Free Chocolate, Darn Lightening + KFC Rainchecks

I’m so bummed we couldn’t go live this morning for FirstNews with our Coupon Mom. 

I even wore something bright and cheery today...and it's thundering and pouring outside :(

Lightening is real bad for our live truck, since it has a tall mast, it acts as a lightening rod.  We’d basically get electrocuted if we tried to go live this morning.  But…Chrissy gave us some great ideas on saving money at the grocery store:

TIP:  Buy several Sunday papers, and save the coupons for when the item is on sale.  Companies WANT you to go out and use the coupon right away—but stores wait a few weeks for them to go on sale.

THIS, is how Chrissy got cereal for 8-cents a box.  Hy-Vee has some Kellogg’s cereal for $1.58 on sale, so Chrissy used a coupon from a few weeks ago, and got them for 8-cents!  (Since she bought 5 Sunday papers, she has that many to use today!)

**REMINDER:**  Let me know if you try the free Mars candy bar offer I mentioned yesterday—supplies are limited, just (“just” I say…) 250-thousand bars! 10am central time! Log on: www.realchocolate.com

That and some KFCs are now offering rainchecks for those who couldn’t use their coupons.  Oh boy…Oprah, you caused a riot!

 Have a great weekend—

Please, don't get sick...please don't get sick...

Please, don't get sick...please don't get sick...

 PS:  I’m getting that scratchy feeling in my throat.  The feeling I’m about to get sick.  Must. Not. Get. Sick!  Too much work to do for ratings this month.  Tomorrow I’m emceeing the Kindest Kansas Citian awards banquet.  Gotta stay healthy…at least one…more..day!

  1. I got the free candy bar coupon. It took forever to get into their site. I started at 8am and finally got thru around 8:30am. They sent me an e-mail saying I will get the coupon in 6 weeks. Thanks for the tip on this and for the Kellogg’s cereal coupons!!! I printed off three $1 coupons!!!!

  2. Just wanted to say that I love your blog! I actually took a class with Chrissy and she is wonderful! I am new still to the whole coupon thing but I am getting there! Thanks for all of the info that you post and hope you don’t get sick!!

    • Thanks Lee! Free chocolate is always a good deal 😉
