Five Free Turkeys – and free groceries too!

Well…I hadn't planned on cashing in on the free turkey for shopping deals too much this year.  But we lived off our our stockpile of nearly free groceries for most of the summer.  There was no time to shop, prices were high, coupons low.  Then my sister arrived with the flu, and the amount of disinfecting wipes, kleenex, cleaners, laundry detergent, broth and soup, well…one day we had a stockpile of accumulated savings on groceries, and then it was almost … Continue reading

How To Feed A Family Of Six For $4 A Week

One of the most popular posts on this blog is a detailed account of how $330 worth of groceries was purchased for $27.

Once you have the fundamentals down to maximize your savings with grocery coupons, it is amazing how much you can save. Take, for example, this … Continue reading

We Won’t be Undersold – Low Price Turkey Guarantee

The first time I read a grocery store ad declaring “We Won’t Be Undersold on Turkeys – we will match any competitor’s price!” I thought WOW! I was new to deal hunting and finding major savings at grocery stores. But, I was serving 20 for Thanksgiving dinner, and I knew our family was expecting a fantastic turkey. Namely, Butterball, which was on sale at half the price at the store on the other side of town. I took the competitors … Continue reading

PGBrandSaver coupons will be in Thanksgiving weekend paper!

Most manufacturers don't publish coupons on holiday weekends. After all, people may be away from home, or doing things besides clipping coupons and looking for recipes or ideas for Christmas or New Years. Coupons are expensive to print, publish, and distribute. So, most companies will wait for the following weekend. Proctor and Gamble WILL be putting the PGBrandsaver coupon insert in Thanksgiving weekend papers! PG coupons expire the end of the month, and waiting for the following weekend would mean … Continue reading

Days of Whine and Noses

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away, and it is time to plan, prepare and purchase those critical must-have items – the emergency supplies! My stockpiled pantry is usually flexible enough to accommodate surprise needs. You know the ones I mean : my sister comes to visit and she is on a sugar free, soy free, no fruit diet that started out Mediterranean, but now has changed to South Beach. Or, my Mom can only have non-fat milk, but she … Continue reading

Free Groceries or Just Another Scam?

My half brother has been out of touch with me for several years. Broken families go through confusing relationships, and ours has been no different. But lately he's been reaching out by email. He doesn't “get” the whole couponing thing, although he buys in bulk and believes in stockpiling groceries to save money, just not exactly how the serious savings come about. He's making an effort, though, and has been sending me links to sites and articles he finds on … Continue reading
