There are so many places to get coupons these days. They can be found on your computer, delivered with your mail and in the stores both online and offline. Not to mention many bloggers compile lists of specific stores coupons on their blogs which they compile for us from Sunday newspaper flyers in order to up your savings more. There are even sites that have deals sent to your inbox for locations in your immediate area. Not to forget the places that pay bloggers to place coupons on their blogs. So---where should you start? Where can you get the best deals and save the most money?
First off, if you do not need an item or were not planning on getting it—guess what—you will be spending more money even if you do use a coupon! Food or drugstore coupons are the exception to this rule. If you buy a brand that is not only on sale but you happen to have a coupon and you were going to buy a similar product—of course you should try it out. You may find a new favorite product!
If you happen upon an online coupon for a service, say a haircut, and you actually need that haircut—yes, you will be saving money. A gym membership—that depends--will you really use it, or will you go once and then make excuses and never quite make it there again. If you really were going to a store to buy a specific item and you search the internet-no online coupon or offline coupons (and no free shipping deals) well you would probably be better off just buying that item even if it means driving to the store to save on shipping.
