All frugal shoppers use coupons.  You can find coupons everywhere.  They come in the mail.  They are in magazines and newspapers.  You can find them at the library, or other places where people swap them.  You can find them on websites.  Thrift and coupons go hand-in-hand. Organize your coupons, and use them when you can get the most savings from them.

Always check the websites of the stores where you plan to shop to see if they have any coupons you can print on their site.  Check again at the front of the store. There are often coupons laying around at service desks or at the checkout counters.  Sometimes these are not highly advertised coupons.  If you ask, they will give them to you.
