Tonight is another new episode of TLC Extreme Couponing.
It is something that either makes you excited about saving or makes you cringe.
Some folks describe this show like a train wreck, being something that is SO extreme you watch because it is hard to turn away.
But take into account that no one would watch if I or most of the other coupon users were on the show, we are not EXTREME and would not get ratings like this. In fact most of the coupon blogging world is talking about it on their blogs in one way or another.
What I want to share with you is that you can save thousands of dollars if you use coupons too, but you don't have to go to the EXTREME like they do on the show.
If you are just starting out Go HERE to learn about coupons.
But the basics are this:
Watch the sales each week, when an item goes on sale pair it with a coupon to get the best deal.
Stores that double and triple coupons make those deals even better!
Some stores let you stack a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon together for one item
Find out what your store's coupon policies are
When you get a good deal stock up, because they won't go on sale like that again for several months.
Buy fruits and vegetables that are in season, grow your own and freeze or can
CellFire will let you load coupons directly to your stores value card
Coupons.com has tons of PRINTABLE coupons to help you get the best deal
You can preview what coupons will come out in the Sunday's paper inserts HERE
There are plenty of ways to save and you don't have to become a Crazy Coupon Lady to do it.
Find a local blog in your area that posts deals each week for the stores you shop at and plan your trips around the deals. Soon you will have a small stockpile of your own!
If you don't know just ask! If I can help you I will!
