I’ve been buying the Sunday newspaper again, scouting the grocery store for coupons, and saving the ones that come in the mail.
I’ve been amazed, yet again, at how many opportunities for grocery coupons there are out there. Here are 9 places to find coupons, if you’re looking to get started:
Sunday Newspaper 1 of 9This is the most common place to find manufacturer's coupons. The magazine-style inserts come in the Sunday paper almost every week. You can buy a Sunday paper at Dollar Tree all week, choose a discount newspaper subscription or check with your local paper for other options. I have a "shopper guide" delivered every Sunday for free, including store ads and coupon inserts.

In the Mail 2 of 9Don't forget to go through your junk mail — you'll find restaurant coupons, grocery coupons, and more savings. My favorite grocery store sends coupon packets and magazines all the time — meant just for me, based on the purchases I make with my loyalty card. The savings can really add up, so be sure you aren't tossing it!

In Stores 4 of 9Watch for blinky machines, special packages, and sample stations throughout the store for extra coupons. You can also find more savings through coupon machines at the register.
Facebook 5 of 9This has become a huge source of savings for me — freebies, deals, and printable coupons are offered by brands, stores, and restaurants every day. Like your favorites on Facebook, then watch for coupon offers.

Clipping Services 8 of 9It's a bit of a gray area, but coupon clipping services will allow you to select the coupons you want, while someone else does all the hard work.

Coupon Auctions 9 of 9Just like clipping services, many ebay sellers offer coupon lots or even specific coupons. That feels a little more like a coupon purchase to me, though they'll state you are bidding on their time and effort not the coupons themselves.
