My Publix is implementing new coupon policies that is making it more difficult to use coupons. =( They are now accepting only 1 $/$$ coupon (ex. $5/$25 Rite Aid) no matter how much your total is. I guess this means I will have to take two smaller grocery trips each week, rather than one large one (it's a good thing I can walk there). The manager who was bagging for my cashier the other day was very strict on the coupons. I was kinda annoyed because we should have gotten another $5 off but the manager wouldn't let us use both of our Family Dollar coupons even though we spent over $50.

Coupon Database

I was preparing my shopping list for BJ's yesterday and was trying to find manufacturer coupons to match my BJ's coupons (BJs allows you to stack store and manufacturer coupons on the same item), and stumbled across an excellent resource on a fellow blogger's site. Kristin from Couponing to disney has a complete database with all (or atleast most) of the current coupons out there. All you have to do is type in the item you are looking for and wallah, there are all the coupons available for that item, how much they are worth and where you can find them. I am so excited. No more wading through over 50 different coupon inserts and surfing the net for a random coupon.
