Planning ahead each week before buying your newspapers…
I hope that everyone had a fantastic holiday season. I have to admit, that I did not do a lot of coupon shopping the past few weeks. We got ready for Christmas, traveled to see both my and my husband’s families, and spent some time relaxing when we could! Now we’re home and ready to get back into our school, work, and coupon routines.
Coupon inserts schedule and weekly previews
With the New Year comes, the new coupon insert schedule for the year. I like the site www.couponinsertspreview.com. Right now there’s the tentative schedule for the year, and you can also see a preview of what to expect in next week’s paper. I like to check this site out at the end of each week to see what might be in my Sunday paper. I get one Chicago Tribune delivered to my home each week, but if I can tell that this might be a “good week” for coupon inserts, I’ll run out Sunday morning and get another paper. You’ll find similar schedules on some of your other favorite blogs, but so far this is the one I like the best.
It’s time to get out there are start stocking up on your favorites again. This week at Walgreens, they have Dean’s milk on sale for $1.99. I haven’t seen milk priced this low in a long time. (I’ve heard you can freeze milk, has anyone tried this before?) Walgreens also has deals on Triaminic, Sundown vitamins, Herbal Essence products, Dawn dish soap, General Mills cereal, and 4 x 6 prints are just 9 cents when you buy at least 100. There are quite a few good deals at Target this week too. Gift card promotions on Lean Cuisine and Fiber One bars. Also good deals on Flintstone vitamins and All detergent. CVS has a lot of great deals this week, too. I wish the closest one to me wasn’t 35 minutes away! They are offering a Free $10 CVS Cash card when you buy $30 in CVS brand or specially marked products. Also look for deals on Nivea lipcare and lotion, Osteo Bi Flex, Colgate toothbrushes, Old Spice Body Wash, and Dawn dish soap.
