Now that you have your coupon organizer ready, it’s time to add coupons to it. Coupons can be found in various places. Here’s the most common places you’ll find them:
Attached to products you purchased or in the products box
Receipt Print Out
Coupon Clipping Services (They cut the coupons and you buy them so you don’t have to pick up a pair of scissors).
The Sunday paper is one of the best places to find coupons. Each week they have coupon inserts filled with coupons. Some weekends won’t have inserts due to holidays. I post a weekly preview on my blog of what to expect in the Sunday Paper each week so you know what to expect. I suggest you subscribe to your local paper to get the best rates on a newspaper. Click this Discounted Newspaper Subscription link to check out discounted rates.
Printable coupons are a huge part of couponing these days. More and more companies have decided to release printable coupons. Printable coupons have a limit on how many coupons can be printed. Most printable coupons can be printed twice per computer. I have compiled a page on my blog with all the printable coupon sources so you can find them in one place. I do highlight HOT printable coupons on my blog daily. This is why it’s so important that you visit my blog frequently or subscribe to my feed and check it often. Most of the coupons I highlight will go very fast and need to be printed ASAP. Check out my Coupons page and start printing!
Step 2 of this series gives you a visual of Different Types of Coupon that you’ll find in the grocery stores, attached to products and on receipts.
Magazines have various coupon in them. They’re usually good coupons but are only really worth it if you read the magazine. Subscriptions can be pricey and the value of the coupons may not cover the cost to make it worth your subscription. Once magazine that I highly recommend you subscribe to is All You Magazine. It’s full of coupons every month and has frugal tips and recipes in it. If you love magazines and are looking for a great deal on subscriptions, check out DiscountMags for a great deal.
I post mailed coupons on my blog so you can request them. It’s not as common anymore for a company to release a coupon booklet via the mail but they do still appear. This is why it’s so important that you visit my blog frequently or subscribe to my feed and check it often. Another way coupons come in the mail is if you request them on a company website but most of the time they’ll email them to you.
Coupon Clipping Services are a great way to get coupons if your stocking up on a HOT deal or if you would prefer to get only the coupons you need. These companies cut coupons and sell them individually so you can request what you want. The pricing of the coupon is based on the value of the coupon. They usually charge 10% of the coupon value. Check out my favorite Coupon Clipping Services . I love having this service available!
