Don’t ever underestimate the benefit of coupons. I used to, but now I realize how much of difference they can really make. I was once able to save more than $10 because of my strategic use of coupons.
The trick is you need to spend some time each week looking at all the coupons you get from the newspapers, receipts, and even internet offers. I can’t tell you how many times I have used the website GROUPON for deals at local establishments. Just this week I was forwarded a coupon from GROUPON that would give me discounted bowling – which is perfect because my friends and I are starting to bowl more often!
I have also found that the receipt coupons are the trickiest ones to remember to look at. If you ever go to Wegmans or Tops there are always coupons for restaurants or stores on the back of your store receipt. That’s why each receipt is two feet long.
On a side note, I hate when I get super long receipts, what am I supposed to do with them if I don’t like the coupon that was given to me?
As for newspapers, they give you deals everywhere. Stores, restaurants, hotels, you name it – they have it! If you ever want to save some money on groceries, but the Sunday paper. I especially like to do that because it tells you the maximum amount of money you can save on the front page each Sunday!
This blog is directed towards college kids – don’t be frivolous with your money. Spend is wisely, and use coupons to help take some of the beating. You won’t be disappointed.
