I am looking forward to collecting and using coupons any good tricks I should know to get started. Going to begin researching. Hope this is worth it. I love to hear the stories of people saving money for a little bit of time and effort put into clipping. is great. Just google and you will find tons of places.

Is there a place that you can sell coupons you don't use besides Ebay. If not there should be. there are plenty of coupons that I don't use I am sure someone else could.

Went to the local gas station yesterday they had coupons $1.00 off tropicana 12 oz oj. Grabbed a handful and took them to the grocery store as I was going grocery shopping anyways. Looked to see how much they were. They were on sale 10/$10. Woo Hoo. Got 16 ojs for free.

I used to have a coupon club with a group of friends. We would cut out every coupon we saw and, once per week, we'd get together and exchange them. For example, I'm not a coffee drinker but I would cut out coffee coupons and give them to my coffee drinking friends. My petless friends would give me all of their dogfood coupons.

Google "Hot Coupon World" and you'll come up with a great site for all about coupons. Other tips:

Sign up for store rewards cards. CVS is my favorite b/c they have an "Extra Care Card" and every week if you buy certain things you earn "Extra Care Bucks" that are good on your next purchase. I generally spend $20 at the beginning of the year and then use those ECB and coupons to pay for future purchases. Walgreens has a similar program called Register Rewards which is better than CVS b/c CVS usually limits items, however at Walgreens, you cannot use a coupon and a Register Reward on the same item (you need two items) and Register Rewards expire within two weeks, while ECB give you a month. So I generally prefer CVS.

Also, if you are not a member already- sign up for MyPoints and Swagbucks. Mypoints sends you emails you "click" on to earn points and eventually you earn enough for giftcards. I've been a member for a year and have earned 3 gift cards. SwagBucks is the same thing, but it's for using their search engine.

Those tips should get you started. I've saved a ridiculous amount of money by couponing over the last two years. I've been tracking for 2010. I've spent $1308.45 and saved $4434.07 so far. That includes all food, toiletries, AND baby items (diapers and formula, too). So it's very very possible to save a lot of money.

Went to the grocery store and they had Cereal 4/10 but if you but 4 you got them 4/6. I had a coupon for $1.50 off of 3 boxes. I ended up paying just over $1 per box. and milk was 1.88 a gallon. I love shopping from a flyer with coupons and a grocery list. It is great.
