HOT TIP! Free L'Oreal Bare Naturale at Walgreens!

I was just hanging out in HotCouponWorld, browsing the deals, when I got this Hot Tip to share with you!  Apparently, L'OREAL Bare Naturale Eyeshadow & Eyeliner is on clearance for $2.59.  Use the $3/1 store coupon in the "November Healthy Savings Booklet" (last page) to get it free!
If you don't know what the elusive "November Healthy Savings Booklet" looks like (my WAGS doesn't carry them), here it is:

Of course, if you don't have that booklet (Seriously, about 80% of us don't...) - just check your Red Plum insert this coming Sunday, there's supposed to be a $2/1 coupon in there!

$5 Huggies Packs @ Walgreens

If you haven't noticed by now, a lot of the BEST Walgreens deals hinge on these mysterious little books they carry (or don't carry) in the store.  To do THIS deal, you will need the Walgreens Coloring/Activity Book, which you may be able to find at the Pharmacy or in the coloring book section:

The coupons within are Store Coupons, and when scanned just once, will deduct for however many items you are buying. For instance, in the following deal it deducts 4X for (4) Packs of Huggies.  If you don't cut out the coupon, the cashier may just scan it and let you keep it in your book to use again another day.  That has happened to me before!
Now that you know what it looks like, and how valuable it is, try ducking into Walgreens in different areas of town, when you're out and about, to see if they have it!

✮Huggies Deal✮
  • Buy 4 Jumbo packages of Huggies diapers at $8.99 + a small filler of your choice to make sure your AFTER-COUPON total is at least $25
  • Use $5/$25 coupon in the front of your ad
  • Use $1/1 Huggies in Walgreens activity book (will deduct $4)
Pay about $5 per packages of diapers out of pocket!
*Then, if you submit to Caregivers Marketplace , you can get a 75¢ rebate per package, for a final price of $4.25!
- Thanks, Moms By Heart!

"But I don't HAVE those coupons!"

I got a comment today from reader Emily, who was feeling frustrated and confused after coming up short, coupon-wise.  Here's what she had to say:

"I think I'm missing something - I can't find several of the listed coupons in the Red Plum or SS circulars. For example - I don't see the Emerald Nuts coupon from 11/8 SS and there have been several others that aren't in my circulars.  Help!! I've just spent an hour going through coupons and have about 3 things to buy at 2 different stores."
Emily, I know EXACTLY how you are feeling right now.  When I started out, I would get so excited, only to feel deflated when I realized I didn't have many of the coupons listed.
The reason for this, is that coupons & inserts vary GREATLY depending on how "Big" your paper is.  The bigger the city you live in, the better your coupons will be.  Always buy the biggest paper around you- to make sure you get the best selection of coupons.

*You can see what coupons your city's paper actually got, right HERE.
If that's not very comforting though, here are some tips to pad your coupon collection:

✮ - Order from Ebay or TheCouponClippers the moment you find something you want/need that you don't have the coupons for.  In most cases, these will get to you within 3-4 days, plenty of time to use them! (If the items are sold out by then, just grab a raincheck!)

 ✮ - Be vigilant at grocery, gas stations, chain stores, etc.. for coupon books, tearpads and blinkies.  (The other day I scored Nesquik & Coke coupons from a tearpad at the Shell station!)

✮ - If you have relatives or friends in large cities, ask them if they would mind mailing you their inserts (or, offer to pay them to buy a couple just for you).  My Papaw loves to cut coupons, but doesn't do much of his own shopping anymore.  He sends me an envelope of coupons once in awhile, and in return, I send him my best brag-receipts!  It gives him a sense of pride to know that his cheap-ness was passed down to someone in the family....

✮ - Find a local coupon-swap group! What others don't need (baby coupons, pet coupons) you may find to be a Godsend, and vice-versa!! (If you live in Cleveland, go HERE to get updates on a local coupon group!)

✮ - Sign up for all the coupon booklets and mailers you possibly can!  Even samples usually come with coupons.  Plus, who doesn't like finding a little freebie in their mailbox a couple times a week?

✮ - Last but not least, print out new coupons as soon as they come available- the good coupons go fast, and they're often high-value!  We'll try to keep you abreast of all the best new printables, so you don't miss out!

Emily, I hope that helps a little- and just remember: Deals come and go, and if you miss out on a few this time, there will be more just around the corner!  Between Bi-Lo, Publix, and the others, there is never a long gap in great bargains!
