    Couponing #6: Walmart

    Walmart is another great place to coupon because their prices are already pretty low to begin with. Another fantastic thing about Walmart is they have a good selection of clearance items that tend to have coupons that match up with them as well. The number one complaint that couponers tend to have about Walmart is they are not very coupon friendly. In my experience, that is not the case. As long as you are nice and doing everything correctly, they should respect that. No need to be intimidated by a big store! Save that money! Coupons Walmart accepts manufacturer coupons and they do not have store coupons. They accept anything…

    Couponing #6: Walgreens

      I get on these Walgreen kicks where sometimes this is the only place I want to coupon at! Walgreens in a convenience store so everything there is more expensive than somewhere like Walmart because you are paying for the convenience! It is nice to have a place at the corner of happy and healthy, haha! Although it can be expensive if you are looking for a quick place to pick something up, they fortunately take coupons and have some fantastic stock up deals. I will break it down. The only thing I do NOT like about couponing at Walgreens is that they are very inconsistent. Every store can pretty…

    Couponing #5: Target

    Ah, Target, a woman’s home away from home and one of my favorite places to coupon! Honestly, I try to find deals here just so that I can go into target, get a Starbucks, and stroll around. The great thing about couponing here is that you can stack offers for great deals! My favorite things to get here with coupons are baby items, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, and for some reason I tend to always find some sort of free candy or goodies! No complaining here… Target Rules Remember in the last post I wrote about Kroger stores how you are only allowed to use five of the same coupons…
