After several more hours of reading up on couponing, exploring coupon websites, and even watching a few episodes of Extreme Couponing, I think I have a plan down. Here is what I plan to do:
*Browse through the “Current Walmart Deals” page on Coupon Mom (I usually shop at Walmart.)
*Browse through the “Extreme Grocery” and “Extreme Drugstore” deals for Arizona on Coupon Mom (I would be willing to go to other stores for the best deals.)
*Print the list of deals from Coupon Mom that I want to take advantage of
*Check the Krazy Coupon Lady website for their “stock up” deals (they put little graphics next to the best deals on their list, which they suggest to stock up on, and it’s a very easy way to scroll through and see the best deals)
*Print any online coupons I want to use
*Place an order with The Coupon Clippers for any coupons that I want multiples of
*get newspaper (yeah, soooo, long story short, I found a newspaper that has the inserts I want, but I have to get it delivered to my parents’ house, but I am usually there on Wednesdays, so that’s when I will pick up the previous Sunday’s paper), write date on the circulars, store the circulars
*Clip any coupons I plan on using for that week’s shopping trip
*Look through my emeals meal plans and plan our meals for the next 1-2 weeks
*Go grocery shopping, use coupons, save a ton of money!
I will let you know how this goes!
