"Couponing"

I attended a coupon class last night, I have been wanting to learn how to save some money and I figured this class was a good place to learn how. Annalisa was kind enough to share her tips on saving money through coupons and such. Annalisa has a blog called Slave to Save where she will post good deals, and how to get the best deal for your dollar. Here are some highlights from what she talked about:

  • Buy in bulk when things you need go on sale
  • There are seasonal sales and quarterly sales so watch for those
  • Buy enough from the sale to get you through till the next sale
  • Combine coupons with sale prices
  • Maximize coupons when they go on sale
  • Two weeks after you get in the coupon inserts from the mail or newspaper those things will go on sale
  • Shop from you pantry from the things you were able to stock up on
  • There are 3 coupon inserts people in Utah get: Smart Source, Proctor and Gamble those come in the newspaper and Red Plum which comes in the mail on Tuesdays
  • She keeps her coupons in a file, flied weekly 
  • You can combine one manufacturer coupon with a store coupon
  • Smith's website allows you to put coupons from there website right onto your Smiths value card
  • Rite Aide is a good place to get diapers, toilet paper and other hygiene products. (With coupons and other deals she has never paid for diapers, I am still not certain how this one works so your best bet would be to email Annalisa)

Here are some some websites to check out:


I hope this helps or sparks and interest. Annalisa is more than willing to answer any questions you have, so check out her blog Slave to Save! I know you won't be disappointed you did!

Thanks for posting these tips on your blog. I really wanted to come that night, but Mike ended up having to work late, so I couldn't.=(
