It’s a fact collecting coupons has become very important in today’s world. We all watch the extreme couponing show and would love to be able to save that much on groceries. You can do it!
When using coupons it is very important that you go by the words, and not the pictures. Grocery coupons typically include an image of the item and a written description. I’ve seen in many cases, the coupon will apply to several sizes and varieties of the same item, although the picture may feature on particular variety (often the most expensive). Strategic Shoppers know to study the wording rather than just picking up the item that matches the picture.
Here’s an example. You might have a coupon offering $1.00 off a certain brand of toothpaste. But that brand comes in multiple varieties, ranging from the $1.00 basic item to the $3.49 premium product. If you simply grab the item pictured on the coupon, you’ll save $1.00 off the $3.49 version. If you pay close attention to the wording, you’ll know to select the $1.00 item and get it for nothing.
Discounted prices are great, but NOTHING BEATS FREE!
Coupons will come in handy during the holiday season so check your Sunday paper, mail, and Internet sites for those coupons you can use. Match them up with the sales paper from your favorite store and start saving immediately. We wish you all the very best during this Holiday season.
