Gathering Up Coupons this Weekend


http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2009/Sep/25/newspaper.jpg Whether you are new to couponing...thinking about joining us...or an old pro' ... it always helps to get a heads up! As it is the end of the month (ALREADY??) this weekend's paper will be full of coupon inserts for your cutting enjoyment.

Once a month, P&G (Proctor and Gamble) puts out a circular that has coupons for a wide variety of their products. These coupons are generally good for the entire month so it is important to clip them and save...even if you don't think you will be using them THIS week in your shopping.

You will also find both Red Plum and Smart Source circulars in this weekend's paper. Both of these provide a wide variety of coupons for a wide variety of products.

Matched with printable coupons and store sales you can find some great savings by clipping and saving what you find in Sunday's paper. Personally, on weekends like this I will buy between four (my normal purchase) and six papers to stock my coupon couffers. If you don't feel like going out at purchasing all of these papers...there are many different ways to round up coupon inserts. You just have to get creative. Read more of my thoughts on this to spark your own imagination. How do I keep track of all of these coupons? There are several different methods, I prefer to use a coupon binder. You can see mine HERE.

Check back on Sunday when I'll share some tips for developing a frugal mindset...as well as some of my favorite deals around town!

What about the coupons you don't use?

Please collect them and contact your local American Legion Post (Paola does, but don't know if Lawrence participates in) a program called Coupons for the Military, an American Legion Auxiliary Service Project.

The Military can use the coupons on base for 6 months past expiration (in certain places).

An easy way to show support for our troops.

That is an excellent point! Hopefully you will find the post I have written here helpful:


It was written quite some time ago but I believe all of the contact information is still relevant. There are some addresses and detailed information about shipping your expired coupons to military families overseas! Thanks for reminding me!

Well I'm still getting used to the format here so my link didn't work in my last comment. Stay with me here, folks! Here is the link to information on sending expired coupons to our troops and their families overseas:

If you want a bigger variety of coupons (and better quality ones), you need to purchase the paper from the biggest market area. The KC Star would be it around here. You usually get double the coupons in the Red Plum & Smart Source inserts compared to the LJW.
