coupons1.JPGWelcome to Coupon Chaos, where our readers share their best ideas for saving on shopping!

This is THE week for sales, not only Black Friday, but groceries and staples as well...huge savings!! Why, our very own DP reported that at Publix she "spent 35.93 saved $128.00 Whoo hoo!!" Whoo hoo is right DP, way to go! You are holding out on us, we need details!

Thanks Michele for telling us the whereabouts of the $5 off coupon in the circular. That's what this post is all about. Coupon Chaos is sort of lost in the flurry of Black Friday posts on Shop-O-Matic, but if you get a chance, find us and tell us where you are saving this week.

If you just can't squeeze it all in, you are too busy plotting your Black Friday strategies, then tell us that too. Which lines will you be in on Black Friday? What items will you try to snag the big deal on? Happy shopping. --Super Saver Kathy

Coupon Chaos: Share your best savings tips here


coupons1.JPGWelcome to Coupon Chaos, where our readers share their best ideas for saving on shopping!

I had a cocktail party conversation with my friend Bill the other night. He was impressed when a woman in front of him at the downtown Ft Lauderdale Publix bought an overflowing cart full of groceries for $15.34.

Now, a response could turn into a very long blog post. First of all, where is that woman, and why isn't she sharing on Coupon Chaos?

Since I don't want to hog all the Shop-O-Matic real estate, after years of writing this blog and scouring the planet for coupons and deals for our readers, I can tell you that saving like that requires prep time and organizational skills. And a lot of coupons!

One trick is to find the coupons. Where do you get your $5 off $50 coupons? Where do you find your store coupons that stack with manufacturers coupons? Do you surf the Internet for printable coupons, join manufacturers' facebook groups, and email your favorite brands?

Share with us your tips on fattening that coupon stash. Happy shopping. --Super Saver Kathy

Printable coupon: $15 off $75 at Office Depot


There are a few office supply coupons floating around right now. Click here for a $15 off $75 at Office Depot, good through 11/15. I like to use these to stock up on printer ink...it doesn't take much to get to $75.

Staples sent me one this week as well, but it was a PDF, and I'm too technologically impaired to share a PDF on a website. But I'll bet if you google Staples $15 coupon, you'd find it.

Printable coupon: Free small Quiznos sub


5013_LeftSide.jpgThe downtown Sun Sentinel employees are going to like this coupon, since there is a Quiznos on the next block! Hi, newsroom friends, greetings from Deerfield, this one's for you! And for you, dear readers.

Join the Quiznos Club and get a free small sub, with the purchase of a regular drink and regular price chips. Click here to join. Don't tell anybody, but it let me print a few coupons, not just one.

I thought there might be a catch, so I tested it tonight, in a Plantation store. Got a tasty toasted Mesquite Chicken sub, chips and a drink for $2.43. Being on the world's tightest budget, this was a real treat, since the first thing I let go in this economy were fountain drinks, or any 'restaurant-bought' drinks, for that matter.

How about you, how many of you still pay $2 for a soft drink with a sandwich? Am I the only one who suffers through iced tap water with lunches? Do tell.....

Match your coupons to sales at SavingsAngel


clipping-coupons.jpg

We just got a press release from SavingsAngel.com with some interesting statistics. SavingsAngel is a West Michigan based company that uses technology to match store sales to coupons. I was surprised by some of the statistics, so I thought I'd share them with you.

The gist of the information is that couponers tend to be more wealthy than non-couponers. "According to Neilsen, 38 percent of the "super heavy" couponers and 41 percent of coupon "enthusiasts" come from households with incomes greater than $70,000. Usage among those earning $100,000 and up were the primary drivers of coupon growth in 2009.

According to Neilsen, 83 percent of products purchased with manufacturers' coupons in 2009 were done by just 22 percent of households.

coupons1.JPGWelcome to Coupon Chaos, where we share our best savings tips with each other.

