Coupon clubs: Save a buck at a coupon swap

Collect club members
3 of 8

Coordinators Diane Hine and Michelle Henning found members for Bella Vista's club by putting out a call for members in the library newsletter, listing the coupon swap in local papers and sending notices to regional papers. They'll even hand out club fliers to people they see using coupons in the grocery store.

Or you could reach out to community groups and organizations, such as senior or new moms' groups. Since 2004, Amy Hannold, coordinator for the northern chapter of the Whidbey Coupon Club on Whidbey Island, Wash., speaks regularly about savings savvy. She visits the local Mothers of Preschoolers group, senior centers and community center groups, and picked up a few new members as a result.

"They're excited to learn how to live a fuller life at half the price. We're saving them stress and chaos as well as money," Hannold says.
