COUPONS and the women who love them.

Some of you have asked about the art of couponing so Ill just direct you to some helpful sites and tell you what I do.

First of all you need Grocery Smarts. Its a website that tells you what is on sale at your local store and matches it up with current coupons so you get the most bang from your buck. Ads come out every Wednesday and the site is usually current by then. The passport for Utah is g84ckp. Once you use it bookmark the page so you don't have to enter it every time.
update: Savvy Shopper Deals is another website like Grocery Smarts that doesn't require a passport.

Another useful site is Pinching your Pennies. You can go to the Utah forum and find deals that are going on locally. I also like it because people post different deal scenarios.

There are lots of ways to organize coupons. Im really not hardcore. But here is a site that will explain it and much much more. Its probably easier than what I do and takes less time but I haven't advanced yet.

If you don't get the paper (I just get it Fri, Sat, and Sun) there are plenty of online coupons. They update every month. Also make sure to print them twice. Most of the time they have great coupons for milk, cheese and yogurt that you can use on ANY brand. Look out for those. :)
update:  I get 2 weekend papers now since they went on sale for $39/year!

Also thank you to Kori for introducing me to all of this. We have saved SO much money!!!
