Can you believe it’s the middle of summer already? We’ve been “stay-cationing” with the kids the last couple of weeks — this was my first almost-three-week spell without teaching a Super-Couponing class since I started last August! And believe it or not, there’s a lot to do in and around our area on a moderate budget.
Hope everyone had a fantastic 4th of July weekend! We had a great backyard barbecue and grilled out with free charcoal, ate cheap burgers and meats, and drank bargain beverages too!
If this week’s sales seem underwhelming, don’t worry – this is typical for post-holiday weeks. In fact, most post-holidays we get NO coupon inserts in the paper (again, because people typically don’t shop much the week after a holiday – they’re eating leftovers from their weekend get-togethers. The P&G insert was a nice bonus this week because it always comes out the first week of the month.
Whew! The $20/$10 Catalina deal at Jewel finally ended on Sunday, and I can’t be the only one who is almost sighing with relief that it’s over. :) Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE those deals… but they’re so good they almost make you crazy chasing around and shopping too! :) Hopefully everyone has enough yogurt, cooking oil, ketchup, mustard, and popcorn to last a LONG long time..! A big welcome to this week’s new Super-Couponers from Mundelein, Skokie and Round Lake!
A big welcome to this week’s new Super-Couponers from Schaumburg, Park Ridge, and Bridgeview!
Ready for a week of GREAT deals? If nothing else, you should be taking home as much cheap ice cream this week as you can store :)
A big welcome to this week’s new Super-Couponers from Skokie and Bloomingdale!
What a week for coupon shopping! A big welcome to all the new readers of the blog, and also to those of you who come back every week for great deals!
This week’s deals are posted EARLY in honor of my wonderful husband :) We’re celebrating our anniversary this week, so I got all my shopping and writing done ahead of schedule. Enjoy!
Happy Tuesday! My family is back from a crazy road trip (to Connecticut over the weekend – we spent more time in the car than we did on the East Coast!) As I’ve shared occasionally in class, any time I’m not home to run out to my driveway and retrieve my coupons that arrive Sunday […]
Hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! We had a great weekend planting our garden (the least expensive way to get fresh produce!) and grilling out — those $2.98 barbecue ribs, .19 ears of corn, .25 hot dogs and .38 hot dog buns made for a fabulously inexpensive cookout! (Of course, we washed it all down with delicious Kosher Cokes..!)
Now, it’s deal time! As always, a big welcome to our Super-Couponers from this past week’s classes in Niles, Lockport and Brookfield!
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for this week’s grocery deals! A big welcome to our Super-Couponers from this past week’s classes in Hampshire, Sugar Grove, Aurora, and McHenry!
A big welcome to our Super-Couponers from this past week’s classes in Sugar Grove, Prospect Heights, Crest Hill and Hampshire! And thanks for bearing with me posting the deals a couple hours behind schedule today. Yesterday was incredibly busy as I spent part of the day with the editor of my Super-Couponing class video & have been going over the first cut… and the night was spent teaching Super-2 to a very enthusiastic Hampshire crowd! (Sometimes my schedule truly does get the better of me… but now, it’s time for deals!)
