A coupon in my bread & a GIVEAWAY


This morning, in my usual frantic dash around the house to secure the items I would need for my day at work, I reached in my bread box and grabbed the loaf of bread. I proceeded to pluck 2 slices from the bag and just as I was dropping them down in a ziploc bag, something catches my eye. A coupon... for sandwich meat...between my slices of bread. Now, I'm quite familiar with promotional packaging, and as a coupon user, I always check the boxes of products, to see if a coupon was printed inside. This was however new to me. The coupon wasn't just tucked into the packaging, it was "smack dab" in the middle of my loaf of bread. So if any of you have recently picked up some of Sara Lee's Soft & Smooth Whole Grain White bread... don't be suprised if the next time you grab a slice you get a little something extra!


Now onto the part you're here for... the GIVEAWAY... I am going to be giving away a 2 Week Free Pass to Curves for you & a friend. Pretty nifty huh? I'm not sure how it relates to coupons & bread, but it's my world, you're just visiting :)

And all I get in my bread is mold! I am new to couponing so this may not be too weird buuuuuut....I am not much of a morning person so Monday I was stumbling around trying to get ready for work. I went to put my shoes on and felt something crunchy in the toe of my sneaker. Yep there was a coupon! I had taken off my shoes while cutting coupons from the Sunday paper and one had fallen in my shoe!

Hi! I do not have a great story of where I found the coupon...but it is interesting none the less. I have two children 3 months apart (adopted). My daughter just turned 2, my son in December...anyway we go through the diapers. I had to laugh the other day because in a package of my Luvs I found 2 coupons for Pampers! I used them because the coupons made the Pampers cheaper than the Luvs!!!

Just had to share that! I am going to post about your give away on my blog:

The oddest place I have found twice while shopping at Meijer I have found a STACK of coupons left on the cases of pop. What luck they were always good ones I could use

The oddest place I ever found a coupon was my 5 year olds jean pocket. Apparently, the coupon machine found at stores was irresistable. She must have plucked 20 from various machines. Needless to say , several have been used.

Well I haven't really found a coupon in a odd place other than what some of the others have said basically in a package product or on a store shelf. What a great giveaway I have been wanting to try curves but haven't this would be the push I need.

The craziest place I found a coupon was in the dog food bag. You are pouring out dog food for your pet and it drops in his bowl so you frantically try to fish it out of there before he eats it!!!
