If your favorite grocery store does not double or triple coupons, then is it still worth doing all of that clipping? How can you get free items without doubling or tripling? Read on, I have some solutions.

First, be sure that your store really doesn’t double or triple coupons. Sometimes stores will double or triple on certain days, or they will offer coupons in their mailed flyers (but not their in-store flyers) that contain coupons that will allow you to double or triple manufacturer coupons.

Shop stores that have other offers, such as allowing you to combine manufacturer coupons or give you register rewards or rebates. Some stores that do this include Target and Meijer.

Pay more attention to loss leader sales. These are items that the store discounts heavily in order to get you in to the store (they are hoping that you will do all of your shopping there). Often combining a coupon with a loss leader will lead to free items.

Look for coupons that have a high face value. Since you don’t have to worry about doubling or tripling up to a certain amount, a high value coupon becomes even more valuable. Look for coupons that are $1 or more off (for people who have stores that double or triple up to $.99, a $.75 coupon is more valuable.

Focus on purchasing items that you would buy anyway. Even $.50 off something that you normally buy is another $.50 in your pocket.

Contact the store manager or headquarters to respectfully ask for a coupon policy change to allow for doubles or triples. You just might get what you ask for!

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.
