There are some great new coupons on, if you have a sweet tooth. The small packs are on sale through today at Rite Aid and go on sale tomorrow at Walgreens Go HERE to print

3 different $1 off 2 Butterfingers Snackers (no size limits)
1 $1.50 off 1 Butterfinger 9 oz Fun Size Bag

The pic is showing print limit reached, but that is because I printed 2 of each coupon. Also, the logo does not print on any of them except the $1.50 q. However, it is a manufacturer's coupon and should be accepted anywhere. It states "Available at Rite Aid". If you can not find them, try the zip

My trip to Bi-Lo this week was a really good one.  I was really excited about the Yakisoba noodles on BOGO because I had 50¢ coupons that would create overage, if allowed. As it happened, the register did double them, which helped to lower my total bill. This is what I bought.

9 Yakisoba Noodles (0+4.50 overage)
3 Kikkoman Sauces (2.27)
2 Bestlife Buttery Spreads (0+1¢ overage)
1 Gallon Milk (3.19)
1/2 Gallon Chocolate Milk (0)
1 Nabisco Saltines ($1)
5 Mueller's Pasta (0)
2 Chi-Chi's Salsa Con Queso ($3)
1 Wise Chips (90¢)
1 Wise Cheez Doodles ($1)
2 Hormel Natural Choice Meats ($3)
1 Loaf Bread (1.35)
1 SH Spaghetti (0)
1 Dawn Dish Liquid (0)

I received 15¢ bag credit.
The total before sales and coupons was 60.70.
The total I paid was 12.53.
I saved 48.17 or 80%.

An awesome new coupon just hit the "cyber airways" like I have never seen before. Go HERE to print a coupon for 50¢ of Hamburger Helper! This could make it free with a sale if your store doubles coupons.

My trip to CVS was really great this week. I was able to get a couple of unexpected deals to go along with the Coke ECB deal, using a couple of coupons that I got from the coupon kiosk.  Here is what I did. I bought:

This makes my total for this trip just $6.30, which includes 5 12pks of Coke products.
Good Deal!


Go HERE to enter your email address and print a coupon for 50¢ off any size, any flavor Tobasco sauce. This should make the smallest size free or almost free if your grocery store doubles coupons. As usual, you can print 2 coupons.

I had a great day at Publix. I used 3 rainchecks from last week, and had to pick up 3 more, due to them being out of stock on several items. This is what I bought.

2 3.15lb bags cat food (3.00 w/raincheck)
4 Dozen Eggland's Best Eggs (3.82 w/raincheck)
2 Jolly Time Popcorn (0 w/raincheck)
2 100ct boxes of Splenda (1.85)
2 Yoplait Yo Plus Yogurt (0)
6 Hunts Tomatoes Cans (2.05)
2 Quaker Instant Oatmeal (1.69)
2 Hostess Sweet Sixteen Mini-Donuts (2.99)
1 Mrs. Paul's Fried Clams (2.25)
1 Birdseye Steamfresh Veggies (39¢)
2 Country Crock Spread (39¢)
3 Idahoan Potatoes (1.13)
2 Pts Whole Fruit Sorbet (89¢)

My total before sales and coupons was 68.79.
The total that I spent was 20.35.
I saved 48.44 or 70%.

Besides saving so much money, one of the things I love about shopping this way is that you can try so many different things, at so little cost. In this case, it is the fried clams, which I would not have bought without the $2 Birdseye coupon, and the Whole Fruit Sorbet. Hopefully, we're in for a treat.

UPDATE: While I was reviewing my receipt, I realized that the store savings for my rainchecks were not calculated into my savings. I actually saved 56.64 or 74%.

UPDATE: This appears to only be working for regular Coke products. Many people have entered Sprite and Diet codes and only got the standard number of points. There is also speculation that this only works for members who received an email about this promo. But it's worth a try.

 If you are a member of My Coke Rewards, today is the day to enter those codes you've been putting off. For today only, you will receive double points for each code that you enter. Go HERE to sign up or sign in and start entering your points today.

