Talking Coupon Train ~~ New Riders Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in hopping aboard our coupon train. Please be sure to read the next paragraph because sometimes new riders don't quite understand what the procedure involves. Make sure it's something that you really want to do and have ample time for and commitment to because it does take some time and effort on your part.

If you're interested in joining our coupon train, please PM me with your name, mailing address, month and day of birth, and your e-mail address. It's open to anyone interested in sending and receiving manufacturers' coupons. You will need to buy a newspaper every weekend. We send our envies on Mondays after clipping coupons from Sunday's newspaper inserts. By the middle to end of the week you will receive an envelope from your sender with coupons in it. You just remove what you want, add the new coupons from Sunday's newspaper to the coupons that were sent to you that you don't want, and send them on to your other train buddy the following Monday.

UPdate and curiosity...

J&D, your coupons are going out tomorrow! Hope they are useful!

There were only 2 inserts in my paper - the P&G and the SS. Of course, the RP is NEVER there, and sometimes we get it Wednesday. There was no 2nd SS, so I was going to go buy another 1 or 2 papers. Well, after some research, I found out we ONLY have 2 inserts. And our coupon blogger is ecstatic about these coupons! Why? I compared our SS to others out there (using bloggers in other cities) and our insert has between half and 2/3 of the coupons that the other cities get!

So I am curious. Do you think the other coupons are worth it? I have a friend in FOrt Worth, where they get all of the coupons, usually. She said she would get a Sunday subscription for me and mail me the inserts. Would this be worth my while? Her time? My money?

I will probably go ahead and buy another paper. The $2/Prilosec alone pays for the paper (my hubby uses it instead of a prescription.) Everything else is just bonus, and we do use some P&G products, like Tide. But I just wanted some opinions about getting a newspaper subscription just for the extra coupons and the opportunity to get some coupons we never see here. Thanks!

Happy New Year everyone!

I have a quick question; sometimes when I see postings of riders savings, I see they have included "store savings", "card savings", etc. Are we supposed to include that in our "neon green" savings price that we post, or is it strictly for coupon savings only? I have only been posting coupon savings, and I just wanted to clarify!

I have some savings from last year I forgot to post, so if it isn't too late:

$84.23

How well I know that! My last envelope came in a USPS envelope with a hand-written address on it. They had chewed it up so badly that I had to gingerly pick my way through the pieces to find the coupons!

DisneyMom88-An envelope will go out first thing Tuesday morning. Enjoy!
