We wish you a pleasant night & good morning


RIP “Aints”

Once upon a time the New Orleans Saints were so bad that they were nicknamed “The Aints”. As in, ain’t ever gonna win a game.

Their fans are the ones who invented the now cliched paper grocery bag over the head.

Today they are world champs. Wow. I’m still stunned. Congrats.

I’m Sick

Sorry for the lack of posts and deals the last few days. I’m not feeling very good. I’m sick, again.

The good news is I should be better soon and we are almost out of grocerys. Plenty of good savings blogs coming in the next few days. Thank you for understanding.

Happy Halloween


Happy Halloween from ROC Coupons. Sorry, no deals yesterday or today. Halloween is a big deal around here and didn’t have the time to go deal hunting. Two years ago today my family packed our bags and moved to the burbs. It has been the most wonderful experience ever. We love living here so much. We have great neighbors and our son has made great friends. Everyone on the block hangs out and partys on Halloween night and I’m looking so forward to that tonight. The above pic is one of my favorites. It’s from our first night in our new house in 2007 back when our boy was just 15 months old. Have a happy and safe holiday everyone and the ROC Coupons deals will return on Sunday. Don’t forget to set your clocks to ‘fall back’ before bed.

Freedom Isn’t Free

This blog is dedicated to getting things on the cheap or getting things for free. One thing that doesn’t come cheap and isn’t free is the freedom we enjoy every day here in America. To the military past and present we say thank you. And to those who lost loved ones on 9/11 I will honor their memory every year until the day the Lord takes me away. Never forgot.