I'm totally time-challenged these days...blogging after hours, when I have a million other things to do, like tackle the paperwork piles on the kitchen counter. Did I say piles? Maybe I should say mountains! Do you ever get the feeling that everything in your life needs a part of you?

I'm sorry I haven't gotten 'Coupons in Advance' up lately. I've heard from enough of you to know it is missed, I appreciate your kind words...it's nice to know my efforts were appreciated. I love our readers, that's why I'm still blogging at 1am.

Andrea, Katiria, and DP, you've kept our coupon presence alive with your savings tips each week. Thanks for that. Lets hear from more of our savvy shoppers. We know you are out there.

Quick tip: Last day for a few good deals at Winn Dixie. McCormick Vanilla Extract is BOGO using two coupons from 10/3 Red Plum makes this a sweet deal. Tampax BOGO, use 2 coupons from 9/28 P&G, wow, the 10-20 pack is fifty cents! Stock up. But act fast, sale ends when the store closes on Tuesday.

It's buy one get one free this week at Winn-Dixie, but hurry, sale good through Tuesday. Buy one 64-oz frozen yogurt or ice cream for $6.79, get one free.

September is National Coupon Month


coupons1.JPGIn honor of National Coupon Month, Red Plum did a study to get insights from over 16,000 shoppers. The results show that today's frugality has become second nature to most Americans.

The majority of responders didn't feel the need to conceal the fact that they were using a coupon, even on a first date. To see more of what Red Plum is doing for National Coupon Month, check out Dash-4-Deals at www.redplum.com/dash.

On a personal level, I've noticed that fellow shoppers have more patience when they are behind me in line. Remember in the old days when folks used to groan and noisily change checkout lines when they saw the coupon stash.

Lately, I've noticed, there is more curiosity than annoyance. Last night, as I bought ten Febreeze $6.99 candles @ 2 for $5 and used two $2 coupons (thanks to DP) making them fifty cents each, EVERYONE wanted to know how I did that. The cashier even ran to get an old Sunday paper to find the coupon. BTW, it was in the 8/29 P&G insert. (Late addition: be sure to read Andrea's comment below.)

Couponing is fun for me. Some folks do Sudoku, some crosswords, I have a friend that enters contests. I have less and less spare time these days, but I still enjoy finding the deal...most of them lately right here in our Coupon Chaos comments.

Lets have a chat. How many of you coupon for fun? Necessity? The Red Plum study showed nowadays most folks used the money saved to pay down debt or buy necessities.

How many hours a week do you spend digging for deals? How much do you think you save every week? What do you do with the money saved? We'd love to hear from you. Don't be shy, we know you're out there. --Super Saver Kathy

Coupons in Advance: Up to $2528 in coupons in Sunday's Sun Sentinel


Wow! Did that get your attention? The coupons in Sunday's paper get counted and recounted before that number goes on the masthead each week. This week that number will be $2528.

There is some variety from zone to zone, which is why we say 'up to $2528.' Let's say the Palm edition might have a coupon for a local restaurant, but that coupon doesn't appear in the Broward edition. There could be a slight variety in the counts from zone to zone, therefore we say 'up to $$,' rather than an exact number.

Most of our 'Coupons in Advance' readers want to know about the grocery coupon inserts. It's a holiday weekend, and like many holiday weekends, there will be no inserts this week. But there are plenty of current coupons from weeks past, and plenty of sales, so please share your savings tips in the comments below.

Coupon Chaos or Couponing 101


coupons1.JPGLast week Clarisse wrote to ask for help getting supplies for her brother stationed in Afghanistan. Grateful to our sons and daughters for serving our country, my first reaction might be to take up a collection and send him the items on his list.

Second reaction: Lets make this a coupon lesson, and teach Clarisse how to shop with coupons. This will be a lesson for all of you wishing to learn, "What is all the hype about coupon shopping?"

