Save Money with Coupons

I just have to say, I love couponing. It takes a little more effort than I usually put into grocery shopping, but it saves me SO much money that in the end, it is definitely worth it! But I have a few time saving tips to help you out.

1. www.grocerysmarts.com: I love this website! They do all the work for me. All I need to do is find what deals I want, clip the coupons and head to the store. You'll need a passport to sign in, mine is G84CTW and you are welcome to use it.

2. File Folders: When you pull your coupons out of the Sunday paper, slip all of them into a file folder and write the date on top. Then when it says you need the Pillsbury coupon out of the Super Saver ad from May 1st, you can quickly go to that file, pull out your Super Saver ads and clip the coupons you need.

3. Wal-Mart: This is my favorite "dirty little secret"! Wal-Mart will match most competitors sale prices. So here's how you save the time of jumping store to store. Search www.grocerysmarts.com and find the products you want. Then grab a small pad of sticky notes, write down the name of the product, the store that has it on sale and their sale price. Do that for each of the products you want. Then clip your coupons and take them, along with your sticky notes to Wal-Mart. When you pick up an item from your list, stick the sticky note to it and then when you are checking out, explain to the cashier that you are price matching other stores and what the information on the sticky notes is. The cashiers can then very quickly and easily ring you up and process the price match. Hand them your coupons and enjoy amazing savings!
