Save Big $$ Stacking Coupons

I want to enlighten my readers on how to get more out of your coupons with match-ups also known as coupon stacking. This is how extreme couponers save so much on their groceries. But you don’t have to be extreme to save a few bucks.

Add these word to your coupon vocabulary:

Store coupon:   Store coupons can only be used at certain grocery stores and  specifically say on them that they are a “store coupon”.  Many stores print out the manufacturer coupons that have their store logo on them. These are still considered a manufacturer coupon. This coupon can be used anywhere manufacturer coupons are allowed and are not considered store coupons.

Manufacturer coupon: These typically are the coupons you find in your Sunday newspaper inserts or print them out here at jennysfreecoupons.com on the groceries tabs or click on the Coupon Section  A, B, C, D on the right had side of the website.

Stacking: Combine the “store coupon” with the “manufacturer coupon” on the  same product. Here is the  double savings on an item.

Filler: Filler items are extremely low cost items that can be purchased to follow store policy and allow you to stack higher priced items.

Now that you know the terms, let’s break down how to stack coupons. When you stack coupons you are using a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon to increase your savings. Many large retailers allow coupon stacking, including Kroger, Meijer, Walgreens, CVS and Target. However, each store has different rules and policies that come with stacking coupons. I have had a nice experience with Target.

For example, Walgreens will let you stack coupons, but you have to have the same amount of items and coupons. You can’t have more coupons than you have merchandise.  So, you can’t go in buy 1 razor and use 2 coupons. This is where filler items can come into play. If Walgreens were having a sale where you can get a pack of gum for $0.39, this would be a great filler item. It doesn’t cost that much money, but it allows you to stay within the guidelines of their coupon policy. Here is a fictional scenario for you to see what I am talking about. To max out your savings

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor, $9.99

Use: $5/1 Gillette Razor (5/28 RP)

And: $4/1 Gillette Razor (WCB — Walgreens monthly coupon booklet)

Final Price: $0.99

Filler: Wrigley’s Gum $0.39

Walgreen’s requires that you can only use as many coupons as you have items, this scenario would work. You bought 1 pack of gum and 1 razor and used 2 coupons in total. So, for $1.38 you get both items and still saved $9.

Stacking coupons is a great way to save more money when couponing. However, my advice to you is to look into each store’s coupon policy. Do their reward programs count as coupons also? Are coupons that go on your store card considered manufacturer or store? Read between the lines it is not as hard as you think to really capitalize on stacking coupons and saving even more. Happy couponing.

So remember, if you see a great coupon. Don’t delay-print it out today!

Save Money on Your Groceries

I have always been a frugal person. I enjoy cooking and getting the most out of my grocery shopping trips.   I try and keep at least one to two months of food in my pantry in case of a hurricane and push comes to shove there is food in the house. I use coupons and I pay attention to sales and prices.

Here are some of the ways you can save money on groceries:

My grandmother always told me to avoid dented cans. She said they were not safe and I could get food poisoning.  Now I have discovered that the dented cans are ok as lond as they are not open, breached or bulging.  The bottom line is the dent does not effect the food inside. Dented cans can sell for half of what the regular price is. So, before you do your shopping just check in the discount section of your grocery store to see if there may be something that you were gonna buy anyway at full price without the dent.

Something else you can do is buy items on sale and put them in the freezer.  Meats like steak, chicken, fish and shrimp can be placed it the freezer for 6- 18 months. But remember to eat them in the order they were placed into the freezer.  First in, first out. Pay attention to the date on the package.  Making soups and chili is a great meal to pull out of your freezer for an instant meal that will taste just as great as the day you made it.

Remember just because they say it is on sale does not mean it is a good deal. Sometimes the off store brand may be cheaper than the on sale brand. So do the math and see if it works in your favor.

Basics of Couponing

I’m not a coupon expert but I can assist anybody who is interested in learning on how to get started into the coupon world.

My friend. Shelia has been teaching couponing classes for the last six months. She teaches the basics of how to read a coupon and how to find coupons. In additon to this she will show you how to be organized with your coupons, so you can find them when you need to redeem them.

Students mentioned to Shelia that sometimes they have tried to use a coupon for an item or size not listed on the coupon and the store accepted it. This does not always happen. You should read the coupon carefully to avoid disappointment at the cash register.

Just last week I decided to get back into couponing to save my household some money. I accidently purchased the same product I normally do but I forgot the coupon. I hate when this happens. I have been thinking about it for a while and now I leave the coupon at home.