First, Clarisse, start saving two of each coupon insert from your Sunday papers. I happen to know you work, so you probably won't have time to clip and organize, just file them away by the date they ran in the paper.

Next, register at all the stores in your shopping area. Get a CVS Extra Care Card, register at Winn-Dixie, get on Albertson's mailing list. These memberships make you eligible for extra savings, as well as coupons and offers by mail or email. Anytime you see store coupons, grab two copies, to combine with your manufacturers coupons. Always visit the coupon kiosks to look for anything new, they go fast.

Your list is mostly basic items that are often on sale and often have coupon match-ups. Here is your list: "Gillette Razors, Shaving Cream, toothpaste, mouthwash, Palmers Coco Butter, Dove Body Wash, Old Spice Deoderant, baby wipes, baby powder, tropical trail mix, and fig newtons." You also said, "I looked up these items online at Walmart and I estimated that it would cost me about 73 dollars, and that does not include shipping.... Help Please."

Now, just remember that sales change often so after you do your research, you must act fast. Publix sales start Thursday, Winn-Dixie's Wednesday, and CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Albertsons and Target sales start Sunday and last the week.

Since this post is already long enough, it will take forever to post each item and the available sales, so I'm going to ask our readers, our dear readers, to help us find the sales and coupon match ups for these items. We will look for store sales, BOGOs (buy one get one free), store coupons combined with manufacturer coupons, etc. Below you will see some of the online sites you can use for research.

Clarisse, I'll get a few coupons to you to get you started. --Super Saver Kathy

School supply deals comparison chart


Thanks to Stay at Home Mommy for her work on a school supplies comparison chart, telling us about where the best deals on school supplies are this week. What a good idea. I've been wanting to do a post on the great deals we have right now, the best way to save on supplies is to stock up for the year now.

Click here to see her chart. If I had more blogging time at the office (hint, hint) I would make this a local to South Florida chart, as we don't have all the stores she included here, but I hope it is still helpful.

There were four coupon inserts in the paper this weekend, did you see anything great? Sorry I didn't get Coupons in Advance up...somehow 'life' is getting in the way of my moonlighting.

I'm glad to have the $1 Rimmel coupons. My hairdresser told me she likes their mascara...I never would have tried it otherwise. Wait for Walgreens or CVS to have a buy-one-get-one sale on Rimmel make up, and stock up on mascara for next to nothing.

I printed my coupon, but we'll see which voice in my head wins, it's getting to sound like a real argument in there. "Don't go, you don't need cheesecake, Chubby" and "Go ahead, Kathy, how often do you get Cheesecake Factory coupons?" Sort of like the free Starbucks ice cream dilemma.

Free Right Guard deodorant this week at Publix


rightgurad.jpgEvery once in awhile the stars align just right, and we'll get a BOGO coupon when there is a BOGO sale in a store. Guess what this means?!

Oh yes! It means you should get it FREE! This week, Publix has Right Guard Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant, 2.8-oz and 3-oz packages, buy one get one free. And in the Sunday Sun Sentinel 7/25/10 Red Plum coupon insert, there is a BOGO coupon for Right Guard. Publix sales are good through Wednesday.


This is an offer that all serious strategic shoppers are waiting for! Just be expecting that sometimes these offers take your poor cashiers by surprise. I always make sure to buy something else with these free offers, it seems to ruffle less feathers as long as you owe money at checkout. If the store is out of Right Guard, remember to get a rain check.

Speaking of back to school, I had fun getting the kiddies some new clothes with the $10 off $20 Kohls coupon that was on the front of your Sun Sentinel last week. I shopped the 75% off racks, used a 30% off coupon mailed to credit card holders, and I checked out each time my little stash totaled just over $20 before tax.

Save with daily deals from Groupon.com


Have you tried Groupon.com?

