˚thrifty tip˚ Coupons

Coupons can be a great money saver. I'll admit, I am not an avid food coupon-er (does anyone know some great sites for this? Want to do a guest post?) but I do coupon for most everything else. Many stores take competitor's coupons. Take Joann's Craft store for example. When I went earlier this week, I brought a Micheal's 50% off a single item coupon, a Hancock Fabric 40% off a single item coupon, a Joann's 20% off the entire purchase, and a Joann's 50% off a single item coupon. They used them all. (Even though I had two Joann's coupons, they had different bar codes, so they can apply both.) SWEET! They also price match. So...if they carry the product that is on sale elsewhere, you can bring in the add and get the same price. 

And....a lot of places take competitor coupons and price match. It just takes a little extra time to search them out online.  

And don't forget those promo codes that are out there. You can really save a lot by coupon-ing.


  1. I like and They both post prolifically, though, so if you don't stay on top of it, your reader has 500 unread posts by the end of the week.

    I, too, love a good deal. Good for you for using all those coupons at Joann's--I get anxious about people telling me no for some reason, so I rarely try to price match or use competitors' coupons.

  2. One of our readers is having trouble posting comments, but she loves the website It is based in Utah but has a lot of tips that could be used anywhere! Thanks for the tip Lacey!
