I have found that cutting coupons is a money saver….if they actually make it to the store with me. I always get excited when the price continues to drop every time the cashier runs a coupon across the scanner. Some grocery stores even double your coupons. Whether, you have to buy the Sunday paper or get a circular delivered to your home for free…It is definitely worth it to be a coupon cutter. There are times when I have enough coupons to save $5 – $10 at the grocery store. I also use coupons when shopping, as well. The problem I run across is that I do not always have my coupon book with me or if I do I forget to use it, especially if I am making random runs to the grocery store during the week. So, going forward I am going to make sure that I make more scheduled trips and pull out the coupons before I actually walk into the store. For those who are not regular coupon cutters, purchasing a coupon book will help keep all of the coupons in order.
One thing I have noticed over the years especially around christmas, is that we always need batteries. My husband is always running out after the kids open all their gifts because most of the toys need batteries. After, he runs out the door I always remember we have coupons for batteries. Of all things not to use coupons on…batteries..they are so expensive. I think this year I am just going to go ahead and get some in advance, because I know we are going to need them and I have more than enough coupons for them.
