Weekend Quickies

Hey, Y'all!

We are all crying about the yucky weather this coming weekend.  But, there is a sunny side to all of this rainy weather besides May flowers.  Rainy weather is great couponing weather.  The stores will be empty and the shelves full.  So, right after church (or before), head out to your favorite supermarket.  It is supposed to be rainy here in Maryland for the next 5-7 days.  I am heading out this afternoon and again tomorrow. 

Awesome coupons expected this weekend.  Check each newspaper you buy or have delivered to be sure that all 5 of your inserts are inside.  Unfortunately, people are actually stealing the inserts from the newspapers. 

Look through your inserts and inspect each coupon for the expiration dates.  I have noticed a trend where coupons have expiration dates of less than 1 week after they appear in the inserts. 

Here are the five inserts we are looking for this weekend:
The five inserts expected this weekend:  RedPlum #1   RedPlum #2      SmartSource #1    SmartSource #2  P&G 5/1
The actual inserts and the coupons they contain will vary from state to state, city to city, and even from one neighborhood to another.  The face value of the coupons and the number of inserts will also depend on the region, city, or state where you buy your paper.

Local Deal:  Shoppers -1 doz. Eggs - 88¢/dz!!  Over the next several weeks/months egg and poultry prices should be really great.  The outdoor grilling season will be in full force right around Memorial Day and there should be plenty of chicken, rib, and hot dog sales showing up in your local stores.  Also, look for great sale prices on bbq sauce, pickles, relish, mustard, and ketchup, too.

Other Store Sneak Peeks - updated bi-weekly as new sneak peeks become available

 Next, don't forget to get rain checks when an item you want is gone.  Save those rain checks and make your own sale when coupons for those items become available...OR write to the manufacturer(s) and request coupons OR go their website or facebook page to see if they have coupons available. 

Finally, if you ever need a coupon for an item and need help finding one, please send me an email or give me a phone call.  I usually have pretty good luck finding coupons for items. 

Happy Couponing!
