FAQ Of The Day: Where Do You Get Coupons?

Hey all! I don't have a lot of time this week due to our church's Spiritual Leadership Conference all week, but I thought I'd put up a quick FAQ of the day each day. These are questions I've been asked by several people so I will put together a quick answer.

First FAQ of the day:

Where do you get your coupons?


Newspapers
I buy several Sunday papers each week. The AV Press does often have different coupons than the LA Times, so I buy both - usually 2 of each. The AV Press is available everywhere - newsstands all over town, Walmart, grocery stores, etc. The LA Times can be a little trickier to find. They tend to have these at gas stations, 7-11s, and Starbucks. I am planning to get a Sunday-only subscription to both soon so I don't have to go out to buy them every week!

In the Mail
The Redplum coupon insert comes in the mail, free, every Tuesday. Be sure to not throw it away! Clip all these coupons. I also receive coupons from various companies from time to time - I suggest going to all the major manufacturer's websites (P&G, etc.) and signing up for their mailing lists. Go to all your favorite brand's websites and sign up for their mailing lists! You will start receiving coupons in the mail in a few weeks. There are also coupons in the weekly ads you receive in the mail (grocery stores, discount stores, etc.). Make sure not to throw those away, either!

Magazines
I keep an eye out in all magazines I read for coupons. You can frequently find coupons inside many different types of magazines. I have started buying All You magazine every month. Each month the magazine has $50+ worth of coupons inside! The magazine costs less than $3 so it definitely pays for itself.

Online
You can find many, many printable coupons online from sites such as coupons.com, smartsource.com, redplum.com, couponmom.com, and your local grocery store websites. My printer broke so I am currently unable to print coupons, which means I am missing a lot of amazing deals at the moment. :( We are currently looking for a cheap new printer. If I can find one at a good enough price it will pay for itself in a month with all the coupons I will be able to print! But if you have access to a printer, do not miss all the amazing coupons you will be able to print! If you don't have one, consider trying to find a cheap one. Like I said, it will pay for itself in about a month. :)

On Product Packaging
Check all product packaging for coupons. There are often coupons stuck to the products (called peelies), or inside the box/bag. Always check before tossing the packaging! There are also coupons in grocery stores near products, and coupons that print from the register when you purchase certain products (called Catalinas).

Hope this post is helpful! Let me know in the comments if you have any other sources of coupons. :)

  1. Target also has it's own list of coupons that can be matched up with any manufacturer's coupon as well. :) I'm really getting into this and can't wait to watch my budget grow instead of shrink. :)
