Live Better Baby Club (livebabybetter.net)
Live Better Baby Club is the resource for everything baby. They have partnered with Pathmark, A&P, Walbaums, The Food Emporium and Super Fresh groceries in order for customers to sign up for free and receive perks such as 10% off baby products, free prenatal and prescriptions vitamins and with the help of coupon source, you are also able to download coupons directly to your reward card from one of the participating grocery stores. On the website, they feature America's Choice products so I am unclear if the 10% is exclusively for their products or for any brand.

Baby Product Sites
When you first became pregnant, you might have (or a family member) subscribed to various magazines such as Parenting Magazine or Baby Magazine. If you did, your in luck. For the first time you would be happy that these magazines sold your information to baby products because those companies will now send you free offers of formula, coupons to different stores and other great samples. If you have not subscribe it is not too late. If you go to Motherhood Maternity and purchase an item, the cashier will offer you a free magazine. Accept the offer but don't forget to call the magazine and cancel your subscription because they will bill you. Also when you purchase an item from Motherhood, they fill your bag with lots of coupon goodies.
Similac.com: Sign up for free for strong moms on their web site and in a week you will receive exclusive coupons and a couple of checks to use on any Similac
pampers.com: Sign up for the reward and grow program and like Similac, you will receive coupons off diapers, wipes and exclusive offers.
Carters.com: Carters will send magazines to your address with coupons attached to the back for at least 20% savings.
Diapers.com: I have never used diapers.com but they will also send coupons to use only on their websites.
Inside magazines: Don't forget to look for advertisements and deals in your favorite magazines or specifically parent magazines. You never know what goodies you may find.
Don't Forget Magazines
The good ol' fashion clipping of coupons from Sunday's newspaper, it never gets old.
How to Organize Your Coupons
There are many ways to organize your coupons. It is hard to organize by date but I find using a binder with clear holders and organizing by category such as diapers, wipes, formula/food, clothes and accessories might work. However, whatever way you would like organize is up to you. Find a set up that you are comfortable with and will be able to control. If you keep the coupons in one big pile, you will miss deadlines and therefore miss a chance to save.
