Sunday Coupon Preview

.This Sunday there will be a Smartsource insert in the newspaper. Check out Taylor Town Preview for a list of what coupons that you can expect. Please note that these may vary by region.

*The most asked questions that I get are about local newspaper inserts so here are a few answers:

How many papers should buy?

I personally buy 4-6 every Sunday depending on the amount/quality of coupons. This allows me to stock up on items that I find FREE or at rock bottom. If you can't afford to buy more than one newspaper, ask your friends/family/neighbors if you can have theirs.

Does The Advocate or Times Picayune have the best coupons?

There's no easy answer here. The Times Picayune generally has more coupons and it sometimes has the Redplum inserts that The Advocate does not contain (the RedPlum insert comes in the mail with the weekly store ads in the Baton Rouge area).

However, The Advocate does have the sought after P&G insert where as The Times Picayune do…

This Giveaway has ended: Seventh Generation Back-to-School Kit Giveaway - Ends 9/2

.I use lots of Seventh Generation products from cleaners to training pants for my 2 year old, so when I was asked to do this giveaway, I got really excited. I love giving away my favorite things.

Seventh Generation knows that kids pick up more than ABC's in school and wants to help keep them germ free with their disinfecting products.

With nearly 22 million school days lost each year due to the common cold and flu (CDC) and as many as 2.7 million bacterial found per square inch on common school surfaces (NSF International), it´s no wonder that 82 percent of parents with kids in grades K-5 fret about the germs in their children´s classrooms (according to a survey conducted by Seventh Generation).

Here are some tips from best-selling author and pediatrician, Dr. Alan Greene, to help parents protect their child´s health during back-to-school season.

Optimize the immune system

* Reap the benefits of probiotics like those found in yogurt. A recent study showed that children who received en…
