I highlight deals from Houston’s chains. I do not cover every deal at every store. I don’t do a lot of Kroger deals, in reaction to their discontinuation of the double and triple coupons ONLY in Houston.
I try to hit the ones that have high value or rarer coupons, do not go on sale often, or hit my stock up price. Rarely do I highlight deals for Nestle products, because I do not purchase Nestle items. I don’t highlight all of the meat deals because I am very very picky on the hot dogs and lunch meat I buy for my family. I try not to list very rare coupons like peelies and printables because not everyone has access to them. If I do list tearpads and coupons from coupon books, it’s mainly to call your attention to the many opportunities to pick up coupons.
If several stores have an item on sale, I try to highlight it. What’s a good price for one store may be a regular price for another.
If you have any questions, please email me, or leave a comment.

Hi Kristin,my name is Maria and I am REALLY trying to kick up my couponing a notch because I am tired of paying over $100 every week on groceries then always having to go back to the store because I forgot to buy something else! Please tell me what store overall is going to save me the most money. Is there a day of the week that has the best deals? Please help. I need all the tips I can get.
Have a great day!
Well, a lot of that is going to depend on where you live, how many people you’re shopping for, and how you shop. It sounds like you don’t really have a stockpile, so you might want to consider buying the “loss leaders” as they go really cheap or free.
Can you give me some more details? If you’d rather not, you can email me at kristin at coupon kristin dot com.
When will you have another coupon class in the Houston area. I live in the Heights area and I am trying very hard to squeeze more out of my grocery budget with coupons but it is not going well at all. It seems that I can not find a store that doubles coupons to get a better deal so I am lost big time. Any help would be great. Thanks again.
I’m working on it! 🙂

I would like to attend also.
Have you found a reliable source for coupons? I get mine from out of town and am tired of paying postage. Thanks!BTW, I really appreciate all the work you are doing posting these deals.
