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!

~ $19.99 is the magic price ~

Years ago when I was in college I took a sales class. We analyzed a variety of ways people market their products. Well let me tell you... I may not remember too much about that class, but the one thing that has always stuck with me is that $19.99 is the magic sales price. Almost all infomercials seem to start with a higher price, but by the time they are done the price is usually $19.99.

So this isn't really an infomercial, but rather a reminder that if you're interested in the BEST newspaper deal I've ever seen, NOW is the time to jump on this deal. If you sign up for the paper it will be the Friday, Saturday, Sunday editions (you also have the option to get the e-edition if you want to sign up for it).

You may also get up to 8 papers per household - this will really add to your food storage if you want to build it up quick!

1 paper = $19.99

2 papers = $39.98

3 papers = $59.97

4 papers = $79.96

5 papers = $99.95

6 papers = $119.94

7 papers = $139.93

8 papers = $159.92

A prime example of getting a great deal is that right now (I believe the sale ends today), Macey's has their Libby's canned vegetables on sale for $.33. In the Parade Magazine that we got on Sunday there was a coupon for $1.00 off the purchase of 3 Libby's vegetables. If you had one paper that would be 3 free cans, if you had 8 papers that would be 24 FREE cans!!!!

There are some great advantages to having multiple copies. Remember I teach free classes. I can teach you how to save between 40% and 60% on each shopping trip! If you're interested in hosting a class or getting the paper (or adding to your current subscriptions), let me know. callmestacy@yahoo.com or 801-589-3946.

Salt Lake newspaper subscriptions drop in price ~ $19.99/yr

I just got some GREAT news! I can now sell the Salt Lake newspapers for $19.99 a year!!! The price dropped 50%.

I thought $39.00 was a good price (that's what I paid over 2.5 years ago when I first started).

Also, you can now order up to 8 papers per household (4 Tribs and 4 D News). Can you even imagine the savings in your pocket? This boils down to $.38 per paper ~ I have honestly never seen this good of a deal on newspapers.

Couponing always saves me between 40% and 60% in every grocery trip. If you're looking to add to your savings by ordering more papers or if you're just getting started let me know and I'll get them ordered for you. You can contact me (Stacy) at 801-589-3946 or callmestacy@yahoo.com.

I also teach free couponing classes. If you're interested in hosting a group, let me know and we can set up a date and time.

Mrs. Fields Cookie Tours

I originally saw this posted on Freebies2Deals the other day and decided to book a tour. We went today (in the pouring rain). My kids are in year round school and we are in our first break of the year and looking for some fun and inexpensive things to do. The tour was a quick 30 minute tour. It was the perfect time for my kids (ages 8, 5 and 3 next week). We had to wear a hairnet and closed toe shoes (no flip flops or open toed sandals). (If you have really young kids who would not do well with a hairnet, this may not be good for them).

We watched a quick 3 minute movie before and then walked through the plant. I guess their busiest time is during the 4th quarter of the year. Victor, our tour guide kept suggesting that we come again during that time of the year when the factory is really busy.

After the tour was over we were greeted in their cookie shop with a tray full of cookies and brownies to sample. Can I just tell you that the smell wafting through that factory was wonderful! If you'd like to schedule your own tour check out this link.

Grocery Tip ~ As we all know, Labor Day is approaching. It's sorta the end of the summer picnics, campouts and BBQ's. Sooooo, what better time than NOW to do a little inventory on your summer supplies. What I mean by this is that during the summer months you will find your condiments, grilling supplies and paper products at their lowest prices. You still have about a month to cash in on some the the great sales. Check your pantry/food storage for ketchup, mustard, pickles, relish, paper plates, napkins, plasticware, charcoal etc... Watch the sales over the next few weeks and stock up on these kinds of products. These items won't stop going on sale, but summer is the best time to get these items at their lowest prices.
