I've always been a coupon clipper. But last year, I really became more of a coupon printer, thanks to an explosion of savings offered on the Web through sites such as Coupons.com.

On Wednesday, the Website released its 2010 frugal cities ranking, with Minneapolis weighing in at No. 5.

The index looked at Minneapolis proper and was based on the city's total printed coupon savings through coupons.com and its affiliates. The city has a savings index of 329, meaning that residents are more than three times as likely to print coupons as a "typical" city resident.

Have you found yourself using more printed coupons? And how do you find them? I typically go to sites that analyze store circulars and then scour the web for coupons that match up with store deals, maximizing savings. One such site is the Maple Grove-based pocketyourdollars.com, but there are many others, such as moneysavingmom.com and couponcravings.com

Here's the list:
