How to Get Free Groceries – Become a Coupon Queen
Start with your Sunday paper coupons. As a rule of thumb, plan to purchase at least two Sunday papers each week. Why two? Many times you will find a B1G1F sale (buy one get one free) where you can use two coupons. If you only have one, you only get half the savings. On particularly good weeks, where there are multiple high value Sunday paper coupons, plan on getting more. The most Sunday papers I have ever purchased is 20.
Most of us have friends, family and neighbors who get the Sunday paper. Many of them do not use their Sunday paper coupons or simply don’t know or care to know how to get free groceries. It is time consuming, after all, and many working people simply do not have the time. (That’s one benefit of being a stay at home mom.) Ask friends, family and neighbors to save coupons for you.
Most newspaper delivery people have extra Sunday paper coupons and inserts from newspapers that did not sell over the weekend. Often, the newspaper delivery people do not know how to get free groceries (or, as mentioned above, simply do not have the time) and simply throw away the inserts. (They usually only have to return the top page of the paper to the newspaper offices to get credit for not selling those papers.)
Many manufacturers offer coupons online. The caveat is that usually you are only able to print two identical coupons per computer that you have access to. Learn more about printable grocery manufacturer coupons on your quest to learn how to get free groceries.
When all else fails, you can purchase extra coupons through a coupon clipping service. You aren’t actually buying the coupons themselves, but are paying someone else to sort and clip them for you. This is a good method because you can obtain just the coupons you are interested in and pass on the rest. It also saves you the hassle of clipping and sorting each week as well.

My Favorite Deal of All Time: The Huggies Deal
I had managed to procure a handful of $2 off Huggies coupons (that also said ANY package, which was rare). I took these 5 coupons into WalMart, and found 5 packages of the trial packs. So I took my $10 in coupons, and my $9.85 in product up to the register at WalMart, expecting them to alter the coupon and that I would walk out paying sales tax.
