Thinking Thursday - Things you didn't know about couponing

Today's Thinking Thursday is just a few couponing tips I learned from Southern Savers Extreme Couponing Workshop back in April:

  • Read the fine print on your coupons. Manufacturers put the most expensive item's photo on the coupon, but it may not be the one you have to buy to use the coupon.
  • Jenny at doesn't list everything in a store's sale flyer - she only posts the items that are on sale at their lowest price in it's cycle.
  • You are legally able to only print two (2) copies of a printable online coupon. Each coupon is tracked in it's code.
  • When shopping with a $/$$ coupon ($5 off $25), use it first before your other coupons to ensure you meet the minimum purchase.
  • Your local IGA or local grocer is the best place to buy meats, and the cheapest. They use their meat prices to get you into the store. Publix has the most expensive meat in the Southeast.
  • Buying store brands or shopping at Wal-mart does NOT beat shopping Publix or Ingles B1G1 sales with coupons.
