Small but Mighty Trip I had been meaning to venture out to stock up on cereal now that it's January. I planned great last year - we were down to about three boxes of cereal by the time I ventured out yesterday. We usually go through two boxes a week in our house. My kids love cereal and I eat that as my snack more often than not. I hit up ShopRite for a small but mighty trip to use some of my coupons before they expired. I did two transactions and here's what I picked up: My Small but Mighty … [Read more...]

How to Keep a Price Book A Price book is a way of tracking the prices of items you have purchased. This is a great way to see what your buy or stockpile price may be for a particular item.

Couponer's Cart vs. Non-Couponers The GROCERY STORE was PACKED this afternoon when my husband, Eric (My coupon Body Guard) and I went to get items for our holiday "appetizer feast" and stock up on some great deals!  I had previously planned our trip and clipped all coupons for what we were going to buy. AND, we did know that there would be things that we DIDN'T have coupons for that we would splurge on for this special time! BUT I was confidant that we were saving money on the OTHER things, … [Read more...]
