How to Coupon - Answering the Most Asked Question What is couponing exactly? How many times have you been asked that?!?!? If you’re new to this whole couponing game and just learning how to coupon, get ready for that question to come up. A lot! When I’m asked that question, it’s a little different.

How I Put Together a Coupon Trip Lots of people say “teach me how to coupon” or “I don’t know where I begin.” I thought it might be helpful to run you through how I put a coupon trip together each and every week. I’ll tell you right from the start that I’m a spreadsheet person. I’m not going to get into all the nitty gritty on inputting my trips on spreadsheets. That would be for another post, but whether you type your lists or hand-write them, the steps I take would be pretty much the same. So … [Read more...]

Do You Carry Your Coupon Policies? Do you keep up with your favorite store coupon policies? If not, you should be. I actually keep my coupon policies on my phone and a printed version of each in my binder. If I’m out I can use my phone, if I’m at home, I can use my hard copies. I also try to look up each store’s policy at least once a month to make sure there are no changes, and update my phone & hard copies as necessary. How many times have you gotten into a discussion with a cashier … [Read more...]

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Where I'm Finding Coupons I’ve been heavily couponing for about 3 years now. When I first started, I was finding coupons in all kinds of places I didn’t realize would have them. I lived in my current house down here in Ft. Lauderdale about a year before I realized that the little free local gazette they threw in our driveways on Wednesday evenings had the past Sunday’s coupons in it and if it’s the first Wednesday of the month, it also has the upcoming P&G insert! Who knew? Not me, that’s … [Read more...]

Living in the Southeast, my favorite store to coupon at is Publix. When I first moved down here, one of the first things I did was head to my closest Publix to check it … [Read more...]

Couponing Traps – Zealousness


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Common Couponing Traps – Zealousness Common couponing traps are seen in both new and veteran couponers alike. To say that couponers at large are zealous about their coupons is an understatement. To say that a new couponer that has just scored their first big haul is overly zealous may be more of an understatement. After a few years of owning this coupon website, and a few more years in retail, it’s safe to say that serious coupons are one thing: SERIOUS! There is absolutely nothing wrong. For … [Read more...]

Common Couponing Traps – Anxiety Yes, there are common couponing traps. Couponing is addictive. I get it. I am one of those people that has been caught up in the hype. Thankfully, as I write this, I am a little older, a little wiser, and have a little more grey in my temples. Where are the coupons for Just for Men? In my wise old age, I have come to realize that it’s OK if I don’t have a coupon for something. I can remember the good old days when I would spend a hefty amount of time clipping … [Read more...]

Couponers New Years Resolutions As Christmas approaches and we think forward to 2012, every couponer should be making their New Years Resolutions.  I have taken the last week myself to look back over the past year and determine what we could have done to make our household's financial position even better.  We are certainly at the mercy of the manufacturers to release great coupons.  We are held captive by the stores to make sure that the sales are good and the couponing policies easy to read … [Read more...]
