    mys1983, I don't know how you feel about Pinterest and do-it-yourself, but I found some really good ideas for cupcake stands on there. Wouldn't hurt to look and get some ideas of your own :)

    There is a $2 coupon off Stouffer's satisfying skillets on their facebook page.

    Thanks for posting that info for me before I tried to use one of those coupons again tonight, Faye. For some reason, I always thought you just had to meet the dollar amount required before any other coupons were deducted, so when the cashier said it was actually after, I just wanted to double check.

    My whole point in couponing is not to end up spending anywhere close to $25 after coupons, LOL, so will probably not be using these. I have two remaining - one for this week (expires 8/27/13) and one for next week. If anyone thinks they could use them, just drop me an e-mail at nc.catlover@yahoo.com and you're welcome to them.

    The post below should have been directed to Diane - didn't realize I typed the name wrong.

    DIi- your total needs to meet the requirement of the coupon AFTER all other coupons have been scanned. The cashier was correct.

    Many stores did not have that requirement earlier in the year but most stores now require that if you have a coupon for a total off your total order (like a $5 off $25 coupon) that you have to scan all other coupons first. If you total after other coupons is not at least $25 (using a $5 off $25 coupon, for example) you cannot use the coupon.

    jdouglas, to get the picture next to your username scroll to the top of the page. Click on "My Account" under your username. On the next page click on "Update your information". Under the box for your username is a spot that says "Upload a new avatar". You can then browse and upload any picture off your computer to have next to your username with each post.

    raesmom, I still have the Bic coupon out of the paper. I'm not going to use it as we have pens coming out of our ears already. I was also able to print 2 offline. Send me your address and I can get them out in tomorrow's mail. meredithelizabethmiller@gmail.com
