Save Serious Cash with Extreme Couponing: Best Free Printable Coupon Sites
Extreme couponing is all the rage now. The secret is out! You can save serious cash by using coupons. If you've ever seen the show on TLC then you know it can be done. It just takes a bit of organizing, planning and strategy. A few months ago when I first saw Extreme Couponing, I couldn't help but write the hub Save Serious Cash: Secrets of Couponing. I explained in the hub basically what I had learned from the show. I'm still excited and thought I would go a bit further and put up a list of great, free printable coupon sites. There are TONS of these type sites out there and it can be confusing. I made sure to check each of these sites and I feel they are some of the better ones. The sites I have listed are easy to navigate and simple to understand and a great resource for people out there who are truly trying to save money on the grocery bills. Starting out, we have...........
The Krazy Coupon Lady
As seen on TLC's Extreme Couponing show, here is the krazy coupon lady. It's packed full of useful information and resources.You can even download and print a free, stylish binder insert to help organize your coupons in your binder. It has a weekly savings tab, a section for beginners, the printable coupon section and even a freebie tab among others. There is also a drop down section where you can click on your local stores to get current store coupons. Most impressive is the "Lets Shop" tab which is a sort of blog where she posts her shopping results- It's pretty cool because she shows you exactly what she does and how including where the coupons come from.. and you get to see exactly what she got and the savings. Even better, every sunday she posts her strategy for the coming week! What a huge help.... Just do what the krazy coupon lady does!

Coupon Divas gets 10 stars from me! Hands down, other than the krazy coupon lady, its the best one I found. This is an awesome online coupon resource. There is even a free video on how to make a coupon binder. Not only is it clutter free, easy to navigate and an excellent source for free printable coupons but it also has tons of great information, tips and tricks about how to use your coupons. It even has a section for newbies. One of the best things about this site is that they have a section where they have already matched up current manufactures coupons with various store coupons- what a HUGE help that is! Remember, this is how those ladies on the show saved all that money- by matching manufacture coupons and store coupons and Coupon Divas has done the work for you.

As seen on Oprah, Today Show, CNN and more, It definitely is one of the better ones out there according to my research. In addition to the printable coupon section, Coupon Mom has other nifty tools to help you out such as the grocery deals by state section. Here there is a drop box where you can pick the specific store in your state and see all the current sale prices. It's a huge help when you are trying to match coupons to sales and get the most for your dollar. In addition to sales at grocery stores she also has a listing for Wal-Mart and all the main drug stores. She also has a learn to coupon section. If I could give one word for this site, I would say comprehensive. It pretty much covers everything.

I saw the commercial for Coupon Suzy and it sparked my interest. After visiting the site, I have to say it's a pretty good one with the simple, clutter free layout. They have the printable coupons tab plus a section where you can electronically load store savings right on your store savings card if you have a card from one of the stores listed. How cool is that? That will save you time and money.... the cashier will scan your card at checkout as usual and the savings will come off your card all at once. Coupon Suzy has a coupon code and recipe section too.

Another great, clutter free and easy to understand printable coupon site. Here you can enter your zip code and it will help find more coupons in your area and you can also join the community. If you are looking for a fuss free place to go just to print out the current coupons available, this is a good place to go- just print on the printable coupons tab.

Red Plum is one of the better coupon sites. I liked the clutter free look. It has grocery, drug store, restaurant coupons and more. Scrolling down on the home page it has a listing of the most popular current coupons which can be a huge help as well. It has a pretty good tip section too.

Out of the ones I've checked out so far, this one may be the simplest one out there. It looks to be just the printable coupons with clean and simple layout and no other sections which is pretty awesome if you are looking just for the free printable coupons.
Go to Smart Source
This concludes my list of links to some of the best free printable coupon sites. Something to keep in mind when using these sites is before printing the coupons you usually have to register first and then download their printer software but they guarantee the software is safe and many of them assure you that they protect your privacy and do not share your email address. Lots of these sites carry the same coupons because they are the current manufactures coupons that are out right now- however, I hear sometimes there are sites that do carry different coupons than the usual... and if you know of any of these, would LOVE if you could share it in my comments section! It's really just a matter of picking a site that works best for you. The first two are AWESOME and far exceed the others... at least in my opinion- but they are all useful if you wanna print coupons.
Hope you have enjoyed my hub.. Happy Couponing!!
