Where do you get your coupons?

So where do I get coupons?

EVERYWHERE! Hehe well, kind of. Here is where I get most of mine from:

Sunday paper GET ONE! I currently do not have a subscription, but as soon as I find a great deal on one, I will jump on it (And of course I will share it with you). Right now I buy 4 papers a week from my local mini mart, but if you are just starting out, 1 seems to work just fine. If you have lots of kiddos or you live far from grocery stores, you might want to pick up a couple extra. The best resource is to ask your friends, family, coworkers, basically anyone who doesn’t use their inserts to hand them over to you. Usually we get 2 inserts per week, RedPlum, and SmartSource. Every month or so we get a Proctor & Gamble insert and sometimes extra Red Plums or SmartSources also.  At one point I was getting 4 sets of inserts JUST FROM MY FRIENDS and I didn’t even have to buy any.

Internet Printables Most coupon blogs will provide certain links for good deals, but you could always browse sites like these: coupons.com, redplum.com,smartsource.com. Some coupons are the same as you will find in inserts, but they are usually pretty different.  These are worthless without a computer, good printer, and ink of course. I recommend something fast and cheap that has a black and white only option. You can usually print 2 coupons per computer, so if you have access to more than one computer-YOU LUCKY DOG!

There are also blinkies, tearpads, catalinas, peelies, and random store coupon books, but we will learn more about those in the future. For now, let’s concentrate on the Sunday paper and Internet printables.

Next I will explain how to organize your coupons!!
