Tuesday's Tip 3: Wrinkling

in Frugal Series, Tips & Basics


So often Internet coupons print twice, so you can easily grab up both pages and cut out the coupons together. But, when you go to buy the item and hand the cashier the two coupons they are so perfectly printed and cut that look like one coupon. How do you make the cashier recognize each coupon and stop your coupons from getting stuck together?

It’s easy! Squeeze them in your fist lightly and wrinkle them up just a little bit. Do this with each coupon individually before you stick it in your coupon holder or with the coupons you plan to use on your shopping trip. This will make the coupons not sit flat together, so the cashier will be able to easily grab each coupon and won’t skip one!

It will save you time and money.

I separate the printed coupons with coupons that I cut from the inserts, since those are “slipperier”. I don’t necessarily like doing that, though, because as someone who loves all things organized I also like to have coupons that are the same “back to back” in my hand when I flip through them before I hand them to the cashier!
