Super Savings Saturday & Sunday

Let's talk stacking! Some stores (Lowes Foods, Target, Walgreens, CVS to name a few) will allow you to pair a store coupon with a manufacturer's coupon. This is called "stacking" and can create great savings! I get real excited when Lowes Foods issues new store coupons. The coupons are usually valid for four weeks and cover both store brand items as well as name brand items that typically have manufacturer coupons available. For instance, one of the Lowes store coupons is for Ziploc storage or freezer bags 10-20ct at $1.39 each. When you "stack" the store coupon with the .75/1 any Ziploc bag with Easy Zipper coupon from today's Smartsource insert (which doubles at Lowes), you've got FREE ziploc bags!
