Coupon Starter Kits!

CMO Button

I have found that organized couponing is essential to saving money at the stores. In order to really make the most of your couponing, you need to have a way to organize your coupons. I use a binder system. I use a Case-it binder with a carrying strap and 9 slot baseball card sheets to put my coupons in. I have found a few places that you can get starter kits and other items to help get organized. I have also found a few great resources for purchasing newspaper insert coupons and full inserts.

*HOT* Hallmark's Confidence Care Package Back To School Giveaway!

A big thanks to Hallmark for sponsoring this awesome prize for the Back To School Giveaway! 

I was given the opportunity to review the Confidence Care Package and love it! The Hallmark cards are a great way to show care and love. My youngest loves the ladybug case and thinks the note cards are sweet! And my husband recorded the book and my youngest loves it!

With backpacks full of new pencils, binders and glue, kids might think they’re ready to take on the first day of school. But, sometimes kids need more than school supplies to face the exciting and challenging situations the upcoming year holds. That’s why Hallmark has created a back-to-school confidence checklist!

Hallmark’s Back to School Confidence Checklist
Let them hold onto your words. Kids often get embarrassed when parents say “I love you” in front of their friends. Think about sticking a card in their backpack or inside a textbook, so they can find it later and hold onto it all day. 

Surprise your child with a lunchtime delight. Fruits and veggies will help a kid be physically fit, but don’t forget about a child’s emotional wellness. The unexpected “I love you” or “good luck” will let your child know you’re by their side, even after they get on the school bus.

Pass the encouragement bug around your family. Challenge the entire family to support each other by passing around the encouragement bug — Hallmark’s Bug ‘Em. One person starts by filling Bug ‘Em with treats, a coupon to do something nice (e.g., make their sibling’s bed) or a kind note of encouragement, and then leaves Bug ‘Em where the recipient will find it. Once the recipient finds Bug ‘Em, he or she is charged with surprising another family member and spreading the encouragement bug.
We have done the homework for you and want to give you a jumpstart on the school year. 

Hallmark’s Back- to-School Confidence Care Package, which includes:
  • Hallmark’s Kids Collection three-card pack, which feature topics for young kids, including nerves about school and positive reinforcement for hard work, as well as topics for tweens/teens, such as peer pressure and choosing friends wisely
  • Lunchbox Notes — 50 ways to add a little love to lunchtime
  • Bug’Em — a pint-sized plush that can hold cards and other tokens of encouragement
    • *BONUS* Hallmark Recordable Storybook - Recordable Storybooks allow you to record your voice, and your little ones can read along with you even if you’re far away. They are also great for encouraging your kids to read and building confidence for reading aloud!

    Decoding Coupon Barcodes - Is It Wrong?



    The Story

    I was shopping in Harris Teeter yesterday and ran into an interesting situation. Because I am often recognized at the stores, people always ask me questions. I am more than happy to help. However, when I have to tell someone their doing something "Wrong" I feel bad. I had to deal with that yesterday.

    First of all, I was asked if there was a way to read the coupon bar code to see if they can use it on other products than what it was intended for. I answered "No, I don't teach that practice". Then I was informed that a customer in the store told them about it and was doing it regularly. I was a little upset about this. Practices like that is the reason stores are tightening up their coupon policies and making it harder for us to get great deals.


    What is “BarCode Decoding”?

    Simply put, it is deciphering the bar code on a coupon to see if it will work on different (preferably less expensive) items.


    Counterfeit Money

    Look at coupon barcode decoding this way: It is like using counterfeit money to pay for your purchase! Although the cashier may not notice you are paying with a counterfeit bill, it will eventually reveal itself and the store looses out. A coupon is a form of payment and by not getting what the coupon says it is for is the same as paying with counterfeit money.

    So, please read your coupons, get exactly what it says it is for and follow the parameters given by the coupon. Please don't use the barcode to determine what you can get because you know the register won't beep. Just because the register does not beep, does not mean that it is OK.


    Be Aware

    There are plenty of other websites and blogs that teach this practice and believe that it is OK. Please Be Aware! They believe they are right and have no problem teaching others to do the same.  Taking advantage of a glitch in the bar code to get around the text of the coupon is fraud.


    Let's Do The Right Thing!
