Print or Not to Print...That is the Question (Guest Post)


This is a Guest Post from Jodi at MySLCMommy about why you should print coupons! You see people saying not to and she tells you why she feels you should.  You can find her on Facebook here--she also has some fun Giveaways you can enter!
So many people think printing coupons is a waste of time, ink, and paper. What do you think? Here is a run down of what I think (and why!)
1.) Printing coupons allows you to CHOOSE your savings! You can print JUST what you need!
2.) Companys are putting high dollar or B1G1 FREE coupons out there for print!
3.) Almost every company has a FB page or a website that they load with coupons!
4.) Most coupons that you get from the paper are NOT free (you have to buy the paper) and you are limited to how many you buy! I know people who have three computers, so they can print most coupons up to 6 times!
5.) You are basically printing MONEY! I see coupons as MONEY!
6.) You can print more then just GROCERY coupons.  Don't forget about Retail Restaurant coupons!
*If you have an inkjet printer, I suggest you print in grey scale (to save on ink) and I suggest using a laser printer (that's what I personally use) as you can print up to 1000 pages for less then $30! Let us know your thoughts about printing coupons!

I print out coupons I know I will most likely use. I am printing out 100's of dollars worth of coupons per ink cartridge, so it is worth it. I have been getting my printing paper from free or almost free at Staples when they have rebates.

I agree that it is worth printing out the coupons if you have stores that will accept them. Unfortunately for me, our local stores have quit accepting internet coupons. I would suggest checking to be sure the stores you shop still accept coupons printed from the internet.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

LOW Entry Giveaways Ending This Week

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
