I'm fairly new to couponing.  I've signed up with CouponMom.com. but for my area she has Safeway as the only store for me to use.  I know there are more sites, better sites but I really don't know which they are.  I think I've found a good one only to be lead somewhere for any other reason.  I want easy to use, honest, friendly, useful, couponing sites.  Please help!    Also, are there still stores that double coupons?

I love moneysavingqueen.con she is based out of oklahoma, but her weekly matchups are available for a variety of stores. What grocery stores are near where you live?

I tend to go for the coupons for the GoDaddy ones which can give huge discounts of web renewals etc:

The other ones I use are primarily for writers, courtesy of Schiel & Denver Book Publishers and S&D UK Book Publisher related:

If you have products you like, I suggest writing to the company's or checking out their websites for coupons.  A short letter/email telling them how you use their products might suprise you,

I also follow a site that is a general site that has lots of information and usually has links to online coupons. 

Check out this awesome site:  http://www.afullcup.com/register/?referrerid=239603    It has saved us lots of money! 

Good Luck,

Do be aware as you get into couponing that sometimes not using coupons is cheaper.

Sure, sugar cereals have coupons to cut their price.   On the other hand, once a week I made up a big pot of oatmeal and put it in the fridge.  In the morning I microwave a bowl.  Much more healthy and cheaper and just as fast..  I can add fruit if I want and I know it's just fruit, rather than who knows what chemicals and artificial-fruit-flavored bits.

Similarly, I've switched out some of our meat for dried beans.  Requires a little bit of prep work (and I do sometimes cook the beans on the weekend and stuff them in the fridge so I have them ready for during the week since I do work).  A lot cheaper!  And again, probably healthier.  Just switchign to casseroles rather than Hunk Of Meat would be another option.

A few low cost recipes will save you way more than couponing--and save you time.  My Mom had her handful of regular recipes that are now my comfort food.   She also knew exactly how much to buy for those, so she didn't throw out leftover ingredients--another major cost. 

And, depending on how much time you have, coupons may not be worth it.  I will flip through the Sunday paper but that's as far as I go.  So little of what I eat is in coupons (and I won't touch most of the processed food that has coupons) that I'm a lot better off taking the time I'd spend looking for, printing, and matching coupons and just make myself some food from scratch to put in the freezer--so that when I'm out of food I don't grab take-out!

Finding a store you can buy in bulk is also really useful.  It's not always cheaper, but usually is.  I filled a fairly standard spice jar with organic cinnamon for  69 cents Saturday.  

Right now, find a friend who gardens also.  If you are close to me, I'll give you a couple zucchini and you can make bread. :)
