      can you get extra bucks more than one time ?

      • rebecca

        Yes, you will 5 times.

    • Couponcrazee

      Hey!

      Just wanted to let you know, that we were told to put Ivory soap in the shoeboxes because if they are taking a bath in a river or something, it is the only soap that won't sink! So they won't loose it! Just thought I would spread the word, thanks for all you do :)

      • Mama71fl

        funny the things we do not think about

      • Sandra

        Thanks for letting us know this! I never knew that. However, I've worked at the Processing Center in Charlotte before and noticed that the whole box smells like soap – UNLESS the soap is placed inside a plastic bag – like a Ziploc type bag. Thanks for the tip on the soap!

    • Jen S.

      Where is a good place to donate the glucose meters? I live in Myrtle Beach if that makes any difference.

      • Iris Potter

        Your postal carrier might pick them up to be donated to a local food bank.

    • ATay

      can you buy a glucose meter with out a prescription?

      • Michelle

        Yes! The reason you'd want a prescription is for insurance to reimburse you; many insurances won't cover the meter though. You can even buy the strips without a script…but they are VERY expensive without insurance.

        • ATay

          Thank you.

    • Thanks for the list Jenny! My church was giving out “official” Operation Christmas Child boxes on Sunday and now my 4 year old is so excited to start filling them (and decorating them with stickers), she can hardly contain herself.

      If anyone else is planning to do the Operation Christmas Child boxes (or any other charitable giving) this year, leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win one of 3 $15 Starbucks gift cards. Obviously we don't give to charity to win things for ourselves, but it is always fun to get a little something! :-) Just click on my name for the link.

      Does REDPLUM only work on PC's …I have a mac and it keeps asking me to enable cookies??? anyone?

      • steph_rnld

        I have a mac laptop and can't get redplum to work either. My husband is good with computers (I stink at all things computer related) and he can't get it to work wither. We have a desktop PC so I can only print redplum from it.

        • kjmiller

          I have a mac running OS 10.5.8. I can print RP (and most other coupons) from my Safari browser (v 5.0.1). Strangely though, there are a few sites which I need Firefox to access and print. Maddening…

      • Danielle

        My iPad won't allow me to install adobe flash due to a licensing issue with Mac. Does redplum run off adobe? If so, that is your problem. Probably no way around it unless you know someone who can hack a computer.

      • I had that problem with my Mac a while back & I think running all the latest software updates is what finally ended up fixing the problem. Click the apple icon in the top left-hand corner, then pick “software update.” But a word of warning, after I did the update, I couldn't print Target coupons for a couple of weeks until Target updated their software to keep up with Mac. I haven't had any problems with Target coupons since then, so hopefully it was just a fluke. Good luck!

    • Ieuroedgei

      Donations are wonderful if you bought the items and don't need them…not because you just can. Please don't clear out shelves so that people who are not that unfortunate but still nickel and diming can get the products as well. Last week I taught an old lady who had a cough how to use the vicks coupons and she was so happy since there were only 3-4 bottles left. It takes 1 clever person to clean out 1 store that regular shoppers depend on since they have no transportation. Please be considerate and don't get too greedy.

      • Penny

        AMEN!!

    • Dollface5304

      I know if there is a b1g1 sale and you use a b1g1 coupon, both items are free. How does this work if the sale is b1g1 50% off and you have a b1g1 coupon? Someone please explain in detail. Thank you!

    • Evangeline

      I did pretty good this morning despite the cashier's obvious disdain for my stack of coupons. I did find that the Nature Valley was not in the promo, and the confusing signage at my Peachtree City, GA Kroger was confusing. The selection of cereals was much less than I was expecting but ehhh cereal that's under $1, can't really complain. Oh and the Mahatma Rice was tagged 10/$10 but rang up $1.09 ea…I'm debating if I really should go get my .99cents back for my 11 bags. I was so annoyed at her already and felt bad for holding up the line I didn't notice she missed 4 of my coupons. But tomorrow is another coupon day so I'm not gonna let it get to me. I spent $30 on over $100 worth of stuff. Had to buy the baby replacement pacifiers & I couldn't find any Q's. happy Couponing everyone :)

      • Penny

        If you take your grocery receipt and coupons, Kroger will give you the money back. My Kroger (Dallas, GA) I go to is so good about that. They don't even look at my receipt. Now, two other Krogers who are much closer to my home and work will treat it as though I'm robbing them or breaking Homeland Security clearance. All has to do with who is the manager.

    • Andrea

      I LOVE this!! I am collecting items for Operation Christmas Child, a care package for a soilder my team at work adopted as well as items for a nursing home that my church has adopted. This makes it so much easier to help me come up with ideas for items or find what I need on sale. Thank you Jenny!
