Hopefully if you have been reading Bargain Blessings for any length of time you are well acquainted with the fact that coupons can make a significant impact on any budget. If you don’t believe me, make sure to check out some of my previous See Me Shop Sunday and See You Shop Thursday posts.
Whether you are shopping at the grocery store, at a drugstore or at the mall I want to encourage you to use coupons as frequently as you can. Just a little planning and thought before a shopping trip can really make the difference between breaking the bank and walking out of the store with a smile because you know what you would have spent before your coupons.
I have to admit that I’m sometimes surprised at the reasons why some pople choose not to use coupons:
-I don’t think that they would save me that much.
-I don’t have time.
-I don’t know where to find them.
Do any of these sound familiar?
If you are not already convinced by the above links that using coupons is worth your time and they really do create significant savings, take a look at a few of these couponing testimonials. If those don’t do it for you, why not give couponing a chance for a week or so? I’llbe willing to bet that you will be surprised at the results. 😉
If you are not sure where to get started, check out the Couponing 101 section of Bargain Blessings. It is filled with tips for getting started, getting organized and ideas for where to find coupons.
