Ivy , Watch for my coupon rounds, I post them almost daily with the latest coupons. I find a wide variety of coupons — you would probably find a few you can use. You can always try emailing the manufacturers of the products you do use to see if they will send you coupons. June 23, at pm.

I get confused about which coupons I can use with all the varieties of one product. June 20, at pm. I too am just starting out with using coupons. Ive used them several times, but never when doing anything other than fast food and cigarettes yes I know, nasty habbit.

I did read that you can use a coupon on products on sale, I was wondering if that includes cigarettes? Ive never been the one to actually try to buy them, it has been my husband, but hes tried twice now, and has been told both times that they are not allowed to do that anymore, but wont say why or who tells them that. I have been couponing for about 2 months now, but one thing still confuses me every time!

This one confuses me every single time! I loved your artical so much, i shared it on my blog!!!! I am so new to couponing, I clipped my first coupon this last Wednesday, and bought my first 10 papers today!! June 19, at am. I was just wondering if anyone knew what this means and what in the world are the limitations to such a coupon?

I know the barcode is pretty much the rules to the coupon but why would they do that? Thanks Mica. Mica , You always go by the wording on the coupon — not the barcode. It is directed to the retailer to prevent them from submitting for double the coupon value. June 16, at pm. June 16, at am. I am in love with the idea of how much money can be saved on grocery shopping by couponing. Can anyone help me? Jess , Printable coupons are very popular, also I like free homemailers and coupons you find in the store like blinkies and peelies.

June 15, at pm. Love this site. The matchups are a great resource. I LOVE this website. Reading this helped, my mom discouraged me from getting to involved with couponing, because none of the stores where i live double coupons. So thats why i just spent maybe, 15 minutes thinking and clipping coupons from my sunday paper.

I know. Just look for the higher value coupons and you will still get great savings. June 8, at pm. Thank you so much for this site first of all: just wanna let yall know that I started collecting my coupons a couple of weeks ago and today finally got the supplies and started my binder. But my husband and I will be driving to Bryan Texas to shop at the Kroger there. How many shopping trips do u normally make in a month? And even if we can only go to Kroger once a month and do our other shopping at Walmart or HEB that will be fine I suppose.

Again thanks for all of the great tips and advice. I am just getting started on couponing. We live in a small town with not many coupons in our paper. Where do I get the coupons from? If you have any tips for me, that would be great. Stephanie , I would stick with printable coupons and homemailers. June 8, at am. June 2, at pm. Just a little confused on how to go about starting!! June 4, at pm. Andi , That is a great question! I find sales and look for the matching coupons typically. I am very new to couponing. I have found the same coupons for the same products over and over again.

My Sunday paper just had the circulars for the stores in it. Is there a website that I can go to and get coupons for things I use like Bounty and Scott, Kelloggs, Kraft ect and not have to download a toolbar? I know on some you have to download there printing program that is fine just not the toolbar. OBTW thankyou so much for this post.

Thankyou for cluing me in and thanks for the help in advance. Erin , Sorry about no coupons in your paper, there were no coupons on Memorial day weekend. Most printable coupon sites will require you to download a coupon printer because that is how they limit you to printing coupons per computer. May 31, at pm. May 30, at pm. Thanks so much for intro info!! Used coupons sporadically before but was inspired to actively look for them after watching Whackos-R-Us.

Professional Couponing Course Information Request #couponing #couponclass #extremecouponing

I cant believe they are finding that many coupons. Are they downloading them and printing them out. I thought there were limits on how many you could print at a time an on a certain computer. Please let me know how they are doing this. To get multiple insert coupons is pretty easy though — dumpster diving, clipping services, and asking friends are a way to get multiples fast.

June 14, at pm. Stephanie , Hi Karen-Stephanie. Can I print 5 coupons? Lee , You can only use 1 of each eCoupon but most printable coupons can be printed twice most stores will allow you to use as many as you have.

When I go to a website, it directs me somewhere else then somewhere else. Finding coupons is not that easy. Please help! Steffanie Martinez , go to coupons. I live in VA and a lot of stores double coupons here but I have noticed that their prices are wayyy up then regular stores!

Brooke Nail , Yes, the store will take as many coupons as you have as long as they are used properly one per purchase, no expireds, etc.

Until I got in line and some cashier not mine was talking about those "crazy coupon ladies"…so I was looking at my cashier and she was laughing at the story that other cashier was telling! I was so annoyed I didn't check her scanning and she missed two of my coupons because she was too busy laughing at me trying to save money. Well I will laugh at her when she pays full price for anything!!!

JennyCakes , wow! I love extreme couponing but it is def giving couponers a bad look! I buy what I need and thats it! Im not hoarding my house with rolls of TP thats just insane! May 19, at am. Lee , Sometimes it is a good deal, sometimes not. Hi Stephanie, Let me first say thank for sharing your knowledge to help others.

It is truly appreciated. As a brand-newbie, I am still trying to wrap my head around how to get the most savings out of a single coupon; especially after reading the rule — You may not use two coupons on one item. For example, I would like to try the Downy liquid fabric softener. I understand that I can wait until I find it on sale in the store and possibly combine it with a store coupon but it seems that I only have a savings benefit on a single bottle. How are people purchasing ten and twenty bottles of detergent with just two coupons?

