• Clip coupons from a flyer. Most Connecticut residents receive a free weekly newspaper. You can find your Sunday newspaper at a gas station which has tons of coupons. You can also ask family, friends, or neighbors for coupons that they do not use. You can also go online and print out coupons if you have a printer. I personally do not have a printer so I screenshot the coupon.
  • Join a coupon club. Most libraries and housing authorities have these references. You can join coupon groups/clubs on Facebook. One group on Facebook is called Connecticut Couponers.
