See How Others Shopped This Week!

I did not have any great trips this week since I wore out Harris Teeter during Super Doubles last week!  Here are two sites I like to visit on Friday and Saturday to see if I missed any amazing deals.

You also can learn a lot from seeing how others shop.  For Harris Teeter and Publix, you still have until next Tuesday to do the same deals as those who post.  Just make sure to see when they shopped as some people will post how they did at the end of the last shopping week instead of the current week.

How to Activate Java to Get Your Coupons to Print

I learned something new today.  It has always been hit or miss as to whether my coupons that use Java would actually print.  I have reinstalled Java so many times I have lost count.  Here is a bit of info that I had never noticed before, but when I did this both problem coupons printed!  Check it out!

Always activate Java for a site

If you have a trusted site that uses Java and you need to use that site often, you can make Java work normally on just that website.
  1. Click the red plugin icon in the address bar and a message window will open.
  2. At the bottom of the message window, click the Activate All Plugins dropdown menu and choose Always activate plugins for this site.
Now, whenever you visit this site, the plugin will automatically run and you won't get the "Click to activate" message.

Week Long Super Doubles Begins at Harris Teeter Tomorrow!

I stopped by the Harris Teeter near my kids' school today since my son missed the bus and I had to drive him to school today.  One of my favorite cashiers who also had a son in the same Cub Scout troop as mine told me that starting tomorrow Harris Teeter would have Super Doubles for the week in the Nashville area.  Very cool!  Get your coupons ready!  Remember that you can only use 20 coupons a day and only three like kind of manufacturer coupons and two like kind of printable coupons.
