Help Sign Newbie needs a mentor...:-)

Ok...I have been doing a lot of reading here and am learning (I think)! But would love to have an experienced couponer help me out for a few weeks or so...purty please Since I have just started the only inserts I have are 11/13 RP and SS, and 11/20 SS. The stores that I have available to shop at are Market Basket, Shaws, Walmart, Rite Aid, Walgreens, CVS and Price Chopper. I really want to get the hang of this but I think I am getting overwhelmed. Hubby says to go for it so I am. My printer has been working feverishly printing off coupons that I think I will need at some point. My eyes hurt from reading and I am drinking way too much coffee reading the posts here....LOL
So...if anyone can take me under their wing and guide me along I would be soooo appreciative!

I've not been doing this long enough to mentor, but I'll invite you over to my favorite forum, CVS. Loads of helpful folks and clear, precise scenarios that are better than training wheels. There's even a multi-transaction scenario that one ever-helpful AFCer put up that is like CVS Couponing for Dummies. Follow it and come away with little out of pocket and $ to spend on your next visit.

Don't quit. You'll get the hang of it.

I recommend starting with one store, getting to know it's do's & don'ts and then moving on to another store. When I started in May of this year, I tried to learn CVS, Wags, & Kroger all at the same time. I ended up mixing the policies around and got so confused. . Take your time & it will start to pay off.

My best advice is to read, read, read, read, read. And ask a lot of questions. We are all here to help you as much as possible. Couponing is not something you learn overnight! We were all confused when we first began too. Take it slowly and as a PP posted, learn one store at a time until you are comfortable with it's policies and then move on to another store.

Totally OCD. Luckily my DH is building me new stockpile shelves so I can more easily rearrange and reorganize my goodies!

reading different blogs, here on a full cup, couponmom.com, facebook posts from bloggers, etc is very helpful. I have been couponing since living on my own 10 years ago. I do not have any of the stores you mentioned except Wal-Mart. I can't get into the CVS and Walgreen's things because the rewards dont last long and I try to only go shopping every two weeks with gas the way it is and funds. ANy questions feel free to ask.
