G.R.I.T.S Coupons! Starting tomorrow at Rite Aid Noxema Razors will be $2.99. Look for the $2 off razor in the inserts tomorrow!!!! That will make a 4-pk of razors .99

Target deals

I went to my local Target and checked out the clearance racks. Mostly everything that I got was out of the "bonus" area, where Target was trying something new and started selling things in BULK. So a few things that I got were small "bulk". This is what I purchased and the coupons that I used. Not everything was at its lowest price, but I couldn't pass up the deal. Clearance varies from store to store, so you may have different deals and even some better prices. I also scoped out the bathing suits and saw some for as low as $3.

Anyway, what I have listed is the item, and under that in RED I listed the coupon that I used. I was able to save $22 on this shopping trip, just in coupons.

(2)2 pack Nivea Men's body wash:$4.66
(2) -$3.00 Nivea Men Body wash = $1.66 ea.

(1)3 Pack Gillette Fushion Shave Gel:$3.48

(1) -$1.oo Gillette Fushion Shave get =$2.48

(2)Venus Embrace razors: $3.48
(2)-$2.00 Venus Bikini or Embrace =$1.48 ea.

(2)Gilliette Fushion razors (1 not pictured): $3.48
(2)-$2.00 Gillette Fushion razor=$1.48
I also had a Target coupon for a $5 coupon wyb 2 Fushion razors :o) so i used that also.

(2) Pantene Hairspray: $1.88
(2)$1.00 Pantene Hairstyler =.88 ea.

Food Lion doubling?

Some of you may have read this on numerous sites. I have not confirmed any of this, but from reading several pages it looks as if Food Lion may begin doubling coupons at certain locations?! Starting 5/19/10 Food Lion will be doubling up $.60, price match with competitor's ads, and will accept ANY grocery store coupon. Again, I have not confirmed this, but I must say that this is a GREAT idea. I hate FL, simply because they do not double.


My WONDERFUL husband bought me a new computer! I am now able to update you again through the blog, and not only via Facebook. I will try to put what I find on here, just as equally as I do on Facebook.

Get your coupons together for Super Doubles starting this week at Harris Teeter. I may try to post the freebies!

In the meantime, I received an email this morning with new coupons.... get your printer ready to print these NEW* coupons....

$1/2 Oscar Mayer Hotdogs (already selected)

Missed what was on Facebook this week?

The blog has not been allowing me to get on for some reason so I have been using Facebook as a source to communicate with fans! I am sorry if you do not have a Facebook page. Here is what I posted.....

Reminders, coupons, FREEBIES, and thoughts....

  • Since it is the end of April, you should print the coupons that you need! These coupons will disapear!!
  • Start pulling out the coupons that expire on 4/30/10. That will help speed up the process time when you clip on Sunday.
  • There is a $5 off 2 Benadryl products coupon that came out a few weeks ago. Two Itch relief sticks will be free almost everywhere!
  • I will be at the FRG meeting in Fort Bragg on May 6, 2010. We will discuss coupon classes to come!!!! :)
  • Heard it through the grape vine (my mama) that Food Lion is doing the same thing as CVS. Scan your MVP card as you walk in the store and it will print a WHOLE SHEET of coupons!
  • Live near a BJ's? Here is a free 60 day trial....
  • Earth Fare is now posting coupons! $85 in coupons! Go here....

5/2 coupon insert

It looks like it will be a busy weekend for couponers! Depending on your area, there will 4 inserts FULL of coupons! Remember to get the largest paper in your area! You can find the amount of coupons somewhere on the front of the paper (usually in the top right corner).

1 P&G
1 RedPlum
1 Smart Source
1 Food Lion Insert

Get your coupons ready!!!!

Harris Teeter will be tripling coupons next week!!! I will get a list posted for you as soon as I can!!

Saturday, April 17, 2010


**Just a reminder:** if you are buying 2 of the same items and you have a BOGO coupon and a $/1 coupon, then you can use them both. For example, CVS will have Head and Shoulders on sale starting tomorrow for $7.29. You can use your BOGO coupon and $1/1 coupon and get 2 for $6.29. These are the family siz ones, its an okay deal, considering the size of the bottle. Also, if something is already BOGO and you have BOGO coupons then the item *should* be free, you would pick up 2 per 1 coupon.

