I have a really simple, basic, beginners question about coupons. I LOVE coupons and use them whenever I can. Most of the ones I use I get in the mail as circulars, or from diaper and formula companies, etc., and occasionally from newspapers and magazines. We can't afford a newspaper subscription at this point just to get the coupons, but would it be worth it, do y'all think, to buy the Sunday paper every week for the coupons?
Where else do people find the really good coupons? I'm looking for ways where I specifically don't have to spend money to get the coupons, if possible. (Except for an issue of the newspaper every week or so if need be.) Is there a goldmine out there that we're missing? I'd like to really start couponing in a way that'll make a difference in our budget.
(FTR, we are very poor right now. We're on food stamps, WIC for another two months, and I try to get assistance wherever I can. Our situation: my husband works full time and makes a couple dollars over minimum wage. Up until two months ago, when he was promoted, he only made minimum wage. We have no savings because of those months of living paycheck to paycheck. We have no insurance aside from my daughter's medicaid, and I'm a SAHM.)
Thanks in advance for any help or advice. :)
