A question I commonly get is, “Where do you get all of your coupons?” I don’t have one straight answer for this question, so I thought I’d take some time to break down the answer to that question.
- The paper: Perhaps, it’s old-school, in this day of “Extreme Couponing.” But I do clip coupons from the weekend paper when I am able. If you ever debate on buying a paper or not, here’s a great site that gives you a coupon preview for the week!
- In stores and on stores’ web pages: The Whole Deal can be found in the checkout line at Whole Foods and also online. I often stack these coupons with manufacturers coupons that I have! This can also be done at Target as well by stacking a Target coupon with a manufacturer’s coupon. And Target also offers Target mobile coupons. Also some natural grocery stores in my area have coupon books at check out from time to time. And of course, there are those machines on the grocery aisles that dispense coupons.
- Manufacturer’s websites: For example, Organic Valley has tons of coupons you can print straight off their site specifically for their products. Love a product? Check out the brand’s website!
- Coupon sites devoted to manufacturers’ coupons: Mambo Sprouts, Red Plum, Coupons.com.
- Facebook: Tons of brands post coupons on Facebook! I try to post these on my Facebook page when I can. I have found that the coupons found on Facebook are much more high dollar than those found elsewhere.
- Load coupons on your shoppers card: I rarely do this, but I have friends who save a lot with this method! A popular site for this is Cell Fire.
As I’ve said before, I don’t use coupons nearly as much as I used to for two reasons: 1. I have less time now with a toddler, and 2. I buy much more organic and whole foods, which means I buy less processed foods. Still, I am able to use coupons somewhat.
What is your primary coupon source?
