Couponing Made Easy: Where The Matchups Are Done For You!

by Julie on January 6, 2011 · 4 comments

In my post about slashing my grocery bill, I shared that the way to save major money is to match coupons with store sales. That sounds simple but, the truth is, it’s a lot of work. Coupons don’t just come in the Sunday circulars anymore. They can be found on internet coupon sites, in magazines, and on Facebook pages, just to name a few. Then there comes the work of pairing those coupons with sales at grocery stores, discount stores, and drug stores. No wonder many people find it so overwhelming.
The good news is that the internet has made all of this so much easier. There are tons of great blogs and websites out there that do all the heavy lifting for you. And while some of them are paid services, most are completely free. They are just Family CEOs like you and me who want to share what they’ve learned and are finding and they will make your life so much easier.
First let me give a shout out to Kansas City Mamas and Penny Pinchin’ Mom. These two are bloggers in my neck of the woods and they share a ton of great info, including weekly coupon matchups at Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and local groceries in my area. These two have saved me a ton of money over the last few months.
You can check out these two for their national chain matchups but, unless you live in the KC area, they won’t be much help for your local grocery stores. Here are some places where you might be able to find bloggers in your area who will blog about things that will help you out:
There is a learning curve associated with couponing, and it does take a little time and effort, but these bloggers make it so much easier.
If you have a good coupon resource, please let us know in the comments.
Note: I'm no longer adding new posts to The Family CEO. I am, however, writing at Creating This Life, where we talk about home, books, travel, and other life stuff.

i am new to the major couponing deal. i have always used coupons just not on a large scale. i need help. lol…. big time….this is the first website that i found. i am hoping that i might be able to get some tips on where to get started. i guess one other thing i should mention is that i live in north carolina, so there are not many stores here in my area that double coupons. any ideas would be most welcome. thanks

Hi Darlene. Welcome, and thanks for your comment. Go slow with couponing. It takes some time to get the hang of things. As far as store matchups, go to, click on Store Deals and then click on Regional Store Deals. Find the store(s) where you shop and click on those and you will see some coupon matchups for those stores. They don’t have to double coupons. You can get great deals just by combining a store sale with a coupon.

Good luck! And let me know if you have more questions.

I like she does a great job on matchups and has a lot of valuable info including matchups for most of the major chains.
