Hey, Y'all!

I didn't see this coming at all.  Harris Teeter is having an abbreviated Super Doubles event.  It starts Sunday and ends on Tuesday...ONLY 3 days to take advantage of these super coupon deals.  So, go to your favorite coupon database and find all those $2 coupons.  All your $2 coupons will double up to $4!!!  Here's a link to my favorite coupon database: Hot Coupon World

I love this because I have two days to hunt for those high $ coupons.  But, don't just get the $2 coupons.  Any coupon with a face value of $2 or less will double.  So, 25¢ double to 50¢, 75¢ double to $1.50, $1.25 double to $2.50, $1.50 double to $3, etc. up to $2 that will double to $4.

Get out your inserts, printables, and magazines.  Get all those $1+ coupons and head over to Harris Teeter.  No minimum purchase is required but you are limited to only 20 coupons per household per day.  Pick your favorite 60 coupons and go all three days. 

Here are the links to some great printable websites: (The coupons just reloaded cause its the first of the month)
Here are the links to the coupons expected this weekend in the Sunday newspaper inserts:
Follow this tips for some great deals:
  • Don't go shopping while hungry...EAT FIRST!
  • Only buy what you will eat or use.
  • Only buy items that are on sale for at least 30% or more discount.
  • Take your calculator, marker, and printed ad
  • Read your coupon carefully (including the fine print)
  • Get rain checks for any advertised item that was sold out (HTeeter rain checks do not expire)
  • Go to HTeeter's website and (login first and then) download the eVic digital coupons to your card.
  • Finally, if you do not have a Harris Teeter eVic loyalty card, get one BEFORE you shop.

Happy Super Couponing!​

Living off the Stores...

Free Coupon Classes
Thursdays, October 8th & October 29th; 7 PM-9 PM
Queen's Chapel United Methodist Church, Beltsville, MD

Hey, Everyone!

Thought I would drop y'all a line about my coupon shopping this summer.  In short, I haven't done any supermarket couponing since May/June.  My family has been living off the "stores" in our basement storehouse.  We have supplemented them with purchases at Sam's Club and HMart for our dairy (eggs & milk), produce and meats.  My CVS shopping has also been limited but I have done some couponing for staples like laundry soap, toilet tissue and paper towels.

We have been saving money by not shopping.  Yes, tons of fabulous coupons have expired in my dandy brand new coupon carrier.  But, I have saved lots of money by using what I have in my "storehouse" and freezer.  The savings could have been much more but my dear husband is addicted to Sam's Club and Costco.  So, he sneaks to those stores on a regular basis.  Despite that, we still saved because I would have been going to the supermarket AND to Sam's and Costco, as well.

Now, is as good a time as any to start beefing up your pantry to carry you deep into the winter months.  Stock up on fixin's for hearty soups, stews, casseroles, and desserts.  Freeze the last of the summer bounty of veggies and fruits before the first frost.  Grab extra family size packs of poultry and meats of your choice when they are on sale or reduced for quick sale.  Freeze in smaller packages to make them more likely to be used for small family dinners or grouped for larger holiday feasts. 

See a real as much as you can afford and store or freeze.  Remember, only buy what you will use, eat, or share.  Build up your storehouse so that you can help your family and bless others from the bounty.

Three inserts this weekend:  RedPlum    SmartSource    P&G BrandSaver
 Check the expiration dates closely.  Some coupons seem to be expiring in as little as one to two weeks!

Happy Couponing!

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 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!​
