You may be feeling a bit overwhelmed with all that is involved, but I guarantee you once youíve done it a few times, it will get a lot easier. And when youíre saving so much money youíll feel even better!
Know your Storesí coupon policiesSince TLCís show Extreme Couponing came out, stores by me have changed their coupon policies. Follow these few pointers to become familiar with each storesí policies before you start coupon shopping.
Shopping each weekIíve developed my own ďsystemĒ for how I get ready for my shopping trips each week. Much like organizing your coupons, there are probably several ways to get ready to shop. This is what works best for me!
If I donít have a coupon for an item, and itís still a good deal or something I know weíll use, I will more than likely still purchase it. For example, when Goldfish go on sale for $1, I will buy at least 20 bags even if I donít have coupons. We eat a lot of Goldfish at our house!
