Where to Learn About Couponing
Southern Savers – She explains sales cycles, and coupon match-ups like no other. Southern Savers is hands-down, my favorite couponing site.
Couponmom.com – probably the most famous couponing site of them all. Her Coupon Mom system was (I think) the first article (actually it was given to me printed out) I ever read on couponing, and it made so much sense!
Living Well Spending Less – This series of 8 articles breaks couponing down into easy to understand steps.
Coupons.com – This is by far the most widely used printable coupon database to my knowledge, and provides the widest selection of coupons. – Everything from diapers and wipes, to razors, to dog food.
Swagbucks – Not only does Swagbucks have a printable coupon database, but they pay you 10 swagbucks per coupon that you use. That’s the equivalent of getting another $0.10 off per item!
Redplum – You’ll often find high value coupons here, that you may not be able to find anywhere else.
Womanfreebies.com – where you can find the best samples, coupons, sweepstakes and freebies from your favorite big brands specially chosen by women for women.
Grocery Coupon Network – receive free printable coupons, exclusive email savings, recipes and helpful grocery savings tips.
Target.com – Some of the best deals you can get are when you stack a sale and manufacturer’s coupon with a store coupon. Target is one of the best places (in my opinion) to do just this! They often have a lot of printable coupons available on their website.
Publix.com Will occasionally have high-value manufacturer’s coupons that can’t be found elsewhere.
Coupon match-up sites
Southernsavers.com – This is my very favorite site for store sales + coupon match-ups. She even give you deal scenarios for how to get the most bang for your buck!
Iheartthemart.com – If you’re a Walmart shopper, this site is priceless! It gives you current Walmart deals, roundups, and price matching opportunities.
http://mojosavings.com this website offers lots of deals, and savings opportunities, including Dollar Tree coupon Matchups, and has a coupon database.
Last of all, don’t forget your local newspaper. Our local Sunday paper costs a dollar at the Dollar Tree, or $1.36 at the grocery store, and contains the Red Plum, and Smart Source inserts. If you use even just a few of the coupons in it, spending that little bit, as counter-intuitive as that may seem, can save you a lot of money!
