How a Couponer Prepares for a Hurricane

I read a great post at For The Mommas about hurricane preparation and the nature of couponers and having a stockpile. While I personally don't keep a large stockpile myself, having any amount of extra food for emergencies can be helpful not only for your family but for those around you.

Empty shelves at the grocery store, that is all you will find here in the bread, water and peanut butter aisles right now. I just got off the phone with someone asking if I had any spare peanut butter, because they cannot find any, anywhere. I saw my neighbor in the store and she needed toilet paper.

Sunday Coupon Preview 8-28-11

There are 3 inserts in the paper this week; 1 Smart Source Insert, 1 Red Plum Insert and 1 Proctor & Gamble Insert. Don’t forget to buy the largest circulation paper in your area for the best coupons. For example last week I purchased my local paper and it didn't have the Smart Source Coupons I needed.

Success Stories: Link Up

Well it's shopping Friday and I did not go shopping again this week. Currently I have enough food to last until my Wedding and Vacation next week. The other reason was my $0.30 gas coupon came up missing. I was actually only going to spend $50 this week for the gas savings but without the coupon it seemed pointless. I might have gone for the 200 points for the Clorox Deal, but my SmartSource didn't have the coupons I needed. So in the end I'll just save the $50 and use it on my Vacation.

Leave a comment or link and let me know what kind of saving you got this week.
