I'm new to the world of coupons. I'm finding it takes some time and a little work to get the hang of the coupon game. I follow these blogs designed to match coupons with items on sale for maximum savings.
Money Saving Mom-she lives in Wichita, but blogs about deals all over. I love her site.
$5 Dinners-this Mom posts recipes for her family that can be made for 5 dollars or less. She also just had a guest post about e-coupons
Common sense with Money-this site is really good for Kroger, Walgreens, and Target sales.
Stretching a Buck-I read this every day.
Meal Planning Mommies-I found this last week and it is quickly becoming a favorite.
I just started using e-coupons. These are coupons that can be loaded onto your Kroger/Dillons card. I use cellfire.com, shortcuts.com, and P&GSaver
Also, did you know that you can use manufacter coupons with store coupons? I didn't until recently. That means, if you have a Dillons coupon for an item and a coupon from the newspaper, you can use them both for one item. Also, Dillons doubles coupons up to a dollar. My friend, Lissa, told me about this site. I'm thinking of joining. I learned last week that Kevin's grandma gets the Sunday paper, but doesn't use the coupons, so I'm hoping to score extra coupons by using hers as well.
This does take some time. I "had" to buy a new purse to hold my coupon organizer. But I'm already seeing the reward and the money saved by using coupons and checking out the sales each week.
So, what am I missing? Do you have any favorite money saving sites? Leave a comment and share...
