About Me

I'm a Utah mom, just trying to make ends meet. Several years ago, I was introduced to a new way of couponing. I've been addicted ever since. I have a hard time paying full price for anything anymore.

I love couponing so much, I decided to become a teacher for Grocery Smarts.

I teach free classes and show you how to get everything you need at the grocery store and still leave $$$ in your pocket. I'll also teach you the best ways to get and organize your coupons. The best part of the class is when I show you how to match your current coupons up with the current local sales - getting the most bang for your buck!

Random Stuff.....

I had a lot of things going through my mind today so this is really a bunch of random things.

Tracie sent me a tip (you can do this too, see upper left hand corner of blog). Her hubby went to the store the other day to pick up some items and when he got home he handed her a stack of coupons. She asked him where he got them and he said the self checkout at the grocery store. I thought this was really nice, but with that being said I suggest proceeding with caution and courtesy. Many people either don't want or forget to pick up the coupons (catalina's) that spit out of the self serve registers. Here's where you proceed with caution. If you see that there are coupons available it is best to ask the attendant if you can have them, especially if the coupons are worth a dollar amount off your next shopping trip. This is a great place to pick up some extra coupons. Thanks for the tip!

Caselot - Macey's is having another caselot sale. If any of you saw Janet Eyring's segment on Studio 5 today she was showing some of the best deals there. Here are a couple of things she mentioned as good deals:

Country Fresh Farms powdered milk: Reg $12.xx a can, on sale for $5.99 (has a 15 year shelf life).
55 gallon water drum: Reg $63.xx, on sale for $39.99
Western Family corn and beans: **Didn't catch Reg price, on sale for $.49/can (case of 24)
Western Family applesauce: Reg $.89/can, on sale for $.59/can (case of 24)
Western Family Mandarin Oranges: **Didn't catch Reg price, on sale for $.39/can (case of 24)
**On the ones I did not catch the reg price - I'm sure these are pretty good sale prices since she probably brought some of the best deals to show** You can check your local ad for more deals.

Coupons by mail. I had 2 wonderful surprises in my mailbox today. I had a coupon book from Smith's with at least 20 + coupons in it. I also got a coupon book from Pillsbury with $10.00 of savings inside. I've posted the link to Pillsbury (check 12/31/08 blog entry) to get their book of free coupons. If you've already ordered one - check your mailbox.

Lastly - check out Janet Eyring's blog for a free coupon for Suave shampoo (TODAY ONLY).

How's that for random?
