Ever have a couponing trip take a turn for the worst? In this video, we read an email from someone who tried to coupon and ended up spending almost $6000. Watch to see our advice!

Tip # 1: Don’t pay, walk away!

It’s okay if you get to the register and change your mind. Politely ask your cashier to put the items you don’t buy back on the shelf.

 Tip # 2: Start small, like under a grand.

Your first couponing trip should involve 4 coupons. The end.

Tip # 3: Don’t photocopy coupons, dummy.

You can print a coupon twice per computer. Each printer contains a unique barcode and cannot be photocopied.

Tip # 4: Coupon at your own risk.

The Krazy Coupon Lady doesn’t issue refunds on couponing trips gone bad. Sorry, folks!
