Many of us have budgets we stick to every week for groceries. With fall here, and winter around the corner, now is the time to stock up. If you challenge yourself to spend maybe as little as $5.00- $10.00 extra a week, you just may grow a nice stockpile without breaking the budget.

Let me give you an example, lets say your grocery budget for the week is $75.00, by allowing yourself to go over budget by lets say$5.00-$10.00 you can collect alot of goodies and stash them away for later use.

For example this week at Meijer, there is a 10 for $10.00 sale going on with lots of variety of items to choose. That means each item is $1.00. My family loves cinnamon applesauce and it just happens to be a 10 for $10.00 item. My plan is to make a trip to Meijer this week and buy 11 jars of applesauce (you get the 11th FREE)

Now by stocking up on 11 jars of applesauce with as little as $10.00 this week you can be well on your way to a nice stash of goodies this winter.

If you put this plan into action every week until winter approaches you will have a nice stockpile of extra's to get you through winter.


Im not seeing that many great deals on things I could use this week, but I will post the best deals I found that couldl be of help to you.... (check out last item on this page for a $10.00 money maker!)

1. 1 Bic Soleil $5.99 (use $2.00 coupon August insert)= $3.99 GET $4.00 ECB= FREE

2. Colgate Max Fresh $2.99 (use $1.00 coupon 9/28 smart source)= $1.99 GET $2.00 ECB= FREE

3. Aquafresh toothpaste .99 (use $1.00 coupon Aug. insert)= FREE

This is a great money maker if you have the save upto $30.00 coupon from March or June smartsource...

Buy 1 Breeze2 $14.99 (use upto $30.00 coupon)= No money out of pocket + GET $10.00 ECB.

YOU CAN MAKE $10.00!!!

Talking about stockpiling has got me thinking..................
Stay tuned for a series on stocking up for the winter. I will post some great tips to have your home well stocked through the bitter cold months that lay ahead. It would be great to have most household goods stocked so that you would not have to run out in an unexpected snowstorm.

I know that through couponing these last few months I have a nice stockpile of deodorant, toothpaste ,shampoo, conditioner, cleaning products, and soap. The great part is that most of these items were free!!

Stay tuned for this series as I help you stock up your home for the winter.


In tomorrow's newspaper there will be 3-4 coupon inserts. That would be a great start for "new couponers" to get a nice collection of coupons going. I suggest picking up at least 2 papers. Remember if a sensational deal pops up, the more coupons you have for that item the more you can take advantage of it and start stockpiling.

So go out bright and early and get your papers!!


As the holiday months are just around the corner, all the festivities will soon be here. I found some free Holiday Cookie Recipe Cards. Some of you may be involoved in a cookie exchange, or for you top notch bakers, check out these new cookie recipes.

I know I need practice in the baking department, It is a work of art I need to practice mastering.
