What I Wish I Knew When I Started Using Coupons...

  • It’s okay to miss a deal. The deals will come around again.
  • If the store is out, get a raincheck. It is not a big deal unless you need the item.
  • Don’t buy an item just because it is on sale and you have a coupon. You will end up spending more money this way.
  • It is not worth it most of the time to make a trip to a store for one free item. The sales tend to cycle through the stores. Pick your favorite store and stick with it.
  • Not everyone spends the same amount for groceries, or buys the same items. Don't compare your savings to everyone else. Compare how much you are saving to how much you spent before. It's okay to spend more than $40/week on groceries.
