    I bought the re-usable ones that said as seen on tv. I think I got them at Hamricks but I've seen them lots of places. We used them for 5 days while visiting our daughter. I don't know how long they'll last.

    I went to HT tonight to purchase the Smithfield ham steak with the $2 coupons. Much to my surprise the coupon doubled to $4 rather than increasing to the purchase price of $2.99. I had a $1.97 overage so I had to purchase more items!!

    jdouglas - thanks, so much, for the offer but I was able to find the Purex coupon in the inserts from this weekend, as you suggested. It's such a great deal ($1.00/1 doubled, makes the price just $0.97!) that I'm going to try to see if I can find any stores who might have leftover Sunday papers tomorrow so I can buy one to snag a second coupon.

    And one of these days, I will remember to read through everyone's post before I just start typing and blabbing away! ;)

    hadiyahr, no if the Purex was not listed in your weekend evic email, you are not eligible for it. Usually they have a Saturday special and a Sunday special that they offer to all the evic subscribers, but then they "personalize" the rest of the items. Sometimes it is based on your past purchases, sometimes it is completely random.

    msgooch, I was at Bed Bath & Beyond over the weekend and out of the corner of my eye noticed they had a big clearance table of K-cups. I didn't look at it too closely since we don't have a Keurig, but if you can stack your B2G2 coupon with the clearance price and a 20% BBB coupon, you might end up with a very good deal. If you are close to a BBB, it might be worth investigating or even give them a phone call to get the details.

    Went to Rite-Aid today and thought for sure I had earned my $20.00 up+rewards for spending $100.00 but my total was $99.82 I was $.18 short!! so therefore my $20.00 up+rewards did not print out, what a disappointment Rite Aid must make you spend the total amount, cvs gives me a coupon if im close to the amount,guess i have to find something for $.18 just so i can get my $20.00 up+reward, looks like they could have let me slide being that close, what a bummer!!

    @hadiyahr: Any money you save is awesome! It's easy to fall into the trap of comparing what you save with others, but try not to :) remember each person has different amounts of time they can dedicate to couponing and their tastes in products are different. The great thing is that you are SAVING money; you are off to a GREAT start! Like someone else said, I would highly recommend Faye's workshop! She is awesome and her class is very beneficial! All of us on this blog (except for the occasional person lol) love her and are sooo thankful for all her hard work and all the money she, and other bloggers, save us! don't be afraid to ask questions! I know I can talk for everyone on this blog when I say that we welkom questions!

    My newspaper is running out and I only get it for coupons on Sundays. The rate on the renewal is $120/yr. Does anyone know of a deal for me? Thanks!
