Do you have any drugstores near you?  Even though this is for the South, she posts all the matchups for CVS, Walgreens, and RiteAid which are pretty much the same across the country.

Southern Savers

The Krazy Coupon Lady has a lot of matchups for grocery stores, not sure about the ones you go to though.

Sometimes you just have to wait for a sale on things that you use and buy a good portion of it then.  Most things go on sale every 6-8 weeks though so you really don’t need stockpiles that take up entire rooms.

You can also always write a letter telling them that you love their product and how it’s working for you and ask if there are coupons. Many times they’ll send you some!

I feel you though. We eat mainly lean meats and veggies…. It’s great that I can get cheap cereal… we don’t eat it. lol

I use target.com (coupons link all the way at the bottom), sign up for every email known to mankind with a secondary email I use, like things on facebook to print coupons, and use couponmom.com and couponsuzy.com. Those 2 websites have further links for printables.

What I do is:

  • print any coupon I may use in the time that it says it expires.
  • Then, I organize them in a little thingie I have by department.
  • I also write a list of coupons I have, and if it’s specified by store. If it says manufacturer coupon, I’ll check target to see if they have a coupon for the same item.

If I see a target coupopn I could use (let’s say for ALL detergant), I’ll google search “ALL detergent manufacturer’s coupon”. Target lets you use one manu and one target coupon per item! Couple that with a sale, and voila.

I additionally scope online weekly ads – target, walmart, stop and shop. I then go down my list of coupons that I already have, check sales, and buy. I tend to buy in advance.

  • Example, if I have a $2 off charmin coupon, and target is offering $1 off, and it’s on sale, I’ll buy as many as I have coupons for and put them away for later. 

I hope that wasn’t too confusing – haha! Oy. I’ll include a pic of my typical list just because I’m super bored.

@Tunacupcakes: I have also found (I have a mac) that I can only typically print coupons from safari or firefox. chrome never works!

Do you have an iphone or ipod touch? I have some great couponing apps – Jo-Anns app has coupons, GeoQpons is fantastic for all sorts of stores, and ShopSavvy will scan a barcode and give you prices of all stores in the area that carry it.

@Tunacupcakes: You need to make sure that your default printer is a real printer and not a PDF printer, I had that problem when I first hooked up my laptop.

Try Money Saving Mom.  It’s great!  There are coupons for some natural/organic things, but I’ve found that most of the food stuffs we buy do not have coupons.

One trick I learned is to go to GiftCardGranny and set up an alert for the stores that I go to and then I’ll get alerts for gift cards.  Then you can buy them at discounted rates.  Saves a little $ here and there for stores I am shopping at normally.

Also, I mostly use coupons/the drugstore game for things like toilet paper, toothbrushes, floss, etc.  I haven’t bought floss or toothbrushes for ages, and Fiance and I have a stock to last us for years!

I was really curious to read this thread. because I’m also looking for ways to reduce expenses and have considered couponing. I’m from Canada which doesn’t have as good couponing as the US. But i’m trying to figure out ways in general to save money. For instance, using coupons & groupons for places and products we already use. Also try to watch sales. And I have a Scene Visa card, which allows us to have many free movie nights.