I had another really great trip to Publix this week. I was especially glad to see that the Smuckers jams, jellies, and preserves were BOGO. I have been holding onto coupons that I printed in September for $1.50 off and they were going to expire at the end of the month. These coupons allowed me to buy them at 2/13¢! What a deal! This is what I bought.

6 Smuckers (6/1.39. I also had two $1 off coupons)
4 Jimmy Dean D-Lights Breakfast Sandwiches)
1 Tyson's Chicken Tenders (3.50)
2 Schick Disposable Razor 12pks (2/2.58)
4 Betty Crocker Potatoes (4/2.00)
1 Adolph's Steak Marinade (Regular price @ 1.49)

The total before sales and coupons was 76.96.

I saved 44.24 or 77%. 25.00 of this was coupons.

Well, I dug out of the snow in time to get to Rite Aid before my +Up rewards expired! Yay! I would certainly hate to lose $18 in rewards. Anyway, I had a really great trip. I am never disappointed with my Rite Aid adventures. While they are sometimes out of the really good deals, it is never something that I really need. I did 2 transactions, planning to use the $10 reward for the Aveeno deal to help pay for the 2nd transaction. Well, when I did my first transaction, The $10 reward did not print. Since my cashier thought that she was going to have to get help from someone to try and correct it, I went on with my 2nd transaction, and paid cash. This is what I bought.

4 Stayfree @ 2.50
used 2 BOGO Q's & (1) $1 off Q. Cashier credited $3 each for BOGO's
4 Special K @4.79 BOGO
used 2 BOGO Q's  Cashier credited 4.49 each.
2 Axeeno Baby Wash @ 5.69
used (2) $1 q's & (2) $1 in-ad q's. Received 10% discount (5.12 ea)
1 each Aveeno Shampoo & Conditioner @ 5.99
used (2) 1.50 q's
1 Aveeno Face Scrub @ 7.99
used $2 Q & $1 in-ad Q  Received 10% discount (7.19)
2 Zicam Cold Sore Swabs @ 3.25 (on clearance from 12.99)
used (2) $2 Q's
1 Blink Eye Drops @ 7.99
1 Breathe Right Strips @ 3.99
Used $2 Video Values Q  
1 Gain Dish Detergent @ 89¢
Used $1 Q     

I also used my $4 off $20 purchase Video Values Q.

The total before any sales and coupons was 113.42.
I started with $18 +Up rewards and also used (1) $1 +Up reward  that I got today.
I paid 12.74 plus tax out of pocket, for a total of 16.60.
I have $22 in +Up rewards
I will receive 7.99 SCR for the Blink.
So after the rebate my total will be 1.75 plus tax. That's a savings of 98%.

As it turned out, the reason that I did not get the $10 +Up reward on the Aveeno was that I got a 10% discount on a couple of items, which brought the amount below the $25 required purchase.  I had to have it refunded and then I re-purchased it, along with one more item. But it all worked out.

One of the key factors to being a successful couponer is to build a sufficient stockpile. This is done over time, and can take a few months. But once you have your stockpile built, you will seldom have to buy anything because you need it. You will already have what you need, except, of course, your perishables like milk, bread, fruit, and produce. However, the money that you save on other things will leave more money in your budget for those things. 

I recommend one or two normal shopping trips, buying what you need, and at the same time, buying the sale items that you will need in the future, using as many coupons as possible. Most items go on sale every 6-8 weeks, but if you follow the sales at more than one store, you may see that each store has it on sale, but at different times. For instance, if you know that you cook spaghetti once a week, and the store has it on a BOGO sale, buy enough to last about 6 weeks. There are almost always printable coupons for pasta, which often makes it free. If it goes on sale again before you  run out, and you have/can get more coupons, then replenish your stockpile. Do not wait until you run out, as it may not be on sale then. 

Any non-perishable item can be stockpiled, though some may need to be rotated to keep the dates current. A good price is not a good price if you end up throwing it out because it went out of date. But most items have a pretty lengthy shelf-life. I find that salad dressing is probably the main thing that I have to keep a close watch on. Canned veggies seem to last forever, as do jellies and that kind of thing. I stockpile all sauces, condiments, pasta sauces, canned soups, side dishes, canned meats and veggies, and box dinner mixes. In my freezer, I have frozen dinners, veggies, meatballs, frozen breads, ice cream, breakfast items, and the list goes on. 

