Sunday Paper with Walgreens ad or the their website. Look for the Weekly Ad, after tying in your zip, it should pop up...you can see items for sale with RR highlighted in yellow or red...I forget which.

do you get the sunday paper? it's a great resource...

Good luck and happy hunting!

Just moved out of state from CA and I totally understand...no double coupons in CA for the most part...I have found Walgreens to have some really great deals which _kinda_ is like double coupons...for example:

A bar of soap is $2, if you buy it, you get back a Register Reward (coupon) for $2 good for anything in the store on your next purchase making the original bar of soap "free" since you're using your $2 RR off on toilet paper (lets say). to make it an even BETTER deal is if you get a coupon for that bar of soap from the Sunday paper for $.75 off! Soooo:

Bar of soap: $2.00
Coupon: -$0.75
Total out of pocket: $1.25
But get a Register Reward for $2 (kinda like making your money back PLUS $.75) for use on another item that hopefully you have another coupon for so your $2RR becomes $2RR Plus whatever your new coupons is for...

The challenge is to buy an item that:
1) Is on sale
2) Offers a RR
3) You have a coupon for

Sounds super challenging but it really works...it's how I get all my laundry soap and toothpaste and various items for free.

I HOPE that made sense emoticon

(took me a while to get it)

Message me if you'd like

I always have my coupons with me in one way or another. Mostly I carry them in the store with me. But sometimes they are in the trunk of my car. There have been times when I have gone into a store not thinking I need my coupons. But then I will see something or my kids or mother or my friend will need something and I can't help saying " I have a coupon for that". I have even given a coupon out to a complete stranger. I keep most coupons I find even if its not a product I use. Someone I know might use it and I like saving money for them too. It doesn't make me anxious though.

search for coupon bloggers in your area. One in California is Queen of saving green. Also, go THe Krazy Coupon Lady, penny pinching mom, mojosavings is another good one. Walmart and Target don't double but everyone has those stores and all of the bloggers list deals from there... good luck

I could never understand how that was possible on these shows. Unless here in Southern California we were really getting ripped off. Witch we are in other ways though. But now I know that these stores change there policies to let this happen.

How do you find bloggers in my area? This would be interesting to get the most out of my trips. I hate wasting gas.

Thank you, everyone.

I suggest you search for bloggers that live/shop in your area as they will help you get the most out of your coupons. They will do the sales matchup for you which makes it very easy to find the good deals. Very few people will ever do what those on the show do as its unrealistic. Most of those stores change their policies just for the taping of the show and have admitted doing such.

I am new to couponing and am happy when I get the buy one get one free or two dollars off something. But most coupons are not that good that I find. In Southern California, I don't know any store that doubles your coupons. I know they did years years ago but not anymore. What kind of deals do you get where you live. When I watch the show Extreme couponing I noticed they get to double there coupons where they live. I don't think I could ever get six hundred dollars worth of items for twenty-five dollars. Do you get these deals? Please tell me how you do this? And whats the app for the iphone for price comparisons?
