We all know that using coupons is a great way to save money. The trend now is to find ways to take those coupons and make the most of them. In order to do this successfully, you need to really be on top of the current deals, know where to get the best coupons, and figure out what store it is most advantageous to use those coupons in. If you don’t have the time to do this research yourself, don’t despair! Let the Krazy Coupon Lady help you.
My husband and I tend to use a lot of coupons when we go grocery shopping. Even using just a few coupons makes a difference in how much money we end up spending. We have learned that shopping at Vons for groceries has some advantages. If you have the Vons card, you get an automatic discount on a bunch of different items, located in all sections of the store. You don’t even need a coupon in order to take advantage of these deals, because it automatically gets discounted from the original price as you are checking out.
Vons also prints out some coupons along with your receipt. I have noticed that these coupons seem to be selected based on what kinds, or brands, of food or other products that we have purchased in the past. It all happens very automatically. I didn’t have to do any extra research to make this work, which is good, because I don’t really have any time, or interest in, doing research about coupons. My life has gotten incredibly busy in the past few months.
If your life is crazy busy too, then you should let the Krazy Coupon Lady become your researcher. KCL is a great website for both veteran coupon collectors as well as “Coupon Virgins”, as they like to call people who are new to the fine art of couponing. The website was founded by Heather Wheeler and Joanie Demer, who are the authors of a book called “Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey”. They are two stay-at-home moms who are very passionate about empowering women to take control over their financial lives.
Using coupons is one way to help make that happen. Every week, they scour both local and national grocery ads, in order to find the best possible bargains. They match the deals they find with coupons, overlapping promotions, and rebates. This makes it really easy for you to take advantage of the deals.
The Krazy Coupon Lady website has a wealth of information that you can use. You can learn about Coupon Basics, or find out some great ways to better organize your own coupons. You can look for coupons that correspond with a certain store, or view the scrolling screen of current coupons until you find one that interests you. They also have an frequently updated blog that details some of the latest coupons, with advice on how to best use them.
