Stock up Prices
I've been asked a lot lately when to know an item is a good "stock" up price. While there is no "price" rule and sometimes you just need to get an item when you need it, I do have some guidelines for myself that I use to know a good "stock up" price!

Here are some examples:

Diapers $0.19 each

Shampoo- $0.50 or less. Don't pay more than $1.00

Tooth paste and brushes: free

Deodorant: free

Body Wash: free

Lotion: free

Wipes: $1 or less for box

Cleaning supplies: free-$0.75

Toilet paper: $0.25/roll. Never pay more than $0.50 per double roll

Paper towels: $0.75 per large roll

Candles (like Glade): less than $1.00

Laundry detergent: $3.00 or less (around 32 loads)

Dish liquid detergent: FREE

Meat: $2/lb ground, $4/lb Steaks (high quality)

Potatoes: $3/10 lb bag

Soda: $2.50/12 pk

Cereal: $1 per box

Canned veggies: $0.35

I would love to add to this list. Leave an item(s) that you would like to know the stock up price for and I will answ…

Sunday Coupon Preview July 10th

Image
.
This Sunday there will be a Smartsource and Redplum insert in the newspaper. Check out Sunday Coupon 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!!

After speaking to a representative for The Times Picayune, I've learned that most of the insert coupons are now going to people who have home delivery on their Sunday Papers. This may be why many of you aren't finding coupons in the papers available for sale in our area.

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

First of all, I would like to note that in my weekly Sunday Coupon Preview, I list the inserts that are available nationally. While I realize that both The Advocate and The Times-Picayune will/may not have all of the available inserts in them, I want to give you information about what's out there.

With that said, here are some quest…

Extreme Couponing 101 The Series: Organizing Your Coupons

Image
.
Now that you know where to find coupons, lets discuss how to organize them. Gone are the days of clipping your coupons, stuffing them into whatever you have on hand, and trying to remember to bring them to the store. Here are two methods that I use to organize and file my coupons so that I NEVER miss out on a deal!


Who wants to spend their whole Sunday clipping coupons from the newspaper?

Filing your coupon inserts in an accordion file folder will save you a ton of time and frustration. First, remove all of your inserts from the Sunday paper. Next, label each slot either by date of the paper you found it in (example 01/03) or by type of insert:

P&G - for Proctor & Gamble
RP- for RedPlum
SS- for SmartSource
GM- for General Mills
**You can also make a spot for printable coupons and rebate forms

Now simply file your inserts in the correct slot and forget about them until you need to use your coupons. You will notice that in my weekly advertisements I list coupons like this: 01/03 SS…

Coupon Changes to Come: Coupon DataBar Replaces The UPC

Image
.
You might start seeing a little bit of a difference in your coupons because many coupons are now adopting the new GS1 DataBar Coupon Format. 

You might be wondering why the change is happening.

Here’s the answer:

The DataBar accommodates longer manufacturer identification numbers (MINs), addressing a major deficiency in the UPC code. Manufacturers will have the opportunity to develop more robust coupon offers, including values in any amount, as well as cross-promotions with one or two other brands.

Retailers that scan the DataBar will experience automatic expiration date checking, a reduced need for 992 bypass codes that don’t require product validation, reduced cashier intervention, improved scan rates and increased speed of checkout.

The DataBar also contains fewer human-readable elements — only the company prefix and the offer code — helping to reduce fraud and mis-redemption.

Extreme Couponing 101 The Series: Where to Find Coupons

Where to Find Coupons
It seems that everywhere you look you can find a coupon. But there are a few ways to find coupons, out of the ordinary.

Here are my favorite ways which will help you save even more:

1. Newspaper-

This is a little obvious, but with all the printable coupons available, it can be a little easy to overlook. *If you are a savvy couponer then you will be purchasing more than one of your paper. You can actually preview what coupons will be in the paper by clicking here, then you can buy more papers while you are out. *Keep in mind there are rarely inserts on holiday weekends.

For extras (for free) check libraries, restaurants and fast food places, doctor’s offices, your next door neighbor, some newspaper offices have places for leftover ads, post offices (same thing), recycle places.

**Many people want to know how people get four coupons or more from the weekly inserts. Here are ways to make that happen:

Buy multiple newspapers: This is perhaps the easiest one, though …

FREE Haircuts for Back-To-School at Remington College Starting July 25th

Image
.

I brought my kids to this event last year and they did a really good job! There are plenty of instructors watching over the students, who are all very experienced by the time they get to the point of cutting customers hair.

Remington College-Baton Rouge Campus is again offering complimentary back-to-school haircuts for children this summer. The event is called Cuts for Kids and will begin Monday, July 25 and run for two weeks.

Last year, Remington College provided a total 3,312 haircuts across the country through its Cuts for Kids program.

Parents can bring in children ages 17 and under for a complimentary haircut provided by instructors and students in the Remington College-Baton Rouge Campus cosmetology program.

"Back to school expenses can really add up, especially during these tough economic times," said Mike Smith, Remington College-Baton Rouge Campus President. "Cuts for Kids is a way for us to help parents save some money and help kids look and feel their best w…
