Weekend Coupon Preview



Well, it's another exciting weekend to buy the paper. We are expecting 3 inserts this weekend: a Smart Source, a RedPlum and a Proctor and Gamble insert.

Too many awesome coupons to list here, so head over to the Sunday Coupon Preview to see a full list!  People ask me all the time if it's worth the cost, and I always say "Yes!"  I use a lot of internet printable coupons, but nothing compares to a nice thick insert of coupons from the paper.  I buy at least 2 papers per week, sometimes 4.  A week when we get 3 inserts is especially worth it in my eyes! 

In our area, I recommend the Star Tribune as it carries a higher volume of coupons than local papers. My guess is that today's has the SmartSource, but not all 3 inserts, but it's worth looking if you're out, as today's paper only costs .75 as opposed to $2 tomorrow!

Next week no inserts are scheduled, as it is a holiday weekend.

Fun and Free Around Today!

If you have kiddos or maybe you're just a kid at heart, I've got something for you today...


American Family is hosting a Customer Appreciation and Safety Awareness Day TODAY at their office at 2829 University Drive in Fargo! This event is free and open to anyone!

This sounds like a blast, I'm hoping I can make it over there with my daughter! Games to Go bouncy toys and free food and drinks for everyone. There will be an appearance by Clifford the Big Red Dog, The Moorhead and Fargo Police Departments and the Fargo Fire Department.

Plus, I'm big on this one: free car seat safety checks! Please take advantage of this if you have a little one!

This event is today, Saturday from 11-3 on South University in Fargo.  

Even More Restaurant Coupons!

Wow, this is the weekend to remember for Restaurant Coupons!

Collin over at Hip2Save also got a welcome email after she signed up with yet another coupon for a FREE appetizer with the purchase of any entree.  Wow! Thanks, Hip2Save!

Fun and Free Around Town this Week!

There's so much going on around town this week, and I'm sure that there's more that I'm missing! Here are just a few:

Moorhead RiverArts is tonight at Moorhead's Davy and Memorial Park!
From 5:30-8:30 tonight, there will be free fun events for the kiddos and the rest of us, too! Last time around, there were food vendors, bouncy house games, and a farmer's market as well. Plus, the weather is gorgeous!


This week is the Grand Opening of
EcoChic Boutique at 4955 17th Ave S in Fargo!


Click on the image to see a larger version.  There are some pretty fun looking activities going on all week, but tonight there is a Parking Lot party from 4:00 - 7:00 PM! 

Thanks, On The Minds of Moms!



Be sure to check out the Island Park Craft Show this weekend!
Held at Fargo's Island Park downtown Saturday and Sunday from 10-5 PM. Hundreds of craft vendors, plus you gotta love the opportunity to buy a $4 corndog and fried Oreo's! :)




Sunday August 29th is Fargo Moorhead's Street's Alive! Event!
5 miles of streets surrounding downtown, Island Park, Woodlawn Park and Oak Grove Park will be closed off to motorized traffic from Noon-5:00 PM to encourage you to walk, bike, run, stroll or otherwise get out there. I'm actually pretty excited about this, because one of the roads being blocked off is mine. I think it will be neat to watch the action from our house!

For more info and to see other events leading up to Sunday's event,
find Street's Alive on Facebook as well!

Get Together + Coupon Swap for Tuesday Canceled

Hey all, I've canceled the Get Together + Coupon Swap scheduled for tomorrow night, Tuesday the 23rd. There's a combination of reasons, but Moorhead RiverArts was rescheduled for tomorrow, and my family enjoys going. In addition, I didn't have any RSVP's yet. I realize there may have still been a few of you planning to come, so I apologize!

On that note, let's go ahead and get September on the schedule! Saturday, September 25th from 9:00 - 11:00 AM. RSVP here or just email me at fmcheapskate at gmail dot com if you're not on Facebook!

Hope to see you there!

Fun and Free Around Town this Week!

I love bringing you fun and free ideas for ways to get out in the community, whether that's a night out or a family event.  I'd really love to make this post a regular weekly part of FM Cheapskate!  And in order to do so, I need your help! Have an idea for a fun and free (or cheap) event going on around town? I'd love for you to email me at fmcheapskate @ gmail . com (take out the spaces)! When possible, please email me a link for more information as well.  I have received a lot of positive feedback on this posts, so thanks in advance!

This one comes from my awesome husband Nate (who also happens to be a huge Bison fan!)



Tomorrow, Wednesday August 18th from 6:30-8:30 at the FargoDome, NDSU Athletics is hosting Bison Fan Day to kick off the fall NDSU sports season!

The event is free and open to the public. The 2010 football, volleyball and soccer teams will be signing autographs and taking pictures. In addition, there will be inflatable games from Games Galore, posters, prizes, schedules and 500 yard signs available for fans. Kids can also sign up for the Erbert and Gerbert's Junior Bison Club.

Sounds like a great time! Then again, these days anything with a bouncy house toy is a good time. It keeps my 3 year old entertained and expends lots of energy! :)

Even if your family won't eat all 10 cans, I'm sure that most of us have easy access to the 5 coupons you'd need to come out ahead and still leave the store with 10 cans of soup.

Last Minute Get-Together + Coupon Swap Tomorrow Morning!

I'm feeling a little dense, I posted this yesterday over at FM Cheapskate's Facebook page, but forgot to post it here on the blog!

It's a bit last minute, but if you're able to, come on out tomorrow morning to West Acres and meet some fellow coupon friends and swap coupons if you'd like. We'll find a corner of the food court from 9-11 tomorrow morning, and you can feel free to come and go if you need to. On Facebook? Let me know if you plan to attend!

I've really enjoyed these in the past. There's no serious agenda. A few times there's been a dozen people clipping and swapping, and once there were just 3 of us, more interested in chatting and sharing tips than swapping coupons. It is really for you!

Can't make it tomorrow? Pencil in Tuesday, Augst 24th from 6-8. We'll do it again for those of you that prefer weeknights.

See ya tomorrow morning!

Hornbachers General Mills Promo 8/11-8/17

Well, just as suspected, Hornbacher's is running a General Mills promo similar to the General Mills promo at Sunmart this week.

There are several more items included in the Hornbacher's version, but to get the $5 savings, you need to use a Hornbacher's in-ad coupon. There is wording on the coupon that states "no other coupons can be used with it," but several readers have been allowed to use Manufacturer's coupons with the in-ad coupon already. I'd either ask at the front desk before you shop (since it may vary depending on the manager on duty) or just know that it's possible a cashier could refuse your in-ad or Manufacturer's coupon based on the wording.

Save $5 with in-ad Hornbacher's in-ad coupon when you buy 10 participating General Mills products. Prices below reflect the .50 savings per item you'll receive from the $5 coupon.

Sunmart locations in the Fargo Moorhead area double coupons everyday up to $1. Coupons less than .50 double their face value automatically. Coupons with a face value from .50-.99 double to be worth $1, and coupons with a face value higher than $1 are accepted at face value.

Wow, a nice General Mills Promo to go along with all the GM coupons we received this weekend!

Here's the gist: Buy 10 items, get $5 instantly at checkout. Buy 20, get $10 off instantly, buy 30, get $15 instantly. Basically, as long as you buy in quantities of 10, you'll be able to figure an instant discount of .50 per item. Obviously, this make for a better discount on lower priced items, but you can use Manufacturer's coupons with this deal, so many of the prices can be even sweeter than listed in the ad.
