No Sunday Coupons

I am happy that several fellow bloggers have posted about there being no Sunday coupons in the paper this week! It is honestly the only reason I buy the Sunday paper...I typically read the paper either online or borrow a friends. I would have totally forgot there wouldn't be coupons due to the Labor Day Holiday! Thanks for reminding me! So I am passing the message onto you, my readers: NO COUPONS in the 9/6 newspaper!


Thank you to those of you who entered the $10 Stop & Shop gift card giveaway hosted by MyBlogSpark & General Mills! I used the random number generator over at to select the winner... and the winner is...
