Tuesday Tip on Frugality– I will offer a tip in regards to coupons, and organization
Tip#72: Always use a system that works for you
I can admit that I shop everyday. I check my local stores for deals and even check up on upcoming deals. When I get home I calculate the total and gather the necessary coupons that I need to complete the deal. Between work and children I still manage to make time to use coupons.
Once I am getting ready for my trip, I place all of the coupons in an envelope with the store name on it. I also paper clip the picture just in case of any discrepancies. I build great relationships with the associates so that they allow me to do multiple transactions with ease.
Lots of newbies try to follow seasoned coupon users to the t. Some people use binders while others use envelopes. Some people clip everyday, while others clip as needed. Your mileage may vary. One deal may be at another store, but not at yours. What works for one, will not work for another. Learn to achieve your highest savings the best way that YOU can.
When you find a system that works for you, it makes life that much easier.
