    "kcastleberry-My mom just got me a 2 qt Crock Pot from Target for $12. You might want to check there to see if the larger ones are just as good a deal."

    CVS had their Crockpot (brand name) on half off as part of Christmas Clearance, they were 5 qt size, round, for $15.

    Well played, bloomhappy! Have fun playing Quidditch!

    Thanks for the 40% off coupon tip for Michael's, Faye. They say, "one coupon per item per day".... so my husband will be there every day at lunch for 6 days! Hogwarts robes, here we come!

    Linda, P&G inserts are only good for a month usually, so only keep those until the coupons expire the next month.

    The RP and SS coupons vary. I cut out and file in my binder the ones I know we will use, the ones I think we will use and the ones that I am pretty sure I will use for a donation item. Then I file the rest by date in folders and keep them for about 6 - 8 weeks. Then I donate the coupons to the US military base overseas that our religious organization sends them to. If you want to send your expired and in-date coupons to our US military overseas, check out more info on: http://coupsfortroops.com.

    FYI the FL beef rebate coupon is represented by a bottle of beer on the website so look for the beer bottle to find the rebate! I also used zip code 27520.

    Faye, with the new year I am trying to get my coupons more organized. I sort mine in the accordion file. How long do you suggest that we keep our PG, RP & SS inserts? I don't know exactly when to throw them out.

    Dstned2Bme-I'll try to find it again.thanks

    Nakabi, the FL $5 beef rebate coupon is still available. I just printed it.

    bloomhappy - I don't know what sizes or colors they have, but you may want to try Michael's and use 40% off coupons. I have seen t-shirts there before for craft projects and they are usually pretty cheap. The black robe idea is so cute! I have also seen cheap t-shirts at Walgreens although not sure of the colors and sizes.
