What to do if my coupon is rejected?

My Coupon is Rejected- Now What?

What can you do when your coupons are refused?


How many times have you been couponing and found great deals, only to have the

cashier, CSM, or someone in a management position, at your local store, refuse your

coupons. Let's face it, not everyone is a fan of coupons or people who use them. The truth

is, there are some real haters out there. Not only do couponers have to deal with haters,

but also with the completely coupon illiterate.

What can we do as consumers?


Number one, you should never feel guilty about using coupons. It is not your fault that

the stores you frequent have uneducated people in charge of making decisions on your

coupons.

Number two, always be polite, remember you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

Yes, I know this is hard to do, especially after standing 45 minutes in a self check out

lanes in Walmart, and you are still waiting for a CSM.


Number three and I think the most important thing we can do as consumers; stand your

ground, don't just walk away. You have the right to save money, using your coupons.

Stores have a chain of command, if necessary, go to the top of the ladder. I have listed

corporate phone numbers of a few of the places you may use coupons. I strongly advise

you print these numbers and place them in your binders. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Best Ways to Lower Stress and Anxiety While Hosting Thanksgiving Holiday Meals

Tips on how to Lower Stress During Holiday Meals

How to Keep your Sanity While Hosting Thanksgiving Dinner


      Thanksgiving​ ​lands​ ​on​ ​the​ ​fourth​ ​Thursday​ ​of​ ​November​ ​every​ ​year;​ ​we​ ​all​ ​know​ ​that. 
 Although​ ​it​ ​seems​ ​like​ ​this​ ​holiday​ ​sneaks​ ​up​ ​on​ ​us​ ​every​ ​year.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​why​ ​you​ ​should​ ​start 
 preparing​ ​now.​ ​Planning​ ​your​ ​Thanksgiving​ ​dinner​ ​in​ ​advance​ ​can​ ​help​ ​you​ ​feel​ ​confident​ ​and 
 calm​ ​in​ ​the​ ​kitchen. These​ ​useful​ ​Thanksgiving​ ​tips​ ​will​ ​help​ ​you​ ​stay​ ​stress​ ​free​ ​and​ ​help​ ​keep 
 you​ ​organized.​ ​All​ ​it​ ​takes​ ​is​ ​a​ ​little​ ​planning.​ ​Because​ ​I​ ​want​ ​you​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a​ ​great​ ​Thanksgiving 
 dinner,​ ​let’s​ ​get​ ​started.
      The​ ​first​ ​thing​ ​you​ ​need​ ​to​ ​do​ ​is​ ​simple;​ ​clean​ ​your​ ​home.​ ​Give​ ​your​ ​house​ ​a​ ​good​ ​deep 
 cleaning​ ​from​ ​top​ ​to​ ​bottom.​ ​Be​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​dust,​ ​don’t​ ​forget​ ​your​ ​ceiling​ ​fans​ ​and​ ​light​ ​fixtures. Clean 
