Hope you didnt mind me popping in xxx

That's kind of funny that people would be embarrassed to use coupons. I would be embarrassed to give away more money than I have to if there were coupons available.

Anyway, most of the train riders here are NOT "extreme couponers". We just clip, share, and try to save as much as we can. On a full shopping trip, I know I can save between $50-$60 and I'm happy with that. I don't need to fill my home up with bottles of vitamin water or thousands of toothbrushes to feel I've accomplished something. As long as I can get what we need and save a nice amount of money, I'm happy

Are you staying here the full month of August? Wal Mart would be a great place to stock up on paper goods and other dry goods (such as pasta, cereals, canned vegs, etc). I'm not sure if the Wal Mart that you will be near will have a refrigerated/frozen section or a produce section. You should consider buying your meats at a regular supermarket if you're a meat-eater. The produce at Wal Mart is pretty good and reasonably priced.

As far as health/beauty aids, Wal Mart would be the best place for that also. They have the best prices on hair and body products. They also have a full wellness section and a pharmacy.

Hi Slytherinchick! First off, I must say don't think much of what you see on "Extreme Couponing" is typical of those of us who use coupons. Very few of us have shopping trips like you see on there. Some of those people have even been arrested for fraudulent coupon use.

I wish I had some good ideas for you but unless you're going to be in FL for several weeks and can buy the Sunday newspapers that have the coupon inserts in them, I can't think of anything helpful that wouldn't cost you an arm and a leg (like buying coupons from a clipping site or Ebay ahead of time). Unfortunately, postal rates between the USA and England are expensive. Even a lightweight letter costs about a dollar to mail from here to there. You would probably be paying more in postage than you would save using the coupons. Also most coupons expire within a few weeks to a couple months so they might expire before you get a chance to use them.

Anyone else on the train have any good ideas for Slytherinchick? Sorry I can't be more helpful.

The only idea I can come up with is that if Slytherinchick is going to be here for a while would be to buy the Sunday paper with coupon inserts and hit the coupon sites while here to print out some coupons.

Just returned from the post office where I deposited your envies (2) in the mailbox outside. They'll be heading your way tomorrow. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's.

Anyway, I didn't get an envie from my buddy last week (optional week) so I have nothing to send out on Tuesday. I had gotten today's inserts early (on Wednesday or Thursday) so I clipped them and sent them out in the envie to you on Friday.
One of the envelopes was the one you sent on Friday (I got in on Saturday). I was surprised to see you already had Sunday's coupons in the envelope I figured you must have gotten the inserts early. Don't worry about an envelope this week since you don't have anything to send...the last envelope will make up for it and I will just send along whatever is in Sunday's paper for next week. Thanks again for the great envelopes!!!
