So, here’s the scenario …
- Spend an hour working your way through a LONG grocery list
- Wait in line at the checkout with a fistful of coupons, ready to save, save, save!
- Finish checking out, and see at the bottom of your receipt … You saved $4.30 today
What?? Just $4.30? Has this ever happened to you? It hardly seems worth it!
This was my typical experience with coupons. After enough hassle-filled trips resulting in paltry savings, I justified eschewing coupons with “we buy mostly fresh produce and there are no coupons for that,” or “coupons will make me buy things I don’t really want or need.” Deep down, however, I knew that there was a way to make them work. My friend Kristin saves A LOT of money using coupons, so I asked her if I could interview her! She shared some of her great techniques with me. I am SO excited, in turn, to share them with all of you!
