A few ways to save when printing coupons!

This is a tip for you greenies, or as we affectionately call you, “coupon virgins”.  When you print coupons from a site like coupons.com, redplum.com or smartsource.com, the best way to conserve paper is to print your coupons in threes!  I never print one coupon at a time (well, rarely).   Coupons generally print three to a page, so selecting three or six or nine, you get the picture, will use the least ink and get you the most coupons per page!  When you print one coupon at a time, often you’ll get a big ad at the bottom of the page.

  • Print in Black and White.  Your stores should ALL be excepting your coupons printed in black and white!  This will save you a lot on cost of ink!  Go to control panel, select your printer, find “printing preferences”, then “graphics” and then select grayscale.  This setting will save and all your coupons will print in black and white until you manually change it back.
  • Each coupon can be printed twice.  After you print the coupon once, click to go back to the screen where you see the coupons, (if you can’t find how to get back, just click the link from KCL again).  As an example:  Let’s say you printed a huggies coupon that you found on page 2 of coupons.com.  After printing it, you go back to page 2 and the coupon’s no longer there, so you conclude that it is gone- WRONG!  After you’ve printed the coupon once, it moves to the last page.  Go to the last page, select and print again.  Now the coupon will show “print limit reached” after your second print.
