Friends, people are clipping coupons now more than ever. . For years clipping coupons from the Sunday paper was the best avenue to collect them. Recently, the popularity of online coupon sites has sky rocketed. Is this a sign of the times, possibly? I like to think we are just becoming more savvy shoppers. A savvy shopper looks for avenues to save across all fronts.

The most popular online coupon in May 2009 offered 40 cents off Skippy Peanut Butter and saved cost-conscious US consumers a total of $1,178, according to a new report from coupon aggregator RetailMeNot.com, which said coupons for all products were valued at nearly $1 million. That is quite a statement. It means that people across the board are looking for ways to save with coupons. TheBag.com offers manufacture as well as local coupons that can add up to quite a bit of savings. Match them up with the weekly circulars for added savings.. Continue to clip coupons from the Sunday paper as well. It has been estimated that only 3% of the population use coupons on a regular basis. Let us see if we can increase that number by taking advantages of the resources available to us. It;s all about saving money. Click here to be on your way to saving more. For now happy shopping!