It's a great way to save on things to eat, do or buy. There's a new Groupon deal offered each day for Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and cities all across the United States. Here's how it works:

Check out the day's deal. If you like it, click "buy" before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people sign up for the deal, Groupon charges your credit card and sends you a link to print your Groupon. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal. If you do get the deal, there is an expieration date and it doesn't have to be used immediately.

Today's deal is $20 for $40 worth of lingerie at Oh La La Cheri in Miami.

Here's a link to some past Groupon.com deals.

Donate $3 to RIF and get a $10 Macy's Coupon


book-a-bright-future.jpg

It’s fun to shop, but it’s even more fun to shop, save and do good at the same time.
Here’s a great way to help children discover the joys of reading by supporting a wonderful literacy cause while you shop at Macy's.

Macy’s and Reading Is Fundamental have joined forces to support children’s literacy with the Book a Brighter Future program. Now, though July 31, you can can donate $3 to the program at any Macy’s store and receive a coupon for $10 off a purchase of $50 or more (some exclusions apply; store has details). Macy’s will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to RIF.

Reading Is Fundamental provides books and resources to millions of underpriviledged children in the United States. According to RIF.org, the organization was founded in 1966 and is the oldest and largest children's and family nonprofit literacy organization in the United States. "RIF's highest priority is reaching underserved children from birth to age 8. Through community volunteers in every state and U.S. territory, RIF provided 4.4 million children with 15 million new, free books and literacy resources last year," according to the website.

Macy's Book a Brigther Future program has raised more than $13 million, providing more than 2 million free books to kids. For every $3 donated, $1 will support local RIF programs here in our community; $1 goes to RIF's Multiculutral Literacy Campaign and a $1 will go to RIF's ongoing programs, which also includes volunteer program of 450,000 people. The Multicultural Literacy Campaign supports early childhood literacy in African American, Hispanic and American Indian communities.

You can also win a $1,000 Macy's shopping spree by telling three friends about the program. Click here to enter.

Coupons in Advance: Only $12 in coupons this Sunday Memorial Day weekend


caftan.jpgAs per usual on holiday weekends, there will not be a big stash of grocery coupons this weekend, but there's a HUGE stash of store sale flyers instead. Have a look at the weekend papers for flyers for some big Memorial Day sales!

Fellow blogger 'Bargain Hunter Marcia' let the cat out of the bag earlier this week that we are doing a fun girls night out to see the new Sex and the City movie. I vividly remember Char's postings on the blog when the first movie came out, all the rage over Carrie's new NYC apartment.

In Sex & The City 2 the girls head off for the Middle East. We're already seeing the influence in the stores, like this caftan from NY & Co. I don't generally shop trends, but this was on sale from $39.99 to $23.97 and there was a $15 off coupon floating around, so I couldn't resist.

You know how I got the coupon? At checkout the salesgirl asked me if I had any coupons...I said "No, do you have any?" What a great cashier..she's my new best friend.

Can we fantasize that we're having our cosmos in Abu Dhabi, instead of at Muvico?

Added Friday night: (after the fact)

Any excuse for girls night out, the Sex and the city movies are a happening!

sex2.jpg

Randi Marstein and Tammy Brandl were part of a two table party at Muvico Thursday night. About 15 girls and one very brave guy, they came prepared with pink boas. And of course, were drinking the necessary drink for the occasion, Cosmopolitans.

sex4X.jpg

Our group made a special effort to dig out some high heeled shoes: Connie wore vintage from the 1980s, Marcia "Bargain Hunter" found the center beauties on the clearance rack at her favorite store, DSW, and Bobby had fun red pumps.

coupons1.JPGSorry the list is so late, I try to post it at midnight on Thursday, but I had a series of fiascos this week. Long story, won't bore you with it, but the happy ending is that the coupons were hidden under some mail in my kitchen, so since I couldn't find them, I thought I had forgotten them at the office. I don't work Fridays...I'd do almost anything for our readers but drive to Deerfield on my day off.

