No more trips to the grocery store and still saving $..It's true!

Going to the grocery store can be difficult and frustrating for some people. Some may have mobility problems or just not have the time and energy to get your shopping done.  Or it is simply not a favorite task for many.  I am here to help.

 Each week I will have you give me your shopping list and I will do the work for you. You will be asked to send me your shopping list through email and to be as specific as possible. Of course sales change, so you will be asked to not be brand specific.   Your groceries are purchased at the store of your choice and delivered to your door.

I will price match items on your list and find you the best deals possible.
The only out of pocket expense will be my time  ( which includes price matching, clipping coupons, shopping and delivery). This fee is on a sliding scale from $25- 50, depending on the order.

With my price matching I will save you more money than you ever have before !
I am offering a few different things.
1. I can come to your home and walk you through how to successfully come out of the grocery store with extra $ in your pocket.
2. I can come with you to the store and guide you through a few shopping trips.
3. I will do your shopping for you. You select the products and I price match to find the best deals. I guarantee to save you more than you ever have before.
Email me at smalltownsavingmomma@gmail.com
to set up an appointment.
Even after paying me for my time you will still save $ ! I guarantee it!
 Email me at smalltownsavingmomma@gmail.com if you are interested

CVS shopping trip 1/1/12 starting the year off right!

CVS is one of my favorite stores to shop at for household items and baby products. They have a program called extrabucks rewards . Ever notice those big red kiosks in every cvs store? Most people think they are price checkers. They do that too but more importantly they hold valuable coupons to use in the store. Simply scan your cvs barcode under the scanner and viola coupons spit out! This is Ethan's favorite part of the trip. Also,  they never tell you but you can scan twice ;)

Register  your card online at cvs.com and you can track the spending. Head over there to learn more about the program ( if you want all the facts). They frequently give out special offers such as $5 off of $25 that can be sent directly to your card ( no coupon printing) and used in store. You do have to check frequently to see if something special like this is sitting in your online account. They don't send an email , so its up to you to stay on it! Of course some restrictions apply so check the fine print.

Before a trip to CVS I check the circular and see what items they have that are part of "extracare rewards" for that week. This week they have " Spend $30 on select items and get a $10 card back" . I would say 9 out of 10 times I buy all of my paper towels, toilet paper , dish soap and baby diapers at CVS with a fantastic extrabuck offer.

I always have some extrabucks left over from last week to apply towards my trip and that will be reflected in my trips . If you are a newbee and starting with none you will surely leave with some! I don't think anyone should ever be without extrabucks in his or her wallet.

Today's trip: 1/1/12
It's a new year and I accrued some free extrabucks from purchases made in 2011 so the magic machine spit me out a $4.50 off extrabuck reward . This can  be used just as cash  would . A great bonus to the trip!

Transaction #1
76 count pampers cruisers reg 22.99- 4.00
12 roll bounty paper towels reg. 14.99-5.00
800 sheet printer paper reg. 7.29-3.29
Total  reg price before savings = $45.27
total after sale price =  $32.98
                                    - $4.50 surpise annual reward
                                    - $5 off of $25 sent to my card
                                    - $5.99 extrabucks from last week
                                    - $1 bounty manuf coupon
                                    - $4 pampers manuf coupon
new total = $12.49 + .29 tax
savings =  $32.78 + $10 gift card for next time! these were part of the spend $30 get $10 deal
Bringing my grand total to $2.49 for $45.27 worth of household and baby boy necessities! sweet right?




                                 

Welcome to Savings Central!

Happy New year 2012! My new years resolution is to save even more money than I did in 2011. I  will share all of my daily deals with my followers. I hope I can help each of you save a little more this year! Let's start off with the best sites for coupon printing ( in my opinion) .
coupons.com, smartsource.com , redplum.com and couponnetwork.com  - These are all manufacturers coupons (unless they specify a store, which rarely happens) . You can print each coupon twice . They typically re load the coupons at the beginning of the month. However, throughout the month new ones pop up all the time. The trick is to stay aware of what coupons are up there and try out different zip codes. Some of my favorite zips are 12345, 90210, 33033, 30303.

**couponnetwork sometimes allows you to print more than 2 and if you are print through target.com sometimes you can get redplum and smartsource coupons a few extra times.

Facebook.com is another great tool for printing great coupons. If you "like" certain brands they sometimes run facebook coupon promotions and you can get 2 prints this way.

Target.com - as I said earlier, they have both target specific coupons and manufacturers coupons on this site. The best part about target coupons is that you can stack them with a manufacturers coupon, for the best possible deal. For example, If you have one target coupons for $2 off lays chips and a manufacturers coupons from the Sunday paper for $1 off lays chips, you can put them together(stack them) and get $3 off of one bag.

Company/Brand websites- Some of the ones I like best are stoneyfield.com, kraft.com,hormel.com,kelloggs.com,beechnut.com etc. On the site you need to look for the promotions section and will most likely need to sign up for emails. You can sign up, print and then cancel if you don't want to continue getting emails. I like the emails because it allows me to see when new savings are added.
 

I have a few other way I randomly find printable coupons, but these are the basics. In my blog posts I will be your guide to the latest and greatest deal and coupon available. Stay tuned!

