Cheap restaurant meals, best buys at the grocery store

By Tara McAlister

There really are coupons for about everything. Prior to shopping at the mall on Friday I searched and printed several in store coupons and saved on each purchase! So next time you are heading out – search for coupons. Go to the same stores a lot? Make it a habit to run searches and print coupons and keep with you!

Great Deal at Through Monday 10/12, use the code FOUR to get 80% off your entire purchase. This is early in the month for them, so hopefully there will be some good certificates left. Whether you want a cheap lunch or dinner out, or you want to give a general gift certificate for someone else you can get:

$25 dining or gift certificates for $2

$10 dining or gift certificates for .60 cents

This is the Time of Year to…

Stock up on holiday foods – Stove Top, turkey, instant mashed potatoes, broth, cranberries, marshmallow, ice cream, pie shells, whipped cream, pudding. Look for great Kraft deals.

Typically it is the Best Time Of Year to Buy…

• Cars

• Houses

• Fishing Equipment

• Crystal, Silver, and Glassware

• Candy

• Baking/candy-making items (choc chips, sprinkles, vanilla, corn syrup, nuts, etc)

Create your own good Coupon Karma by passing along your unused coupons! – Just ask Darren – it really works!!
