Your Best & Worst couponing experiences in 2009!

This last week of 2009, I would love to hear your best and worst couponing experiences. Just email them to me and I'll post them throughout the week.

The best way I know to encourage others who are wanting to try couponing is to tell them our success stories (and sometimes our mistakes). So if you had a great experience this year with coupons, deals and savings, now's your time to share!

If you want to send picture of you, that'd be great. I'll post it with your story.

Books, CDs and DVDs - How much do you spend each year?

How much do you spend on DVDs, CDs and Books in a year?

If the answer is close to $0 - then hooray for you! You must know your local library really well! Our library not only offers books for free checkout but also up to 3 DVDs at a time and several CDs at once as well. We love our library!

However, if your answer to that question is "Hmmmm...... I probably spend a bunch!" then this post is for you.

Our family loves to listen to music, read books and watch movies but truthfully the kids get tired of the movies sometimes and they are just taking up space on the shelf.

So how do we keep the selection fresh so nobody gets bored with own personal library? By swapping with people all over the country.

If you've read this blog long, you probably already know all about swaptree but please allow me to remind you about it once more.

We have completed over 85 swaps in the past 3 years! That means that for less than $2 each, we have been able to try out Disney DVD's (Little Mermaid brand new!, Peter Pan), Little Einsteins, Barbie movies, Action movies, Harry Potter hardback books (with no markings), a brand new book Eat This Not That, bestsellers like Why Do Men Have Nipples, Would You Rather books..... I can't even remember all we have tried out.

We have used the DVDs for Christmas and birthday presents many times, cleared out our shelves, and even bought used books, cds or dvds at yard sales to try then posted them on swaptree.

My point????? Swaptree really works for us! We save tons of money and get to try out new books, movies and music.

Are you interested yet? Click here to see step by step directions to get you started. If you have questions, feel free to email me. I love this site and really want to see others save money on their media and books too!

*One note, if you want to trade game system games, I suggest you don't put anything on your want list except other game system games so you don't get stuck trading a high value wii game for a kids cd or cartoon dvd.

Nestle Very Best Baby Club

I nursed all 3 of my kids but I still signed up for the Nestle Very Best Baby Club. They send you coupon books every few months as soon as your baby is born till at least his 1st birthday. When I received them, the coupons allowed me to 'buy' free formula for all 3 of my babies. Even though I didn't use formula, it was nice to have it in the house for that rare emergency or to pass on to my other friends who were using formula.

Merry Christmas!

Oh what fun it is to look for deals, save money and find free stuff! But there's a time and a place to know when to stop and just enjoy the other side of life. So tonight and tomorrow - I hope all my readers, friends and family have fun spending time with family!

Merry Christmas!

***For those of you who have free time tomorrow and are going to be on the computer, I have found some cool deals that you may have missed but are still available. I'll have them posted in the morning - just in case you need a break from the hoopla of Christmas morning :-)

Kroger price guarantee - just a reminder

Just a reminder: Kroger generally has a price guarantee policy. If your item scans at the wrong price, you could get the item free. Just point out the wrong price to the cashier and have them check the price on the shelf. If it is wrong, they will usually just give you the item for free. (not always but usually).

Shop early or shop last minute????

I have been shopping for Christmas all year! I love planning and finding the deals all year long. That way when Christmas week gets here, I don't have to fight the crowds or pay last minute prices.

But..... I know some people love to save all their shopping for the last minute.

One of the scary things about shopping early is that there is always 'just one more deal' that looks good. But for me, I don't spend money after my shopping is done . I can relax this week knowing that my kids are going to have some cool stuff under the tree that I didn't have to pay much money for because I was a smart shopper all year long.

What's your shopping style? Do you shop all year or save it all for the last minute? Are you able to stop when your list is done or do you keep looking for that 'one last deal'?

A surpringly great place to stock up on stuffed animals!

My kids love stuffed animals! (I should put that in bold, italics, underline and caps!) However, I refuse to buy them at new prices in the stores. I also refuse to buy used animals that look like they have been drooled on, spit up on or loved to death by another child.

Here comes the fun of GoodWill! Today we stopped in to buy a reward toy for my son who is almost potty trained! We hit the jackpot!

1 Webkinz elephant, 1 Webkinz pinto pony, Animal Ally Unicorn (from ToysRus), even a Build A Bear Bunny with real Build a Bear shirt. These animals were all brand new - with tags! I don't know what people were thinking to throw them out but we were thrilled!
Each animal was a huge .50 each!!!! Several came home to be instantly loved and enjoyed but a few others made it home secretly so they will magically appear under the tree at Christmas.

My point? Don't discount the treasures you can find at Goodwill or Salvation Army. We have found some really amazing things at Goodwill! What's your best find? Here's your chance to brag a bit!

Passing on the savings....

3 examples of how I passed on the savings to strangers this past week:
  1. I had a ToysRus $5 off $25 coupon that I couldn't use because I didn't spend enough (My total was less than $4), so instead of throwing the coupon away, I noticed that the lady in line behind me had a huge cart of stuff. I asked her if she wanted the coupon. Of course, she was thrilled! Her savings - $5!
  2. I had 8 $1.00 coupons off Target brand wipes - making each packet of wipes .27 each. But I didn't need those. (I only used 3.) Since they were expiring in 2 days, I saw a lady with a small child. I asked her if she wanted the coupons. She was very pleased!
  3. In Old Navy, I had a $10 free gift card plus I had a 15% off coupon. I was not allowed to use both, so what did I do? I turned to the people behind me and offered the 15% coupon to them. They acted like I had given them such a huge gift!

