Ordering Coupons

I know some of you don't like to clip coupons! It can be time consuming, I agree. I like to 'buy' coupons from places such as Ebay and Coupons by Dede. I search for products we frequently use and have gotten some great deals. Now, ebay can get a tad expensive. I have found that Coupons by Dede has the best pricing. For just under $6 (that's the minimum amount required for purchase) I got 28 coupons which will breakdown has follows:

10 - Cottonelle toilet paper - this is going to allow me to get 10 4 packs for $1.90.

10 - Green Giant Fresh Steamers - this is going to get me 10 bags of fresh steamer vegetables for $0!

8 - Maybelline makeup - this will score me some free or very close to free makeup!

If you don't include the makeup, because the price varies and I will probably wait to use them on a b1g1 sale, for $5.10 I will get 40 rolls of toilet paper and 10 bags of veggies. I call that a great deal!

So for those of you who don't want to clip coupons, or want to buy a bulk amount I would try buying online!

Thank you to a reader who pointed out that Coupons be Dede offers a referral program! If you choose to purchase coupons through her site, at checkout please enter my name and email (lisa chakery/ to help build referral bucks for me. THANK YOU!

Great deal on greetings cards!

Time to stock up on some greeting cards! Here is a coupon for 3 $.99 cards for $1! You will need to sign up for their Crown Rewards program in order to use this coupon. You can sign up online and print your card out to take with you.

Bath and Body Works - Great Deals!

BBW emailed this coupon to me today for a free lip product with any purchase. The Bargain Shopper Lady has this coupon for a free product (up to $13) with a $10 purchase on her site. If the store will allow you to use both coupons at the same time it can make for a great deal! Even one coupon at a time is great deal. Before the lip coupon came out I used the free product coupon and got a free wrapped basket with lotion, body wash and a loofah when I purchased 3 hand soaps! Great deal!

Card Cubby Giveaway

The Coupon Divas are having a great giveaway - check it out!

Card Cubby Review and Giveaway

Written by Kitty on November 30, 2008


I know you will love this product as much as I do! The Card Cubby was invented by mom, Wendy Krepak, and will organize your coupons, gift cards, rewards cards, business cards, shopper cards, and on and on. I have at least 30 or so different coupons and cards that I whip out and shuffle through like a big pack of playing cards when I would go shopping, so this has definitely helped me out.


Ok, so I admit, I am the girl in front of you who can never find my shopper loyalty card (yes, the one you roll your eyes at). These cards are from my purse; gift cards, rewards cards, coupons, whatever I collect I shove in the zipper part of my purse. I also tried the little see through pouches, but that never worked because the cards weren’t organized. I have been through countless plastic files that eventually crack and fall apart.


The Card Cubby measures just 5″ wide by 3″ high and can hold approximately 80 cards! You could even use it as a wallet, there is a clear pocket in the front where you can put Drivers License and inside you could put some cash, credit cards and even a cell phone would fit. It has the cool magnetic closure so you know your items are securely tucked away. You can take just your Card Cubby or it will easily fit in your purse with plenty of room to spare.


Now, you know I am a Diva to the Core and pink is my thing, some of you may want to match your coupon organizer to the color of your purse. You are in luck because the Card Cubby is available in eight different colors and designs. It is made of a soft, buttery material that is wipe-able and durable enought to stand up to all the use it will get. There is even a Wedding Edition Card Cubby which is available in simply silver (a very cute idea!).


Additionally, there are Kool Tools you can also purchase to go along with your Card Cubby like the Picopad or Mini Brag Book.

With the holidays just around the corner, I am thinking this would make the perfect gift for moms, grandmas, teachers, aunt, sisters, friends. The Card Cubby retails for $24.95 ($28.95 for the Caramel Leather). Guess What? Wendy is offering a 10% discount and FREE Shipping to anyone who orders by December 10th. Just use the code: CC209.
