A bunch of new & high-value printable coupons were just released today! Here are the best ones I see:
Pizza lovers, Jewel-Osco's got a three-day sale coming up 3/20-3/22. DiGiorno Pizzeria 18.3-34.2oz. pizzas will be on sale for $4.77 each, limit 4.
Buy two and use this $2-off-2 printable to drop these to $3.77 each!
Through 3/22, these are also part of a national Catalina:
- Buy 2 & get $1 Catalina
- Buy 3 & get $2 Catalina
- Buy 4 or more & get $3 Catalina
Can you tell this is going to be a crazy deal? With two printables, buy FOUR. Use two $2-off-2s. Pay $15.08 and get a $3 Catalina! That's $12.08 for FOUR, or $3.02 each! Great price for DiGiorno!
I'd advise printing these coupons now, as they may not be available any more once the sale begins...
Reader Ellen spotted Fisher Nut Exactly snack bites at Jewel-Osco for $3.49. Use this $1 printable coupon and pay $2.49! Then, submit your receipt to Snap by Groupon and get another $1 back. Now you're down to $1.49 for this new snack!
I'm excited about trying these -- they're popcorn, nut and chocolate/caramel clusters. Yum!

This week's syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column is entitled "Getting the sale." Here's an excerpt:
"A big department store chain sends out coupons for $10 off any purchase of $10 or more. I am pretty sure they do this all over the country. Anyway, I never ever let one of these coupons expire. They are usually good for a week, so I will tuck it into my purse and carry it with me. When I am out, if I am passing by this store, I will go in and find something for $10 or less. It might be a couple pairs of socks or a bath towel or even a clearance shirt. Not using this would be like throwing away a $10 bill!"

Ask me about my favorite restaurants in the far northwest 'burbs where we live, and after raving about a great local sushi bar, a fantastic authentic Mexican place, and a wonderful place to grab brunch, I'd also throw the Crystal Lake Pizza Hut into my list.
Really. The Pizza Hut location in Crystal Lake, Illinois is one of the most charming restaurants in McHenry County.
Now, I know what you're likely thinking. Pizza Hut? A Pizza Hut? What's so special about a Pizza Hut?
Well, while it's true that Pizza Hut's food doesn't differ from location to location, the restaurant itself is what keeps us coming back, year after year, especially when the weather's cooler. Why?

So says the Washington Post in a new story about, well, TP:
Americans have a new favorite way to flush money down the drain: luxury toilet paper.
Sales in the United States of what the industry calls "luxury" rolls — anything quilted, lotioned, perfumed or ultra-soft, from two- to four-ply — climbed to $1.4 billion last year, outpacing all other kinds of toilet paper for the first time in nearly a decade...
Luxury toilet paper sales have grown more than 70 percent since 2000, and they're expected to keep growing faster than all other categories every year through at least 2018.
Though it's a little pricier, analysts said, nearly everyone can still afford it, making it a surprising barometer for how confident Americans are that they can afford a minor splurge.
Before last year, luxury toilet paper's sales growth last beat out the other rolls in 2000 and 2005, both boom years for the U.S. economy and consumer spending. The luxury toilet paper business is expected to grow 9 percent over the next five years, compared with 6 percent for the cheapest "economy" lines.
As the article continues, we learn that "luxury" toilet papers are the same brands I often consider to be "deal" toilet papers, like Quilted Northern, Cottonelle, and Charmin.
A special line of lavender-scented Angel Soft, for instance, has been targeted to Hispanic buyers, said Vivek Joshi, vice president of Georgia-Pacific's tissue division... For the same reason, Charmin unveiled a chamomile-scented toilet paper in August with an endorsement from Ana Patricia González, host of "¡Despierta América!," a morning show on Spanish-language network Univision.
Even in a down market, people want a little bit of luxury," Umphress said. "They may not be able to take a spa vacation. But they can make their home a little bit more spa-like."

Do you like to take surveys for cash, prizes, points or other compensation? Here's a roundup of compensated survey opportunities on the web. I have not personally tried all of these, though I have tried some. While I don't believe you'll get rich completing surveys, some of them provide an opportunity to make a little "fun money" or try out new products and review them.
If you plan to participate, I would recommend using an alternate email address (a free one like Yahoo or Gmail is fine) to keep your survey email separate from your personal email.
Pinecone Research is one of the most well-known survey and review companies on the web. They conduct on-line interviews with consumers from all walks of life to obtain their opinions about new products. Pinecone is very selective and looks for specific demographics of people, so don't be upset if you fill out their qualifying survey and are not accepted. They only open enrollment to the general public at certain times, and you can always try again in the future.
Fill out a short Pinecone questionnaire to see if you qualify. If you do, each survey pays $3.00 via check or Paypal. Pinecone often sends products to try for paid review too, which I find fun. I've tried & reviewed everything from skincare products to new beverages -- long before they actually hit the market.
Opinion Outpost conducts surveys and offers cash rewards, Amazon gift cards, game points, and donations to charities. The minimum cash out for Paypal is $10 and $5 for Amazon gift cards.
Springboard America is an online research community. Earn Survey Dollars and help shape future product campaigns.
MySurvey invites consumers to influence future products and services by volunteering to participate in consumer research. Share your opinions and redeem your rewards points for cash and merchandise.
