Tips from the Coupon Queen

High cost of specialized fashion

April 16, 2014
Last week, a reader asked why larger-sized clothing costs a few dollars more than standard sizes.

Couponing pays, but so does strategic and smart shopping

March 26, 2014
We couponers are a passionate bunch of money-saving enthusiasts, and while most of my columns discuss couponing in one form or another, you might be surprised by how many readers don’t shop with coupons. I’ve been receiving a lot of email lately from non-couponers who enjoy reading about saving money. Saving on the things we buy appeals to everyone, whether you’re an avid couponer or someone who simply wants the best price possible with minimal work to get it.  (More)
Reader spots more product shrinkage

March 19, 2014
The topic of product “shrink” – when manufacturers reduce the size of a product while keeping the selling price the same – continues to be a hot one. I’m irked by this trend, but I had no idea how incensed my readers had become with smaller sizes. You guys have been busy reading packages, comparing labels, ounces and volume. And you should – it’s your money, and you should make informed purchases.  (More)

Readers respond to non-coupon user

February 19, 2014
In a recent column, I featured an email from a reader named Brian, who stated that he never used coupons because he “felt cheap” when using them. This column generated a lot of email from coupon fans – and why wouldn’t it? If you’re reading this column, it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to infer that you’re interested in saving some money.  (More)

How Article Search Works

The Article search engine looks for an exact match on any word(s) in the headline or the article body.

You can choose to search only articles in a specific category (e.g., Business) or All News & Blogs.

For example, if you type in the word Floresville, the search results will include Floresville City Council Agenda, Floresville City Council Special Meeting, and any other articles that have the word Floresville in either the headline or the article body.

If you search for multiple words, let’s say the words Floresville and 775, the search results will list any articles that include both Floresville AND 775 somewhere in the headline or the article body.
