If you subscribe to All You read on.....

I received numerous comments and complaints last month about how ALL YOU magazine has been offering additional coupon inserts in the newstand issues leaving out faithful subscribers. Many of you wrote to ALL YOU customer service, and I’m happy to share that your efforts were not in vain!
ALL YOU took notice and has issued a response:
We are currently reviewing our policies about accepting coupon advertising, with a goal of more closely aligning the coupon value in our newsstand and subscriber editions. Because we work several months in advance, however, the newsstand edition of the June issue includes an extra booklet with $12.50 worth of coupons. The two editions are otherwise the same in terms of coupon value.
ALL YOU is offering subscribers the chance to receive the extra insert at no cost when you email
Include the following info in your email:
1) Your account number, found on the mailing label just above your name and address. It is nine digits and is usually located between two asterisks, for example *123456789*
2) Your name and address as it appears on the mailing label
3) Your e-mail address
4) A specific mention that you are looking for the “Coupon book from the June issue of ALL YOU”

Thank you Deal Seeking Mom for this info

Did you know.....

Interesting Egg Fact
Did you know that a traditional chef's hat is called a toque? (Toque is pronounced like tow with a hard k sound at the end.) The toque dates back to the 16th Century when hats were common in many trades. Different heights of different toques indicated rank within a kitchen. The symbolism of the 100 folds of the toque are said to represent the 100 different ways a chef knows how to cook an egg. Ok, so the Eggland's Best website doesn't have quite 100 ways to cook an egg yet, but you can find out how to Cook A Perfect Egg. Click here to find out how.

Kindness to our furry friends....

I went to walmart last night and i found hartz cat treat trial sized for .98 and there were hartz coupons for these not excluding trial sized for 1.00 off...also they had in the coupons 1.00 off any hartz product so i scanned to look for dollar items and they had flea and tick spray for cats .98 so that would be free also! so i was thinking if you have multiples of these hartz coupons dont let them go to waste even if you cant use them..donate the stuff im sure there are other hartz products for around a dollar at different stores so keep your eye sure shelters will take anything a toy,treats,flea stuff whatever..just a thought i personally bought at least 15 of the treats and four of the sprays..ill keep a couple of the treats for my cat and my moms but the rest im donating and im stopping at another walmart to see what they have to use up the rest of the couponsthanks for reading hopefully you will find some great ways to use these before they expire either for your pets or someone else i hate to see them go to waste!

Thank you to Jillynoodle (don't you just love that name??) @ HCW

Update: Some of the Q's used for this deal have expired, however having said that there are always pet Q's out there that we can use for this worthy cause!!

The 9 things you should always buy with coupons...

Thanks to RedPlum for this story

Read on to find out which items it makes the most sense to stockpile, and how much you can expect to save.
1) Paper products: (paper towels, toilet tissue, facial tissue) “You generally save 25-50 percent with coupons, but you can save more from time-to-time”, says Turner.
2) Over-the-Counter Medications: Pharmacies often run rebate programs, which can save you up to 100 percent of the purchase price, says Turner.
3) First Aid Items: Expect to save 25-75 percent off the full price of first aid products with a coupon.
4) Razors: The key to getting huge discount on items like razors is to combine coupons with drugstore loyalty programs, advises Tara Kuczykowsk, who runs a blog called Deal Seeking Mom. “For example, last week you could have purchased Gillette Fusion Gamer Razors at CVS for $7.99. There was a coupon in Sunday’s paper for $4 off one of these razors, and when you purchased it using your CVS ExtraCare card you earned $4 in ExtraCare Bucks that you could use on any item in the store”, she says. (Keep an eye out for great printable coupons for health and beauty products here on RedPlum.)
5) Toothbrushes and Toothpaste: According to Kuczykowski it’s often possible to find deals of 50-100 percent off these items.
6) Salad Dressing: Look to save 50-75 percent off with coupons – “especially if you have a store that doubles coupons”, advises Melissa Garcia, publisher of Consumer Queen.
7) Cereal: You can save 50-75 percent off cereal with sales and coupons. Garcia recommends looking for coupons in the paper and online, along with coupons on the actual box that can be used for other items. (And don't forget your mailbox and e-mail inbox for additional RedPlum deals.)
8) Frozen Veggies: Expect to save 50-100 percent. According to Garcia, frozen veggies can often be found for much less than their canned brethren because they run sales and coupons regularly.
9) Pet Food: Turner says it’s common to save 25-50 percent with pet food coupons, although sometimes you’ll find “Try Me Free” coupons on pet food, which is when she suggests stashing even more.

The only thing better than cheese.....

Is FREE cheese!!!

Customer Service

A quick shout out to the ladies and gents at the CVS on Halls Road in Alcoa!! How nice is it to walk into a place of business and be greated by name??? Alisha (hope I spelled that right) is so much fun!! She gets such a kick out of my deals. As a "couponer", sometimes I get the feeling that the stores think I am trying to take them for a ride. Not "my" CVS!! They really provide "5 Star Customer Service"
