Recently I have been very intersted in coupon clipping. I used to think it was a waste of time...I mean it was only $.50 off or so! But wow I didnt realize how it all adds up. It is so much fun to me now. Its almost like playing a video game and constantly trying to beat your highest score. I get excited each Monday when I head off to the grocery store to see if I can save more than I did the last week. I am still not that great at it and still really learning the best way to do it but I enjoy it. I usually only save about $40-50 but this week I saved $76! I know to some that is nothing because they always save more than they spend but to me that was pretty good! It helped though that Publix had an amazing sale this week and all the items were things that I use often.
Here are some of the websites I use and tips I have learned from others:
*I use the coupons out of the Sunday paper and the flyers they have at the grocery store
*At Publix you do not have to literally Buy one to get one free...if you only get one, its just 50% off. I know at Winndixie you have to get 2 to get the deal.
*A lot of stores will take other stores coupons. (Winndixie often gives you a $10 off of $50 or more coupon and some stores will take those.)
Do you have any tips or website you have found helpful? How do you organize your coupons because I havent found a good way to do that yet?
Happy Saving! :)
