Couponing On-The-Go {Couponing Tips for Busy Moms}

Does it seem like you never have the coupons you need with you when you need them? If you are like me then your errands tend to be spontaneous. Coupons can be hard to come by especially that I no longer get the news paper. I do have a couple of great tips to keep you saving on the fly! One of my favorite sources for saving, especially for large purchases, auto servicing (oil changes) or home repairs is the Money Mailer

  • Keep coupons for frequently visited places in your car - I keep coupons for my favorite restaurants and pizza spots and local dry cleaners in the center console of my car. They are kept nice and organized in a plastic pencil box. (I always have 20% coupons for my favorite home goods store in their too) 
  • Have you seen all of the great coupons from Money Mailer in your mailbox? Dry cleaners, restaurants, oil change places. Perfect coupons to keep with you when you are on-the-go.
  • Try to plan shopping trips/coordinate coupons the night before - Although I may not always be successful I do try to plan out any shopping the day before. If I don't have time to clip them, I usually have a small pair in my car. 
  • Digital coupons - There are many websites that you can print coupons from your home. The days of retailers refusing them seems to be over. Did you know the Money Mailer even has grocery coupons on their website?
  • Money saving apps - these are an on-the-go mom's best way to save. Money Mailer has a free app you can download and start saving immediately. I have saved a substantially greater amount of money this year by using money saving apps. 

In honor of Money Mailer's 35th year anniversary I wanted to share some fun coupon slang and interesting coupon facts. 

Did you know:
  • 92% of consumers use coupons, 60% use printable coupons (RetailMeNot)
  • 55% of shoppers digitally "clip" coupons (Inmar)
  • 81% of consumers find it fun to see how much they can save with coupons or loyalty cards (Deloitte)
and this one which really surprised me:
  • 56% of 13-17 year olds use coupons or coupon codes (RedPlum)

What are your best tips for saving while on-the-go? Happy Saving.

  1. The Money Mailer sounds way cooler than what we get here. I do try to coordinate my trips the night before but I also have a huge coupon holder. LOL

  2. I am an avid couponer and have been for over 10 years now. I am so happy you gave the coupon lingo as there were a few I did not know. All of these are great tips. Thanks so much!

  3. I'm not big on coupons because I never find what I want. LOL! Great tips.


  4. I get the Money Mailer each time it is sent out. It is rare that I find a coupon I will use-but ther are some so I always check! I never thought to go to their website-thank you!!

  5. I love your tips because I could really use ways to save. With the holidays coming up, I'm already spending extra money, so I love finding couponing tips.

  6. These are great tips. I used to coupon much more but it became too much work. I definitely could keep some in the car though!

  7. This are great tips indeed. I love to save and find good deals. Thanks for sharing.
