Coupons 101: Lesson 3

So yesterday I taught you where to find and how to use matchups. But, what happens when you have other things on your grocery list that aren't on matchups? What happens when you can't find a matchup for your favorite store?

You make your own.

Ok, I know that sounds intimidating, but it's really not that bad. Remember a few days ago when clipping coupons seemed overwhelming? I promise this is not that bad either.

The one thing you're going to want to remember about today's lesson is Hot Coupon World.
Hot Coupon World houses a huge online coupon database. What does that mean for you?
Well, let's say that you were going shopping for some Tide laundry detergent and you didn't see any deals on the matchups. What you would do is go to Hot Coupon World and type in the product you are looking for and Hot Coupon World shows you all the available coupons for that product. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like.

Ok, sorry for the crappy pic, but you get the idea. Search for the product in the search
box  and if there are coupons available they will come up in your search and tell you
 where to get them.
Take note, because not all coupons may be available to you. Coupons are regional. So if you hear of a good deal on a blog that's written in California, you may not be able to score the same sweet deal in Michigan. 

Now, going through the steps is going to take some getting used to. Just like with anything, practice makes perfect. It takes a little time in the beginning, but soon you'll be doing matchups in your head. 

Tomorrow, I'm going to be showing you the world of shopping at drug stores. 
There is good reason for those annoying cards on your key chain.
