Couponing 101

Image

~~If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.  I’m not going to regurgitate everything that is already on these sites.  It’d be a waste of your reading energy and my fingers 🙂  Know that with a little thought, you can make a HUGE impact on your family’s food/misc. budget.  The best way to get FREE items is to match up a manufacturer’s (good for any store and will say “manufacturer’s coupon on the top) coupon with a store (it will have the name of the store on the top of the coupon) coupon.  At the very end of this post, I will put down this week (April 20, 2014-April 26, 2014) of all the COMPLETELY free items that I could get from various stores.  I complied this list from a combination of sites that I listed below.  I just want to give people an idea that you do not have get an item, just because you have a coupon.  You need to wait until it is on sale at the store and use it in tandem with a manufacturer’s coupon and possibly an additional store brand coupon (ie you buy 16 ozs. of peanuts at Kroger that are on sale for $2.99.  You have a manufacturer’s coupon for $1.50 off and then you have a Kroger coupon for $1.00.  You would be spending $0.49 for a 16 oz. jar of peanuts.)  What you do not use or want, but can still get free…get it and then donate it to a local Needline, church, nursing home, a local family, school resources centers.  Share the blessing!  It’s worth it.~~

You can comment with any questions or you can email me at thebarefoothomeschooler@mediacombb.net
