Hi everyone.

I wanted to give an explanation for our virtual absence this week.  We are going through a medical emergency with our son.

Please read our story here,, and, if it is in your heart,  please share with others.

Thank you,

YES! We are still here!

Hello Couponers!!

Oh my gosh, I can't believe it, I am all. caught. up. Woo Hooooo!  I got an unexpected day off today, thanks to Mother Nature, and I put it to good use!

I was several weeks behind on cutting and filing, but I am officially caught up!  I just spoke with my "coupon guy" as we call him, and let him know that I am all ready for next week!

Speaking of our coupon guy, he has been so very good to us the last few weeks, we have decided (after gaining approval) to share the wealth, literally. :)

This picture is of all the EXTRA inserts I have!  They are all from the month of November, so still really good, and after keeping almost 40 of each one for us, this is what is left!

What in the world will I do with all these extras?  Why, share them with our followers of course!  That's right, who wants them??  I can bundle into smaller groups for you if you would like, if you don't want them all.  These are from the weeks of 11/2, 11/9, and 11/16.  I do not have any from this past weekend at this time, and also, just a reminder, there won't be any this next weekend due to the Holiday.

First come, first served, must pick up in Lower North Mankato.  We are GIVING these away, we are not allowed to sell them, and neither are you.  However, if you would like to give me something for my time, I can be bought with wine and/or cheese.  :)

Let me know if you want some!

I hope you all have a very happy, and safe, Thanksgiving!

Soup weather!

Good Morning Couponers!

Just wanted to touch base quick and remind everyone that Hyvee is having a 2-day sale, and today is the second day!  If you haven't done so already, get to your favorite Hyvee store and pick up a 5lb bag of potatoes for just .99 (limit 1)!

Select Hyvee brand soups are only .39, no limit, and it is definately soup weather!

I hope everyone has a great weekend. As for me, I think I'm going to go shoot some squirrels to put in my soup!

Happy Fall (even though it is still technically summer)!

We are still here!

Good Morning Couponers!

I just wanted to touch base, and apologize for my long absence, yet again.

I want you all to know that we love couponing, and we love doing these blog posts, and the Facebook page, and we are not going away!  Truth be told, I have been fighting a chronic illness for quite some time, and sometimes, it takes all I have just to get through a routine day, not to mention anything extra like our couponing stuff.  I am fine, it is not life threatening, I just needed some med adjustments, and now I am on way back to 100%.

I also want to thank you, our followers.  During my recent illness, I have still kept tabs on the facebook page. It makes me so very happy to know that you all are still out there, couponing it up, even in my absence.  It makes me smile every time I see someone post a picture, or a deal, that they got. So thank you all, for sticking with us, and keeping the spirit of saving money alive.

I am spending the entire day today getting caught up on clipping and filing, and I promise you, the next time we go to the store, it WILL be epic!

Happy Friday!!

Hi Friends!

I am doing some clipping today, and I just came across my June issue of All You.  I just wanted to let you all know about an exciting article I found in there!  It is basically everything you need to know about couponing, in a simple 5 page article!

Now, granted, reading this article will not be nearly as much fun as learning from us, but it is a really good startup article.

Check it out!

Two months since my last post?  Wow.  While I do apologize for my long absence, I will not make excuses for it.  Suffice to say, sometimes life just gets in the way.

We are still here, and stronger than ever!

You have probably been hearing the radio ads for the big event tomorrow night, but here it is.  I have been asked to speak again!  Yay.  This time, to expecting mothers.  The event is called Hey Baby, Don't Drink, and it is a collaborative effort between the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS), Pub 500, and Radio Mankato.

This is a free event, open to the public. It begins at 5pm, and is being held at Pub 500.  Bryan and I will take the stage around 6:30.

So, if you are expecting, or know someone who is, come see us at Pub 500 tomorrow night!

And as always, Happy Couponing!

Ok, so you all learned something about me this morning....I am human.

Lucky for me, TJ and Lisa are professionals (or maybe they just play them on the radio), and helped me make a quick recovery.  :)
