2. How to find a good Couponing Website

Now that you have some coupons, you need to know how to use them!

The very best thing to do is find a good website. As I mentioned in the first post, There are hundreds of wonderful people out there, you have built websites and done all the work of finding the sales and matching the coupons so all you have to do is look up the information they've provided, and go from there!
The tricky thing is finding a website that is useful to you for the area you live in.

Couponmom.com is a good place to start, because she lists a few stores by state. I personally also like how she has it set up in a list form. If you click on a store, it will pull up a new window with all that store's deals. If you go to % Saved on the far right, and click on the DOWN arrow, it will then list the deals by how much you save having the free and best deals on top.

Under the box where you click on your state, you can also click on National chains like Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, etc. Most states have these stores, so you should be able to find some good deals. This is a good place to start, but it's not very specific to certain regions. Therefore, it's even better to see if you can find some websites that are specific for stores in your area.

When we first moved to the south, I had no clue of any websites. One day when I was in the store, I noticed a woman holding coupons as she shopped. We started talking and I asked her what websites she used. She told me a couple that she used that I have never heard of, but which have become some of my staples for finding good coupon deals. I've learned of MANY more from other local couponers which I've met in the store, changing my oil, friends at church, etc. So, when in doubt: Ask someone!

And it's fairly easy to spot a couponer at the store. They are often the ones with a big binder of coupons, or an envelope, or a handful, and they usually have a great big smile on their faces as they pile their amazing deals into their carts!
