This week's syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column is entitled "Rural couponing." Here's an excerpt:
"I live in remote Seneca, Ore. The population is 197 — one hundred ninety-seven. The nearest store is expensive because they are the only one in the area... The stores in my area are not very accepting of printable coupons. I have an inexpensive phone because we don’t have service up here. Even if I could afford one, the stores here are not equipped yet to use smartphone technology for couponing. If you were in my shoes, what would you do?"

Last night, Saturday Night Live had a parody commercial for CVS/pharmacy which advertised gifts you can purchase for that special someone for Valentine's Day. It's a funny gaffe on guys who wait until the last minute to shop for Valentine's Day, then choose gifts that aren't necessarily the most romantic..!
Reader AJfreem put this sweet deal together, which I can't wait to share with you!
Load this new $5-off-$15 All laundry detergent offer from SavingStar to your CVS ExtraCare card.
Then, head over to CVS/pharmacy, where All is part of an ExtraBucks deal this week:
All liquid 28-33 load laundry detergent or 24ct. Mighty Pacs are on sale for $3.99. Buy one and get $1 back in ExtraBucks!
Buy four All ($15.96.) Use two $3-off-2 coupons from the 1/5 RP2. Pay $9.96 and get $1 back in ExtraBucks and $5 back from SavingStar. That's $3.96 for four All, or .99 each!
If you only have one insert from that week, here's a $2-off-2 printable. With one insert coupon and one printable, pay $10.96 and get $1 back in ExtraBucks and $5 back from SavingStar. That's $4.96 for four All, or $1.24 each -- still a deal!
UPDATE: As several readers have reported (I just confirmed it at my CVS too), even though the ad says limit 1 ExtraBuck, the limit is showing on the receipt as limit 3. That's $1.96 for 4 after the deal, or .49 each!
Seriously, these cereals are gigantic!
I ran to Walmart this morning to get a copy of the Tribune (yes, I know I could have gotten it cheaper elsewhere, but Walmart is right by my house, and we're getting a lot of snow, so convenience won!) and I did a quick price-check on the new Post bagged cereals, as we have a high-value $1.50 printable for these:
33-ounce Honey Comb is $4.58 at my Walmart = that's $3.08 after coupon.
To put that in perspective, Walmart sells 12-ounce Honey Comb for $2.32. Buying the 33-ounce Honey Comb for $3.08 is the equivalent of paying about $1.03/box for the smaller ones.
Well, my children like Honey Comb, plus I couldn't resist surprising the kids with a gigantic bag of cereal that is nearly as large as our dog:
Jewel-Osco, Mariano's, Kroger, CVS/pharmacy and Peapod shoppers... SavingStar has new ecoupons to load today!
Just a reminder for you too - SavingStar ecoupons DO have load limits, just like printable coupons have print limits. If you are interested in ANY of these offers, it's a good idea to load them while they are available. I receive many emails from people wanting to know where some of these offers "disappear to" mid month. I load them all, then use whatever lines up to good sales! It never hurts to load everything you might be interested in.

If you're a Coke drinker, grab the points from your current 12-packs and enter them at MyCokeRewards.com today through 2/3 for double points! Each 12-pack code is worth 20 points, up from the usual 10.
During the crazy free Coke deals at CVS recently, I had several readers ask how to maximize their Coke Rewards points. I sit on mine and hold onto them for promotions like this, where I can accrue more points than I technically "have" -- then use them for more free coupons when the free-product coupons are severely discounted (say, 30 points instead of 200 or more.)
And, if you love Coke as much as I do, you might enjoy checking out Coca-Cola's online store too! So many fun Coke items to browse through. Shipping is free for orders over $49.

Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.
OshKosh B’gosh carries a wide variety of clothing for kids in sizes ranging from infant up to size 12, and this week, OshKosh invited me to check out their new spring clothing collection. Oshkosh's new collection is Nautical Style, and right now, the entire store's prices are 40%-50% off, excluding doorbusters and clearance.
OshKosh also has a new printable coupon valid through 3/12/14: Save 20% on a purchase of $30 or more!
I printed this, and then I headed to the OshKosh B’gosh store at the mall in Huntley, Illinois.
At the store, I was greeted with several displays from the Nautical Style line:
