How To Start Extreme Couponing To Save Big And Have Fun!

Do you have a passion for saving money? Do you love to cut costs in everything that you do and get a thrill from trying to reduce your grocery bill on a weekly basis? If so, you may want to find out how to start extreme couponing so that you can save even more!

You need to know the basics of couponing before you can understand how to star. If you have never used coupons before or you do not use them on a regular basis. then take some time out to read up on what you can achieve with these before you go any further. Once you understand the basic concepts, then you can move onto the more advanced levels of saving money.

One of the first concepts you need to know when embracing this type of couponing is what is the difference between a store coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon. You will find that manufacturer’s coupons come out on a regular basis, whether it be weekly or monthly and can be used to obtain a discount off a brand name product. Be careful with these as they do have an expiry date on them. Once the coupon cycle is over, the retailer sends them off in bulk to the manufacturer to obtain a check.

Additionally, big name stores also have their own coupons issued on a regular basis, but learning the cycle of when these will appear is a little harder to do. Many couponers will shop at more than one store to do their grocery shopping so that they can make the most of the store coupons available at the time.

One of the most favorite bargains an extreme couponer can find is when store and manufacturer coupons overlap on the same product. When this occurs, you can get double savings so stock up if it is a product that you use regularly in your daily life. You may even want to consider clearing a special storage space within the home or garage where you can stash your bulk bought items. Some products can come out at close to 100% free when using the stacking method so you want to take advantage of this.

Some stores, but not all, may offer the opportunity for double coupons. This is when a retailer will double the value of either their coupons or those of a manufacturer (or sometimes even both) on a specific day. They may be doing this to increase the amount of customers in their store on a specific day. These are not always well advertised, so the next time you are in your favorite grocery store, ask the manager if they run specials with double coupons and if so, when.

Now that you have a fundamental idea of how to start extreme couponing, you can begin putting together a plan of action for yourself. It may take a little time to track down the coupons and refine your techniques, but once you get into the right groove be prepared to see big savings rolling your way.
