Ok, so I know that the sound of cutting coupons sounds like a hassle.  And at the beginning it really does sound to be too much effort.  But one thing I will promise you is that it really pays off!  I actually look forward to Sunday’s Morning Paper now to see what coupons came in the inserts.
There is something that does that I really like.  She tells you exactly what to buy in order to get the best deal.  For example, this is what she posted today by going to Walgreens:

Now, the only thing is that you need coupons in order to get the best deal~  There are some coupons that you can print off of your computer, like mentioned above.  However, you will need the coupons out of the Sunday paper as well! 

What I have done is subscribed to just the Sunday paper of The Daily Herald.  However, I get 5 copies of it!  If you aren’t sure if you will be into the couponing thing, you can start out with just one. 

Right now, I pay $16.44 a month to get 20 papers delivered to my door.  Let me just telll you, that is 5 coupons of the same thing!  So you can really stock up on things that go on sale or “go on free” as I like to call it!  If you call The Daily Herald and tell them you are a Savvy Shopper, you can get that special deal. has more information about it and I think that Amy has really explained it all- everything from organizing coupons to how to use them to get the best deal.

Ok, now that you are completely overwhelmed, feel free to comment and ask questions so I can make it understandable!

Have fun and good luck!
