I'm not a fan of cutting out coupons from the newspaper each week, but occasionally the mood strikes me and I cut them out. I'm always amazed at the amount that I save at the cash register-- so why don't I do it more often?
In the past several months, I have gotten into the habit of checking out free coupon sites. I recently found a coupon for a free appetizer at a local restaurant by searching for free coupons. I just discovered a new coupon site: CouponChief. CouponChief has coupon codes for online purchases. So before you make a purchase online, check to see if there are any coupons available for the items you plan to purchase.
The nice thing about CouponChief is that it keeps track of the coupons you've used or searched for in the past. You can find them easily again. There's a weekly newsletter to keep you updated on the deals.
This week's special has an online deal at Target: Spend $50 and get $5 off.
