What happens when a Coupon Expert in one region of the USA moves to another area of the country? I have started over learning new stores, coupon policies and building a reasonable stock pile and savings routine from scratch since October 1, 2011. I was an expert in Atlanta and the South but now happily reside in Columbia, Missouri!

Whether you are a seasoned couponer in a new area OR a beginner- I know I can help walk you through what to do and help you start saving big! Starting over has made me realize how newbies to coupons feel and made me walk a grocery store aisle or two in a beginner's shoes again! Email me at and let me know how I can help! Thanks for reading and taking this journey with me!

More Freebies on the other blog!

Now that school is out- I've had more time to find freebies and deals for the other blog.

Click here and check back daily. Bookmark because summer is here and I'm finding deals for everything under the sun!

Some deals at CVS this week- Stock up on Sunscreen!

Found 3 deals I liked this week:

Huggies Wash 15oz
Sale Price: $2.50 Coupon: 4/19S Final Price: $1.50 or 60% off
Arm & Hammer 2X Liquid Detergent
Note: Coupon is for Essentials if included
Sale Price: $3.00 Coupon: 4/19S (must buy 2) Final Price: $2.50 or 58% off
Hawaiian Tropic Suncare Buy 2 and get $10 ECB Prices start at $7.89
Coupon: 5/03S (hopefully you have 2 coupons) Final Price: $1.89 or 76% off after ECB
Note: Coupon is for 6oz or higher

So, here's how I would work this deal. Do the Suncare and get your $10 ECB. Hopefully, you have previous ECBs that you can apply to this deal and get even cheaper. I have a $5.00 ECB so I can apply that to the suncare deal. I buy the lowest cost X 2 for just under $15, use 2 X $1.00 coupons, get the total to $13.00 or so, use the $5 ECB and spend around $8 plus tax out of pocket. $10 ECB prints on my receipt. Then I buy the Huggies Wash times 4 since I have 4 coupons for $6.00 and 2 detergents for $5.00, use the $10 ECB and pay $1.00 plus tax out of pocket. If this works and I can find a sunscreen that's 6oz or larger for $7.89 then I'm spending just under $10 and getting 2 sunscreens, 2 detergents and 4 Huggies Wash.

That's the best case scenario and I may spend more on the sunscreen to get the spray products since they are much easier to apply and we are going to be living up at the pool this summer. Even so, this is a great deal stocking up on much needed items for the house and the summer.

Deals at Walgreens this week

Here's what I found to be good deals at Walgreens this week:

Listerine Vibrant White Rinse or Mouthwash
Buy 1 get $2.00 RR Coupon and final price is after receiving the RR Limit 1
Sale: $2.99 Coupon: 4/26RP or 3/15S Final Price: .99 or 80% off
Chinet Dinner Plates
Sale Price: $1.50 Coupon: 5/3S Final Price: .50 or 75% off
Ecotrin Medicine 45 count
Buy 1 and get $2.00 RR Coupon at checkout Limit 1 Final Price is after the RR
FREE or 100% off
Bic Soleil or Comfort 3 Razors 4 pack
Buy 1 and get $1.00 RR Coupon at checkout. Limit 1 Final Price is after the RR
Sale Price: $3.99 Coupon: 5/17S1 Final Price: .99 or 80% off

Remember, you can use your RR Coupon on the next deal but if you have a manufacturer coupon and a RR coupon from Walgreens then you need a filler or a second item. You can roll these like you do at CVS but if you have a coupon for the next deal then you will need 3 items. Sounds confusing I know and I'm still trying to figure out the best way to maximize your savings and get things for free or close to it! I'll keep you posted on how to make Walgreens work to your advantage!!

Bottom Line: You need as many items as you have coupons including RRs on each transaction.

Deals at Kroger this week!

Coupon 101: Seasons and Sale Cycles

Whenever I teach a seminar or do a round table- I always get the same question... How do you figure out the 12 week sale cycle? I've talked about it at some and forgotten to at others so I want to explain a trend now that will make it easier to project and plan what's coming up.

