Great Tips for Successful Couponing!
- Look for coupons in the Sunday newspaper, in magazines, in your mailbox, at the grocery store shelf, on the Internet and with your cash register receipts.
- Keep those scissors nearby as you go through the newspaper, so you can clip as you go.
- Call manufacturers’ 800 numbers (often found on the packages of your favorite products) to request coupons. Up to 35% of manufacturers only send coupons upon request.
- Use a coupon organizer to sort coupons and keep it with you at all times (for those “unplanned” shopping trips).
- Organize your coupons in the order that you shop the store for quicker savings trips.
- Make coupon-clipping a family affair–it’s a great math and savings lesson for the kids.
- You can involve them in the process and let them ‘earn’ the coupon savings in lieu of an allowance.
- Use coupons with shorter expiration dates first to stock up on necessary items.
- Shop on double or triple coupon days and use manufacturers’ rebates to realize additional savings.
- Plan your families’ menu using coupons. Use coupons in conjunction with loyalty/frequent shopper cards from your local retailers.
