Subscribe to your local Sunday paper. Not only do you save money on the cost of buying the newspapers individually, but you also won't miss out on good coupons.
Place a bowl on the kitchen counter and toss in those loose coupons that come in product packaging and that they hand you at the cash register in your store.
