Sunday Coupon Preview 3/12

Image
.This Sunday there will be a Smart Source and Redplum 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.

*ALWAYS make sure to check your papers for inserts before you purchase!!

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 …

Need Extra Cash - Join me on Saturday, March 19th 11am-1pm For a Gold Party

Image
.
Shortly after Christmas, I did a segment on WAFB all about making money by selling your Gold Jewelry. The inspiration of this news piece came from a party that I had recently attended with Leslie Doyle of The Gold Refinery. I wasn't expecting to get much since I only had a few pieces (see below) but to my surprise I made $285 on what literally fit in the palm of my hand!


Pieces included: High school graduation ring, intial ring, single earring (14K), broken chain and gold band
Because I was so thrilled with the outcome of my own sales, I contacted Leslie to set up a party. This party is open for any of you to attend that would like to make needed cash selling your gold. Here are the details:

Wishbone New Salad Dressings Sneak Peak and Gift Pack Giveaway - Ends 3/24

Image
.
I have a confession to make. I have totally failed at getting fit. I've been talking about it since the beginning of the year but talking hasn't gotten me far. So two weeks ago I decided it is going to happen! I started a running routine and have been eating healthier foods such as whole grains, more veggies and salads for lunch.

Now that said, I get bored with the same old thing really quick! One way I like to switch it up is to use different toppings and dressings on my salads. This is why I was so happy to try the new Wishbone flavors. They are: Bruschetta Italian, Mediterranean, Superfruit Berry and Greek.

My favorite is actually the Mediterranean (with lemon) as a marinade for grilled chicken. The citrus gives chicken an extra "je ne sais quoi"! The Superfruit berry is fantastic with fresh spinach, red onions, grilled chicken and apple slices.

Giveaway (Ends 3/24 at Noon CST) -all giveaway winners are chosen by random generation using Random.org

7 Ways to Save Money on Gas

Image
.
It's no secret that gas prices are well...ridiculous! Unfortunately, like most of you, my family has to get to work, school and run basic errands all the same. Check out these 7 ways to save on Gas!

Thanks so much DealNews for this great info!

1.) Use a STP Gas treatment.
This much-lauded additive cleans your engine and fuel intake system while fighting fuel-line freeze, thus boosting your car’s performance and mileage. You should use it a few times to see full benefits, but you will: at least 10% improved mileage, all while protecting your engine.

2.)Inflate those tires!
Countless studies have shown that cars with properly inflated and balanced tires get better gas mileage — around 3.3%, according to government stats.

3.) Change your oil, and put the right oil in.
This is key for older cars especially, which in many cases will benefit from using 5W-30 motor oil.

4.) Buy low-octane gasoline.
Unless your car specifically requires premium, skip it and go for low-octane fuel.

5.) …
