How do I get my Coupon Stockpile Going?
There are several ways to get stockpiles of coupons and you use any of the methods that I suggest below and see which ones work the best for you.
First off there three kinds of Sunday Inserts in your Sunday Papers there is the Proctor and Gamble (P & G)( this is not usually in every Sunday paper but usually once a month). Then the two staples are Valassis (V) and Smart Source (SS).
There are also great sites that can you tell on the Thursday before what coupons are going to be coming out on Sunday! The site I use most often is Taylortown Preview, they will have the latest coupons posted usually by noon on Thursday before they come out.
*Like most people you can subscribe to your local paper or a lot of my friends will ONLY Get a subscription the Sunday edition of the paper simply to get the coupons. You can also grab a couple of papers from your local store, gas station or newsstand.
*You can go in the evenings and see if stores or gas stations that still have Sunday Papers left will sell you the rest of the papers to you at a discount so you can get a nice stockpile of that week’s coupons.
*Visit your local Recycling center. Some recycling centers will allow you to visit their sites on Monday to pull Sunday inserts from the papers they get, you will need to call your local recycling center and see what their policies are.
*Ask friends and families, neighbors and church members that if they do not use their Sunday coupons if they can stockpile them for you and you can stop by and pick them up once a week or every two weeks.
*There are also great services online that will send you whatever coupons you want out of the Sunday paper already clipped and ready to for you! All you have to pay is a small handling fee usually $.05 per coupon plus shipping fees, one of these sites I have used and highly recommend is The Coupon Master
*Blinkies: Pull these coupons from the “blinking” machines at the grocery store relies: Coupons that are stuck to the actual product
*Tearpads: Pads of coupons typically found on special displays at the store, tear off one or two or three…
*Winetags: Coupons that hang on the neck of a bottle of wine, they may or may not require a purchase of wine to use the coupon
*Home Mailers: Coupons that are sent directly to your mailbox

Don’t forget to look at the packages for coupons, these include:
- Removable labels on canned foods and jars.
- Lids of cans or bottle caps.
- Cardboard covers on frozen foods.
- On the paper which wraps around soaps and candy.
- Tiny folded coupons within the product, such as in dog foods.

A lot of times the companies will send you freebies and or coupons just for the asking.
