    I am new to couponing. So new in fact that I am just now researching certain grocery stores that I shop at and their policies on coupons and when the double days for coupons are. I shop at Harris Teeter the most, although Food Lion is the closest to me. I prefer Harris Teeter just because I believe it to be a better grocery store for quality and customer service. What I am wondering is how do you know when the grocery stores have double coupon days? Is it a certain time each month, like a certain week of the month or do they announce it at some point in the circular or Sunday paper?
    Also, do you make your list then go through the circulars and then search for coupons of those brands of products in the paper?? Or do you cut your coupons first? Just trying to figure all of this out! We are a one income family with 2 kids and I am new to staying at home as of the first of this year. I love it, but we are definitely on a budget and our biggest expense (like most) is groceries!! Thank you in advance for any suggestions/advice that you can give me to get started. No advice is too basic…there is A LOT that I do not know I’m sure! LOL

    Hi Katy! Thanks for checking out my site and for your comments/questions. You and several others have commented/emailed me recently with questions about the basics of how to get started with couponing. So, I plan to write a post on this subject (or possibly posts depending on how long winded I get) during this upcoming week.

    You sound a lot like me as far your grocery store preferences. I have a Food Lion one mile from my house; however, most weeks I choose to drive 10 min each way to go to Harris Teeter. I agree that their food quality, customer service and atmosphere is worth the extra effort.

    Harris Teeter doubles coupons every day with a face value up to $.99 (limit 20 coupons per day). For example, your $.75 coupon will double to $1.50 off. When pairing coupons with items that already on sale, you can often get items for free or extremely inexpensive. Even better, about every six weeks they do a “super double coupon” week long promotion in which they will double coupons with a face value up to $1.98. For example, your $1.50 coupon will double to $3.00 off. They will advertise this in their weekly ad.

    Each Wednesday on my site, I create a list of the best deals and coupon matchups (many printable) to help make it super easy for my readers to save big at the grocery store.

    So, my recommendation would be to start collecting your coupons (pick up 1-2 Sunday newspapers each week – a great source of coupons) and just follow along on my site. Once you combine your Sunday newspaper coupons with the printable ones I highlight, it is amazing how much you can lower your grocery bill.

    Good luck and let me know any other questions that you may have :)
