We needed some body wash and I told my husband about the deal at Rite Aid you posted where we could get free Irish Spring (deal no longer available). He said he would help me out and go get it with my coupons. He came home excited he saved us money and handed me the receipt. See anything anything wrong with this picture?

He went to CVS and spent 13 bucks on 4 bottles of body wash!

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: 80th Birthday Celebration

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Johanna:

Hi Collin! Just like you, my grandmother is a great part of my life and I love her dearly. She moved to the U.S. for a better life when I was only a baby but she has been very present in my life. She is such a lovely woman, so much so that my friends and my sisters’ friends also call her Abuelita (grandma). So for the celebration of her 80th birthday we wanted to show her how much we love her. We planned for months for a secret birthday party. Even my uncle and his family came from Colombia (where we are from). It was the first time in 20+ years that the family was going to be together.

My grandma loves the casinos so what better theme than casino night!

As a great Hipster, I was looking to save as much as possible on the decorations so Dollar Tree was my place to go. I am very crafty, and very DIY (Pinterest saved the day). I watched how to make cookies on YouTube and practiced for weeks (my coworkers were very happy to get free cookies). I even made a Casino sign (it took hours and a couple of broken nails)!

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Saving Money by Refilling Your Own Printer Ink

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Kimberly:

Hey Collin! I just wanted to share how I save money on ink. I got brave and decided to refill my own ink. At first the idea was daunting. I watched some how to videos on YouTube and with some practice, now I am pro. It costs me about $10 for a black ink refill kit and $13 for color on Amazon. The kits provide enough ink to refill the cartridges 4-7 times! That is hundreds of dollars of savings for me! I also found that if I hold the reset button on my printer for ten seconds it resets the ink levels and I don’t get a low ink warning. :)

Happy Friday: Frugal Birthday Surprises

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Callie:

I am so grateful for all the deals you post! As a sixteen year old girl in a family of six, it’s hard to find (and afford) presents for everyone in my family without having to save up all year! :) When my dad’s birthday comes on Groundhog day, I’m always scrambling to find a present for him, usually out of ideas from Christmas.

This year, I had absolutely nothing for him, and this morning, when he was opening up presents that my sisters had made or bought with their Christmas money, I felt bad. Then, I saw your post about the $10 Dunkin’ Donuts bonus. I went and searched all our gift cards until I found a DD one (harder than it sounds ;)), and downloaded the app on my iPod. When the bonus appeared, along with the free drink for signing up, I was able to take him out on a daddy-daughter date!! We rented a movie from Redbox using a free code you posted, and got the free coffee from Chick-fil-a. In addition to that, we had won a $25 Moe’s gift card from a contest; therefore, the whole family was able to eat dinner, get coffee, order two dozen doughnuts, and watch a movie for about $1.80 total. Plus, I still have the free DD drink coupon for my dad to use one morning on his way to work! Not a bad birthday present.

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Score Freebies & Deals When New Restaurants & Stores Open

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Jamie:

I’ve read a number of books and I am a member of a number of couponing and frugal living websites and blogs. One suggestion I don’t think I’ve seen before, in any book or website, is to watch out for new stores and restaurants that are opening up. In the last year, I have had two free dinners, free coffee drinks and smoothies for my family, and as my photo above shows, I have a coupon book for a free coffee each week for a year.

It seems that usually a day or two before grand opening, restaurants have a trial run to work out the glitches, and they invite volunteers to come so they can practice. I found out about some of these in our local newspaper, but the best resource is to watch their Facebook page or you could also contact the manager or owner and ask. It’s also great to be one of the first customers in the door on grand opening day, there’s usually something special for you! Hope this helps other people!

Happy Friday: Top 2% of CVS Savers

Sent from reader, Jacque:

I wanted to share a recent email I received from CVS. This has been my first year attempting to coupon after welcoming our third baby in four years! I could not have made this happen without your fantastic website and the support of my family. My parents and grandparents collect their coupon inserts and pass them on to me so I can save the most.

Come on though, the top 2% of savers?! Thanks for all you do to help families everywhere get the most benefit from couponing! Here’s to 2015! My goal? Make it into the top 1% ;)

Happy Friday: Rewarded w/ Coupons for Saying Thanks

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Melinda:

A couple of years ago, you posted a note from a reader who had taken your advice and written some favorite food companies about their products to see if they would send coupons in the mail.

This is the second year I’ve taken the time to write a long list of companies and the second time Earthbound Farm has sent some very generous coupons. Some companies say no, but Earthbound Farm sent two free product coupons (up to $5.99 value), two $1 off any product coupons, a $0.75 off any product coupon, and a $1/2 products coupon. All of the items in the photo were less than $0.91 at Meijer this week after the coupons. Plus, I still have more coupons left! We are just starting to get the mail coupons so there are some surprises in store, but I would never have thought to do this if you hadn’t suggested it on your blog. Thanks!

Happy Friday: Paying it Forward in 2015

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Deanna:

I recently nominated a family for the Franz Bread “Season of Giving” promotion. I was overcome with emotion when Franz selected the family I had submitted! They were so needing the blessing and encouragement of the check Franz delivered to their door, as well as 2 big bags of Franz products!!!

Little did I realize, because the family I nominated was selected, I was sent 52 (a year’s worth) of Franz product coupons. This for me was a sweet reminder when we choose to do the right thing for someone, the blessing continues on. How awesome!

Remember in 2015 to pay it forward when you can. It always comes back in unexpected ways! I plan now to send a few of these to others I know need a little love.

Happy Friday: Vintage Store Coupon

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Lori:

I come from a long line of thrifty shoppers and was thrilled when I came across a super old coupon while browsing through an heirloom cookbook recently. The women in my family have a tradition of giving “The Settlement Cook Book” to their daughters when they get married (although mine will go to my son.)

It’s a cookbook that not only has recipes but advice on “efficient marketing”. A coupon for 7 cents off Grape-nuts with an expiration date of October 31, 1975 was stuck in the book. It was fun to see a really old coupon and it made me feel proud that I’m carrying on the tradition of “efficient marketing”.

Happy Friday: Couponing to Give Back

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Jessica:

This is a small shout-out to my wonderful sister and all of the other silent couponers out there who give back to their communities, especially around the holiday season. My sister, with help from our mom, just donated over 70 toiletry items to a local shelter for runaway youth. My sister couponed all year long to collect these items and just donated them to kids who really don’t have much. The workers at the shelter couldn’t believe how much was donated. Here is a picture of everything she gave.

I wanted to write this just to show everyone how awesome couponers like my sister are because of how willing they are to give back. I hope this inspires others to give to different local charities. Even simple toiletries can mean a lot to people. Happy couponing to all!
