A group of this size is small enough to control and large enough to do some very worthwhile trading. So, when people start call- ing, give out the meeting information to the first 25 who say they will attend. Some of them won't show up. Put the names and phone numbers of subsequent callers on a waiting list for future meetings. Next week I'll tell you how my coupon club runs its meetings. This week's smart shopper is Pat Strobel of Akron, Ohio. She found a Johnson and Johnson offer of a free first-aid kit in a magazine. The offer required proofs from six of the company's products. So, Ms. Strobol went to her coupon file and found four 25-cent coupons for these same items. She used them when her local discount store offered to triple the value of its customers' coupons. Her total cost came to $2.06. She received the $4.49 first-aid kit free, and inside were three more 25-cent coupons. But her savings weren't finished. An insert in her newspaper contained a $1.25 refund for sending in part of the wrapper from the kit! "I'm ahead $3.68 not counting the additional 75 cents' worth of coupons," says Ms. Strobel. "My expe- rience confirms your advice to save cents-off coupons in an organized way. I had those first four coupons for more than a year before I was able to use them to make this 'home run' discount." Ms. Strobel and other readers whose smart shop- ping experiences appear in my column receive a copy of the refunding publication, The National Supermarket Shopper. Write to me in care of this newspaper. Here's a refund form to write for: Baker's Coconut $1 Cash Refund Offer, Gen- eral Foods Corp., P.O. Box 8058, East Court Street, Kankakee, Ill. 60901.
