Just wanted to see how many of you are participating in the Dollar Tank Club? Now, don’t get me wrong the idea of Free Gas is wonderful but how much are you spending at the grocery store to get it? The way The Dollar Tank Club was explained to me is that you have to earn the same amount of Fuel Perks as gas. For example, if gas is $3.09 then you have to have at least $3.00 in Fuel Perks.
One reader asked us if we all noticed that Fuel Perk itmes seemed to be overpriced. Even with coupons, the price of Fuel Perks items are uncomparable to other grocery stores.
Personally, I understand this way of thinking I typically will not go for Fuel Perk items just for the gas perk; I shop with coupons so I try to get the best deal possible. I tend to look at the items with coupons perferably the ones that have multiple coupons attatched to them (manufacture, e-coupons, & competitor coupons).
So what are you thoughts on The Dollar Tank Club? is it worth it? How many Fuel Perks have you accumulated thus far?
Is your Bi-LO shopping trips ever difficult due to your kids behavior?
Today was so aweful that I have to share it with your guys.
So I’ m heading to Bi-LO already dreading my shopping trip because my two older children have been bickering all day about everything. Ofcourse, I have all three kids in tow. I start off by visiting the bakery for their free cookie (huge mistake) and then I begin my shopping.
Long story short,I’m trying to concentrate on what the cashier is doing so my tranaction will come out right , my two older kids are still at it and my youngest son helps himself to a king size snickers, which he starts to consume with the wrapper.
Counting to ten at this point. Can we say ” W..o..o..s..a..h”!
Days like this all I want is to send my kids to bed early and have a tall glass of an alcoholic beverage (any would do) or lots of donuts! Either one and I’ll be happy. LOL
**From now on I am correcting my mistake, my two older kids will not get their cookie untill I’m ready to walk out the grocery store, if their actions are rewarded.
So what is the secret? What are your thoughts? How do you keep your sanity and shop with kids?
So we have discussed how to get coupons and what are the best ways to organize them. Now, let’s talk about probably the most important part of couponing…..GETTING A FRIEND!
Yep, I said it. You need to get out of your comfort zone and start talking to other couponers. You’ll be surprised just how much you may have in common with someone else that is couponing. Get on sites such as: IHeartB-LO or Smart Shopping Ladies, you’ll get information about deals that you may or may not know and from another perspective.
Early on in my couponing adventure, I was a member of a coupon forum where I started making friends online. Later, as I became more comfortable in this couponing game, I was talking to everyone that had a coupon in their hands; just to see what they knew and where they went to get their information. Till this very day, I still have some of the same friends. Before I moved to Lexington, SC I was fortunate to be on the local news several times where I used to live (WYFF channel 4). As a result of this opportunity I was able to meet even more like minded people.
The whole reason of telling you a little about my couponing experience is to reiterate how important “friends” are. Fast Forward to today I have at least 4 people on speed dial that I talk to weekly about deals that we are excited about and the coupons that we would use. Even now, as I post deals on iheartbi-lo some of the same names pop up under ”comments” and I consider them to be friends. I love talking to people that share the same common goal as I….Saving money using coupons!

Hey guys just wanted you to meet the team at “I Heart Bi-LO”. If you thought I was the only one doing all the work…then I’m totally flattered!, but I’m not.
*My name is Serena Coleman and I’m owner/operator of Iheartbi-lo. I love finding great deals at Bi-LO but like I’ve mentioned before I’m completely swamped at times with “Life” and of course the full time job of being a “Mom”.
*My friend, Leslie Shaip who I’ve know for years, helps me with the matchups for the Bi-LO ads. We actually have never met in person before because she lives in NC, but she knows her stuff and enjoys saving money.
*Toya Stanitzek is a mom and a fellow extreme couponer who loves getting items free or cheap. She is very good at finding deals and matching competitor coupons to them to ensure All couponers can get the best deal possible. She too, is addicted to this “Couponing Game”.
