I'm sure you've heard of those shows recently that show people who are super extreme about clipping coupons. Personally, I've never been much of a "couponer", but much of that is just laziness. I'm going to try to start using coupons more often, because you can score some seriously sweet deals.
The Internet is a treasure trove of buried coupons--you just need to know where to look. You can sign up for services like Groupon, which email you deals each day. You type in your ZIP code when you sign up, so the deals are specific to your area and include everything from entertainment to groceries to spa visits!
If you don't want an email every day, consider checking sites like New deals are posted several times a day, and most are for everyday items like cleaning supplies and coffee and toilet paper.
If you're more of a fashionista, you can sign up for email alerts at sites like, which gives you information on discounted designer brands from sites all over the Internet.
Are there any particular online coupon sites that you use? If so, drop a comment on the blog (because, as always, by participating here you can win FREE STUFF!).
Stay awesome,
