I like FREE!

I enjoy finding ways to make life work on a 1-income budget (yes, I'm still working at Kuyper College 1 day a week and yes, I still cut out doll clothes as well(http://www.everythingfordolls.com ), but we try not to "live" off of what I contribute financially). Anyways. I clip coupons, scour sales fliers, garage sale, and find places to shop that help us save. Here's a fun recent deal that I came upon:

I do most of my weekly grocery shopping at Meijer. Around here, I feel like they offer the best sales and coupon opportunities. They even offer Meijer coupons at http://www.meijermealbox.com/. These can also be combined with manufacturers coupons for a double whammy. Anyways. Several weeks ago I found a coupon on their site for a FREE 32 oz. MVP Sports Drink (Meijer brand). I have NEVER seen a coupon for free items on there before. I might have printed out a few (Ok, 32). Turns out this was only up there for a limited time because I was telling a friend about it the next day and they had already pulled the coupon from the site. So.....I've landed us 32 FREE Sports Drinks! Yes, I think I'm cool sometimes.

I love couponing too. You must have got that part from me. I remember when you were a kid you or your brothers did not like to go to the store with me because it took too long. That was great when you-all were old enough to stay home as I could get the shopping(with coupons)done faster and without whining. :)

here's some websites to save even more and print off cpns too. Debbie (my daughter-in-law) and I work together on keeping each other informed on special cpns and deals. She is GREAT at it!

And just to udpate you...I haven't redeemd all 32 coupons yet..I just get 4-5 everytime I'm at the store as they don't expire until Oct.17. Yesterday I went and after scanning the 1st coupon, it took off the amounts for all 4 drinks. I didn't even have to hand over the other 3 coupons!
Thanks for the sites Doreen. I visit several of them already.
