You and Wendy Bailey are making me want to delve deeply into the realm of couponing. Wendy has been sharing some of her "secrets" (websites, blogspots, etc.) to get me started. Do you have a special spot you check to help you find your great deals? Care to share?

moneysavingmom.com is one of the sights i check all the time. I also collect the coupon inserts from Sunday newspaper. We don't get the paper, but Andy's Grandma does; making it handy for me to get extra coupons!

CVS is my main store to buy all of my personal items. If you learn how to "play the game", you will never have to spend much or anything for some of these things. CVS has a great thing going with their extra Bucks program. The key is to keep them going by rolling them over on more ecb items!
Also, if you scan your CVS card at their kiosk it will print out coupons. Keep in mind you can stack manufact, coups with a store coup which makes your deal even sweeter!