Have you noticed the sales and great items we are getting for next to nothing right now? Grilling and cookout items like condiments, hot dogs, paper products etc. This is the time and the prices are incredible when matched with a coupon to stock up for the entire summer! A1 steak sauce this week at just a dime is awesome and I've really stocked up since we use it year round. I checked the expiration date and it's good until like November 2010.

Other seasonal examples:

About mid July- Back to School items like supplies, fruit roll ups, fruit snacks, breakfast items, lunch items etc. go on sale. It runs even more so in August but we start school so early here in Georgia. I can't wait to highlight all the cheap school supplies at the Office Stores this summer!

Every October, the drugstores have great deals and cash back programs on cold and cough medicine. There aren't as many deals once the germ season begins so we always stock up so we are prepared and not running out at 11pm looking for a 24 hour drug or grocery store.

Right before Thanksgiving- baking items, aluminum serving pieces etc. start going on sale so I always stock up because once you get to the week of Thanksgiving- the sales on these items start getting really slim during the rest of the Holiday Season.

The 12 week sales cycle does stay close to the every 12 weeks but during these seasonal times- the deals increase and you definitely want to take advantage of them!

Happy BBQs!

New policies at Publix

Things are changing and it's no big deal- just a different mindset on how to score the great deals at Publix now.

We have a limit now on the items on sale this past week. The limit this week was 6 and it was enforced at 4 area stores near our house. No big deal... we can do multiple shops since we do have so many stores so close. However, I know that this new limit has not been enforced in Cobb County.

My best advice- do what they want, stay under the radar and make sure your coupons don't total over $50 in one visit. If a cashier gives you a hard time- ask for a manager. The cashiers are obviously under the gun to make sure you have as many items as you have coupons. Stay organized, make sure you are legit and you will be fine. It will seem like forever to verify your number of items, your coupons and scanning them all in! It is not as long as it seems and forget about the people behind you. I've said it time and time again- they don't pay your bills and they can wait a couple of minutes for you to save a ton of money!

HOT! Competitor coupons being accepted at Kroger

Just read this- haven't asked my store yet but it appears that Kroger is now accepting competitor's coupons. A store in Athens said it was company wide and if the competitor carries items they do then their coupons will be accepted. I take this that they will do the drugstore deals.

Just ask Customer Service and if they aren't sure- ask to speak with a manager.

Exciting news if it's correct- I'll keep following up and I'll let you know what I officially hear!

80% off through today

Use a Memorial Day code- SPECIAL at checkout and get a $25 gift certificate for $2.00.
Hurry- expires today!

$3.00 coupons off pork at Kroger

I haven't searched yet but the deal sites are buzzing about a Budweiser display near the front of the stores that advertises "Bring on the Summer." On it is a tearpad for $3.00 off pork.
It's for $3.00 off fresh pork, country style ribs, spare ribs, or back ribs purchase. No beer purchase necessary. Dates are good for 5/15-5/31. Good only in AL, AR, GA, KY, MI, MO, NE, NC, TX, UT, and VA.

If you can't find the display- check the regular beer section. And... if you find some- be nice and leave some coupons for others.

Hot Freebie at Kroger

First of all- the Scotch Mini Lint Roller deal won't work. I didn't read the coupon and the ones that are a $1.00 are considered travel size and not included. Sorry!

But, next time you are at Kroger- check the Dial Hand Pump Soap in Aloe. They are 10/$10 and there are $1.00 peelies on several of them. Again, don't rush out to Kroger since it's no guarantee you will find them but it's worth checking out on your next visit!

Deals at CVS this week!

Not too many great deals in my opinion but 2 caught my eye!

Lysol Neutra Air Freshmatic Starter Kit
Sale Price: $5.99 Coupon: 4/5S1 Final Price: $1.99 or 78% off
Right Guard Sport, Xtreme or Dry Idea BOGO
Sale Price: 2/$5 Coupon: 4/19S Get $2 ECB
Final Price after $2 ECB and 2 coupons: .50 or 80% off

How to work this deal:
Buy the Right Guards and get your $2 ECB

Next, buy the Lysol and a filler to get over $2.00 and just pay a few cents for it!
So you pay $3 for the 2 Right Guards, get $2 ECB back and then buy the Lysol Starter Kit for next to nothing.

