A Day Of Remembrance...

A lot of blogs/facebook communities will take a Moment of Silence 8:46amEST to 10:03amEST. For one hour and 17 minutes on Sunday they will not be posting on their Facebook pages or blogs to commemorate the 10th anniversary. We know a lot of Police Officers and Fire Fighters...and have both in the family. We know someone who was in the tower that day...and find it hard to see that video of the planes and towers, over and over again. We will post our normal Sunday items on Monday morning...please understand the entire day of silence here. Blessings to you, and your family. Dannelle

Target Issues...

Some people have had issues with their Target stores telling them that they can't use coupons on trial sized items - that it is a NEW policy of the company. This is not true. First of all, it is always a good thing to have a copy of the store policy with you, if you are shopping there. You can get the Target policy off their website HERE . If you DO have a problem, you have every right to request that they call customer relations regarding the dispute so that the matter can be rectified immediately. **Apparently, there was SOME discussion of a new policy that came down through the grapevine incorrectly...but the bottom line is that stores do NOT have the power to add to or adjust the corporate coupon policy. I hope that helps you eliminate any possible frustration at the registers...happy shopping!

Menard's Rebate Deals This Week (9/11)

I shared info about their Rebate program last year ... see here. This is kind of like the Register Rewards at Walgreen's but you have to mail in the form to get your perks back...even though you can still roll them along. What is nice is the simple fact that these do NOT expire, so you can be patient and roll them over when you find the right deal. I LOVE the FREE after rebate items, but will settle for less than free, if I can use up old rebate checks to make up the difference. =) This is NOT all the deals in the flier - just the ones that are FREE or practically FREE: Did I miss one? Let me know! Sally Hansen Beauty Tools $2.49 - $2.00 MIR -use $1/1 coupon from the 7/31 RP = $.51 MONEY MAKER!!!!!!!!!!

Cub Foods - saved 101% (you read it correctly...)

I LOVE shopping at Cub Foods!! A lot of people forget that they take expired coupons for up to 3 months...that can get you some really great deals, as you will see below. I had BIG plans for Cub Foods today - and their extra box tops promo: I was going to play the "grocery game" where I check out, leave the store and go back in to shop again. I couldn't do it because after coupons, my total was $.07 - the cashier was so excited that she called over the other cashiers to see.   (sigh) They all knew me and there was no way I could back in and shop again. Here is what  I got today (27 items): For the Box Tops deal (I got a bonus 35 box tops) 6 Betty Crocker Boxed Potatoes 1 can corn 3 cans refried OEP bean then I added: 2 boxes Purina One cat food 1 # ground beef 1# grapes 5 can Red Gold Tomatoes 1 Loaf Cub White Bread 4 Simply Single OJ Uncle Ben's Ready Rice Coupons Used: Store coupons for FREE Grapes, 10/$5 BTFE items, Red Gold Tomatoes $.69 (l

Johnsonville Coupon

In my TV segment that airs on Tuesday, you might see me refer to the Johnsonville Sale at Copp's (and Pick N Save) : $3.88 for a 1# pack of brats or Italian Sausage. I mentioned the $1/1 coupon on their website and how it brings it down to $1.88, after doubling, on a Wednesday. I say you MIGHT as they shot almost 2 hours with me and I have NO idea how they will pare that down to a 3-4 minute segment, LOL! HERE is that coupon - print it NOW before it's out of prints...I plan to get the Italian Sausage - it only takes 2 cooked and crumbled ones to make a super tasty lasagna!
