It’s time for another giveaway! It is time to celebrate since I now have over 200 subscribers and 100 followers 🙂 Thank you! I also joined forces with The Grocery Gathering to provide you with coupon matchups for stores around the country. I do matchups for HyVee, Price Chopper, CVS, Walgreens, and Natures Pantry for their site. They are going to be featured on Good Morning America on Wednesday! Congratulations to BeCentsAble and I am so thrilled to be helping out 🙂

I am also celebrating the fact that tomorrow is the first day of “WAHM Wednesday” where I will be posting an interview with a WAHM and introducing you to her wonderful products every Wednesday. That will also have a giveaway so be sure to come back and see what Heather has to offer!

How do you best recommend to get our of credit card debt? Cold Turkery, combining onto a new card with a lower interest rate or just paying on each one?

Very few if any of the stores around me will take internet printed coupons. Is there a blog, etc. where I can keep updated on who is accepting these without having to ask everytime I go in the store?

I am new here and new to coupons, “cvs”ing and trying to stretch our tight budget now that we have two kids, but I plan to start following your blog!!! I need motivation and inspiration!


22 summe21 January 28, 2009 at 2:55 pm

I need some good suggestions for keeping my coupons organized. I am a working mom of a 2 year old and a 4 month old so organization is KEY!

What’s the best way to go about investing extra money right now given the market conditions?

Thank you for having this!
I would love to win. My question is with Walgreens – we have one opening up soon near me. Can you use a regular coupon from the newspaper and one of their walgreens coupons together? If so that would be wonderful.
Thank you


32 valerie2350 January 28, 2009 at 9:18 pm

which is your favorite – cvs or walgreens? Why? 🙂


33 valerie2350 January 28, 2009 at 9:19 pm

When is the best time to check out CVS for markdowns? Do they have a certain day?


36 Becky January 29, 2009 at 6:58 pm

I CVS, but don’t Walgreens shop yet…are rapid rewards the same as extra care bucks?


37 AudreyO January 30, 2009 at 5:10 am

What’s an economical way to eat out and I don’t mean fast food LOL.


38 Misty January 31, 2009 at 1:28 am

My question would be where is the best place to have money that you’re saving – where would it gain the most interest?
