Must knows.... about couponing

Top Ten Must Knows

1. Cut and keep all coupons
-Even if it isn't the brand or item you normally use. Trust me.
2. The best place to print coupons:
- (my favorite)
* If you see a coupon that looks like a real good deal, print it because they go fast
3. Use coupons on sale items
- Most often a store brand item will be cheaper than using a coupon for a name brand item, unless you use the coupon when the name brand item is on sale.
4. Stack coupons
- My favorite! I had no clue you could do this before. Did you know you can use 1 manufacturer coupon and 1 store coupon on each item. Walgreens, Rite Aid, and Target are some of the stores that have store coupons and let you stack.
5. Plan Ahead and Stock up
- If you wait until the last minute to buy something you need, you probably won't get a good deal. Buy things on sale before you need them and get a stock pile going.
6. Subscribe for a Sunday newspaper
- It is definitely worth the money. You will get your money back by using just one or two coupons.
7. My favorite websites for deals:
- freebies2deals
8. You can use 1 manufacturer coupon per item
- For example: If you buy 2 boxes of Rice Krispies, you may use a coupon for $1/2 and a coupon that says one free bag of m&m's with the purchase of 2 boxes of Rice Krispies.
- Another example: Buy 2 body washes. Use a buy one get one free body wash coupon and $1/2 body washes.
9. Don't give up
- Even if you have same failures and frustrations, keep trying. Overtime it will become much easier and not take much extra time out of your days. I use to grocery shop out of necessity, but now I actually really enjoy it. It's a skill!
10. Have fun and share deals with others!
