Wednesday – Grocery store ads come out in the Mississippi Press and Sun Herald Sunday – Weekly coupon inserts There is usually a different amount each week. Smart Source, Red Plum, P&G. Holiday weekends usually none.
Get Sunday paper Mississippi Press is $1 at Walmart now You get the same coupons as in Sun Herald ($1.50) Make sure when you buy the paper you check for inserts before you buy You should know how many inserts will be in your paper (other bloggers) Keep inserts for a few months. I keep mine in a plastic tub with hanging folders to sort by date

Start with Price Matching Everyone will be different Each family eats differently and buys different products For couponing, it’s better to not be brand loyal you will still have a few items you won’t want to give up On Wednesdays (or sometime before your shopping trip) Go through weekly grocery ads/look at their site It will take you a while to figure out what prices are good I save the most money weekly by price matching!!

Cuckooforcoupondeals.com There are coupons listed in this database from tearpads, online printables and Sunday paper coupons all listed with expiration dates and where they can be foundYou may not have the coupons she has in herdatabase. A lot of Sunday insert coupons are regional,and unfortunately our region doesn’t get a lot of thereally good coupons
