A little vent, PLEASE know who you are talking about before spreading rumors (this is common sense right?)....Those who know me certainly don't need to read this, but it has to be clarified, and I will be contacting the people I need to, at the retailers, in order to clarify these situations.
I only promote ethical couponing on this page! I DO NOT fill carts with items and brag about using hundreds of coupons at a time. I am NOT an Extreme Couponer, and have never claimed to be. I simply buy what my family will use, and do occasional donations. This page was created to SHARE the deals, so everyone can save, not just me.
If you have taken a class with me, you know I have a limit on the # of items I purchase at one time, on a great deal ( in order to share that deal with others), so I Never clear shelves or fill carts with one item.
It has been brought to my attention that there are cashiers out there talking about "the Moncton Coupon Lady" and the way I coupon....PLEASE be aware, the person you think is me, is certainly NOT me.
This is a registered business, I started it out of love for ethical and reasonable couponing and to help others. I certainly could be making much more money with this venture, but prefer to keep all my business activities, advertising, etc very obvious and I am not hiding anything.
Sorry for the vent, but I have heard one too many stories about "the Moncton Coupon Lady" from concerned fans of the page...Thank you for keeping me posted on the word around town.
Cashiers and Store Managers: If you think you have the Moncton Coupon Lady at your cash, I will gladly give you my business card and id with my name, Ruth Ann Swansburg.... In Fact, I would be more than happy to discuss with retailers the ways they can curb bad couponing habits. I have consulted with a few businesses already, and am available to help, not hinder the coupon process.
I want to be able to continue using coupons and getting great deals, so I would never do ANYTHING that may cause it to be harder for any of us to get great deals.
Thank you for reading, and now, back to the regular happy posts and sharing!
I LOVE this recipe!
This is a great way to use up ripe bananas and have a healthy snack on hand for school lunches or daytime snacks. Play around with variations of dried fruits and / or nuts as well. You can use unsweetened apple sauce in this recipe, the Bananas are sweet and no sugar is needed.
SIMPLE BANANA OAT SNACKS
3 ripe bananas
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1/3 cup Apple Sauce (or vegetable oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
|1.||Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).|
|2.||In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Stir in oats, dates, oil, and vanilla.|
Mix well, and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
|3.||Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly brown.|
Moncton Coupon Lady: 10,000 Fans Celebration!!
: The Facebook Page is almost at 10,000 FANS!!! So it's time to get ready to Celebrate... Below you will see a list of businesses offering ...
From Kim White on my Moncton Coupon Lady - Trades & Trains Group:***ATTENTION FELLOW COUPONERS***It has come to my attention that one of our fellow couponers has been counterfeiting coupons in our local area. I do not know if she is a member of this group but she is a member of another group I am in because she told the cashier at our local Superstore that she copies and pastes coupons pictures from that group , then passes them off at the store. As a result, our Walmart will not take black & white printed coupons anymore, and our Superstore is clamping down on what they will accept. This is not right...it is STEALING...and I am not just talking a couple of coupons...I am talking HUNDREDS of dollars lost to these stores because of this. It is not right and must be stopped because she...and others doing it are ruining it for the rest of us honest couponers! So please IF YOU ARE GOING TO POST PICTURES OF YOUR COUPONS...PLEASE TAKE AN EXTRA COUPLE OF MINUTES TO COVER THE SCAN BAR CODE WITH A PIECE OF PAPER WITH VOID WRITTEN ON IT!!!! I will post an example...no one can pass a printed coupon without a bar code on it...so if it can't be seen... it cannot be copied. Please help to protect what we have from those who choose to steal! Thanks!!!!
THANK YOU Kim for sharing this. Unfortunately some people either do not realize what they are doing, or do not care! My page is here to educate and share, so I thank you for posting this.
Have you ever had an item scan at a higher price than what was displayed? Maybe you had the cashier adjust the price, or you simply didn't buy it...Well, here is the deal, you could have had it free, or $10 off. Here you will find the details on the Canadian Scanning Code Of Practice (SCOP). You may not have been aware of this before, but read on to be ahead of the game when it comes to SCOP!
What is SCOP?
It’s a voluntary code of practice that many Canadian Retailers follow. It is meant to ensure that consumers receive accurate pricing based on advertised prices (on shelf or in sales flyers). If the item is below $10, the customer receives the item for free. If the item is priced over $10, the customer receives $10 off the purchase price of the item.
You may see the following displayed in stores that follow this code of practice:

Things to remember when applying the Scanning Code Of Practice:
- SCOP only applies to non-ticketed items. If an item is tagged with a sticker at a lower price this is just corrected at cash, and Does NOT qualify for SCOP. SCOP applies to shelf prices and prices advertised in the store flyer ONLY.
- You will only receive SCOP on the First item scanned in wrong. (ie, you have 3 of the same product that all scan incorrectly. You receive the first as SCOP item, then get the corrected price on the remaining 2 items.)
- Some cashiers are unaware of the scanning code of practice policy and if their retailer participates. You may need to ask to speak to a supervisor or manager.
- It will likely be up to you to ask for it, the cashier will not likely to mention SCOP if an item rings in at a higher price.
This is a voluntary practice in Canada, so not all retailers follow it.

While directing New Life Mission, and organisation devoted to inner city children, Cal Maskery saw a great need to help transform the lives of parents so that the homes of the children, reached by the mission, could provide a safe and healthy environment. So began Harvest House Ministries in the spring of 1997 to expand outreach to include the entire family unit. Cal believed that this would break the cycle of crime, addictions and abuse passed on from parents to children through successive generations. That same vision remains clear in the hearts of our staff and volunteers today. Since we do not believe that anyone is a lost cause our purpose is to demonstrate Christ's love in practical ways. By using Biblical principles our hope is to see them restored to a productive, healthy lifestyle with Christ at the centre.
Today Harvest House Ministries has a growing number of centers throughout the Maritimes in order that we may address issues facing individuals. We serve in many different areas and our various programs include:
- Addiction recovery (2 locations)
- Emergency overnight shelters
- Medical Assistance
- Daily Discipleship Training
- Drop in Centers
- Youth Outreach
- 12 Step Overcomers program
