Remember, It's Okay!

It's okay not to get EVERY deal or freebie! I used to stress out about not getting everything....then I realized, there will always be a freebie or deal each week. Yes, some weeks are better than others.

Do I have coupons for everything I buy? No, I surely don't, I wish I did! There are some items that we just need!

Just Remember, It's okay!

Do you have any coupons that you do not want?

If you have coupons that you do not want and they are not expired, you can mail them to:

P.O. Box 694
Brandon, MS 39043

I will make sure that they are used and what expires out will go to coups for troops.....

Thank you!

Take a look at what we've scored!

Here you see a picture of Tylenol Precise! This item normally retail's for $7.99 each, BUT it was recently on sale for $5.00 each at Rite-Aid. On top of that sale there were coupons in the Sunday paper for $5.00 off of one Precise item, with no limits. After finding that all of our local Rite-Aid stores were out of the product, it was presented to SEVERAL Wal-Mart stores as a price match. With the price match and the coupons to boot, that made this item completely free! All that was paid was tax!! The original retail price would have been $719.10!!! The out of pocket cost was a total of $73.47, which included the cost of the coupons (bought from a clipping service), and the tax!! That's a heck of a savings!!

Pictured are 24 one pound bags of turkey lunch meat by Oscar Mayer. They were recently on sale at Winn Dixie BOGO for $3.99. That made each of the bags priced at only $1.99 each!! That put the total at $47.76 which is a great price to start with, but there were coupons used on top of that! The coupons were buy 2 packs of Oscar Mayer lunch meat and get $1.00 off. Since it was every two bags there were 12 coupon's used, which then took the total down to $35.76!!!!! WOW! Remember that most item's can be frozen!

So, you want to coupon?

Where to start.....

1.  Start Collecting coupons - from inserts, magazines, internet, write and ask companies, ask friends & family to save them for you, mailbox, blinkies at the store.

2.  Know your stores coupon policies! You don't want to go to the front of the store with a buggy full of products and learn that you can't use internet coupons at that store.

3.  Check out company websites, to view their upcoming sales. 

4.  Sign up for samples or freebies. Most companies send coupons in the mail with the sample, and will e-mail you about special offers! 

5.  Create another email account just for signing up for samples & freebies...so you don't overload your regular email account.

6.  Have fun, Don't Stress and Remember you don't have to get every deal out there!

Need a meal planner?

Cooking can be a challenge for everyone to keep up with. You run out of idea's, forget to take something out to cook, and sometimes just don't feel like cooking. There are lot's of way's to make sure that your family has a home cooked meal every night! Here are just a few of the thing's you can do to ensure that happens:

1) Cook your meals for the week all in one day and either freeze them or keep them in the refrigerator.

2) When you have left overs, don't throw them out! Freeze them! On those nights when you don't want to cook you can take that frozen meal out, heat it and serve it!

3) Make a meal plan, which can be done weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly! You are in total control if what is going to be served, and you know what to expect.

4) Make yourself a checklist. Get yourself a dry erase board and write down what to take out for supper, so there are no forgotten meals. This way when you wake up you can see what need's to be done, without searching for your list.

5)Have a left over night! Give your family the option to have any meal that's still in the refrigerator (and still good), so they can have choices.

There are several different sites you can use to plan out your meal's and get great recipes to make those meals. You can do that or just make up your own!! Be creative with it, but be realistic. If your working full time, you aren't going to have time to make a meal that takes 2 hours......unless you've pre-cooked it!! Please feel free to post good recipes for everyone to enjoy!
