Later you 'need to divide it up into tegories like Juices, Aid etc,, sometimes into brand names like the name of a certain apple juice, etc. Next question, where do you find these forms you need? Newspapers have plenty, expecially the large dailies on Sunday and Wednesday when the supermarket ads are biggest. Look in magazines, grocery stores (our local Winn Dixie posts them on a bulletin board). drugstores, dimestores, on the pro- duct label itself and sometimes even on television ads. where toll-free numbers are given. There are probably a couple hun- dred refund publications in the U.S. that list refunds and people who want to rade refund forms. Doing this trading one-for-one is the best I'll send 15 forms to a person in another state.

You have to watch When you start to accumulate a large number of forms you should divide them up by expiration date. so you don't get upset when you are ready with your POPs to send in. only to find the offer expired last month.

How much can you save? I average about $5.00 a week in refund checks, about three free food coupons a week. With regular coupons I also save about 20 percent a week on my food bills If you are determined to cut food prices you can do it - maybe as much as $500 to $1.000 or better each year. It all depends on how many refunds and paper coupon cutting and using you do Believe it or not: refunders have been known to scout garbage dumps. trash cans and people's cupboards for that last P O.P they might need for a refund There are even conventions for Dawnella's trading P.O.P.s.

I also put a "'R" by an item if l'm working on a refund that needs another P.OP from that product I also carry a portable coupon box If I don't I for sure run across an unadvertised special that's not on my list. On some boxes and packages there are half price film developing specials You send your film to get developed cheaper by mail usually. Beside that savings they often offer "free food or product" coupons for using their service. You can get a free five pound bag of sugar, free paper products. $1.00 coupons off cereal, and more.
