Don’t forget to check out my updated list here of free and cheap items for the Kmart Double Coupon event. This is a great opportunity to start your stockpile for very little out of pocket.
Here are a few tips for those new to couponing:
1. If you are interested in seeing your weekly grocery ad a day early, sign up for Red Plum here. I get the local store ads that typically break on Wednesday, in my mailbox on Tuesday. I also get assorted coupons for fast food restaurants with the mailer. Obviously I like the ads early to get a jump start on matchups but also so I know if it is a terrible week I need to hit my store one last time Tuesday night to catch the prior weeks sales.
2. Saving with Shelly has put together a great scenario for new couponers to take part in the Living Well promo at Safeway using Internet Coupons only. No coupon stash needed to get started! Click here to check it out.
3. Local readers: Its Thursday! If you live in Placer County the Rocklin and Roseville newspapers (not the Bee!) have duplicate copies of coupon inserts. At .50 this is a great way to get extra copies. The Placer Herald typically has next weekend’s Red Plum and last week’s Smart Source- I am crossing my fingers for more Electrasol coupons!
I have been looking for a new Cheerios coupon to go with the Living Well promo at Safeway and Crystal found it here!
Cheerios ran this program last year and once you sign up they will send you coupons weekly. This doesn’t start until June but these high value cereal coupons almost always result in a great deal somewhere!
Be sure to look out for specially marked boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios that have free Discover Cards inside for up to $30!
