Money for shipping costs. Please, please! They need to raise at least $15,000 to ship the stockings and holiday cards!
You can print this list to share with others or take shopping with you by clicking the link at the top of the article! You are welcome to print as many copies as you like so please pass them on to others who are interested in supporting our troops.
Please do not send any more cans of vegetables or outdated food items. They cost a lot to throw away. We do NOT need any more books right now. Please consider sending underwear or DVDs instead.
****Monetary donations are needed to help ship the care packages. This is always the biggest need by far. Shipping costs have increased and they really need to be able to get the packages out every week. They ship Wednesday and Saturday and are currently sending 50 to 200 boxes every week. The troops are counting on us.
If you have a church group or scout troop or even a sewing club that could help us out with some 12" to 15" stockings it would be a huge blessing. They can be home-made, sewn from felt or purchased. We have had to buy some extras the last couple years and the Dollar Tree stores usually have a great selection for only $1 each. We currently have a couple hundred in stock thanks to the Lynn family and several other donors who have drooped off bags of them at our Leesport packing location. We appreciate all of you who have remembered that we have to start early to make sure the stockings get there in plenty of time. Registered users can view some of the photos of those who received stockings from us last year in the Media Gallery!
Our other BIG need for this campaign will be the money to ship the stockings. The economic situation has hit us hard the last few months. I know that times are tough and that when you are struggling to put gas in your car and food on the table that one of the items that is not on your mind is giving money away. All I can ask is if you can help us with $5.00 or a package of snacks or socks or other items from the list to put in the stockings you do so. We truly appreciate any help at all and no donation is too big or too small.
We will be posting more details on Stockings for Soldiers and some extra packing dates and times over the next few weeks. We hope to see lots of our old friends during the holday season!
Thanks for your continued support for Keystone Soldiers and for our troops!

Other then picking up my newspapers at Dollar Tree, I have done nothing coupon related this week, even ran through ACME tonight for a quick dinner without coupons.
So what I am going to toss out here is a quick run down of what I see as some quick, current couponer 'to do' items.
First, clean out your coupon organizer. A TON of coupons expired 9/31 through 10/5. And unless you are one of those lucky people who lives in an area that accepts expired coupons, it is time to move on. There are some military programs that accept these coupons, so you may want to consider contacting them. (Coupons can be used on overseas military bases 6 months past the expiration date).
Many of the printable coupon sites reset on the first of the month. So now is the time to check them out. You may be able to print one or two more copies of a coupon that you LOVED, and you may find some new coupons too!
Sites to Check
Blue Bunny Ice Cream
Baking season (Thanksgiving through Christmas) is rapidly approaching. Now is a great time to sort through your baking items, weed out items that are expired, and make a checklist of items that you need for the holidays. While sales have changed over the years, this is the season for baking, and the stores know it too, so I will be watching for baking items to replenish my pantry.
While we morn the loss of the money making Glade Gel Warmer deal that seemed to appear everywhere (Acme, Giant, Some KMart, Jewel, etc etc etc) Keep your glade gel warmer REFILL coupons handy. I got a text message from my sister today that her Giant PA store shelf shows a $2 OYNO Catalina when you buy 2, and this deal goes into November. I don't think these are a money maker (or even a freebie) YET, but that is plenty of time for a sale to come in.
Just one more thing! While chatting with my friend Lori, over the weekend she mentioned that she is very good about clipping her coupons, and putting them in her little organizer bag, but she is very BAD about actually taking them to the store. She pretty much talked herself through the issue and decided to move her coupon storage with her grocery shopping list. Now Lori is by no means a power coupon shopper, but is doing her best to be a Savvy Shopper. So take a moment and review your grocery store shopping strategy. What are you falling short on? Taking the reusable bags to the store? (I now have my kids run them out to the car as soon as they are empty) Taking your coupons? Taking your list? Whatever it is, take a moment to see what you can do to possibly cut down on / eliminate that problem. You just may save your self some $$ and some sanity at the same time!

But my oldest dd managed to take up about 6 hours of my evening with her school project, due Friday, that she had been insisting she was working on, on her own (yeah, right!)
And I am working in the morning, and then off to Crop for a Cure - WOOT! So updates will be delayed.
Have a great weekend!Isn't this cute? Pretty much suits the coupon clipping scrapbook addict that I am. If interested you can find it HERE

Admittedly, I haven't been in Genuardi's for awhile. But top on hubbies Christmas list was the Iron Man DVD, and though the ad lacks details, if you spend $40 on selected items you get the DVD for free.
Out of Pocket Cost $27.82 and I received a coupon for Free Iron Man DVD, which I promptly redeemed.
Savings at Genuardis $39,46
So today I called the local stores, and was again told no. I decided to go ahead and call corporate. After a lenghty hold I was told that all stores should be honoring the deal and that they would email my store manager.
Well the manager just called me back, and she said they WILL honor the double coupons Today 10/1/08 and Tomorrow 10/2/08.
So call your store and ask for a manager, if that doesn't work, call corporate.
BTW theses are 'super' doubles a $2 coupon is worth $4! ! ! Internet printables are not accepted. Maximum of 4 like coupons, total coupons, per customer, per day 75.
