Make sure to check the terms of each offer too. I love that I can use coupons and take advantage of store sales and deals and earn cashback in-store too!
Here is your monthly reminder! A new month means new printable and electronic coupons!
The printable coupon market is slowly coming to an end. Smartsource no longer offers printable coupons, and you may notice that there are fewer coupon inserts in your Sunday newspaper. This is in favor of more offers available on apps. But if you love printable coupons….
- Coupons.com (printable coupons, e-coupons, and a cashback app)
One of my favorite websites is the Sunday Coupon Review. It helps me plot out scenarios in advance and I can email friends to ask for coupons in advance. Remember if clipping coupons isn’t your thing, but saving money is, check out my list of Smartphone apps that can save you the big bucks! New offers are added on the Smartphone Savings Apps all the time!
December means saving on baking ingredients, giftable items, food storage (for all those cookies and leftovers!), and cold/flu OTC meds.

Save $1.50 on any ONE (1) bag of Truvia Sweet Complete® Granulated All-Purpose, Confectioners or Brown Sweetener
Save $0.75 When you buy FOUR (4) Avocados From Mexico
Better late than never, right? I promise I Was not out Black Friday shopping today. I was doing some crafts and taking the kids to the zoo, finished up with dinner with my mom (dad is still in the hospital).

Canadian Friends- You are in luck, there are sampling opportunities for you too! So if you love trying new products, check out Social Nature!
I know the official holiday season doesn’t for about a week, but I wanted to share some of these cute holiday dresses from Dresslily.
I have a bunch of dresses and home decor (tapestries) from Dresslily. They are of decent quality, especially when you factor in the price.
Right now they have a few deals going on:
- All new shoppers receive 15% off their first order.
- When you spend over $79 (which is pretty easy), you can choose FedEx shipping for free.
- While they are size-inclusive (up to a size 5x/24), please be aware that because these dresses are made overseas, their sizing may seem off. Trust their sizing charts and order via their sizing chart, not what size you usually wear in American stores.
Here are a few of my holiday favorites:
DressLily also has cute accessories too. I’ve picked up a couple cute scarves (which I’m sure one or both of the kids will steal). Regardless of what holiday you celebrate this winter, Dreslily has something cute and festive!

Sprouts is hooking us up and helping us stay healthy! Every month on the Sprouts app in the Digital Coupon section, there are between 4-6 free items (they are marked “SAMPLING PROGRAM”).
Quantities are limited on the app, so if you are interested in any of these, I recommend that you add these coupons (by opening the Sprouts app, click on digital coupons, and click on each coupon in the lower corner where the little green circle is) to your app ASAP.
Not all Sprouts locations will have these freebies, so I suggest trying larger Sprouts location in your area.
These are full-sized freebies- not small sample sized products. they are located in the store with the other products of the same type.
Not all accounts will receive all the same products.
This month the following items are available:
- Kevita Beverages
- Brazi Bites
- Milton’s non-GMO Fire Roasted Crackers
- Somona Creamery Cheese Crisp Crackers
- Notmilk Products