 out​ ​the​ ​refrigerator​ ​to​ ​make​ ​room​ ​for​ ​more​ ​food.​ ​Wash​ ​all​ ​bed​ ​linens​ ​just​ ​in​ ​case​ ​you​ ​have 
 unexpected​ ​guest​ ​that​ ​may​ ​want​ ​to​ ​spend​ ​the​ ​night.​ ​While​ ​you​ ​are​ ​at​ ​it,​ ​go​ ​ahead​ ​and​ ​steam 
 clean​ ​carpets​ ​and​ ​wash​ ​your​ ​curtains​ ​or​ ​drapes.​ ​Once​ ​you​ ​have​ ​cleaned​ ​everything​ ​until​ ​it 
 sparkles,​ ​add​ ​some​ ​type​ ​of​ ​scented​ ​air​ ​freshener​ ​in​ ​a​ ​nice​ ​fall​ ​festive​ ​fragrance,​ ​such​ ​as pumpkin 
 spice.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​my​ ​families​ ​favorite​ ​scent​ ​for​ ​Thanksgiving.​ ​​ ​Most​ ​people​ ​feel​ ​very​ ​relaxed​ ​and 
 welcome​ ​in​ ​a​ ​clean​ ​fragrant​ ​home,​ ​I​ ​know​ ​I​ ​do.
      The​ ​second​ ​thing​ ​you​ ​need​ ​to​ ​do​ ​is​ ​create​ ​a​ ​guest​ ​list.​ ​You​ ​need​ ​to​ ​know​ ​how​ ​many 
 people​ ​will​ ​be​ ​attending.​ ​The​ ​number​ ​of​ ​people​ ​coming​ ​to​ ​dinner​ ​is​ ​the​ ​deciding​ ​factor​ ​on​ ​how big 
 the​ ​turkey​ ​needs​ ​to​ ​be​ ​and​ ​how​ ​many​ ​table​ ​settings​ ​you​ ​will​ ​need.​ ​Be​ ​sure​ ​and​ ​ask​ ​yourself these 
 three​ ​questions​ ​when​ ​creating​ ​your​ ​guest​ ​list.​ ​One,​ ​does​ ​anyone​ ​have​ ​food​ ​allergies?​ ​Two,​ ​how 
 many​ ​children​ ​are​ ​attending?​ ​Three,​ ​do​ ​I​ ​have​ ​any​ ​picky​ ​eaters? 
      Next,​ ​consider​ ​a​ ​potluck​ ​dinner.​ ​Do​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to​ ​ease​ ​the​ ​workload​ ​on​ ​yourself?​ ​You​ ​are 
 the​ ​host,​ ​you​ ​decide.​ ​The​ ​host​ ​should​ ​always​ ​provide​ ​the​ ​main​ ​meat​ ​dish.​ ​You​ ​could​ ​make​ ​the 
 traditional​ ​turkey​ ​or​ ​cook​ ​a​ ​ham​ ​and​ ​ask​ ​the​ ​guest​ ​to​ ​bring​ ​the​ ​rest​ ​of​ ​the​ ​trimmings.​ ​Ask​ ​your  guest​ ​to​ ​bring​ ​things​ ​like​ ​mashed​ ​potatoes,​ ​stuffing,​ ​cranberry​ ​sauce,​ ​and​ ​so​ ​on.
      One​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​obvious​ ​tips​ ​to​ ​staying​ ​stress​ ​free​ ​this​ ​Thanksgiving​ ​is​ ​to​ ​use​ ​traditional 
 recipes.​ ​Don’t​ ​spend​ ​time​ ​hunting​ ​or​ ​searching​ ​for​ ​new​ ​recipes.​ ​Use​ ​only​ ​the​ ​recipes​ ​that​ ​you 
 have​ ​already​ ​taste​ ​tested.​ ​You​ ​know​ ​the​ ​dishes​ ​that​ ​your​ ​friends​ ​and​ ​family​ ​love.​ ​Give​ ​your guest 
 their​ ​all​ ​time​ ​family​ ​favorites,​ ​don’t​ ​bother​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​impress​ ​them​ ​with​ ​some​ ​new​ ​fancy​ ​dish.​ ​I 
 say​ ​if​ ​it’s​ ​not​ ​broke​ ​don’t​ ​fix​ ​it.
      The​ ​next​ ​step​ ​to​ ​keeping​ ​this​ ​day​ ​of​ ​feasting​ ​stress-free​ ​is​ ​to​ ​plan​ ​a​ ​menu. There​ ​are 
 several​ ​things​ ​to​ ​consider​ ​when​ ​planning​ ​a​ ​menu.​ ​You​ ​will​ ​need​ ​a​ ​list​ ​of​ ​foods​ ​that​ ​you​ ​are going 
