"MATCH UP COUPONS WITH SALES: It can seem like a poker game sometime in knowing when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em. In the coupon “game”, playing your coupon at the right time can really save you money. If you match up an item on sale with a coupon, you can really increase your savings — sometimes even getting free products! This can take some time, so that is where I come in.

I do the hard work for you each week. I match-up Price Chopper, Hy-Vee, Hen House, Target, Walmart (when available), CVS and Walgreens each week so you know which coupons to use.

So, now that you know how to read and use your coupons, you probably want to know how to find them. Stay tuned and we’ll cover that next week!" - http://www.pennypinchinmom.com

Although I definitely liked the Fire Stick, I didn't find anything that that widely separates it from its streaming competitors..." - Caroline Moss for Business Insider
