This time of year they have a lot of mini books on the cardboard display units – one was by Keebler and Kelloggs – and had $50 of coupons in it! There are also tear pads, blinkies, peelies, wine bottle tags all over the store. In less than 5 minutes a few weeks ago, I got over $100 of coupons! – Check my blog post Keep Your Eyes Open and see what I am referring.
**Try writing your favorite companies: Write and ask for coupons
What products do you regularly use and love but rarely can find good coupons for? Write to the manufacturer, tell them how much you like their product and politely request that they send you any coupons they have available (don’t forget to include your mailing address, too!).
Usually, it only takes a few minutes to do so through a company’s contact form and you’ll very likely get some sort of coupons just for asking. In many cases, you’ll receive high-value coupons or even free product coupons!
**Do you get the All You magazine from Walmart? You can subscribe to it and get it for less than $1 an issue and they always have over $50 in coupons in each issue.
**Add the Catalinas and Check Out Values coupons that they give you when you pay – things like the Free milk or eggs deals and you have a great variety to choose from!
If all else fails, try a coupon swap with your friends – if you don’t need diaper coupons but your friend does and they have dog food coupons but no dog, and you could use those coupons for Bowser, go for it! Start one at church or through the school moms.
