Couponing-Rumors and Changes...


Albertson's-It's rumored that we're getting Doublers (Twice the Value) coupons this Sunday!  Be on the lookout.  Also, starting tomorrow-we get free Ken's salad dressing if you have the 8/12/12 SmartSource insert.  We love stocking up on salad dressing :D

Dollar Tree-Starting 8/26/12, they will start accepting manufacturer coupons.  That's pretty sweet.  I haven't visited a dollar store since I learned to coupon, but it may prove handy yet again :D

Rite Aid-Their policy will be changing with their +Up program early next month.  Instead of the +Ups printing on your receipt, they go on your card.  I've heard it cause problems in test markets because you need to be sure and scan your paper coupons before giving your wellness card.  You can opt out in the store once it starts though (I plan to, I like old fashioned paper in my hands!).  One new problem you can't get around though either way is that you won't be able to use your +Up rewards until the next day.  A big hassle if you want to reduce your out of pocket, but you do what you can I suppose :-/

Round Up & Coupon Classes/Kits!



This week Alberton's is having their "Round Up" promo where all manufacturer coupons are rounded up to $1 (.25-.99 coupons.  Those .24 and lower are quadrupled).  It's a great way to use up coupons that are usually low value!  I know I'm going to drop in and nab a couple things myself.  Also, their sweepstakes is ending on the 21st! 

I have been meaning to come up with a formal couponing kit/class and was given the opportunity here locally at the Sweet Repeat Kid's Resale Boutique.  They've got lots of great stuff and I look forward to having another class there sometime :D

Work with what you've got...improvise!

We've got a nice huge closet in our bathroom area, nice-deep and tall shelves.  But it's a pain for organization.  Lookin for a cheap shelving system, I jimmy-rigged this:

At the $ store, they have a set of 2 cookie racks for a buck.  I took a box that fit the rack, cut off 3/4 of the flaps a can be seen here, and taped down the remaining 2-halves for support of the rack.  Since the rack stuck out farther than this box, it was also helpful that the bottom flap helped keep it tucked in.
 And viola!  Here is where I store our medicines :D  I'm always for creative solutions. 
 Here's another organizational attempt from the $ store-3 little wire trash cans, secured to eachother by twist ties to make them stable.