In case you aren't on facebook...

Today, I mainly updated through our fan page on Facebook. (G.R.I.T.S Coupons) Here is a run through just in case you missed anything. There wasn't much exciting news, sadly. New sales are coming up this week, and I am anxious to see what we will have. I think it will probably be pretty good. But what do I know?!

The "run through"

  • Fan Nabisco on Facebook and click the coupons tab, print a $1 off coupon for WAL MART. If you have been to a class then you know what to expect about WAL MART!
  • Fan Sara Lee on Facebook and click the coupons tab, print a $2 off coupon for lunch meat.
  • Head to Target this weekend and grab a reuseable bag for free. No purchase needed. Limit one per guest.

Like I said, nothing WAY exciting....

Need Some Recipes?

I get a lot of GREAT recipes that are CHEAP to make from Southern Plate. Christy is based out of Alabama. As you will see, it is not the place to go if you are a conscious, health nut! I have not made anything off of her site that my husband or I haven't enjoyed. They are easy and sooooooo yummy! Let me know if you try anything. Our favorite is the Crunchy Beef Casserole & Banana Pudding!

A few deals for this week.

It has been a while. Please keep praying for my family!

This deal is for Target....

You can still get the Airwick Freshmatic Ultra iMotions FREE! You can still get the Dial Handsoap FREE too. The Crest kids toothpaste is still FREE too.

Dove Hair Care $3.49
-$2 printable coupon
-$1 store coupon
=.49 cents!

PAMPERS CRUISERS are on clearance at Target and you can use coupons for these...Just a few dollars off, but you will still be saving.

There are also a lot of free travel size items, I usually do not waste my time with them though, because a lot of Targets (no matter what corporate says) will not accept the coupons for travel size games. I like to wait to see any deals come around for the full size items, especially if its something that I use. There are also a few good grocery store deals, but do not forget that Harris Teeter will be tripling until Tuesday night!!!

Food Lion has Snuggle for $2.99

-$3 Snuggle Fabric Softner RP 3/28

Walgreens has HALLS COUGH DROPS for .99 with the IN AD COUPON, check in your SS from 3/28 for the -$1 coupon.

I had no clue that it would take A WEEK to get internet hooked up in our new house! I almost went insane. Good thing I had my BlackBerry to keep me company!!!

This weekend and week to come may be a little rocky. My pawpaw is being put into hospice care today. Please keep him and our family in your prayers. This has been a rough year for all of us, but we know that God has complete control and he will look after him and his family.

How has everyone been doing at Harris Teeter?

Teeter Tips

Here are a few tips for the newbies. Do NOT get intimidated by all of the pros! I hope that this helps, and if you need more let me know!!!

  1. I am going to TRY MY BEST to have a list of the deals with coupon match ups.
  2. Harris Teeter will only allow 20 coupons per day.
  3. Coupons will triple up to .99
  4. I have found it to be best to have a LIST with your COUPONS attached to it for triples or super doubling. I have found that when it is a big sale of course everyone wants everything. I make a list (20 coupons only) and have those coupons attached. I also add extra items to the bottom JUST IN CASE they do not have something. This will make it easier for you to get what you need. Once you get everything you need/want you can wander around the store and see what to come back the next day for:)
  5. Some HT limit 3 coupons per item (you can't get 4 bags of chips and use 4 coupons). I do not think the one in Rock Hill limits.
  6. You do not have to buy 2 of the buy one get one free items. (1 will be 1/2 price)
  7. You MUST use your VIC card to get the deals. GO HERE IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE, and go ahead and sign up for EVIC.
  8. Have your coupons clipped and organized before you go.
  9. If you are able, go early! I'm talking 6am. :)for real...
  10. Get rainchecks, but remember you have to use them during that week for the coupon to TRIPLE.
  11. Use 2 coupons for BOGO! Call your store to make sure first...
  12. Act like a one will no the difference. Everyone makes mistakes...just remember that NO MATTER WHAT you are saving more than you would have in the past.

Let me know if you need to know more!!!!!

