Hello Friends! Its time for me to get another WEEKEND NOTES post out for you guys! This is only my 3rd post of this series. Thank you for all who sent me feedback on what you thought of it! I truly appreciate all your thoughts on this series. From what I read, all the information in the last post was very helpful and that I love!!!
I will keep reminding you to buy the Sunday paper. If you are new to couponing, THE SUNDAY PAPER IS A MUST!! More info below!
So lets get on with it..
I KNOW THIS POST WILL LOOK THE VERY SAME AS THE WEEKS BUT ITS NOT. THERE IS LOTS OF NEW INFORMATION IN EACH WEEKEND NOTES POST. PLEASE READ THROUGH THIS FULLY BECAUSE I DON'T WANT YOU TO MISS OUT ON ANY NEW INFORMATION! SOME INFO MAY BE REPEATED BUT MOST IS NOT!
*I have added a new element to the sales information. If you are like me, and still trying to figure this entire coupon thing out, you should check out COMMON SENSE WITH MONEY because she does a great job of telling us with coupons should go with the sale items.. Extremely helpful!! I put a link for each drugstore. This is not just beauty information. Its for all items in the store!!! So check it out!
*You will see some repeats on here and it will stay that way. I know a lot of you read this blog daily but there are also a ton of new readers each day and I want them to have the same information as you!
* I got a few emails about other grocery store savings information besides Ingles. I am sorry but at this time, I am going doing grocery store sale information for the store I use. Yes, I know there are many other grocery stores, but I just don't want to post everyone of them. You can check out Money Saving Mom for a complete list of all the stores across the US.
*Married Life post are back in full force. I got this weeks post done on Thursday even when I thought I wouldn't have time. I just sat down and didn't stop typing until it was finished. If you want to check out this week's Married Life Post Click HERE
* I have added a new widget for RECENT POST right at the top of this blog under the globe. It contains a lot of my most recent post with a snippet of info on each one. Just click and it will take you there!
* I got an email asking when I was going to change the design of the blog to a winter or Christmas scene. Well.. I am not planning on doing that till after Thanksgiving. Same with the decorations for the house. I will actually probably be putting the tree up a little later this year because all these cats and kittens I have around here will tear it apart!
* Also if you are interested in the first blog I started you can click HERE to check it out. I think I am going to start bringing some of those post over here!
* I have also been working really hard to update TWITTER. So if you'd like, follow and we can talk. Also I am always updating FACEBOOK so if you would like be friends, just send me a request and let me know you are a blogging friend and I will accept!
* I need to let you guys know that my bloglovin and hellocotton pages have been taken down. I did not want to do this, I put much consideration into the decision but the stalker girl who has been blocked from this site was accessing my blog from those sites. I know this is not fair to a lot of you guys but we have to stop her. I love all my readers.. even the ones who stay quiet and who I don't know. But this person has crossed the line on here many many times and I am taking the precautions to keep her away. Sorry if this inconvenience's anyone.

* I still haven't finished the computer maintenance post. It will be up sometime in the up coming week. I think this is important for ALL of us.. and for people like my dear mom who has no idea how to clean up their computer!
* I have been asked over and over about how I raise my cats.. the tricks I use.. the products I use.. all of it.. so going to be working on some post on pet care in the upcoming week. I still have a lot to do on this post, so it might be a while before its done!
* Its been requested for more of ~ Today's Looks ~ so I will be trying to more of them for you guys, but be expecting one soon!

There are a ton of online sites that offer you coupons that you can print out or codes that you can use. A few of my favorites are ...
From what I can tell there will be only 1 coupon insert in this Sunday's paper. If I find out different, I will be sure to update this asap. ..Also before you walk away with it.. check to see if the coupons are actually in the paper. I have bought a paper where the coupons were stolen. I went back.. made a fuss and got it replaced for free.. Another thing to consider.. you can buy more than one paper if you want more coupons!
Coupons do differ in different areas- so you will need to confirm when you actually get your paper. But this is a great way to start early with some ad matching or plan to buy multiple papers.

I also want you guys to know about this coupon..
This is one of my favorite coupons that has been showing up at COUPONS.COM for the last couple Thanksgiving seasons. Walmart always has it in stock (mine does anyway) and it is simply the best ham. This KENTUCKY LEGENDS PRINTABLE COUPON is valid on ham, turkey breast or their new premium bacon.
There are several more coupons just in time for Thanksgiving available at COUPONS.COM. Check out all of the PRINTABLE COUPONS available.
Our litter of Persian Kittens are getting ready to go to new homes. If you are interested at all.. email me and I will send you an application to email back to me. I do check references.. its not because I don't trust you but our main goal is to find the best loving homes possible for these kittens. They are just like our kids and they mean so much to me. It breaks my heart to sell them but we have to get ready for the next litter to come. In the mean time, I will be buying another male to breed with the females. Super excited about that!
Also All You has some great coupons in it this month of November.. I will get a full post up of all their coupons in the coming days but this magazine does offer some great advice to save money along with their coupons. So grab it when you are out and about!
With All You, Most issues have $80 to $120 worth of coupons in them and often, the coupons are a much higher-value than what you’ll ever see in the newspaper. In addition, at least a few times per year, there will be a coupon for a completely free item. Love that!
ALL YOU magazine retails for $2.49 per issue at Walmart. The best deal you’ll usually see online is around $1.50 per issue.
If you’ve not seen ALL YOU magazine before, You should flip through an issue at your local Walmart before spending the money to pay for this subscription. It’s a great deal, but only if you’ll use the coupons and like the magazine. So check it out before you make the purchase.
I know I am kinda behind on some emails. I will be working hard tomorrow and Monday to get them answered. Please be patient!!
I am not posting last weeks links.. There was just too many! You can get to them them all by going to the bottom of the blog under that last post on the page and click OLDER POST.. This is right about the little black shadow family of ours. Now you keep doing this over and over and you will see all last weeks post. So sorry but it would have took an hour or so to get those links up. Again, as I said in the beginning of this post, you will now see the new widget for NEW POST that contains a lot of my most recent post. Help yourself to that too!
For the couple of you that I offended in this POST about the shooting the dog. I haven't responded to your emails but let me tell you, I was super upset. I still am. I stand by what I say. If he draws blood of anyone of my cats or kittens he will be LUCKY to make it out alive. You don't have to call PETA on me. He could end up at the pound instead. Scott and I are trying to handle this but I don't trust him anymore but for the time being he is alive and well.
I want you all to know, I love your emails. I really do, even the ones that are not so nice when done with respect. I might want to publish some of them, but I WILL NOT use your name or email. I don't do that. I have set up this system because I have found it works better to weed out the nutty people! Please don't hesitate to send those emails in and tell me what you think about any post!
Hope you have a great week!!
I will let you guys know if I update this post and remember you can get to it from the link at the very top of the blog!! And if you are out shopping and have a smart phone, you can pull this list up while you are in the store. It will help!
