Learn How To Coupon In A Week – 7 Day Start Up Guide!
Day 1: Let there be Organization!
The first thing you will want to determine is how you will keep your coupons organized. There are two most popular methods are the infamous Coupon Binder or the File System.
Day 2: Create Your Coupon Arsenal!
If you wanna kill those deals, you gotta get some coupons! Let me point you in the right direction. The one way to obtain coupons everyone seems to know about is the Sunday Newspaper (some parts of the country may get them on a different day, but most areas get them Sunday.) There are 3 different types of coupon inserts you may receive – remember these names! They will be very important throughout the rest of your coupon loving life and especially this week as you learn how to coupon! Say Hello to my little friends – SmartSource (SS), RedPlum (RP) and Proctor & Gamble (P&G). Insert coupons are JUST the beginning when it comes to coupons. Check out this video on other types of coupons that are out there!
As we mentioned already, a great easy way to get coupons is to print them yourself. Printable coupons (aka IPs – internet printables) are available to print from our very our own handy dandy Coupon Printing Center right on the Yes We Coupon website. As long as you have a printer and a compatible device to print with, you’re in business!
In addition to physical coupons, there are lots of additional resources to utilize to save even more money. Some stores offer “Digital Coupons” that you can load to your store loyalty card. Check your stores to see if this is something they offer! In most cases, digital manufacturer coupons cannot be stacked with paper manufacturer coupons, but that may vary depending on the store. YMMV. Another EASY way to save is to take advantage of money saving coupon apps! These are all completely FREE and they can really help boost your savings even more, if you can believe it! Most app rebates offered are one-time use only, unless otherwise specified. Here’s a rundown of some of our faves!

Day 6: Your stock is about to skyrocket – Stockpile that is!
It’s impossible to get rock bottom prices on everything you and your family uses and consumes week after week. Sales do always come back around, but it can take several weeks or sometimes even months. This is where stock-up prices and stockpiling comes into play. Stock up price is when an item hits its lowest price point. In many cases this may make it free or if not free, extremely cheap. Stockpiling is buying items when they are at their lowest price point with the hope that you have enough of the product to get to the next sale. However, stockpiles are extremely personalized and can vary greatly from person to person based on their needs or storage space.
There is a pattern every year when it comes to stockpiling for specific items, check out this helpful article for when you can expect to see deal on specific items! Read It Here >>>>> The Sales Cycle: What to Stock up on and WHEN!
