Everyone should find coupon books in their community. I am talking about those books that different organizations are selling as a fundraiser. We bought one last year with over $6,000 in coupons for $39.95 and I tracked most of our discounts in the back. We saved more than $150. Just last week we had a tire blow-out and we used a 50% off for a computer alignment. That saved us $40. If you live in Texas, go to this site and click on your area to see what coupons are being offered. The site will also tell you which organizations will benefit from your purchase.
Also, in the fall, we bought a small discount card from one of the soccer clubs in town. It cost $5 and has coupons for 3 B1G1 ice cream at Maggie Moo's, 3 B1G1 Freebird's, 3 free kid's meals at Texas Roadhouse, 3 B1G1 at Chicken Express, 3 buy up to 12 peproni rolls at Double Daves and get the same free, and many more.
If you live in a college town, check the local university bookstores at the beginning of each semester. When I was a student, we went into the bookstores just to stock up on these free coupon books. I am not sure if they are still distributed here or not.