What are fillers? Just an item to get you over the amount needed to use the ECB. The Lysol is right at $1.99 and if you have a cashier that knows what they are doing- they can shave your ECB back to $1.99 so it will go through. If not- people just buy a pencil, a pack of gum or a single piece of candy to get you to the right amount. No big deal, nothing illegal and the cashiers know what you are doing. And if you have any questions- just ask! They will help you out.

And remember- when doing "multiple" shops- tell the cashier up front what you want to do, ask them for help and if a line forms- take a couple of minutes, go to the back of the line and let the other customers check out. Probably not necessary on this one- it's a quickie but you'll get more help, less resistance when you work with the store and keep things flowing.

Walgreen Deals this week

Here's what I plan to purchase at Walgreens this week:

Skintimate or Edge Shave Gel Buy 1 and get $1 RR at checkout.
Sale Price: .99 Coupon: 4/26S (for Skintimate) OR 5/17S (for Edge)
Final Price (after RR) .24 or 88% off
Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner- BOGO
Sale Price: $1.40 Coupon: 4/26S Final Price: .90 or 68% off

So here's how you make the RR work to your advantage.
Buy the Skintimate Gel and get your $1 RR
Next transaction- buy 1 Lysol toilet bowl cleaner and a filler- let's say a pack of gum.
Use your coupon and RR so you are only paying around .25 or so for both. You need 2 items to be able to use the coupon and RR.
Next- buy the Edge Gel if you have that coupon and get your $1 RR
Finally- repeat the Lysol deal and another filler if you have another coupon for the Lysol.

Remember- I'm learning this new system too but this is the scenario I'm going to try this week. I haven't done it yet so if I understand the new system- this would work and you would get 2 shave gels, 2 toilet bowl cleaners and 2 fillers for under $3.00.

I'll get Mike to do the deal tomorrow on his way home from work and I'll post how it goes.

Deals at Walmart this week!

Did you know you can save even more money at Walmart using coupons? Here's what I found to be great deals at Walmart this week. Remember- Walmart doesn't double and the prices may vary slightly from the Coupon Mom list. Walmart can also be a tricky list so be prepared that the deals listed aren't there or available. I just don't make a "special trip" to get these deals- I just pop in when I'm out.

Sale Price: $1.96 Coupon: 5/3S Final Price: .46 or 77% off
Bar S Franks 12 oz.
Sale Price: .86 Coupon: 5/10RP Final Price: .36 or 58% off

Host a House Party and get great stuff!

Go to and register then see if you can qualify for one of the upcoming events.
One coming up is a $75 in free Domino's pizza for your party on June 20th.

When you sign up, make sure you tell them how much you like to host your friends and have parties, you like to tell people about new products you've tried and how everyone considers you to be the expert on new things and products.

I've held one party and got over $300 in free items for a Key West party. There are also neat parties for your kids, mom play groups and you can even preview a pilot for a new show. Last year, there was a Lipstick Jungle Preview Party where Maybelline sent VIP bags full of makeup for all your guests.

Free Refill Coupon when you purchase a Windex Outdoor All in One

Clink here to sign up and print a coupon for a free refill pack when you purchase the Windex Outdoor All In One kit.

And, if you go to the 5/10S insert- there's a $3.00 off coupon for the Starter Kit!

Clearance Flowers and Plants at Lowes

If you are driving around and near a Lowes- stop by and check to see if there is a clearance section in the garden area. They will mark plants down and flats to next to nothing because they have bloomed, the weather affected them or they just need more space for new arrivals. With a little TLC you can nurse these plants back to help really just by getting them in the ground.

Last year we bought several flats of flowers that turned out just gorgeous! Just another way to save money so check it out! If you can't find them- just ask a sales associate!

Q&A- using downloadable coupons and paper coupons

Here's a great question from DeAnn- thanks so much for commenting and asking!