It was serious deja vu typing out the coupon list this week..lots of old favorites. When you get your new coupons, do they make you think of other deals you got with these same coupons in the past?

The Unilever coupons in the Red Plum this week remind me of a Walgreens sale where you had to buy 8 Ragus to get a really fabulous price with Register Rewards. Remember it? Try finding 8 Ragus in one Walgreens! When I finally did, they were meat flavored. EEEwwww. I have nothing against eating meat, but sitting on a shelf in a jar, no thanks.

And do Starbucks Ice Cream coupons bring back memories? These are generous too folks. $1.50 off Non-coffee flavored Starbucks ice Cream. Wait for a BOGO and use two coupons, that's worth the price of a few Sunday papers alone.

Have a look at the list, click here, and then tell us some of the savings tales you remember. And don't forget to post any current savings you see using these coupons.

Drugstore clinical deodorants: Never let them see you sweat


SecretWaterproof%20image.jpg

Ken Kaye over at the Storm Center says it's going to be hot and steamy through Sunday. So now's a good time to talk about sweat, or more accurately, how not to sweat.

Dry out with clinical strength antiperspirants. Costing about $10 at drugstores, these products promise the same wetness protection as prescription-only versions.

Sun Sentinel beauty testers liked Secret Clinical Strength, Dove Clinical Protection, Degree Clinical Protection for Men and Women. (Click here to sign up to get a free Secret Clinical Strength.)

Here's how they work: These antiperspirants have a higher concentration of metallic salts than regular versions. You apply them at night when your body temp is at its lowest, and while you sleep, they plug up those sweaty pores under your arms.

The International Hyperhidrosis Society, at SweatHelp.org, says many find relief with these products. According to the website: "The key is learning to use them correctly. A recent study found that applying over-the-counter antiperspirants in the morning and evening, or just in the evening, was significantly more effective than applying them in the morning alone." It's also recommended that you apply the products to completely dry skin.

If you find that the drugstore offerings don't do the trick, talk try a prescription-strength antiperspirants, such as Drysol. It contains 20 percent aluminum chloride and costs $21.98 a bottle. It really works.

Remember, the true trick is applying at night before you go to bed. No sweat.

I recently gave organic milk from Organic Valley a shot and just one sip made me a convert. I typically buy run-of-the mill Publix brand 2 percent milk, but the organic milk really did taste better, creamier.

Give it a try and taste for yourself.

Coupons in Advance: Preview Sunday's 5/16/10 coupons


coupons1.JPGLook for one Smart Source in Sunday's paper this week, 5/16/10.

The coupon websites are going to tell you there were Huggies coupons, but we don't have diaper coupons this weekend. This granny is disappointed! But they are out there, so this is when you traders get busy or you can pick up a nice supply for a service charge on eBay.

I smiled as I typed this list, remembering some of the great deals we got in the past with some of these great coupons. For example $1 off Marzetti's dressing. Have you tried their ginger flavor? Its a new fave-flave at our house.

Now I ask you...would you clip a 20 cent coupon? I might if I am buying the item anyway, but would it get you to try a new brand?

A generous $1 off Frito-Lay variety pack, I suspect this might bring some deals. And I'm thrilled to see the $1 off Athenos Feta cheese. Can you freeze feta? I feel some Greek salads coming on.

I bought my daughter some Lean Cuisine individual size pizzas last time there was a sale/coupon combo. She said I didn't get her enough, the kids loved them, and they were small enough that there wasn't any waste. Don't let me confuse you, no Lean Cuisine coupons this week, I only thought of that because there is a generous DiGiorno pizza coupon, got to see if they have individual sizes.

Honeybaked Ham coupons just in time to pamper Mom


2010-mothersday2-hero.jpgDon't forget Mothers Day is Sunday May 9th. If you don't want Mom to spend all day in the kitchen, why not pick up take out from her favorite restaurant. No muss, no fuss.

