Steal tried-and-true coupon tricks from real women
“I go through the Sunday newspapers and cut out any coupons I think I might use, then I fill them in an expanding coupon organizer
that fits in my purse. Before I go shopping, I go through the coupons and pull the ones I need and clip them to my grocery
―Sandi Chmela, Algonquin, Ill.
“I write down names of manufacturers at the grocery store, look them up on the Internet at home and contact them for coupons.
Sometimes they send me free or high-value coupons, which really helps me save money.”
―Jennifer Bubolz-Miller, Sussex, Wis.
“My mom and I have a little coupon ‘club.’ We both buy several newspapers with the best coupons. Then we trade ones that we
don’t use. That way, we are both getting every cent out of each newspaper and save extra at the stores. We then always call
to compare how much we save on our grocery trips!”
―Julie Valora, Milesburg Penn.
“Most grocery stores will price-match any competitor’s prices. I take all the ads with me to my favorite store and have them
match any lower price. There are also a lot of Web sites that have local coupons you can print. I like buddyslot.com.”
―Tiffany Smallwood, 32, Greenville, S.C.
“Mygrocerydeals.com has a ton of good coupons and also allows you to search local stores for sales and compare prices on sale items at different
retailers. It combines all the circulars into one!”
―Amanda Sisson, Charleston, S.C.
