Plenty to Read

One more great thing about couponing has been the information that I've gotten from the coupon blogs. I love magazines and all the magazines that you see here were given to me free. I'm not talking about a sample issue either, but 1-3 year free subscriptions.

The coupon blogs will usually give you the link or information on how to get yours. Sometimes you have to answer a quick survey or something similar but that's it! You don't have to give a credit card number or anything other than you name and address. It's that simple and it does work, as you can see.

Some of the magazines that we get are Shape, Martha Stewart Living, Dog Fancy, Popular Science, Body & Soul, Women's Day, Town & Country, Fast Company, Marie Claire, Fitness, and a few more that I'm sure I'm forgetting about. There is nothing like free entertainment, plus a lot of the magazines have coupons in them too.

So keep your eye out while you scan the coupon blogs for free subscriptions.

Great Day of Savings!

Today has been a great day to save money! It started with the Redbox movies. If you "liked" Redbox yesterday on Facebook, you got a code to be used today for a free movie rental. Well of course I did that.

On my lunch hour I stopped by the Redbox located outside CVS. While I was scoring my free movie rental, the Redbox lady came up and gave me a coupon for another free rental. YES!

After I left Redbox, I went over to Staples to continue my savings streak. Check out what I got!

You see 4 boxes of Glad sandwich bags, 2 hand sanitizing spray pens, 300 Dixie paper plates, 1 Swiffer duster kit (wand and 5 refills), 2 Swiffer refill boxes (32 dry cloths total).

My total before any coupons was $31.20. I had a coupon printed from the internet for $5.00 off purchase of $25.00 or more so I used that and my Staples Reward bucks earned from January and after tax recalculation, I only paid $6.59 out of pocket!!!!!

That's a lot of stuff for $6.59, plus 2 free movies to boot.

Sorry that I've been missing in action

I apologize for not writing much lately. I do have more article ideas, but the past few weeks have been rough and I just haven't gotten around to writing. I'm sure you can relate that sometimes life just gets in the way of the fun stuff we would rather be doing.

I plan on getting some writing done this weekend, so maybe I can get back on track.

How has everyone been? I would love to hear from you about how you're doing and what you're doing to save money.

Have a great evening,

More Free Cokes!

When I got home today there were 3 more coupons in the mailbox for free Coke 12 packs.

I got these by cashing in some of my Coke reward points. You can also get tons of other items besides the free 12 packs. I feel like the free 12 pack coupons are the gift that keeps on giving. I get the 12 packs for free with the coupons, which of course have more Coke reward points on them that I save up for more free coupons!

I've written before in detail about the program if you want to check the earlier article out or go to for more information.

Gotta love free!
