Couponing can get you lots of essentials for a small price tag – if you know the secrets to effective couponing! These tips could save you thousands each year on groceries and other essentials.

#1: Finding Coupons

Most major grocery stores have an app that offers discounts. There are also apps dedicated to just coupons, like Ibotta and RetailMeNot. If you want to print coupons out, and the Krazy Coupon Lady are great resources.

#2: Stacking ‘Em Up

Most retailers don’t let you use multiple coupons on the same item – this is called “stacking.” But there’s a major loophole! You usually CAN use a retailer coupon with a manufacturer coupon. For example, if a retailer like Target offers a coupon on Colgate toothpaste, and a manufacturer like Colgate offers their own coupon on the same toothpaste, you can stack them together for major savings!

#3: Is It Worth It?

Sometimes we buy stuff that we don't need because the savings seem TOO good. This is a major couponing mistake – the whole point is to save money! Stock up on your needs first, wants second – and avoid buying something JUST because it’s on sale.

Prices of food and household items are continuing to increase. Couponing is an important skill for families to save money!
