All Kinds of Coupons

aI’ve talked before about all of the places that I find coupons, but on a regular basis I find coupons in strange or new places.

Recently, it’s been:

#1 – Preschool/Daycare: They had a huge stack of $1.50/2 coupons for Clorox to encourage you to buy cleaning supplies in your child’s classroom.

#2 – Doctor’s Office: Our doctor’s office has a stack of small samples and coupons that you can peruse and take what you need or want. INVALUABLE. Lot of high dollar medicine coupons like $2/1 Tylenol or $3/1 Triaminic. And even things not typically “medicine” in my mind like $1/1 Desitin diaper rash cream.

#3 – Grocery Store: I know peelies, blinkies and store coupons are frequently found in the grocery store. But recently at both Albertson’s and Tom Thumb, I have found large coupon books with LOTS of manufacturer’s coupons. Even if the books recommend redeeming them at a certain retailer, if they are manufacturer coupons they can be used anywhere. This has made for some incredible deals.

#4 – Junk Mail: I hate junk mail. Really. It junks up everything. But I do try to flip through it and make sure I’m not missing anything. Today I stopped and looked through the Coupon Clipper magazine which I believe is local, but you probably get something similar.

They had a couple of good restaurant coupons, but then at the back they had two facing pages of coupons that looked like this:

imageI don’t know if you can see this but there are eight coupons at the top that are good at any of the restaurants and stores at the bottom . . . including IHOP, Babusan, Waffle House, Baskin Robins, etc. The higher your total, the more you save – so it’s $2/$10 but $20/$100 more. Many times I have eaten or shopped in these places and easily spent $10 but NEVER used these coupons. To be honest, I’ve never even paid attention to them.

So, for you local folks, go grab this book out of your mail or your recycle bin and throw it in the car just in case you visit one of the participating establishments. That’s a SUPER easy way to save.

Have any of you used these coupons?

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