My mom doesn't like going out when the restaurants are crowded, and I have to work Sunday morning, so I'm not even going to pretend I'm cooking dinner. Its hard to be like Martha Stewart with three toddler boys tearing up the house. My Mothers Day gift to myself will be a Honeybaked Ham take-out dinner.

Click here for a coupon to get the dinner for 6 for $39.99. (These ran in Sunday's paper too, but I'm posting these online just in case you missed them.) There are also coupons for $5 off a Bone-In Half Ham and $3 off a Mini Ham.

Good for Mom, good for you, good for charity


GoodShop%20logo.jpg

Check out the site GoodShop.com. It’s an online mall that partners with more than 1,400 stores (1-800-Flowers, Sephora, Zales, Bloomingdales, etc.) and gives a percentage of each sale to the charity of your choice (or your Mom's favorite organization). Up to 30 percent of each purchase could go to your favorite cause.

Here’s how it works: Go to the site, choose your cause, enter the store you want to shop at, buy an item and the site donates to your cause.

There are 90,000 non-profits signed up to the site so far. According to the site, the ASPCA has earned $32,000 so far and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital has earned $11,800. Here’s a list of donations to organizations.

There are also coupons and deals of the day to make the experience even sweeter if you browse GoodSearch.com. Here’s one coupon I found from 1-800-Flowers, which will give 7 percent back to your favorite charity: 10 percent off your purchase if you use the coupon code GOODSEARCH.

Coupons in Advance: Preview coupons in Sunday's Sun Sentinel 5/2/2010


coupons1.JPGYou will be pleasantly surprised this weekend, with a Smart Source, a Red Plum and a P&GbrandSAVER in Sunday's Sun Sentinel.

I feel 10 pounds coming on....how long has it been since there was a $1 Starbucks Frappucino coupon? Other than the few printables, we haven't had one of those in awhile. Remember when Walgreens had them for $1.25, so with the coupon you got the regularly $1.99 yummy drink for a quarter? Let's hope for another sale like that one.

Lots of Pet food coupons this week too. Oh, listen to this one, $1 off Nestle Drumstick Lil Drums! Are the kids going to love those? Adults too, I'll bet.

I know I told you last week I visited my brother and his wife who are remodeling a house in Chattanooga, what a nice town. Anyway, I bring that up because they are doing an organic rendition of the South Beach diet, and replaced all their butter with Olivio. (Brother Bob has lost 30 pounds on this diet, way to go!) Maybe I'll send them some of this week's .55 off Olivio coupons as a thank you for their hospitality.

Look for sales on Garnier Fructis in the coming weeks and be sure to post what you find, there are generous $1+ coupons for a variety of their hair products.

Red Plum has a $7 off Honeybaked bone-in Half Ham just in time for Mother's Day. Or if you want to really spoil Mom, use the other coupon for a $39.99 Boneless Ham dinner for 6 coupon so she doesn't have to fuss in the kitchen on her special day.

This is a good week for coupons, I recommend figuring out a way to get at least two sets of inserts to take advantage of those BOGO deals. Buy two papers, rummage the recyclers, hit up the neighbors, but get two. Click here to preview the list.

Some of the restaurants participating in Fort Lauderdale are Bistro17, 3030 Ocean, America's Backyard and Trina; in Palm Beach there's Jake's Stonecrab and Tempted Thai and Sushi in Boca Raton and Quaterdeck in Boynton Beach. In all, the site has 15,000 participating restaurants.

(To see how a restaurant rates, click here for the Sun Sentinel's gallery of restaurant reviews.)

At Restaurant.com, if there are restrictions they are clearly listed. Most require that 18 percent be added to the check for tipping and that is applied to the total bill before the gift certificate is applied. Some also require a minimum purchase.

Huggies diaper deal at Target this week


All day everyday I get emails from every couponing website out there. You may call this spam, but I call it savings. Thanks to dealseekingmom for telling us about the following diaper deal at Target.

