Every week I contact compainies online via their contact form on their website, and give my feedback on their products and often ask if they have any coupons available to send me. I usually tell them what I like about their products and tell a personal story/experience I had with their product. Many companies appreciate the positive feedback and often do mail coupons. I have been very successful with this and keep up on contacting companies every week. I often find that the companies send better coupons than you find in the normal coupon inserts in the Sunday paper. Chobani is a great company to request coupons from and I believe you can do so from them once a month. They sent me (3) 30 cents off coupons and even included a hand-written thank you letter in response to me contacting them. Now that is great customer service!
Okay so if you didn't know how much I love coupons, you will know now.. For Christmas my brother got me this fabulous coupon organizer to store all of my coupons in. Inside of it there are tons of dividers and pre-made label stickers to put on the dividers with categories like bread, milk, laundry detergent, air fresheners etc., so I can keep everything organized. This is made from an eco-friendly fabric and was purchased from GlowGirl Fibers. They make lots of other cool stuff too :)
I don't think a week goes by where I do not use coupons at the grocery store. It has helped my budget tremendously over the years. I figure every little bit helps whether it is 50 cents off or a dollar off a product, it sure adds up after a few trips to the store. I also only use coupons on products I know I will use, and on food I know I will consume. I don't use coupons, just to use them.. unless I can get the product for free or close to free. From contacting coupons online I have also found that some companies even send free product coupons, and those are the best!