I NEVER pay full price for any meat. Ground beef is on sale somewhere almost every week, as are chicken breasts. I prefer buying boneless meat, so when there is a good price, I buy enough for about a month, divide it into meal-sized packages and freeze it. Boneless chicken breasts and steaks are wrapped serarately, and then put into larger bags. This way, I only have to defrost what I need for whatever I am cooking. I buy roasts that are on sale and cut them my self for stew meat. I buy a whole pork loin when they are on sale and have the butcher at the store slice it into chops. I usually get about 18 boneless chops from one pork loin, and can usually buy them for less than $2 a pound. I have never seen them pre-sliced for this price, and the store does not charge you to slice it. 

I take advantage of all "sale with coupons" on staples such as sugar, flour, cornbread mix, and canned milk. Once you learn how often each of your necessities goes on sale, you will be better able to determine how much you need to buy. For instance, I use a lot of canned, evaporated milk. It sells for 98¢-1.25, depending on the brand that you buy. Publix recently had it BOGO at 1.23 each, making them 62¢, which is a good price. However, I also had coupons, which brought the price down to 12¢ each, over 90% off of the original price. I bought as many as I had coupons, because I know that it does not go on sale that cheap very often.

It is always good to have a designated area in your home for your stockpile, and to keep it organized. When I first started couponing, I was "forced" to clean out and rearrange my kitchen cabinets, just to have space for the food.  You may even have to make a small investment for shelves or boxes, but it will be well worth it. Your stockpile will grow a little with each shopping trip. You should never do without something that you need just because it's not on sale or you don't have a coupon. However, once your stockpile starts growing, you will soon have almost anything you need at any given time. When you start getting low on something, you will start looking for a good price.

This post was designed to help people who are new to CVS get started. This is a really great week to get started. But first, a little necessary information.

In order to get any special prices at CVS, you must have an ExtraCare card. You can get one in the store or HERE.
Once you get your card, register it online HERE

CVS offers special deals each week, which earn you ExtraBucks, more commonly known as ECBs or EBs,
ECBs are valid to use as money in the store, and are good for most store items.
ECBs expire after about a month.
ECBs can be used along with store or manufacturer's coupons.
ECBs can be earned in one transaction and then used in the next transaction, or saved for another time.
When you enter the store, you should scan your card at the scanner/coupon kiosk.
Coupons received from the kiosk are store coupons, and can be used along with a manufacturer's coupon on the same item.
ECBs are earned on the "before coupon" amount.

CVS also gives you 2% of your total, pre-tax, out-of-pocket spending each quarter. For avid couponers, this is not usually very much.

This week (1/9-1/16) CVS is offering a few great deals. If you are new to CVSing, it is a great time to get started. You can buy:
1 Snickers @ 89¢
1 King Size Recee's or Hershey's @ 1.59.
Your total due will be 2.48 (plus tax)
You will receive 2.48 in ECBs.

At this point, you can take your ECBs and go home, and wait for next weeks deals. Or you can pick up a few more of this week's deals.

Right now Tanga is offering a one-year subscription to Family Circle Magazine for just 2.99. Go HERE to order now, as Tanga's prices increase as the number of sales go up. You do not have to register in order to buy. The price is listed as 14.99, but enter the code "circle" when you are checking out and it will adjust to the current price. If the price has already gone up, and is more than you want to pay, you can cancel the order at that point. I did mine about an hour ago and it was 2.99.

Friday, January 7, 2011

This made my total out of pocket - 53¢ plus tax.


There are many different places to get coupons and several different ways to organize them. First, we will discuss where to get them.
The biggest source for a variety of coupons is your Sunday newspaper. Almost every week, there is a least one coupon insert in the paper, with most weeks having two or more. It is my recommendation that you keep all coupons. Even if they are for items that you have never bought before, and you think that you probably never will. You never know when the right deal may come along. You should always buy the largest paper that is distributed in your area. The best one that I have found is the Charlotte Observer. It is sold, of course, in and around Charlotte, NC, and in several Publixes and newstands around the Upstate of SC. Most couponers buy at least 2 newspapers every week. Walgreens and Ingles sometimes sell newspapers at a discounted price.

