Rochester Couponers Meet-Up Reminder

Just a reminder, the Rochester couponers meet-up with Coupons Deals & More is this coming Saturday at 11:30am in Chili NY. If you would like to attend please RSVP with Ann to receive all the specific information and secret handshake.

A lot of people have contacted me on Twitter and asked what’s going on? What will we do? What can we expect if we show up? Please put together an envelope of coupons you don’t want and then watch this brief video presentation.

Hope to see you there.

Rochester Couponers Meet-Up

The best coupon blog local to Western New York is Coupons Deals & More. If you’re from around here then you need to be reading that blog. It’s my favorite without a doubt. Ann, the author of the blog, had a meet-up of readers recently in Buffalo. Now Rochester readers can get a chance to do the same. Ann and I have set up a time and a place for us coupon nerds to get together and talk about savings and whatnot here in the ROC.

  • Date: Saturday, May 22nd
  • Time: 11:30 am
  • Place: Chili, NY

Email Ann at Coupons Deals & More your RSVP for all the pertinent information.

ROC St Pattys Parade 2010

My family attended the Rochester St Patty’s Day parade today. I’m an Italian and don’t get all the fuss, to be honest. But my wife & son are Irish so off we went in the cold and the rain to watch drunk people walk. Here’s some pics.

The Wegmans Impulse Buy

I dare even the most seasoned professional coupon shopper to go into a Wegmans and NOT make an expensive impulse buy of an item you previously never even knew existed. Go on, I double dog dare you.

Check out what I felt the need to purchase today. Hey c’mon, it’s not every day that you find game meat at the supermarket. I hope it’s good. After all, it ran me $5.29/lb for this:

Anyone have any good recipe ideas?
