Found a deal? Here's the place to share it!

So, I was thinking: if Hurricane Irene really does come our way, at least we will all be well-stocked on groceries! Yet another fabulous benefit of couponing - a solid emergency stockpile.

    Thanks Nancy. I will try them. I got the Oikos free coupon emailed to me from Dannon and would love to use it.

    leeandkaren, I believe Food Lion will. It could depend on the individual store mgr though.

    Is there any store that will take a free IP coupon?

    "like taped to the back of one of your children." - marybeth

    ROFLMAO! Oh my but I burst out laughing when I read that!

    Dang Dstnd - what a steal on eggs! I planned on hitting HT tomorrow and now I'll be checking out the eggs in case :)

    Totalchaos and I found such a deal on OM maple bacon once and scooped them up - and now I can NEVER walk by the bacon without looking LOL.

    Good thing the eggs and bacon are near each other, I'll be constantly checking both now!

    Thankfully for us, it looks like the storm is tracking further east with each update - whew!

    After the earthquake and watching Irene and what she's up to, I was just waiting to hear the locusts land (cue the Twilight Zone music ...)

    Marybeth - that is hysterical!! I have some good packing tape and a strong tween so my binder is safe! :-)

    GREAT deal on the eggs, Dstned!! Such a perfect example of those fabulous unadvertised deals we find all the time.

    Nancy - your falling down comment was too funny! You all have me laughing out loud today!

    Just got emailed a coupon from Staples, thought I'd share.$B7SHGCB8c7c3Nj3SAHG1/coupon.html?n=256

    $5 off a $25 purchase, read the Q for the fine print, good through Saturday.

    LOL)))))) Marybeth!!

    I stopped in at HT in H.S. on my way more try for the nuts and velveeta dinners...(no luck) BUT I did find a managers special on Eggland eggs 18 count carton for $1.50 and just happen to have those coupons for .35 making each carton .80!! Pretty good for those cartons!! Eggs for breakfast, breakfast for dinner, breakfast casseroles, deviled eggs, egg salad...hmmmmmm

    So glad I found y'all and learned about a binder and carry it with me to every store for these surprise deals!!

    Hurricane Preparedness ... Step 1: Cover your coupon binder in a strong protective plastic. Step 2: Be sure to store it in a location where you can grab it quickly in the case of evacuation -- like taped to the back of one of your children.

    katie - those things are GREAT - as well as the Purex Crystals, same thing. Purex crystals came out with a bang, lots of coupons/deals and nothing since, but I'm still using them and love them! They truly work!
