How to Coupon

Couponing is a great way to get the products that you need at low prices. If you're struggling to make ends meet, gather as many coupons as you can find -- you'll be pleasantly surprised with your savings. Don't buy something just because you have a coupon for it. You'll end up wasting money in the long run.

Step 1

Get the Sunday paper and cut out every coupon that you think you may need. Weekend newspapers are often jam-packed with advertisements and coupons. Take coupons from the "blinkie" machines in the aisles at the grocery store as well.

Step 2

Print your own coupons online. There are several couponing websites that you can try. You can also browse company websites for coupons and special offers.

Step 3

Make a coupon binder and carry it with you whenever you go grocery shopping. Make a list of all the items that you have coupons for and bring it to the store as well. Most coupons have an expiration date, so it's important to remember to use them promptly.

Step 4

Use store coupons with manufacturer coupons to get even bigger discounts on the same item. Keep a lookout for stores that promote double or triple coupon events as well. You'll be able to get many items for deep discounts by taking advantage of these events.
