Newspapers– The Sunday paper contains coupon inserts every weekend except for holiday weeks. The 3 most common are SmartSource, Red Plum and Proctor & Gamble. Occasionaly you will see General Mills and Pepsi Co. inserts as well.
Magazines– All You magizine (a monthly publishing) has page after page of valuable coupons. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled when looking through any of your favorite magazines as many of them will contain coupons.
Printable– Websites such as Coupons.com, SmartSource.com, RedPlum.com and CouponNetwork.com are the most popular internet sites for printing great coupons. Most of the time these are higher value than the coupons you will find in the newspaper but, note that most webites allow you to only print 2 copies of each coupon.
Facebook– Oh yes, Facebook is one of my favorite places to score awesome coupons!!! Make sure to “like” the pages your favorite products as many of them will offer high value, even free item coupons! Oh and be sure to “like” frugal 4 four on FaceBook while you’re there!
Product Packaging– Frequently you will see coupons included on or inside of product packages. When shopping be sure to look for select items that have a “peelie” on the box that will save you money today! Also many cereal boxes and boxed items will have a coupon printed inside for savings next time you purchase them.
Mailers– By signing up for free samples and P&G home mailer booklet you can recieved lots of great coupons right in your mailbox! I will post info about the occasional mailer to sign up for!
Mobile Coupons– Sign up for Target’s mobile coupons and you will get great coupons texted right to your phone! Just show your phone to the cashier at check-out… it’s that easy!! Also remember these coupons can be stacked with manufacture coupons!
Contact manufactures– If you have products that you love but can never find coupons for, call or e-mail the company and ask them for coupons. You will be surprised the awesome coupons you’ll recieve.
Coupon Clipping Services– Another resource for collecting coupons is available through purchase from a coupon clipping service. Instead of purchasing multiple papers for only 1 or 2 hot coupons that you want in large quantities you can order those coupons through a coupon clipping service. When you purchase from a coupon clipping service you are not paying for the coupon but for the time clipping it. You should never pay face value (or more) for a coupon. In general we prefer coupon clippers instead of Ebay.
