Saving Money is Easy....Kind Of

The amount you are able to save with couponing and other things depends on how much time you are willing to put into finding savings you will actually use on things you already buy.

I am a "bad" money saver. I am not willing to buy generics and compromise taste/quality. I prefer to find coupons for things I would actually buy in the first place, not just use coupons for things I don't necessarily like just because they're cheap.

That said, how does one go about finding coupons for things they want to buy? Your BEST bet is to go directly to the manufacturers website. They will always have the best coupons. If there aren't coupons on their site, email them and tell them how much you like their products. I did this with Huggies and they sent me $5.00 worth of coupons---not too bad for 5 minutes of my time.

Here is how you get coupons for the following places in the mail (to get more coupons, sign up under your maiden and married name and use a couple addresses if possible)



Carter's Coupons (Via email)-

Babies R Us-
---Helpful hint: Sign up for their savings card & Email Newsletter

Similac Formula Checks-

GoodStart Formula Checks-


Nutramigen Sample-

Gymboree Coupons-
Look in Parenting & Parenting Early Years Magazines

Another great site to use is (I have their widget on my page as well) Their coupons change every week and I am always able to find ones I can use through them.
