How did I find them? The question struck me as silly, it was like asking how I knew to breathe. My eye is always out for a coupon. But not just any coupon, one that is for a product or service I already plan to use or try. Otherwise, if I let coupons dictate my spending, I'll find I'm spending more and not being frugal.
So, where do I commonly find coupons:
- the back of grocery store receipts (that is where I found the buy a pair of shoes and get a free pair of Smart Wool socks at Morgan's Shoes);
- the Bucky Book;
- bottom of register receipts (common at Morgan's Shoes); and
- magazines and coupon packs that arrive in the mail (great for hair cut coupons).
I have a special spot on the kitchen counter, near my notebook where I make lists of things we need, where the coupons reside. Whenever I pull out my notebook to make a list, the coupons are immediately at hand.
What about you, where is your favorite source for coupons?
