What should you know before you shop??

While shopping with coupons can save you tons of money, there are a couple of things that you should know before you visit the store. This is especially true if you are new to coupon shopping.

1. Find out the coupon policy of your favorite grocery store.

2. Find stores that double coupons, and what amount they double up to.

3. Find out if your store accepts internet coupons.

4. Find out if you need to sign up for their store card.

5. Find out when their sale starts and when they get in new shipments. This is especially helpful if the store is very busy and runs out of the sale items.

6. Find out when they mark down items like meat and bread that are close to the "sale by date".

7. Sign up for the store email list, many stores will email special coupons.

8. Try to find out what days are less busy, especially if you get frustrated easily when dealing with coupons.

If you can find out all of this information before you go, your trip will be much smoother.
