I love to save money and I also enjoy helping people save money too! That’s why I started my advertising company. I also enjoy following the patterns of other expert couponers such as our local coupon expert Doreen Christensen from the Sun Sentinel newspaper in South Florida.
Sports Columnist Dave Hyde; also with the Sun Sentinel newspaper in South Florida, did a great write up when he got to visit and go on tour with Keith Sims. Sims is a former Miami Dolphins Pro-Bowl Offensive Lineman. Not only did Sims excel on the highest level of the football field (in the National Football League), he also excels when he goes grocery shopping. He has become an expert at saving money using coupons. Read more with Hyde’s article as he demonstrates examples on how you can save money food shopping at the supermarket too!
If you are struggling with your income, then you should start couponing. If you have a large income, you should also start couponing. Just because you might have a large amount of money in your bank account, why wouldn’t you want to save money the same way you earn your money. Don’t allow it to disappear by paying full price whenever possible. Wait, do you like paying full price? I hope not! 😉
Make it a challenge for yourself to start doing the small things to save money. You have to make time in order to do this. People say they don’t have time or don’t care as they have other things to do. Really?!? Really?!? If someone told you a product you buy at the supermarket is regularly priced at $10; however, if you approached it from a couponing perspective and were told you would only have to pay $7.50 for that same product…it would make sense for you to save $2.50.
Lets expand this to outside of couponing in it’s traditional sense. If you shop online, start using coupon codes (also known as discount & promo codes). Many online retailers have major discounts by shopping online. Some even offer FREE shipping. Keep an eye out for companies that also offer FREE returns. We like to support online shoppers by providing them with the best discounts from hundreds of online retailers that provide us with special discount offers to promote for them.
Using gift cards is within “the norm” in today’s society as well. If you shop at a certain retail store, dine out at a certain restaurant or have a preference for a specific grocery store & supermarket, purchase gift cards at a gift card company online so you can save addtional money.
By prioritizing a little time each week, you can expect to really make a difference in not giving extra money to retailers, restaurants and supermarkets. Sims does an excellent job in demonstrating with proper planning & preperation, a little time dedicated to saving money along with an interest in not paying full price, one can save money.
Here is an example of working smart for saving money. If you get discounts from Groupon by email, they offer many discounts that can save you at least 50% off or more. Sometimes, you can find a special promotion for a 52-week subscription for your local newspaper for Sunday delivery for ONLY $10! That’s not a typo…that’s about $ 0.19 cents a week to have their newspaper delivered to you for every Sunday for a full year. This delivery also includes weekly coupon inserts and retail store circulars. You can then compare the coupons to the store sales and save even more money.
Have the Sun-Sentinel weekend newspaper delivered to your home and follow the advice of Doreen Christensen along with taking advantage of coupon inserts. It doesn’t take long time and it’s not a major sacrifice in order to save money…it’s just a matter of what you are willing to do in order to make it happen; and we want to help you make it happen!
