Stockpiling to Save: Coupon Clipping Services

Posted by Marianne Thomas | 6/22/2009 06:00:00 AM | , | 2 comments »

If you hadn't already guessed, I'm a *little* excited about this week's Daytona 500 Sale Event at Kroger; there are numerous deals available among the sale + coupon items.

This sale is a great stockpiling opportunity. By using several coupons for the hottest priced items, you can load up your pantry and freezer for pennies with staples like Kraft Barbecue Sauce, Ragu Pasta Sauce, and Oscar Mayer Wieners. (Go see my Kroger ad matchup post here for the full list of sale items.)

But unless you buy numerous newspapers each Sunday (or have very generous neighbors who save their coupons for you), you won't have enough coupons for each of the best sale items to truly stockpile. What's a frugal mom (who doesn't want to spend $15 or more on Sunday newspapers) to do?

Use a coupon clipping service, of course!

Coupon clipping services are incredibly useful during sale events such as the Daytona 500 at Kroger. After looking over your ad and checking your own coupon stash, you can select which coupons you want; the service charges you a small fee (usually $0.05-$0.10) per coupon clipped as well as shipping (First Class or Overnight). The services usually have a speedy turnaround, meaning if you get your ad on a Saturday or Sunday and order your coupons, you'll likely have them by mid-week before the sale is over.

Two coupon clipping services I recommend as worth your time are Coupons and Things by Dede and The Coupon Clippers. Both still have coupons available for the hottest sale items for the Kroger Daytona 500 Sale meaning you can order now and have them by end of week. And remember, these sale events (Daytona, P&G, Mega Sales) at Kroger generally run for (2) weeks; you should have ample time to use your ordered coupons.

I've already ordered a bunch of coupons from Coupons and Things by Dede and I intend to check the stock available from The Coupon Clippers to see if they have any I missed. I'll be sharing with you later this week the details of when they arrived, what I stockpiled, and what the clipped coupons cost versus my savings.

I'm getting that couponing thrill just thinking about how much I'm going to save and stockpile this week!

What are you planning on stockpiling at Kroger this week?

    You're probably already aware, but when I click on any of the links I get a message that says there is 'no such page', etc. Thanks.

    Anon: Thanks for the heads up; I was gone all morning with my kiddos.

    I'll fix it now!
