If you want to know How to Save Money shopping, check out the tips. Here I want to give you a little pep talk before you dive into couponing with both feet.
When I made the decision to start using coupons to save money, my husband had just been laid off and we were learning how to live on very little. I knew that I had to take this couponing thing seriously, so I began to treat it like a job.
As with any job, you are only going to get out of it what you put in. I remember those first few weeks putting what I had learned into practice. It seemed like I would spend hours on end making our meager $50 weekly budget work.
It got easier each week. And before long I was able to map out my shopping trips in less than two hours. Considering the amount I was saving, I figured I was making anywhere from $50-$100 an hour at my new “job” and that made the sacrifice in time worth it to me.
