The Frugal Coupon Mom is in the news again. Many moms have now set up their own coupon blogs and websites and blogs on how to become frugal. These blogs teach consumers how to shop smart. Everyone could use a little extra financial help during this economy, and these sites help other moms (and dads) save money on groceries and other items. Many shoppers report that they have shaved upwards of 75% off their grocery bills by using the tips contained in these blogs and websites.

Some times we purchase coupon book from a salesperson as we get it for a cheaper rate then for merchandise and services valued at thousands of dollars. When you buy it form salesman, make sure before you start clipping your way to savings, though, you’ll get the deal promised.

Literal Bears I’m Jealous Of is named to be the best entertaining website of all time. This website was started as Bears I’m Jealous Of which was totally dedicated to hairy men. The website is later turned into Literal Bears I’m Jealous Of with the aim to commemorate all great bears in literature.

I found out through my recent use of the books, how the hotel officeletter books work. In Florida, as in most states, the weekend is high-volume time, so most of the hotels do not accept coupons on the weekend. Others state that they do, but that there is a higher rate on the weekend. Ten dollars more for a weekend night seemed to be the going rate for those hotels allowing weekend stays. Also, a large number of the hotels do not accept the coupons at all on a holiday weekend.

Use your coupons when the time is right. Don’t use a coupon just because you have one. Just because you have a coupon, doesn’t mean you’re getting the item at a great price. Wait until the item goes on sale and then buy it. Just yesterday, a specific brand of deodorant went on sale 10 for $10. I know that in this store I only have to buy one and I can get if for $1. I also had a coupon for 50 cents off the same item, which the store doubled, so I ended up getting the stick of deodorant for free. That’s awesome.

There is not much worse than getting very excited over all the deals that you see in your ad and have combined with coupons, only to find none of the products on the store shelves. You must go coupon shopping early especially if you have 10 coupons instead of one. There is a much better chance of your store having 10 Kraft cheeses on the day the ad comes out, if they are on sale, rather than later in the week.