Lee , Well, they buy 10 or 20 because they have 10 or 20 coupons. Not all coupons limit you to 4 per transaction. May 17, at pm. Question here in my city.

It may be a stupid question but I am still learning and I am afraid to make a mistake.

Is so confusing!!! I need to get this because I have 3 coupons like this and I do not want to miss the deals for this week. May 9, at pm. First I want to say thank you for the insightful website. I am new to this and eager to learn all I can. My question may sound stupid but I am new to this so here goes. May 11, at pm. Missy , No, you can only apply 1 coupon to each item. May 7, at am. Stephanie, I love your site and have started clipping coupons this week. Here is my question. I buy groceries for a family of seven my son is unemployed so I help them with food The largest part of my grocery list includes meat and fresh produce.

I have a lot of coupons that state this exactly thing. Is so confusing for me because I am just starting. ALso do you recommend me to wait a few weeks until i have a pile of coupons or to go to the store and use all the coupons that i currently have? Thank you for your help. Mar , It depends on what the coupon says I usually ignore the picture. If it gives you a list of which ones you can buy then stick to those. I recommend you use your coupons immediately BUT only use them on sale items or products you would already be buying.

Natalie , You add new coupons to it weekly and pull out the expired ones every so often. Letting coupons expire is okay, if I used every coupon I clipped, I would go broke! April 13, at am.

Thanks, Deb. March 19, at pm. I think couponing is awesome, BUT, as a former cashier a drug store I have to say that it does sometimes keep employees from giving equal service to other customers.

However, today I did what this blog said and used two toothpaste coupons on two toothpastes at wal-greens and they only validated one. The manager told me I could only use one coupon for toothpaste for the whole purchase. I was totally bummed. What do I do in this situation? Did I do this right? Vanessa , You should have been able to use both.

March 2, at am. I am not new to using coupons but I certainly had no idea that I could be saving even more! Anyway, my question is where do you get all these great coupons?

Every little bit that can be saved certainly helps! Tiffany , I have occasionally had internet printables beep at Walmart, but typically they scan fine. LOVE this blog! I am new to couponing and your information has helped me a TON! Keep it up! LOVE the Target coupon portion! Now for my question s.

Migadeen , I have a post coming up soon that talks about stockpiling, but basically you buy a lot of the things you know you will use when they are at their lowest price.

This is a wonderful site! January 20, at pm. Coleen , No. You can only use 1 coupon per item, even if that coupon also attaches to another item. One of our local grocery stores, SuperS, refused to honor computer generated coupons.

The checker said that the home office set the policy. Any other ideas? Lynne , Lynne, ask to see a written copy of the coupon policy next time. They should be able to provide one if this is indeed their policy. January 17, at pm. Found this site and added it to my favorites. You did great saving on your new dryer! January 17, at am.

Moarjorie , Husbands seem to be the hardest to convince! I suggest starting with all the free sources for coupons first if your husband is skeptical of buying a newspaper.

My husband was skeptical at first, but decided it was worth supporting for all the savings. By the 2nd week of watching the bank account grow instead of shrink, he was sold! Perhaps you could challenge your husband to a time period challenge! If you do and you will you get supported on your multiple paper subscriptions and splurge on an item you have been wanting — or better yet to me eat out that night!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! September 14, at pm. Julie , Hi Julie. I completely understand your frustrations. There are a couple things to watch — try to branch out and try new things and not be brand loyal to too many items.

I hope this helps you and keep trying! Ok so I have a question. If I have a coupon for buy 6 yoplait get. Can I use 6? June 5, at pm. Heather , No, you can only use 1 coupon per item — and that coupon applies to all 6 items. The store doubled it and I got the toothpaste free.. April 21, at pm. Margie , Margie. You did it just right! You always want to maximize your savings the best you can, and since you got the toothpaste for free, you did just that.

Then you wont have to purchase toothpaste again for a long time, or you can donate it out, whichever you want. My philosophy is, if you can get it for free, why only get 1,2,or3. Why not get 30, 50, or I can always store products or donate them. Hope this helps. Would I need a coupon for every 3 purchased. I am new to couponing and have a question for all you professionals!

I am really unclear on this. Can I use both coupons for the deoderant and the bodywash? May 18, at am. March 25, at pm. After recent months I have no choice but to find ways to save. I appreciate the post because all of this can sound like a foreign language to me. March 24, at pm. HI Great posts! I too am learnign this coupon game.

Yes, game. My family is all involved trying to beat each other on bargains. I have been diligent in trying to get coupons on line, in stores, from newspapers and do not come near to this kind of savings. Kate , It takes time and practice! Once you get a nice collection of coupons and get the hang of finding the best deals, you will start to see consistent high savings! Well, if you have a lot of coupons.. How do you keep up with the favorite stores, their sales, and the coupon exp.

Kate , It is okay to let coupons expire. February 27, at am. I am really nervous about my first shopping trip with coupons today. I have printed many coupons and looked at the sales ads and think I am just going to venture to Krogers first and then read more tips today before I do more shopping and go to Walmart.

My big questions is reading how everyone saves at CVS and Walgreens. I am curious how that happens and what all it entails.

I have never thought of shopping really there becuase they seem so much higher than other places, but it seems that is where you get really good deals. Do you go there and get their store ads or is there a place you can get them online before you venture out? I am still learning the lingo, but I do have the list of abbreviations handy and catching on.

I just wish I would have done this much sooner, but better now than never right?