Many times I will skip buying the product, especially if It is for $1.00 off a item that is usually $4.00. Either I will run back home to get my coupon or I may skip buying it for now because I know I will be back at the store regardless in a day or so and make sure I bring my coupon this time.

Here are some simple tips I learned from Sheila regarding coupon verbiage:

1. Pay attention to the amount of items you need to purchase.

2. Save $1 on two. This means you must  purchase two items to get the $1 off.

3. Buy one, get one free coupons (BOGO). Many times you will need to purchase two items to get one free.

4. Any size, any variety -  this is a super coupon because chances are you are able to get a nearly free item if you purchase the smaller size.

5. The words “Redeem only at” or “redeem exclusively at” coupons are a way for retailers to steer you in the direction of their store while partnering with the manufacturer. The word “only” is key here. If the coupon is a manufacturer coupon and it states “redeem at Walgreens” but doesn’t say “only” or “exclusively,” you can use this coupon at any retailer.

6. Limit one coupon per purchase-  means you may purchase one item per coupon. So if I were to have a coupon that says $1 off A1A Steak Sauce, this means that I may purchase one A1A Steak Sauce with that coupon.

This is just a brief introduction to the verbiage of couponing. There are more coupon terms but this shoud help a newbie get started.

Woman on TLC’s Extreme Couponing

How much money do you think you can save by using coupons? The couponing craze is all the buzz and has captured the united states and one mom is sharing her findings with the entire nation..

“It’s like getting free money. Coupons are like cash or a prepaid credit card. Why would you give away free money?” That’s the motto a Livingston county resident Melissa Zambitto lives her life by. She’s started coupon cutting as a hobby into a part-time job — to save her family thousands of dollars a year. “Couponing is a more than a game for me. It’s how you can  make the most of your money. You want to see just how far you can stretch your money.”

All that stretching caught the attention of producers from TLC’s “Extreme Couponing.” “It was a wonderful experience when TLC came out to do the episode for the show.”

For three days the crew followed her around shopping and coupon cutting, documenting everything from her stash of grocery merchandise to a eight-hour stopping spree. “Hopefully with all the media exposure it’s put couponing under a new even better light. It’s not as stressful as people might think couponing out to be.”

Zambitto has also created her own coupon website so she can share her couponing secrets. “I break down the deals and sales and tell you if you use this special coupon from this insert with this particular deal at this store during this week. You’ll get numerous items for free.  One of my favorite deals that I ever foundt was these board games. They were $5 each and there was a $5 coupon tear pad in front of them. So i got the board game for free.”

By taking a look at the inventory in her basement, it’s clear that she’s has been able to get a lot for free. “If you can go to your local grocery store and leave with $200 worth of groceries and only pay sales tax or whatever you have to pay, why would you leave paying $200?”

And hearing that Zambitto only spends about $40 to $50 a week on toiletries and groceries, it’s clear she’s doing something right. “When you’re in the checkout lane and when you see your receipt at the end of the day and you see you’ve saved 85-percent, 65-percent – it’s a real rush. It’s a good feeling.”

Melissa Zambitto doesn’t keep all that inventory in the basement to herself. Anything her and her family can’t use they donate to places like the Ronald McDonald House and local food banks.

Besides having a full-time job, two children and couponing, she also has a book coming out called “Legal Shoplifting” telling everyone how she manages to get so much groceries for free when she goes shopping.

Coupon Tips: TLC show ‘Extreme Couponing’ is far from reality

 

“Extreme Couponing” is back.

The second season of the TLC cable TV show with its over-the-top coupon shopping trips and shoppers with enormous, house-filling stockpiles premiered last month.

Almost immediately, shoppers from around the country filled my inbox with questions.

“Have you seen ‘Extreme Couponing?’ Is it real?”

“Why haven’t you taught readers how to do extreme couponing like on that show?”

While “Extreme Couponing” is considered a reality TV show, it is important to understand that what you see on the show is entertainment, not reality.

You and I will never easily duplicate the level of savings shoppers achieve on the show for a simple reason.

Some of the stores where the extreme shopping trips are filmed don’t play by the same rules they enforce for the rest of their customers.

In the season premiere, a shopper told of her goal to feed a bargain-priced lunch to her church’s parishioners.

She purchased 60 bags of salad and 100 boxes of pasta that were on sale for $1 each.

She used 50-cent coupons that the store doubled in value to $1, so she took home all the items free.

The problem is, the store featured in this episode doesn’t double coupons. At least, not for anyone else.

