Hi and welcome to AFC! THE best, and most informative, forum on the internet!
Here’s some advice for your couponing journey…

** READ READ READ READ READ READ READ!! And then READ some more! Learn your local store’s coupon policies - GROCERY STORE FORUMS. Print those policies out and keep them with you at all time! You’ll be surprised at how often cashiers and even store managers are unfamiliar with all the intricacies of their own policies!

** Don’t be afraid to ask questions - COUPONING 101!

** START SLOWLY! If you jump in too fast, you’ll get frustrated. PLEASE don’t think that if you don’t build a massive stockpile overnight, that you are a rotten couponer! It takes time and effort! BUT, if you'd like to peek at what your stockpile COULD look like one day, check THESE out!

** Not sure how to begin? Do a David Letterman… Make two TOP TEN LISTS! One for food and one for non-food items that you and your family use on a daily or weekly basis. If your family is a HUGE pasta eater, then noodles and sauce should be on your list. If you have 4 teenage boys, then body wash/soap is a MUST! Walk through your house as you are making your lists. Then, go to the grocery/drug stores WITHOUT BUYING ANYTHING! Take along a pad of paper (or 6) and make notes on current prices for those items on your Top Ten lists. Do this once a week for a few months. Start learning the sales cycles. Start learning the fluctuations in prices and soon you will be able to figure out what your stock-up prices should be. Start your stockpile with items your family will use regularly. Nothing worse than staring at a stockpile with a whole bunch of stuff (gotten for free or really cheap) that no one will EVER use!

** Start clipping your coupons! Sign up for a newspaper delivery – this is THE only way to guarantee that you will receive coupons in the papers you buy. Not all newsstand or drug store papers receive inserts as the inserts will always be placed in subscriber papers first. CALL the newspaper first and make sure of which coupon inserts they carry! Ask about special subscriptions – Sunday or weekend only, discounts for multiple Sunday papers, etc. Start asking your friends and family members for their coupons. You’ll be surprised at how many people just toss them in the garbage – YIKES! **Need complete sets of inserts? No problem! Click COMPLETE INSERTS for LOTS of choices!

MOST OF ALL – HAVE FUN! If you ever have any questions you’d rather not ask in the open forums, click JESSIE to ask me directly! Glad you’re here in the AFC family!

Hi Marty! You have definitely come to the right place to find resources to save money. A couple of good places to start is "Acronyms and Terms used here" at the bottom left of this page so you can figure out our lingo and what the heck we're talking about.Then there's AFC 101 for our rules, and "Where do you begin, my intro to couponing" (just click on the underlined words). There is a wealth of info on this site, if you have any questions or can't find something please feel free ask any one of us. If you like any of the posts or have found them helpful always click on the "Thanks" on the lower right corner of that particular post to show your appreciation. Welcome to the AFC family!

Hi and welcome to AFC! You will love this site and please ask if you have any questions. My advice is to start out small with 1 or 2 stores, so you don't get overwhelmed! Read as much as you can with your favorite store forums and the Daily Posts. Have fun and happy couponing!

Just wanted to personally welcome you to AFC

If you have any specific questions feel free to ask away!
One of the best tools I personally have found is just read everything! I spent the first week or two just reading the forums and learning what was what. Check out the new posts the hot posts and today's posts... Also read the blogs (any of these can be accessed just by clicking the link at the top of the pg)


On a side note in order to send someone a private message (PM) you must have posted 5 posts. So adding your own thoughts or asking a question here or there on topics of interest to you help in that area.

Happy Couponing! And Welcome to the world of saving $ even in times like these!
