Before I get to the actual recipe, you’re probably wondering what makes tea a “super” tea. A main ingredient in this recipe is one of Tetley’s vitamin-infused Super Teas, Immunity Peach & Orange Super Tea. It’s packed with 20% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C, which helps to support the immune system. It’s a “super” tea!

How I Prepare for a Couponing Trip

I oftentimes get asked how I save so much money on my grocery trips. Today I'm telling you a little about my favorite store and exactly how I prepare for a couponing trip, so you can do it too. #couponrich #couponing #extremecouponing #couponmom

Since I started posting my grocery store couponing hauls on Instagram, I’ve been getting a lot of feedback on how great it is and what amazing savings I’m getting, and many people wishing they could do what I do. You can and I’m going to give you some tips!


Yesterday was my latest haul and while it wasn’t my biggest, I still kicked butt. In fact, I saved a lot more than I had expected. Even the cashier and people in line behind me were amazed and in awe.

In fact, I got into a little conversation with the woman behind me about where I get my coupons and just the store’s general coupon policy. She was asking me so many questions and I was trying to answer them all, while at the same time trying to make sure the cashier didn’t skip over any of my coupons (they sometimes stick together), haha. So this inspired me to write a post just giving you some info about how I do my couponing and what I do to prepare for a trip to the grocery store.

Store’s Coupon Policy

Now, I’ll tell you, when I lived in FL I wasn’t as coupon rich as I am now. I still used coupons, but didn’t save nearly as much as I do now living in NJ. The reason is simple. FL stores do not double coupons or at least none of the one’s in my area did. But now that I’ve discovered ShopRite and its amazing coupon policy, I’m able to make my coupons go further. So my first suggestion is to check out the coupon policies for the stores in your general area.

I oftentimes get asked how I save so much money on my grocery trips. Today I'm telling you a little about my favorite store and exactly how I prepare for a couponing trip, so you can do it too. #couponrich #couponing #extremecouponing #couponmom

I love ShopRite because they have digital coupons that you electronically add to your shopper card, and many of those coupons are duplicates of the exact same coupons that can be printed online. And for each item you buy you can use both a digital coupon and a printed manufacturer coupon. That alone is double savings.

To make it even sweeter, for any coupon with a face value less than $1.00, ShopRite will double it (given it’s a coupon that allows for doubling and in my experience most of them are). This means if I have a coupon worth $0.75, ShopRite doubles it, saving me $1.50.

THIS, my friends, is how I save the bulk of my money using coupons. It all boils down to the store’s coupon policy.

Store Ad

Now that I know what I’m looking at in terms of the store’s coupon policy, my next task is to browse the store’s weekly sales ad. This is where I start every single week. I look for and simply take note of sales of items that my family enjoys and uses. I find that looking through the sales first makes it a little easier for me to gather what I need to get the savings.

Coupons

To be coupon rich you have to have coupons, right? I get asked often (even in the grocery store) where I get all my coupons and quite simply, I print them at home. I haven’t gotten a Sunday newspaper, which offers tons of great coupons, in about a year. But if you do get a Sunday newspaper, then you’re more ahead of the couponing game than you think.

Personally, all of my coupons are printed online and the majority are printed from InboxDollars. What I love about InboxDollars is that for each coupon I print and actually redeem, I earn $0.10. That’s not something offered by other coupon sites.

I don’t factor these earnings into my total haul savings when I post them because it takes a little while for these to show up. They aren’t added to your InboxDollars account until the store sends the coupons to the manufacturer for payment and when that’s done varies from store to store. On average it takes about 30 days for me to see these earnings show up in my account.

Rebates

Aside from coupons, I also save money by submitting my shopping receipts for rebates. I use Ibotta, Saving Star, Checkout 51 and MobiSave the most. The great thing about Saving Star is that just like ShopRite’s digital coupons, Saving Star rebates are sometimes the exact same as the coupons I can print.

For example, yesterday I purchased Dial body wash. I printed a coupon valued at $1.50, ShopRite had the same digital coupon, and Saving Star had the same rebate. That’s $4.50 in savings. How much did the body wash cost? $3.49 – I got it for free plus made an extra $1.01!

The other great thing about Saving Star is that I can link my ShopRite shopper card number and the rebates will automatically be processed within a few days of my purchase. So this is one app I don’t have to manually submit my receipt to, like I have to do with Ibotta, Checkout 51 and MobiSave. But I love them all and use them all the time!

Shopping List

My last step before heading to the store is preparing a shopping list. After browsing the sales ad, seeing what coupons are available for printing and seeing what rebates are available, I can determine which items I can get a great deal on.

I oftentimes get asked how I save so much money on my grocery trips. Today I'm telling you a little about my favorite store and exactly how I prepare for a couponing trip, so you can do it too. #couponrich #couponing #extremecouponing #couponmom

My shopping list consists of what the item is, along with its regular or sale price. I then detail where all my savings are coming from, whether a printed coupon, ShopRite digital coupon, or rebate. This helps me figure out what my final price is for each item. I also use it as a tool to ensure I have all the printed and digital coupons ready to go. I mean, I’m doing all this work to save as much as I can and when every penny counts, I have to make sure I’ve got everything I need when I get to the store.

And to be honest, if I didn’t make a list I’d get to the store and forget half of what I wanted to get.

