Extreme Couponing: The Secret is Using Catalina Coupons

How is it that we clip and clip our coupons and never approach getting $600 worth of groceries for less than $3 like the ladies on the Extreme Couponing show do? It is simple. They have a secret weapon. If you notice closely, those extreme couponing discounts happen when the shopper stocks up on Catalinas and hands them over in one trip.

I tried this out myself this month. I concentrated on getting all of the awesome Catalina deals and “rolling” them over. In two weeks of shopping, we got more than $200 worth of groceries at one store for the total cost of $13.94. I know that is less of a savings than the lady on the show got, but hey, I was impressed, especially since I’m not on television.

The Catalina coupons were the big secret of my success. I got multiple Catalinas for $10 off and $25 my next order. I always wondered how the extreme couponers or super savers could pay so little for items that don’t even typically offer coupons. Catalinas are the answer.

For all of those items that don’t typically have coupons, such as fresh produce or organic brands, the Catalinas act like cash. You can apply that $10 off toward a bag or two of oranges or potatoes, let’s say, to get them for free.

What are these things and how can you get them for free? You know those little pieces of paper that print out at the cash register? Most people ignore them. I’ve even found a few high value ones sitting on the grocery floor or in the parking lot.

These coupons are usually triggered by the items that you buy. For example, if you spend a specific dollar amount on certain products or a specific number of select products, you’ll qualify for money off of your next order.

Sometimes these offers are advertised and sometimes they aren’t. Often, you have to do a little research to find them.

When they are advertised, you may see notices in your local store flyer, on a sign hanging in the grocery store itself or in a small tag on a shelf.

To find the unadvertised opportunities, you’ll have to do your research and get insider information from people who have found them. Going forward, I’ll be paying careful attention to these offers and passing on that information to you. This means that you can visit FreeCoupons.com to find the best grocery store catalina deals.

Here are some tips for using Catalinas for extreme couponing:

  • Do your research to find the products that trigger the offers
  • Use multiple coupons on the trigger products to get them for as little as possible
  • Make multiple trips through the checkout line to score as many of the offers as you can.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
