In order to use coupons you have to know where you can find coupons to use. With the internet you can easily find coupons on places like Coupons.com, Smartsource.com and even stores websites. These sites provide you with similar coupons that you would get in your Sunday paper, but it will not cost you a single cent to get them.

One of the biggest mistakes you can make is not organizing your coupons. If you do not organize your coupons, it will make it that much harder trying to find what coupons you have for what items.

Find Stores that Double and Triple Coupons
