Coupons are for anyone willing to put in a little effort to save money. Couponers come from every background and budget, and you should always be proud to use them because coupons are your currency. Remember that the manufacturer reimburses the store for every cent of each coupon, so use them without shame.
If you’re new and apprehensive about redeeming coupons, start slowly. Opt for eCoupons and newspaper manufacturer coupons for the most stress-free options, and organize which coupons you’ll be using before you get to checkout. Always carry your store’s coupon policy with you every time you shop; those policies should do the talking for you when you run into snags.
And once you’re scoring great deals regularly, remember to share the coupon love. Let others know about coupons, TheKrazyCouponLady.com website, and how they can save money too. If you have time, try teaching a small couponing class or getting others involved. And when you have extras from your stockpile, reach out to those in need by donating to friends, family, churches, or food banks in the area.
