What a great giveaway! Thanks for hosting it.

Gale said...

Thanks for the cool giveaway! I'm a big coupon user.

I love the dollar section at Target. I stock up there for party giveaways, stationary stuff, and stocking stuffers. (I've loved everything I've got there--it's actually pretty good quality--except for lip gloss. Avoid the dollar section lip-gloss. Tastes nasty!)


(Hope I didn't accidently post this twice...had a little trouble posting)

Heidi said...

I always wait to make my grocery list until after the ad comes in the mail, then I stock up on things that are on sale.

Ames said...

MMM - I love ALDI and shopping clearance at Target - that's usually quite profitable!

Smilingsal said...

I shop online at Wal mart and then pick up the purchase at my local store after it's shipped FREE. I just picked up my new telephone yesterday, and a few months back bought a toaster this way.

Well I would love to save money at the natural food store I go to but that isn't likely so I will say Target. I dunno if you can help me much with coupons I need organic coupons. But if not I will just give them to my MIL who does not live green.

paula h said...

I can always use coupons! i like to combine hem with the loss leaders at different stores.

I shop Walmart-not much choice where I live. I use coupons and especially watch for markdowns and clearance and use coupons for those items.

Gotta love my Target. They have great clearance and when the dollar spot goes 1/2 price, oh, baby, come to Momma!

redfantum said...

Winn Dixie is close so I save on gas and I use coupons A LOT! Plus the Easy Saver rebates at Walgreens. I usually pay only half of retail for my food and supplies.

Marlena said...

I'm just starting to learn the game of coupon shopping! I love to shop at Target and hit up their red tags along with coupons. I'd love to learn the ins and outs of CVS as I hear there is a way to get a ton of free stuff there!

I love Walgreens and Target because you can use sales, store coupons and manu Qs. It's win/win/win.

Lady_MSnow said...

This would be awesome! Great giveaway. :D

I love coupons. I also belong to a coupon train so if the coupons don't benefit me, they may benefit six of the other ladies on the train.

I save money at TJ MAxx by shopping the clearance aisles and making my own gourmet food gift baskets from items there!

Amber said...

I love saving money at Walgreens. They have those monthly Easy Saver Catalogs that list all their rebates (plus you can use coupons on the products!).

At the end of the month, you send in the rebate form and your receipts and they send you money back. The best part is this: if you opt to get your rebate money on a Walgreen's gift card instead of a check, they'll give you a 10% bonus!

Sarah said...

My favorite place to save money is Hobby Lobby! They have GREAT sales, many times with items being 50% off and then I also get a coupon regularly through email to save 40% off one non sale item! I have to drive 45 minutes to the nearest store but I LOVE it :)

Great giveaway!!

Amy said...

Thank you! I usually buy my groceries at Kroger and have found I can save a lot of money by using my Kroger Plus card to receive discounts on their items.

I also love Wal-mart! I buy most of my toiletries there.

Angie(quillysilly) said...

My favorite grocery store is HEB, with Kroger as a second. The Dollar Tree ROCKS for non food items!!Thanks!

Michelle said...

I clip coupons all the time and would love to win a big bag of them!

Tammy said...

Get out! I love coupons. I live in a small city so the coupons in our Sunday paper to put it mildly "suck" -- so this would be great to beef up my supply!

Kimberly @ AllAboutKimberly said...

My favorite way to save is Kroger. They will double and triple my coupons and ours now has a gas pump where after purchasing $100 dollars worth of groceries, I get .10 off per gallon of gas!!

I buy a lot of foodstuffs in the back of Ross - coffee, tea, balsamic vinegar, olive oil. They carry gourmet items at dirt cheap prices. You have to watch expiration dates, though.

I use CVS and wait for things to go on sale and use coupons on them to make the deal even better! Most people have heard of that though. I also like dollar stores and consignment stores.

I love coupons! I moved a while back and let my coupon supplies dwindle and now when I go shopping I'm all the time paranoid thinking that I probably could have had a coupon for this, or that. Thanks for the very cool giveaway!
