We all love to save with coupons right? But we also know the cost of newspapers have gone up especially for the Sunday Paper. We can get many coupons by Printing Them Online as we know but not always are they the same. We can also stack With Coupon Rebates. But if we were to buy 10 papers every week for example at the National going rate of around $4.50 per newspaper that is an expense of $45.00. Some weeks only have one inserts where other weeks have 2 or even 3 inserts. the weeks we have 3 inserts that is a total of 30 so the cost is a little more worth it but still very high. Below I am listing some ways you can cut that cost WAY DOWN.
Newspaper subscriptions are available in the following states listed A to Z
As a reminder, Amazon Prime prices go up on May 11th from $99 a year to $119 a year. We found a few ways to avoid the price hike for a bit. Amazon Prime offers free 2 day shipping and sometimes even same day shipping depending on your location, music streaming, Video Streaming and more! Some people are not happy about this price increase, which is why we scoured the internet looking for ways around this.
First, if you are already an existing Prime member you have until June 16 to renew your membership to keep the $99 for another year. Any one signing up for Prime May 11th or after will have to pay the $119 a year.
The next hack is from now until May 10th, buying a few Prime Memberships as gifts, and using those vouchers each year before your membership expires. If you buy them right now, you can get them for $99. Then keep applying to your account on the DAY that your membership is expiring.
Thanks @ AFTVNews

We all love the awesome deals Dollar General has to offer with and without coupons. The “glitterers” apparently really love it as they are used to getting away with fraud. Dollar General is taking a stand to fight back against coupon “glittering” – a rosy term often used to disguise the fact that it’s fraud – plain and simple.
Cue Twisted Sister and “We’re Not Gonna Take It”.

I didn’t see this coming! Walgreens had scrapped its plan to buy Rite Aid corp after the plan was terminated by antitrust regulators. But it isn’t black and white. Walgreens will instead buy a smaller piece of the chain and it’s impact will be BIG. Some states will lose Rite Aid altogether!
Walgreens will be acquiring 1900 Rite Aid stores and become the largest drug store chain in the United States. Rite Aid is destined to become a more regional chain. How will your area be affected? These changes are slated to happen over the next 6 months.
The following states will no longer have any Rite Aid stores:
The following states will have fewer Rite Aid stores:
Colorado – 21 stores reduced to 3 stores
Connecticut – 77 stores reduced to 34 stores

Teacher Appreciation Day is in May, and is a day set aside to let your child’s teacher know how much you appreciate them and what they do. Teachers spend so much time with students each day (a good 7 hours a day!). After a school year, that’s a lot of time your child has spent with his/her teacher.
I have learned that a teacher can make or break a school year for a child. Good teachers go above and beyond their job expectations to help kids in their classroom meet goals, break barriers, and learn new things. Even if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on a gift for your child’s teacher(s), there are still things you can do for your child’s teacher that will mean just as much or more than a gift! After all, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to show someone that you appreciate them.
I have found that little things mean so much to people. If you know your child’s teacher’s favorite candy, pick up their favorite candy to send to school with your child. You can even attach a cute and funny note to go with it. Be sure to check our Pinterest board for Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas for fun printables, cute ideas, and more!
Does your child’s teacher need a cup of coffee before she can start her day? Or does she need a bottle of Coke? Whatever he/she likes, send their favorite drink to them! It will mean a lot to the teacher than you noticed what they like, and took the time to pick it up for them. You can even do a cute and quirky tag like this one from Kinder Craze.
What teacher wouldn’t love receiving their favorite snack with a sweet note? You can never go wrong with sending a snack. If you don’t know their favorite snack, send a few quarters (enough for the vending machine) with a note that their snack is on you.
Don’t underestimate the power of a handwritten note/letter! Take the opportunity to tell your child’s teacher how they have made a difference in your child’s life or even in your life. You can even have your child write a note to thank them!