If I can not find a way to make the installments on "The Basics of Couponing" page appear on my home page also, I will try and remember to copy and paste it here. This is the first installment.


Couponing has become almost an art and a way of life for many. It enables us to experience many things that we could not have done previously. For instance, since I started couponing, I have donated hundreds of dollars worth of name-brand products to churches and individuals in need. My family has tried a variety of new foods, and I always have food on hand. I have a stockpile of food and toiletries that will last me several months, if need be.

On this page, I will attempt to teach you the easiest and most profitable way to get started and be successful. I will try and cover a different aspect of couponing each day.

The average couponer saves about 65%-70% on their groceries weekly and much more on their toiletries and household items. Do not be discouraged if you are not saving that much right away. It does take a little time. Here are some important things to remember.


If you are a regular on SavinSource, you will notice that there have been a couple of small changes today. The category labels that were at the top are now on the sidebar and there is a new button at the top called "The Basics of Couponing". This is a new series that I have started to help new couponers learn the basics. As time goes on, there will be regular installments and different pages set up for different stores. If there is a topic that you would like to see covered, please contact me through the button on my sidebar. Also, feel free to contact me with questions.

Go HERE to print a coupon for a BOGO Free CVS coupon for 20 oz Diet Coke or Caffeine-free Diet Coke. It is a store coupon, so it can not be used anywhere else. I also saw something interesting on their cooler window today where the Cokes are kept. There was a sign saying that if you buy 9 Cokes, your 10th one is free. I assume that they are tracked by your ExtraCare Card. Sounds like a good deal for those who like to purchase the cold single-serving bottles.


Bi-Lo has a new ad starting today with some great deals. One of my favorites is Lance Crankers 8pks. They are on sale for $2.oo each and there is a 55¢ off coupon HERE. I found it using the zip 90210. This coupon will double, which will make your final price just 90¢ for 8 packs of crackers. I could not even imagine paying 59¢-79¢ per pack ever again.

Another favorite snack in my house is Wise Cheez Doodles. Bi-Lo has them for $2 and there is a 50¢ off coupon HERE, which will also double, making them just $1 per bag.

Other great deals are:
House Aughtry Oven Breaders BOGO @ 2.37/1.18ea.
Print a 50¢ off coupon HERE, making them 18¢ each.

Pompeian Olive Oil 16 oz BOGO @ 7.05/3.52ea.
Print a $1 coupon HERE, making it just 2.52.

Mueller's Elbow Macaroni BOGO @ 97¢/49¢ea.
Print a 55¢ coupon HERE, making them free plus overage if your store allows.

Hot/Lean Pockets are on sale for 1.88.
Print a 50¢ Lean Pockets coupon HERE, making them just 88¢.

This is just a few of Bi-Lo's deals this week. Click HERE to see the list of their best deals with other coupon match-ups.


Beginning today, Publix has their Yoplait Frozen Smoothie mixes on their BOGO sale for 1.59 each. If you act fast you can go HERE to print a coupon for 1.25 off, which will make them just 34¢ each. Each package makes 2 smoothies. That's a great deal on a delicious, healthy treat. There is also a $1 coupon on their Facebook page.

I have been keeping track of everything that I spent at the grocery stores this year. At least, I did until mid-November. Well, I just finished catching up my receipts on my spreadsheet and I am very pleased with my savings. I'm sure I have missed a couple of small receipts, or quick trips for milk, produce, or bread. But I did try to update each week that I did this. I also did buy some grocery items at the drugs stores, but at the same time, my grocery store spending includes quite a bit of household items and toiletries, so I'm sure it all evens out. Here are my totals:

Total Value (per stores' non-sale prices) was $6664.00.
The total I spent was $2328.00.
I saved a total of $4366.00 or 66%.
$2033.00 of this was with coupons.


