Layer 2.6 - Peelies

HOW TO DO IT: The layout of LAYERS

As discussed below, the key to shopping for free (or for very little, or sometimes less than free!) is stacking LAYERS of savings, atop each other.  I'll try not to make this too complicated (which can sometimes be a challenge for me :-)... I've realized it will require a separate blog entry for each Layer, however. 

And for some of this, it'll require a separate post for each "sub-Layer," too. I hope you find this easy to follow.

Stack of Savings Stuff:
LAYER #1: Weekly Store Sales
LAYER #2: Manufacturer's Coupons
- LAYER #2.1: Printable internet coupons
- LAYER #2.2: Newspaper coupons

- LAYER #2.3: Catalina Register Printout Coupons
- LAYER #2.4: Blinkies
- LAYER #2.5: Tearpads

LAYER #2.6 ~ Peelies

Like with Blinkies and Tearpads, also keep an eye out for those products on the store aisles that have coupons attached! These are called "Peelies" (for obvious reason :-). Keep in mind that you may have a situation in which some boxes of a product have peelies attached, while other boxes of the very same product don't have them.

TIP: Sometimes, the products for which Peelies are available also have printable internet coupons available.  In that case, you should use the printed coupon, instead of the Peelie. Just save the Peelie for later; Peelies have later expiration dates, and could come in helpful later on.

(You probably won't be able to use the product's Peelie and the printed coupon on the same item, because both of those are Manufacturer's Coupons, and stores only allow one Manufacturer's Coupon per item.)

My Coupon Database might include the Peelie coupons, which are currently out.  And here is a message board thread in which people have posted Peelie coupons, that they've found.

ETHICS POINT #1: Many people go to the stores, and when they see Peelies, they take them - without buying the item! I consider this unethical.
