Hi Everyone-

I’m sorry I disappeared last week without any notice, the hubby has been a little stressed out at work lately and the economic downturn put a little extra strain on us. So you know what we decided to do? We decided to spend a little money and go on a cheap family vacation to the beautiful beaches of Ventura County, California. It’s not Malibu, heh, but it’s very affordable and it was a great time- the kids loved the beach.

This is a little late, but here is last weeks Albertsons Weekly Ad highlights, I’ll post this weeks ad tonight. – As always, please feel free to comment below or send me an email!

Albertsons Going Bagless?

by Coupon Sarah on August 1, 2011

No Plastic Bags at Albertsons

Reader Jerry emailed me this pic from her local Albertsons in Los Angeles (Santa Monica).

This appears to be a city wide ban in Santa Monica and not just for Albertsons. Other cities in California have implemented similar bans:

  • Calabasas
  • Fairfax
  • Long Beach
  • Malibu
  • Manhattan Beach
  • Oakland
  • San Francisco
  • San Jose

I’m not an environmentalist, but I think this is a good thing. Paper bags are still an option in most places – but I try to use reusable bags as much as I can. Although this can be a little challenging on my big stockpile runs. ;)

Etsy has tons of cute handmade grocery bags like these:

Extreme Couponing – What You Need to Know

by Coupon Sarah on July 29, 2011

I’m going to put this post up since I get quite a few emails about the subject. I feel like I might even make Extreme couponingthis post its own page sometime in the future. heh.

Anyway, yes- I’m a professional couponer and I spend a tooooon of time on this blog. But, you don’t need to invest multiple hours a day couponing because that’s why you’ve got me. I’m here to help guide you and source the deals so you don’t have to spend the time.

So… yes, extreme couponing is awesome, and you can save 101% of the total cost BUT, don’t expect to get $1,300 shopping trips for free every week- there’s a ton of planning that goes into a score like that. However, if you listen to me and do your couponing correctly, you’ll be able to consistently save 30-50% off your weekly trips. that’s a lot of money honey!

What you need to know: well, you need to know the above. You also should check out the Coupon Basics where we list some great stuff like resources on where to get coupons outside of our blog, coupon policies (I have Albertsons Coupon Policy listed, but it’s pretty generic) and more.

You can message me directly or you can leave a comment below and I’ll reply just as quickly.
