    Okay, it is the last day of the year. So what did you do in 2017 that saved you money? I am all ears and will be taking notes. In addition, I will lead off with my own moves to save money. My biggest single money savings move of 2017 was getting Amazon Fire Stick for our 2 TVs. At the same time I cut out our cable TV. Net savings for the year over $600. This comes from saving $80 per month by cutting Comcast Cable TV. Actually I am really saving $55 per month because along with my...

    Okay, I got a few good ONLINE Black Friday deals. I love buying online because you are crazy if you think ol' PJ is going to fight the crazed crowds in the stores. Anyway, even though I got some good deals ONLINE, I have this gnawing fear that I missed out on some even better deals. Therefore if you found some good ONLINE Black Friday deals still active, please post them here. If they aren't easy to find, then please provide the links if possible. Okay, I'll start out with my very obvious Black Friday buys. Of course, this means...

    Does anybody know what Barack Obama was doing during his college years? We know that he was the president of the Harvard Law Review but do we even know what articles, if any, he wrote for it? Beyond that his college years are almost completely blank as to his grades or activitivies to the extent that his time at Columbia University has been completely erased from memory. No professor nor student from that time even remembers him attending classes at Columbia. Compare that big MSM yawn to the recent mainstream media frenzy which included a 2223 word front page Washington Post...
  • THE COUPON WHISPERER: FREE 1290 MG Omega 3 Fish Oil Pills

    The Coupon Whisperer ^ | June 6, 2013 | PJ-Comix
    You should be taking Omega 3 fish oil (or flax seed oil) pills for your heart health. Problem is that these pills can be a bit pricey. If you want a bottle of 60 1290 MG fish oil pills the regular price runs between $10.49 and per $12.99 bottle. However, this week the sales price at Walgreens for the Sundown 1290 MG fish oil pills is only $7. But wait...THERE'S MORE!!! When you buy one of these Sundowns you get a Register Rewards printout for another $7. Normally if you use that register rewards on another Sundown, you won't...

    As many of you know I have a HUGE passion for couponing. I mean I eat, breath, sleep, and dream coupons. It is constantly on my mind, especially working out new coupon strategy scenarios. Like last Thursday when I figured out how to score FREE Kellogg's breakfast bars which enabled me to also score FREE BO sticks. I won't go into the exact details but the first item did allow me to score the second item FREE. However, on Saturday morning when I attempted to do this same deal again, I found out that the Kellogg's coupons had expired...

    The Coupon Whisperer ^ | January 23, 2013 | PJ-Comix
    No specific couponing tips in this edition. Just a philosophical look at the art of couponing and why it is now an absolute necessity in the Age Of Obama and Big Government attempts to further separate you from your money. As many of you who previously pooh-poohed couponing are now finding out due to paycheck sticker shock, The Bamster has now reduced your monthly take-home pay by anywhere to at least $50 to $100 per month and the socialists now want to take even MORE. So how to fight back? My answer is to make even greater use of...

    So Groupon and Living Social are in trouble.  Color me unsurprised; I never got the Groupon business model.  Well, I guess I got the business model--it's not that complicated--but I never got why people thought that eventually this model was going to be worth a zillion dollars.   Coupons basically serve two functions for businesses--advertising, and price discrimination.  Advertising means it brings in new customers by making them aware of your service, or giving them an incentive to try it.  Price discrimination, on the other hand, is what food processors do with grocery store coupons: it lets them sell their...

    GERMANTOWN, TN - (WMC-TV) - An extreme couponer claims she was attacked at a dollar store when she said the manager refused to honor her coupons. The entire ordeal was caught on camera. The sign at the store states coupons are accepted at Dollar Tree but a shopper is now nursing a busted lip and popped blood vessels in her eye after she says the manager refused to deal with her "wad of coupons". She said she was attacked while leaving the store. Missy Monzo-Marte says she was shopping at the Dollar Tree in Germantown with a friend, both of...

    Dear Dave, Is it worth the time and effort to use coupons, or are they just a waste of time and a ploy to get you to buy things? Tammy Dear Tammy, Coupons are definitely a ploy to entice you to buy something you may not have purchased otherwise. But that doesn’t mean they’re bad things. The practical and sensible application of coupons can definitely help you save money. The main things to watch out for when using coupons are overbuying and spending your money on things you don’t really need. Seriously, you don’t need to hit Sam’s or Costco...

    The Coupon Whisperer ^ | June 22, 2012 | PJ-Comix
    Using the amazing powers that I developed as The Coupon Whisperer, I am now combining those skills to become the South Florida Barter King. I am sort of inspired to do so by the new "Barter Kings" show even though that series is obviously highly scripted. However, since I had some good barter experiences in the past, I plan to hone my bartering skills hopefully up to the level of my couponing skulls. Yesterday, I performed my first coupon/barter deal. I picked up two dozen FREE bottles of body wash using coupons and traded them to my friend the...

    I don't often post new editions of The Coupon Whisperer but when I do, you know they are good. And in this edition I will show how you can drastically CUT your food expenditures. If you are even a casual couponer you know it is not difficult to score stuff like toothpaste and body wash for FREE or close to it. Plus you should have no trouble finding coupons for many food items. However, the major part of any food budget is meat and where do you find coupons for those packages of steak and other such goodies? Well,...

    PLAISTOW, N.H. - A local wife and mother tries to not spend a dime when she goes grocery shopping, and she said there's more to it than using coupons. Kathy Spencer is the author of "How to Shop for Free," and she also runs a website that helps track good deals at the store. The first thing she does at the grocery store is grab the supermarket flier and see what deals can be found. She also stops by the customer service counter to see if they have any other coupons available. Spencer said shoppers should also look for coupons...

    "I looooove Kentucky Fried Chicken! I LOVE IT!!!" That was my wife recently gushing over a fresh bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Her emphatic enthusiasm in her thick Venezuelan accent would make for a great KFC commercial. It was one of those things that you had to be there to appreciate.Anyway, you get the idea of how much we enjoy KFC here. I find opening a fresh bucket of KFC to be positively intoxicating. Therefore I am always looking for good KFC deals. Yesterday, I thought I had a good deal with a 10 piece bucket for $11. However,...

    Let me begin this DUFU edition with a blatant self-plug but, as I shall demonstrate, it actually does have to do with the DUFUs. First the blatant plug: My FIRST Kindle article, HOW TO EARN MONEY AT NASCAR RACES, is now available online. It is about how NASCAR fans can earn money while scoring cheap tickets at the NASCAR races. Based on my experiences of following the NASCAR circuit for two full seasons and parts of several more. As I mentioned in the article, I tested out one of the techniques provided in the article just a few weeks...

    The Family Dollar stores have a DESERVED reputation for being hostile towards coupons. Some of the stores accept coupons with no problems but others act like they absolutely HATE coupons...and couponers. One Family Dollar store in Broward County, at the corner of Broward Blvd. and State Road 7, is especially notable for their hostility towards coupons and I normally avoid it like the plague. However, on Friday, I was looking for some easy laughs so I went to that particular store more for entertainment purposes than to get the product, Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Kits. Yes, I did get my...

    According to Gault, you never have to buy any over-the-counter medications at full price if you follow a few smart shopping rules. Here are her top five rules for buying medicine cheaply: 1. Generic supermarket or drugstore brands don’t beat warehouse brands in terms of price. **** 2. Combining deals on name-brand drugs at supermarkets or drugstores can match, even beat, warehouse prices. **** 3. Save your coupons. **** 4. Use coupons on smaller packages. **** 5. Look for online coupons – but be careful.
