Tips from Super Coupon Queen Jill Cataldo

Last year I had a revelation of sorts. I realized that one should never pay full price for anything. That attitude combined with an eye for coupons, specials, Groupons and other sites like helped me save at least $2,283.41 in 2011. Holla!

A couple of tips....before you buy anything online, look to see if you can find any coupons. RetailMeNot is awesome for having coupon codes for free shipping, 10-20% off, etc. I did this the other day when I was buying a wedding gift at Crate and Barrel, and was able to save $15!

Also, check to see if your grocery store allows you to pre-load coupons onto a shopping card. For example, I shop at Dominicks, so every week before I go, I get online and load coupons onto the card. That means a weekly savings of $20-$30, plus I don't have to annoy the people behind me with dozens of coupons.

I also had the privilege of interviewing Super Coupon Queen Jill Cataldo for a grad school project last quarter, and she has some great tips on how to save on food and toiletries. Check it out!
