Some favorite websites I like to use are (which are free): Pinching your Pennies & Grocery Smarts (Utah only). You can contact Grocery Smarts for a free class as to how to do coupons most effectively, as well as getting a screaming deal on mulitple newspapers (part of the trick). Let me know if you would like any more information.

I have been doing coupons for about 3 1/2 years now, off and on, and I have saved so much money!
I have not only been able to feed my family very well, but have built up a food storage over the years that has benefitted us during a time of unemployment.
Every once in a while I get into a bit of a slump and don't do it like I should. But when I pull myself together and get on it, I reach a total "high" for getting bargains.
Today while Sofie was at preschool I went and took advantage of some deals. I went to 3 different stores (because I had the time and energy) and spent a total of $64.27. I saved a total of $257.50!
To give you a sampling, this included (3) 12 count double rolls of Charmin, Rubbermaid storage containers, 10 Crest toothpastes, (4) Bic razors (nice ones), (9) Kelloggs fruit snacks, granola bars, salad dressing, 2 in 1 shampoo, as well as plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and much, much more.
