I’ve heard this question several times. The best stores to coupon at are the ones that you enjoy shopping at. Some people believe proximity to their home or work is a prime factor in that decision. Others believe store cleanliness and service are most important. Most “hard core” couponers believe a price-matching store with good coupon policies and “double” coupons are incidentally more profitable.
I don’t want you to change WHERE you shop. I’m only asking you to change HOW you shop. I suggest picking your favorite grocery store (or two), favorite drug store (such as Rite Aid, Walgreens, or CVS), and favorite office supply store (for example OfficeMax, Staples, or Office Depot). If you decide you want to spend more time to shop around for deals later, you can expand your couponing knowledge to these other stores.
Shopping at each store is like playing different games. Each has it’s own set of rules and different rewards. All are fun!
Now, begin collecting your stores weekly advertisements and SAVING them the whole week! You will find posting throughout the sale period as new deals are available and found.
