I think that A&P/Walbaums internet coupon policy is store wide. I tried to use an internet printable a few months ago and they wouldn't let me. If only they would, I could get better deals on some things than I would at Shop Rite. Great haul though....and yes, you are stocked on butter lol.

One question for you, where do you find the time to do all that you do on your blog and searching out the deals? With work and everything, I would think you would be too busy to hound as much as you do. Being and SAHM and a student, I should have as much time as you do to hound but I definitely don't. What's the secret? Inquiring minds want to know :o)

The whole "not accepting internet coupons" thing is such a pain! do I find the time to do all this? I honestly don't know sometimes! lol I get email updates from HCW every day, so I don't have to spend a lot of time looking around there - it comes to me! I also get email updates from the blogs I read so I don't have to go to those sites either. If I could figure out how, I'd put a link on my blog so people could get email updates too - haven't figured that out yet. I also hound whenever I get a chance - before work, on my lunch hour and after work. Since I have my lists planned out ahead of time, I can quickly run in a store, get what I need and get out. On my lunch today, I was able to run to CVS and ShopRite - in and out baby! When I get home from work, I usually update my blog, cut out any coupons I may need and get myself organized for the next day. Its really a bit overwhelming lately, and I figure that in months to come when my stockpile is built up even more, I won't need to do as much shopping and I can breath a little. Right now, its still too much fun!
