Yep, you’ve asked that I give you a heads up when those rock ’em, sock ’em, kick them out of the park kind of savings come around, and it’s here…again.
You would have laughed at my friend and me, sitting around the moms’ snack room while our kids were in their weekly home school classes, clipping coupons, and stuffing our coupon binders. Of which mine has now been completed upgraded for this non organizer.
I think we ended up explaining the CVS “game” and double coupons for three straight hours.
It was a site to behold (or laugh at…it’s ok, I am fine with that 🙂
Anyhow, she pulled out the Kmart flyer…yes, you guessed it.
Kmart is doubling coupons up to, and including $2.
Do you remember all of this, and how much I saved?
I know, I know….I don’t have the time to go either, but it’s SO worth it.
You’ll be thanking me afterwards.
Remember, if you procrastinate like I did, the shelves may be empty.
So head on over there tomorrow.
The “details” are the same as last time.
**They will DOUBLE $2 manufacturer coupons
(you can’t use internet coupons for this).
That means if you if you have a $2 item and have a $1 coupon for it,
yes…it’s free! Body wash…free! Cleaning supplies – $.50.
There are oodles of free or nearly free things to be had…
it’s yours for the taking –
if you hurry.
Just a small showing of what I found the last time around for pennies on the dollar. Deals vary from store to store (especially if you have a few other thrifty ladies in your area…hee hee).
I am scrambling to get my house ready, but
come back tomorrow and I will share the budget balancer that I accomplished today.
$39.96 of marinated pork tenderloin from the meat department for only $9.96.
This meal will grace our table tomorrow evening for the
company that is coming for a week. And the reason I am scrambling? Well, my daughter put it so eloquently today as she proclaimed to 40 some people, “Our house is a wreck.”
But you know how I love “Homestead Hospitality.”
It will soon be a haven. 🙂
And yes, as much as you were all pulling for Mocha, she is finally back in her rightful place (which isn’t the porch swing).
Awwww Mocha, sweet wittle Mocah!! And we are seriously thinking about trying the coupon this, it really seems time consuming… I see alot more people are starting to do it and I think the thrill of the savings would be awesome!! Good for you, and get the house ready incase we want to stop by 🙂 L A
Poor Mocha…cracks me up! You really know how to save…everytime I read you..I am inspired! I cut coupons and put them in a binder..THAT is BIG! Now I can’t forget to bring it to the store!
You’re the best!
Wish I could come over for that delicious meal.
thank you so much for what you do and what you share with us.. i know it’s something that you just do but i really appreciate that you take time to share all your tips/savings with us!
Rats. I’m mourning that all our KMarts have closed here. Still hanging in with the coupons. Thanks for all the good tips.
Great ideas! Hoping you have plenty of time to prepare for your company…. and some time to rest yourself! But, I really think Mocha is a great welcome effect!!!
YAY! Thank you for this, Jen!! Your post is a direct answer to a prayer that I hadn’t even yet had the guts to utter. I was going to ask God to lead me in the direction of some sound, Biblical frugal tips on how to cut costs, and you totally came through! I can’t wait to get more serious about this.

You probably already know this, but if you go to http://www.kmart.com, you can get two $5 coupons for purchases over $50, one for instore and one for online shopping. Mine says it’s only good until Saturday, 11/1 but they may change that as people sign up??
BTW,Mocha looked adorable!
Oh I just gotta get organized. I love to save the money but I haven’t put in the time yet! 🙂
Hi Jen, First of all, let me say that the goat below is the cutest thing ever, sitting up there on “his throne!” LOLOL! What a mighty fine welcoming committee! I’m not joking, I really think he is just precious! 🙂
I laughed at the proclamation to the world that your house is a wreck….oh kids, gotta love ’em, even though they will tell any and all! LOL! And I laugh ’cause I’ve been there! LOL!
Thanks for the heads up on Kmart. I missed it last time, so I will head that way shortly! ~Rhonda 🙂
Oh poor Mocha. So sorry to hear she was shooed off the swing. She looked so comfy. Anyway, thanks for the heads up about the KMart stuff!
Though I have seen the coupon binder, I still haven’t grasped the concept. Do the coupons get all jumbled up in the sleeves? Are they in order in the binder? Maybe I need to go back and review your older posts. And it may help to go to the grocery store without my four year old…
As always, love the tips and advice.– Brandi
Mocha, I vote you should be able to stay on the swing. You are so Cute!
awesome job with the buys! your guests will certainly enjoy it and it’ll taste even better to you and hubby! 🙂
i wish we had a kmart near here! i’m just getting started with the couponing…been clipping for about a month…am still learning how to best save.
our kmart closed when walmart moved in. and i’m not sure if walmart ever does double coupons…
Oh how I wish I could save like you do! My husband does the shopping and we live in the sticks. What does all that mean? He goes to Wal-Mart and any shopping civilization is an hour from here. :o)
I admire how you are able to stretch your family’s dollar to care for all of your needs. I love coupons!! Which Wal-Mart does take, so that is good! :o)
Love Mocha!! My friend has a goat named Delilah. She thinks she is a dog! :o)
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne
Ok I guess I gotta start buying a paper to get some coupons! I know the thrill of garage sales has caught onto my kids and I have a carload with me too. So wish we were neighbors. I miss seeing you! Thanks for the laughs, love the toe picture! LOL I’m going to try a copy your blessing book by Sunday for a family getting baptized! Do you have any closer pictures so I can copy better?
