Do you want to start saving money for your family by Couponing ? Couponing does take some time if you want to get the most savings but you can still coupon with limited time by joining coupon Facebook groups and downloading coupon apps to your cell phone or computer. You can still get things for free or for pennies without extreme couponing!!
Here is how:
1. First you need to get inserts. Inserts come in the Sunday Newspaper. You can get 4 Sunday newspapers delivered to you by subscribing to your local newspaper. You can also get them at the dollar store. A lot of stores offer early Sunday newspapers on Saturday.
2. Find out if the stores you shop at offer club cards. Some of the stores that offer club cards are K-mart, CVS, Safeway, and Walgreens. With the club cards you will get the special sales the store offers. Some of them also offer points. You can get the club cards by going on-line and typing in the store or you can join at the store.
3.Join coupon Facebook groups. Good groups to join are the antelope_frugal_friends or Cuckoo for coupon deals. By joining these groups you will be able to see what the best deals out there are. Group members post what they bought with what coupon by using which insert. This way you don’t have to cut all your coupons ahead of time or organize them in your handy coupon book. All you will need to do is cut out the coupon you are planning on using.
4. Download a coupon app to your cell phone or computer. The two coupon apps I like are Favado and coupon cloud. The Favado app lets you select the store you want to shop at and then it does all the work for you by letting you know what the best deals that particular store is offering and what coupon to use.
5. Start saving by shopping and using your coupons.
At Walgreens there was a $3.99 sale on L’Oreal products and I had a coupon for $3.00 off so I only paid .99 cents.
Yes you can shop at the dollar store. I got 12 crest tooth pastes for free. I only paid for tax. I had four coupons that said buy three get $3.00 off. You have to make sure you have the right size. On each coupon it says which size item this coupon applies to.
Walgreens offers their coupons at the front of the store. You can only use these coupons at their store. You can also use manufactured coupons on top of their coupons. Garner Fructis hair products were on sale for buy 2 pay $6. The Walgreens coupon was buy 2 save $2.00. I had two manufactured coupons for $2.00 off so I got 4 for free. I only paid for tax.
Most stores take manufactured coupons. Every store I have been to have taken my coupons. Ask if they take coupons if you are not sure. Some stores will only take manufactured coupons (the ones in the inserts) and they won’t take the printed coupons off your computer. Other stores take both.
If an item is on sale or marked down you can use the stores coupons plus the manufactured coupons.You can use one manufactured coupon for each item. You can not use two different manufactured coupons for one item. I have 2 other articles I wrote on my blog about Couponing. Please read them if you want to know more about Couponing.
