Where are you getting the coupons? From the Sunday paper or elsewhere?

Yep! Mostly the paper, sometimes from All You magazine. It's a cheap magazine that's sold only at Wal-mart. We get just the Sunday paper. I get coupons from my mom and grandma, too. Sometimes if it's a really big coupon week, it's worth it to buy extra papers. Supposedly (I haven't tried this yet), Dollar General (or some dollar store) sells them for $1, which is cheaper than normal.

It's worth it to cut out coupons and then save them until the big sales. This gal on the Today show also said something I've gotten better about - not being loyal to just 1 brand. If you're ok with trying different brands, it will probably pay off because of different coupons/sales.
