Calling all couponers! Now that you’ve got couponing under your belt, maybe it’s time to get a website started. No, I’m not suggesting you start the next FaceBook or Google; I mean something as simple as a review website–reviews of products you’ve purchased, or items your family and friends have. I’d like to introduce you to Pro Review Theme.
I’ve purchased and installed Pro Review Theme and found it easy to use. It’s perfect for posting links to your favorite items on Amazon.com.

Manufacturers issue coupons so that you’ll be more likely to buy their products or to entice you to try a new product line. Stores issue coupons to increase sales of a particular item or group of items.
First, let’s understand some coupon basics:
Where do coupons come from? Coupons basically originate from 2 different places:
- the manufacturers that make products
- the stores that sell the products
Does my grocery store loose money if I use coupons? No, they don’t. You’ll notice on these manufacturer’s coupons that stores are reimbursed the face value of the coupon plus an additional fee for the inconvenience of accepting them. Read more
It was a chilly March, if I recall correctly. I hadn’t been a big couponer back then, but I had been getting started. I had a 3-ring binder with several weekly coupon inserts that had barely been touched. Who knew I would stumble in something big…very, very big!
I had just picked up the latest Meijer weekly ad, and noticed a very nice General Mills/Betty Crocker promotion going on–specifically, “Buy any 10, get $10 back” on specifically marked items. Everything listed was at least $1.50 or more, so it wasn’t going to be as easy as pie. However, I knew in the back of my mind that I had coupons for many of the items listed.

Let’s talk about utilizing coupons in the fullest measure. Coupons are a dime a dozen these days. You can find or print coupons within minutes from just about any computer. They’re in the mailbox every week. You’ll find them falling out of your newspaper on Sunday. So, with so many coupons, everything must be a bargain, right? Absolutely not! Coupons are actually a marketing tool to advertise to a part of your brain that makes you think you are getting a deal that nobody else can get. If you are new to couponing, you are more likely to buy something with a coupon than you would buy something that is on sale the same amount.
