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!

Swagbucks partners with coupons - what a great marriage!

If you aren't familiar with Swagbucks and you like to earn free stuff - stay tuned!

I've posted about this before, but now they've added an even new feature that I'm sooo excited about.

Swagbucks is like a search engine, but the more you search the more points you earn. You can then go to the Swagbucks website and cash these points in for all kinds of things (my favorites are the gift cards, but there's a lot of variety).

So they just added a place where you can print coupons. The key is to print them (you can print 2 per computer) and use them. Once they have been redeemed at your local store you get 10 points for each redeemed coupon. It does say in the fine print that it will take 8-12 weeks to show up in your banks. This doesn't bother me since I'm a regular coupon user.

Honestly - I don't see a reason under the sun why you wouldn't join now, earn points for surfing and if you're a regular couponer like me - earn some additional points for things you already do!

So what are you waiting for???? It's free stuff.....don't we all like free stuff????

Go here, sign up, surf, read their blog, and when you sign up for the first time you get 30 points to start! I can't wait to start cashing in on coupons.

Sweeeet! I saved 59% today!

I've really neglected the blog lately. I never thought a house, a husband and three kids could really stretch me that far, but it has - so please forgive me :0)

I was really excited today when I walked out of Smith's having paid less than what I saved. Today is the last day of the sale and I was really hoping that they would still have cereal left. I was pleasantly surprised and just about cleared the remaining boxes from their end cap.

Yep - that's 32 boxes of Rice and Corn Chex and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. My husband's favorite cereal is Rice Chex and when you can get it for $0.99 a box - it's worth stocking up on. This seems to be the only time of year when it goes on sale too. I hope in the coming weeks there will be more Chex cereal sales and more coupons in the newspaper. I'll buy even more to keep my husband supplied throughout the year - he's a big cereal eater and could finish 1 box in 2 to 3 days.

I also bought 2 pkts of brown gravy, 1 Symphony bar (as a thank you for a friend), 1 gallon of oj and 3 Christmas calendars. Now I need to tuck those away so they don't get opened and eaten before Dec. 1.

I spent a total of $49.70 and saved $68.11, a savings of 59%. Pretty Sweeet if you ask me!

I've also heard that the sale starting tomorrow at Smiths is a pretty good one. Check here for all the 4 and 5 star deals.
