Set a goal for yourself in regards to couponing that is 1 step higher than what you are doing right now. That means, if you are new to couponing, set a goal of getting 1 freebie or super cheap item a week. Once you feel comfortable with that, add a few more free or super cheap items to the list. Start with deals that are easy. Once you have mastered the easy deals, then add some more complicated deals, maybe that involve a rebate, catalina or drugstore rewards coupon. Add a few more deals to your shopping list each month, as you feel comfortable, and by the end of next year you will be paying much less for your groceries than you did this year. If you have already mastered your grocery store, move onto a drugstore. If you have mastered 1 drugstore, then move onto another. Start small, and add deals and stores as you feel comfortable!!!

What are the best products to buy in January and February?

Stephani

In January, many clothing stores like the Disney Store and clothing retailers have humongous sales to get rid of the winter stock and prepare for spring. This is the perfect time to stock up on clothes for next year! I get all my kids designer clothes at Walmart prices, by buying them ahead of time on clearance! I then put them away in the back of their closet, or up in the attic until next year. Also, lot's of stores like Target, have great toy clearance going on in January. If you have toy coupons to stack with the sale, you can grab even better deals! This is the perfect time to stock up on toys for birthday presents, Easter Baskets, and even for next Christmas!!!
