Sunday Coupons

If you are just starting out this is the best weekend to do it. http://www.sundaycouponpreview.com/ has a list of the coupons you should find in this Sunday's paper. It includes 2 SmartSource, 1 RedPlum, 1 Proctor & Gamble, & Moments to Save (w/ Pepsi & Frito-Lay brands). The P&G only comes out once a month, and normally you only get 1 SmartSource at most.

You should look at either getting a Newspaper subscription from local paper or going to the Post Office and buying one. I also recommend getting a National Paper that has the inserts. Why? Well different areas of the country have different coupons offered. For example you might get a $1.00/2 in one area and a $0.50/1 in another. You would think, who cares I still save, well the $1.00 coupon doesn't double. Therefore the $0.50/1 is actually more like $1.00/1.

The number of Newspapers you should get is 1 per person in the household, I always buy 2 myself unless there will be a great coupon on say Propel, Water, Gatorade, etc that can occasionally be FREE.

Coupon Links

  • http://www.coupons.com/ - Tons of coupons updated often. If you go to other websites to learn about couponing they will usually have these available to print from their site.
  • http://www.couponnetwork.com - This site is from Catalina, the same company that prints the coupons at the checkout. They also show the current Catalina offers that will print from your favorite stores.
  • http://www.redplum.com/ - These are different than the ones you get from the Redplum out of the Newspaper. Be sure to check here as soon as you get an email because print quantities are limited.
  • http://www.pgeverydaysolutions.com/ - Proctor and Gamble website. You can sign up to receive Free samples, and print coupons.
  • http://www.smartsource.com/ - Same as Red Plum these are coupons different from the ones you find in the Sunday Paper. Make sure you check here often.
  • http://www.target.com - Target has their own exclusive coupons that you can stack with Manufacturer's coupons ofthen making things FREE or close to it.

There are also companies that allow you to load your Bonus Card with offers. They state the electronic coupons can be combined with in store offers, and manufacturers coupons.

Coupon Tips
  1. You can print 2 coupons per website per computer. If you have two computers you can print 4.
  2. Only load 45 eCoupons onto your savings card, any more and it will delete the first one entered.
  3. Check back often. The websites are always adding new coupons. If you subscribe to the newsletter they will let you know when (normally Sunday or Wednesday).
  4. Find companies you like on Facebook and Like/Friend them. Occasionally you will get coupons.
  5. Find a manufacturers website from a product you use. Sometimes they will have coupons if you sign up or take a survey. You can also email them and tell them how much you love their product and see if they will send you some coupons.

Just Starting Out

Like many I wanted to see what this Extreme Couponing was about. Now I don't need 100 tubes of toothpaste but I could use enough to last me and my fiance awhile. So I looked around the net found some ideas and got started. Two weeks ago I purchased 2 local newspapers, and printed everything I could find online. I used a few sites like Ann's Crazy World, Coupon Mom, and For The Mommas for ideas and help.

I didn't have all the coupons they said I needed, but I did have a few. I only shop at Weis and Martin's so limited my first shopping trip to those two stores. So how well did I make out... Total before bonus buys and coupons $427. Grand total after all discounts $227, a $200 savings. While I've heard stories of over 80% savings, I did have to buy a few things that were not on the plan because they were needed now.
