Cash In Your Coupons
We all do it—we get the roll of coupons with our grocery receipt and toss it in the trash as soon as we arrive home. On the rare occasions in which we actually do save coupons, we forget them on the counter when we head to the store. Coupons can be a major money-saving tool, but only when they’re used!
Here’s an idea: Try dividing your coupons into a small envelope organized by category—grocery, drugstore, restaurant, retail, etc.—and keep it in your wallet, pocketbook or in your car. If you get to the checkout line at Target and realize you’ve forgotten your coupons, no sweat—just whip ‘em out or run out to your car.
If you haven’t saved your coupons, check out sites like www.couponcraze.com and www.hotcoupons.com. Get out your shopping list and see if any of the coupons on these sites match the items you’re about to buy. With just a little extra effort, you could wind up saving a lot of money.
BONUS TIP: Watch out for the expiration date on perishable goods. There’s no point in buying milk that’s going to spoil tomorrow!
