If you’ve been flipping through your Sunday Red Plum insert or checking out Smartsource’s online coupons, but have still been unable to find the coupons you’re looking for, you may simply be searching at the wrong time of the month.

Manufacturers usually release their best coupons, including savings on brand names and grocery items, at the very beginning of the month so be sure to snag a copy of the newspaper on every first Sunday of the month. The same also goes for online printable coupons.  Websites like Coupons.com and SmartSource come out with their best coupons on the first of the month. Manufacturers issue print limits on their coupons so it’s important to print out the ones you want before they’re all gone.

Here are some additional tips to keep you clipping the top money-savers:

  • Print the same coupon more than once by using multiple computers.
  • Visit a coffee shop on a Sunday afternoon (particularly the first Sunday) and “clean up” the newspaper inserts that have been left behind.
  • If you find a high-value coupon (such as a $5-10 dog food coupon or the highly-coveted Covergirl $8/2 deal released last month), purchase a second copy of the newspaper—these savings are definitely worth the $1.50 investment cost of buying another newspaper, plus you’ll have doubles of all the other coupons!
  • Trade coupons with a friend so both of you can score coupons that you’ll use on needed products.

If you follow these tips and stock up on coupons at the beginning of each month, you’ll always have coupons for your favorite brands and products!

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.
