Do you still have the link for the cranberry sauce or was that a store printable?

I do 🙂 Click on the price chopper link and all the details are on that page (I’ll edit my post to say that). It is a regular printable – it is for $1 off any Ocean Spray product.

Wow! You did great. I really am going to have to get on the coupon clipping and saving bandwagon. I read about so many people that are saving so much money at the register. I feel like I am losing money!

Coupons really do save a lot of money once you get used to using them! I would love to have a Kroger around here – they accept electronic coupons and always have great deals!
