Don’t overdo

It is okay to be like that in the beginning. But the secret mantra is to only use the free time at hand to look for the coupons and not spend endless hours of productive time searching.

Your Shopping

 Now instead of the usual brand if you buy an upgraded brand which will cost you 13 bucks, you are not making any saving at all. In its place if you go for a curd that is for say 7 bucks.

Downsize your shopping

  1. Downsize your shopping

Just because you have coupons, that does not allow you to go for a higher or a premium brand. In fact, to make a saving, you will need to downsize your shopping. Let’s say that a cup of curd of a brand that you usually buy costs you ten bucks. You have been lucky to get a coupon which entitles you to a discount of 3 bucks.

 

Now instead of the usual brand if you buy an upgraded brand which will cost you 13 bucks, you are not making any saving at all. In its place if you go for a curd that is for say 7 bucks then you are definitely making a good save.

  1. Perishables and stock piling is a big no:

Another trap to avoid is to stock piling on perishables. Seriously, nowadays where is any extra space in the pantry to actually store so much? Besides, perishables may need to be refrigerated or kept at special temperature and in the end you may end up spending a little more on the electricity bills than saving at the grocers

 

Last but not the least, when using coupons and shopping it is extremely important that you are courteous to the fellow customers and the staff at the store. You also need to understand and follow the rules of the store.

It is no doubt great to make savings and it is similarly great to have a lovely shopping experience by being a pleasant customer yourself.
