Spend Less Save More: Extreme Couponing Step 1: Gathering Coupons
Today is day one of the five steps needed to become an Extreme Couponer, so let’s begin with step one gathering of coupons.
You’re going to need a lot of coupons the smart move is to get multiple copies of the same coupon, so that if you come across a deal you can maximize your savings. Think of coupons as “money,” because you’re going to use them like cash. Acquire as many as you can, using these top sources:
Where to gather these coupons:Sunday Newspaper
Coupon inserts and local ads are the best places to start. Look for coupon inserts with titles like “Smart Source,” “Red Plum,” and “Proctor & Gamble.” The more copies of a coupon the better, if you’re going for extreme you’ll need 4-10 copies. Now this doesn’t mean you have to buy all ten, think of the people around you in your neighborhood or work do they all need or use their Sunday inserts just send out a quick email to your neighbors or co-workers asking for their inserts if they’re not using them and you may be surprised you might just get more than you hoped for when you come to work Monday morning.
Why so many, well this way when you find your favorite deals, you’ll have four to ten coupons. Alternatively, if you’d rather not scour through multiple Sunday newspapers, you can actually buy coupons for much less than their savings value and have them mailed to your house using my favorite site Coupon Dede they are fast and reliable I’ve never had a problem with this site and they always have what I need even full inserts.

All the sources on my site our free and I use them myself. I would not place an ad or source if I first did not try it out and find benefits from each one.
