Matching Sales with Coupons

Alright you have your what?  You match your coupons with sales to save the most!  Every Sunday in my newspaper I take the out of the ads.  I grab my sharpie and a circle every item I need, want, or think is a great deal.  Then I match those deals that with my coupons.  After I finish my list, I then head over to the Shopping Wizard which is a FREE service from the Savvy Shopper!  She lists items on sale (advertised and not advertised) for national retail chains, Utah grocery stores and Georgia grocery stores.  She ranks the the deal, shows you what coupons to use, and what your final price will be.  How easy is that!!! She does ALL the work for you.  If she doesn't match up the stores you shop up, then I suggest you Google what ever store you need match ups.  Seriously, I love how much work and time she saves me!!!  There are tons of great tutorials to help you get started with couponing.  I also follow her on Facebook here, so I can know when she post more great deals! This is what the Savvy Shopper looks like.

More Walmarts Are Doubling Coupons!

I just saw on Walmart's Facebook page they are testing more areas for double coupons. 
"Thanks for your inquiry regarding Walmart doubling coupons. We have not updated our coupon policy. We are testing this idea in 3 markets across the country for a limited time in Charleston, WV, Charleston, SC and Tucson, AZ. It is an extension of our Ad Match Policy that gives the store the ability to match competitor coupons in a local area. As an example, Kroger is doubling coupons in West Virginia so Walmart is matching them during the test."

Library=Free Entertainment

It only took me 9 months to finally get a new library card.  When I lived in Utah County, I frequented the Provo library.  I am not sure why it took me so long to get my SLC Library card, but I am making up for lost time.  I majored in English in college, so obviously I am a lover of reading.  Since having my baby girl, I have hardly had ANY time to do you mom's do that?!?  I used to read at least a book a week.  There has been a void in my life...not being able to read.  Light bulb:  I remembered how I used to check out audiobooks for FREE at the library.  I listened to them in my car bc I am not a music person.  I have "read" 4 books in two weeks thanks to audiobooks.  I listed as a fold laundry, clean dishes, feed my baby, driving around, etc. 
Public library cards are FREE.  You can have access to FREE books, audiobooks, CD, DVDs, story tellers, and other activities.  Be sure to check out your local library for FREE entertainment.  Anyone have any book suggestions for me?

Resuable Bags

How to Coupon:  Use Resuable Bags
I am not a hippy by any means; however, I do feel guilty about the amount of paper/newspaper I use couponing.  Yes, I do recycle.  I tried thinking of ways I could help balance out my ways more so...Enter Recyclable Bags.  I have "green" bags for nearly every store.  They cost around a buck.  Best part is a LOT of stores give you money or rewards for using "green" bags!  Target gives you 5 cents per bag, Harmons gives you 5 cents per bag, Sunflower gives you 5 or 10 cents (can't remember) per bag, Smith's (Kroger) gives you 5 pts per bag, etc.  The "green" bags pay for themselves in a couple of trips, and they save the enviornment at the same time!

Living on your stock pile

Obviously I have been gone for a bit.  I have had a jammed pack summer.  I have been sooooo busy that I have rarely couponed.  I know blaspheme right!  Instead I have been living on my stock pile.  I have been buying dairy, meats, and produce...and that is about it.  I started back on couponing last week bc my stock pile was starting to dwindle.   This is another reason I LOVE couponing.  To be able to the freedom to take "breaks" from shopping from time to time is a much needed break for all.  I think I came back at the perfect time too!  I scored tons of  50 cent Kellogg's cereal!  (Still on sale at Harmons and most Associated Foods store in Utah.)  Here to me coming back!  Keep the questions coming!

Trial Size

How to Coupon:  Buying trial size. 
When my coupon are about to expire, I gather them up and head to travel section at Walmart.  First, I check to see if my coupons say excludes trial/travel size.  Often you get score FREE items, and sometimes you can even get overage to help pay for your produce. 

All You

How to Coupon:  Get a subscription or buy a copy of All You at Walmart.
I know I have talked a lot about the magazine All You, but I cannot say enough about how much I LOVE this magazine.  This magazine retails anywhere from $1.88 to $2.49 depending on your Walmart, or you can get a subscription for the year for a little less than $20.  Each magazine comes with $60-$100 worth of coupons.  I use at least half of these coupons.  I personally buy a copy every month...I am waiting to find a cheaper subscription price.
