The receipt I posted is my best trip. I had a lot of coupons and Homeland had tons of sales!
4 STEPS: HOW TO COUPON
- Buy the Sunday Newspaper: Here in Oklahoma - The Oklahoman has the most coupons. How many Newspapers to buy: 1 Newspaper for each person in your house. Purchase an even number, so you may have to buy an additional newspaper. Why even numbers - BOGO deals!
I also print coupons on coupons.com, kelloggsfamilyrewards.com, Pillsbury.com and any other product I am interested in. (Make sure you create a new email address before signing up for freebies or coupons. You don't want to get spam or clutter your personal email)
- Cut & Organize your coupons: I use a binder & baseball card holders. I sort them into sections like food, beauty, medicine, cleaning supplies. http://www.couponing4charity.com/blog/organizing-cutting-coupons-quickly
- Find the Best Deal: Try to find a store that doubles coupons. If you do not live around a store that doubles coupons than find a store that has a good sales ad. Then get the weekly sales ad and match up the items on sale with the coupons you have. Some Ads come out on Sunday (Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Dollar Stores) & some come out on Wednesdays (Most grocery stores: Homeland, Food Pyramid, United, Aldi, etc) I only purchase items on sale and I never use all of the coupons in my binder. Just because you clipped a coupon doesn't mean you have to use it. Unless you need it try to wait for it to go on sale! My go to store is Homeland because they double coupons up to $1. Example: If you use a $1 off coupon at Homeland it will double so you get $2 off. They will only double 1 like coupon. So if you have 2 coupons and they have the same bar code they will only double one of them. It' important to know the stores coupon policy!
