I’m just starting to get into it this year.  I usually save at least 60% on my shopping.  The thing you have to think about is shopping based on the sales not on a weekly grocery list like we are used to.  I use this site to look at the weekly sales and coupon matchups.

I get coupons from the Sunday paper and online.  You can go to Target (they take manufacturers coupon and store coupon too) but the prices aren’t as cheap there usually.

I try when I have the time. My advice is to find a system that works for you. I carry a little coupon wallet in my purse with the coupons that I use. Others put all the ads into a binder and only pull out the ones as they need them. I think this works best for people who do the drugstore thing, buying what’s on sale because you can sometimes actually make money back or get a credit for a future purchase.

I also say start with one or two stores, maybe a grocery store and a drugstore, it is much less overwhelming. Pick your stores, then google something like “target weekly matchup 3/20” and you’ll find blogs where they match the sales recent coupons.

I big time couponers that come to our store always have great big folders full of coupons.  You have to read them carefully and always check the dates.  The internet is a great place to get them and out of the paper.  Rite Aid where I work always is discounting stuff down to get rid of stuff and that is great way of getting stuff for cheap.  Also they give you coupons on the reicepts that you can use toward everything.  The Couponers also seem to come in on Sunday nights when they can get the most product.

I want to start couponing, too.  I use Groupon, but that’s not really for couponing groceries or anything.  If you check websites, they often list coupons.  I also sign up for emails from EVERY store I shop at, and I even get emails from our local grocery store that lists the weekly sale items.  It’s helpful.

@SoontobeMrsA: That show is INTENSE.  Did you see the one where the woman maxed out the cash register’s ability to run products?  It took them like 4 hours to check out!

i discovered complete savings.  when i was purchasing tickets for the NKOTBSB concert, an ad popped up saying i could get $20 back.  it was $12 to joing (first month free), but with the $20 i got back, i still saved $8.  i was going to discontinue my membership until i saw i can get $5 movie tickets (and where I live, they are $11 minimum!).  Then i recently discovered there are TONS of gift cards I can get for $20 with a $25 value (saves 20%).  I am big on not spending money on “sales” unless i was ALREADY planning to spend the money.  so i was not sure about the gift cards until i saw they had CVS pharmacy.  I pay $80 a month in prescriptions, and now I got $100 of gift for $80, it was great!  they also had Starbucks, which Fiance goes to at least 5 times a week!!  plus tons more, but those were the two most useful for me.

there are also grocery and restaurant coupons and just tons of stuff that i am  not even thinking of.  and seriously, with the CVS gift cards alone, I am getting back more than the $12 i spend on membership.

here is the site:
