Its a lot of hard work, conflicts with managers and cashiers, serious commitment.
Pace your self and eventually by next year around this season you will understand couponing. You make couponing your own. The way you organize, process information and deals, along with your social skills dealing is inconveniences, and just how much of your time are you going to put into researching and calculations. Have a buddy system when you first start for support. Don't be afraid to make phone calls to corporates customer service and writing letters to corporate. I will leave you with this, "inch by inch life's a cinch, yard by yard life's hard."

Hi Welcome TO AFC!



Amber!

Welcome To AFC! I'm Melissa your AFC Buddy!

I'm here to get you started on your couponing journey.

I'm sure this community and everything you have seen, heard, and experienced thus far might have you a little overwhelmed; but believe me it will get easier.

The key to your personal success is time, patience, and knowledge.

*Don't Forget RIGHT HERE ON AFC we also offer coupon matchups, guides to shopping and other awesome tips.

Here are the links to the stores you frequent most:

Smiths

Winco

Walgreens

Dollar Store

In addition,here are places where you can print IP's (Internet Printables):

Redplum.com
Smartsource.com
Coupons.com
Couponnetwork.com
Coupons.Walmart.com
Coupons.Target.com
Unilver Coupons
Betty Crocker Coupons
Kellogg's Coupons
Everyday Saver
Box Top For Education Coupons (General Mills)
Shortcuts Coupons
Pillsbury Food Coupons

**You can also search for specific coupons here on AFC by using the Coupon Database.

Or find out the newest and latest coupons in the
Current Coupon Thread**

***Don't Forget most manufactures offer coupons on their website so visiting those sites and signing up for their newsletter will allow you to get special deals and other promotions.

Additionally many people also contact manufactures directly for help and tips and ideas on doing that check out our Company Contact Information Thread***


Another helpful bit of information is a list of the Sale Cycles this way you will know when certain items go on sale.

Sale Cycle List (1)

Sale Cycle List (2)

Finally, having an idea of what to stock up on and a great stock up price is essential for any couponer. Even though we all might have our own price at which we will or won't purchase having an idea is always nice.

Stock Up Price List

I hope the information I've provided will be useful and educational to getting you up to speed on couponing.

Good luck and remember I am here to assist you in anyway I can.

Just contact me by clicking my user name MKRMYLOVE.

Welcome:
My advice if you are a new couponer.
Don't get overwhelmed. Start slowly.
Expect to spend some time getting up to speed, as you would with any new hobby.

Some AFC state forums have active discussions of deals.
Find your state forum here ==> Deals by State - Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup

You can find deals your stores in the stores forums Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup
You can find currently valid coupons listed in the AFC coupon data base: Grocery Coupons- A Full Cup - Coupons
==> Walgreens - Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup

You'll have questions, always ask. We are always happy to answer.
to AFC!

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!

** Wondering what prices you should aim for when stockpiling? Check out this thread! Stock Up Price List

** 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!
