Online Coupons Reset

Tuesday, December 1, 2009 | | 0 comments
It is the first of the month, so you know what that means! The online coupons, Group A-Group C have reset. Some of my favorites were $1/2lbs of any cheese, $1.50/1 Box of Wheatables, $1/1 Muir Glen. Here are some tips about online or Internet printable coupons:


  • Manufactures set limits on the amounts of coupons printed. When the limit is reached they pull their coupons off. That means occasionally you will go the print a coupon and it will be gone unless you printed it off at the beginning.

  • This is even more important toward the end of a month. Coupons group A-C are reset at the first of the month, so on the FIRST, when the coupons reset, they start out at zero.

  • Sometimes manufactures will reset their coupons after the limit is reached, but don't count on it. Just consider yourself lucky if they do.

  • I know some people are having problems with IPS. I wish I could help out in that area, but I am not tech savvy enough. I have heard that switching browsers can help. Example: On Internet Explorer and they won't print try Fire Fox or vice virsa. Another great resource is pinching your pennies. They have an entire forum to troubleshooting your IPS.

Some questions to commonly asked IP questions answered:

  • Where are online coupons located? All over! You can see over the the left hand side of this there are online coupons, group A-Singles . You can also find coupons on manufactures websites, you can receive them via-email and sometimes websites will give them to you after you join their mailing lists or take a survey for them. When the Grocery Smarts lists are up you will see links that take you to online coupons. The best part about those lists are that if there are coupons online, they are on the lists. You will never have to search for coupons for items on the list yourself! Grocery Smarts lists do all the work for you.
  • "Are IP'S worth it? It seems like a lot of paper and ink to be wasting." My answer is it depends. I think after you have a couple months worth of newspaper coupons its hit and miss. I only print ones of that make things close to FREE or if it is something I really like or know I will need. You'll never catch me printing of cereal coupons or toothpaste coupons. That is because I have DOZENS of them from my newspaper.

  • Now, if you are staring out and only have a few coupons from the paper on the list then I definitely recommend using IPS to maximize your savings. My sister in law started out and only had a weeks worth of coupons, but wanted to start saving right away, so she maximized her coupons by using IPS. She told me her husband was frustrated by all the paper in ink she was using, but after she shopped she had saved over $50. That paper and ink WAY over paid for itself. IP'S are a great way of subsidizing newspaper coupons, but not a great substitute! Newspaper coupons will benefit you way more in the the long end.

  • "How long do IP'S last". IPS have expiration dates on them the same way other coupons do. Most times they expire WAY faster than the ones in the paper. That's why I only print the ones off from the list that week. Otherwise they tend to expire before I have a chance to use them.

  • "Can we print them off in black and white?" It depends on your store. Some stores will take black and white, some will not. Be sure to ask if you are planning on trying black and white. There reason behind that is they are trying to protect themselves from illegal photocopied coupons.

  • Do all stores take IP's and the answer is no. Not all stores do take IPS. I do know that Albertsons and Smiths DO and as of August first Associated Foods started accepting IP's again. My suggestion with other stores is call ahead and ask if you are planning on using them on your shopping trip.

Also don't forget the two IP's per HOUSEHOLD rule! Have fun printing!

Where are the Grocery Smarts Lists?

Monday, November 30, 2009 | | 0 comments

Have you tried to go grocery shopping the last couple days and found no list to use? Thanksgiving is on a Thursday and as most of you know the sale ads generally run until Wednesday. To accommodate Thanksgiving they ran the ads a couple days longer, but now there are NO ads to run. The stores take a little break and will resume the regular sales this coming Wednesday.

I enjoy this little break each year. This is one of the times that a giant food storage is nice to have and all I do is run in for my fresh food items. Take advantage of this little break and start making your holiday baking list and figure out what you have on hand and what items you'll need to find at the upcoming sales!

Cyber Monday

Did anyone else make it to Black Friday? I had so much fun and scored some HOT deals! Here I am at Toys R Us with 10,000 other people. The store had no idea that so many people would be there at midnight and it was INSANE! I ran into so many of you there and had a great time chatting with you! If you are disappointed that you didn't make it to the sales on Friday your okay because today is.......Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday is known as the busiest online shopping day. I have to admit I love Cyber Monday because I can sit at home and score all the deals with just a simple click. No crazy hours or long lines. The only thing I worry about is that the item is what I really want without seeing it in person. If you are interested in shopping the Cyber Monday deals be sure to check out,
