Secrets of Success




coupons, coupons, coupons! I make a weekly grocery list and don't get anything that is not on that list! I make weekly menus also. This helps cut out the temptation of eating out. I use coupons when I can at the checkout. Sometimes I may only save $1 or $2 in a trip; although it doesn't seem like much at the time it all adds up to surprising savings at the end of the month. Save your receipts for a month and add up what you saved!

  • I am a huge coupon user. there are alot of stuff that you can actually get for free. At these times I will order coupons and then donate to shelters around the town. Not only did I not spend money but I have helped someone out in the process. - by KOTA30
  • Be careful to clip only the coupons of items you actually use. And sometimes, the store brand is still a better deal, even with the coupon. Wednesday I shopped two stores and redeemed $17.00 in coupons. I also found plenty of other great deals and stocked up on items we always need. I'm with you on this suggestion! - by CHARLOTTE1947
