As you can tell by my previous post, I am now kind of addicted to extreme couponing. To me, it’s a really fun game where every time I go shopping for things I need and use, I try to walk out of the store paying as little as possible – and no, this does not mean I resort to shoplifting!
TLC’s show, Extreme Couponing, is really what got me to take my couponing to another level. I’ve been clipping coupons since graduating from college, but thanks to Extreme Couponing, my eyes have been opened to a whole new side of coupning. And, yes, I am a 30 year old man, not an 80 year old woman.
One of the things I don’t like about the Extreme Couponing show is they don’t really give you the nuts and bolts of how to extreme coupon. Instead, they just show other people in the act of cutting $500 off of their grocery bill. Thankfully, there are lots of websites that pick up the slack.
An article on CNN Money (Best Couponing Sites and Apps) written by Paul Keegen, gives a quick list of useful sites for couponers. The sites and apps he lists are:
- GeoQpons (it’s an app, not a site)
This is certainly a pretty all inclusive list, and goes beyond the typical couponing to include restaurants and deals you can get directly to your cell phone.
Here’s a list that I like, that focuses primarily on sites that give advice regarding extreme couponing:
- The Krazy Coupon Lady: My favorite page on this site is the one that shows all the freebies you can get online, most of which I’ve taken full advantage of. They also give great tips on how to slash 50% off of your grocery bill.
- Addicted to Saving: Another great resource that not only points out great deals at places like CVS, but is also a good resource for people just taking up couponing.
- For The Mommas: A little less on how to extreme coupon, but definitely heavy on freebies. Lots of good stuff here.
- SmartSource: This place doesn’t teach you how to extreme coupon, but it gives you all the coupons you need in order to get the job done!
There are plenty of other good resources out there, but I don’t want to overwhelm you!
