So many folks are interested in getting into couponing, but they find that most of the week's deals are based on coupons from previous weeks. That can be frustrating to a newbie who hasn't yet started to collect the coupons from the weekly paper. My  cousin (Baby Jeremy) called me Friday night confused about his shopping experience that I decided to back up a little...let's assume we have a few newbies checking out Penny Pinching & they need some help getting off to a successful start.

I'll be focusing on all you newbies this week - so keep checking for updated tips on how to get started!

Here's a few items that I regularly purchase for free or near free. They are not sales items - these are everyday prices that happen to be low enough for me to successfully use my coupons for a great deal. If you're just starting out & you want to see some of the items that you can purchase regulary for pennies...here's a look!

***Cottonelle Toilet Paper (Kroger) - Priced at $1.19 for a 4-pack of single rolls. You will regulary receive Cottenelle coupons in the Sunday paper for 50¢ off. This will double at Kroger to $1.00. You can also access online coupons for similar savings.                  Final Price = 19¢ for a 4-pack

***Revlon Emery Boards (Kroger) - Priced at 97¢. You will regulary receive $1.00 Revlon coupons specifically for "Revlon Tools or Implements".                                                                                                                                                                                                                Final Price = FREE 

***Schick Razors (Wal*Mart) - Priced at $1.97 for a 10-pack. You will regulary receive $2 Disposable Schick Razor coupons via the Sunday paper inserts.                                                                                                                                                                                               Final Price = FREE

***Bounty Basic Paper Towels (Kroger) - Priced at $1.09 for a single roll of paper towels. Look out for 25¢ Bounty coupons in your Sunday paper. They come in the Proctor & Gamble inserts which don't come out as regulary as Red Plum and Smart Source. This Sunday's paper (3/1) has a P&G insert with the 25¢ Bounty coupon! This will triple at Kroger for a final value of 75¢.                         Final Price = 34¢ for a single roll

You may be able to tell that Kroger is one of my favorite places to shop. They have some terrific sale prices that coupled with coupons offer tremendous savings (No, I am not on Kroger's payroll). They double & triple coupons EVERYDAY. If you have any questions, please leave a comment by clicking on the title of today's post. I'll try to answer as many as possible.

Happy Shopping!