My Publix trip was shorter than most. There were only a few things that I needed, and they were not the items that offered huge savings. However, I was still able to save around 70%, which is still great in my book. This is what I bought.

6 CBA canned pasta (6/3.94)

2 Great new coupons popped up on today. They are both "Buy One, Get One Free Stayfree Pads". Although they say "available at Dollar General" & "available at Family Dollar", the fine print states that they can be used anywhere coupons are accepted. The drugstores often have Stayfree BOGO, which means that you could get 2 free with each coupon. So go HERE to print yours now before they are all gone. And remember that you can print each coupon 2 times.

This is a list of things that I got for free from using coupons. It does not include the things that I got from playing the various drugstore games. This list is a bit different from my lists in the past, as it includes very few food items.

2 Herbal Essence Hair Sprays
2 Pantene Shampoos
1 42ct Cottonelle Fresh Wipes
1 20ct Advil Liqui-Gels
2 12ct Tucks Pads
5 Olay Body Wash
2 Glory Cornbread Mix
1 Sample Kashi Go-Lean Cereal
1 Bag Recee's Miniatures
1 Old Spice Body Wash

This is almost $50 worth of stuff that I got absolutely free with coupons.


There is another great deal right now at Wal Mart on Tuck's Pads. The 12ct box is priced at 2.74. Go HERE to print a coupon for $3 off one, which will make it free. I had no problem using this coupon.

Most of my grocery dollars were spent at Ingles this week, which is very unusual. I accidentally picked up a can of store brand pinto beans instead of Luck's or I would have saved just a little more. This is what I bought.

2 Nabisco Saltines 2/2.00
5 Chunky Soups @ 5/2.20
2 Margaret Holmes Greens @ 2/1.42
1 Luck's Beans @ 50¢
1 LL Beans @ 79¢
2 Simply Potatoes @ 2/2.12
1 Reduced Salad Mix @ 1.49
1 pk (1.64 lb) Smoked Hog Jowls @ 2.10
1 pk ground chuck (4.07 lbs) @ 7.65
1 Grocery item @ 1.31 (don't remember)

My total before sales and coupons was 45.72.
The total I paid was 21.42.
I saved 24.30 or 53%.


My Bi-Lo trip was very short this week. I did not buy much, but needed dog food. Unfortunately, there are seldom good sales on dog food, so my savings percentage is not as high as usual. However, I appreciate any savings, so here it is.

1 17lb bag Purina Dog Food @ 7.99
1 Gallon Milk @ 3.19
3 Armour Meatballs @ 3/2.67

My total before sales and coupons was 27.59.
I paid 13.80.
I saved 13.79 or 50%.


I didn't buy much at Publix this week. I am so stocked up on most things, that I seldom need very much. My husband had requested some dry pintos, and I was surprised to find that the Publix brand was just 79¢, so I bought 2 bags. Here is the complete list of what I bought.

2 1 lb bags Pintos @ 2/1.58
5 Chi-Chi's Salsa Jars @ 5/5.00
1 TGI Friday's Frozen Snack @ 79¢
2 Chex Mix @ 2/38¢
2 Glory Cornbread Mix @ 2/0 + 30¢ overage
3 Recee's Christmas Candy @ 3/3.90

The total before any sales or coupons was 31.78.
Total I paid was 11.37.
I saved 20.41 or 64%.


I just came from Dollar General. I had a $5 off $25 coupon and wanted to use it. The most awesome deal I found was the small bottles of Olay Body wash. These were at the special price of $2. With the coupon from the 12/26 PG for $2 off, they were free. Yay! The cashier did scan my $5 coupon first, which I was doubtful about. When I spoke to the manager about it before checking out, she was not sure if their system would allow it or not, but it did. The only problem I had was with my Axe BOGO coupon. It would only allow a $2.14 discount. I think I have that figured out now. When their system credits the $5 off $25 coupon, it discounts each item a little bit. The system had already credited 86¢ off of the Axe. It may have worked if I had presented the Axe coupons before the Olay coupons. I think I'll try that next time.
