Couponing my style
Tuesday, October 18, 2011 | By Tanya39

Well in case you haven't guessed I love to save. My favorite sites are which I just found thru here on someones blog who no longer blogs here, and a WalMart site. Those are just a few I get my coupons from for shopping which I still use my, and  which I plan my groceries and clothing buys from each day.

I tend to go by what the coupon says when shopping. I never clear a shelf of jeans or food or other. Clearing a shelf is a clear ethical violation in my opinion for coupon use. I am self declared frugal and tightwad woman who just happens to be a coupon queen as well in my state of Minnesota. Others claim they are coupon queens and frugal, but I know different. They may want to be a coupon queen, but they don't have what it takes to be a coupon queen. They don't spend hours hunting down bargains on the computer, or searching for printable coupons while their children study nearby making you multitask between mom and coupon queen like me. They don't ask a stranger at the local dump and recycle center for the coupons they are throwing away, because I don't want to go back into the bin. They don't plan every hour and minute of the day with sites of stores. That is what it takes to be a coupon queen like me. I will even go out in a blizzard to get the store deal with coupons. Yea I do it in the lull of the blizzard, but still if they want to be a coupon queen like me that's what they have to do.

a woman in the library system in my town claims she is a coupon queen like me to the point that she was chosen to teach classes on how to be a coupon queen, instead of me when all know it is really me and not her. Long story short she had to refund all class attendees when her teaching did not work. They had to come to me for clarification on how to be one. To this day people still stop me in stores and thank me for teaching them how to coupon responsibly and legally.

E.L.F. Cosmetics at  is a makeup company that has cheap good makeup for the new woman in your family and you can use an online coupon for extra savings. Oh yes always ask for refund if the product you purchase is found to be damaged in the package, or bad tasting like it has expired. Always check expire dates in any grocery store you visit. If you have a coupon for the product that is expired make sure the manager knows it, so you can get rain check on the item you want, but they are out of good dated items. I got a rain check on a good deal on cheese slices that are usually $4 each for 2/$5. If it hadn't been for the new program extreme coupon I would have gotten it when it was on sale for 2/$5 when all the products were not expired, but someone cleared all, but the expired ones the immoral idiot! No etiquette just left it for whoever like found it. Like we want food poisoning. Etiquette requires if you know products are expired but don't say anything to a manager it is the same as attempted murder, and punishable by law, because we have a moral obligation to report it to manager, so they aren't left with the lawsuit of attempted murder. All grocery stores now have cameras in every isle, so there is no hiding who did the clearing shelf and leaving the bad. Come on woman you know who you are show some coupon use morals like I do. And she calls herself a coupon queen. I at least have morals and etiquette when I coupon.

Here are a Few Tightwad Links for Living Frugal
Sunday, October 16, 2011 | By Tanya39 you can order in bulk online from them for everything your family or business would need in life. I am using it to order my home school supplies. Erasers, Pencils, Math sheets, Writing sheets, etc....another thing if there is a blizzard don't expect delivery of the items until the storm clears. People have been known to die 5 feet from their car/vehicle because they couldn't find it in the storm and that goes for house and apartments too. The postman is a person too, so why should he risk his life for your frugal lifestyle. Those who are lucky enough to live in Arizona still, and yea I really miss it in the winter lol. Order what you can on-line, and save your sanity for trying to find what you need when the store is out and they have to order more for you. Bypass them and use the site to order it yourself.

Here is a list of what you can order in bulk on-line:



Toilet Paper


Kitchen cutlery

Cleaning supplies

and the most important Halloween Candy.

It is a short list, but you can go check it out on-line.

Another link is sign up to be a member and you will get advance notice to sales that are upcoming, and fliers in the mail with special coupons. On the outskirts of town of Moorhead, MN there's a Super Target now. I was just there visiting my daughter and we went to get Halloween Candy for a dollar too. Another link a warning tho most of the super list coupon area is ineffective except for my coupons it is good, and you can print them off at the library in any town, as the site for my coupons is safe. Coupon use at WalMart is iffy now at best. The cheapskates are constantly trying to make you pay more even with coupons. I like my DL WalMart for emergency picnic supplies in the summer for the Sams Pop that is 78 cents for 2 liters. Especially when Dollar Tree and Family Dollar are closed for the 4th of July. Not WalMart the only thing I will God Bless them for in life. Here is another on-line link you may like if you are a book enthusiast it is an Ebay link. I count Ebay as an excellent Winter garage sale saver for kids clothes, and adults. What I don't make aka sew, knit, or crochet I buy here for books and clothes cheaply. I recently lost 90 lbs and I'm in size 16 jeans again after 22 years, so I entered an auction on for a lot of jeans that started at one penny for 18 pairs of Wranglers. I lost of course because someone beat me. It did have a reserve that had to be met, and I could have met it, but someone wanted it more than me and went over the reserve price the little turd! Still a good site to go to in the Winter. If you are a grocery store shopper like Cashwise foods like my daughter uses. Go online to their site at plan your trip ahead of time they even give you a list to make of what you need that can be printed out at the library for a dime, or cheaper yet 6 cents on campus library, if you are a student. Well I will keep thinking and finding links I and my family like that you may find useful in your life. by for now and no I am not going on Hiatus anytime soon. Frugal and Tightwad Tanya

Blue whitener not available
Saturday, March 07, 2009 | By Hemmigrammus

During the 1950s, my mother used a little blue bag (blueitt) when washing the 'whites'.  This product was manufactured by Reckit & Coleman.  This product is no longer available in England, however, through Thriftyfun, I've discovered its available in America.

Females termed this product as the blue whitener.

Pink Outside the Box
Monday, September 29, 2008 | By RuralAngel

I’m entering a weekly contest at called Pink Outside  the Box.

1st  weeks question:  How do you assert your personal style at work.

   My answer:  I always assert my style with a smile.

2nd  weeks question:  Tell us about a role model in your life that stays true to their personal style.

    My answer:  I admire any one who recovers from the depths of any tragic misery.  These survivors are all the greatest of role models.


How am I doing?  4 more questions to go.  That means 4 more witty answers.

I could win a trip for 2 to NY, a shopping spree with a stylist, lunch and a blackberry.  A friend also gets the same prizes.    LOOK!  I’m on the list of entrants.  My answer is completely different than anybody else’s.  I don’t think weight loss or make up are Pinking Outside the box.

My husband thinks of me as a twittering bird and, in face, I AM on !! Working out the feed thing here - but I so try to post all the new blog entries here at twitter, fyi -

It's my birthday Sat.  Happy Birthday to ME!  Those greeting cards so count - so far I have only gotten one  - from my mother-in-law of all people! I have it out to look at - Wish everyone were as thoughtful in an old-fashioned way.  Other than that - and my loving husband - I only get greetings from online computer systems. Ugh.

I vow I WILL get more and more meticulous about observing birthday dates! (I do have the cache of greeting cards at hand...)
