Grand Plié a la Seconde—Pas de Bourreé—Glissade—Jeté—Assemblé

*Grand Plié a la Seconde is the founding step, the beginning. The opening act of a shopper’s plan is the store, the retailer, and the sales within.

*Pas de Bourreé are the steps between; clipping the coupons, watching the blogs, matching the ads.

*Glissade is the prep. Making a list and organizing a plan creates a graceful interlude for the main event.

*Jeté, the flying leap; the actual shopping trip.

*Assemblé, where everything comes together.

The finale takes place at center stage with the register, the sale, the coupons,

and the shopper taking a final bow. Let us dance our way to savings!

$6 off 2 Schick Disposable Razors has this coupon and walmart carries a 12ct. bonus pack for $1.97 each! This is a $2.06 MM, but it's also a YMMV. It's a Freebie for sure, just make sure you have enough in you cart to cover the overage since the coupon states: "no cash back if value exceeds retail price."

Good luck and enjoy!!

Extreme Couponing: Sept. 28 10/9c

The new season of Extreme Couponing Premiers on Wensday, Sept. 28!
Watch the Savings!! 

**Although, please keep in mind Shelf Clearing and mis-using coupons is unmoral, unethical, and unfair to other couponers**
Remember Reality TV is not always real! The stores are ready for this massive haul, and real couponers don't do these kinds of haul every week. TLC asks them to do the biggest haul they can possibly do for the show.

Tips on Couponing and Where to Find Them

#1. Set up a coupon email account. If you have a yahoo account for your original email account, go to Gmail and make the coupon account. This way you can stay logged-in all the time and check it regularly. You will get a lot of spam and junk, along with plenty of good deals. All these emails will clog you original account and you may not find the email from aunt sophie, or you might delete it by accident. So A separate account is very good!

#2. Start small. Stick to one store, learn it inside and out, then move on to another store and get really comfortable with that and so on... If you take on too much you could get overwhelmed, which is the number 2 reason people stop couponing. Number one is laziness, lol.

#3. Join a blog/site. You can press the follow button now! LOL :P ... My blog will continue to give tips, recent sale, must haves, and freebies, but not all of them. Your best bet is my #1 Fav coupon site, hosted by Mr. Coupon himself!

#4. Learn when to hold coupons or fold them. I used to throw away 90% of my coupon because I would never use them because I thought I couldn't without spending more money than I had. Now I keep 90% of my coupons because two weeks after I've had them, there might be a sale that makes those unreachable items FREE! By getting some vicks cough drops free plus overage I was able to get some plug in airfresheners for pennies on the dollar!! Fold your coupons when they expire or you know without a doubt you will not use them. I don't have kids, and I don't have cats, so should I ever buy cat food or diapers? NO!!

#5. Know where to find coupons. Well, you can't use them if you don't know where to find them! :) so here's a list...
Sunday Newspapers
All You mag(found@walmart)
And Online! @ :
#6. Sign up for Newsletters. It may mean a lot of spam, but some awesome coupons come too!
Lastly because I'm too tired!
#7. Tell companies you love or hate their products. They want feed back! And they want you to buy their products, so they'll more than likely send you coupons!
Ok, I'm done... goodnight all... or is it good morning?... *snores*
