Tip #1: Always Be Efficient
Time is money. You want to always be efficient when couponing as the process can be a bit overwhelming when you have hundreds of coupon sheets stacked in front of you. But when done efficiently couponing can be a HUGE money saver.
Tip #2: Be Organized
Being organized is a huge time saver which will help you get on to your next task. Fold your coupons into an organizer (baseball card holder works) instead of throwing all your coupons into a container and having to sort through them all at checkout.
Tip #3: Only Buy What You Will Use
We all know the feeling of going into a store like Target for one item and coming out with ten. Yes, it’s a struggle and a great tip is even if you have a coupon make sure you don’t buy it if you are not going to use it. It’s an easy way to save money and will help you stay on track. Go to the store with a plan.
Tip #4: Know Your Stores Policy
Make sure you check your stores policy before you go. You don’t want to get up to the counter and be terribly confused.
Tip #5: Pay Attention At Checkout
This is a very important tip. You want to pay attention to make sure you are getting the right amount deducted from your total. It’s easy for the cashier to make a mistake when dealing with a lot of coupons so make sure you do the math before hand.
