Where to get coupons?

Now I'm planning on making a what I hope will be 1 of 2 trips for the month on the 1st. Our cupboards are getting pretty bare after couponing for a few months so this will be a stocking-up trip. Everyone is lost when they first start using coupons, you think how in the world do these people get this many items and use coupons for it all? Well here's some tricks.....

1. You can use 1 coupon for each item.
  • Say you have 5 boxes of pasta you can use 1 coupon for each box
2. To get extra coupons
  • Trade for them, with a group in your town, on a forum, family members in other states3
3. Coupons are regional so they vary in kind and price by area, sometimes you can trade for a higher value!

4. Buy them!
5. Know someone who delivers papers? Ask them if you can get the leftovers

6. Often times gas stations get reimbursed per newspaper if they don't sell on Sundays(I know this from actual experience) so why not ask if you can snag the coupons out of them before they do!
