Coupons: The closest you will get to printing money!

I am huge on coupons, it's how my family not only survives but does it in style, with good nutritious foods. It's the closest you will ever get to legally print money!!

There are many different kinds of ways to coupon. I mainly use these five different kinds:

1. Clipping!
The Sunday paper has some of the best coupons that I can find, makes the paper pay for themselves and saves you a ton!

All You Magazine 
(not only do you get to clip the coupons out of the actual  monthly magazine, you can print them off the web site as well)

2. Printing coupons from coupon web sights (Click the site to link to them)
Cool Savings
Common Kindness (this is great for whole foods)
Hopster
Grocery Coupon Cart
Inbox Dollars

Smart Source
Cellfire (this is both a printer and a reward card loader)
Mommy Saves Big
Quality Health

Some Stores have their own coupons that you can stack!
Target add it with their smart phone app: Cartwheel
A lot of brands will have coupons on their own websites:
Nature Made
Betty Crocker
3M Post-It
Cheerios: General Mills
Kelloggs

3. Loading coupons onto your reward cards (Click the site to link to them)
Saving Star (they will pay you to shop)
Wallgreens
 
4. Emailing companies, a lot of them will send you both free samples and coupons. These websites have great lists and links of companies that you can email:

Bargain Blessings
Cleverly Simple

5. Making money for coupons!
Inbox Dollars:

How do I get the best out of my coupons?
Make sure you use them before their expiration date. Create a coupon binder or some form of organization for your coupons. It is always better to combine them with an in store sale. Create a form of shopping list that helps you keep track of your coupons and sales. Here is an example of what I have set up:

 Here are some links to blogs I use to match-up my coupons with sales and also have far better tutorials than I could ever give on everything couponing (These sites are how I learned how to coupon so I feel they deserve the credit!)

A Thrifty Mom
Coupon Divas
Passion for Savings
