The Coupon Butler

Couponing-getting started Part 1

Posted on: December 29, 2009

It is the end of  2009, maybe some of you are setting goals to do better financially this coming year.  Maybe some of you have seen my crazy savings and want to see what it takes to do it. Well let me help you get started on this fun life of couponing.

This Sunday there will be a bunch of coupon inserts in the paper. Make sure no matter what, you get the paper this Sunday. If you Publix shop I recommend buying 2 sets of papers.  Publix has a bunch of B1G1 free deals every week, if you have 2 coupons you can use them both to save BIG.  Depending on your family size I would buy more than 2 papers. We currently buy 4 papers every Sunday, this Sunday I am thinking about buying 6-8.

In my experience, the bigger the paper the better the coupons.  I highly recommend the St Pete Times for coupons.

It will take you awhile to get a good stash of coupons, probably a month. If you Publix shop then make sure you check out the front ad rack in your store, there are Advantage flyers with coupons for Publix grab 2-4 of these.

There are blinkie coupons, they are in the aisle at the store in a machine with a flashing red light.  I would look for blinkies as you shop and pull from them.

Don’t get discouraged if this is confusing and overwhelming. You will get the hang of it, just be patient.
