 I find good manufacturer coupons at gas stations like 7-11. I've found a ton of coupons for $1/1 Juicy Juice and $1 off any ice cream. I just snag a few to take with me and wait til the items go on sale at my regular grocery store.

Sometimes you can find a coupon or 2 in the USA Weekend little booklet or Parade booklet that comes in the Sunday paper.

Most post offices have recycle bins near the PO boxes.  I've been known to rummage for unwanted coupons in those bins.  You'd be amazed at the deals I've done from recycled coupons!

I've asked the local convient store to save all the sunday papers that don't get sold on Sunday and pick them up on Monday morning.  Most stores throw them away.  I'll recycle them and keep the coupons.

I look for coupons everywhere I go! I've found coupons in grocery carts that people just leave! At a lot of stores coupons print out with your reciept and most people just toss them in the cart! I've even found coupons for free items laying on the ground in store parking lots that people crumple up and toss on the ground!
