Welcome Extreme Coupon Viewers

You know how something can be so good and so bad at the same time (a minute on the lips a lifetime on the hips)?

That’s how I feel about Extreme Couponing on TLC.  Hate the show, but love that it shows people that they don’t need to pay full price for things.

Here are some of the behind the scenes things they don’t show you:

– These couponers spend hundreds of dollars buying coupons online
– They generally spend atleast the time of a full time job preparing and shopping
– They generally are eating alot of unhealthy food with their extreme saving

So much for “reality.”

Some parts of the show are true- you can save hundreds of dollars using coupons.  You can stockpile items so that when times get tough you have a cushion.  You can donate items and make a profound difference in people’s lives.

But those things shouldn’t require 30 hours a week.  You shouldn’t need to buy hundreds of copies of coupons.  On average I save 50% off of my groceries and eat lots of fruits and vegetables.

Would 50% be enough of a difference for you?  I want to help!

Here are some steps I would encourage you to take if you are just beginning couponing:

1.  Get something to organize your coupons.  It does NOT need to be expensive.  At most Targets there are little accordion size folders in the $1 bins.  That will work just fine for your first few weeks.

2.  Get used to printing coupons.  Coupons.com, TheCouponNetwork.com and RedPlum.com are all sites that have lots of printable coupons.  You can go through and see if there are items your family already uses. 

3.  Get the Sunday paper.  Whether you have it delivered, get the coupons from a friend who doesn’t use them or pick up a copy at your local store (check the dollar stores) the newspaper is a great source for coupons.

4.  Pick a store to start.  Do not get overwhelmed running from store to store trying to get deals.  Take a moment, go online and find the coupon policy for your favorite grocery store.  Take some time to understand their limits and how you can save big.

5.  Find a blogger who has your local stores deals.  I would love for you to come check my site every day (or you can sign up and have the deals e-mailed to you).  An easy way to keep up is to follow me on facebook- I promise I will not update a ridiculous amount of times every day.

6.  If you can, take a coupon class.  While some couponers are self-taught it is SO much easier to attend a class and have someone explain it to you.  I do teach them in Hampton Roads but if you aren’t in VA or NC take a look around, you might find someone in your area who loves to teach as much as I do! 

Just remember everything is baby steps.  You are not going to save 90% on each and every trip- especially if you buy meat, fresh fruit or fresh veggies. 

Please enjoy Extreme Couponing for it’s entertainment value but realize that real life is not nearly interesting enough for a TV show!

Extreme Couponing Season 2 9/28 Premiere

It is beginning again.

TLC’s Extreme Couponing begins again on the 28th of this month.

And while I continue to battle with my love/hate relationship with the show, many of you will watch it for either education or entertainment purposes. 

So I wanted to reach out to my readers and remind them that this is EXTREME.  Most good couponers save about 50% on their groceries and are very happy with those results (I know I am!)

This is one of the reasons I teach coupon classes in Hampton Roads- I want to show people how to reasonably coupon.  Your stockpile doesn’t need to take over your home! 

If I am home in time Wednesday night (I have a class to teach!) I will be on my facebook page talking to you guys about Extreme Couponing to see what you think.

Thanks for being great couponers who treat others with respect at the store and still save big!

An Alphabet Refresher: What Does It All Mean?

Couponing has a lot of abbreviations that us bloggers use to save some time when we do the match ups.  Without knowing what they mean it can be confusing.  So here is a list of the most common ones:

BLINKY = In Store Smart Source Coupons (these are the ones on the machines attached to the shelves with the blinking lights)

BOGO/B1G1 = Buy One Get One Free

CATALINA = Coupon printed at register after purchased, long narrow coupons

DND = Do not Double

ECB = ExtraCare Bucks (CVS)

GM = General Mills (Newspaper insert)

MIR = Mail in Rebate

OOP = Out of Pocket

P&G = Proctor & Gamble (Newspaper Insert)

Peelie = Coupon you peel off package

RP= Red Plum (Newspaper Insert)

RR = Register Rewards (Walgreens)

SS= Smart Source (Newspaper Insert)

STACKING = Using stores allow multiple use of coupons – manufacturer’s & store coupons or rebates.

TEAR PAD = A pad of coupons or MIR near a product or on display

UPR = Up + Rewards (Rite Aid)

WYB = When You Buy

I hope this helps! If you see any other ones let me know and I will add them to the list!

Kids Frugal Fun – Apple Tree

Each week Mom on Dealz brings you a kids craft that is fun, educational, and frugal! September 26th is Johnny Appleseed Day so this week we are doing a fun apple themed craft.  Be sure to read and try the educational activities listed at the bottom.

Hand Print Apple Tree
Materials:
Green Finger Paint
White Paper
Red Paper or Red Finger Paint
Brown Paper
Glue
Markers

Directions:
1. Paint your child’s hand green and have them put 3 hand prints on the paper. Allow to dry.

2. Cut a tree trunk out of brown paper (or draw one) coming down from the hands.

3. Dip your child’s finger tip in red paint and have them paint “apples” in the tree (or cut apple shapes from red paper and glue in the green hands).

4. Add branches or other details to your liking.

5. You now have a memento of your child’s hand print + an apple tree to display during the Fall!

Educational Acitivities:

Language Arts: 1. Johnny Appleseed is a real man that became a legend by traveling across the country planting apple trees. Share with your child his story and discuss that legends are stories that are traditionally true or based on someone “real” but that get exaggerated over time to contain both fact and fiction. 2. Focus on the letter “A” all day with your child. Discuss the sounds A makes, other words that start with that same sound, do a hunt around the house for items that start with A, hunt for “A” in newspapers, magazines, or books. 3. Create a list of adjectives to describe apples-“Apples are…….”

