- – The Challenge – -

Collect Coupons!

Of course, if we’re going to make you into serious budget-savvy shoppers, you’ll need those coupons to help you really help you start seeing big savings.   and, the more coupons you have, the more likely you are to be able to take advantage of a deal.

Why? While many say they spend more when clipping coupons, but there’s more to it than just using them.   You have to use them at the right time!   Confused, read over Coupon Myths & Facts to get past your coupon stereotypes. Then, start stocking up, because couponers can save an average of 50-70% per shopping trip if you know how to use them correctly.

How? So where do we start finding these coupons?   There are so many sources, but here’s a few places I’d like you to start –

  1. Subscribe to the newspaper. The savings will more than make-up the cost!   And, consider All You Magazine too.
  2. Register online with manufacturers of products you   love or often use and sign up for their e-mailing list, mailing list, and rewards program (if they have one).
  3. Keep your eyes peeled in-store for blinkies, peelies, tearpads, and in-store coupon opportunities.
  4. Sign-up for a few samples, just for the high-value coupons that often accompany them.
  5. Follow 2-3 frugal blogs, like In Good Cents & Mummy Deals, to get hot coupon alerts!

If you’d like more, check out my 10 sources for FREE coupons and look at the hot coupons you may have missed!

When you have all those coupons, don’t worry.   We’ll be telling you what to do with them next week!   Plus, come back on Wednesday to find out how our Challengers do and hear their experiences!

How many coupons will you get this week?
