If you’re wondering what coupons are going to be in the Sunday inserts this week, you can check out this link here. Keep in mind that the dollar amounts of the coupons vary by area. For example, last week some areas got $2/1 All laundry detergent coupons, but my area only get $1/1. Fortunately, I was able to snag some from My Coupon Hunter (yes, she still has some of those available!)
One of the tricks to stockpiling is being able to use coupons to buy several items at once when they go on sale. Knowing the sale trends and cycles is helpful because if you wait until you actually find out that the item is on sale, usually it’s too late to buy coupons because either everything you want is gone or they have gone up in “price.” My Coupon Hunter also has the new coupons available already! From my experience, turn around time is quick. Plus, she doesn’t have minimum purchase requirements, doesn’t put limits on quantities, and shipping is reasonable. You also don’t have to worry about inserts piling up all over your house because the coupons are already clipped and you get exactly what you want and need. You can check out all of the coupons that she has available here (click on “New Coupons” to see the latest additions).
Here are some of the highlights that I think are “hot” coupons. I have included some possible uses for these coupons. This is based on previous experiences with sales that have typically happened at this time of year, but I can’t guarantee that there will be the same sales this year.
$.75/2 Ball Park beef, meat, or Angus franks – expires 2/28/10
$.50/1 Birds Eye Steamfresh Vegetables – expires 2/7/10 – if your grocery store doubles coupons, you can get these FREE – I got 13 for free a few weeks ago when they were 10/$10 at my store!
$.35/3 Chef Boyardee 15 oz cans or 7.5 oz microwaveable cups – expires 2/28/10 – get 3 for $1.95 when they go 10/$10 if your grocery store triples coupons! (these are also frequently part of the Kroger Mega sales and one should be coming up soon!)
$.35/1 Hillshire Farms Deli Select Ultra Thin or Hearty Slices Lunchmeat – expires 2/13/10 – if your grocery stores triple coupons, you’ll probably be able to get these for $1 when they go on sale!
$.75/1 Mission Tortillas – expires 2/21/10 – these don’t come out very often and we LOVE tortillas in our house 🙂
$.75/1 Quaker Rice and Multigrain Snack – expires 2/18/10 – these go on sale 10/$10 pretty often and are often included in the Kroger Mega sales (there should be one coming up in a few weeks!) which would make them just .25!
