Last chance: Enter to win an Attractions coupon book

Bookmark and Share

Here's a quick giveaway to kick off the holiday weekend early: I've got two Attractions coupon books to give away. I'll pick two winners at random and send one to each.

Leave me a comment about your weekend plans (frugal or not) and you'll be entered to win.

These are 2012 books, by the way, but they still have a lot of frugal life left in them. All the coupons in the book are good through Dec. 31.

There are coupons for all sorts of restaurants and ice cream places, including Char Grill, Jersey Mike's, Cold Stone and Rita's.

There are also coupons for retailers like CVS, Walgreens, Dick's Sporting Goods, A.C. Moore and Ace Hardware.

One of my favorite coupons in the book is the CVS prescription coupon for a free $25 gift card. That coupon is a rarity these days because you may use it on a new prescription as well as a transfer. We've also used the BOGO Jersey Mike's and Goodberry's coupons, both of which are pretty rare.

Just a reminder, the Attractions books, which normally sell for $25, are available to N&O subscribers for $12.50 through the N&O ZONE, which is our rewards program for subscribers. But Friday, Aug. 31, is the last day you can order them.

After that, you'll have to wait for the 2013 books, which won't be available until later this year.

This giveaway will close at midnight Monday, Sept. 3. I'll announce the winner on Tuesday.

week-end plans

Headed to ECU to see my son!!

grilling out with some friends

We are going to be grilling out for some of our friends. We are providing pork chops and brats for about 10-12 people. They think we have spent a lot of money, but it only costs about $4 because of centsible shopping (coupons and discounted meat). We'll probably cook something else too, just so we can brag about how cheaply they are eating.

Doing a cleanse! Ugh. :)

Park Fun

We are headed to Pullen Park for some fun!


Canning tomato sauce and raspberries, making green tomato marmalade, baking bread, and (gulp) cleaning the garage.

family weekend

I am looking forward to a special weekend with my sister-in-law from Tampa as well as my brother-in-law from Virginia.  Can't wait to spend time with my niece and nephew.  Families are a blessing and nothing beats bonding with the kin.
