Meet My Mailbox!

This was actually my mailbox from yesterday! Nothing good today!

1- Save up to $1.50 coupon from McCormick = FREE Spices - The hubby should be super excited about this one! I got this from emailing them a compliment!
1- Save $.75 on any Grill Mates from McCormick- came with the FREE coupon
20- Dove $2.00 on any deodorant or body spray- ordered from Ebay

You might be wondering why I ordered 20 Dove coupons- Well at Publix they sell the Dove Deodorant for $2.99 so with this coupon that makes them just $.99/each. Well to make it even better they also have a $1/1 Degree or Dove Anti-Perspirant Deodorant, any 2.6 to 3 oz in the Green Advantage Flyer (they are usually right by the front door with the weekly flyers). So do the math- yep that means FREE deodorant. 20 to be exact =) and actually I'll make $.20 in overage when I buy them too. Dove is my FAVORITE deodorant so when I saw this deal I went ahead and purchased these coupons off Ebay. I paid ~$1.50 for all of them. I used the money in my Paypal account that I make by doing surveys and stuff (It's my FREE money to do whatever I want with) so technically they won't cost me anything!! 

This is what the Green Advantage Flyer looks like! 

BTW these dove coupons were in last weeks Sunday paper from 1/30- so check your coupons!

Meet My Mailbox!

Today was such a fun day- I love when unexpected gifts show up!

The first surprise package came from the kid's great-grandmother. I am so in love with this blanket and the card that came with it made me love it even more. A friend of my Gram's made it and she said she wanted it to go to a Catholic baby to use during their Baptism. So perfect for us since we are actually going to Baptism class on Sunday for Baby H. The card was so sweet, the friend wrote how wonderful my Grandmother was and thanked her for all the work she does for the little babies she also talked about how much love she put into this blanket for the little baby who will use it for their Baptism- I can't wait for my girl to use it!
The next surprise had lots of super cute clothes for the kids!
- Coupon book for Burger King
- $5/$25 Dollar General (I'm going to call my Publix to see if they will accept this!)
- Coupon mailer insert
- (2) Leatheman tool-thingys (yes this is the technical term for this whozitwhatsit)- prize from Marlboro
- Netipot from their Facebook promotion- they have these pretty often!!

What did you get today???

Victoria's Secret PINK FREE Lace Panty & Mini Purse!!

My Coupon Binder!!

I was super excited today when I was asked to show you my binder! Now I want to start off but letting you know everyone has their own style on how they like to organize their coupons. Here are a few example how others organize theirs!

I'll tell you my some of those methods make me crazy just to look at them!! My personal preference is the binder method. Basically I clip my coupons every week and organize them into baseball card holders divided in my binder by category. Some find this method crazy because it can be time consuming but I have it down to a science now where it really does not take me that long to do it anymore! I usually take one night a week and plop in front of the TV once the kids are asleep and start organizing and putting away any coupons I have from the week. This goes for IPs (internet printables), Mailers, Sunday paper coupons etc. Also at the end of every month I take out all expired coupons. I usually do this the last day of the month- in fact I did this tonight!

So here it is! The He Works I Save Coupon Binder!!

It is just a plain white 2-inch 3-ring binder. When I started out couponing in 2009 I did not want to spend very much making my binder- I mean the point of it was to save me money right?- So I bought the cheapest supplies I could find. This is the original binder I bought. I would suggest getting a 2-inch binder. With a 1-inch you will run out of room quickly!

My binder is pretty organized right now and freshly cleaned out! Normally the pocket on the left is filled with the current Yellow and Green Advantage flyers from Publix. The Black zippered pouch is used to hold my scissors and pens. When I plan my grocery store trips I go ahead an pull any coupons I plan on using and put them in here. This way when I am walking around the store I can just go through this instead of going through my entire book. No worries though the book always comes with me in case I want to buy something I was not planning on - like clearance items! I always bring scissors with me too in case I find a booklet or I need to clip a coupon while shopping!

I have my book separated by dividers into 14 sections they are
FREE- any FREE item coupons, ECBs, Register Rewards
Refrigerated- Cheese, Butter, Produce etc.
Frozen- Frozen veggies, Pizza, Frozen Meals, Ice Cream etc--- you know the stuff in the freezers =)
Grains- Pasta, Rice, Bread etc
Meat- Lunch meat, Bacon, Fresh Meat etc
Candy/Baking- Candy, Baking mixes, Flour, Sugar etc.
Cans/Jars/Bottles- Mayo, Soup, Salad Dressings, Condiments etc
Pet - Anything for the Dog
Household- Cleaning stuff, Laundry, Dish Washing, Batteries, Air Fresheners- etc
Health & Beauty- Medicine, Toothpaste, Feminine Products, Shaving supplies, Shower Stuff - etc
Baby- Anything for the kids, diapers, wipes, kid food etc
Drinks - all drinks including coffee
Misc- office supplies, store coupons, anything that doesn't fit somewhere else
Restaurants- restaurant coupons

