Coupons at Dollar Tree As of this Sunday, August 26th, Dollar Tree stores nationwide will begin accepting manufacturer's coupons. I have to be honest, I have never stepped inside of a Dollar Tree. We do have one that just opened in our town, but when I read that they didn't accept coupons, I never made it a priority to go check it out. Guess I will be there Sunday morning with my Couponizer full! The best part about Dollar Tree is that they are a true dollar store, meaning nothing costs more … [Read more...]

When used properly, coupons and discount offers help us provide better for our families, reduce our debt and enable us to plan for a more stable future for ourselves. Competition among businesses is fiercer than ever and they need to get our attention to get us in their doors. This past year I have been noticing more and more coupons and offers than ever before.

Budget Within A Budget

Budget Within A Budget Having a budget in place is smart; managing it is even smarter. Someone once told me I budget within a budget when I taught a couponing class, I didn't quite understand what that meant but apparently I was doing it. He explained that I break my budget down so fine that I know where all of our money goes on a regular basis and I am very good at moving money budgeted for one thing to pay for another if a deal is right without causing any ripples in my bi-monthly budget. He … [Read more...]

Busted Shopping Trip You plan your shopping trip, look at the match up and the sales ad, you make your list, clip your coupons and off you go only to discover your plan won't work. Maybe the store is out of stock, you forgot some coupons or they expired and you didn't notice or what you thought was on sale really isn't. There are a number of things that can go wrong. We have all been there on more than one occasion. This happened to me at Publix very recently. I saw an item on sale in a … [Read more...]

It's OK Not Saving 90% I've certainly done better, but I'm still pretty happy with today's trip. Saving a good amount of money on several high dollar items in the same trip can be a challenge. Some of these were either on sale or I had store coupons getting ready to expire in the next couple of days and I wanted to be sure I used them being that they are products I use regularly. It's OK not to save 90% every time you go shopping, in fact it's unrealistic. Wags:      3 12 packs of coke … [Read more...]

Shopkick "Kicks" Today I had to run to the mall to return some pants. When I walked in the mall I pulled up my Shopkick app and I got 25 kicks just for walking in! Then I had to go to Target and while I was there I pulled up my app and clicked on Target and then on Scans and there were two items (Fast Five DVD and a printer cartridge). I decided to look for the Fast Five DVD and when I found it I scanned the bar code with my phone and I got another 40 kicks! Not bad, earning rewards while … [Read more...]
