My Couponing Favorites...

I have had so many people asking me about my couponing links so I decided to turn this email into a blog. Hope it helps someone out there...

Here are my favorite websites to get great deals and the weekly saving post that I use to mark out my shopping trips.

1. MoneySavingMom.com has an AWESOME explanation of how to shop at CVS. It is listed under STORE DEALS... hover your mouse over CVS and the CVS 101 link appears to the right. This was a big help to me starting out. It is an overall wonderful site. She post lots of good links for FREE stuff, as well as financial advice, crafting with the kiddos and even Freezer cooking. Great Mommy Website!
