Where do you get all those coupons??!

So now that you have decided what type of a couponer you are , you need to decide where to get your coupons.

One choice is the sunday paper.  NOT all papers are created equal.  Usually there are 3 options in the paper, (P&G)  Proctor and Gamble, (SS) smart source, or (RP) Redplum.   Not every paper will have all three and some weeks there won't be anything in some papers.    The easiest was is to have the paper delivered to you.  Get multiple copies to really take advantage of the sales.   I tend to look at the paper in the store and if I see anything I can use I will buy them there.  I have been know to buy 10 copies one week and none the next. 

Another option is to "Purchase" your coupons.  You are paying for someone else to get the paper and do the clipping and sorting.  The good part of this is you only get the coupons you want .  Usually it is a rather cheap way to get them but if you miss a sale because they have not arrived then you are simply out of luck.    Ebay is one source for this.  You bid on a group of preselected coupons.  I prefer clipping sites.  My favorite is The coupon clippers, but there are several others that offer collection and clipping services.  Sites like are where people gather  to talk about  specials and you can trade or buy coupons there.

Check with neighbors, friends, relatives for their unused coupons.  Some work areas and libraries have coupon boxes where you can take some there to leave them and take out ones you use.   Keep your eyes out for machines in the stores called blinkies that give you coupons, or displays with tare-sheets on them.  These sometimes work out to great savings.
keep looking and gather those coupons.!!!!
