A new month means it’s time for a few coupon chores

Posted on February 1, 2014 

It's Feb. 1, which means it's time to do a few coupon chores.

If you haven't already, take a little time to purge your coupon organizer of all the January coupons that are now expired.

Next up, check your favorite printable coupon sites for new coupons. Most sites roll out new coupons over the first few days of each new month. So if you don't see any new coupons you like today, I recommend checking in each day this week.

Here are some of my favorite sites to print coupons:

*The News & Observer's Find N Save coupon page, which is powered by Coupons.com

*BettyCrocker.com

*Pillsbury.com

*CommonKindness.com. This site is great for folks looking for coupons on healthier products.

*SmartSource.com

*RedPlum.com

*MamboSprouts.com. Another good site of healthy product coupons.

*LiveBetterAmerica.com

Third, check to see if you have any mail-in rebates that need to be mailed in. Most rebates give you a two-week window to mail in the form once the offer has expired.

And finally, be sure to check in at the online sites you use, such as SavingStar, Ibotta and Recyclebank. Those sites typically release new offers timed to the start of the new month.

News & Observer is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
