If you're new to couponoing then you know, where there is a holiday there is no coupons in the Sunday paper. But that doesn't mean there are not deals or nothing to do.
When I don't have new coupons to purchase here is what I typically do:
- Check out the deals
As I mentioned before the deals and sales are still going on. I go over to my favorite couponing web sites and Instagram and see what the heavyweights are scoring.
- Sort my coupons
My coupon envelope always gets unorganized when I'm shopping or in my bottomless purse. I use the holiday weekends to throw away old coupons and organizing my coupons by item (health, beauty, food etc)
- Print off more coupons
I also use this time to search the web for coupons on products I use. I go straight to the company's website (coupons are usually advertised at the very bottom of the website) or I search Google i.e. "Sprite Coupons"
- Organizing my stockpile
Did you know toothpaste expires? I say this because toothpaste is the number one item couponer's start off stockpiling, it's free almost every week but how much toothpaste can you use? I typically take my overstock to my family's house. Then I move all the old items to the front just like the store do it.
