As promised, I thought I’d write a little bit more on couponing.
The internet is a GREAT resource when it comes to finding coupons. And so far, I have never had any problems with my local stores taking internet coupons. Just be sure you are going to legitimate coupon websites.
First of all, for tips on how to combine grocery coupons with manufacturer coupons, I can’t give enough praise to CouponMom. Her service is completely free and she also has a blog with other frequent savings tips. (Like $5 off $15 at TGI Fridays… I wish we had a TGI Fridays…). She also has an e-book you can download for free that will give you lots of how-to advice.
Those coupon inserts in your Sunday paper have their own websites with printable coupons on them… and some of them are even better than the ones in the paper. Check out SmartSource and RedPlum for coupons. I also like Coupons.com for printables.
Sign up for e-mail lists for any and all products you like or may want to try. I recently signed up for Robutussin’s e-mail list and got a $2 off coupon for any size cough syrup. Not bad.
If you really want to become a coupon queen (or king), you can check out the chatter on these two websites: Hot Coupon World, and A Full Cup. These two websites have lots of talk in their forums about great coupon deals and even do sales or trades of coupons. They also have great tips on their websites. I especially like A Full Cup because it has a coupon generator and it has cool links for what stuff to buy at Amazon when you are $1 short of the free shipping.
