It is wonderful to have you on AFC, Laura! Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you out and learn your way around AFC.
I think your best bet of advice is to read as much as you can on AFC. Start at AFC 101 and then move on to your favorite stores.

Here are some useful tips when looking around AFC:

Your Username ~ click it to go to your personal profile page

Settings ~ click this to go to your control panel, settings, & options.

Inbox ~ this takes you to your Private Message page (in-house email).

Update ~ this only appears when you have a new message on your profile page or a new social group invite

Logout ~ Logs you out of AFC (as if you ever want to )!

At the bottom of every page, on the left hand side you will find "Acronyms and Terms used here". If you see a term or abbreviation you are not sure about, you can click that and it will help you find what you need to know.

To see all the new chatter that is coming in for all the forums, you can click "Forum" (this is found at the top of the page, on the left-hand side). When you click this, a little box will scroll down and give you a little list of items to choose from. Click "New Posts" and it will show all the newest threads.

Giving/Receiving "Thanks" or "Rep" is a fun feature here at AFC. If you see a post that has helped you in any way, you can click the "Thanks" button (located at the bottom right of each post) this will insert your username at the bottom of their post. This lets them know you appreciate their post. OR If you would like, you can click the "Rep" button (just to the left of ‘thanks’ button). When clicking this you're given the opportunity to leave a small comment, telling the poster what you appreciate. They're both a way to show your appreciation, but you can only do one or the other..not both. So, when you see someone's username listed under your post..you'll know you've been "Thank'd" and your post is much appreciated.

***To hopefully help you on your way to finding all those great deals you came here to find, here is a link to a store you shop:
Walmart forums***


Good luck & again...It is great to have you!

Glad to have you here, you're gonna love AFC! There's tons of great info (and even greater people!) here but it's easy to get overwhelmed when you first start to use coupons. I suggest reading all the stickies (located at the top of each page) in the forums that you frequent. Also, if you haven't already, checking out the following links may help answer some FAQ's:

AFC 101 - Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup
Couponing 101 - Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup
Acronyms & Abbreviations- A Full Cup - Coupons

If you have a question and can't find an answer, don't be afraid to ask for help!

Cry for Help! - Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup

Happy shopping!!
