Deals and Coupons (Part1)

Tonight, I'm making my shopping list on here, to share my 'deal finding' tips.

1.I check Money Saving Mom, Hip2Save, and TotallyTarget for most of my deals throughout the week.
2. Then I check with my coupon binder (which collects my coupons in nice clear pouches for me to see them easily) to make sure I have the coupons I need, and print out the coupons I haven't printed yet.
3. I check my budget. If I don't have the money there, and it isn't a product I absolutely need (usually it isn't), then I don't buy it. It's not a deal if you can't afford it in the first place.
4. I go to the store. And pray all goes smoothly. It's a war zone out there for couponers. Target and CVS have been the most accepting so far for me.

Here goes...
