Why should I coupon?
To save money, and give yourself a financial and emotional boost in life.

Where do you get your coupons?
* (FORMERLY) Sunday paper - ie: Orange County Register, LA Times
*  Mailer
* Magazines
* Store weekly ads (or loaded to loyalty card)
* Internet/online (ie: Brand/Company website, Facebook)
* Inside product box
* In store (ie: Catalina, Blinkie or Peelie)

Why "formerly" Sunday Paper?
I understand that you get can a good majority of the best, high value coupons in the Sunday paper, but I want to show my readers that you can save money without having to subscribe to a newspaper.

Where do you find online coupons if I don't want to subscribe to the newspaper? is my favorite! They have up to 400 coupons available for printing AND if you didn't know most coupon websites will allow you to print each coupon twice. On, once you have printed a coupon twice it will appear on the last page of the website and have a “PRINT LIMIT REACHED” notice on the coupon.

New coupons are available at the beginning of each month. Some will expire one month after printing.

Print your coupons on the back of scratch paper. Coupons print 3 per page :)
Put those scratch paper to use!

B1G1 or BOGO = Buy One, Get One Free
B2G1 = Buy Two, Get One Free
BOGO 50% = Buy One, Get One 50% Off
CATALINA = Coupons That Print Along With Your Receipt
FILLER = Item Purchased to Reach a Minimum Total in Order to Get a “Deal”
GC = Gift Card
MM = Money-Maker
OOP = Out of Pocket
WYB = When You Buy

How exactly do you stack coupons?
Some of the coupons you find online or in the paper are manufacturer's coupons. Some stores (ie: CVS, Walgreens) offer their own store coupons, which can be stacked with a manufacturer's coupon (it will say on top of the coupon if it is a STORE coupon or MANUFACTURERS).

For Example:
2-pack Old Spice Body Wash . $3.40
$1 off Old Spice BW (Target Coupon)
$1 off Old Spice BW (Manufacturer Coupon)
Stack the coupons and your total would be: $1.40 or $0.70 each!

What's the difference between “a purchase” and “a transaction”?
A “purchase” is a single item and a “transaction” is an entire order.
Ie: a single transaction can have one or more purchase(s).

Where do you find the plastic holders for your coupons?
The ones I have now used to hold old Pokemon cards. My mom bought them for me at a local Comic book store. I have seen them at Target (Trading cards section near the cash registers), Staples and Amazon :)

What's the best way to organize your coupons?
Coupon organizers can be simple & economical: A standard white envelope or a homemade shoe box with index cards as dividers.

First time couponing... how would I plan my trip?!
* Pick one or two stores; learn as much as you can about the store(s).
* Join the store’s savings card program, if available.
* Access the store’s weekly ad online or in-store.
* Find out about the store’s rain-check policy and senior or military discount program, if applicable to your situation.
* Know the store’s coupon policy, if available, and keep a copy with you.

How often do you update your website?
I try to update as often as I can. I work part-time at a Dermatologist office, run my own business as a Licensed Esthetician, and currently in school to get my Masters in Psychology. PLUS, I'm a full-time Mama to my baby :) I may not update as often as other websites, but I DO NOT re-post the same freebies or sponsored ads.

Are the deals posted legit?
YES! I personally test every deal, promotion, freebie, or coupon before posting to ensure the offer is valid. This means there are no scams or questionable offers on The Saving Asian.

Extreme Couponer? :)
Nope, I don't consider myself an Extreme Couponer. It would frustrate me if I had to spend 2 weeks planning out my grocery trip (which is impossible because the ads change every week).

Save money WITHOUT having to extreme coupon!

Ask yourself these questions before clipping a coupon: 
Will my family use the product?
 Even if I snag it for FREE, will it get used?
Can it be donated?
Don’t save the coupon if you answer NO to all these questions.

Help me start couponing, please!
* Have a folder for your coupons, and organize it by category. It would definitely help you find your coupons a lot quicker. 

* Some cashiers may not know their own store coupon policy, so I recommend printing out store coupon policies for each store you shop at. If you run into any problems with coupons, just show them.

* Always print coupons when they become available. Some companies have a certain limit of coupons available before it's gone!

* Don’t be brand loyal. Try new products you wouldn’t normally use.

* Decide on a grocery budget and bring cash – not a credit card or check. With cash only, there is no temptation to put extra items into the cart.

* Purchase only what is on your list unless you find a freebie.

* Plan to look for unadvertised sales and clearance items. If you have a coupon for an already heavily discounted item, the cost can be FREE or very little.

* Don't stress when it comes to coupons. I still get overwhelmed with all the coupons I have, but in the end, I'm happy with the results I see :)
