Now that you know how to find coupons and organize them, you need to know how to find the deals. This is something that is going to take you some time. The longer that you coupon, the better you are going to get at this.
Your local store(s)
Each week, get your store’s circular and look through it. I always draw a circle around things that I like or think might be a good deal. After looking through it, start comparing the deals to coupons that you have. You can use the coupon database to quickly search to see if a coupon exists.
When you are shopping in the store, make sure you check for in store deals and the clearance section to see if there are products that you can pair with a coupon for a great deal.
Also find a blogger that covers the stores that you shop at. You can find a list of stores and blogs here. If you don’t see your store there, try googling the store name. Often a blog will show up in the first or second page of results. You can also look for your store on We Use Coupons (a message board site).
By following your favorite blogs
Bloggers do a great job of finding deals and sharing them with you for free! I suggest you follow at least 3-5 blogs. While I would love to be selfish and insist that you just follow Couponing to Disney, that isn’t even feasible…. so I made a list of blogs by state that you can find here.
