It's Sunday morning and that means today's newspaper will be fat with retailer ads and coupons. Now before you run out and buy that new HDTV that we both know is going to be on sale today, take a minute and sort out the grocery coupons from the fray. Pull out your trusty scissors and start clipping coupons for the items that you will actually use. Cut them out, put them in an envelope and use the envelope for your shopping list! That way, the coupons are handy and ready to go when you're in the grocery store.
Speaking coupons we've all read or heard stories of folks who get a ridiculous amount of groceries for little or nothing. While I'd love to be able to do that, I don't think I have the patience required to go to multiple grocery stores to take advantage of those that double store coupons. I mean it's bad enough to stand in the 20 items or less line behind someone who thoughtlessly brought 30 because the line was shorter. However, if you want to become a coupon master, there are numerous sites that let you get a grasp on your grocery budget and stretch every last penny. A few worth mentioning are: smartsource.com, coupon.com, couponmom.com, grocerysavingstips.com, couponing.about.com. I'll compile a list and publish it later. Now get clipping!
