Thanks, Krazy Coupon Lady!
I find I always have to use my printout. Last week I purchased two Arm and Hammer trial size toothpastes at $1.07 each and when I handed the cashier the $3.00 off two coupon she refused it. I got out my coupon policy and told her she could adjust the coupon. She said she was confused because the managers had always told her to refuse coupons that had a higher value than the item. So she called her manager to confirm what I had told her. The manager seemed very upset and said it was common sense to know that the manufacturer did not intend for this coupon to be used on trial size items. I told her, as politely as I possibly could, that it was common sense to read her store's coupon policy and to make herself familiar with it. When she noticed I had gotten upset over her remark she immmediately apologized and said she would only give me the discount today but next time she wouldn't. I really don't like going to Target but unfortunately, they have some really good deals. If only they would update their employess on their policies!
Anyways, I hope this will help us on our trips to Target.

All you have to do to claim your gift card is e-mail your name, proof of birth date (copy of driver's license or birth certificate), home address and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. The contest runs through Sept. 30 at 11:59 p.m. or until all the prizes are gone.
"We won't see this date for another hundred years," Jenny Fouracre, a Domino's spokeswoman, said. "So in honor of this unusual day on the calendar, we thought it would be fun to provide the birthday cake, our newest dessert menu item, to those turning 9 or 99."
If you've never heard of Swagbucks , it is an excellent search engine that gives you points for the searches you do on the internet. I average about 3 swagbucks daily and there are sveral good prizes to choose from. I have purchased several things for free from Amazon using the gift cards I have earned.

There are several good ones including a new one for $0.55 off of Wonder Bread. Hopefully, this will be on sale (and soon, this expires 9/15/09) at Vons or Ralph's since they both double coupons!
You may still use coupons and can purchase register reward items so with all the free after rebate deals you have lots of profit potential.
Restricted items - liquor, dairy, gift cards, cigarettes, stamps, newspapers, prescriptions and phone cards. Limit one card per person per purchase - no mention of one per day. Thanks, Abundant Food Savings!
Also, if any of you received a $3.00 off of a $15 purchase catalina when you filled a prescription there, do remember that they expire today as well. Combine both of these and you have the makings for some great savings!

Another thing that made my life easier was making the same thing for lunch during the weekdays. I have four children and I try to spend some quality time with each of them but it can be a bit difficult with all the other things that are on my to do list, so I assigned each of them a day. (Mondays go to my son, Tuesdays go to daughter #1, Wednesdays are for daughter #2, and Thursdays are for daughter #3, Fridays are mom & dad's day, and the weekends are family days.) I asked each of my children what their favorite meals were and that is what I make for lunch on their day. They also help me prepare the meal.
This is what this weeks menu looks like:
Mon.- Quesadillas, rice, beans
Tues.- Macaroni (homemade), salad
Wed.- Fish, noodles, veggies
Thurs.- Peanut butter sandwiches, fruit
Mon.- Rotisserie chicken, corn, mashed potatoes
Tues.- Quiche, fruit
Wed.- Spaghetti, salad
Thurs.- Chili, dinner rolls
Fri.- Pizza night
Sat.- Enchiladas, rice, beans
Sun.- Chile verde, rice, beans

As you can tell by the name of this blog, I am a couponer. I started hardcore couponing about a year ago and I am hooked! I had previously used coupons and shopped sales on occasion but had never taken it to the next level, which I do now. I used to spend an average of $120 a week on groceries. But since I started couponing I now spend and average of $75! Not only did I lower my weekly budget by nearly half but I realized that I was buying twice the amount of groceries for less!
The purpose of this blog is to let you all in on the great deals I snag or other deals I find on the internet. The stores I will be focusing on are Vons, Ralph's, Albertsons, Walgreens, and Henry's. Since I'm also a homeschooler I will be posting about good deals I find at Border's and Barnes and Noble bookstores as well, plus other frugal homeschooling ideas.
Please join me as I continue my frugal journey and learn to make the most of the resources which God has so graciously given to me.