"Jumbo Packs of Huggies are on sale for $8.99 at Target this week. You'll also get a $5 gift card at checkout when you buy three packages. Combined with the $1.50 coupons in the 4/18 SmartSource, you'll get a great deal on Huggies!"

Sun Sentinel readers, don't waste your time looking for these Huggies coupons on 4/18, we didn't have them, but you can pick them up for a minimal service charge on eBay. Or check your printables stash, there was one for $2 off on coupons.com recently.

Not the best diaper deal I've seen, certainly, but one I found current this week. Since I have three toddler grandchildren, I am all ears for better deals. Please post in the comments below.

Then, a very special week with family celebrating my mother's VERY big birthday. She would kill me if I posted how big...hard to believe she still hides her age after a certain number, but she doesn't announce it...so I won't either.

For those of you new to Register Rewards at Walgreens, they are like cash to spend at Walgreens. Normally, you can spend it on most anything in the store, but if you use it toward more of the same product, you won't get another Register Reward. So when we say rolling Reward, it means you can turn around and buy more Biore with it, and still get another RR.

It's been awhile since a post inspired me to leave work early to jump on a good deal, but Katiria, you posted the Target Monopoly sale, which did just that. Katiria told us that Monopoly was on sale for $7, so if you used the $5 off coupon from last Sunday's paper, you got the game for $2. (Needless to say, that shelf was picked bare, but I gave it the good old college try.) Katiria, email your address to khaines@sunsentinel.com and I'll send you your coupons. Congratulations!

My best savings tip this week is the diaper deal at CVS. Buy Pampers on sale for $8.99 and get $3 in Extra Care Bucks (like cash to spend at CVS.) Combined with the $2 off coupon from the P&Gsaver, the Pampers work out to be less than $4.

Here's a coupon for 30% off of $250 at the Coach factory stores. And 20% off anything less than $250. The factory stores prices are already discounted, so an extra 30% off is a big bonus.

It's tempting, but I have to save for those hurricane windows. How long have you heard me whining about those...how many years now? I'm encouraged by the 'cash for caulkers' rebate, but usually those incentives are for single family homes. Hey Barack, don't forget, some folks live in condos, they pay taxes too!!!

I've been to five Walgreens looking for my favorite Rimmel mascara. This week, it's 50% off, so with the $1 off coupon from the 3/7 Red Plum, the $7.99 mascara becomes $3. I like to stock up, but I guess everyone else does too, so its sold out everywhere. At these prices it's a good time to experiment. Are you due for a new look?

I remember the old days when I used to buy the $30 Estee Lauder mascara at Macy's when there was a free gift with purchase. Free gift, hah! I have a crystal bowl of tested-once lipsticks, all the free ones, purples and oranges that are hideous on me. Wouldn't that be a good theme for a girlfriends party?

Coupon Chaos: Leave your best shopping tips to win free coupons


211_kleenex.jpgIt's Coupon Chaos time again, time to share our best deals! Here's my tip of the week:

This is one of those deals that makes me sorry I don't have a garage! When something gets really cheap, strategic shoppers stock up big time.

Of course when you live in a condo with no storage, there's a fine line between between being thrifty and being a hoarder in need of an intervention. Neesy Nash, where are you?? I need you!!

This week at Walgreens, buy 6 boxes of Kleenex tissue (from $1.99) – on sale buy one, get one free, use 2 $0.50/3 from the 2/28 SmartSource insert, or click here for a printable coupon.

Spend $4.97 plus tax out of pocket, Get $3 Register Rewards. They are $0.33 each after coupons and Register Rewards. Thanks Money Saving Mom for that tip.

Where are you saving this week? --Super Saver Kathy

Coupon: Intergalactic Bead Show - Pompano 3/6-3/7


It's that time again for the Intergalactic Bead Show in Pompano.

