Educating Yourself on Fraudulent Coupons


Yesterday as I was in Fry’s, I couldn’t help but notice a paper taped to the shelf showing that a high value $8/1 Huggies Diapers coupon had surfaced in my local store – and my store had caught it.  I have to say I was a little sad .. knowing that a store that is […]

Participating in a “Stockpile Swap” (& Why it’s Necessary)


Stockpile “Swapping”: Definitely not a term you hear of every day…..  But it definitely is something that some of you may partake in.

NEW 2012 “Savings Spreadsheet”–Track your Yearly Savings


Last year, 2011, I introduced a “Savings Spreadsheet” to help those of you who love to crunch numbers, keep track of your savings with coupons through the year.
