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.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

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!
