How do you get started with coupons??

I know that some of you who read my blog are "savings experts" while others may just be starting your coupon journey. I wanted to post some of the basics as information for those who are new, and a refresher for the veterans.

Where do you begin?
The most important thing to do is keep you ENTRIE COUPON INSERT!! This is so important, because even if you don't think you need it, it may go on sale for only pennies.

The second most important thing to do is, drop brand loyalty!! What does this mean? It means that you can save more money if you are open to using different brands. I know this is a tough one for some, but trust me you will save tons of money this way.

Develop a coupon organization system. There are several different methods out there, and what works for some does not work for others. It takes a little trial and error to find out what works best for you. You can read my post here about the Couponizer.

Plan it out!!  It is so important to be armed with a list and a plan when you go to the grocery store!!  You have to know where you are going, if you ever hope to get there!!  Visiting the store without a list is like taking a long trip without a map or GPS!!

These are some of the basic tips that will help you get started.  Do you have any great coupon tips??  If so share them in the comment section.
