday and returning Saturday morning.  This trip will be a piece of cake with just four and not eleven grands along for the ride.

I am posting the coupon news early because we will be busy for the next couple of days getting ready for our trip.  I will have more time after Tuesday but wanted you to get a head start on saving for the coming Labor Day weekend and Back-to-School homework routine.
  • Sneak Peak 8.30.15 Coupons
  • Subscribe to Cuckoo for Coupon Deals - Subscribe only for the deals you want to see and how often you want to see them in your email. 
  • Can't find that coupon for a specific product? Try using a coupon database.  Here's the one I use most often:  HotCouponWorld
  • Here's the links to several others I have used with great success.   If you don't find coupons for your product on one database, you should search at least one other database:  Click this link for several other coupon databases.
You really do need a "throw away" email address just for all of your coupon emails.  How about "EvaCoupons" or "QponJeff"@whatever.com?  Whatever you decide, do it before your inbox bursts at the seams from the tons of coupon stuff you will receive when you register on different websites.  I did not do that and now I am stuck with all this coupon stuff mixed in with my regular emails.  I must get a new email address.  Haven't decided on a new catchy name just yet.  Any suggestions?

Ready...set...Happy Couponing!

Ad Scans & Deals...ShopRite Weekly Ad Preview (MD Edition)

​Hey, Y'all!

I must apologize.  This post was started Thursday evening!!!  But, I have been juggling couponing with my 11 grand-kids this week and the grand-kids won :o)  We have had an awesome time these last 7 days and I can't wait till they leave so they can hurry up and come back again. 

I was blessed to take one of my newest Coupon Bees on her first very first coupon adventure (@ShopRite) Thursday evening.  Her savings were over $80 (including sales & coupons).  She got $130 worth of groceries for $50!  She was so happy and so was I.  I could have given her the coupons or shopped for her but instead I taught her to coupon. "...teach a man (or woman) to fish and he (or she) will eat for a lifetime."

Here's one lesson I taught her.  Go to the ShopRite homepage (or CVS, Walgreens, RiteAid, Giant, etc) a day or two before the end of their sales cycle.  For ShopRite, their new ads appear in the wee hours each Friday morning or sometime on Thursday for the pharmacies. 

Weekly *Ad Scans and Coupon Deals Links
(*Ad Scans are previews of the sales expected at a store or pharmacy the following week.)

You can see the weekly ShopRite ad for the current week and the next week in the screen shot below. 



​When you compare the current week's prices with the coming week's prices, that will tell you whether to buy this week or wait until next week. 

Finally, we are nearing the end of the month.  You know what that means?  Time to download the last of those printable coupons this month before the new ones are posted.  Here's a few links to get you started:  (Bookmark these links and refer back to them at the beginning and end of each month)

I no longer "mourn" missed sales because I know that there will always be another sale with some awesome coupons to match them.

​Happy Couponing!​

Super Doubles at HT & other stuff, too...

Hey, Y'all!

Just one Insert expected this weekend (SmartSource 8/16/15).  Lots of great coupons to help you stay within your Back-to-School budget.

Staples, WalMart, and your local supermarkets are having some awesome back-to-school sales.  Match up those coupons from the last couple of weeks of inserts and you can send your little ones and bigger one off to school and ready to learn. 

Staples still has the 1¢ per ream paper on sale at least until the end of this week.

Harris Teeter's "Super Doubles" event starts this morning at 7 am and ends next Tuesday at the close of business.  During HT's super doubles event,  all $2 coupons are worth a whopping $4! The only thing is that a lot of coupons over $1 are now saying, "Do Not Double". 

I rarely shop at HT because their prices are so much higher than the other stores in my area here in Maryland.  Super Doubles more than make up that difference. 

I have ton of rain checks from HT and I will be shopping with those and pairing them to some great coupons.  I love rain checks because I can make my own sale when I have more money for shopping or the perfect coupon.  My rain checks were for items on sale but not available in the store.  Super Doubles + rainchecks + coupons = Great Savings!!

Ebates

Hey, Y'all!

Y'all know I'm all about saving money.  Saving dollars, when you don't have to do anything, is even better.  All I have to do is click one button when I visit a website to make a purchase and Ebates does the rest.  My Ebates checks come to me on a regular basis (I do a lot of online shopping) without having to ask for it or send in forms or receipts. 

I have included the section of an email I received this morning telling me that my next Ebates payout will be $26.90.  That's based on a percentage (varies with each website) of the purchases I have made over the last couple of months.

If you click on the little man below, you will be able to find out how to join in on the Ebates savings when you shop online.  It's important to click on the little man because I will get $5 if two of y'all click and join Ebates, too...And, make a purchase of $25 sometime in the future (no time limit).   $5 is $5 and I'm not too proud to accept $5 whenever it shows up :o)

I have been a member of Ebates for about 9 months and have saved over $50!!!  Every penny helps put groceries on my table or fuel in my gas tank.

My Ebates

Cash Back Summary

  • Recently Added
    • $3.15 Microsoft Store
    • $2.45 Microsoft Store
  • $19.90 Big Fat Payment last payout two months ago (pay out via a check every three months)
  • 08/15/2015 Next Big Fat Check Payment
  • $32.50 Current Total Cash Back Due to Me 8.18.15
​I will share my savings strategies with Saving Star next time.  In the meantime...

Happy Couponing!

Two Inserts for 8.9.15

Hey, Y'all!

I have not been on a supermarket couponing adventure for nearly two months!  My father has been ill.  He has been in the hospital 8 times since the beginning of the year.  The last time was this past Monday.  But, God is merciful and has allowed him to still be on this side of Heaven a little while longer. 

I have a stack of inserts from which I have not clipped a single coupon.  But, I think I will have to go into coupon overdrive because my 11 grandkids will be spending the coming week with us.  They eat like football players and I have to go into super coupon shopping mode before they arrive this weekend.

There are just two inserts this weekend but we should still be able to get some great deals on lots of products.  School coupons in last week's inserts can make for some awesome school deals this week, too.  Don't forget to get the 1¢/ream paper at Staples this week.  The deal was extended another week.  It just might appear next week, too.  Bookmark Staples.com/coupons and check back each week to see the hidden coupon deals at Staples.  Why doesn't everyone do this?

Two inserts this week:Check the expiration dates carefully because some coupons have only two weeks before they expire.
Hope you have been checking out the reloaded printable coupons.  Each month the most popular printable coupon sites are reloaded with lots of coupons for great deals.  In most cases, you only have to register with you email address.  Don't use your regular email address.  Create an email address just for your coupon email.  Something fun like, "CouponJane@abcmail.com".  I should have done that four years ago but I didn't.  Now, my email address is overrun with coupon emails that fill up my email box everyday.

That's it for now...
Happy Couponing!