 to​ ​serve.​ ​Making​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​have​ ​enough​ ​food​ ​gets​ ​top​ ​priority.​ ​A​ ​good​ ​rule​ ​of​ ​thumb,​ ​my​ ​mom 
 always​ ​says​ ​“It​ ​is​ ​better​ ​to​ ​have​ ​too​ ​much​ ​food,​ ​than​ ​not​ ​enough.”​ ​Remember​ ​all​ ​items​ ​do​ ​not 
 have​ ​to​ ​be​ ​homemade.​ ​Save​ ​time​ ​by​ ​filling​ ​in​ ​with​ ​store​ ​bought​ ​items​ ​such​ ​as​ ​bread,​ ​desserts, or 
 a​ ​cheese​ ​plate​ ​appetizer.​ ​This​ ​will​ ​help​ ​you​ ​to​ ​free​ ​up​ ​some​ ​of​ ​your​ ​valuable​ ​time.​ ​Now​ ​you have 
 more​ ​time​ ​to​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​other​ ​dishes​ ​or​ ​decorating.
      Many​ ​hostesses​ ​stress​ ​over​ ​table​ ​settings​ ​and​ ​d├ęcor. ​​However,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​discovered​ ​that 
 most​ ​guest​ ​don’t​ ​even​ ​seem​ ​to​ ​notice.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​a​ ​day​ ​for​ ​family,​ ​friends​ ​and​ ​football.​ ​Don’t​ ​get your 
 turkey​ ​knotted​ ​up,​ ​just​ ​keep​ ​it​ ​simple.​ ​Choose​ ​a​ ​centerpiece,​ ​this​ ​can​ ​be​ ​a​ ​floral​ ​arrangement, 
 candle​ ​lit​ ​dinner,​ ​or​ ​something​ ​your​ ​child​ ​hand​ ​crafted.​ ​Decide​ ​if​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to​ ​use​ ​China​ ​or paper, 
 silverware​ ​or​ ​flatware.​ ​Are​ ​you​ ​going​ ​to​ ​use​ ​cloth​ ​or​ ​paper​ ​napkins?​ ​Once​ ​you​ ​have​ ​made​ ​your 
 choices​ ​go​ ​to​ ​the​ ​store​ ​and​ ​purchase​ ​the​ ​things​ ​you​ ​need​ ​to​ ​complete​ ​your​ ​table​ ​settings​ ​and 
 home​ ​decorating​ ​items.
      Do​ ​you​ ​need​ ​to​ ​rent,​ ​buy,​ ​or​ ​borrow​ ​items?​ ​Do​ ​your​ ​dinner​ ​guest​ ​exceed​ ​your​ ​seating 
 capabilities?​ ​If​ ​you​ ​have​ ​more​ ​guest​ ​than​ ​chairs,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​always​ ​set​ ​up​ ​a​ ​card​ ​table​ ​for​ ​the 
 children​ ​invited.​ ​Plastic​ ​tables​ ​and​ ​folding​ ​chairs​ ​are​ ​very​ ​handy​ ​during​ ​the​ ​holidays.​ ​They​ ​can also 
 be​ ​quite​ ​expensive​ ​.​ ​Are​ ​these​ ​items​ ​something​ ​you​ ​need​ ​to​ ​invest​ ​in?​ ​Would​ ​you​ ​be​ ​better​ ​off 
 renting​ ​or​ ​borrowing​ ​these​ ​things?
      Now​ ​let’s​ ​talk​ ​turkey,​ ​what​ ​size​ ​turkey​ ​do​ ​I​ ​need?​ ​You​ ​will​ ​need​ ​to​ ​allow​ ​one​ ​and​ ​a​ ​half 
 pounds​ ​of​ ​turkey​ ​per​ ​person.​ ​This​ ​formula​ ​has​ ​never​ ​let​ ​my​ ​mom​ ​down.​ ​She​ ​uses​ ​this​ ​formula​ ​to 
 make​ ​sure​ ​there​ ​is​ ​always​ ​enough.​ ​Trust​ ​me,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​use​ ​this​ ​formula,​ ​you​ ​will​ ​have​ ​plenty​ ​of
 leftovers.
