My Favorite Coupon Resources

posted by Andrea | 10/4/2010

If you are anything like me, you LOVE finding great coupons and saving money — especially on groceries!

I know there are plenty of ways you can save money without clipping coupons — but if you have the time and desire, coupons are an excellent way to significantly reduce your weekly and monthly grocery bill. And in case you’re wondering, I save my family over $2,500 each year by clipping coupons…so yes, you need to give it a try!

However, if you are new to coupons, there’s a very good chance you will feel overwhelmed by the shear number of amazing coupon resources and blogs out there in blog-land — there’s just no way you can read them all.

So in an effort so simplify your life {which I’m pretty passionate about} I’ve compiled a list of my top ten favorite coupon blogs; in no particular order. I follow all these wonderful ladies via Twitter, Facebook or through a Feed Reader so all their expert advice is sent right to me every day.

1. Savvy Chic Savings: I love Jolon’s blog because she features many deals and discounts that are specific to the West Michigan area.

2. Saving Addiction: Giselle and Lauren are two women from Hudsonville, MI, who blog about their “addiction to saving” which has helped them shaved 50% off their grocery bill.

3. Sarah’s Deals: Sarah is another Grand Rapids gal who works, raises her children, clips coupons, AND runs her blog!

4. Money Saving Mom: Crystal is one of the bigger coupon bloggers. She offers lots of fun giveaways along with helpful meal planning and budgeting information.

5. A Frugal Friend: Debra writes passionately about helping others to lower their monthly expenses by clipping coupons, living frugally, and creating a budget.

6. Saving Money, Living Life: Jessica and Heather are the two newlywed, coupon-clipping, best friends behind this blog. They offer a great perspective for anyone who might be new to the whole grocery shopping thing!

7. E.E. Endeavors: Erica is an excellent “deal finder” and an awesome blogger who recently wrote this guest post for my blog.

8. Common Sense With Money: Mercedes is a Certified Public Accountant who left the work force to be a stay-at-home mom. She offers lots of helpful advice on budgeting and managing her own personal finances.

9. Greenbacks Gal: Andrea not only shares my name, but also my passion for saving, earning, and growing “green” {her last name is also Green!}

10. My Coupon Codes: This website specialize in online coupon codes — so the next time you’re purchasing something on line, make sure you check their coupon codes first!

A Few Other Coupon Resources:

If you haven’t started using coupons yet, check out a few of these resources and give it a try. Even if you just save $10.00 per week, you’ll have over $500 at the end of the year!

  5. Joann


    Thanks for such a complete list of coupon sites. Love the info.


  6. Cheryl


    I’d like to share my own coupon site if that is okay (because of course it is my favorite 🙂 ). Because I saved so much at CVS I wanted to help others do the same. I started a site with lots of lessons and tips and how-to’s along with the weekly deals and the next week’s ad scan up days before the sales hit so readers can prepare ahead of time. I’d love to have you stop by Simply CVS.

    Do you have a spreadshett that you track your deal and savings that you would be willing to share?


    Andrea Reply:

    Hey Kelly, I actually don’t have a specific spreadsheet that I use to track my saving — b/c that’s just one extra step for me! However, I do have a free spreadsheet that I use to track all my expenses {like groceries} right here. You could download that spread sheet and just add another column, or another worksheet to track your expenses.

    Also, I do have a free printable “rebate tracking form” that you can use to record and keep track of all your rebates — but it’s not an Excel spreadsheet.

    Let me know if either of these documents are what you’re looking for or if you’d prefer something different!

    Thanks so much for listing me as one of your coupon resources – I really appreciate it. Happy New Year!


  9. Kristen @ JoyfullyThriving


    It must be coupon week, as my Saturday link-ups were all about coupons, too! I read many of the same sites as you do. What fun! I also like to read Moneysavingmadness and Hip2Save. Keep up the great work, Andrea!


  10. Sherry


    Wow! Thank you for this great list of coupon resources. I follow Money saving mom, but the others I hadn’t even heard of.


  11. mandi@itscome2this


    WOW! What a wealth of info you just linked up for us … muchas gracias!!!

    @Jubilee – the way to save real money on name brands is to “stack” coupons: find a CVS, Rite Aid, or sometimes Walgreens where you can get store coupons, add your manufacturer coupon, and add in the sale price, and you can save real money.

    A ton of the blogs have Coupon 101 sections, read a few of those to learn the “ropes” and you will be saving in no time.

    The best advice I saw was to start with one store and follow no more than 5 blogs. Otherwise it is overwhelming.

    Andrea, thanks for this list, I’ll be looking it over. In the meantime, I would dearly love to find a place where you can plug in a product that you have a coupon for and select the stores where you shop and it will spit out which store has the best deal. I’d pay for that type of database. Does such an animal exist?



    Andrea Reply:

    I honestly don’t know of any website where you can type in the product or coupon you have and find the store with the best price.
    Maybe we should go into business together and start a website like this. We could be rich!

    I’ll let you know if I hear of anything!

    I just cannot figure out the coupon thing, although everyone in the bloggy world seems so into it. Maybe this list will help me. I’m picky, so it really only helps me to find a coupon for something I ALREADY buy.


  14. Jolon


    Thanks so much for including me. I’m honored!

    In response to Jubilee, if she’s in the West Michigan area, there are GREAT deals on Spartan brand this week. I just did 2 posts yesterday. Items are currently lower than national brands. BUT I agree with you Andrea, using coupons on national brand almost always makes them cheaper.


  15. jubilee


    I am one of those gals that find the whole thing terribly overwhelming. Also, I find that if I just buy the generic/store brand I save more than when I have coupons for the national brands. Any advice about that? Thanks!


    Andrea Reply:

    I totally hear you on being overwhelmed…but I DO think that national brands (on sale with coupons) can be cheaper than store brands.
    I would recommend following one or two of the blogs above and watch as they show you exactly how to get the deals.
    I save SO much money on groceries and almost always by national brands.


  16. Heather


    Wow, we are beyond honored to be among this list of top notch deal finders. Thanks Andrea…keep doin’ what you do–your blog is so helpful. 🙂


  17. Sarah's Deals

    Thank you for the shout out! It’s soooo appreciated! And I love your site too!