Science: 1. Cut an apple in half and sprinkle one half with lemon and leave the other half plain. Leave for a couple of hours and then revisit the halves. Discuss with your child the differences. 2. Plant an apple tree and discuss all the things a tree/plant need to survive (water, sunlight, etc).

Math: 1. Discuss with your child that apples have seeds. Have them make a prediction of how many seeds they will find in an apple. Cut the apple and count the seeds. 2. Use a bag of apples and have your child put them in order of smallest to biggest. 3. Cut apple in halves, fourths, and other ways to demonstrate fractions.

History/Social Studies: Discuss that Johnny Appleseed was a real person who was one American settlers who wanted to move west to settle across America. Talk about cardinal directions, explaining where “west” is on a map or in relation to where you live.

Kids Frugal Fun- Pirate Theme

Each week Mom On Dealz brings you a kids craft that is fun, educational, and frugal! September 19th is National Talk Like A Pirate Day (what fun!) so I just had to do some pirate themed craft ideas! This week I am giving you 3 crafts! For my past crafts, visit here!

 

Pirate Treasure Box

Materials:

Baby Wipe Container, Tissue Box, or Shoe Box
Glue
Gems, Shells, other Decorations
Black Construction Paper
White Construcion Paper
Red Felt or Construction Paper
Scissors
Tin Foil

Directions:
1. Completely cover the box you are using with black construction paper, wrapping it so you can still open the box or drop items into the box hole.

2. Cut out a letters to spell treasure box and a crossbones design from the white paper and glue to the box.

3. Line the inside of the box with red felt or paper.

4. Decorate the outside with gems, shells, tin foil shapes, or your desired decor.

Pirate Treasure Map

Materials:
Paper Shopping Bag
Markers

Directions:
1. Rip/Tear a square out of the bag.
2. Crumple up the bag and then lay flat.
3. Create your map and directions to your treasure box!

Pirate Spy Glass

Materials:
Paper towel holder
Plastic wrap
Markers

Directions:
1. Wrap plastic wrap around one end of the paper towel roll to create a “glass” effect.
2. Color/decorate your spy glass to your preference.

Educational Activities:

Language Arts: 1. Participating in dramatic play is an important kindergarten skill so while your hunting for treasure or doing the crafts, have your child talk like a pirate! 2. Have your child use pictures or words to tell about the treasure hunt or about the steps to creating the crafts. 3. Read a pirate themed book to your child and have them ID pictures during the story and retell the story when you are done reading.

Social Studies/History: 1. Maps are a huge skill that your child will be working on for most of their school life so creating a map is great practice! Maps can be be as simple as pictures only to as elaborate as you want using elements such as compass rose, map keys, etc. 2. While creating your crafts, use directional words such as left, right, near, far, behind, in front of. These words will help build their vocabulary and understanding of positions.

Math: 1. Cut shapes out of tin foil to decorate the treasure box. You can discuss the different shapes with your child and you can also glue them in a pattern around the box and help your child identify the pattern.

Science: 1. On the map, use non-standard measurement to help your child find the treasure. You can write or say directions such as, move 5 hand lengths to the right or 10 bunny hops from the couch. 2. Put various “treasures” inside the box and have your child close their eyes and reach into the box grabbing items and telling about their properties without looking (smooth, hard, soft, rough). Then have your child open their eyes and discuss the properties using sense of sight (color, shape, etc).

Another Use For My Stockpile- Car Repair

Saturday I was driving out of a friend’s neighborhood and I heard a loud “pop” in the back of my car.  I looked in my rearview mirror to see a softball sized hole in the glass.  As I watched the glass continued to crumble into my backseat.  As I drove my car back to my friend’s house even more glass loosened and I knew I wouldn’t be driving anywhere for the rest of the weekend.

When I got home I knew I needed to seal up the back so the inside of the car didn’t get wet.  Before couponing I would have been the girl who would have had to walk to the drug store and pay too much money for trash bags and duct tape.  Last night I went into my closet, pulled out packing tape and trash bags and taped up the back of my car.  It didn’t cost me an extra penny out of my pocket.

Sometimes it in nice to have just what you need when you need it.  And couponing can help with that!

Remembering September 11, 2001

I have been trying to figure out all week what to write in this post. 

I knew I could ignore this topic all together since it’s has nothing to do with being frugal but it just didn’t feel right.

Everyone has a story about 9/11.  Everyone knows where they were the moment they heard the news.

Everyone knew in that moment what the most important thing in their world was.  I don’t think anyone checked their bank account balance, worried about running a few minutes late to a meeting or thought about if they had gained a little weight on 9/11.  They wanted to know where their family and friends were and that everyone was safe.  We were proud of our country, angry at the injustice and wept as one nation.

Today take a moment to remember those same emotions.  Remember the comfort each time you heard from someone on that day you were worried about.  Remember that for some 9/11 has become a part of their every day lives.  It’s a picture on a mantel of a loved one who will never return.  It’s a little boy or girl who never met their father.  It’s a firehouse that lost some of their best trying to save others.  

In the busyness of your day take a second and let someone know you love them.  Say a prayer for the families still grieving.  Or take a few minutes of your day to listen to a song that helps you reflect on the event. 

And don’t ever forget.
