I use couponmom.com and smartsource.com

Pay attention to the stores that double coupons, as well, and you can often get stuff for free! For instance, if Wheat Thins are on sale for 2/$3 and you have a coupon for 75 cents that doubles, then they are FREE! 🙂 Happy hunting!

Not for groceries, but groupon.com and restaurant.com both are wonderful ways to be able to go out for cheap. In regards to groceries I make sure to buy store brand whenever possible. Also, I try to make a game of shopping at Safeway or any store that tells you the precentage that you save. My goal is to save 30% each trip. It’s not always possible, but it is fun to try. Also, I like to follow Debt-Proof living through creators.com/advice.html. Her column has great suggestions.

what do you mean by double coupons?  Can the cashier scan them twice?  I’ve never heard of this.  Please explain!

@amariem25: double coupons is when the value of the coupon can be doubled. like if a coupon is worth 50 cents then it will then be worth $1. so depending on the store, sometimes they double or triple coupons on certain days.

This is great. I definitely need to start using coupons. The last time we went shopping I was so surprised at how much things had gone up.

@caszos: I like SouthernSavers too.  I think it only works in the South though (obviously according to the name lol).  I haven’t found many good sites to print coupons though, the best ones I find are in the paper.

The best thing I’ve realized from that site is that you need to find a store that reduces the price of items in half for buy one get ones (if it’s buy one get one free for a $2 item, the price on each is reduced to $1 so you only need to buy one) and then combine that with a coupon.  The biggest savings come from the buy one get one free savings.

I don’t have one for groceries, but for random items I also like to use groupon.com (mentioned earlier) and occasionally I can find good deals on slickdeals.com <– Got fiances stainless steel wedding band here for $5!

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy:  Yea the best deals come from the B1G1 free deals because you can use two coupons (one for each product).  I know Publix and WinnDixie do a lot of these sales and thats normally where we shop.  I am surprised though at some of the sales that WalMart and Target actually have.  They already have low prices and when they put something on sale and you have a coupon it is a great deal!

@caszos: Does Target take competitors coupons?  Our local Publix takes competitors coupons but it just stopped doubling those coupons.
