There are a variety of resources available to couponers to help them maximize their savings and stay organized. (Definitely bookmark this page because we will be adding updates over the next few weeks!)
We have posted resources that we have personally used and others that we highly recommend!
One of my favorites and a great way to keep track of how much you are spending and saving! It’s a grocery savings spreadsheet that will allow you to plug in your total spent and how much you save. It will show you the percentage of what you saved, as well as a weekly and YTD savings. If you need additional assistance on how to use this spreadsheet, please check out the directions!
Another good Savings Spreadsheet that I found this year is one that I am really LOVING!! Check out this cool FREE savings tracker with The Coupon Project–

You may have heard people mention getting their coupons from clipping services. Coupon Clipping Services can you save you a lot of time. Yes, you may have to pay for the coupons, but you will save yourself a lot of time. Who wants to spend 5 to 10 hours per week cutting and sorting coupons, when you have a busy schedule? We have posted some services that we have personally used, and others that are familiar in the couponing world. If you have any questions about these services, feel free to contact us for an individual reference! Check them out!
