Clipping coupons requires organization, and some time, but this practice comes in very handy when you are in a money crunch and especially when you are saving money for the holidays. Think of how much money in grocery items you could save before the holidays get here just by picking up coupons for the items that you normally buy. You don’t necessarily need to test out all the products that are featured on coupons, but if you normally purchase them anyways, by all means take that coupon to the store with you.
Anyone would like to save money up to 25% on common everyday purchases. Check the coupon mailers, the newspaper inserts and online coupon sites. There are even mom blogs that focus on savings that offer great coupons for the family. Remember, coupons aren’t only offered for food, they are available for cleaning supplies, bath & body, toys, and much much more.
Some of the coupon mailers come as individual coupons that allows you to easily flip through the coupons and quickly grab the ones that will benefit your family. These are the best kind of coupons because they don’t require you to cut out the ones that interest you. Kids love to go through coupons, but be careful, depending on how old your child is, they can easily cut off the barcodes and then your coupons will be invalid. If you kids can’t help in the clipping, let them help in the “finding.” Kids love going through coupons and finding food that they would love to see in their pantry or fridge. Kids love to help, and organizing coupons can be a great educational activity for everyone no matter how young or old.
Do you normally clip coupons? If so, where is your favorite place to find them?
