There are many stages of couponing, but I will tell you about an extreme couponer. No, do not worry, it is nothing serious and you should have not feel embarrassed if you fit into this category and save up to 90% when going shopping. But for everyone who is interested in couponing, but are not sure what benefits this will bring them, I will explain it all to you.
The most important thing of course, is getting the most coupons as possible, try to find as many as you can from the same source, so you can save on that one item. You can find coupons in newspapers, in the grocery stores, at the manufacturers who will usually send you free coupons just for saying how much you liked their products or at your neighbors, parents and friends house. They usually get the newspaper or a magazine and just check it out and later throw it away, missing an amazing opportunity to save big money next time they go to the mall. The best way is of course the internet. Many years ago when the couponing started, we did not have the access to the internet and when we did, it was not a place to get coupons, but to search for fun or education. Now, there are hundreds of websites dedicated to finding coupons that you can print and use later.
If you can’t find the coupons or promo codes for your favorite items, check out their website as they usually offer printable coupons and special promo codes when shopping on the internet. If you are more into beauty and fashion department, a lot of YouTubers and bloggers have amazon promo codes that save you a few bucks when purchasing a special set of earrings, a makeup brush or a new dress that you want so badly. All you need is a little bit of searching and do not limit yourself to just one source. If you really want to save money, you will hoard your home with newspaper and magazines that will give you coupons and promo codes; just make sure you recycle it later and save a tree or two.
Look at for special sales, because if you can get a few coupons for the selected cheaper items, you can actually walk away with them for free. Yes, with extreme couponing you can get sometimes everything for free. Be aware of your local shops sales and follow the dates until when you will be able to use your coupons. Another important thing is to learn about the stores coupon policies, if you know how they let you use them and how much you can save with them, it will be easier for you to know which stores are better than other.
When in a store, compare the prices of different items and products. Do not settle for the first one, when you know for sure you can get it for a more affordable price somewhere else or if you chose another item and product. Think a lot about what you want to save your money on and do not just buy everything that you see, for the sake of saving money. Buy the necessary and something that you will use often and well, plus that it will be worth of your money and time you put into finding great deals and coupons. That is why it is so important to shop with a complete list of things that you want and need. That way you are sure you will not spend more money than you wanted and will be able to check off the list everything that you purchase.
