Krazy Coupon Sources

I've had a couple people asking me where I find all the coupons that I use to create my brag-worthy transactions.  Never having been the kind to keep a good thing under wraps, I'm more than willing to share with you all the sources of my savings!  Be warned, however.  There are a LOT of coupon sites and blogs out there, so sorting through and picking the ones that will work best for your couponing style and location is essential.  Here are the sites and blogs that I read daily to keep me up to date on the deals and steals to be had.

  The Krazy Coupon Lady - My first stop for finding the hidden deals and the hottest coupons.  KCL will provide links to the Totally Target match-ups and walk you through how to make your coupons work for you.  Her book is on my birthday list!

Smart Couponing - A great source for finding awesome coupons, including those that can only be found on manufacturer websites or via Facebook.  This site is amazing and the coupon database rocks!

Common Sense with Money - Based right here in Wisconsin, this site does a great job of providing potential deal scenarios.  It also hosts an "Iron Shopper" competition to see who can score the best deals.  Also has a coupon database!

Freebies4Mom - Thanks to this beauty, I have scored a free Gilette ProFusion Power razor for Evan, point codes for Pampers Gifts to Grow program, Snapfish coupon codes, free samples, and so much more.  She's always the first to report a killer freebie.

$5 Dinners - In addition to the amazing (and cheap!) recipes, this site also shares valuable coupon info and sources.  You can even search the recipes by ingredients!  Not one to be missed!

Keeping Life Creative - Another wonderful source for recipes (especially featuring rice and beans), this site is another one with a coupon database to search.  Awesome!

Now, I subscribe to all of these RSS feeds through Google Reader, so I am constantly being updated whenever there is something new posted on any of them.  This can make for literally hundreds of posts in only a couple of days.  Sometimes I can scroll right past if I see it's a post for deals exclusive to a store I don't have (like Albertsons, Rite Aid, or Fred Meyer), but it still makes for a lot to go through.  Start with just one or two so you don't get overwhelmed.  I definitely recommend using a feed reader like Google Reader rather than trying to visit every site every day.  You'll drive yourself crazy if you do it that way!

Coming up soon - my attempt at a Coupon Binder!

Happy Couponing!
