COUPONS ARE A GIRLS BEST FRIEND
Anyone who knows me or checks out my posts on Facebook knows that I am completely SOLD to using coupons for everything. Yes, coupons take time. Yes, brand loyalties have to be thrown out the window. Yes, I had to completely change when I shopped, the way I shopped and how I planned my meals. But, it’s all worth it.
This is what I know. Manufacturers want you to be drawn to their products so they put out gobs of coupons. There are very few things that you cannot find a coupon for if you are willing to do a little hunting. The stores do NOT lose money if you give them a coupon. They are reimbursed by the manufacturer.
I save anywhere from 40 – 65% on grocery, health/beauty and cleaning products every week because I take about 20 minutes before I shop to get organized. Then, when I get home, I take about 5 minutes to see what stock up items I bought this week to plan meals for next week. It found what works for me.
Jeff asked if, when we’re independently wealthy, I will go back to my old ways of shopping. I said absolutely not. For the small amount of trouble, there is no reason to pay retail prices again. I get the same high saving money that I used to get spending money– and it makes me feel like such a smarty.
