So we are trying to cut down our grocery bills and while I won’t be an extreme couponer anytime soon, I would like to try and use them some. Does anyone have a good (free!) site to get coupons for food and staple items? Thanks so much for your tips too!

Most stores and manufacturers offer coupons on their websites.
Also do a search here on WeddingBee. There have been previous posts here that gave sources.

There are great coupons at allyou.com, coupons.com, couponsuzy.com.
Also, check manufacturer websites for products you use often. I know from recent searches that archway cookies and seventh generation have coupons posted on their websites.
Google coupon blogs to find more hints for finding coupons for specific products. Good luck!

Also, the site couponmom links the weekly sales at the major stores in your area with the weekly coupons that come out, so you can get the most bang for your buck. It’s free too.

I thought about this too! I’ve watched the TLC show, and thought it wasn’t feasible for me. BUT, last night I took my little envelope of 2 weeks worth of ad coupons to a Roundy’s brand store on double coupon day and spent $9.70 and saved $39! I tried using those websites to piece it all together, but I found it was pretty easy to just go check the things I had the coupons for and look for a sale or closeout that would qualify. Plus, I got things that I wanted, but did go out in search of “I need to get this to be able to make a meal”. I think there has to be coupon shopping, and then grocery shopping lol.

One thing I’ve been doing is price matching at Walmart. They will even price match produce and while their produce isn’t spectacular it’s a lot better than the serious bargain stores. In my area it’s usually Super A Foods, Valu+, and the Mexican grocery–they have really low prices for produce but their stuff is not good, just take the add to Walmart and they’ll match it as long as you buy the same thing.
I got a dollar off eggs, a dollar per pound off of apples, and .70 cents a pound off of bananas today that way. Also works with meat products and anything that is listed with a specific price in a weekly ad (must get the same size!)
Also, the dollar store can definitely be your friend, they have some things there that are worth it if you don’t have a ton of time to coupon. For example in my area Campbell’s Condensed soup is at least $1.50 , Walmart/Target sometimes has it for as little as 1.25 but even with coupons it’s hard to get them for less than a dollar each. The dollar store always has them on the shelf for $.99
