Be a Better Couponer Part 2 – Getting Coupons!


Who is ready to use coupons more efficiently and save more on groceries this year?

Maybe you’ve tried and thrown up your hands in surrender and said “This is just not for me” and you’re still playing full price for groceries.

I’m here to tell you, you don’t have too!

Maybe you think couponing is a lot of work.

That’s the excuse most people use when it comes to using coupons.   It’s too much work.  But to me, work = pay.  So let’s look at how much coupons “pay” you.  I cut our monthly budget $300-$400 a month when I started so I basically get paid $300-$400 a month to coupon.  Sounds to me like the “work” is worth it!

So, if your new years resolution is to be a better couponer, after you have your coupon organization system worked out, next you need to GET COUPONS.

A successful couponer is the one that has the MOST coupons available to him/her.  So to be a better couponer, you have to have coupons coming at you from every direction!!

But don’t forget to check out part 1 first – organizing your coupons!

Here’s all the places you should be getting coupons from:

    • Shopmium

    • Winn-Dixie ecoupons
      coupons you load to your store loyalty card to receive a discount at the time of purchase
      cannot be stacked with manufacturer coupons
      do not double
      one per purchase
    • Publix ecoupons
      add the coupons you want to your account.  enter your account number (phone number) at the register to receive a discount at time of purchase.
      can NOT be used with your regular coupons.  If you have a Publix ecoupon for $1 off Cheerios, when you enter your phone number at the register it will deduct the $1 – the register will not take a coupon for $1 off Cheeries after e-coupon has been applied.  (The reverse is also true, if you give the paper coupon first the ecoupon will not deduct)
      can not be doubled
      one per purchase
