New Month...New Coupons!

I love it when the new month begins.  Out with the old and in with the new coupons.  Each month, several of the most popular coupon sites completely reload their coupons.  Not only that, they also clear your two limit max for the coupons you downloaded the month before. There are two ways to take advantage of this. 

First, download all the coupons you think you may want before the end of the month.  Check your favorite sites and download the coupons as close to the end of the month as you can.  Some sites load on the first day of the month and others load new coupons during the final week or days of the month.  Second, be sure to load up on your favorite coupons as early in the month as possible before they are snatched up or reach their download limit.  If you subscribe to your favorite coupon website, you will get an email when they load new coupons during the month.

Lately, I have noticed that some high dollar coupons are being issued with very limited times allowed for redemption.  For example, there is a $10 coupon for Claritin in this week's circular but it expires after only 7 days!  I plan to jump on this one and stock up for the upcoming spring allergy season.  I recently downloaded some Purex coupons that expired three days after I downloaded them.  Rather than let them go to waste, I gave them to a lady in the check out line.  She thanked me profusely.  It felt good being a coupon fairy.

Don't forget the manufacturer's coupons that are offered on their website, Facebk, and Twitter sites.  Send them an email and just ask for a coupon or two.  Be sure to let them know why you like their product(s) and you may get even more. 

Here are a few of the coupon sites that I check on a regular basis for printable coupons at the beginning and end of each month and all the weeks in between:

​Don't forget your favorite supermarket coupons, too.  Download digital coupons from the grocery store's website.​
​  These coupons can be stacked with manufacturer coupons that you download or clip from the inserts for even greater savings.

Finally, here's the bottom line tip to score great deals that will save you at least 50% or more on each item on your shopping list:
Wait for a sale that reduces the "regular" price by at least 30% then use a store coupon and/or a manufacturer's coupon.  If that lowers the total out of pocket by 50% or more, you have made a great deal.  That may be a great time to stock up.

That's it!
Happy Couponing!
