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!

Wouldn't these be wonderful at a wedding or as a bridal/baby shower thank you? There are so many fun things you could do with these little boxes. You can check out all of Angilyn's designs at Simple Tastes, etsy shop. She also does other cute and thoughtful gifts. You can also check out Simple Tastes on Facebook.
Angilyn - Thanks again for sending me such a fun gift - can't wait to impress my family at Thanksgiving :)

I go to the Syracuse Site (West Point and Syracuse are at the same Winter/Indoor location) to pick up my basket and volunteer. I just wanted to send a special thanks to Royalty Services Group for allowing us to use their warehouse for the winter months - free of charge :)

Here are a few pictures of our site.
Volunteers distributing yummy fruits and veggies - participants get 2 white baskets (one basket is wet and the other is dry)
Wow! That's a lot of baskets!
These are our wonderful volunteers who came to help out early on a chilly November morning. That's Bryan from Royalty Services Group in the back on the right - call him when you need help :)
This is where the line starts....participants are anxiously waiting to pick up their fruits and veggies.
Don't forget to order your basket today. There are a lot of locations available to choose from. First time baskets cost $19.50 (they will be $16.50 after the first order). You can also choose from lots of yummy extras too (pumpkin bread, a citrus pack as well as a holiday box - loaded with lots of Thanksgiving trimmings).

I'm sure there are many deals being offered. Here's a few that I thought you'd like:
Applebee's Veteran's and active-duty men and women are entitled to a free entree at Applebee's on Veteran's Day. Just stroll in, identify yourself as a vet or a member of the military, and order off the menu.
Krispy Kreme To honor America's service men and women, Krispy's giving veterans and active military personnel who visit any participating U.S. Krispy Kreme store on Veteran's Day one free donut of his or her choosing
Outback Steakhouse If you're active duty military or a veteran you can grab a free Bloomin Onion and drink at Outback Steakhouse.
~ I just personally wanted to thank anyone that is a Veteran or in the military for keeping me safe and preserving the freedoms I enjoy daily! You men and women deserve a day of recognition!~
I got an email from RedPlum this morning stating that their 11/15 coupon book was the biggest of the year. I got mine in the mail yesterday. Lots of great savings....did you get yours?
You can check this link to see if it will be coming by mail or newspaper.

I've blogged about this before, but it's always worth repeating! Now that Albertson's has officially closed their doors in Utah (except for a few locations - here's a link to a friends blog for exact locations that are still open) the options for grocery shopping are limited. If you're like me, I always want a good deal.
Smith's sells Kroger brands. Did you know that you can automatically load coupons onto your Smith's card?
Here are a few links where you can load your Smith's card number into the system and fill it with coupons so when you go shopping and scan your card, it automatically gives you the coupon discount. No cutting, clipping or headache at the register. Easy Peasy!
Happy Shopping! If you want to learn a few shortcuts and savings tips - let me know, I teach a great FREE coupon class :D) (email@example.com)
