Coupon Savvy

Here are some tips to get the most savings:

1. Sometimes it pays to wait to use certain coupons. If you don't need an item right away, wait to use the coupon. Check your local store circulars. A week or two after the coupons come out, local grocery stores may have a sale on the items you have coupons for. (See #3)

2. Check out the Internet. There are a lot of good sources that have free printable coupons.
3. Check out sites that list the sales at local stores and then tell you where to find additional coupons for extra savings. They do your work for you.
  • BeCentsAble (you don't need a subscription to view the grocery gathering section that lists blogs to check out that detail the savings for local stores in your area)
  • RefundCents (you need a subscription but it is only about $1/month to view the online material)
4. Join a company's club (Gerber, Similac, Enfamil, and Huggies) to receive free coupons and offers.

5. Check out blogs online for online coupon codes or free offers.
6. Get together with friends to share/exchange coupons or to exchange information about where to get good deals.

7. Take advantage of stores that double your coupons up to $1.00.

8. Of course, checking the Sunday paper for coupons is also an excellent way to get coupons.
