How to make money couponing

Many people discuss "money making" items when shopping. This refers to items that generally have additional benefits "store cash" that equates to more than the cost of the item.

So how do you make money couponing?

There are a few ways to make money couponing.

1) The first is when you get money back or money toward a future purchase when you buy an item.
  • This only MAKES you money if the amount is more than the cost you pay for the item. Otherwise, you're just getting incentive to return and spend MORE money.

2) The second way to make money couponing is to buy things that are deeply discounted (but not free) and then resell them.
  • Deodorant, diabetes readers, and other items that have a bit of a shelf life have a resale value (albeit small) on swap sites and such. So if you get toothbrushes for $.25 and have enough coupons to make a "lot" of them, then you can later sell them for $1 for 3 new toothbrushes (show the retail price) so you don't make much but you can make some money. 
  • This is really nice with "free" items. So when you have a coupon for $2 off 2 deodorants and the current sale price is $1, the item is really "free" to you. If you sell it online for $1 for the two, you made a buck :) 

3) The third way to make money with coupons is when a coupon is doubled on an item that is less than $1 (most places only double coupons up to $1) and the store will apply the excess to another item, bringing down your total bill.
  • Not all stores do this but many do. Often you can do price comparison, and if the second store honors the price you can save more money. 
Do you coupon? What are your couponing rules?

Big Savings on Kid's Room

Here is a list of some great deals for items for your kid's room.

Super Cheap Cotton "inserts" for cloth diapers

For cloth diapers you need absorbency, but many people want extra inserts that are also cheap. The best way to do that is to improvise sometimes!

Consider using super absorbent cotton - and at 20 for $13 and potential free shipping, you can't go wrong! While they aren't real inserts, they work great and are cheap! If you get the 20x20 you can make 4 inserts out of them by serging or just cutting in quarters. You can also get just 2 by cutting in half and folding and sewing around the edge for more absorbency - natural fibers!

Use cotton towels for cars as:

Alternatives for diaper inserts

Save $130 on a carseat

Top of the line - some find this to be really to install - and a great price.
