Reader Spotlight – A Reader Shares An Update

UnknownToday's reader spotlight is an update from Angela. She shared a spotlight over 2 years ago and she's back with an update on what's happened since she shared her story. Sounds like things are going great for her!

Take it away, Angela...

I just wanted to give an update on my story which was published here on January 3, 2013. Yes, I’m still couponing! I Heart Publix has been very instrumental in my huge savings and I tell everyone who coupons (or wants to coupon) at Publix to use this site as their resource. I truly cannot thank you enough. With that being said... on with my update!

Once the story was released, my Facebook group, The Coup Loop, gained well over 1,000 members in just a couple of days. I have made some wonderful, long-distance friendships with people from all over the south who joined my group after reading the story. The group has grown to just under 5,000 members and I take great pride in running a coupon/saving money group where drama is not allowed and honest, respectful couponing is the only way to coupon. It’s a group where all things saving money, couponing and even sharing of stockpile recipes are discussed.

I spent almost every weekend in 2014 through April 2015 traveling Alabama teaching hundreds of people how to effectively and efficiently coupon. I still have my full-time day job during the week, but have taken on the responsibility as writer of money-saving/coupon articles for several Alabama newspapers and have just launched my website, thecouploop.com. I’m so excited about my website because in only a couple more weeks anyone in the country will be able take my class via videos they can watch from their home anytime day or night, versus trying to coordinate their schedule to attend one of my live events or having to miss out altogether simply because they don’t live in Alabama. The website is live with my articles and some other info, but the class videos are currently in editing.

Last, but not least, I am FINALLY a homeowner! That was my ultimate goal from my savings using coupons and savvy shopping. Couponing allowed me to get out of that huge debt in just a year and then made it possible to keep thousands of dollars in my bank account since I wasn’t spending it for groceries, toiletries and household goods. It took a lot of patience, work, dedication and perseverance, but I made it happen! I can honestly say that I started with basically nothing (divorce + tornado = start from scratch) and now have so much more than I ever imagined! On top of that, I’m making a difference in thousands of peoples’ lives and that is priceless.

Thanks  for sharing Angela.

Reader Spotlight – Couponing To A New Way Of Life

$5Today's Reader Spotlight comes to us from Vicki at Coupondipity. She shares how a $5 coupon class helped her turn her coupon interest into a way of life. It's amazing how coupons can change your life...and for the better!

For many years, I was not what you would call a "couponer". Sure, every now and then I'd clip a coupon from somewhere and stick it in my purse, only to find it with gum on it during my 'once a year' purse clean out.

A little over three years ago, a friend was hosting a coupon class and it was only $5 to attend. I figured I'd go - surely I could learn something. That night changed my life! I sat through the class and got more and more excited when I saw how much money I could save. I literally couldn't wait for my first coupon-shopping trip. I had no idea that NOT using coupons was like leaving money on the table...a lot of money.

I started small and when I walked out of the store with freebies, I could not contain my excitement. Here in Florida, true BOGO Land, I would literally get giddy when I had a BOGO coupon and Publix had the product on sale BOGO. Two for free! (Or more!). I began actually getting excited about grocery shopping. Then there was the time that the cashier opened the register and actually paid me! I was gobsmacked. I walked out of Publix with bags of groceries and money in my pocket. Seriously? Why is everyone not doing this?!? (They now give you your credit balance on a Publix gift card).

I started saving more and more; adding to my stockpile and my bank account. I even got better at this whole coupon thing than the girl who taught the class I'd attended. I had a ton of friends asking how to do what I do, so I decided to start a little blog so that everyone would have the information that I had.

And here's where things got really interesting. My blog blossomed into something much, much bigger than I ever expected. I now actually make money from my blog and I constantly receive products to review. I teach coupon classes. And now I have friends not only asking how to save with coupons, but how to make money blogging. It's hard to explain that I spent hours upon hours and days upon days getting to where I am today. But it was all because of a little $5 investment in a coupon class.

