Tonight I went to Couponing 101 taught at church by our friend Jodi. I left slightly overwhelmed but excited by the challenge of saving money. With two babies on the way we need to save in every way possible.
Here are a few tips Jodi shared with us (I'll just give out a few, she gave us tons!):
-Buy a big city newspaper every Sunday, maybe two (for us that means the Raleigh paper)
-Check out SouthernSavers.com for a list of weekly sale items at several different stores and where to find coupons for each of those items. That's how you save your money, using coupons for sale items!
-Make sure you know the coupon rules for your store (ie double coupons everyday, 20 coupons per day limit)
-Just because a coupon says "Do Not Double or Triple" doesn't mean it won't double or triple at the register. If the first number in the bar code (on the coupon) is a 5 it will usually double, if it's a 9 the coupon will probably not double.
Thank you Jodi for lots of great, useful information!
