Wet Ones at Rite Aid 1/2

 Here is a coupon for $1 off of Wet Ones. They are $1.99 at Rite Aid next week, with a $1 Up, making them free after coupon and UP

Wet Ones

Extreme couponing on TLC

I've already had several people ask what I think. Well, to tell the truth, I didn't watch. I had already been warned about it. Here is what I think:

I stockpile. I coupon a LOT. I have gone to recycle bins to get extra coupons. I do not find anything wrong with any of that. Do I have a warehouse full of stuff? No. Do I constantly clear shelves? No. (in fact, if you remember the Aqua Pod fiasco, you remember I was quite vocal about NOT clearing shelves) So I buy more than I can personally use? Often.

With my stockpile, a lot of times I give away, sell, or gift things. There is always a table at my yard sales with new items. If things come up where organizations or people need donations, I do so. I make gift baskets for people I know for Christmas. I don't have a billion things sitting around until they go bad. I have posted pics of my regular stockpiles before. I do not have it stuffed in every corner of my home.

I personally feel that TLC did not want to put people on who do that. I don't think they were looking for people who stockpile for short periods, who work to save money on their bills, etc. I think they were looking for shock value tv. They were looking for people who are out of control. That is not me, and it's not what I want for you.

I have 3 growing sons, and we go through a lot of things. My stockpile helps with that, and it helps me save enough money on our grocery bills that we can afford to do other, nice things. Everyone needs to save money. You don't have to hoard everything on the planet to be a couponer. Do we recommend that you stockpile for 12 week cycles? Absolutely, if you can. (If you remember, I told you a lot of things are on sale in 12 week cycles) If you can't, it's not the end of the world.

Don't get sucked in to this show thinking that is what I am, what the other bloggers are, or what we are trying to get you to be. If you want to watch, great, but keep in mind that most couponers are not like that. You can save money and stockpile without going to an extreme.

I do want to add that one person I know was on the show, Nathan, donates a large portion of his hauls. I cannot speak for anyone else. I do not know him personally, but do know of a website he is affiliated with.

I hope you have a great shopping day!


Kroger is having a 10 for $10 sale as well as a P&G sale. The P&G promo is buy 4 items, get $4 off instantly. I do not have my P&G insert (s) I just wasn't able to secure them this week. I will probably get a couple from my mother and grandfather.

Be SURE to check Kroger's site, Cellfire, and Shortcuts for additional coupons to add to your card.


Check your grocery stores, Walmarts, Kmarts, etc for gift sets, candles, etc marked down that you can use your coupons on! Think outside the box! If your Gillette gift set has a razor in it, use your Gillette razor coupons. Glade candles in the "winter scents", Febreze, etc...all can use coupons. Just because it's on clearnace doesn't mean you can't use those coupons!

Kohl's Clearance

Kohl's is having a clearance sale! There is lots to choose from. Use code TWENTY4U to get another 20% off and if you have a Kohl's charge, use code SHIP2MVC for free shipping. You can use both codes.

Be sure to go through Ebates for 4% cash back

For those of you who aren't aware....

If your Walmart still has any Fusion Razor gift sets (someone cleaned ours out!-not and they are half price like the rest of the holiday items, you can use your $4 Fusion coupon on them to get them for next to nothing! The same goes for the Olay gift sets, Old Spice, etc. Don't forget the Olay ones have a free Allure subscription on them, but if you don't want it, you can get a $10 REFUND! Read the print! Happy hunting!


See that handy little button for on the left there? Click it, and print a $1 coupon for Coast soap. (and any others that might interest you). Take your coupon down to Kroger where Coast 2 packs are $1 each and you get FREE SOAP!
