  1. Hi! I would love to win this magazine subscription. I found your blog through your interview with Birmingham Baragain Mom on It's exciting to see an extreme couponer from my area. I read all of the "famous" blogs and apply thier techniques to my shopping. But now, there is actually someone close to home! I live in Jemison Alabama and I too will only be found in Publix, (or target). I hear Calera will be getting one sometime in 2010. I can't wait. Anyway, congratulations on the new blog and i look very forward to following along with you.

  2. Hi,
    Saw your blog on bargain mom. I've heard alot of great things about this magazine!!!!! and I'm excited about your new blog!!!


  3. I'm so excited about this new blog! The best way we have been able to save money these past few months is by not going out to eat. We have only been going out to eat for special occasions like birthdays. I have heard alot about this magazine and would LOVE to win it!

  4. I am so excited to see this. I love to save money and would love to win an " All You " subscription. I just love the both of you. I am so glad that you want to share you knowledge with us. I am a blog addict, so good luck and Happy Couponing!!!!

  5. I should have read all of the above info:
    Here is my info :
    I am a follower now, I have added you to my Blog and I am about to put your new listing on my blog.( )
    My money saving tips is this: Always plan a menu and buy your groceries using coupons. I do this for a month at a time and it really helps me alot. It was hard at first but it is getting easier now.

  7. I LOVE your "Who we are" sentence!!

  8. Commenting, will follow the blog, post a button on my blog, and I have a money saving tip. I try to buy ahead when something is on sale, I have a coupon and there is a BOGO (like at Publix.)

    What stores do double coupons? Anyone know?

  9. I blogged about the giveaway, grabbed your button, and am now a follower!

  10. I love your blog! and I would love to win the all you subscription!

  11. here's my money saving tip-when you find an item on sale for its lowest price point-buy as many as you have coupons for. this will ensure that you have enough of the item to last until the new coupon comes out and the item goes on sale again!

  12. What a great new blog!


  13. I'm following your blog now, I blogged about you and I grabbed your button :)

    My money saving tip: I've started trying not to buy anything unless it's on sale & I have a coupon...

  14. I have put your button on my blog and would love to win the subscription. ... I guess my best money saving tip would be hitting the 90% off clearance sales at Target, thrift shopping for clothes, toys and basically most of things that decorate my home, coupons and buying store brands. Also when you get one of the buy one get one free items at Publix, it's only half price, you don't have to get two items like you do at Food World or Winn Dixie! Gotta love Publix... Wal-mart is a lot cheaper though on most of their items, but they don't double coupons and their fresh fruits and veggies aren't as good.


  15. Hi from Pinson, AL! I found you through the article!! I'd love to win the subscription. I am off to link to your site with your blog button!!! I love the buy one get one free at Publix!!! My favorite way to save!

  16. I just blogged about your giveaway!!! I think your site is just fabulous!!!

  17. I want to win!!! I am so proud of you, and I will remember to post any great deals I find also!

  18. I like your list of freebies below. I wonder how you got the Glade.

  19. I save money by couponing and staying home more.

  21. I love your new blog and am very excited about reading it everyday! I have already grabbed your button and blogged about you. My email address is I have several money saving tips. The first being cutting coupons and buying when things are on sale. I make a menu and (try my best to) stick to it. Also I check out movies from the library. Most have newer movies and you can keep them checked out for a week (especially great with the kids movies). I also shop a lot of consignment sales and stores.

  22. Hey! I would love to win this magazine! I have already blogged about you, I will grab a button, and I am following you now but something messed up when I clicked to follow because now my pic doesn't show up?! I don't have any money saving tips other than the obvious- buy sale items! That's why I am here! To learn! ha! My email address is Thanks!
