Yes it is possible to save money with coupons and discounts, and no need to devote all your time to it, just do a little research and combine coupons with sales. They sometimes invade us so much we tend to not think about it at checkout. However, codes can be used to make real savings. Little tips for how to use them effectively!
Vouchers, What Are They?
Vouchers come in various types! They allow you to get a discount on the price of one or more products and are generally in the form of a coupon with a barcode to enter upon checkout. You can find them on the product package (immediate discount or valid on your next purchase), in magazines, and especially on the Internet. And unlike rebate offers, coupons are combined with ongoing promotions in the store!
Internet: The Niche For Coupons
The internet is an inexhaustible source for any good cheapskate. Looking for good reliable reduction? Finding a serious site is not so simple, especially when the search engine offers more than 4.5 million responses to the query “coupons”. To be sure that you make the right choice, choose a site that gives you the expiry date of the offer. Some sites require you to log in or register. The goal is to alert you of new discounts that might interest you, based on your tastes or your previous purchases.
If you have a weakness for brands, Coupon Network offers discount offers available on the consumer product brands.
How To Use The Discounts
The problem with discount offers is that you can harvest them in quantum; all you need to do is search. Nevertheless, half of the offers often end up in the trash. To use your offers wisely, be pragmatic. If you do not intend to buy a product (except in case of a total refund), offer it as a gift to a friend to whom it may be useful.
To save money on your food budget, obey rule # 1: you buy only what you need: no frills! Or, like some people, donate anything you have not used to charities and associations. Being a miser does not prevent you having a heart!
Organizing Yourself To Store Coupons
We always find offers but we never know where to store them. In addition, they are easily lost. To avoid this, simply create a coupon box: simple and free.
Take an old shoe box. Make some precut glued sheets of newspaper or cardboard pieces cut to size. Indicate on each column (groceries, hygiene, etc.). All you need to do now is to organize your coupons by category.
To keep your coupons box from overflowing at the speed of lightning, keep only the coupons and deals relating to the products you use regularly or want to try (for this you also have free samples). Snoop regularly in it; it should give you menu ideas and allow you to remove outdated deals.
Make a habit of checking the box systematically before leaving to do your shopping. Place your box in a strategic place, with your reusable shopping bags, for example.
