Remember as we load up on picnic and camping essentials this Memorial Day weekend also to keep in mind the armed forces who continually serve our country and those who gave their lives while serving our country.

Over the years, I have found that couponers are very charitable with providing food items as donations. I am challenging couponers to assist our local veterans in need. This week is a perfect time to go through your pantry or stockpile and offer your extra food items as donations. Please donate to the Veterans Affairs Office food pantry located at Blount County Courthouse in Maryville.

Working coupon deals can involve several different transactions when checking out. Using one type of transaction at CVS at times can seem a little complicated. The Wet N Wild promotion to spend $10 and get $5 Extra Buck is quite simple. Wet N Wild Icon Blush is $2.99. Buy three and one lipstick $1.49, and your total before coupons $10.46. Then use coupons from Smart Source 05-20. Use three $1 coupons and one 50 cent coupon and your final price is $6.96. Then receive a $5 Extra Buck store money. Note: You can roll this deal for a total of three times. For the second and third transaction, you can use the $5 extra buck from the previous transaction.

Remember, as you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money saving plan. This is the 21st week of the year. Place $21 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $231 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
