Couponing fun

So here is a little info. about how I coupon. Sunday afternoon I take a walk with my family around the neighborhood and pick up the ad's from friends that don't want them. Remember, the more coupons you have the more you can get of an item. If you are getting it cheap, why not get a lot cheap. Works great for your year supply. A year supply isn't just for food. You are going to still want to wash yourself, house and clothes! I then have two sites that I go to for deals. (HCW) and (PYP) I use PYP for grocery stores and HCW for drug stores. (I get most of my cleaning supplies at Walgreeens! These are both free sites. On PYP I go to deals in your state. Then I pick which store I want to go to. They have listed everything in the ad and if it is a good deal. They also have listed what coupons go with it. They even have links to printable coupons! HCW has walgreens ad ups usually a week or two in advance. That way I can see if there is a really good deal coming up. If so then I track down more coupons. You can print two coupons per computer usually, so I will have Neil print them off each of the computers at his office. Or I go on ebay and for usually about 2.50 I can order a large quantity of the coupons. Like when I did the electrasol tabs deal. I ordered them, because the deal was worth it. In the beginning it took me a while to find the deals, get them organized and make it work. Now I spend maybe a 1/2 hour! I do clip all my coupons and organize them in a binder while I am waiting for kids at practices. I have friends that don't clip them until they want them because the posts say which date the coupon came out and which flyer it was in (ex. red plum flyer). I hope this isn't confusing! Have questions let me know!