Q: Hi! I'm new here and not really sure where to post my question. If you have UPromise ecoupons loaded and you have paper coupons or other ecoupons for immediate savings on an item, do you get both the Upromise and the traditional savings at the same time? Thank You for your help, and I'm loving your advice!

Yes!! As of right now, they are allowing you to use both. I've had a little trouble with the downloadable coupons but I contacted the companies and they credited me the coupon value on my Kroger card.

And always remember to put on your to do list to download the refreshed coupons on the 1st of each month!

Thanks for the question and everyone- feel free to email me or comment with any questions you have. No question is too easy or simple. Everyone has to start somewhere and I want to help you get started! And you never know how many readers can benefit from your question and the answer.

Coupon 101: New Source for Coupons

Hey! Have you noticed during commercials lately that at the end, there are links to the product's website for coupons? Start paying attention and I'm noticing more and more each day.

I've said it before that another way is to call companies and tell them how much you love their products or how much you want to try their products. Ask for coupons!

Never hurts to ask and if there are products you love then getting on their mailing lists is always a great thing!

20% off Photo Gifts and Posters at Walgreens

Use code: GRAD online and offer is good until May 16th. One code for one item.

Great idea for your favorite graduate or get ready for Father's Day!

New Policies at Walgreens concerning Register Rewards

As you know by now, Walgreens has suspended their Easy Saver Rebate Program. There appears to be an increase in their Register Rewards but after speaking with a manager- they are not going to be treated just like cash like ECBs at CVS.

What we encountered was if you have a Register Reward and want to use it to buy an item that you have a coupon for- the system treats the RR as a coupon and you have more coupons than you have items.

For example, say you had a $2 RR and wanted to buy toothpaste that was on sale for $3.99 plus use a coupon for $1.00 off. System won't let you use both. But you can add to your purchase a cheap item like a pencil, a pack of gum... called a filler. It should let the transaction go through.

It worked for us but I'll keep posting as this new system is coming together at Walgreens.

Free Meal for Mom this Sunday at Williamson Brothers BBQ

We ate at the Canton location tonight and they are giving all moms a free steak dinner with the purchase of a platter and 2 drinks this Sunday! Williamson is on of the top BBQ restaurants in Atlanta.

They have 3 locations so if you aren't near the Canton location- call the others and make sure the free dinner is being offered at all locations.

Happy Mother's Day!

Possible Deal at Walmart

Just got a tip that a 2 pack of Oil of Olay soap is $1.97 at Walmart and in the 4/5 Proctor and Gamble insert- there is a $2.00 coupon. Haven't done the deal myself but might be worth checking out if you are headed to Walmart.

Be considerate, don't go crazy and be prepared for the cashiers to question the deal especially if you do more than one coupon. Still worth checking out!!

Thanks DD for the tip!

Exciting News!!

11Alive is doing another dedicated newscast to Ways To Save this coming Friday. They did one this past Wednesday and did a 1 hour live chat with a panel of experts on different ways to save money and it was a HUGE hit! They had over 200 participants chat for an hour.

Well... guess who was asked tonight to join the panel of experts this Friday??? Drumroll please.... Me! I am so excited and can't wait to share my advice and savings tips with their viewers.

You can check out the special at from this past week. 11Alive has always been my favorite news team in Atlanta for NBC and Valerie Hoff has done a wonderful job teaching the viewers how to change their shopping methods and how to really save money.

Be sure to check it out and please ask questions this week by emailing me at Help me practice so I'm ready to help as many people as I can on Friday night!!

And again- I thank everyone that is reading the blog each day. Your support has helped me put my name on the map and give SCB the platform to help people which I believe is a life purpose for me.

Readership is setting records everyday and from all over the country...even the world! It's hard to believe that just this past October- I was at Burt's Pumpkin Farm watching my girls and their cousins running around- I looked at Mike and said "I'm going to start a blog. What should I name it?" After a couple of ideas- I liked Southern Coupon Belle and I was off and running. Now thousands of readers later- WOW. Thank you so very much!
