I'm what you call a lazy couponer. I'll print a coupon or do a specific deal if it's easy, but that's about it. I used to be pretty hardcore but once I mastered it I decided to take a step back and direct my time and attention to other interests (ie blogging, sample sales, penny hunting, etc.) as there are only so many hours in the day when you're a stay at home mom. Back in the day, I would walk into CVS and leave with them paying me to take home $100+ in beauty/personal care products. It was before couponing was mainstream so cashiers didn't know what hit them LOL. Most people don't realize that those extreme couponers spend countless hours strategizing and collecting coupons - only to stockpile excess household products that they're probably never need or use. These days I prefer to hoard designer shoes rather than toilet paper.

Now I do couponing-lite. One of my new favorite sites for coupons is Groupon. I mean we all know about Groupon for their amazing deals when you need a cheap manicure or a kids activity, but on Groupon Coupons you can find useful online codes or in-store printable coupons for stores you shop everyday.
It's totally free - just click thru to you favorite store and loads of coupons pop up. Easy peasy! Right now they have a 20% off Bed Bath & Beyond coupon - and you know you can always use another one of those! Kohls also has printable coupons on Groupon - and that store has some killer deals.
Next time before you head out to shop (or go online) be sure to stop by Groupon to check out their current coupons. Today they have 65,938 free coupons at 10,287 stores. That's pretty amazing!
