Will You Spend $688 for Back to School?

The National Retail Federation says you will. In fact, it recently came up with a Top 10 spending infographic that highlights some pretty interesting stats on why back to school 2012 may be like no other. Check it out below. P.S. If I can help it, I will spend way less than that on back to school, and I will try to document my spending in a near-future blog post!

Coupons for Back to School Lunches

Back to school is almost here, and soon enough you will be packing school lunches. Isn’t summer wonderful without lunches to worry about packing? Well, unless your kids go to day camp where you need to pack a lunch. But I digress.

And these coupons are for items that work perfectly on school days. Some of these items are ideal for packing in a lunch; others are great to have...

6 Freebies from Vistaprint

Whenever I need anything printed for my business, I turn to Vistaprint. It’s the company I’ve used for business cards, stationery, envelopes, and promotional postcards. I’ve even ordered invitations from Vistaprint. Right now Vistaprint is offering six freebies, which I heard about through one of my affiliate networks.

Entertainment Books 2 for $10

Are you still on the fence about buying an Entertainment Book? Well, all 2012 Entertainment Books are still 2 for $10, as part of the Summer Liquidation Sale! I’ve mentioned in the past how I usually buy two Entertainment Books, and keep one in each of our cars. That way when we go to a restaurant, retail shop, or even an amusement park, we always have coupons at the ready. You can find Entertainment Books for dozens of cities across the country and in Canada, too.

There are two new penny deals at Staples this week. As I suspected, now that it’s officially back to school in Staples stores, Staples is offering different penny deals each week to help parents like me stock up for back to school, albeit one to two school supplies at a time. In addition to items being offered for one cent, this week you can find a few freebies as well as supplies for a buck or less. And that $5 off a purchase of $30 coupon I’d mentioned was available online? It is front and center in this Sunday’s...

Coupons for the Produce Aisle

In a recent blog post, I shared some of my suggestions on where to find coupons–in places other than the Sunday newspaper. You’ll recall that one of my tips was to look on social media. That is, to go “Like” your favorite brands on Facebook so you’ll be the first to know about coupons. Well guess what? That approach to couponing works with fresh and frozen produce as well as other products you might find in the produce aisle. At least that’s what a recent Krazy Coupon Lady blog post suggested. They mention 10 brands to “Like” on Facebook...
