I was talking about coupons and deals over the holidays with my family and one of my best friends. I’ve been using coupons for as long as I can remember – my dad used to keep them in a drawer in our kitchen and I’d sometimes go through them to try and help him keep them organized!
A few years ago, my dad gave me a coupon holder and I was ready to roll!
I always laugh because I’m not an extreme couponer (though I wish I was!) but I do have a knack for finding good deals and maximizing savings whenever I can. Like many of the people that you see on Extreme Couponers, I see it as a challenge to get the most bang for my buck!
With the launch of Extreme Couponers: All Stars (which aired on Tuesday night on TLC – and, yes, I did watch!), I thought it was a good idea to bring together all of my online couponing resources to share with you. From cool blogs to a wonderful forum where you can trade coupons, there are lots of great places to find sales!
AND, if you have a resource not listed here, please share it! I love to hear about other resources that can help me save money!
There are some great coupon sites that I read and follow for Canadians!
Grocery Alerts: Helping Canadians Save Money on Groceries is one of my favourites! I’ve linked the “Getting Started” page here though there are great resources all over the site, including the Online Printable Coupons & Canada Shopping Coupons that is constantly being updated!
A few monthes ago a friend of mine recommended Mrs. January to me and I love her blog! There are lots of great tips and links to coupons and she updates constantly! There is also a great forum that is active without being overwhelming! She also has a great list of Canadian Companies that will mail you coupons. I really appreciate her site!
CanadianFreeStuff is a blog I’ve been following for a long time. There is a lot of great information about deals, coupons and contests! There is also a great article here on Top 10 Places to Find Coupons to Fill Your Binder!
RedFlagDeals is one of the first deal sites I ever visited and there is so much on this site! The forum is incredibly active and I learned a lot (and found a lot of great deals) thanks to this site!
SmartCanucks is another site I’ve been following for a long time. It has a very active forum and there are a lot of great coupons and hot deals to be found!
PriceNetwork.ca is another site with lots of information about current Canadian coupons and deals. Many are time-sensitive so you might want to subscribe by email or RSS (I know I have!).
I just ran across Grocery Coupon Free Canada on Facebook and I like it already! Loads of printable coupons that have really practical uses!
Enjoy! Do you know any great sites I haven’t included? Please post and let me know as I would appreciate it!
