Coupon Mom idea

Coupon Mom's website says that has $25 giftcards for $4 with the code LABOR. I can't get into the site right now but I'm thinking about stocking up for my family and some teacher gifts. Check it out.

local sales and web links

Hey friends,
Just wanted to drop a line to say check out the Warehouse Market sale, drumsticks 69 cents a lb. , Dr.Pepper 69 cents a 2 ltr., All 35 load size $2.99 + at $1 IP, there are a few more items. The sale runs Friday and Saturday only.

You can now do your Walgreen's rebates online... it's sure easy and I'm hoping for a quicker turnaround time.

Check out Under the Freebies link there is a link to Walmart. I found a $27 coupon book for free, some fem. hygine samples, and a rebate for the new cleaning products that you mix with water. There is also a free song download of the week.

A new website for me is A full cup. More after I check it out.

Don't forget to share your finds.
