Couponing for Charity 3/13-19

It's Spring Break in East TN for every school I know. Shopping with kids (especially all three of mine) can be stressful. So do what you can and don't worry about the rest.

For all the match-ups, go to Southern Savers.

This is the week to stock up on pasta. With the mega sale (buy 10 qualifying items, save $5), you can get all types of Ronzoni pasta for free. You can use printables (up to 2 per kind) and from the paper. You can also get Annie's organic mac n cheese for $.49 a box--a great price. I'll be stocking up again. You can also get 4 free Pure protein bars with 2 B1G1 printables and 2 $1 printables. All these are excellent to donate.
