Got IT Now Where Do I Put IT??

I get asked this question alot when purchasing items and when teaching classes. Where do you put it all at??  Of course I donate but I do have a stockpile for my family.
Here are a few places to store items:

  1. Under the bed - Bins that slide under your bed are perfect for soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, tooth brushes, and other hygiene items. You can also store can foods and cereals there. I used to store chex mix under my bed lol
  2. Under an unused bathroom sink. Chances are, if the bathroom is not used there are things under the sink that aren’t either.
  3. Top racks of children’s closets. In my daughter’s room she too has a walk in closet and I have shelves in there for storing cleaning supplies. Of course she is 13 and knows not to touch it now.
  4. Turn spare rooms you never use in to stockpile rooms. I knew a lady who turned one of extra bath rooms into a storage room, even put shelves in the bath tub.
  5. Turn a corner of your basement in to stockpile corner. You can buy shelves for reasonable prices at Home Depot, Walmart, and Target. I have a big walk in closet/kitchen in our basement, we have cabinets in there just like in a kitchen. So I am able to store lots in things in there!

Wonder If It’s For Real??

Be advised!  NEVER share your internet printables unless it is someone you trust.  Someone else could copy your coupons and use them.  All bricks printables can be linked back to the source. Which simply means they will look at you as the one who copied the coupons not the person you sent them too!!
While most printable coupons are perfectly legitimate, If you ever have doubt about a printable you can always verfy at CentsOff.com and VeriFi. 

 Be wary of any insert coupons that appear to be photocopied or printable coupons that have the same verification code at the top right.


HUGE List of Companies To Email

If you are wondering how to get all those manufacturers coupons home mailed to you or emailed to you, you have to register on their websites for the list or contact them to be put on their list. Here is an amazing list that Mr.C and some others over at WUC has put together.
Remember most of the time they will send you high dollar coupons too.
Another thought to keep in mind even if you tried their product and were not please with the product let them know that too. See they may be like the Mother company to one product but have other products put out by let’s say their children’s company lol so sometimes they will send you coupons from others for you to try.

Tips When Emailing/Writing Companies For Coupons!!

P and G Product Tips – Don’t select the coupons/samples option select general or Other this will ensure your request goes to a human and not get back to a general ‘we don’t sent coupons email.