Hopefully everyone will be able to get some great deals!! Help everyone out and leave a comment if your store is participating! Make sure you tell the location!

coupon insert page

The coupon insert page has been updated!! Take a look to see what should be in the newspaper this weekend.

This is something that has been on my mind for a while.

In the past few years (since my husband has joined the military) I have had many young and single soliders cross into my path. A few Adam lost touch with, one followed with Adam through training, school, more training, and was then stationed at the same base with him, a couple had his back in Iraq and of course he had theirs, some are under him and he does his best to mentor them. They all have something in common and that is that they are American Soldiers signing a few years (or their whole life) over to help protect us, reguardless of their rank or metals, they are all here for us. I feel that we should be there for them when they need us.

If you give some of your stockpile away to a charity or to a family then that is great! Keep a few things in mind when you give your things away to a charity or to a homeless shelter. Homeless people will not benefit from laundry detergent or scrubbing bubbles...because they have no use for those things. I encourage you to give them food from your stockpile.

If you do not have anyone to give some of your extra things from your stockpile to then I encourage you to adopt a soldier. If you need help with this then I will be happy to help. This is something that I have had on my mind for a while, but until this past weekend I would have never thought that anyone could get so excited about laundry detergent or gold fish! I gave a few guys some this weekend and it sparked a conversation on how much detergent costs! It makes me happy that I was able to help them.

Many people can say that they need to make time to clip their own coupons and when I say what I am about to say many people will come back and still say, "they need to make time, they are capable". These men and women work up to 18 hours a day, and occasionally they have to work 24 hours. They spend months in warzones protecting us and I believe in a way we do owe them something, although they say they do not deserve is "just a job".

When you help someone out you will then see blessings around you everywhere!

I am sorry

Nothing new tonight, I am sick! Hopefully more in the morning. Fan BEBE on facebook

Problems at Target?

I recently received a phone call from my dear friend Jessica Garscadden (I love her), asking me about Target and their policy.

  • Target will not take my coupon because the item that I am purchasing is less than the amount on the coupon.
Target does not HAVE to take the coupon. They "may" reduce the coupon amount if it exceeds the retail value of the item. My best advice is to come prepared, with the Target store policy.

  • Target will not accept my coupon for the travel size item.
First: Read the coupon, does it say "except on trial size"? If it does not say travel size then again, head to customer service with your Target store policy. From what my dear friend told me, Target now says that they do not accept coupons for travel size items. I do not see that in the policy, correct me if I am wrong!

  • The cashier told me that they could not accept my coupon, even though it scanned just fine.
Simply ask why? If you follow what your coupon says and it goes through then the cashier should not void the coupon.

This is what Target's main customer service said to do in any of these cases.
Head to customer service to talk to the manager, tell them the situation. If they do not help you then the main customer service said to call them while standing at the store customer service. They can't help you if you are not in the store. The phone number is 18004400680.

I loooooove Target, but I don't love to shop there with coupons! As long as they follow by their policy and what is in it then there should not be any problems. Keep in mind, not all cashiers are coupon trained! Be friendly!

Arm and Hammer coupons!

Here are some pretty good coupons for Arm and Hammer. Looks like a lot of high dollar ones. Good for stores that do not double!

become a fan of BEBE on facebook

There will an exclusive offer to BEBE fans on facebook tomorrow! Make sure you become a fan! I will be back in the AM to remind you, 10 am PST

Starting a stockpile?

Remember that stockpiling is one of the best ways to save money! If you were at the class Monday then you know this by the examples that are in the manual. This coupon will help you get started...

Harris Teeter has this item BOGO for $6.99. Remember, when shopping at the Teeter you do not have to buy two BOGO, one will be at 1/2 price. If you decide to get 2 make sure you double check that you can use 2 coupons at your store. If not, do separate transactions!

Finish Quantumatic BOGO $6.99 ($3.49 for one)
this makes it .49 for one, or .99 for 2. Not too bad, I don't think!!

thanks lovin life

Facebook Fan Page...

I'm thinking about it......

I will let you know if I go through with it, pretty busy right now, but maybe tonight? Maybe.

Nabisco Cookies

If you became a fan of Nabisco on Monday and printed your coupon then head to Food Lion to use it. They are BOGO this week!!

