Make Your Own: Microwave Popcorn Bags

Not only is microwave popcorn expensive, but it is full of additives.

It's super easy and cheap to make. You can add your own seasoning and butter.
See below for seasoning combinations.

Reader Tip: Flat Pop? Not in my house!

Thanks Prosser Pete for posting this tip on our Facebook page the Moncton Coupon Lady

"Dislike flat Pepsi like me? 
I buy two liter bottles on sale for 99 cents , Then I pour the contents into three 750 ml Pepsi bottles (it pours easy-no funnel - leave some room at the top, it should work out evenly). One or two inches of pop might go flat eventually in the smaller bottle but not so wasteful. You are really getting a cans worth of Pepsi (or Coke etc) for 15 cents. I think it is better pouring when all bottles are cold.   -  Prosser Pete"