Get with the other parents and organize a breakfast for the teachers. Everyone can bring a dish or parents can work together to make a few breakfast dishes. You can even send out invitations via email (to save money) to invite the teachers to the breakfast. Be sure to start it early enough for the teachers to be able to attend, eat, and make it to their classroom in time for school to start.
Like most jobs, teaching can be a thankless job. I’m sure they hear way more criticism than they do thanks. I’m pretty sure the administrators do as well. You can write an email to the teacher’s boss (administration, school board, etc.) letting them know what a difference this teacher has made in your lives during this school year. Be sure to BCC your child’s teacher so he/she knows how much you appreciate them as well.
Plants or flowers are usually inexpensive, and you can put a cute note with it like “Thanks for helping me grow”. It’s cute, sweet, and budget friendly.
I have found that there are always jobs to be done in a classroom or school. Sometimes giving your time is a huge blessing to the teachers on the receiving end of it. Offer to help in the classroom, cut things out at home, or to head up a large project for the grade your child is in. It will be appreciated, and all you gave was your time.
I like the idea of giving a teacher note cards or a note pad to send notes or to take notes. You can even get some fairly inexpensive and cute note cards or note pads at the Dollar Spot in Target.
Did you know that you can gift Redbox Movies? You can! It’s pretty inexpensive, and such a neat gift! You could even grab candy and popcorn from the Dollar Tree to put with it to make something cute like this.
Regardless of how you choose to tell your child’s teacher that you appreciate him or her, just remember that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to let someone know you appreciate them. I hope some of these ideas inspired you! Remember, Teacher’s Appreciation Day is May 8, 2018 this year. Pin this for later here.
Dollar General updated their coupon policy for the first time in years… but they leave so many questions unanswered and couponing much more confusing.
First Major update: Limit of 5 identical coupons per household per day, if no limit specified on coupon.
This is in an effort to prevent clearing of shelves on the first day of the sale.
Coupon overages will only be applied to the store merchandise remaining in the transaction and cannot be applied to gift cards, pre-paid money cards, phone cards, alcohol, or tobacco. Other restrictions may apply. Cash back will not be given.
No more cash back for coupons. Dollar General is cracking down.
Here is the really confusing part: In all situations, Dollar General reserves the right to:
Limit purchase quantities to typical retail purchase quantities and to exclude resellers/dealers.
Not accept coupons over a certain dollar amount, as well as above a certain threshold as it relates to the total transaction.
Remove any coupon or offer for any reason, including both manufacturer coupons and store discounts.
These leave many questions that need to be answered. What is the Dollar Amount DG may refuse? What is the threshold for the transaction? Why give a store discount just to possibly take it away because the manager wants to?

You asked for it and we’ve answered! If you have or are expecting a baby, saving money on diapers is always a huge concern. I have successfully couponed for and stockpiled diapers two babies in the last 4 years, so I would LOVE to share my best tips and tricks for saving on them. Here’s my top 3 tips to save on diapers!
There’s never a shortage of diaper coupons. We always see a ton of coupons for the most popular brands, especially Pampers and Huggies. Those two brands in particular are going to be your best bet when it comes to consistently finding good deals because Proctor & Gamble (Pampers) and Kimberly Clark (Huggies) Put out more coupons and promotions than any other diaper brand. Manufacturer Coupons can be found in newspaper inserts and online. You can use the coupon database (HERE) to locate the coupons simply searching for “diapers” or by a particular brand name. Our coupon printing center almost ALWAYS has coupons available to print for diapers too. GO HERE TO PRINT DIAPER COUPONS
Money Saving Tip: The majority of the time, you are going to be buying the smallest packs of diapers with your coupons. It’s typically a better deal to buy multiple small packs and use a coupon on each pack purchased rather than buying a big pack or box that would be the equivalent of multiple small packs and only using one coupon. If you aren’t sure if it’s a good deal or not, the easiest way to tell is by breaking it down to the price per diaper. You can use this formula:
The smaller size diapers have more in the pack than the bigger ones, so obviously those are going to have a lower stock up price than the larger sizes. The jumbo packs are pretty easy to know when you are getting a great deal but when you get into the larger pack sizes it can start to get trickier to know immediately. That formula can help you determine if it is. I wouldn’t waste my time unless it was 15¢ per diaper or less. Anything under 10¢ is a definite stock up deal.
