Pssst... - General Mills is home to some of our favorite foods -- Yoplait Light, Fiber One, Progresso Light, etc. Now you can become a member of the company's consumer network and hear the latest news, snag coupons and samples (and share 'em with your friends), and receive email alerts that'll keep you in the know.

First Taste - Sign up and be the first to know about new foods from the folks at Kraft (makers of Nabisco 100 Calorie Packs, Crystal Light, Jell-O, Cool Whip Free, and so much more!). Share your opinions, receive special offers, take surveys, answer polls, and ask your burning product-based Qs. You could even be featured in their Member Spotlight section. Fancy!BTW, here's some more cool food news! Amazon is running an INSANE special where you can save lots of money on thousands of grocery products. Click here and use promo code Q4DEAL25 to save $25 when you spend $75 or more, unti l December 31st. Click for all the details. Sign up at for monthly coupons.

One thing I am learning about using coupons is you have to watch the clerk when they are ringing you up. Make sure that the sale prices are showing up during check-out, don't wait until you've left the store to discover an error, and if you have a bunch of coupons hand only a few at a time to the clerk to make sure you get credit for all of them. I lost at least $10.00 this week alone because of these two things. Another thing when using your reusable bags, especially at WalMart place them on the round bagger for the clerk so they can fill them for you. Check with your grocery stores and see if they are giving you credit for using your own bags, Albertson's and Brookshire's now gives you $.05 for each bag you use.
