(I'm hoping to make this a montly event - we'll see how it goes! You don't have to donate your items during the week that I'm hosting this, just take a picture of the items you are donating. Come back here on Monday to add your link.)

Where do you get your coupons from? You got some great deals here!! I find that I don't get all the coupons in my paper that others seem to be getting.

I have started buying the Minneapolis Star Tribune. They get so many more coupons than our local paper! I usually buy at least 2 or 3 of them every week. I've found that the coupon inserts depends on the newspapers circulation, since our paper doesn't have much a circulation the coupons stink!

Thanks, that is a great idea. I will check into that.
