    brandiel - never mind, I finally figured it out, LOL. Thanks, again!

    brandiel - I went to the website you gave me for the Red Barron Pizza coupon (, but there were only two coupons there - one for Glade products and the other for Coppertone products. Where would I find the Red Barron Pizza coupon? (It's the first time I've been to that site, so am not very familiar with it.)

    amyrochelle77 - Earlier this week, you mentioned Kroger sent a $2.00 coupon for any Northern bath tissue product - did you mean in the mail? I have a Kroger Rewards card, but don't recall ever getting anything from them like that. (I did find the other $1.00 off coupons you were talking about though!)

    If you belong to, check your e-mail for a great new campaign. They will send a combination of free products and free product coupons for various Kroger back to school snacks if you are invited!

    If you don't already belong to, it's an easy way to sample products and tell all your friends about them. They send free products and coupons to get the bzz going about new items. I have been with them for years and have sampled tons of freebies. And of course, it is all free!

    Did anyone else get the invitation to join this campaign?

    laidy2008 - Welcome back!! I am happy to hear life is stable these days and that you are ready to jump back into couponing fun!

    Thanks to all who offered advice to laidy already. Ddalmas - excellent tips!

    Here is a one stop post for lots of printable coupon site links as well as new e-couponing options like and ibotta that you will want to learn about:

    In addition, I am not sure if you heard the news that Publix grocery store is coming to Cary next year and Kroger is buying Harris Teeter in the next few months. Who knows what changes will occur to Triangle couponing in the future?!

    Laidy2008. To add to the other posts, that is two internet coupon prints per computer. So if you have a desktop and a laptop or your kids have one, that is 4. I would add hotcouponworld to their list also.

    laidy2008 - other great places to get coupons are places like,,,, etc. Also, if you haven't already done so in the past, it's also a great idea to sign up for sites like Kraft, Betty Crocker, Univlever, etc., as they will enable you to print out coupons specific to their company.

    (Don't forget, although they usually won't state this, you can print two copies of almost all coupons you print out online.)

    laidy2008 - Glad to hear things are looking up for you! You already know the best tip, which is to read Faye's blog. :-) Each store offers their current coupon policy on their website, and Faye also notes the grocery stores' coupon policies within each weekly deals post. She also provides links for great printable coupons, as do many others who post in the comments daily. If you are able to attend any of the local coupon swaps (see Faye's Tuesday posts for Upcoming Coupon Swaps), that is also a great way to pick up extra coupons along with savings tips from fellow couponers. If none of the swaps are convenient for you, consider starting another one (perhaps ask at your local library about reserving a meeting room regularly once per month) then let Faye know the details to publicize it. Some folks also have noted they like to order coupons from sites or Happy Savings to you!

    Good Morning! I used to be an active member here during 2011 and the beginning of 2012, life got in the way and couponing fell by the wayside due to all of what was happening. Now that things are much better and my life is more stable I would really like to get back into couponing, at this point I have zero inserts and I am a little lost. I would like to ask if any of you had some tips in how to get back to this, where I can find the most updated coupon policies and the like. Again thank you for any help that you can give me!
