How to Score Free Items at your local store!

  1. Save all the Sunday coupon inserts and organize them into a binder. Write the date on the front of the insert so it is easier to refer to specific coupons. Go through the weekly store ads and match them to coupons in the inserts.
  2. When you are clipping coupons, pay close attention to any size restrictions. Many times they will not specify a size. These coupons can be used to get travel size and other items for FREE!
  3. Always check retailer websites for store coupons. You can combine store coupons with manufacturer coupons to get items very cheap or even full size items for FREE. Many times if you stack the coupons and use them during a sale, an item can actually make you money!
