Coupon Class Fundraiser- 4/20/13 @ Panera (Allen Park)

11 Apr

Hi Everyone,

As I posted yesterday, I was thinking about putting together a small coupon class/fundraiser at a local Panera Bakery to help raise money for the Friends for the Dearborn Animal Shelter Mutt Strut & Pet Expo. I have received some interest in the class so I am going ahead and schedule it.

Here are the details:

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Panera in Allen Park (The Hill)

2:00pm

To sign up, please make a $10 donation (or more, if you’d like) by going to my fundraiser page  (A $10 donation provides special formula for an orphan kitten or puppy for 6 days.) Please put “coupon class” in the comment section on my fundraising page so I know that you’ll be attending.

Space will be limited. I would like to keep it small, with no more than 5 people.

If there is a high demand, I’ll set up a second class!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

We adopted our dog, Bella, from the Friends for the Dearborn Animal Shelter and ever since then, the shelter has held a very special place in my heart. Every year they host a pledge-driven walk to raise money to help take care of the animals in their shelter. These are great people with a great big heart.

Our dog, Bella.

Kroger Deals for week of 4/7 – 26

11 Apr

I love Kroger. One of my favorite stores to shop. They make stocking up so easy with their promotions.

This week they are running a Buy 5, Save $5 promotion and it will extend to next week. So 99% of the items that are on sale this week, will most likely be on sale again next week. Remember, you will need your Kroger Card to snag these promotion prices.

Also remember, you don’t have to buy 5 of one specific item to get the promotion price (unless you want 5 of the same thing–i.e, you want to stock up on an item). You can mix and match these deals.

There is also no limit as to how many “sets” of 5 that you can buy! Your whole shopping cart can be everything that’s in the promotion– that is completely fine. You will SAVE big $$ in the end.

It’s these types of sales that make it great to STOCK up on items.

Side note: I can’t seem to link to the printable coupons. You can find the printable coupons on http://www.coupons.com

Meijer Deals for week of 4/7-13

10 Apr

Hi Everyone:

It’s 10 for $10, get the 11th item FREE this week at Meijer — one of my favorite sales!

Remember, you don’t have to buy 10 of one specific item to get the deal (unless you want 10, of course). It just means that it is on sale for $1.00. TIP: for the 11th item, pick an item that you don’t have a coupon for.

Remember: Meijer’s will only double 2 similar coupons. If you want to grab the deal again, you will have to do a separate transaction. Just tell the cashier that you would like to do 2 transactions. It is not a big deal. Cashiers don’t mind as long as you tell them in advance. I do it all the time.

Totinos Pizza Rolls, 15 ct – $1.00
Buy 3 and use the . 75 cents/3 coupon from the 1/27 SS insert
You pay $2.25 for 3 packages (.75 cents each!)

Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits, 12-16.3 oz – $1.00
Buy 3 and use the .40 cent/3 coupon from the 3/24 SS insert (this coupon will double)
You pay $2.20 for 3 cans (.73 cents each!)

Armour Sliced Pepperoni, 3 oz – $1.00
There is a printable coupon for .55 cents/1 (Remember, you can print off the coupon twice)
Buy 1 and pay .45 cents

Minute Maid Premium Lemonade and Fruit Punch – $1.00There is no coupon for this but it’s a great price for juice!

Barilla Pasta, $1.00
There is no coupon for this but it’s a great STOCK UP price!

Meijer Ketchup – $1.00There is no coupon for this but this is a GREAT stock up price.

I will buy 5 bottles myself as this will last us through the summer. My husband LOVES his ketchup. He practically drowns his fries and burgers in it. =)

Ketchup and pasta are great items to stock up on because it has a long shelf life.

Those are the best deals that I could find. I noticed that a lot of the 10/$10 don’t have many coupon match ups. Either way, $1.00 is a great stock up price.

Coupon Fundraiser-?

10 Apr

Hi Everyone,

I am currently raising money for the Friends for the Dearborn Animal Shelter Mutt Strut & Pet Expo.

I am thinking about hosting a couple small coupon classes at a local Panera Bakery (one in Allen Park and one in Dearborn Heights) and have ALL the proceeds go directly to the animal shelter.

The class size will be small — limit it to no more than 5 people.

The cost of the class will be $10.

A $10 donation provides special formula for an orphan kitten or puppy for 6 days.

Please leave a comment below and let me know if this is something that you would be interested in participating in. If I get a good response, I will post the dates and how to register for the class.

THANKS!

Hey Everyone:

Don’t forget to get your .99 cent laundry detergent this week at CVS!

Be sure to visit the coupon center and scan your card for the $1.00 store coupon.

I am not brand loyal when it comes to laundry – – .99 cents is a GREAT price for 30 loads and will definitely get the job done.

Blog Review!

10 Apr

I received an e-mail from one of my friend and blog follower.

She gave me permission to share her e-mail with you all:

I kept meaning to call you, and then send you a pic…then I just said forget it; I’m going to email you!

 

I went to CVS and spent $13.00 and got over $65.00 worth of items!!!! (not mention still have $3 CVS bucks left, and a $3.00 off coupon I forgot to use!)

 

I was so excited! It was the best high in the WORLD!!!! (4 body washes (free), multiple shampoos and conditioners, toothbrushes, toothbrushes, mouth wash, etc…) And this is just the beginning!!!

 

I just can’t wait until I get this good at the grocery store. CVS makes it kind of easy with the coupon stacking and all…

 

I just really want to say thank you. Your information has not only given me the courage to try this again, and to really stick to it, but you’ve also aided in my success! You have no idea how much I appreciate you. Thank you for all you do and please be encouraged to continue! You have a fan in me.

 

I plan to come to the May class, just to hone in on my skills even more!!!

Thank you,

Stepfanie

 

This e-mail completely made my day. I only hope that I am helping all of my readers!
