Couponing Tips:

What I took away from the class is never use a coupon unless the item is on sale.  That was a great tip for me and I do this now.

Some other experts say combine a manufacturing coupon with a store coupon.

Only buy what you need or it becomes clutter. I almost didn’t go to the class because that was what I was afraid it would turn into. These women weren’t like that.  Buy what you will need.

No name brands may still be cheaper than a name brand with a coupon. 

Ask for a rain check if the item is sold out.

Something you use all the time, why not write to the manufacturer, and ask on social media for more coupons?

And finally, do good!  The women talked about how they use stuff to donate to animal shelters and regular charities.   If it is something you won’t use but could help others, share the wealth!

What works best for you to use coupons: paper, electronic, or a combination of both? What couponing app would you use? What coupon tips do you want to try?

Take actions from both clutter free living blogs on coupon tips:

  • Decide if you are going to do coupons electronically, on paper, or in a hybrid.
  • Set aside time to set up your system and maintain it.
  • Check out coupons available online or consider a cash savings app
  • Pay attention. Don’t buy what you need or go crazy with stuff you won’t buy it will become clutter.  A no-name brand may be cheaper than a name with a coupon
  • Share the wealth with others if you do couponing on a regular basis