In a nut shell, this is how I coupon and save the money I do. I really only do major couponing like this at ShopRite, but do still coupon at other stores. Other store coupon policies just aren’t as great as ShopRite’s!

Are you ready to get started? Check out InboxDollars and the rebate apps to see what kinds of savings are available and get to it!

Christmas Clothespin Magnets Add Character Around the Holidays

These Christmas Clothespin Magnets from One More Sunshine add a little spark of character to your home or office during the holiday season!

~ Thank you to One More Sunshine for providing product for my  review. Opinions are 100% my own.~

As I’m sure you know, the Christmas holiday is creeping up and will be here before we know it. Christmas is actually my favorite holiday and one of the reasons why is because of the amazing decorations. It’s just not Christmas without all the decor.

Now, I don’t go as crazy as National Lampoon’s Christmas decorations, but I love the lights, colors and so much more. One memory I have about Christmas at my grandma’s house is all of the Christmas cards she’d receive. In her hallway she would take all of the cards she’d gotten from friends and family, and tape them along the wall. It was expected every year and I simply knew it to be part of her holiday decorations.

When Mary from One More Sunshine reached out to me, showcasing her unique Christmas Clothespin Magnets, I immediately thought of my grandma’s Christmas card wall. To save the integrity of the wall (I remember seeing a few tape spots after she took them all down), it would have been nice to have Mary’s decorative clothespins to hang all those cards with.

The clothespins themselves are your standard size clothespins that Mary works her magic on and adds her own spin to them. The holiday theme and colors, along with accessories like gems, buttons and ribbons, provide a unique and custom look. I simply love the uniqueness of these Christmas Clothespin Magnets and the character they add to my home around the holidays.

Keeping with my grandma’s tradition of hanging all her Christmas cards on her wall, I’ll be using my Christmas Clothespin Magnets this year to hang up my own. Just to see how it would work (if the stores can carry Christmas decor now, there’s no reason I can’t play around with some, right?), I hung a piece of twine on my wall and using the clothespins, clipped some small family stockings and photos from past Christmas’.

I think it looks absolutely adorable and once it comes time to put up the rest of my Christmas decorations, I think I’ll add another row underneath this one for additional photos and Christmas cards. I’m more than happy to make time to continue a Christmas tradition of my grandma’s.

If hanging things on the wall isn’t your style, never fear. These Christmas Clothespins are magnets too! I took one of our small stockings and one of our past family Christmas cards and tried the clothespin magnets on my refrigerator.

There are just so many different things these Christmas Clothespin Magnets can be used for around the holidays. While I’ll be using mine to hang Christmas cards and photos at home, they can also be used to hold kid’s artwork.

Or they can be used in the office to hold reminders or to-do’s. I loved decorating my cubicle around the holidays when I worked in an office.

Or use them to hold your grocery list on the refrigerator.

Or even use them to clip your sunglasses to the sun visor in your car.

Spread some holiday cheer everywhere you go! No matter what you use them for, or where, their unique design will add special holiday character around Christmas time.

#SharetheLuv with Double the Savings on Luvs Diapers

There are two upcoming opportunities to save on Luvs diapers. Check your Sunday newspaper on September 25th and October 9th for a $2 Luvs coupon on both days! That's double the savings! #SharetheLuv

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

There is no question that buying for baby’s everyday needs can get pretty expensive. Just yesterday I went grocery shopping and purchased almost 60 jars of baby food. 60! Adding diapers into the mix, which I also bought yesterday, the register total just kept climbing.

We are basically a one income household so when I buy everyday essentials for the family, I do anything and everything I can to save money. Where I save the most money is by couponing and I always make time to browse for relevant savings. Whether it’s adding electronic coupons to a store card, printing online coupons, or clipping coupons from the Sunday paper, coupons are a really big help in sticking to my budget.

There are two upcoming opportunities to save on Luvs diapers. Check your Sunday newspaper on September 25th and October 9th for a $2 Luvs coupon on both days! That's double the savings! #SharetheLuv

And if there’s one type of coupon that I love the most, it’s diaper coupons. There’s no getting out of purchasing diapers, no matter how much they cost. And as far as diaper coupons go, I get really excited when they’re for diaper brands I love and trust, like Luvs.

Why I choose Luvs diapers:

  • Contour to my little one’s curves and movements throughout her daily activities.
  • Nice snug fit without compromising softness and comfort.
  • Large, refastenable stretch tabs make for easy, yet secure fastening.
  • Super Absorbent Leakguards and NightLock Plus lock away and absorb more wetness than regular Luvs, ensuring we both get a good night’s sleep.
  • Luvs offers a Money Back Guarantee if at any point I’m dissatisfied with leakage protection.
  • I save up to $150 annually, compared to other leading diaper brands, and this doesn’t include any additional coupon savings.

Now for the exciting news! In the Sunday newspaper on September 25th, you can expect a $2 coupon valid on any one package of Luvs diapers. But that’s not all! Again on October 9th, there’s going to be another $2 coupon for the same thing! Woohoo! Bring on double the savings! The couponer in me is doing a little happy dance in anticipation of these newspapers coming.

Many diaper coupons have restrictions as far as the size you have to purchase, but in this case the only restriction is that they can’t be used on trial/travel size. That means you can use these coupons on a large box of Luvs or even one of the smaller packages. And just a heads up, each coupon is valid for 2 weeks so don’t let them expire! I sure won’t!

Do you have a little one who wears Luvs diapers?
