Saving Money with Coupons – Part 2: What coupons to save
What coupons to save?
I clip and save almost every coupon. The only time I don’t save a coupon is if it’s something I would never use. On Sunday when the coupon inserts come out, I spend about an hour clipping them. I put them in stacks of similar products. Like all the shampoo goes in one pile, all the cracker a coupon in another. From here you need to organize them. Save what you may use and pass on the rest to someone else.
Clipping and saving coupons
I save every coupon because I never know what is going to come on sale, or when I might find an item on clearance, and if I have all my coupons with me. Then I am able to take advantage of both the coupon and the sale. It’s frustrating to go to the store and see a good deal and be without your coupons.
Don’t be stuck on one brand
When you save all coupons, you are able to take advantage of some great sales. If you only save the coupons for the brands you normally buy, then you pay a lot more. SO clip all brands and always bring your coupons along with you. You can always give away things you don’t end up using for gifts or donate to the local food bank.
How many to save
I try to get at least 2 of each coupon but I am thrilled when I get more than that. Why do I save so many? When you buy items at a low price and stock up, the goal is to have enough so you won’t have to buy it again till it comes on sale. This way you are ALWAYS able to buy your items half off or more.
