I haven't talked abou coupoms lately. My daughter and I attended a seminar on extreme couponimg. I am not a fan of real extreme couponing as in the tv show because I think it boarders on hoarding and hoRding things we don't need or need to hoard. I think the operative word is extreme. No one needs 93 bottles of hot sauce or a closet full of soda pop. LOL. In reality most stores will not let you buy that much. I do use coupons for the things I normally,buy anyway. And, yes you can find coupons for things that are not gadgets or junk , ready made food. I get ice cream, yogurt, pasta, toothpaste, and other real food coupons all the time.
I get one Sunday paper at the dollar store. You can get ot on Saturday or all week lomg as long as they have stock. My friend brings me the inserts from her paper. Once a month I get on coupons.com and download the coupons that I seriously might use. You are allowed to download two coupons per item. The manufacturers limit the amount of coupons printed. Doing it close to the forst of the month is to your advantage, the large ones go fast. I have a coupon binder and file the printed coupons.
There are coupon matching sites on the Internet that match local store sales with coupoms. I file my inserts in file folders by month. Wrote the date of the insert on the front. It's an easy match up to pull the coupon when they are in chronological order.
I save an average of six dollars a week. That calculates to over three hundred a month.
Our lights were out and I lost most of the rest of this post.
