Remember the days coupons were clipped out of newspapers? Well, now that newspapers are closing down faster than you can say discount, websites like the following will help you save some bucks on some bare essentials you have to buy, recession or not.

The big daddy of all coupon websites is You can enter your zip code and it will calculate coupons that are redeemable in your specific area as well. From contact lens solution to whipped cream, this website has $0.50 to $1.50 on every household item, which are categorized by brand as well.

If you are always on the lookout for deals, Walmart‘s low prices can be further trimmed by their weekly deals. Check out Northwest Arkansas Deals, which highlights weekly deals at Walmart, Walgreens and other major stores. Check out weekly deals at Target at iMommies.

Another blog, BeCentsAble, has more everyday deals and ideas about managing an efficient home economy. As Jill mentioned before, Craigslist’s barter section is an untapped resource. Other useful websites include SwapTree, SwapThing and more here (Thanks, BeCentsAble!).

If you like keeping your photo albums up-to-date, April may be the month to do it. Here are some cool photo deals, including 50 free 4×6 prints when you sign up at SeeHere. (Thanks, Stretching a Buck!)

  • RetailMeNot has information about deals at retail stores from Bloomingdales to Apple, including printable free and discount coupons.
  • Target Coupons has printable discounts for groceries and information about stores close to you where they can be redeemed.

Meanwhile, mimic Coupon Mom to stay afloat in this economy!

  2. Great post! Everyone always talks about coupon websites but I never knew where to go. Also on you can get free samples of different stuff every week!

  3. Coupons are amazing. My favorite is when I get double coupons. It’s like the store doesn’t know what hit it.

  4. here’s my problem with coupons: when you’re reeeally poor, you aren’t buying name brands anyway, so coupons can’t really help you.

  5. I agree with Christina G. I often wish I loved really cheap clothing so I would save more money but alas :(! Oh well! Anways, retail me not does have some great coupons, also for online shopping so that is always a plus.
