Advice For Using Coupons Effectively

I've been reading a lot about coupon clipping and stacking coupons. Does anyone in the Pittsburgh North (Cranberry Twp/Butler PA) know of a good place to start grocery shopping? I just can't seem to figure out how to get all the good deals I hear/read about. Thanks!

First thing: coupons are best accumulated from your Sunday paper. If you don't get it either start making an effort to buy it when you go out Sunday or subscribe to Sunday only delivery.

Second thing: you can go to the websites for the grocery stores in your area and see what is on sale or what coupons they may have. Just print out the ones you think you will use.

Third thing: there are websites that specialize in providing coupons. A few http://absurdlycool.com/, http://www.mysavings.com/ ,http://print.co … 10&zid=xk38, http://www.dealigg.com/coupons.php just to name a few.

Forth thing: some stores have specials for saving money. They include buying bulk of something for a lower price, daily or weekly sale, senior day. Senior day is nice and is supported by Kroger. The first Wednesday of each month you get an extra 10% off everything you buy (before coupons). If you aren't 65 or older get a Kroger card for your mother or father. My parents got 4 cards in the mail and gave me one to use.

Great uses of coupons is best done with great planning. You get wonderful coupons from the sunday papers, you might want to get two or three sunday papers each week, this will allow even more savings and is worth it.

I don't limit my shopping to grocery stores for food, I get great deals from walgreens and cvs also. Plan your week and try to visit each store you want without going out of your way. Walmart usually matches items on sale from other groceries so this is a great way to do it if you live close by and the items are not store brand items.

You can stack a store coupon on top of a manufacturer's coupon and get more discounts. Some stores allow coupons after expiration dates, know the store rules. Good luck.
