"Midnight" Shopping

I don't know about the rest of you avid couponers, but I've noticed that if you don't JUMP on those really hot deals you will never get them. Some helpful hints for this problem:
  1. Plan ahead! Stores like Walgreens and CVS post their ads for the next week around Thursday so you can start looking and see what you might want.
  2. Check the coupon blogs since a lot of them do the work for you and match up the upcoming ads with coupons (Links to my favorite blogs are on the side bar)
  3. Shop early
  4. If something is out of stock that has a reward - find out when the next shipment is due in and ask the manager if they can place a special order and hold it for you
  5. And when all else fails institute "Midnight" shopping
Generally if you can get yourself together and arrive at your destination just prior to midnight on the eve of a new sale day that is the best case scenario, but hey when that's not possible just go at 3:00 am. Yes you read that correctly, I said THREE AM so load up on Red Bull and get your booty out there!
