You're hearing all this talk about how it's National Coupon Month and you could be saving $10,000 a year with coupons but there's one important questions nobody's answering: Where do you find the coupons?
The Sunday paper: The Sunday paper is the best place to start. That's where you'll find coupon inserts with manufacturer and store coupons. Be careful, though. If you only want the Sunday paper it may be cheaper to run to the corner store every week than it is to buy a subscription.
The mail: Replum coupon inserts arrive in your mail on Wednesday, along with your local grocery ads. Redplum controls the marketing area and they decide who gets their mailer but, in general, just about everybody receives this mailer every week.
Coupon clipping services: Don't knock it until you've tried it. For bulk purchases of physical coupons, nothing beats a coupon clipping service.

Your grocer's website: Just about everybody has a website these days. Check your favorite store's website for coupons that download directly to your store's loyalty card. This goes for all stores, not just grocery stores.
Printable coupons: Again, check your favorite store's website. There are also several large coupon providers, including Coupons.com, Redplum, and ShopAtHome.com. Most manufacturers and brands offer exclusive, free coupons when you join their mailing list. Find their sites or like their Facebook pages to receive ongoing special offers and coupons.
Don't worry. Once you start focusing on coupons you'll find them everywhere. They're like pennies from Heaven. Clip 'em, print 'em and download 'em to your loyalty card or smart phone and start saving money.
