I used to scoff at coupons. I had a whole list of excuses why they weren’t worth it.
- I told myself coupons were so low-value they couldn’t save any real money
- I told myself finding and clipping coupons would take hours of my time
- I told myself coupons were only good for unhealthy junk food items
- I told myself using coupons was embarrassing.
- I told myself coupons made me look like a poor person.
- I told myself coupons were too hard to understand.
Every one of these excuses is a myth. One day, I decided I needed to test my ideas. I took one day to read about coupons and learn how they work. I printed off about a dozen coupons, drove to the grocery store, and in my very first day, I brought home $83 worth of groceries ABSOLUTELY FREE. I was astounded.
By not couponing, I had been throwing money out the window.
With smart couponing, I bring home a hundred dollars or more worth of free or cheap groceries, cleaning items, household goods, pet food, and more, and I do it every single month. I want to show you how you can do the same for your family. Everything I’ve written about couponing is intended to help you start saving money TODAY.