I also have my coupon organized in each section. For example Health & Beauty is a HUGE section. So I have it organized by pages. All the medicine goes together, tampons/pads, toothpaste/toothbrushes/floss etc. Make sense?
I have these large clear sleeves in the misc. section to hold things like Bed Bath and Beyond coupons

I also use these large sleeves to hold certain stores coupon policies! Sometime employees need a little educating on the correct coupon policies for that particular store.
I suggest printing these out and keeping them with you. Walgreens Walmart Target. 

I also keep address labels in my book so when I sell things like formula checks on Ebay I always know where they are:
In the very back I keep empty baseball card sleeves

In the back pocket I have a big pink envelope for any rebates- here I keep the rebate forms and any receipts that are needed for the rebates.

And that's it!! That is my coupon book!! I know it may look like a lot or even overwhelming but this is just the method that works best for me! With two little ones I need to be super organized when I go to the store because they are usually with me 95% of the time so I try to get in/out as fast as possible!

Let me know if you have any questions at all! I love questions and I would love to help you get yours started!!

Don't forget when we reach 100 fans on the He Works I Save Facebook page I will be giving away a starter coupon binder!!

Oh yeah one last thing-- here is the back of my binder from the best vacation EVER! JJ and I won a FREE trip to Montana last year! It was such an amazing place!!
BTW this picture collage was FREE from Walgreens =)

Meet My Mailbox!

Nothing like blogging when everyone is sleeping-- I love it-- no seriously I do =)

Here is what I got today!!
- FREE coupon for Yoplait Yogurt- still available here
- FREE coupon from Jimmy Dean - I posted about here
- $10 check from Phillips from a rebated submitted in December from buying this Sonicare Electric toothbrush - guess how much I paid for it after this rebate! $7!!!! Yeahhhh!!

Check out the awesome package that showed up from the Valspar-I posted about it here! I was so impressed with this kit! It includes a mini-roller & refill, a mini paint tray, paint sample in that awesome blue color I picked & a $5 off coupon!! Now I just have to figure out what I will paint!! This is still available to those that are interested. Go here and like Valspar on Facebook- they will be giving away another 1,000 samples @ 9am!!

 Oh and no big deal-- it's just the new Tiffany & Co. catalog. I might or might not want almost everything in here for Valentine's Day. You know you could always make this suggestion for me to my hubby-- I might or might not have left it on the counter in the kitchen =)

Are you a lover of Swagbucks just like I am? If not it is really something so easy to use and why not get paid just for using the internet! Do you want to earn Cash, gift cards and more? If so you will want to join Swagbucks!

If you are not familiar with Swagbucks, here is some information:

Basically, you get paid to search! Seriously….when you search through Swagbucks search engine, you could win
Swagbucksthat can be redeemed for cash through Paypal, gift cards or so many different prizes! My go to thing to get is the $5 Amazon gift cards.I just traded in my points for my 24th $5 Amazon card. I joined Swagbucks in December 2009 so in just a little over a year I "made" $120 by using the internet and doing regular searches- just like you would look something up on Google. 

Here are some ways you can earn Swagbucks:

First I would suggest you download the toolbar. I have it set up so when I am looking for something whether it is Facebook, my e-mail, something for school, a picture WHATEVER I just type it in the toolbar and there ya go! I also have Swagbucks set as my homepage which reminds me to use it as much as possible. Remember the more you use it the more you earn!
Search the web:
I use my swagbucks toolbar instead of Google and anytime I go to a site or search something I use it. Each time you win with a search it is usually around 7-20 Swagbucks and believe it or not, they add up FAST!

Daily Polls:
You can also do daily polls for which you will win 2 Swagbucks automatically so that’s a guaranteed 60 a month.

Mega Swagbucks Day:
Also, every Friday is Mega Swagbucks day and you could win anywhere from 50-1000 Swagbucks in one search! One Friday I won 200 Swagbucks in one search!

Refer People:
For every person you refer, you will earn whatever Swagbucks they earn through searches!

Taking Surveys:
Another way to earn Swagbucks is by taking surveys online through Swagbucks. Each one is worth a different amount.

Download the Toolbar: 
I mentioned this already but another benefit to having the toolbar installed is that you get 1 Swagbuck each day just for having the toolbar installed. There is another 30 Swagbucks
So if you haven't signed up for Swagbucks I HIGHLY recommend it! Go here to sign up and you will automatically receive 30 Swagbucks! If you have an account already- start using it again- once you get into using it on a regular basis you will see how easy it is to rack up those prizes!!
