Please join us on the new website for the latest on deals at the Commissary, Publix, Amazon, Bi-Lo, Rite-Aid & MORE! Make sure you sign up for our RSS feed and/or follow us on Facebook!

We’ve received e-mails and comments on why the information is out-of-date and if we’ve “moved” so I wanted to post here, again, with the updated information.

For those of you who were unable to print the $1/1 Renuzit Cone coupon the first time around, Renuzit has released an additional lot to the first 70,000 individuals who share a little “like” love on the facebook page.

These are FREE at many stores, but those of you who are military couponers, add them to your stash for your next Commissary trip…makes them FREE plus overage!

-thanks Alicia!

If you have printed a copy of the Commissary coupon policy yet, or simply want to read over it to get a better understanding of proper coupon use, please head on over to DeCA’s facebook page and take a look.

It is VERY important that we, as military couponers, and those shopping elsewhere, ensure we are well prepared before and during ALL shopping trips. Please DO NOT try to deviate from the guidelines!

Today was an extremely LONG day. SO much has been going on lately that I needed some time to think, and what better way to get the mind under control than shopping.

I’m really beginning to believe that God is testing my level of faith in Him. More than enough times, I’ve left out of this house, over the past few weeks, only to realize that I’ve failed to bring along cash. I often times, drop change in my pockets from off of my dresser and keep what I get after bringing a dollar in my change holder within my purse. After my youngest daughter asked me one day if I was taking my change with me, I’ve always tried to have some with me, just in case….so glad I was obedient on this day…

I tried calling Hubby from the store but got his voicemail. We were on a tight schedule so I couldn’t afford to go back to the house.

BTW, Hubby finally TEXTED me while I was in the checkout line to see if I was “OK”….thanks Babe.

Kay n Hubby FL
Hello and welcome! I am a military spouse & mom of four boys and two girls, ages 1 to 10, oldest diagnosed with autism. We're located in the Charleston, SC area. My family and my faith are very important to me. Since I've started using coupons I have been able to save more money and become a better steward of my household. I hope to seed into the general public, and our military families, how to spend less and get more.

Get ready to take your grocery & household spending to a whole new level! Couponing is not only a means to seed but an avenue to harvest...both opportunities are endless & a joy to delight in.

I welcome feedback and comments! Thank you again!
