savings with coupons?
Okay, so I hear all the time about people that save lots and lots of money with on-line coupons etc. i saw a woman the other day at the market with a shopping cart full and after turning in her coupons her bill came to $30. I am spending at least $700 a month on groceries and household supplies for a family of four? Any advice. BTW-- I already use the weekly coupons in the paper.

Okay, I'm a coupon queen. The way you are able to save amazing amounts of money is by stacking coupons and sales. Stacking coupons means using store coupons, saver's cards, and manufacturer coupons in conjuction with sales. It's not an easy task. My best shopping trip ever was 372 worth of groceries for $45. My best shopping trip ever for non food items was to Walgreen's because I also use the rebates there. I bought $150 in cleaning, personal care, and medicines and they paid me $72.00! I know it sounds hard to believe but it really is a science that takes hours on end to perfect. It's a hobby that saves you money! The key is to actually put the money that you save in an interest bearing account! Be a polite coupon shopper. Don't take everything off of the shelf and also if people are behind you with a few items, let them go ahead. The funniest trip I ever had to the store was when a man behind me was very rude and told me he would just give me the money for whatever my coupons would save me because I was taking to long. I smiled when 326 came off of my bill. He shut his mouth then! Also, one more thing do not forget double and triple coupons. Triple coupons come around about once or twice a year but most stores double coupons constantly up to a certain face value. I'll put a link to a website that has lots of information but I am not advertising them! www.thecouponclippers.comSource(s): I'm a professional coupon shopper.

You really have to do some work in order to save with coupons. There websites that you can go to and print out coupons. If the store has double coupon days, some still do, shop on that day. Watch the store ads. If something is on sale, then purchase that item if you have a coupon. Watch package size and pricing. Most of the time, the larger the container, the less it is per ounce. But to get more for your coupon, if there is no size restriction, purchase the smaller item. Do not impulse buy, only stick to your shopping list. Some stores have "card member" savings. If you get their free membership card, certain items you get a discounted price. The only problem with this, they track your purchases. Name brand products that I like, I have gone to the manufactures website and have left comments on what I think of their products. A lot of them appreciate feedback, and mail you coupons. I got like $10 off an ice cream manufactures line!

I use coupons whenever I can but the real trick is to use the coupons when it is also on sale. Then you save even more. There are some good coupon sites to print from as well, use all you can find and save,save,save. :)

Before you make any purchase, you can do a search for deals and coupons for the product you are interested in.
The best place to start your search is SearchAllDeals.com. It is the one place to search all popular online bargain sites all at once. This saves from jumping from one bargain site to another.
Hope this is useful.... Happy clipping!

Go to the product's website. They usually have coupons available.
