using coupons
 
does anyone know any links for teaching people to use coupons effectively. i have our food budget about as low as i can get it at 200 a month for 2 adults and a 2 year old (baby breastfeeds) and need to work on our toiletries and household stuff. any ideas or links suggestions would be helpful :)

couponmom.com
You have to sign up but it is free. It matches sales to Sunday coupons.

have you thought of switching to cloth instead?

i tired couponing for paper items and then gave up because it still took money and alot of my time.

the krazy coupon lady is also a good one

We do use a lot of cloth. Diapers, mama cloth for me. I use unpaper towels. I plan to go nopoo when my shampoo is gone. My dh uses paper towels though and we still need dish soap, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, trash bags, ect.

I love hip2save...she posts lots of great deals on the stuff you mentioned. Do you have a cvs near you? They are currently running nice deals on paper towels, dish soap, etc.

as far as dish soap they usually have 50cent off coupons for dawn. then it usually goes on sale for 99 cents, making it 50 cents a bottle. if you sing up with p&g they can give you samples and coupons through the mail. there are also recipes floating around for homemade laundry detergent which comes to about 2 cents a load. there are often good deals on toothpaste and deodorant. i suggest stocking up when you can. have you thought about homemade cleaning supplies? most times they are also non toxic and very cheap!

props for the mama cloth! im trying to slowly transition when budget allows!
