Wise Buying 2013 Begins Now
Okay, if you said to yourself that this year I will clip coupons to save, now is the time to begin! In this week's Sunday paper there will be SIX inserts. You can expect 3 SmartSource (although two of them might be combined in some areas), 2 Red Plum, and 1 Target. This is a great week to buy multiple papers. So, let the savings begin!
Here are a few tips for getting started on great savings using coupons:
• When clipping coupons, clip coupons that you will use if the item was given to you FREE; because having a coupon can make an item that you would not normally purchase, but are willing to consume a free item to try or give away.
• Make a grocery list before shopping using the sales ads from all your local grocery stores, drug stores, and one-stop shops such as Walmart and Meijer and even Target and match the coupon with the sales items for the greatest savings.
• Be willing to make your shopping trip a part of your regular routine and no longer a once a week for a once a month venture. For instance, when going out to take a child to sports practice, you can stop by your local Walmart to take advantage of the great coupon savings. Shopping for one or two items on purpose does not take a lot of time and can save lots of money.
