Extreme Couponing 101: The beginning

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!


A Valpak national study says close to half of us (about 40%) now search for deals or coupons before making a purchase. And, 41% of coupon users come from households earning greater than $70,000! (Nielsen Online Research) That means we are all becoming savvy shoppers, wanting to hang on to our money rather than spending aimlessly on daily needs.

Many people believe clipping coupons "takes too much time" or somehow "looks cheap". The truth is, spending 20 minutes clipping coupons before you shop can save you up to 30% at the grocery store. What's not cool about that? Do you get paid that amount in 20 minutes working every day?

 There are so many online resources and deals found for you that saving money at the store doesn't take a lot of time. It just takes a person willing to follow directions on how to make it happen. If you buy only generics and store brands, that is a good savings tactic. But many times with a coupon and a sale you can save even more than generics and give you the ability to stock up on your favorites.

Coupons are everywhere and more than likely available on ALMOST ANYTHING you use, and yes, you can even save going organic. The key is not buying things you won't use just because it's on sale and you have a coupon (or consider donating those items to the needy). I consider coupon money or currency and treat it as such. Also, know that retailers don't lose money when you use a coupon. Retailers receive back the face value of a coupon in addition to a handling fee of 8 cents.

In the next several days I will be sharing very valuable tips on how to coupon with you. First things first… let’s learn how to become a savvy couponer. :)

To be continued... :)
