    If you are in need of Jockey women's brief panties, go to Belk at Crabtree. They have a display behind a mirrored post in the panty section that has 3-pack Jockey brand briefs for $2.39. Just sizes 6 and 7, there were quite a few left.

    ascherer - that is probably what is driving your goal up. As Dr D posted when you make your goal many days in a row, they raise it. Mine first goal is 80 right now as well.

    lindabates - like Dr D, I pull my coupons and prep my list at home before heading to the store. But I take my binder with me for unadvertised deals. When my kids were little, it was more challenging because one was always sitting in the kid seat where my binder fits so nicely. But I would just put the binder in the big part of the cart and pull coupons as needed from it. For my bigger coupon shops, I tried to wait until someone else could watch the kids so I could shop kid-free. Usually it was my mom when they were very little. If you have another friend with kids, you can each trade grocery store babysitting for each other so you can shop without "help" from the kiddos when you are doing a big shop. As we all know, it's more peaceful that way and you will probably save more money than if they are with you. :-)

    Dr. D. That does explain things. I have been lucky with the surveys lately and keep blowing away my "total" daily goal. Either I can't meet my daily goal or I go overboard with points.

    Needing some help, I currently use an accordian style coupon holder, I have a binder too. I have 2 small kids who go with me to the store and it's just been easier on me to use the accordion holder... can anybody give me tips, I'd love to get back to my binder but it's super hard with 2 kiddos

    LINDABATES, in answer to your question in yesterday's Share the Deals thread, when I have a toddler with me while shopping, I review my shopping list right before I shop, and pull out the Qs I'm expecting to use for that trip, then also put my binder into the cart (just in case). HTH!

    ASCHERER - typically the more often you meet your daily SB goal, the higher the daily goals become. When I don't have time or access to SB for a few days, my first goal always drops back down to 30.

  • ascherer Jun 3, 2016

    Is SB making everyone have stupid high limits this week? My first goal has been 80 each day. Is it just me or is that high for a daily goal? I'm sorry if this is a repeat question. I have not been able to follow Faye's blogs daily lately.
