Of course, we love couponing and know it can be a great and rewarding hobby, but sometimes you can get stressed out with all the clipping, organizing and shopping. Rethink your methods to make sure couponing and shopping are still fun!

Want to spice up your couponing trips? Try a little healthy competition either with or against your fellow coupon buddy or your own best record. Try to beat your best percentage saved, or use the most number of coupons per trip.

One of the biggest stressors in couponing is falling behind on clipping or being disorganized. Keeping up to date on things will save time in the long run and make your saving goals easier to achieve. Try clipping coupons while watching your favorite TV show, or have older children help out to ease the task.

Child Play
Having kids along on shopping trips can be difficult, but there are tactics to ease the tension! Take along snacks to curb hunger complaints, let them help pick out flavors and colors (apple kiwi or blueberry pomegranate juice, the color of a toothbrush, or pasta shape!), bring comfort items and soft toys for babies and toddlers, assign older children special jobs like getting a gallon of milk from the next aisle or reading you the shopping list, or playing “I Spy.” These reinforce that shopping is a positive experience!

Take a break
When things get tough, feel free to take a break. Whether it’s a week without shopping or passing up a few deals to spend time with family or friends, relaxing can be beneficial. Soon you’ll have renewed energy and an increased enthusiasm for couponing!
