Savings with Style!

Start Saving with Style with Southern Coupon Belle! I'm now COUPONING IN CoMo!
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!

I've searched other blogs and sites but I can't find someone else in my shoes so hopefully reading how I started over can help you! 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!

Are you like me and have all of your memberships on your keys? Eventually, they start splitting or wear off and you are constantly flipping through them at check out to find the right store. And you probably have more memberships or rewards programs that you don't have on your keys so either you don't get credit for your purchase or you're fumbling through cards in your wallet.

If you have an IPhone (not sure about other devices)then your problem is solved with the application, CardBank! It's only .99 cents for the full version and all you do is set up all your loyalty/rewards programs into your phone to manage. The picture is my phone after I sat down tonight to get all my programs into my phone and purge my wallet and key chain.

Also, you can add your hotel, airlines and rental car miles or points programs. The best- I added our Sam's Club and Costco Memberships. Each membership card looks like the picture above for easy scan when you check out. I deleted my number but your membership number will appear under the barcode.

Deal on LED Flashlights at Tractor Supply

If you have a Tractor Supply near you, I found a deal today that I wanted to share. Tractor Supply has a 10 pack of mini LED flashlights for $10 and it includes 30 AAA batteries! Flashlights are about 3.5 inches long and there are 8 black and 2 red ones. I just thought it was a great deal to have them in the drawer, your desk, beside your bed etc. Flashlights have a tendency to disappear in my house- especially when you need one!

You can go to the Tractor Supply website and look at the current ad for your area to make sure you have the same sale also!

Shopping 101: Deals On Skechers Shape Ups

The downside to blogging is going to share with your readers a good deal and then deciding to buy them for yourself! Poor me! :)
Everyone has their resolutions for the New Year and of course- that means there are deals to be had in areas like fitness. I have been curious about the Shape Ups and have watched their prices at the Skecher's Outlet near our house and in the circulars plus online for awhile.

I got a Skechers deal today to share with you when I remembered seeing another blurb about a Shape Ups deal on another website. I'm going to share both but I'm also going to walk you through how I shop. I'm often asked how I shop online and get the great deals and discounts. This is a great time to show you how.

I got an email from Redplum about a 25% code off Reebok and Skechers Toners at using the code: TONE25 good through 1/17 CST. I went to the site and found a pair I thought was a deal- the Shape Up Linear in Hot Pink/Black were $59.99 with free shipping after the code. Regularly $109.00.

I remembered hearing about Shape Ups for $39.99 at I checked out the site, had heard good reviews and put a pair I liked in my cart. They had several different styles at that price. They would be $46.90 shipped saving me over $50.00. BUT before I bought, I went to and searched for codes for Couldn't find anything so I did a wide search for " coupon codes" but didn't find any codes. That's when I decided I was happy with the price, shoes and ready to purchase.

Either deals at either site are great. Here are my tips when shopping online:
1. Keep emails that may pertain to something you are interested in. I wasn't in the market for shoes but had done my research and ready to purchase if I found a price I liked.
2. Never go with the first deal you find unless you are 100% that it's the rock bottom for the time you are making the purchase. Check a couple more sites like Amazon, or other sites relevant to the item you are purchasing just to double check your findings.
3. If the sale, code or need for the item isn't time sensitive then walk away from the website leaving the item in your cart. I've often had companies send me an email with a code for a % off or free shipping if I will come back and complete my order.
4. ALWAYS search for a code and see if it will work. A little more off, free shipping or a shipping upgrade will sweeten a purchase you are going to make anyway.
5. Finally, make sure you have an email folder for your purchases so you can track and follow the shipping procedure. Make sure also you understand the return policy and what it entails before you buy. is a great site and a favorite of mine. Her banner is always running on the right side with the best and most popular online deals going on right now! Always make sure you check her out when shopping online!

Living Smart 101: Being Prepared

Wow! Haven't done one of these posts in awhile. If you are in the South then you are experiencing the mayhem of a major snow/ice storm with me. We've been blown away how fast the snow is coming down and it's unlike anything we've seen growing up here in Atlanta!

Unfortunately, the pretty snow will turn to sleet and ice making this Winter Wonderland a potential nightmare for the next couple of days. Ice increases our chances for power outages and some cold bunkering down at home with no electricity or heat! We were warned with plenty of time about this storm moving in and encouraged to prepare for the worse.

Have you ever heard anyone complain that getting lists and coupons ready just takes too much time? Well, using coupons and having a stockpile actually SAVED me time and gave me plenty of options should the worse happen and we lose power! I had plenty of options for snacks and meals. I had batteries for flashlights and we're stocked on cold medicine, first aid and household products that if we had to ride this storm out a little longer than expected- we could do it easy!

I spent the day baking goodies to enjoy, we made potato and egg salad to go along with the deli and flat bread deals we got this week- we are comfortably set and prepared with plenty of options if we have to get creative.

Planning and preparation to use coupons, the deals and the lists each week may seem timely at first but with practice and consistently- that investment you make will prove worthy and critical for that rainy- oops I mean snowy/icy day!

And yes- we had to endure the grocery stores but already had the critical items so we could wait until they were less hectic and get the few items we needed. You can't live in the South with a snow forecast without getting your milk, bread and eggs! Take care and be safe everyone!
