The Good News Fairy is Here!

Hello to all you Coupon Queens in Chattanooga!

I was checking out some different blogs yesterday and I found another Chattanoogan who loves coupon shopping. I noticed on her Publix post that she used a Walgreens RR at the Publix in Ooltewah. Now we know that the Publix on East Brainered will only accept other major grocery stores as competitors, so I asked her about the Ooltewah store. This was her reply:

Hey Heather!
The Publix in Ooltewah just started taking them this week. I ask the cashier during check-out yesterday and she said they are taking all competitor's coupons now as long as it is a major brand and not a store brand. I wish I would have had some with me but oh well I know now for next week! It will be only another 15 minutes or so up the road for you to come to Ooltewah.
Becky

Check out her shopping trip HERE!

So guess what?!?! I'm headin' to Ooltewah for my next Publix shopping trip!

My Coupon Filing System

I just got off the phone with my good friend, Stacy, who was asking me about how I keep track of my coupons. I used to spend hours on end clipping coupons and trying to organize them, but I learned a really great way to file (found on couponmom.com) and thought I would share it with you!

I found this awesome hanging file system at Target! It is my new favorite thing, and guess what --- it was only $10!









Here's how it works:

As you can see, it has a pretty little lid that flips open. Target has all sorts of these with an array of different colors and designs.

Included in this system was: 10 hanging file folders, 10 Tabs, and 10 Tab inserts.






Here is how I labeled the different sections:

- January
- February
- March
- April
- May
- IPQs (any I don't want to clip yet)
- Coupon Books (Coupon book mailers, etc.)
- Monthly Store Coupon Books (Publix, CVS, Etc.)
- Weekly Store Ads
- Misc.

There is also enough room in the system to keep a pad of paper for making lists and a zipper bag with paper clips, post-it notes, scissors, etc.

You will need to purchase about 20-25 manila folders (relatively inexpensive) to put in the monthly folders. Label one manila folder for each Sunday of the month. Here's how my folder from January looks:

Instead of clipping all of your coupons each week, just slip your inserts into the allotted week and, voila, you're done!
Most blog and coupon sites tell you which month, week and insert a certain coupon came from. For example, if you notice a blog that says Lysol $1/1 - 1/4 SS - you will know to look in the January hanging file. Then look in the 1/4 manila folder for the SS. Pretty simple, huh?



I only have folders labeled for January - May, but by the time June runs around, most of the coupons from the Jan. and other earlier months should be long past expired. Just reassign those for your new months.

Later on I'll show you my travel-sized expandable folder that I take with me everywhere I go!

Another Day, Another Dollar ... Saved, That Is!

My sister and nephew are up visiting from Atlanta this week, so my mom suggested a fun-filled day at the Chattanooga Zoo. While a bit small in comparison to the Atlanta and Knoxville Zoos, this 6 acre jungle is the perfect size for children of all ages! My two-year old nephew, Eli, was able to wander about through the entire facility without being confined to his stroller. In just under a few hours we were able to visit with all of the cuddly (and some not so cuddly!) animals - and complete our journey just short of nap time!

Admission is very reasonable at:
Adults $6
Seniors $4
Children Ages 3-15 $3
Two and Under is FREE!

We arrived today ready to pay the full admission price, but it just seems like lately we can't go anywhere without finding an unexpected deal! It turns out that Wednesdays are $1 days! My mom (Thanks a bunch Mommy!) only had to pay $3 for us three adults, and Eli was free!

The next time you're searching for a fun-filled activity to do with your little ones, just head out to the Chattanooga Zoo! The price is right, the kids will love it, and we adults get the joy of watching them squawking at rare birds and going bananas over the monkeys! It's a win-win for all!