I am often asked what my number one tips are. I would stay to start small so that you don't get overwhelmed. Print any coupons you will use the moment you see them available for print (prints sometimes run out quickly) and be a good steward of your store's coupon policy; learn it and take a copy of it to the store with you. Don't try to game the system. Use each coupon the way that it was meant to be used, even if you can "get away with breaking the rules." Make it as easy as you can on the cashiers by having them ring up anything you have a free coupon for last so that they can easily find it to write the purchase price on the coupon. Separate manufacturer's coupons from store coupons and always get rain checks!

We are now to the point where we are able to donate many, many items to different ministries; all because of coupons. I have a ton of fun with coupons, and IHeartPublix is my top resource!

Thanks  for sharing Vicki.

Reader Spotlight – A Little Bit Of Effort Makes All The Difference

5e134e044c401ad6e4d365d82e2b391cThis week's Reader Spotlight comes to us from Kelly. She reminds us that a few minutes here and there can really add up to big savings. It's amazing what you can do with just a little bit of effort.

Take it away, Kelly!

I wanted to do a little write-up to all the working women (and men) out there who say that couponing is too "time consuming", and that saving a few cents here and there isn't worth the time you have to put in. Let me say that since graduating college, I have been a proud full-time career woman, some would say "professional". I have always been a breadwinner, and even as a mother, never slowed down. Of course, when I would shop for groceries and hear the cashier ask "Do you have any coupons today?", I never did. After all, I was "too busy" to clip coupons and save a few cents here and there, especially since I was always earning such a good living.

Well, during this last recession, my husband and I experienced the worst drop in business we have ever had, and quite frankly, some days we didn't know if we were going to make it. It was during this time that I told him, "I am going to start clipping grocery coupons!" I said it half-heartedly but somehow googled "Publix coupons" and found iheartpublix. My life has honestly never been the same again! Seriously! I remember looking over the site and learning about "stacking" and what an SS and an RP was! I felt I was learning a whole new craft. I remember printing the first coupons (after all, I didn't have any SSs or RPs at that time, since I had never saved them before) and looking forward to my first little trip to Publix. I watched as the total went down and, like any good drug, I was hooked. I started spending every Sunday night going over that week's sales and gathering up my coupons, and never have I missed a minute of work or let my business slip due to couponing...nor have I given anything else up!

In just about 2 years now, I estimate conservatively that I have saved about $3000 in groceries. It makes me a little bit sick to my stomach to think of the money I literally used to throw away! I am also proud to say our business has never been better and I absolutely intend to keep couponing as it is FUN and saves so much money!!!Best advice to working folks...get yourself on a schedule--one or two nights a week spend some time on the iheartpublix site and print your coupons. And never ever think that a dollar here and a dollar there doesn't add up because oh yes it does!! And join Facebook couponing groups...they are great ways to network with others.

Happy couponing to all of you!!

Reader Spotlight – Coupons As A Teaching Tool

couponing learningToday's Reader Spotlight is from Karen. She shares how a little bit of effort at the grocery store can turn into big learning for your kiddos. Did you know that coupons could be a useful teaching tool? Check out Karen's tips below. She has some great ideas!

Take it away, Karen...

As a reading and math tutor, I encourage parents to take advantage of everyday practical activities to increase their children’s knowledge. According the National Summer Learning Association, students lose the grade level equivalency of two months in math computation skills over the summer break. Combining grocery shopping with math practice is a great way to close that gap. I’ve compiled some exercises involving coupons which can be applied at the grocery store.

Subtraction: Ask your child to tell you your final cost for an item when the coupon is subtracted.

Addition: Find the total value of coupons by adding. You may need to show him/her how to group like amounts to make it easier. After you’ve gone through checkout, let them compare their results to the receipt.

Rate: Point out how the unit price on the shelf reflects rate (price/oz). Explain how this helps you find the best value when you compare sizes and brands. Now choose a coupon which is good for any size. Next, compute the new rate once the coupon is subtracted from each size. They may initially need a calculator for this, but they will soon be able to mentally determine the better value.

