Angela is a winner of Top 25 Couponing Moms - 2013
What advice would you give to a mom who wants to start couponing?
1. Start small. Don't try to be an extreme couponer at first. You'll overwhelm yourself and it wont be any fun at all! 2. Get Organized. FInd a coupon organizing system that works for you. Me, I use a binder and keep my coupons in baseball card sheets so I can see them all easy one page at a time. 3. Follow blogs! Like mine, there are a ton of fantastic coupon blogs out there that will show you how to use coupons and pair them with sales for incredible deals and freebies!
How much do you save yearly using coupons?
I am very good at pairing deals to get free items at the store, but not everything will be free. My goal is to save around 40% at checkout. While I haven't calculated exactly how much I have saved in a calendar year, I would guesstimate a few thousand.
What is the best resource you've found for finding coupons?
Again, one of the best places to find coupons is by following coupon blogs. We provide links to grab them easily. I have found that many of my favorite brands post exclusive coupons on their facebook pages. Sunday papers have inserts except on holiday weekends. These are all great places to begin!