No more trips to the grocery store and still saving $..It's true!

Going to the grocery store can be difficult and frustrating for some people. Some may have mobility problems or just not have the time and energy to get your shopping done.  Or it is simply not a favorite task for many.  I am here to help.

 Each week I will have you give me your shopping list and I will do the work for you. You will be asked to send me your shopping list through email and to be as specific as possible. Of course sales change, so you will be asked to not be brand specific.   Your groceries are purchased at the store of your choice and delivered to your door.

I will price match items on your list and find you the best deals possible.
The only out of pocket expense will be my time  ( which includes price matching, clipping coupons, shopping and delivery). This fee is on a sliding scale from $25- 50, depending on the order.

With my price matching I will save you more money than you ever have before !
I am offering a few different things.
1. I can come to your home and walk you through how to successfully come out of the grocery store with extra $ in your pocket.
2. I can come with you to the store and guide you through a few shopping trips.
3. I will do your shopping for you. You select the products and I price match to find the best deals. I guarantee to save you more than you ever have before.
Email me at smalltownsavingmomma@gmail.com
to set up an appointment.
Even after paying me for my time you will still save $ ! I guarantee it!

CVS shopping trip 1/1/12 starting the year off right!

CVS is one of my favorite stores to shop at for household items and baby products. They have a program called extrabucks rewards . Ever notice those big red kiosks in every cvs store? Most people think they are price checkers. They do that too but more importantly they hold valuable coupons to use in the store. Simply scan your cvs barcode under the scanner and viola coupons spit out! This is Ethan's favorite part of the trip. Also,  they never tell you but you can scan twice ;)

Register  your card online at cvs.com and you can track the spending. Head over there to learn more about the program ( if you want all the facts). They frequently give out special offers such as $5 off of $25 that can be sent directly to your card ( no coupon printing) and used in store. You do have to check frequently to see if something special like this is sitting in your online account. They don't send an email , so its up to you to stay on it! Of course some restrictions apply so check the fine print.

Before a trip to CVS I check the circular and see what items they have that are part of "extracare rewards" for that week. This week they have " Spend $30 on select items and get a $10 card back" . I would say 9 out of 10 times I buy all of my paper towels, toilet paper , dish soap and baby diapers at CVS with a fantastic extrabuck offer.

I always have some extrabucks left over from last week to apply towards my trip and that will be reflected in my trips . If you are a newbee and starting with none you will surely leave with some! I don't think anyone should ever be without extrabucks in his or her wallet.

Today's trip: 1/1/12
It's a new year and I accrued some free extrabucks from purchases made in 2011 so the magic machine spit me out a $4.50 off extrabuck reward . This can  be used just as cash  would . A great bonus to the trip!

Transaction #1
76 count pampers cruisers reg 22.99- 4.00
12 roll bounty paper towels reg. 14.99-5.00
800 sheet printer paper reg. 7.29-3.29
Total  reg price before savings = $45.27
total after sale price =  $32.98
                                    - $4.50 surpise annual reward
                                    - $5 off of $25 sent to my card
                                    - $5.99 extrabucks from last week
                                    - $1 bounty manuf coupon
                                    - $4 pampers manuf coupon
new total = $12.49 + .29 tax
savings =  $32.78 + $10 gift card for next time! these were part of the spend $30 get $10 deal
Bringing my grand total to $2.49 for $45.27 worth of household and baby boy necessities! sweet right?




                                 

Welcome to Savings Central!

Happy New year 2012! My new years resolution is to save even more money than I did in 2011. I  will share all of my daily deals with my followers. I hope I can help each of you save a little more this year! Let's start off with the best sites for coupon printing ( in my opinion) .
coupons.com, smartsource.com , redplum.com and couponnetwork.com  - These are all manufacturers coupons (unless they specify a store, which rarely happens) . You can print each coupon twice . They typically re load the coupons at the beginning of the month. However, throughout the month new ones pop up all the time. The trick is to stay aware of what coupons are up there and try out different zip codes. Some of my favorite zips are 12345, 90210, 33033, 30303.

**couponnetwork sometimes allows you to print more than 2 and if you are print through target.com sometimes you can get redplum and smartsource coupons a few extra times.

Facebook.com is another great tool for printing great coupons. If you "like" certain brands they sometimes run facebook coupon promotions and you can get 2 prints this way.

Target.com - as I said earlier, they have both target specific coupons and manufacturers coupons on this site. The best part about target coupons is that you can stack them with a manufacturers coupon, for the best possible deal. For example, If you have one target coupons for $2 off lays chips and a manufacturers coupons from the Sunday paper for $1 off lays chips, you can put them together(stack them) and get $3 off of one bag.

Company/Brand websites- Some of the ones I like best are stoneyfield.com, kraft.com,hormel.com,kelloggs.com,beechnut.com etc. On the site you need to look for the promotions section and will most likely need to sign up for emails. You can sign up, print and then cancel if you don't want to continue getting emails. I like the emails because it allows me to see when new savings are added.
 

I have a few other way I randomly find printable coupons, but these are the basics. In my blog posts I will be your guide to the latest and greatest deal and coupon available. Stay tuned!
