Advice for beginner couponers: “Start simple. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Do a few online deals or choose just one physical store to start with (local grocery stores are usually the best) and familiarize yourself with their coupon policy. Find a site that lays the weekly deals out for you and use that to make a list and print coupons so that you are prepared when you get to the store. Don’t feel like you didn’t succeed if everything isn’t free and don’t feel like you need to have a coupon for everything. Coupons are great, but just because you don’t have one it doesn’t mean you aren’t getting a great deal!”
