I've recently decided to try couponing... Hey, what can I say, the people on TLC's Extreme Couponing make it look so fun (ok, not really fun, but saving all that money sure looks fun!). A friend of mine recently took a couponing class, and she was so excited about it, well, I'm giving it a shot!

There are so many sites for printing coupons, and even direct from a company's site, however, finding the coupons by mail is the tough part. The 'real' coupons. Not all stores will take the printed ones, only the ones put out in magazines or directly from companies.

Technically, it is illegal to sell coupons. You can go to e-bay and buy coupons there, and you'll notice that all of the listings have a note stating that you're not paying for the coupon, only the clipper's time. Some couponers take issue with this, others don't. It's up to you.

Of course, we all knew it wouldn't be long till someone came up with a website specifically for this purpose...

I just happened to stumble across it, haven't used it yet. But, for those of you who would like to dip your toes in the waters of couponing, this may be something you're interested in!

There is a handeling fee for each coupon, and I haven't found a shipping cost listed, so I'm really not sure what that is, if there is any. It has the coupon value, the expiration date, etc. listed under each item. They also state how many coupons of each product they have, so you may choose to 'buy' as many as you'd like!

If anyone does use this site, please let me know how it goes!

I have ordered from The Coupon Clippers. They always have speedy delivery (I live in central FL), and I love being able to get the coupons I want and not necessarily all of the coupons out of the paper (because I never use all of them!). FYI, the customer does pay for the shipping, and you have choices during checkout if you want standard mail, priority mail or even express mail. I would definitely recommend them to people that are looking for specific coupons or even people who don't have time to sit down and cut the coupons out of their local paper (the convenience factor!). It's definitely a worthwhile service to check out.

I've been couponing for several months now. We actually have a small stock pile that I'm pretty proud of. I'm nowhere near as good as the people on Extreme Couponing (yes, it's my guilty pleasure, too), but I save quite a bit with my coupons. I used The Coupon Clippers once when there was a REALLY good sale. I got my coupons in just a few days, plenty of time to still hit the sale and get a great deal.