Is this weird? Doesn't everyone share their coupons when they can't use them? What kind of response did you get when you passed on savings?

Lowes Build & Grow - Follow up

We went to the Lowes Build and Grow Gingerbread House Activity today! It was a great free activity for the kids. They were able to build the gingerbread house, plus they received the free Lowes apron, goggles and a badge for the event that I can attach to their apron. All for the great price of FREE!

Next week, Dec 12, they can build a Christmas ornament. So guess where my kids want to be next Saturday? At Lowes, of course!

Here's a link to sign up for next Saturday's free clinic.

I signed up all 3 of my kids even though my youngest is only 2 1/2. He wasn't interested in building the house today but we were able to bring the kit home so he can build it later. The Lowes clinician said if the parents are willing to help the kids, he didn't care about the age.

When is a good deal not a good deal?

Today someone started to tell me about a 'great deal on toys at such and such store'. For me, there are probably not very many 'great deals on toys' that will get me excited now because I have already finished my toy shopping. That said.... I would still pick up a great deal on a toy if the toy was free but I'm not going to spend more money on toys just because it is a 'great deal'.

So, when is A good deal not a good deal?


  1. I can't afford it.
  2. I don't need it and I don't have someone who does need it.
  3. I have to drive out of the way to get it.

Do you have deals that you let pass because they just 'aren't a good deal for you?' I surely hope so! If we all hit every deal, we'd not only be extremely tired but we'd have no space in our house.

Happy deal hunting - but hunt wisely!

Consumer Village - Surveys for $$$

There are alot of survey sites around that claim to send you surveys and then you get money or gift cards. Alot of them take forever and just aren't worth my time. I've joined many but only participate in a few.

Here is one of my favorites: Consumer Village!

I just deposited a $5.00 gift card into my Amazon account. This will go nicely with a Christmas present I am wanting to buy my husband.

Here's how you can get started.
  • Sign up here.
  • You will get survey invitations occasionally in your email box. There aren't very many per month so it doesn't flood your account.
  • When you take a survey and qualify you will receive tokens in your account.
  • As soon as you hit 500 tokens, you get sent a code number worth $5 to deposit in your account.
  • Most of the time, even if you don't qualify for the survey, you will still be given a few tokens just for trying.

*Just a note: Sometimes when I refer you to a company they tell me thanks by giving me referral credits or extra tokens. Not here. This in no way benefits me by you signing up. I just know I love getting the extra gift card $ and I want you to have this opportunity too.

New ecoupons at Upromise

It's the beginning of the month, so there are new ecoupons at to load to your Kroger or CVS card. (If you are new to Upromise, here's my post telling you all the details.)

These ecoupons don't save you money at the store; instead they accumulate toward your childs college expenses down the road.

I just heard from someone this week who is up to $80 in their fund (and their daughter is not even 10 yet!) She's got time to help that figure grow! We're still around $10 in our account but I'm hoping with these ecoupons it will grow to at least buy a text book by the time they hit college. We'll see.......

Free Christmas postcard from gmail

Click here to send a real paper postcard for free - paid for by Gmail. They will mail it to the person of your choice.

Prescription coupons - Wow!

I had saved a coupon for $10 gift card with NEW or Transferred prescription to Target. I don't even have a Target pharmacy near me. Here's where it gets fun!

Today my daughter had to go to the doctor for a very minor illness. She was given a prescription. (BTW.... she is almost completely fine by now and probably would have been fine even without going to the doc this time. Oh well..... with kids you just never know huh?) I took it to my local CVS. Got the medicine, gave them the Target coupon (they take all competitor prescription coupons) and they gave me a free $10 CVS gift card!

True, I had to pay for the doc visit and the medicine but since that was unavoidable, I love being able to turn around and make some extra money!

Note to self...... save ALL prescription coupons just in case one of the kids gets sick and I end up needing medicine.

Getting Green $$$$ - by Going Green!

Did you know you can get free gift cards from Office Depot by recycling printer ink cartridges?

I took 5 off brand used ink cartridges to OD today and they applied it to my Work/Life Rewards account. (Get a free account here or ask about it in the store.) You may turn in up to 5 a day. For each cartridge you will get a $3.00 credit! As soon as your account gets to at least $10, they will send you a Office Depot gift card the following month!

Too good to be true? That's what I think. But you better believe I'm going to be saving those cartridges and see how many more I can recycle.

The worse thing that can happen is that I don't get the money. At least I'm not putting the cartridges in the trash. I'll let you know if I get a reward card in January!

Today I checked my email and I have an email from that says"Cyber Monday Deal - Your $10 gift is enclosed!" Since there are no magazines I'm interested in buying right now, I love the fact I can redeem this for a $10 check.

I scrolled down to the very bottom of the email and in really small letters is says 'redeem for cash'. I clicked on that link and entered my name, address and gift code number from the email.

I got this reply on the screen:
Thank you for visiting to redeem a Cash Card.
A check in the amount of $10.00 will be sent to the postal address provided.

Did you forget to sign up? Here's my post with directions! Sign up today so you will get this great offer next time. (This is my 3rd time since March that I have received this!)
