Thread Details

In this forum, we are all here to help each other and learn. (Crikey. Almost two years since I have joined and someone had to explain what a particular smiley meant just last week. Stick Out Tongue) I learned something from a wise q girl a long time ago...."A coupon is a form of payment." Armed with that knowledge, don't fear using the q as long as you are using them as the manufacturer states.

I know there are a couple of websites around that offer to teach you how to coupon shop for a fee. I just wanted to take a moment to tell you there is NO NEED to pay anyone a fee to learn to shop. Smilie All you need is SD and the coupon love you can get here is amazing.

Coupon shopping takes one thing....the confidence to learn and try. It can be scary but you can do it. Again, no need to pay someone. There are many many Jedi masters here that like to help Padawans.

I know it seems like SD can be overwhelming. Especially for those with little time to peruse the entire board. Here are some of my fave threads...

Here's a thread with the rules. I like it because the first two posts have a good list of abbreviations for nooblets. There is some really good info in it too. Not just boring old rules....

The Drugstore and Grocery Store Index and Information Thread is mod stickied to the top. Maybe you'd like to create a personal sticky of some of them? At the top of the thread, on the far right is a thread tool link. You can subscribe (my personal fave) or sticky any thread you like.

LASTLY......don't be afraid to ask! Read the wiki. (What's a and/or Wiki? It's the first post after the initial post in a thread. It can be updated by any registered user. Just like Wikipedia!) And then if you still have a question, I am sure someone will help. PM, IM, phone a friend or bat call. Just ask. Smilie

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. A long ad is a normal ad paper like you would get for CVS, Rite Aid, etc. In some areas the same store will put out a shorter ad with less things on sale. CVS does it in my area sometimes. It will be the same size and sometimes with the same number of pages but with much fewer items.

TY. Smilie Sometimes I feel so irrelevant now. No CVS, no Target and almost all WAG's prices are about $2 per deal higher than ya'lls. Makes it hard to contribute. Encouragement is all I have to offer. Embarrassment
I am so new that my toes aren't even swollen from shopping yet. I have a question and I beg for your help. A friend who showed me the site here showed me a thread that actually had some future info that can help me to know what coupons I can order to get me a stockpile going. It was like inserts that hasn't been published yet maybe a few weeks away. I thought maybe now that I'm home and signed up somehow it won't let me go to certain places till I do so many post. Is this true here? Could this be why I can't fund what I'm looking for....Please help this crazed woman find her way. TYIA

I am hoping that sometime in the future we will get an "Insert" or "Coupon" icon to help with this issue. I have asked for it. So hopefully.....Please

I did a few searches for the thread you inquired about with no luck. Maybe you can ask your friend to send you a link??