As soon as the episode aired, coupon savings forums lit up with comments from shoppers familiar with Bello’s Market, the family-owned grocery store in Erie, Pa., where the segment was filmed.

These shoppers shared the same outrage: “Hey, that store doesn’t double coupons!”

For the church

I called Jim Bello, the owner, and asked if it was his store’s policy to double coupons for shoppers.

“It was not the policy to do this,” he said. “We normally don’t double, but we did double for them, because it was for the church.”

During the last season of “Extreme Couponing,” a Kroger-owned store in Arizona got in trouble with shoppers after it dispensed with its usual policy and doubled coupons for the TV show.

After shoppers complained, the store released a statement saying, “The show was done for promotional purposes.”

Bello has received his share of calls from disgruntled regulars.

“I’ve gotten a couple of really nasty phone calls about this, asking if we double coupons now,” he said. “We’re independent, we can’t afford to. Grocery stores here really don’t double.”

Unfortunately, the list of stores that will bend rules for the shopping trips depicted on “Extreme Couponing” gets longer by the day.

Lowes Foods in Winston-Salem, N.C., issued an online apology after allowing “Extreme Couponing” to film in two of its stores.

The store acknowledged that it had waived limits of its coupon policy for the benefit of the cameras.

“While we can not undo our participation in the taping of ‘Extreme Couponing,’ what we can do is share with you our reason for doing so and some truths that will not be aired with the show.

“Lowes Foods agreed to allow the taping in our store . . . to show viewers that we are a coupon-friendly grocer with outstanding products and customer service.

“Some of what appears in the clip you saw was staged by the production company . . . We definitely made a poor decision by participating in the show.”

This season, just as in the last, viewers are noticing that shoppers on the show appear to misuse coupons.

Using coupons for one product to buy a completely different one is fraud.

Most stores do not allow shoppers to get away with this dishonest practice.

A blind eye

But, when the cameras roll, many stores that participate on the show appear to turn a blind eye, pushing these coupons through so that the shopper can “save” even more money.

When stores acknowledge that they, too, bend and break the rules in order to create the made-for-TV illusion of remarkable savings, “Extreme Couponing” is about as far from reality as you can get.

The truth is, the show undermines honest couponers and stores that play by the rules.

Frugal Ways to Expand Your Living Space

Go outside

I live in a small home and am looking to increase the living space. Sometimes, you  may need  to consider ideas “out of the box”, If my yard seems useless and boring. I have some great ideas  to dramatically increase my living space in a cool, fun and hip way.

My house has a tremendous amount of outdoor living space. After listening to Yern Yip from HGTV celebrity and interior designer says,   “The most comprehensive lease expensive thing to do is create an outside room.,”  According to Yip, roughly anything we can find indoors has a reflection designed to withstand Mother Nature. He suggests the following items: Curtains, throw rugs, chairs, cocktail tables, end tables, lighting and possible  beds that are fade, mold and mildew resistant.

There are many things you can do to make your backyard a cool living area. He  suggests installing a premade retreat in your backyard or outside area. A gazebos, is a great structure that will give you a comfortable feeling. They can range in cost from $1,700 to $18,220. We found this out from a website called Gazebo Depot. They come in a wide variety of shapes, colors and styles. The gazebe fabric is waterproof and will protect your new room from rain and prevent object repairs and other weather-related problems.  Something else that I have done to make my outdoor living space nicer is to decorate with plants. Go to a nursery or Home Depot garden department and buy large potted plants. I bought large boston ferns which take up a vast amount of space and offer a pleasant appearance. Now,  I love my new outside yard I designed in a frugal fashion. In the end of my new cool living space I added  a set of wind chimes along with the plants. This gave me a very zen environment I love  to relax too.

Extreme Couponing Saves Money

Like so many households, a vast portion of my income is spent on food and groceries. When my children were young, I could get by on a gallon of milk a week. But as they got older it changed. At one point I thought about buying a cow and milking him myself. It was nothing for our household to go through 3 gallons of milk, 3 loaves of bread, 2 pounds of lunchmeat per week.

In an attempt to save time and money. Every week I make large quanitys of food and turn the leftovers into new and exciting meals. For example I make a rump roast for dinner and after I will grind the meat in a food processor, add some Au Jus and place the meat on a hogie roll. Now, I have created a grinder sandwich for lunch or dinner. My family loves it.

