Saving money on things you need

I just finished a new article on Squidoo about coupons and coupon codes!

I decided to write this one because I know a lot of people who need to save more money and I have been able to save a lot of money using coupons. My average trips to the grocery store I save about 70% - without buying stuff that we need to store.  I always use coupons for big purchases like furniture and tools too (and combine them with a sale when we have time to wait for a sale). There are a few special sites that I trust and recommend which you will find in that article .

It does not have to be time consuming to save some money- I spend less than 30 minutes per week actually looking for coupons and organizing them and when we are in the store I don't spend any longer than I used to (ok, maybe 5 seconds per item while I pull the coupon our of the book- but there is no hunting for them) when I am shopping.

I do plan on writing a follow up coupon article showing a few different ways to organize them.  My method is not the only one but it works great if you want to save a lot with minimal effort :)