Percent savings: Publix prints the dollar amount for savings at the bottom of each receipt. This includes savings from buying sale items plus the use of coupons. Since I would not pay regular price for most items, my main interest is my coupon savings. Teach your child to look for the store coupon and manufacturer coupons savings. Add those two amounts together. Now take the subtotal and add the first sum to it so you have the total cost without coupons. Finally take the coupon amount and divide by total cost. The result will be a decimal. Have them move the decimal two places to the right to figure the percentage saved with coupons.

Years ago, I had the opportunity to use these exercises with a student. I picked her up from school, and since we had extra time, I used it as an opportunity to do my grocery shopping. Although she initially resisted, I kept being consistent (plus the promise of a Kit Kat bar helped greatly!), and she willingly participated. The effort paid off when she was placed in advanced math, and now as a junior in high school, has surpassed me in math.

Reader Spotlight – Stay Positive & Keep On Trucking!

heart-couponsToday's Reader Spotlight comes to us from Renee. This is here second time writing in and again she shares that a positive attitude and a some couponing skills can make such a difference. I love her tip about using the library as a resource...take advantage of those FREE resources!!

Take it away, Renee!

My name is Renee. I have written to you once before. I had told you that we had been informed that my husband would be loosing his job and that I had turned to couponing as a way of "preparing a stockpile" for the upcoming unemployment and lower income. Well, that time has come and gone. My husband indeed lost his job in March and has not had any luck finding another. It's a jungle out there. So, needless to say couponing is EXTREMELY important to us at this point. Not that I would ever go back to paying full price for anything after I have seen for the past several months what I can save with coupons. Just a little prep work and viola! I love it!

At my place of employment, (your friendly local library!) several of my co-worker also are couponers. So keeping that in mind our library hosted several coupon classes complete with instructor. It was very well received and many of the locals attended. Getting the word out and showing more people how much money they can save-COUPONERS 101 .

I am grateful to iheartpublix.com and you Michelle. You and your site are a major resource for me to keep my budget on track. I rely on your site and thank you for your efforts.

Just an FYI for anyone out there that doesn't have computer access or time for classes on couponing and are not sure how to get started. There are lots of books in your local library on the subject. Check it out!

Thanks again for everything you do. You inspire us all.
Renee

Reader Spotlight – It Started With A Bottle Of Dish Liquid!

sunlight-publix
Today's Reader Spotlight comes to us from Rachel. She tells us how a little bottle of dish liquid started her down the road to savings. Funny how an everyday object can make such a big impact in our lives!

Take it away Rachel!

It all started with Sunlight dish detergent August 4, 2013. Yes, the yellow and blue detergent that was 50% off when the dear people at Sun decided to bless us with a $1 off coupon. Well, my story goes like this- in a nutshell:

I dropped by Publix to grab my fill of BOGO only items when I saw a lady with 20 sunlight detergents in her buggy. I contemplated asking her about the sale on the item, but my shyness got the best of me and I walked away. Well, fate would have it that we both had forgotten milk and we ended up face to face trying to decipher the “goodness” in lactaid, almond, coconut, and soy milk. We made eye contact and that’s when my better judgment decided to ask about the detergents. She explained the deal and how Publix would pay me back 31 cents for each. Not only did she explain, that little coupon angel gave me 5 coupons! I was hooked instantly after checkout.

I had never couponed and I was having a major independence selfie-parade over my new-found financial freedom. I rushed home and began scouring the web and ran across deals, dos and don’ts. It wasn’t long before the rain cloud shadowed my parade and I realized my sweet couponing angel was a deceiver because she gave my photocopies! I was embarrassed to go back in the store and be viewed as a thief but when I returned, no one noticed me.

