Target coupon glitch...has it happened to you?

Go here to read the full article on Clark Howard's website. I have had several minor occurrences of this. For example: the coupons I handed them went through without a problem, but when I checked my receipt in the car, I noticed the coupon had actually charged me. In one case, it just didn't take the coupon amount off my total. Sounds like Target is on top of the situation and is reconciling any problems.

Clipsy Chicks at Chick-fil-a!

Today was our 29th Save-inar and we were so honored to be invited to Chick-fil-a corporate office! We had a blast sharing with the executive office administrators. Dana  and I have been looking forward to this for quite some time. We are HUGE chick-fil-a fans. They are awesome about accepting coupons! :) This morning it was a monsoon outside and Dana and I got DRENCHED right before we had to go set up. We both hated our hair and just felt gross, cold and wet. But, God had some blessings in store for us in spite of the weather.  Here are a few pictures from our day:
 The "Sky Box" conference room where we set up.
Me and Dana with all the ladies.
And...the man himself, Mr. Truett Cathy. He was SO SWEET! He gave us some autographed copies of his book "It's Better To Build Boys Than Mend Men". His office looks like a treehouse! This man will be 90 years old in March, and he's still working. On our way out he asked us if we would help him with something...we said, "Sure! What can we do?" He more chicken.  :)
This is Melinda. She was our little cheerleader today and gave us some insight and encouragement at lunch. Thank you Melinda! 

Thank you Carol for making arrangements for us to come! We look forward to more save-inars at Chick-fil-a!

Frugal Father's Day Finds!!!

Me and the boys had a BLAST looking for Paul's father's day gift yesterday. All together I spent just under $15.00 and you won't believe all the stuff that I got!

If you live in the area, you probably received the $10 off a $10 purchase at JCPenney. I received 2 of them, one in Paul's name and mine. They expire on the 20th. If you are on their email list, they will send you additional coupons. I had 2 for 30% off! SCORE!

Get Ready to GRILL for 25 cents!

This week at Kroger (until 4/11/10) Lawry's Seasoned and Garlic salts are on sale 10/$10. That makes them $1.00 each. Use the .75/1 coupon from the 3/21/10 Sunday Paper and score some great grilling salts for 25 cents! Not bad! These are the large size too (8 oz).
And while you're there, pick up a Krazy Jane's Mixed-Up Salt. This stuff is fabulous! My favorite recipe with this is Roasted Chicken and it's SUPER EASY!

Roasted Chicken:

1 Whole Fryer chicken (pull out the insides:)
Spray entire chicken with Olive Oil Pam
Cover and I mean COVER the entire chicken with Krazy Jane's

Bake at 250 degrees for 3 hours. Uncovered. (I just put mine in a casserole dish and toss it in the oven.)
It comes out tender, juicy and scrumptious!

Tip and Upcoming Schedule

**Cut dryer sheets in half! Use them for small loads or to freshen up clothes in a hurry. I typically buy a cheaper detergent  - example: SUN, ALL, etc., and spend my money on a GOOD fabric softener. My favorites are Downy and Snuggle. My clothes will get clean with the SUN and ALL because I use Spray n Wash (that I got for .50). The end result? Clothes that smell fabulous without spending a lot of money!

This is our schedule for April/May. If you are interested in coming to a save-inar at one of these locations, leave a comment with your email, or email

Monday, April 12 6:30 pm - Hiram
Monday, April 19 6:30 pm - Hiram/Douglas line
Wednesday, April 21, 6:30 pm - Hiram area
Saturday, April 24, 11:00 am - Powder Springs
Sunday, April 25, 6:00pm - Hiram

FREEBIES today!!!

Just got in from grocery shopping and I wanted to give a quick rundown of some freebies out there right now. Everything in this picture today was FREE! The total would have been $31.83.

Here are some of the best deals (these are in the Atlanta area, but check your store for sales)

Irish Spring 3 pk. - Kroger (buy 8 part. items, save $4.00) makes the soap $1.00 - use your coupon from 3/14 AJC for .50/1 pack. Coupon will be doubled = FREE soap

Aqua Fresh - same Kroger 8 deal, makes the toothpaste $1.00 - use 1.00/1 coupon from 3/14 AJC = FREE

Yoplait Greek Yogurt - FREE coupon in Publix flier from 3/14 AJC (I bought 3 papers, so I used all 3)

Land O Lakes spread - Publix BOGO 1.89, use .50/1 coupon (will be doubled) and score FREE butter. *If you only have 1 coupon, just purchase 1, it will be half price. 

Edge shave gel - Publix BOGO 1.97 use 1.00/1 from 3/7 AJC = FREE shave gel

Remember BOGO's are really just half price, so you can purchase an odd number. Use a coupon for EACH item too! 

***By the way, at the risk of being insanely corny, I LOVE that I scored some FREE "Irish" Spring this week in honor of St. Patty's day! I mean, come on, there's even clovers on the packaging people! :)

A WHOPPER of a deal!

My "Clipsy Chick" friend, Dana, and I ran some errands together today. We worked up quite an appetite, so we flipped through our coupons and found BOGO Whopper coupons to Burger King! We also had a FREE funnel cake sticks coupon with purchase of a value meal. We asked them if we could use them together and they said, "SURE!". CHA-CHING! Now, this isn't the kind of meal you want to eat every day, but every once in a while won't hurt ya. The funnel cake sticks were FABULOUS! I love that I have a friend who's not afraid to tear into a whopper with me! The Burger King coupons came in the weekly local paper. Look for them in Sunday papers too!

Mystery Coupon at Publix

I talked with the Publix store owner today (off Hwy 61), and found out some news about the 1 cent mystery coupon that has been in the Sunday paper...they are no longer going to put the mystery coupon in the Sunday paper. It will only come in the mid-week paper on Thursday (AJC, or local midweek paper). The 1 cent coupon will only be good on that THURSDAY. Hope that helps!
