Circular savings tip
Be sure to pull the grocery coupon circulars out of last Sunday’s AJC because there is a Procter & Gamble coupon circular with over $82 in coupons as well as a SmartSource and RedPlum circular. As the holidays approach we can expect to get more coupons in the Sunday AJC circulars, so be sure to save them each week. Make it easy to save by using this column and the CouponMom.com website to find the best deals that tell you which coupons to use.