I am still thankful that my couponing angel started me on this journey by simply sharing with me. She didn’t have to give me 1 copy because she planned on using all of them, so I’m thankful. I’m glad I learned about coupon fraud the first day and found this site a few days later. I realize that this is one huge nutshell.

Reader Spotlight – The Joy Of A Freebie!

oh-yeah-its-freeThis week's Reader Spotlight comes to us from Tiffany. She shares the joy of finding a great freebie as a new couponer. You guys all have to remember the fun of your first freebie! Heck, I still get excited when I plop a freebie in my cart.

Take it away, Tiffany!

Couponing is AMAZING! No really…just when I have cool websites like iheartpublix.com to help with coupon matchups. Needless to say, this website makes my life so much easier.

I began couponing only three weeks ago, and like many readers, I’m addicted. I had no idea what stockpiling was about (except for watching extreme couponing as I drool) and stacking coupons. Now I’m asking family members to save me their inserts, I’m printing coupons, and saving money along the way. I think I’m really lucky to live five minutes away from a Publix that accepts competitor coupons (Kroger & Target) and doubles coupons up to fifty cents. This makes it hard for me to coupon at other retail stores because I’m saving more by shopping at Publix.

Okay, lets get down to why I really needed to change how I was shopping. Yes, partly because I needed to find ways to cut back on spending due to moving to a new town, changing jobs, raising a toddler and twin babies. But in reality, I was nervous about running out of something if there was a storm and not being able to provide for my family. My children have helped change the way I shopped because I wanted them to have a stockpile of food if some natural disaster happened and we were stranded for a couple of days. Funny, because I just moved from Hurricane land and growing up with those storms, you would have thought that I would be used to stockpiling and emergency preparedness. Nope. It took me moving up north and being nervous about black ice and snowstorms.

Finally, the moment I was addicted- This recently happened when I shopped for the Johnson and Johnson small gauze deal (found exclusively on iheartpublix.com) and I got them for FREE! WHAT?!? I actually had a grin on my face walking out of Publix thinking, “yea, I just got this for free!!!” I know I’m a little silly but that’s when I was hooked. Now I have quite the little boo boo kit for my kiddos.

It’s been a lot of fun learning the ropes and occasionally holding up the line as the cashiers have to manually enter in the coupon code. But it’s always fun to look at the end of the receipt and see how much money I just saved! So here’s to iheartpublix.com for helping my family build a stockpile and save money!

Reader Spotlight – Why Pay Full Price?

piggy bank
Today's reader spotlight comes to us from Salli. She shares how couponing and saving money has allowed her and her husband to enjoy retirement. She reminds us that saving money doesn't stop at the grocery store. Look for ways to save everywhere you shop and you'll have fun and help others in the process!

Take it away, Salli...

With all the awareness regarding coupons, it never ceases to amaze me how many people I see in the supermarket shopping without them.  Whenever I have extra coupons that I won’t be able to use, I offer them to someone who looks like they could use them.  Would you believe that I have been refused?  Even if money is not an issue, why would someone pay full price for anything if they could get it free?

My husband and I are retired and are comfortably living the same as when we were working.  That is in large part because of coupons.  And I’m not just talking about groceries.  Never have your car serviced without checking online for a coupon.  We bought new seat covers for the car with a $25 off coupon and always use a coupon for oil changes.  Even with clearance prices, many retailers offer extra savings with coupons.  Every restaurant and fast food place at one time or another has specials and coupons available.

Stockpiling is great for groceries and toiletries, but also for clothing.  Sales on underwear, t-shirts, socks, shoes – purchase on sale with coupons and put away for future use.  Publix sells items other than groceries.  I’ve gotten free pens, pencils, light bulbs, baby bottles and knee-highs there by matching coupons with their sales.  I never wait until October or November to start Christmas shopping.  Winter clothing goes on sale during spring and summer and makes perfect gifts in December.  Some online department stores offer rewards programs and free shipping or local pick-up.  This past year I got several pairs of shoes, a couple of blouses, a bunch of kitchen gadgets, even a large stock pot – all free!

