• Where can I find coupons? Coupons can be found in several places! The most popular source is from those good ol' fashioned Sunday newspapers. Other sources include www.coupons.com, www.redplum.com, www.smartsource.com and becoming increasingly popular is through Facebook.
  • What are the methods of organizing coupons? Organizing your coupons depends on what kind of person you are! :) Personally, I use the binder method. The binder method uses a binder and baseball card inserts to hold your coupons and they are organized by category (i.e., pantry, frozen, oral care, baking, etc.). This way involves cutting out the coupons and filing them in the baseball card holders. Use this method if you lean towards extreme organization and have a significant amount of time to devote to cutting and organizing coupons. Another option is to utilize the accordion file method. This method involves using a large expandable accordion file to place the complete, uncut inserts into. Simply write the date the insert came out and when you're ready to shop, go to that particular insert and cut out the coupons you need! There are, honestly, several different other methods you can use but it is important to try out what works best with you and stick with it.
  • Do you post weekly coupon deals? Unfortunately, at this time, I cannot. I simply do not have the time or resources to do so. Maybe on down the line I can start on that venture but right now it just is not feasible. There are websites out there that are dedicated to that and I highly recommend Southern Savers, Couponing to Disney and The Krazy Coupon Lady.
  • Can I see what your binder looks like to get an idea of how to do this? Yes, absolutely! Simply see this post [insert link].

  • I'm just starting out with couponing. What do you recommend is the best approach to my first couponing experience? First off, pick a store that is near you and you feel comfortable going to - Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Target, etc. Only start with ONE store so you do not feel overwhelmed by everything. Decide on a few deals, organize your coupons and head out! I know it will be exciting to try and nab every single deal out there at once, but that's not the best option. Trust me, I know from experience. You'll get burnt out! It's best to take it easy and slowly build up incorporating more stores into your coupon adventures.
  • Is this blog only going to be about couponing? While the main focus will be couponing, I will occasionally post about other items of interest that will cover a wide variety of topics.
