Coupon info

So normally I buy 2 newspapers( NP) a week! That way double the coupons! I just cut what I need and let the girls at work get what they need and keep the leftovers. On any given sunday there can be 1-4 inserts in the NP. The very first of the month Proctor & Gamble ( P& G) put in their insert! Worth every penny to have those!!!  Anyways I just watch the deals each week. I normally shop at Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid & Target. But where we live its not easy to go to each every week so I try to watch really good sales! 

On to Blogs & Websites.  I read many blogs and get a lot of emails a day! I also sign up to Nuk, Johnson & Johnson to get coupons for there products! I also keep pampers & huggies coupons. I have baby showers constantly! I keep stock!

Anyways here are some of the blogs that wil send out emails and tell you whats good buys and where to shop! I will let you know know some are very repetitive and some are stores we don't even have in our state! is a good website to get coupons! They change each month and add new ones almost daily and send you emails when the new ones do arrive!

mama cheaps,    crazy coupon lady,   the krazy coupon lady, tiffany-my litter,   raining hot coupons,   the wizard,   saving with amy,   freebies2deals,   southern savers,   the frugal girls,   cuckooforcoupondeals,  freebies 4 mom, cellfire, coupon connection, coupon mom smart source & redplum ( theses last two RP & SS) are the ones most in the newspapers.
faithful provisions  & I heart Publix

I usually get around 20 emails+ a day but they are worth it sometimes! has some really good coupons too!!

Most of the blogs will make a run down of who has the better deals and where to buy it!! It helps!

Also just check where stores double coupons. I know on Saturday Freds doubles up to .70 an item. But walmart will take two different coupons for the same thing. Say I have a printed coupon & a NP coupon, You can usually use both! Sometimes you just have to be tricky! ( this does not work at freds, only one coupon per item) Also Walgreens policy if you have 4 coupons you have to have 4 items. The amount of coupons you have to match the amount of products!

Oh and there are paper coupons to print off everywhere so don't hesitate to use those! It helps in the long run!

Extreme Cuponing- My new Obsession

My newest addiction has been couponing! If you have watched the show on TLC, I AM NOT THAT EXTREME! I feel it is unneccesary to own 52 bottles of mustard or 63 bottles of purex laundry detergent!  I do however have several body wash, deo,shampoo, toothpaste and razors for J & myself. I feel you can probably have too many of those but they dont expire for a while and if they are lil to nothing to buy go for it!!! I have also started a smallstack of diapers and wipes! All my friends are popping out kids so why not have gifts in stock! Food couponing is a lil harder, but I am slowly getting into a groove. I recently bought numerous boxes of pasta for UNDER $3.00, I think. Kroger receipts give me a bit of a headache. I got 13 boxes for under $5 to almost free I think. I forgot to take a pic.
