Sad day for Atlanta couponers: The end of Kroger double coupons

Sad day for Atlanta couponers: The end of Kroger double coupons

ATLANTA -- The wave of couponers' cries heard in the Midwest and Texas has finally hit the Southeast!

For years, we have enjoyed the everyday doubling of coupons $0.50 and less. We got FREE items because of this great policy and it made handling an almost impossible budget easier for us couponers and savvy shoppers.

While I am not saying that this will hurt us (I will be posting some other things Kroger is doing), it does have me wondering -- in this competitive Atlanta market, where we use more coupons per capita then ANYWHERE in the US -- how will this fare? Will Publix jump on the bandwagon?

The end of double coupons becomes effective September 21, 2013. For this couponer, I will be having to double check my shopping list with this new rule. It's not fun, but a lot of new things are coming from Kroger, and I think this is why the program of double couponing is ending.

An Overview of Do-It-Yourself Pest Control

An Overview of Do-It-Yourself Pest Control

Your homes are a place of safety and comfort for you, your family, and friends. That is where the baby crawls, the kids play, where meals are prepared, and where you sleep at night. Your home should be just that, YOURS. More often than desired, your homes become a haven to unwanted guests. They could come as cockroaches, ants, bed bugs, fleas, spiders, termites, mice, or even rats. Really, there are more pests with a possibility of invading your homes than can even be imagined. This is why home pest control is a necessity. While many people think that they need to hire an expensive pest control company, the truth is that they can do their own pest control just as effectively and save a lot of money.
