For all the new Penny Pinchers, each week I will focus on coupon match ups using the coupons available that week in the Watertown Daily Times. The reason I do this is that when I first started following the sites it was difficult to follow their coupon match-ups as I had just begun and didn’t have the past six weeks of coupons at hand.
Abbreviations: SS (SmartSource coupon insert) & RP (Red Plum coupon insert)
Oreo’s 2/ $5: Buy 2 @ $5 – $1 off 2 SS coupon = 2/$ 4.00 or $ 2.00 each

Lots of Price Chopper store coupons in this week’s ad! Remember the ad you get in the paper will sometimes have coupons that the ads in the store won’t have! Also there is a special page of coupons in tomorrow’s paper including a coupon for Buy 1 Pantene shampoo or conditioner, get another FREE! Price Chopper is having a sale on Pantene 3/$10…if you have 3 of these coupons that you means you could get 6 bottles of Pantene shampoo and/or conditioner for $ 10.00 or $ 1.67 each! This is where asking family & friends who don’t coupon for their coupons out of their Sunday paper comes in handy!!
Also if you shop Price Chopper, don’t forget to hit the iSave machine as you first enter the store! Use your AdvantEdge card to score extra coupons, many times I get coupons good off of store brand goods!
I am really excited about the sales this week!! Here are the Price Chopper coupon matchups with the SmartSource (SS) coupon insert that will be in this Sunday’s edition of the Watertown Daily Times!!

If you don’t subscribe to the Watertown Daily Times already, wake up on Sunday morning and head out to buy the Sunday edition of the paper. Not only do you get all the local and national news, but you also get the coupon inserts and the sales ads.
As I mentioned before, when I first started couponing I found it very frustrating that I would look at coupon matchups and they would contain deals using coupons from several weeks before. Just getting into couponing, I didn’t have those coupons available to me so I will offer coupon matchups weekly for Price Chopper using just the coupons available in that week’s paper. That way, whether you are a beginner or a pro, you can all take advantage of the deals I post.
This week is not the greatest for deals but there are several making it worth the trip:

When I first started couponing, I of course started following couponing sites. The most frustrating thing for me was when they did the coupon matchups they would say use such and such coupon from four weeks ago to get this great deal. When you are just starting out, you don’t have the coupons from four weeks ago. Each week I will do the matchups for that week’s sales for Price Chopper with that week’s coupons to help out those just beginning.
