An excellent source that I use to find alot of great deals is Coupon Mom.  Coupon Mom is a website that provides coupon matchups for items at your favorite store.  She does all of the hard work for you!  Because this is an online database, it is super easy to click on the deals you like, cut out the coupons you need, and go save lots of money.  All you need in order to access to all of Coupon Mom’s information is a username and password.  It is completely free to sign up and you can visit the site as often as you like!  Read below to get the scoop on how the site works…

After signing up, log in to your account.  On the lefthand side of the screen, you will see Grocery Deals by State.  When you access this page, you can choose from many different stores.  Walmart, Kroger, Target, Publix, Riteaid, CVS, Walgreens, etc!  When you click on your favorite store, you will see a page of entries that look something like this:

6/14 SS          Schick Quatro Razor          4.00          1          7.99          3.99          50%

What does this mean, you say?

6/14: The date of the circular where the coupon can be found.  Hence the reason for filing your coupons by date.

SS:  The name of the circular.  Smart Source, Red Plum…etc.

Schick Quatro:  Product name.

4.00:  Coupon value.

1:  Quantity.  The number of products you have to buy in order to use the coupon.

7.99:  The sale price (or original price)

3.99:  The OOP price.  Out of pocket, that is.

50%:  The percent of your savings…the most fun number!

Another great thing about the database is that you can organize the entries by using the up and down arrows beside each category.  Since saving the most money is my main goal, I always click the arrow beside the percentage saved to organize the list that way.

Now go down the list, click on all your favorite deals, and print your list.  Cut out the appropriate coupons and go shop!  How simple!!  Coupon Mom also has a Grocery Coupon Database where you can search for specific products.  Need some paper towels?  Go to the Database and search for coupons.

Go check it out!

    great site! I signed up for coupon mom after seeing this. One question I have is it possible to get a coupon insert that has a previous circular date? thanks!

    Hi, Casey! Thanks for the comment! I do not know of a place to buy old coupon inserts. You might be able to ask family and friends if they have older papers around the house. Hope this helps!
