and save BIG.
Here's how I'm doing it...for now at least.
I have started by cutting coupons, duh. I recently purchased a weekend only subscription to The Sun newspaper (Thank you Groupon. If you aren't using them you SHOULD!), I got my first one last weekend. I cut out what we eat, drink or use only. I categorized them.
I will do this for at least another two-three weeks, to build up a complete system of coupons.
Then, I will start implementing them into my shopping plan...according to my bi-weekly meal plan.
I will take only the coupons that I plan to use. I don't plan to stockpile for more than a 3 month supply of anything. If my store is doubling or tripling coupons, then that's a bonus, and I will try and match up to those shopping dates. I will also take advantage of the deals at CVS, Rite-Aid and Walgreens, like toiletries, etc.
This is my plan.
I am excited to build up to bigger and better savings each time. Eventually, I plan to join CouponSense.com. So, far it seems to be the best plan available.
Until then, here are my other online resources:
