buying coupons

sometimes there may be a coupon that you really love, for a product your family uses on a regular basis. it may be worth it to "buy" 20 coupons for a dollar or so to save you much more than that.

here is a service i like. it's lori has 3 kids and shipping is fast and FREE! i found lori through ebay, which also has lots of coupons, but the free shipping is great. you use your paypal account for payment.
as an example, right now lori has 20 50¢/1 daisy brand sour cream coupons for $1. harris teeter will put these on sale for $1 and double the 50¢ coupon. so for $1 you could get 20 containers of sour cream!

*pay attention to the expiration dates for the coupons to make sure you have time to use them.*

josh's produce YIPPEE!

look what i got at josh's farmer's market today! for $21.68...and that does not include the fabulous conversation about babies and baseball :)

there was a lot of local produce and it was beautiful!

josh has made a space at his produce stand for a salty-sailor type guy who brings "radically" fresh seafood every saturday straight from the coast. his name is landon wilder and you can sign up for his newsletter at the shrimp connection. he will send emails about what he will be bringing and prices too, i think!

josh's farmer's market is located at 189 williamson road, mooresville, nc

here's a list of coupons to look for this weekend. sometimes they vary a little, but here's a general idea. from jenny at southern savers.

kraft coupons

tip from mercedes at common sense with money on kraft coupons.

old el paso deal at harris teeter until 5/17

at harris teeter...
buy 6 packages old el paso taco shells, dinner kits, seasoning, refried beans or heat and serve side dishes. get a catalina (printout) good for $3 off your next beef or chicken purchase.

seasoning mixes are on sale bogo or 54¢ each. buy 6, pay $3.24 and get coupon for $3.00 off chicken or beef.

don't know how long the old el paso sale is, at least 5/12 though.

kraft mac and cheese deal starts 5/8 at HT

Buy Kraft Macaroni and Cheese between 5/8-5/31

Buy 4 Get $1
Buy 5 Get $1.50
Buy 6 or More get $2 OYNO (on your next order)

mac and cheese is on sale BOGO this week at harris teeter. so buy 6 boxes for 3.24 and get a catalina (this is the printout things they give when you checkout) good for $2 off your next shopping trip! that makes the mac and cheese 21¢ a box.

update: target chicken deal 5/7/09

went to target (mooresville, nc) today.
family pack chicken on sale 8.24$
use gold and plump coupons and target coupon (you can use both on the same item!) for 2.50$ off!
this chicken pack is 2.38 lbs so it ends up being 2.41$/lb. not too bad! this is really great chicken too, we love it.
* you may have to join the above sites to print coupons.*
also the whole chickens were on sale for $3.99.
use the gold and plump coupon for 1$ off AND the target coupon for 1$ off to get a 3.5 lb chicken for $1.99! these are great for baking. we have a rotisserie on our grill and they are yummy that way too.
