Keep reading after the jump to find out Extreme Couponing Tips!
Tip 1: Don’t purchase things JUST BECAUSE they are on sale.
* I’m not going to start buying potato chips because I can get them for a true bargain. That would defeat the purpose because then I will be spending more money than I would have if I was just shopping like a regular consumer.
Tip 2: Be smart about the timing of things.
* We didn’t particularly NEED dish soap, but CVS was having a sale on Palmolive and I got 2 for free and one for $.49 because I used the right coupons during the right time. YES – I got 3 bottles of dish soap for $.49 – all because I was careful about when I used the coupons.
Tip 3: Don’t clip coupons out of the flyers when you get them.
* Instead of making yourself a HUGE piles of coupons that you have to sort through, keep the coupons in their pamphlet form and punch holes in the paper. Store everything in your binder. This way you can easily flip through your coupons and cut them out when needed. Remove pages that have items you would NEVER EVER BUY – for me that was diapers, cover up, senior citizen items etc.
