    Beginners Guide

    When starting out couponing, there are lots of online programs and links you want to sign up for and know about to catch the deals in time. Lots of time the freebies & coupons are for members of a certain club (Kraft First Taste is an example) and if you are not members you will miss out on great deals! For you beginning out there, or those of you that are veterans but unaware of some of these cool offers, I have compiled the below post the help you step out into the frugal world and become a part of all the fun!

    STEP ONE:

    Create an Email Address for FREE: What is saving money if you are having to pay for an email address to get all the deals? It is a good idea to have a “DEAL” email address to sign up for all of the clubs and programs with. That way all the spam that may be associated with signing up for these things does not bog down your personal account. You can sign up FOR FREE with YahooGmail, & AOL for an e-mail account. Beginning

    STEP TWO:

    Start signing up! Here is a list a brief description of things I suggest signing up for:
