So in the last year I have become addicted...to couponing! I know it may sound silly but I have learned in the last year that you can save money on everything! I have enjoyed reading blogs, looking in the paper and trying to figure out the best deals for my family. And what I have learned after a year of doing this...it feels like some stores pay me to shop there! I have had many of my friends and clients ask me "how do you do it?" So I thought I would write an intro for you to follow.
First log on to Swagbucks.com and sign up as a member. Make this your new homepage and also load the tool bar. Then as you set up your other accounts you might earn extra search points/bucks.
Sign your CVS card and Kroger Card up on the following sites. Load all the coupons you can on each. As you buy these items at the store, money will be taken off of your bill:
Note, you may also sign up your credit cards on the Upromise site too to earn more points.
Now on to the fun! You should be getting a Sunday newspaper. It is better if you have a subscription than to buy at the gas station. Also, ask all of your family to save there unused coupons for you. You will be getting SmartSource, RedPlum and P&G inserts.
My suggestion is to clip out the ones you already know you will use because it is a product you keep in your home. Come up with a filing method that works for you to keep what you have clipped out. Then my suggestion is to keep the inserts in tack...and file by either date or name of the insert. Then when you read the blogs you will know where to look for the insert with the coupon in it.
Blogs to read...
There are 100's of other coupon blogs you can read. These are just my personal top 3. I check these 3 blogs every morning and evening to see if anything new has been updated.
If you have other questions...let me know.
Make sure you check the blogs and the sites you logged your saver cards to before you head to the stores...Happy savings!
