Apply Now to Host Your Own House Party


I've talked about House Party before. If you aren't familiar, here's the 411...

House Party is a new way of marketing products in a fun way for you and your friends/family. All you have to do is go to and select a party you are interested in hosting from the available parties that are excepting applications. You will have to fill out a survey (answer honestly) and if you are chosen to host, House Party will let you know then send you a party pack. You can also add your email for House Party to alert you to new parties as they become available.

You do not need to sell anything at your party, just have fun with your guests using the featured item. House Party will supply you with enough of the featured item to satisfy your guests and also include, as I like to call them, "swag bags" for your guests to take home.

I have hosted two House Parties so far and attended many more at my friends' houses and had a blast every time!!

Sunday Coupon Preview August 14th

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…
