New month, new printable coupons

The beginning of a new month means that many of the printable coupon websites offer new coupons or reset the coupons that they offered previously.  Many coupons will have a predetermined limit set by the advertiser so once that number is reached, the coupon disappears.

Some of my favorites from Coupons.com

There are also several other great places to get printable coupons:

If you buy General Mills products, besides the coupon sources above which often feature GM coupons, try the following to Maximize your coupon printing:

I remember when… Sticker Shock!

(Sigh)  I am officially “that” age.  That age when a person starts sounding like the old people they remember from their childhood (who really weren’t that old, after all).  My parents would talk about gasoline for $.19 a gallon.  Now I realize I’ve become my parents!  I guess that just shows my… MATURITY.

When it comes to shopping, I’ve always had a knack for remembering the prices of many items at many stores.  At least, I remember what the prices used to be.  So let’s take a trip in Professor Peabody’s Wayback Machine.

For instance, I remember…

  • New Market, the long-gone grocery store on Hansen and Oneida Street, would frequently have pork tenderloin on sale for $.99 lb.
  • 12-packs of brand name soda went on sale for $.99.  Just a few years ago, $1.99 was a good deal.  Now a “good” deal on name brand soda is $2.50 – $3.00 a 12-pack
  • Dolly Madison bakery thrift stores had $.29 bread.
  • The regular price for store brand cereal was $.99 for the jumbo box.
  • During baking season, you could get brand-name box cake mix for $.39 before coupons.
  • A bag of holiday candy like Hershey’s Kisses or M&Ms was $1.50 before coupons and sales.
  • Coupon expiration dates were six months after they appeared in the paper, not three weeks!
  • Coupons in the paper almost always coincided with a sale that week.  Now you may have to wait a few weeks to find the sale.
  • There were actually a lot of coupons in the paper and not ads for Bradford Exchange, Blair and Michigan Bulb in our inserts.

What do you remember?  (And please, if you don’t know who Professor Peabody and his pet boy Sherman are, I don’t want to hear about it. I’m feeling old enough as it is!)
