If your kids eat four times their own body weight each day, you know how tight your weekly grocery budget can get.
Why not save a little money with coupons? No need for extremes here, just some simple savings.
You can find grocery and food product coupons in:
- Inserts in your local Sunday paper
- Online coupon sites like DailyGroceryCoupon.comÂ that offer free, printable coupons for grocery items
- Coupon books from your favorite grocer, like Whole Foods.
Other savings sites offer coupons and discount codes for general merchandise like clothing, electronics, toys and more:
- RetailMeNot.com – a one-stop source for printable coupons and coupon codes. Coupon codes may be online for participating retailers. Coupons and codes change daily, so be sure to check in often.
- Dealigg.com – a hotbed of deals and coupon codes for products and merchandise, like clothing, gadgets and more. You can also search for coupons by store brand, like Kohlâ€™s and Sears.
Mom and super-saver, Kimberly Danger from MommySaversÂ has these tips for saving money with coupons:
- Be sure the coupons you clip are actually a good deal. If off-brand products are still cheaper than name brand with a coupon, consider purchasing the off-brand.
- Combine coupons with two-for-one offers or other store deals. For instance, if your store has cereal on sale for two boxes for one price, and you also have a coupon for that brand of cereal, use it. Youâ€™ll end up saving more this way.
- Find stores that will double your coupons. Call ahead and ask if your store allows doubling up. Not all do.
- Clip coupons ahead of time. Then keep them organized so you remember to actually use them.
We love these cute coupon organizers:
