How to Organize Your Coupons For Maximum Savings
Save for your kids' college education? Sock away some more money for your advanced years? Take a vacation to Fiji? Learn to fly jets? I'm not sure I'll be learning how to fly jets any time soon, but I do want to go to Fiji, and I'm saving enough using coupons to finance the trip. Watch the video to learn how.
Now that you know how to organize your coupons, I'm going to take you with me to the grocery store next week to show you how to shop with them.
To wet your appetite for that, today I purchased two tubes of tooth paste (regular price $2.89 each) and two 18 ounce cartons of oatmeal (regular price $2.79 each). I used the store BOGO (buy one get one free) coupons for each product, I paid $2.89 for the 2 tubes of tooth paste and $2.79 for the two cartons of oatmeal. Total price, $5.68. I used coupons for the oatmeal and coupons for the tooth paste. My total price, $3.48. By combining the BOGO with manufacturer's coupons, I got $11.36 in merchandise for $3.48.
