Food for thought Friday

My husband is always laughing at me for going through boxes and packaging before it gets thrown out. Packages are a great source for coupons, so always check the inside of a box. You might also have sweepstakes codes inside. But the best part is Box Tops! Do you Box Top? It is a program for schools. Each box top is worth 10 cents for you child's school. Most schools are on this program now and offer neat incentives for the students that bring them in. Keep your eyes open and don't let them go to waste. They are on a huge variety of products including, General Mills, Betty Crocker, and Kimberly Clark just to name a few. A lot of the products that go on promotions are on them too. Even if your child is not in school yet, donate them to someone who is or save them for when your child is. I love helping schools with products I buy everyday. So next time don't through that box away, check for coupons, sweeps, and box tops!! Also check out as a great resources list of coupons on these products.

  1. Here's a question for your Q&A (unrelated to your post) I have heard and seen expressed by many couponers that it is usually the best deal to use your coupons to buy the smallest size items you can (trial or travel sizes.) I am having a hard time understanding this concept - sure you get lots of free stuff by doing it that way, but what if you really need and use that item, a travel size really isn't going to last very long. So maybe that's the key, those coupons you have that aren't your reagular items, you can use for small sizes but ones for things you would use regularly use for a more nomal size product. I don't know - what is your take?
