Last night I was explaining to one of my friends how to start couponing. Everyone wants to save money and it seems like more and more people are cutting costs by using coupons. I wouldn't put myself in the class of an extreme couponer like what you see on TLC's Extreme Couponing show, but I do like to save money. What I told my friend and I would tell anyone is the best thing to do is match up coupons with sales. It does take patience and planning, but you can find some pretty great bargains out there. The first place to start is to buy a copy of the Sunday paper. A website to check out to see what will be in the Sunday paper is Sunday Coupon Preview. I tend to buy two copies of the paper just in case I may need multiple copies of the same coupon. The next step is to search the web for printable coupons.
