Extreme Couponing Tip: Couponing on a Tight Schedule, Part 1

Whether you’re a busy mom, a college student, or working full-time, fitting in couponing can be daunting. Here are a few ideas to help you out!

1. Matchups: Hopefully, our site helps out with matching up the ads with coupons & promos so you don’t have to. If you aren’t next to stores that we cover, try Googling your location or nearby store(s) with words like “match ups” “coupons”, etc. You can come across blogs that scout out the week’s best deals and pair them with promos/ coupons.
2. Don’t Delay Cutting: Clip & organize coupons as they arrive. If you let them stack up in huge piles, it will put stress on you and take up blocks of time. Get older kids to help out,  clip during shows/ movies at home, or clip while the kids are playing.
3. Check out services: Look into coupon clipping services. It does cost up front, but the benefit is not having to clip them yourself, and you are buying coupons that you will use. Scan your local ad the day it arrives for sales and sale dates; check a blog for match-ups; then order the coupons they mention. My purchases usually come in the mail with a few sale days left.
