      Thanks for posting the starter deals for the drug store game. I have been wanting to give this a shot again. I am pringing out your list.
      I have been a member of hcw and afc for several yrs. but I have not got the hang of the drug store game- I have tried it about a yr. ago at our cvs and walgreens and they were always out of everything. I just got fustrated with it and quit. Now I am going to give it another shot.

      I did the videos and I printed out the $5/$20.

      I got this sunday's paper and I have a few others and I ordered some cpn today, Is there a way of knowing ahead of time if you need to order any extra cpns?

      sorry for asking so many questions but I want to get it right this time.

      Thanks

      Happy Easter

      @Busy Mom – The best place for advance coupon match ups is AFC and HCW, because they seem to have a few posters who are kind enough to give a heads up. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be on a regular basis. The best way to go about it may simply be to review the upcoming weekly ads, and check to see if there are coupons available for the items you really want. I also recommend taking it slow, or at least not expecting yourself to spend pennies per transaction right off the bat. If you're spending less than you were before, then it's all good :) Hope that helps, and good luck!
