Extreme Couponing 101 – Where to Find Coupons

Extreme Couponing 101

Where to Find Coupons


There are many ways to get coupons and several of them are free!  Remember as a couponer, you’ll want to get between 4-6 copies of your favorite coupons.  this is so when you head to the store to get FREE toothpaste, you’ll be able to get 4-6 tubes instead of 1.


Sunday Paper

Tucked neatly inside each Sunday paper are “Coupon Inserts” which will contain Smart Source (SS), Red Plum (RP) or Proctor & Gamble (PG).  Before you order a subscription to your paper ask them two questions- Do they offer a Sunday or weekly only subscriptions?  and Do they offer a discount if you buy multiple copies of Sunday’s paper?  Remember, it’s a huge benefit to have multiple copies of coupons!Coupons


Other stockpiling Sunday paper options:

  • Pick them up at the dollar store for an even $1.
  • Ask local coffee shops if you have have theirs (maybe offer to recycle papers for them as a trade).
  • Have friends and family save them for you.  Most people won’t mind helping out.
  • Go to recycling centers and get them (before to ask the attendant if this is allowed before you start “dumpster diving”).
  • Get to know the newspaper carriers, they may be willing to give you inserts from papers that they don’t sell, also ask the convenience store clerks too…the store only has to turn in the top portion of the first page of the paper for credit.
  • See if your work subscribes to a Sunday paper and ask if you can have the insert.

  1. Rather than throwing out expired coupons you can send them to service members who are stationed overseas. My daughter is in the USAF in England, they can use expired coupons up to 6 months after the expiration date. Just a thought

  2. Ihaveahippyname says

    I want to coupon because I literally only have 10 dollars each month left over for food, but it’s confusing to me where you can use what coupon and how every store has different policies like some have the no coupon if it already is a store sale item.

  3. Thanks for sharing this information, the organic coupons from Simply Organic will work for us. Thanks
