Couponing....post your tips!

A couple things I learned at a couponing seminar and some things I already knew.

With buy 1 get 1 free deals, use 2 coupons. I always do this! I get a lot of items VERY inexpensive this way.

Take advantage of companies that accept competitors coupons.

If something is on sale in an ad and they run out, get a rain check and staple your coupons to the raincheck. Even if the coupons expire before you redeem the raincheck, they will still accept those coupons!

Some places price match (like walmart) but the prices MUST be advertised. Publix never puts their prices in the ads!! At least not on their B1G1 items.

What are your tips?

For maximum savings, hold on to your coupon until that item is on sale.

Organize your coupons!  It's easy to clip them and then lose them or forget about them.  Keeping a coupon binder or organizer is the best way to be sure you can find what you need when you need it.

Make sure you know each retailers coupon policies for doubling.  I found out the hard way that our one grocery store only doubles the first coupon if you have more than one of the exact same coupon.  You may need to create multiple orders.

Great tips! 

Take advantage of round up days. Our albertsons is rounding up all coupons to $1 this week.

 These are good tips. I just recently found out about using two coupons on the buy one get one.

Just a general hint. If it says two for one, then you can purchase one and it will be half price. No so with buy one get one free.

Publix price matches but just with certain stores that are in their closest area.