     Choose​ ​your​ ​serving​ ​style​ ​in​ ​advance.​ ​Are​ ​you​ ​going​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a​ ​buffet​ ​style​ ​meal​ ​or​ ​sit 
 down​ ​dinner?​ ​I​ ​prefer​ ​a​ ​sit​ ​down​ ​meal​ ​because​ ​it​ ​is​ ​cozy.​ ​Sit​ ​down​ ​meals​ ​let​ ​guest​ ​share​ ​a relaxed 
 and​ ​warm​ ​atmosphere​ ​as​ ​they​ ​dine.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​choose​ ​a​ ​buffet​ ​style​ ​meal​ ​be​ ​sure​ ​and​ ​clean​ ​off​ ​your 
 counter​ ​tops​ ​for​ ​extra​ ​space.​ ​Decide​ ​if​ ​you​ ​will​ ​need​ ​food​ ​warmers,​ ​buffet​ ​trays,​ ​or​ ​extra​ ​plates.
      Part​ ​of​ ​planning​ ​in​ ​advance​ ​is​ ​getting​ ​your​ ​cooking​ ​gear​ ​together.​ ​You​ ​want​ ​to​ ​make sure 
 you​ ​have​ ​all​ ​of​ ​the​ ​basic​ ​cooking​ ​tools​ ​needed.​ ​You​ ​will​ ​need​ ​a​ ​meat​ ​thermometer,​ ​oven​ ​mitts, 
 trivet,​ ​casserole​ ​dishes​ ​and​ ​the​ ​like.​ ​Make​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​have​ ​a​ ​large​ ​enough​ ​roasting​ ​pan.​ ​Don’t wait 
 until​ ​you​ ​get​ ​ready​ ​to​ ​put​ ​the​ ​turkey​ ​in​ ​the​ ​oven​ ​to​ ​discover​ ​that​ ​your​ ​roasting​ ​pan​ ​is​ ​too​ ​small.
      At​ ​last,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​ready​ ​to​ ​make​ ​a​ ​grocery​ ​list.​ ​We​ ​will​ ​use​ ​our​ ​menu​ ​plan​ ​to​ ​design​ ​a 
 detailed​ ​grocery​ ​list.​ ​Refer​ ​to​ ​each​ ​dish​ ​listed​ ​on​ ​your​ ​menu​ ​plan,​ ​make​ ​a​ ​note​ ​of​ ​any​ ​or​ ​all 
 ingredients​ ​you​ ​need​ ​to​ ​purchase,​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​make​ ​that​ ​dish.​ ​Make​ ​a​ ​note​ ​of​ ​the​ ​grocery​ ​store 
 aisle​ ​the​ ​products​ ​can​ ​be​ ​found​ ​on.​ ​This​ ​tip​ ​will​ ​help​ ​save​ ​you​ ​some​ ​time​ ​while​ ​shopping.
 Shop​ ​early​ ​and​ ​often.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​how​ ​to​ ​avoid​ ​the​ ​crowds.​ ​Stock​ ​up​ ​early​ ​on​ ​basic​ ​essentials 
 like​ ​flour,​ ​butter,​ ​chicken​ ​stock,​ ​salt,​ ​and​ ​other​ ​seasonings.​ ​Don’t​ ​wait​ ​until​ ​the​ ​last​ ​minute​ ​when 
 everything​ ​is​ ​picked​ ​over.​ ​Order​ ​in​ ​advance.​ ​Call​ ​and​ ​reserve​ ​things​ ​like​ ​rolls,​ ​bread,​ ​and​ ​cakes.
 Don’t​ ​fight​ ​over​ ​the​ ​last​ ​pecan​ ​pie!
      In​ ​conclusion,​ ​this​ ​is​ ​your​ ​party.​ ​You​ ​set​ ​the​ ​tone.​ ​Don’t​ ​forget,​ ​your​ ​guest​ ​will​ ​notice​ ​if you 
 are​ ​stressed​ ​out.​ ​Your​ ​behavior​ ​and​ ​actions​ ​will​ ​show​ ​it.​ ​Seeing​ ​you​ ​stressed​ ​out​ ​will​ ​most​ ​likely 
 make​ ​your​ ​guest​ ​uncomfortable.​ ​Hopefully,​ ​these​ ​tips​ ​and​ ​techniques​ ​on​ ​how​ ​to​ ​host​ ​a stress-free 
 Thanksgiving​ ​dinner​ ​will​ ​be​ ​useful.​ ​Simply​ ​follow​ ​my​ ​advice​ ​to​ ​reduce​ ​your​ ​stress​ ​this 
 Thanksgiving​ ​and​ ​enjoy​ ​your​ ​holiday.
