Couponing 101: Step #1, Get Some Coupons

When you start couponing, the first thing to do is get some coupons. There are three main categories of coupons.

 Category #1: Sunday Paper Inserts: These coupons come from the Sunday morning paper and may include inserts from SmartSource (SS), Redplum (RP), Proctor and Gamble (P&G), and General Mills (UN). You can either subscribe to the Sunday Paper or pick it up on a newsstand.

Category #2: Coupons by Store: These coupons can only be used at the store designated on the coupon (ie. Target). These need to be kept separate from your other coupons but when ready to use, can be combined with manufacturer coupons for twice the savings!
 
 Category #3: All Other Coupons: These coupons may include but are not limited to Internet Prints (Printables), tear-outs from magazines, “peelies” peeled off purchased products, coupon books, coupons direct from manufacturers, and mailers.
