Never go shopping with your spouse

I planned on spending only $75 tonight at the grocery store and a $150 total for two weeks worth of groceries. Well I went shopping with the hubby tonight at the Richland WinCo and he spent close to $350!! Of course he bought tons of meat to break down for the month. As soon as he finds the receipt (he paid so he has it... somewhere) I'll break down what we paid and for what.

Okay, he lost the receipt either outside of Chase or at Petsmart. He checked the bank account and the actual amount he spent was $324.52.

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.
