Somehow it is Monday and I haven’t a clue where the weekend went.
Besides remembering I had my most favorite salsa with those plantain type chips Saturday night, the rest of the weekend is a blur. As is my blog at the moment.
If you haven’t noticed, the blog is under some restructuring this week so please bear with me as we install all of the changes and then work out the kinks that come with making the changes. Like, why are there suddenly double images appearing in my posts?
Have I ever mentioned that I hate technology?
Speaking of hating technology, what would you have done if the following message popped up on your computer screen:
PRINTER NEEDS AN INTERVENTION!
No, I am not joking around.
There was no paper jam and nothing I could see on the surface being wrong. The last thing I felt like doing was rounding up a technological support group to stage an intervention for my PRINTER.
I laughed about this for a while, as in a few months. I couldn’t determine the issue and really didn’t have time to counsel a printer so I went without printing anything from home for way too long.
I can get by without printing documents but I did miss printing my coupons. I clip what I can each week from the Sunday circulars but they never really include a majority of the brands that I buy on a regular basis.
Last week I decided to check on the emotional status of my printer and suddenly he was feeling well enough to print for me. Notice I decided my printer must be male simply because it had been silent, unavailable and suddenly back to normal with no explanation.
While it can be time-consuming and annoying to have to sit and search for internet coupons, you only need to do so every few weeks since the sites usually refresh their coupons at the start of each month.
And, since you have me, I will save you some time and tell you which sites to go to for the best money-saving deals.
COUPONS SITES TO CHECK OUT FOR NOVEMBER:
Mambo Sprouts is an awesome website which offers great savings for healthy, natural and organic brands. I recently printed coupons for KidFresh, Way Better Snacks, Barbara’s Bakery Cereal and Van’s Waffles.
Applegate is awesome not only for their organic, hormone and antibiotic free products but because I can always count on printing out a bunch of their coupons each month. I usually hit a limit but after a few weeks, it lets you print again.
I always buy their turkey breast, roast beef and cheese for the little boy as well as their chicken nuggets.
Best part? These coupons double so you are saving $1.50 off each item (as long as your grocery store doubles coupons).
All of those extra dollars you end up saving can be used towards your winter running apparel and accessories.
It is 32 degrees here this morning so I am starting to brace myself for a chilly morning run.
Have a great Monday!
I NEED TO KNOW:
Are you tech savvy?
Do you print or clip your coupons on a regular basis? And, once you clip, do you actually use them or forget them at home?
Did you run the NYCM yesterday?
