OK, so one way I always try to save money is by utilizing any and all coupon codes I can find whenever I shop. This works whether you’re buying something online or in person at the actual store. There are many, many websites on the internet that offer up coupon codes for just about every website/store you can imagine. Generally, I check these websites for the latest codes EVERY TIME I plan on making an internet purchase. It only takes a minute and can save you a few dollars or more. Admittedly, I’m not so great when it comes to printing/clipping coupons for my in-person shopping, but I’m working on it! And in this economy, you really need to save wherever you can, right?
Below is a list of websites I typically visit when looking for coupon codes. If I can’t find a coupon for a particular store I’m looking for, I’ll do a Google search to try to find a random coupon code from the internet. You never know what coupon code you might find!
And like I said above, I’m trying to get better about my “in-store” coupon use as well. Some of the websites above have coupons for in store purchase too, you just need to specify, “printable coupons” when doing your search. The in-store coupons seem a little harder to find unless you go to directly to the stores’ websites, but sometimes the savings are worth taking a little extra time!
If you’re looking for grocery store coupons, however I do have a great website for you:
You put in your zip code and the coupons that come up are specific to your area. Once you’ve gone thru all the available coupons and checked the ones you want, you click print and out they come! It’s super easy and makes coupon clipping not nearly as painful! As they say on one of my son’s favorite shows, Yo Gabba Gabba, “Try it! You’ll like it!” Coupon Mom seriously takes the effort out of clipping coupons and really gives you no excuse to not save money every time you go to the grocery store!
I’ll definitely expand on this topic in future posts as there are many tips and fine points to saving the most money. And just a heads up that sometimes it’s a little more difficult than others to find the right coupon code. And some retailers are definitely more open to coupon codes than others. Victoria’s Secret has to be the most awesome e-tailer I’ve come across when using coupon codes. You can enter multiple codes for one purchase and usually end up getting a good discount, discounted or free shipping, and maybe even a free gift with your purchase. And that’s all without their credit card! I can’t even fathom the savings if I had an Angel card! LOL! Happy Savings and feel free to suggest any other websites you use to get coupon codes and discounts!
That’s always been one of my mottos anyway! I’m no expert at saving money by any means, but I do like to keep my eye out for a good bargain. I wanted to share my findings with other Moms (and other people interested in saving money) and thought a blog would be the perfect way to do so. As I come across a good deal or a new way to save money, I will post it here. Please feel free to email me or post a comment with ways you like to save money or a really great deal you just found! I’m all about sharing info so let’s all help each other out! I look forward to saving money with you! (I’m sure my husband does too! lol!)
