Where do I get my coupons?
The Sunday paper – For my local readers the St. Louis Post Dispatch is what I buy. It generally has more coupons than Southern Illinoisan. However if you are wanting to have the physical store ads for our local area I suggest picking up 1 Southern Illinoisian, as the St. Louis will not have our store ads in it.
Magazines – a lot of magazines are having coupons inside these days. All You is one that has a quite a bit of coupons every month. However I do not pay or pay very much for magazines, I have gotten a lot of free or very low priced subscriptions online.

How many Sunday papers do I buy?
Typically I purchase 2 Sunday papers, on a rare occasion I buy 4. If I know that it is going to be a super hot week for coupons I will go ahead and get 4 so I can do a little stocking up.
How do I sort my coupons?
Sorting the coupons has been difficult for me. I have been back and forth trying to decide what method I want to use. Right now I still use my zippered binder. I have about a dozen baseball card sleeves in the front and I clip only what I know or am pretty sure I will use. Then I keep all the rest of my inserts in the back of my binder so I can pull them out whenever I need a coupon I haven’t clipped.
