New ways to get the most from your ALL YOU coupons

Food lion
This week kraft salad dressing is BOGO free. You can get 2 bottles free when you use your coupon from the August all you. BOGO free 2/$2.79. Minus $2.79 coupon + 3 packs Kool-aid. Total = $.60 cents for 2 bottles of dressing and 3 pkgs kool-aid. Just keep in mind that the limit is two for each transaction (so if you have multiple coupons make a couple of trips). Lori also found a coupon hanging by the koolaid at our food lion. It was $1.00 off food lion sugar when you buy 5 kool-aid packs. That makes their sugar $.89 cents for a 5lb bag. I know everyone has a lot of kool-aid now thanks to all you coupons...LOL.

Winn Dixie
This week chyrstal light is on sale BOGO free. Use the Kraft coupon from the August ALL YOU mag and get 2 free.

By the way, the Sept. All you magazine is out. The coupons are not as good as last month (we got spoiled), but there are still some good coupons.

Sunday, August 17th Coupon Ideas

I have always gotten coupons from the Sunday paper or the Internet. I have read other blogs that talk about buying from a coupon cutting service. I never tried it until this week. I wanted to let everyone know it worked great. Selina posted the deal about Fusion razors being on clearance for $3.50 at our Wal-mart. I thought this would be a great time to try this since the razors would be free with the $4.00/1 coupon. I used I ordered them on Tue. night. They were mailed on Wed. and I received them on Friday. When you see a really good sale coming up or if you are short on coupons you use all the time, then give this a try. Happy Birthday Selina!!!!!!!!!!

Free McDonalds sandwich coupon

Here is an offer from McDonalds for a free sandwich/biscuit when you buy a drink.

One is called JUST CHILL which has only a couple of coupons but the one on the back is for buy 1 get 1 free IBC root beer six packs. The other booklet is SMART SUMMERTIME SAVINGS. Here is a list of coupon matches for this week's ad:
