As much as I love Blogger, I've never been into the whole blogging scene. I'm a web designer... or at least I was but really haven't done any web design in years. I use to have dozens of websites for each of my passions but the last year or two I simply gave them up. That said....

I've decided that as much as I love Blogger I need to go back to a website layout. This doesn't mean that I'm stopping this blog, on the contrary I'm going to create a website and as I've done in the past incorporate the blog into it. I'm doing this because the blog is too cluttered as it is and I want to add areas for a list of local coupons and areas for local stores freebies, deals and steals. Right now this blog is so disorganized that looking for information is difficult. I want to make sure those who read this can find the info they need.

So coming in the next few weeks... or days depending on how fast I can whip up a design (and how much HTML/PHP I can remember) I'll have the new site up. This blog WILL continue to be here. I WILL continue to use Blogger but it'll be embedded on my new site. I'm getting a domain today so it'll be a few days before that's up even at it's bare basics so stay turned!

Where to get coupons

BEST PLACE: The Sunday newspaper!

In stores:

Blinkies – Found on various store aisles these little machines spit out coupons as you pull them out. Most blinkies have little lights that blink hence the name.

Catalinas – Receipt-like coupons printed at the register. Not all stores have Catalinas (such as WinCo). These are typically NOT printed on the back of the register receipt.

Hang/Wine Tags – Found around the neck of a bottle with a little piece of string or rubber band.

Peelies – Coupons found on certain products that peel away from the product.

Tearpads – Coupons on a tear away pad. Typically found in a display and not directly on the product.

Other ways:

Home mailers - sign up for products online or even contact a company to either complain or complement their products. Click here for a blog with over 200 links to companies that will mail you coupons!

Internet coupons - There are many places online that you can print coupons from. See links below for printable online coupons.

Magazines – Pretty much all magazines will have coupons in it. Better Homes & Gardens, Sunset, Parenting, Working Mother are a few. The BEST magazine with coupons is All You magazine.