You might be able to get a good price on diapers by using a coupon on diapers when they are on sale, but to really maximize your savings, look for deals that also include some type of additional reward or gift card. I’ve had great success couponing for diapers at drug stores like CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid. All of these stores frequently run promotions to earn back an additional reward for spending a certain amount on diapers and or wipes. Make sure you sign up for the Store Cards for these stores in order to access the sales prices and store rewards offers. It doesn’t cost you anything except the few minutes it takes to sign up. (You can also get good deals at Target for diapers, but in my experiences, the promotions they offer to get the best deals require you to buy the bigger boxes which typically requires a higher out of pocket cost that may not always be convenient when you are working on a limited budget.
Spend $30 on Diapers and earn back $10 in store rewards (At CVS it’s Extra Bucks, At Walgreens it would be a Register Reward and at Rite Aid it would be Plenti Points.) The amount you need to spend to get that store reward is always BEFORE any coupons are applied! Let’s just say that diapers are on sale for $10 per pack and you have coupons to save $2.00 on each pack purchased. You would be able to do something like this:
Buy 3 Diapers $10 each = $30
– (3) $2.00/1 Diaper Manufacturer Coupons
Pay OOP: $24 and get back $10 in store rewards to use on a future purchase
Final Price: $14 for all 3 packs or $4.67 per pack
That’s a pretty good price and you can make it even better if you happen to have a store coupon to use in addition to your manufacturer coupons.
For CVS– Make sure you sign up for e-mails (Create or log into your Extra Care account online and make sure you opt-in for e-mails.) CVS frequently sends out e-mail coupons for dollars of your purchase (this coupon is also applied before any manufacturer coupons) that could be used to increase your savings. Common coupons are for $4 off $20, $5 off $25 or even $6 off $30. You may also receive baby coupons that could be used at the Red Magic Coupon Machine or they may print on the bottom of your receipt ( a.k.a. CRT’s) if you have purchased baby care items there before.
For Walgreens – Check the Monthly Savings booklets (usually found near the entrance or on the ends of the aisles.) The coupons in these booklets are called IVC’s (Instant Value Coupons.) These are Walgreens Store Coupons that can be stacked with manufacturer coupons. These are cool because you can scan the coupon once and it will apply to each qualifying item purchased. If it was for $1.00 off one pack of diapers. In the example we used above, it would take of $3.00 ($1 for each pack purchased.)
Be sure to check for additional cash back options for diapers that may be available. Mobile Apps like Ibotta, Checkout 51 and Mobisave frequently have cash back rebates available to help you save even more money! They are all FREE to download and use! When it comes to saving money, every little bit helps and you might be surprised how fast you can rack up some extra savings!
If your baby is not born yet, you don’t want to go too crazy buying ahead because there can be a lot of unforeseen issues. A particular brand may not work for your baby as planned. It’s a lot easier to stockpile diapers once you can actually have some general ideas as to which brands work best for you, how many diapers you are going through on a weekly basis, how quickly your baby is growing, etc. I took a huge risk stockpiling all these Huggies (above) for baby #3, but it was an exceptional deal. They were from a local grocery store and I ended up getting all of these for about $26. Luckily my gamble paid off and I was able to use them all, but it was definitely a calculated risk! Deals like that don’t happen often, but I can say that personally had the greatest amount of success couponing for diapers consistently at CVS. Diaper deals happen there just about every other week and I always got the best deals by using my manufacturer coupons, store coupons and rolling my ECBs from week to week. Saving on diapers isn’t complicated, it just requires a little diligence and consistency. I would say, until there’s a potty training colored light at the end of the tunnel, keep picking up a few packs every time you see a fantastic deal on your brand(s) and you will never be forced to pay full price for diapers (A sure fire way to turn any couponer into a BIG BABY!)
