Saving Money Means Cutting Coupons

How One Working Mom Got Involved In, “Couponing”

Here is what she had to say:

” . . . I took up a new hobby to save money – Cutting Coupons! LOL!

I wish I could have done this years ago!

The other day I went to a large grocery store with a bunch of coupons and

I only bought stuff I had coupons for.

I got 2 bottles of body wash, 2 bottles of mouth wash, 4 tubes of tooth paste, 2 packages of vacuum seal bags (which are my life- saver since I buy all of my meat for the month at once and then seal them up),

and I only I walked out of the store only spending $2.34!

I was very proud of myself! . . .”

What She Learned:

” . . . I also learned that at the local chain store they have what they call register rewards.  When you check out if you purchase certain items that are mentioned in their ad you will get register rewards printed out which is a coupon pretty much for (some times) the same price that you just spent so they are pretty much giving you your money back to the item is free and you have free money to spend on your next trip.

That has become a life-saver for me!

” . . . I had to get used to planning my budget . . . ”

What She Didn’t know:

. . . “I didn’t know that that store priced match so now whenever I go shopping there bring other store ads with me so this way I can pay the lower price!

The cashiers don’t like it so much but I love it!

Especially after I price match the item then use a coupon.

The other day I bought All laundry soap and another store has it on sale for $3.99.

I paid that price plus I had a $1 off coupon.

So, only spending $2.99 for laundry soap I can’t complain one bit!

I stocked up on them because I don’t know when they will have another sale for that price again . . .”

She told me there is a difference between, ‘Couponing’ and ‘Extreme Couponing’

” . . . There is a big difference between couponing and extreme couponing like they show on TV.

What they show on TV is not possible in real life.. . ”

Coupons Cutting Fact:

If you are a name brand freak about a food item then wait for a coupon to come out for it and stock up on that brand – Campbell’s Soup, for instance, versus store brand. There will – at some point – be a coupon for that brand, but you may have to wait for it to come out.

“. . . Walking out (of a store and) never spending any money can never happen but walking out spending $40-100 for a full cart of items is very possible! . . . ”

” . . . Even some drugstores take coupons.  With a child, that is especially important, because they get sick more often than we do – as adults. . . ”
