No Coupons May 30, 2010, and More...

Buffy has posted some good deals on her blog HERE, and she reminds us that we won't get any coupons this Sunday due to the Memorial Day Holiday.

I'm wishing everyone a happy, long, restful, weekend. May the kids be nice and quiet, and may hubby help with KP duty without being asked - or having the dish cloth thrown at him!

I'm (we are) seriously planning a life-changing event - like moving to Denver, Colorado, even though I didn't get the job I was hoping for.

As my hubby likes to say, "If you can't keep up take notes." Or, ... at least keep up with my postings here on the blog and my other blog called Linda's Notebook.

Take Care on the Journey,
Your friend in life and coupons!

No Expired Coupons at Meijers!

I've complained several times because Meijer's is so picky about expired coupons. The two other grocery stores in town never even check and don't really care!

Today I found out why Meijer's always catches an expired coupon.

Yep, I was doing the self check-out and was hoping a Cheerios coupon that expired on the 15th would go through. There it was. The "EXPIRED COUPON" message came up on the computer.

So, here it is for one and all. Take it to Kroger or Giant Eagle where they are happy to accept all your coupons.

I am reminded of the famous verse inscribed on the Statue of Liberty when I think of all the hundreds of coupons in my coupon notebook. Laugh if you wish. I'm smiling!

"Bring your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Take Care on the Journey,
Your friend in life,

Sunday, May 9, 2010, Only One Smart Source

This is your Coupon Ghost from the future....

The Sunday paper for May 9, 2010, will only have one Smart Source. No Red Plum or P&G. This is the regular schedule, so don't worry. Next week will have both again.

Even so, the Smart Source (which I have seen already!!!) has some good coupons as usual.

The coupons include $1.50 on Pedialyte products, $2 Similac, 55-cents on Eckrich Smoked Sausage product, $2 on Earth Options by Raid, $5 Claritin, $3 Nutripals, and $5 off any Schick Hydro Razor - and this one will be on sale at Walgreens next week! Plus more, of course.

Don't forget to follow Buffy's blog (also local for Columbus, OH) blog HERE.

Take Care on the Journey,
Your friend in life and in coupons,
