Printable Coupons....YOU can be the expert!

Do you get tired of people questioning if your coupon is "real" or not?  Do you get tired of checkers staring at them like they are auditing for the IRS?  Do cashiers assume you have a copied coupon just because you print in black and white? If so, we are here to help you know how to "prove" it's authentic!

When looking at a coupon printed from, look at the experation date box.  Do you see the small soft gray (if you print black and white) or yellow (if you print color) circles?  This authenticates the coupon.  If the coupon were copied, those circles would NOT be there.   

I hate to admit it, but I have educated MANY cashiers on this!  I want to do my part to make sure VALID coupons are NOT being denied as invalid.  I do NOT copy my coupons and I want to save the most I can. If you don't know how to print in black and white, here is all you need to do...go into your printers settings, and switch the color settings to "gray scale!"  Take a minute to print a coupon here and look at it!

Reminder: FREE Target Reusable Tote

Don't forget that tomorrow, April 18th, Target will be giving away 1.5 million Reusable Totes with purchase to celebrate Earth Week. 

Thanks Shannon!

Pay it Forward with KFC!

I just received this email from KFC and I absolutely had to pass it on.

Right now all of us can help try to make the largest single donation to end breast cancer forever.

KFC is joining the fight against breast cancer with a national "Buckets for the Cure" campaign, aimed at educating more women and men about breast health, generating support for the cause and attempting to make the single largest donation in the history of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Through May 23rd, KFC will be dedicating special pink buckets to Komen for the Cure, with KFC restaurant operators having donated 50 cents for each pink bucket purchased by the operator before May 9th.

KFC fans and supporters can find out more about the program by visiting At the site, you can read stories about people whose lives have been affected by the disease, upload your own story and even make a donation to support breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs.

Check out this You Tube video showing a Louisville KFC restaurant being painted pink. And the Colonel's suit has been changed temporarily from white to pink, that's how committed KFC is to this very worthwhile and urgent cause.

Thanks Margie!
