I only coupon at target, since you can use their store coupon (which you can print off their website) and combine it with a manufacturer coupon for double the savings!

Really?! So if you had a "target $1 coupon" and a $3 manufacture coupon you could get $4 off? Good to know!!

There are many stores that will combine their coupons with manufacturer coupons.

Go here: http://www.thekrazycouponlady.com Look at the tab Beginners. It's a great guide to how to start couponing.

Oh, also Youtube has TONS of how to shop certain store videos. Krazy Coupon Lady site has them too. If you look under the specific stores they use. So if you have Target, Kroger, and CVS in your area look for video tutorials on how to shop with coupons there. I found that to be the best way for me to learn. NO ONE I knew used coupons...I just decided to try it out one day....so I researched myself.

Oh, and a plug for The Krazy Coupon Lady's book "Pick Another Check-out Lane Honey!" is really good. I read it after a year of couponing and I still learned a few new things.

A Full Cup is also a good resource. I coupon at Target, for reasons already mentioned, as well as Kmart, because they double (a promotion that lasts only until April, and has a ton of restrictions, but I've made it work for me so far)

Krazy Coupon Lady has coupon databases of what coupons are active and where to find them.
