Couponing can take a ton of time, but I have discovered two sites that make it easier to find the deals and the coupons that go with them.

Common Sense with Money is my personal favorite. She has a nice organized list and breaks everything down into actual cost.
She also offer a free copy of the ebook Extreme Couponing 101 which helps you Learn the Secrets of Savings Thousands by Using Coupons. http://www.commonsensewithmoney.com/

The second os "For The Mommas" http://[URL="http://forthemommas.com/"]forthemommas.com/[/URL]
Most of the time it has the same deals as the Common Sense site, but it does not hurt to look at both.

I figure every saved buck helps!

Thanks, both wvyen and boonies for those sites. I want to get into couponing, but I don't really know what I'm doing. I shop at the commissary, and they don't double coupons or anything like that.

I use the Grocery Game but it's a paid service. It has been really worth it so far, but I don't actually get a Sunday paper every Sunday any more. My couponing has evolved over the last few months.

Grocery Game will tell me when something at my local stores has a store coupon or is just on a really good sale. Last week, it pointed out that HEB had canned black beans on sale for .26/can.

We do still save coupons for the items that we stock up on as preps or regular use. But because of food intolerances and general healthy eating, most coupons are no use to us. I make the most hay looking at store coupons rather than newspaper ones.

I will say it's made a tremendous difference in our budget. Last week I went to the store and used $50 worth of coupons, primarily in-store and manufacturer's peelies on the products. That's $50 extra worth of food in my pantry right now, and on our budget that's a big deal. Factor in that what I buy is mostly affordable food anyway, and $50 goes a long ways.

If anyone wants to get started, I'm always glad to discuss coupies!
