Thread Details

** We would like to welcome HawiianDawn as the new OP **.

Please thank
thelahaiesfamil for all of her hard work in this thread.**

Being a military spouse has its many challenges. One of the challenges is trying to feed your family on a limited income. I thought it would be helpful to the many of us SD'rs out there that are military or military spouses to have an official Deca/ Commissary thread. There are so many great deals and YMMV by store, but at least here you may be able to look for a deal that you might not have known about before. I HTH someone save a little for thier family!! Enjoy! Smilie

It's 25 cents per copy. They get most inserts- P&G, short versions of RP and SS. Never get the Unilever or Huggies mq but I can get those elsewhere.
there are newspapers with inserts that only charge 25 cents!! EEK!Faint

There's a thread here about an Amazon sale on toilet paper that made the FP. Seriously? Who pays for tp?? Dontknow I have to say that a lot of it made for some very funny reading though. laugh out loud
well I have been known to pay for TP from time time-last year there was much better sales plus I live with a paper waster, but atleast I never ever pay full price!!

I wonder if they are still holding a case for me. Of course, with them, I wonder about a lot of things.
Do you happen to know how many KY are in a case? I got lucky with the coupon (and have a ton of people printing it for me) so I'm going to order a case once we move so I can buy some groceries.

I'll admit I pay for toilet paper. DH will only allow Charmin in the bathroom and since we only have a couple stores, it is hard to find deals on Charmin. Hubby is pretty brand picky.

Nutro didn't reset for me Frown I finally picked up my first two bags of it today.

I brought my $78 order down to $1.98 thanks to the earlier print of KY (from like last month) Picked up some Butterball ground turkey for $1.23-$1.29 lb after the 50 cent peelie on it. I love buying stuff we actually need with coupons and showing the people behind me in line you can buy fresh meat and dairy items with coupons and not just mustard.

Yahoo!

Have you read any of the drama on another forum where a store manager told a patron she was "profiting" from using overage - and thus "abusing her commissary privileges.."

EEK!

No I missed that one. The only way I can see someone "profiting" is by getting cash back but even that is a tricky line because they get reimbursed for the coupons. I feel like DECA created this great coupon policy but the store managers aren't too fond of it (kind of like Walmart)

Edited to add: Just found it. I don't agree with how that store manager treated her but looking at some of the trips on there, I can somewhat see how managers are feeling now. Ordering 200 + rolls of tape just seems absolutely crazy to me (My own personal opinion...don't flame me for it) But I'm also a fly under the radar as much as possible coupon shopper.

200 rolls of tape equals $156.00 - 200 in coupons equals $44 for Charmin toilet paper. I'm just sayin'. Dontknow Then you donate the tape. Stick Out Tongue

Yea but I'm the type of person that would rather just spend the money on the TP than throw the spotlights on myself. The most of any overage coupons I have ever used was around 20 of the Pert Plus coupons because I like to stay under the radar. That is my style of couponing. 200 + of those IPs definately would not fly here (no matter what the policy says)

Not to mention I'd lose some of that overage having to buy new ink from printing out those IPs.

On to another subject, the Weber coupon that everyone is using for the marinades has in the fine print "Limit one per purchase/household." Do we interpret that as one per transaction then? That is the first time I have seen that wording on a coupon.

I didn't get it in my inserts so I bought some and then saw it in the fine print. They took two totally different ideas and put them together into one statement. Can I buy multiples and say I'm buying them for different households? Wink

With 36 K-Y Rofl2 K-Y has a way of drawing attention.... Wink

I used to try "flying under the radar" But they picked on me anyway. So now I just move in like the Goodyear Blimp....

Lol...today I kept it in my green bag until checkout. My cashier is a couponer herself so she knows why I was buying it. If I ever get one that asks I'm going to tell them I hold KY jelly wrestling matches on the weekends to help support my couponing habit. Free admission with one recent insert Wink That should keep them quiet.

One per purchase/household. Scratchchin Hey wait! Maybe it means you can't have BBQ's and share your marinade with others. Only for your one household! Whee That's gonna suck for the people with multiple wives. laugh out loud

Since I was the only one couponing at one of the stores when I got here and they had no idea what the policy was, flying under the radar didn't last through two trips. *sigh*

Hey guys - I am so out of touch and flustered and NOT caught up at all.....but in case it hasn't been posted - I just got some lunchables at the comm for free and for 50¢....the ones with fruit were 50¢ after q and didn't beep, the little subs were free but beeped...I didn't think they should have bc the q said sub along with several other kinds....and the cashier agreed and pushed it through....but anyhoo - just a heads up.

On another note - anyone have anything GOOD to say about FT Leonard Wood? Hubby has been there several times for schools, I have been there to visit him while he was there....and now if nothing changes....we have orders to go there in April. Yippee. lol

Hope you are all well....would love if I was here wayyyyy more often, just doesn't seem to happen. Many hugs to all!
