All You Magazine
(not only do you get to clip the coupons out of the actual monthly magazine, you can print them off the web site as well)
2. Printing coupons from coupon web sights (Click the site to link to them)
Common Kindness (this is great for whole foods)
Grocery Coupon Cart
Cellfire (this is both a printer and a reward card loader)
Mommy Saves Big

How do I get the best out of my coupons?
Make sure you use them before their expiration date. Create a coupon binder or some form of organization for your coupons. It is always better to combine them with an in store sale.