Lindsey Rumford

Someone tell the child how to comment on the blog!!!! I would but HONESTLY all I have to do is click comment!!!

Food Lion: Save and Give Hope & my soap box for the day :o)

You don't see this very often (another reason why I don't shop at FL)! Food Lion has a new coupon booklet out in stores. Keep your eyes open for it! Remember your coupon ETIQUETTE that we talked about in class, you want to be able to help people by giving them some of your overage, but you DON'T WANT TO KEEP THEM FROM BEING ABLE TO GET THE DEAL ON THEIR OWN either. Be courteous to your fellow couponers and only get 2 books.

This brings me to another subject...

Is anyone having problems getting the FREE Purex from WAGS??? It has been brought to my attention that the Cherry Rd. store in RH, SC got a shipment in yesterday and after about an hour it was GONE! This is RIDICULOUS! If you have multiple coupons please go in multiple trips because other people NEED the detergent. I contacted the York store yesterday and shipment will be in today, but it will probably not last long either. If you NEED the detergent then I recommend you call before you waste your gas. I do not look for it to stay on the shelves very long there either, especially if I was not the only one to call. This is not only for people who NEED it, anyone should be able to purchase it, even if you are starting a stockpile or working on your stockpile. Be courteous and not RUDE when it comes to shopping. You may not feel the same way about this as I do. I am not saying this because I can't get the detergent, I have mine, I am saying this for everyone in RH, FM, York, and Clover that have tried.

Wendy's Bacon sandwich

$1 off Wendy's new Bacon Sandwich. I wonder how much this will make belly is growling!!

Big Lots

I don't post much about Big Lots because they do not accept coupons but, I found this interesting after I read about it and I might would try it if I had one close by. Comment and let us know which location that you looked at and if you got it for $1! It may be too good to be true!

Olay Body Wash $1
$15 MIR (mail in rebate) wyb 3
You make $12 after the rebate!

Clorox Toilet Bowl Wand

Do you remember when I told you to print the Clorox Toilet Bowl Wand coupon last week?! Here is the deal for it:

This is at Target.

Clorox Toilet Bowl Wand $9.70
-$5 Toilet Bowl Kit ^print from above
That makes it $4.70 oop.....
PLUS! There is a
-$5 rebate
making the wand FREE

New Tab at the top of the page....

The tab at the top of the page that is labeled "Coupon Inserts" will change week-to-week. When you click this tab you will notice what coupons will be available to you. Just remember, your paper may not have them all. Some maybe regional.

I hope everyone is having a good morning so far! I have to start packing boxes. BOO

Wednesday, March 3, 2010


First of all, I feel like I am in a control center, I have my computer and my husband's computer in front of me!
If you requested me send you the Commissary page or the price match page and you have not got it yet then shoot me an email and I will get it to you.
Also, I would like to thank you for your prayers!! We have found a renter and they will be moving in on Tuesday!! Now, I need you to pray that the builder will get us in our home!!! Thank you all so much!

Not Coupon Related....

Adam and I are asking for your prayers! We have spent a few weeks discussing the pros and cons of buying a house. We have decided that buying a house will give us more of an economical advantage and it will allow us to save more money. We are renting right now and we are stuck in a legal bind. We are asking that you pray for a renter for us! A family looked at the house this weekend and really liked the house, they told us that they need to be in by the 15th...we aren't scheduled to close on our house until the 20th, but we could maybe make that possible. We spoke with them today and they said they would really like to be in by this weekend! WHHHAATT?! We know that with God, all things are please pray that God will make this possible for us!

Thank you!

Thank you Crickett!!

We hit 20 followers, thanks to Crickett!!!

"this is a thing that i signed up for a long time ago when i was prego with braydon... a lot of the hospitals use gerber's formula which is the good start... by signing up for this they send you checks that really do work i use them when my kids were on formula... the first check is for like $11 which almost buys one can... then the rest of them they send you are like $4 & $5 check but still come in handy... they keep up with you as your child grows and they send you baby food coupons and coupons for snacks and juice... they really come in handy... i would say that i get about 1 or 2 coupon booklets a month by just signing up one time...
