Check your store's Web site for coupons, too. Many stores offer printable coupons on their Web sites and some will also offer electronic coupons that you can load to your shopper's discount card digitally, via the store's Web site. This is an even easier way to use coupons since you don't need to print them out at all.
Another great place to find good coupons is in grocery stores themselves. Don't forget to look for coupons in the aisles near the products you're shopping for. There are coupon dispensers and displays throughout the grocery store. You'd be surprised how many times you might find an item on sale for $1 ... and a dispenser full of $1 coupons right above it. Take advantage of both. Remember, pairing a $1 coupon with a $1 sale is one of the easiest ways to get groceries for free.
