For those of you who have emailed me and said you can't do this because you have no double coupons stores, that is untrue. I did all of this with no double coupons. :) I did this with rebates, winetags, interprintable coupons and regular coupons! :)

Well I can't do it because there are no wine tags in my state! Hee hee...but no jealousy, that's for sure. I probably get deals you don't too. You put in the hard work and DESERVE to reap the rewards!

Jan, I don't know what state you are in, but you are right, some states do not allow Wine Tags. Each state is different. Your also right when you say that you get deals I probably don't get. Many sales, and stores, are regional. The point I was making is that with time and some patient learning, you can be frugal and a great couponer. :) :) :) Thanks for the comment!!