I could go on and on, but I must give credit where credit is due.  It started with iheartpublix which led me to other sites and other wonderful people like you Michelle who work so hard to make our lives easier.  I’ve signed up with several sites, and every morning and evening I check my emails for the day’s bargains.  I especially love that you post Publix upcoming sales with match-ups on Monday morning and the Happy Report on Wednesday.  Since our new circular goes into effect on Thursday, it gives me several days to work on my list and gather all my coupons.

Not only is it fun, but we're able to share with our family and to donate to charity.  It doesn’t have to take a lot of time, just the desire to save money.

Reader Spotlight – Creating Your Own Price List!

Grocery Price List
Today's reader spotlight comes to us from Michelle over at Hallo-the-House. She shares how easy it is to create your own price list. I am a big advocate of making your own price list. As I have mentioned before...price lists are very personal as we all have different needs. A must have for me may be a luxury for someone else and thus the price points will vary dramatically.

Take it away, Michelle

I believe that one of the most important ways to save money on groceries is to use a price list, and I find that using Microsoft Excel makes it easy. Over the years, I’ve made adjustments on how and what I track, but I now have it down to an easy to use system that works well for me.

The best way to start is by entering in all the items on your receipt after each shopping trip. After just a few months you will build your list to include most of the items your family regularly buys. And once you have those items entered, it takes very little time to update the list after each trip to the store.

My spreadsheet includes the following items:

Item/Brand/Type (Tomatoes/Hunts/Pureed)
Size (number of units - 29)
Unit (oz)
Regular Price ($2.19)
Regular Price per Unit (Excel formula - $0.076)
Sale Type (BOGO)
Sale Price ($1.10)
Sale Price per Unit (Excel formula - $0.038)
Manufacturer Coupon ($0.50/4)
Manufacturer Coupon Amount per Item ($0.125)
Store Coupon ($1/4)
Store Coupon Amount per Item ($0.250)
Price after Coupons (Excel formula - $0.73)
Price per Unit after Coupons (Excel formula - $0.025)
Store (Publix)
Date Purchased (2/19/15)
Quantity Purchased (4)
Notes: Last BOGO (1/15/15)

This may seem intimidating, but it really takes me just a few minutes to enter the receipt information after each trip, and where I’ve noted the Excel formula does the math for me.

Having a price list of all of the items that we buy helps me to know the best price for each item. I can easily compare unit prices to see if a different size or brand is a good bargain. I can also keep track of the frequency of BOGO sales for items that we frequently use. For example, my husband likes the Publix brand Seltzer Water. Because of my price list tracking, I know that it goes BOGO about every 8 weeks and how many I should stock up on. This means that I always pay half price for seltzer … and many other items.

Shopping ListCreating a Shopping List

The second way that I use my price list is to create a shopping list based on the current sales and what we need for each week. Using the I Heart Publix weekly coupon match-up list, I highlight the items on my price list that I want to buy. To the left of each item, I enter in the Sale, Quantity and Cost for the items I plan to purchase that week. An Excel formula at the bottom of the sheet shows me the total for the items to be purchased which helps me budget, and is especially helpful on the Gas Card deal weeks when I want to spend $100 in order to purchase two gas cards.

Once I’ve highlighted the items I want to buy, I copy and past those rows into my weekly shopping list (on a separate Excel sheet) and also list the coupons that I have for that shopping trip. I leave a space to write in the actual price on the printed list as I shop since this may vary slightly from what I planned. Since my price and shopping lists are set up in the same order as the aisles in my favorite Publix it makes it super easy to quickly do my shopping and stick to only what’s on the list. I can also easily compare my receipt against the shopping list (which I do before I leave the Publix parking lot) to make sure that everything rang up correctly.

Knowing the best price for the things you buy and having a shopping plan for each week can greatly reduce your grocery costs. Just a little effort up front to set up a list and about a half hour of planning and tracking each week can really pay off in both money and time!
