Advice For A Newbie In The World Of Coupons...???

So as I'm sure you all know, I have started making small changes to the way I shop for the New Year. One of the things I had done was bookmarked all the top promo code sites, that update often and hold the most valid codes for my online purchases. Starting Sunday, I will try and wrap my brain into in-store couponing and getting stuff together.


I broke out my according style folder that was gifted to me by one of the best coupons I know. Now I just have to start my coupon collection back up and remember to actually buy the paper every week as well as dedicate time weekly, to printing out coupons I find across the web. I have swore for the past three years that I was going to learn to be a smart shopper. I have no idea why matching and pairing up coupons with sales confuses me so much, but I'm really going to try and finally give it my all.

I know there are some fabulous blogs and websites out that will take a lot of the guess work out of my shopping trips for me. Do you have a favorite savings blog? I would love to know where you turn or even more about your own savings site. I have a few friends with fabulous sites but their main focus is geared at one particular store, that I am unable to frequent often.

I know a lot of you readers are some savvy shoppers, so do you have any advice for a newbie like myself? Particularly advice that won't make my head spin.... ;-)

I like these sites

I let the sites that match up the coupons to what is on sale do their magic and then I see what I have to match with sales.

If you have Publix, only buy what they have for BOGO with coupons, they are expensive.

See what your store's policy is for doubling coupons and if they take other store's coupons.

Start small, it can get over-whelming quickly.

What stores do you have in your area? That will help us give you specific assistance.

I am like you. I struggle with matching the coupons to all the ads. I don't think it is supposed to be that hard. Just some weeks I feel overwhelmed.