Brings back memories of my college days, when everyone else was studying, I was stringing beads to match all the outfits in my closet, also handmade. Yes, and so cute, my sorority sisters wore them as often as I did. How did I make that time? I still marvel that I graduated!

Sat, March 6th - Sun, March 7th 2010
Emma Lou Olson Civic Center
1801 N.E. 6th St.
Pompano Beach, FL 33060

The nice folks at Intergalactic emailed me a $2 OFF coupon for admittance. If you bring two friends you get in free.

I don't know how to post this coupon which is in an email. Email me if you are interested, at khaines@sunsentinel.com, and I'll forward this coupon to you. I probably won't be available over the weekend, so DO IT NOW!!!

I was traumatized by the 12/31 expiration of reams of coupons.....my personal stash mostly untouched by human hands. That Publix Winter Saver book, chock full of great coupons...so many wasted.

I know I'm really out of it when a $5 off $20 CVS coupon expires unspent...tonight. That's a first. With $750 in coupons last weekend, and a whopping $1000 the weekend coming up, it's time to get back to work.

Coupons in Advance: Over $750 in coupons in Sunday's Sun Sentinel 1/3/10


coupons1.JPGAfter a slow holiday coupon month, you will be happy to hear there are two Smart Sources and a Red Plum this weekend, chock full of coupons.

A few generous coupons will make it worth your while to hang out at your local coffee shop recycler, or hit the newsstands for at least one extra paper, so you can take advantage of two coupons when there's a BOGO. Some of our readers get 8 papers on big coupon Sundays. How many papers will you get?

One of our favorites, the $2.50 Electrasol dishwasher detergent coupon is included this weekend. For those of you new to couponing, last year Publix had a buy one get one free sale on Electrasol while a $2.50 off coupon was current. If you bought the small box for $3.99, you got two boxes, used two $2.50 off coupons, and VOILA, free dishwasher detergent! Actually, we made $1 each time we bought two! I'm still thankful to Andrea for that suggestion.

Sometimes we get some great stimulating and controversial conversations going after I post something like this. Let me answer before it gets to that. "Yes, you can use two coupons with a buy one get one free...straight from the Publix coupon policy." Okay, we have that settled. And next...yes, you are taking a chance saving the coupons waiting for that BOGO. They could expire while you are waiting. Kenny Rogers sang about that, like in a poker game "Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em." Okay, now that's settled too. But I hope it's not, lets get a little banter going here. Leave your comments below.

There will also be another $1 off Oikos yogurt, $5 Olay, $1 Tylenol, lots of Lysol coupons and more. I feel some serious strategic shopping coming on. You guys need to jump back on board after a busy holiday month...we need to save to make up for all that shopping. Click here to see the rest of the list.

Or click here for $1 manufacturers printable coupon.

For those of you new to couponing, when an item is going to cost less than the coupon value, its best to have a filler item, so your coupon works. I usually throw in something that doesn't get coupons, like milk or bananas. It's best to plan your filler, it saves you from grabbing that candy while rushed at checkout.

$20 off Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dresses; $100 off bridal gowns


bridesmaid.jpg

March and June are the most popular months for weddings and right about now-- yes, now!-- is the time to place orders on bridesmaid dresses for these special occasions. I should know-- my sister's wedding is at the end of March.

I've done my research and opted to go with Alfred Angelo gowns. They've got dozens of fabulous styles in dozens of beautiful colors.

And imagine my ear to ear smile when we coincidentally found a coupon for $20 off any bridesmaid dress. There's also one for $100 off bridal gowns.

The sale will take place Saturday, Nov. 21 through Sunday, Nov. 29th to promote the company's 2010 collections.

Now, if you've got a wedding over the summer or later in 2010, you may want to check out www.houseofbrides.com. The website offers dresses from various designers that are available at rock-bottom prices. The only drawback is that it takes even longer than the already lengthy wait time on ordering these special dresses.

It may be too late for me, but if you've got time, give it a whirl.

Here's to happily ever after for all!
