Coupons can save you a lot of money at the grocery store. But did you know that you can find more coupons in the actual grocery store itself sometimes in surprising places? Here are four area of the grocery store where you can get even more coupons.

At the entrance

When you enter the grocery store, check the store flyer. Not only will it give you a list of sale items, but very often you will find coupons that will double or triple your manufacturer coupons or give you a discount on other products.

In the aisles

You may have heard of “blinkies.” These are coupons that are dispensed out of machines with blinking lights. They are usually placed near the products themselves for easy savings. Usually they cannot be doubled or tripled.

On the shelves

There are two places to find coupons on the shelves. The first is on the products themselves. These are coupons that can be peeled off and used right away (there may also be coupons in the packaging as well). So look around at various brands of your item when you shop.

You can also often find stray coupons just laying on the shelves. Very often fellow couponers will leave extra coupons or coupons for products they don’t need just laying on the shelves near the products. Call this ROAC (random acts of coupons).

At the register

The register can provide you with coupons in one of two ways. First, you can get coupons that print out at the register during checkout. Often these are for competing products from the ones you purchased, so it helps if you aren’t brand loyal.

Happy hunting!

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.
