Seriously, how is that even possible?! I was getting a big FAIL in coupon cutting. I used to clip coupons, but I usually ended up throwing them away.
While I don't even understand how the people on this show are able to combine SO MANY coupons in one order... it does prove how lucrative clipping coupons can be.
Recently, I started really getting into the whole coupon clipping thing, in order to save some money on our grocery bill. I read the grocery store/Target ads and see what the weekly specials are. Then, I go through all the clipped coupons to see what kinda stuff I can score for cheap (or free!).
For instance, I had a coupon for $.75 off Crest toothpaste. I saw my local grocery store was selling them - 2 for $3. My grocery store doubles coupons under $1. $1.50 - ($.75 x 2) = BOOM. Free toothpaste.
I've been doing pretty well lately. I got 2 things of Dove deodorant for $.45 a piece. I bought organic milk chugs for $.25 a piece. Tuna salad kits for $.50. The list goes on.
One way I'm able to get some pretty valuable coupons is through the use of coupons.com and redplum.com. If you install the coupon printer, you can print out some legitimate coupons that'll save you a ton. Make sure your grocery store takes them though - some places won't take anything that is printed off the internet. Hasn't been a problem for me at my store or Target.
The other way I'm staying on top of the deals is this sweet website: Hip2Save
It's run by a deal loving mom - and she always has hints on the best places to score stuff for free, including the stores where your coupons can go far, or free giveaways online. She updates multiple times a day, so I tend to read it whenever I get the chance! Definitely check it out.
Do you guys clip coupons? My co-worker says clipping coupons is only for people over the age of 40. Disagree! I love saving money.
