So maybe you've read some blogposts or you've seen "Extreme Couponing" and you're curious about coupons but you don't know how to get started.......
Here's a response I wrote to a family member this morning about couponing.....
You will LOVE couponing! So the most important things are:
1. Find out store policy on coupons- places like WalMart and Target have their policies online or you can always ask for the policy at the service desk
2. Get a Sunday paper! Every week! Go to http://www.sundaycouponpreview.com/ to find out how many "inserts" will be in that week's paper. I sometimes buy 2 or 3 papers to get extra coupons!
3. You can print coupons from sites like coupons.com (there is a link on my blog to print directly from there!) or redplum.com
4. The biggest thing to get from saving a few bucks to saving 50% or more is to do match ups. That's just where you match up your coupons to your store's sale. There are blogs that will do this for you, you just have to find one that matches the store you use. Great places to get deals are drup stores like Walgreens or CVS. Also grocery stores like Kroger and Food Giant have weekly sales and also double some coupons so you can get some great prices! Let me know if you have any more questions!
Also these 2 blogposts give more details:
Also if you are in the West TN area and want to know more, we are hosting our first ever "Coupon Night" at our church April 29!!!! This will be a potluck meal and information session featuring a coupon swap! It's going to be fun and you will learn loads about couponing! For more information email me at ecarter at eplus dot net.
