    Gosh wish I knew about couponing (how much you could really save) and knew about this site before I graduated from the University of Kansas. Now having moved back to Chicago deals don’t seem as great, but I’m learning a lot from this site.

    • Allison V. says:

      Keep at it, it’s worth it! You’ll find what works well and it can make a big difference!

      Amanda, do you know about a few great couponing websites based in Chicago? Check out and Those two of my favorite sites. We have great bargains in Chicago and, honestly, I think they are better, but taxes are higher.

    how did you get the tony’s coupon
    ? 🙂 great deals on everything!!!!

    • Crystal says:

      They sent me some because I did a giveaway with them last week. I have a few extras, email me your address (moneysavingmom @ and I’ll send you a couple!

  • Alisha says:

    I see that your bottles aren’t all lemonades. Were the other juices on sale as well?

  • Ora says:

    I live in Chicago and I’ve been finding great deals. You just have to look for them. I look at about six different blogs and not all have the same tips.

  • Great savings! Crystal, do you participate in Upromise? You probably know this already but you can often get bonus cash for just for activating their free eCoupons (you don’t even need to print them out).

    For example, in April 2011 if you bought Sister Schubert’s rolls you would get a bonus $0.35 in your Upromise account which you can split between all your kids. A lot of the products I purchase regularly with our grocery cash gives us bonus Upromise money.

    I don’t recommend this as the only way to save for college but it helps families put a little extra aside with items they purchase already. 🙂

  • Dee says:

    Is there another source for the Santa Cruz mq? It was stated you could only use one fprinted from the link. I only printed one, although I had the option to do more. I hope there is another source so I can stock up. Thanks.

  • RuthS says:

    I spy your favorite cookies 😉

  • Vicky says:

    Crystal, Savingstar is giving 1.00 back on the tony pizzas, I’m not sure what store it would be in your area but nice deal.

  • Danielle says:

    Wow, how in the world did you get those Tony’s coupons? That’s awesome!

    • Crystal says:

      They sent me some because I did a giveaway with them last week. I gave the rest of mine away, otherwise, I’d offer to mail you some.

  • Alicia says:

    I’m pretty new to couponing. I’m currently deciding on what method I want to use for organizing the coupons. I’m sure it will be some envelope method. My question is: when you have a lot of coupons, how do you keep up with expiration dates and using the coupons before they expire?

  • gina says:

    I’m confused as to how the milano cookies were 99 cents a box. did they have double coupon day?

  • Lee says:

    I am wondering where you got the milano coupons, those are also my favorite! I hope I didn’t miss them somewhere…..

  • toni says:

    Got our Milano cookies too. Saving them as treats when the in-laws are here this weekend. Also got the lemonades. The strawberry is soooo delicious.