I started to watch the TV show “Extreme Couponing.” It amazes me to see people who spend hours clipping coupons and spend their time traveling to stores with hundreds of dollars worth of groceries and end up paying $4.78. Last week I was at a grocery store and the lady in front of me had a whole shopping cart filled with groceries. She carried a folder filled with coupons. It took her about 20 minutes to dig through her coupon folder and pull the coupons she desired.  It was time consuming but she saved a bunch.

It does not matter whether you have coupons for 1- 2 items or 25 – 50 coupons. It still makes you feel good to get a deal and save a buck or two!

This  is what I do. I know that I use certain products on a regular basis. I search the coupon database on coupon websites like, JennysFreeCoupons.com. In addition to this  I get the Sunday Newspaper and clip the one needed. Once I find the products I will use, I place them into my coupon  box. So, before I go to the grocery store I sort through my box and grab the  coupons of the items I need today. Sometimes, I don’t need it this week but I will get it next week.

“Extreme Couponing” Spurrs Stolen Newspapers

Wow! Sunday newspapers are being stolen right out of the rack. Just the other day on the news a man got aressted here in Miami for putting quarters in a new box and taking all the papers for the coupons. Manufacturers and retailers are getting frustrated and shoppers are clashing with store grocery managers over their piles of coupons and carts of items.

This is the advent of extreme couponing, popularized by the TLC show of the same name about people who clip coupons obsessively, is sparking a huge backlash as some manufacturers and retailers complain that the pursuit of a big bargain has a real ugly side. They clear shelf and laugh and tell other patrons “You Lose”

“A fairly large number of people are going into stores with really unrealistic expectations,” said Bud Miller, executive director of Coupon Information Corp., which represents major manufacturers such as Johnson Johnson, Procter Gamble and Kraft Foods.

“Extreme Couponing” started a new season last month. The show is in many ways a Zeitgeist for our recession-scarred era. It depicts bargain-obsessed people coupon-clipping for days, and in some cases even Dumpster diving for even more coupons.

The shoppers then fill their many grocery carts with hundreds of items, occasionally clearing out store shelves in the process. Then they present their overloaded carts and hefty stacks of coupons to a cashier, who rings up hundreds of dollars in savings. Afterwards, it’s back to the couponers’ homes, where they can show off to their friends bursting storage rooms and basements piled high with diapers, soap powder, can goods and other products bought in bulk with coupons at almost unbelievable bargain prices.

There is no need to go extreme:  Just use smart tips for couponers

The coupon-clipping tales have inspired plenty of people to give couponing a try, but the real-world results aren’t always as that impressive.

  • In Florida, ABC News reported that a woman said her local grocery store would not take her coupons because she was such a heavy coupon user and it was just to much for them to handle.
  • In Ohio, a local television station reported that a woman ran into trouble while trying to check out five carts of items, and plenty of coupons to go with them.
  • In Kansas, NBC News reported that a woman clashed with store managers when she tried to use a competitor’s coupons in their store.

Coupon redemption surged 28 percent in 2009 to 3.4 billion coupons, according to consulting firm Inmar. It stayed at that level in 2010, but that tide might be changing for 2011

Inmar reported last week that coupon redemptions rose 5 percent in the second quarter of this year, as compared to a year earlier.

Matt Sharp, the executive producer of “Extreme Couponing,” said the aim of the show is to document how people use coupons in over-the-top ways, and that the show does not condone behavior that violates store rules or manufacturers’ policies, or breaks the law.

Manufacturers and retailers say they want people to use coupons after all, it’s a way to encourage people to try new products and to inspire loyalty. But Miller, of Coupon Information Corp., blames TLC’s show for making people think they can abuse coupon rules in the pursuit of a big bargain, or see their grocery bill reduced to practically nothing and that is simply just not true. Miller said some stores have recently been more explicit in their policies on how many coupons a customer can use (10-15), and what type of coupons will be accepted.

Before extreme couponers even get to the store, there’s also the matter of collecting the coupons. Newspapers across the country have recently reported an uptick in Sunday newspaper thefts, which they blame on people trying to get more coupons for less money.

The News Observer in North Carolina reported last month that the newspaper was moving some newspaper sales inside stores, rather than relying on outside racks where people might be more likely to help themselves to a load of papers which contain the coupons. Especially on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Dan Schaub, senior vice president of audience development and membership service with The Sacramento Bee, another newspaper in the same McClatchy chain, said  ”Some newspapers are taking steps to address occasional thefts.”

Still, he said newspapers also are seeing an upside to the couponing craze as more people buy Wednesday and Sunday papers because they want the coupon inserts.
