Using Coupons

Hey guys, I learned about coupons in money management and I'm going to share with you some tips.

Effective Coupon Usage:
   First of all, keep a 3 months’ supply of non-perishable food and condiments.  If you do this, you only need to buy things when you have a coupon for it or if it's on sale instead of being forced to buy them because you need it.  Make sure that the coupon will save you more money than what it would cost to buy generic(no name) brands.
  Exercise coupon stacking.  That is when you have a manufacturer’s coupon for an item and the store has it’s own coupon for that same item.  You can get manufacturer's coupons at places like their sites, newspapers or even in the mail.

Extra Tips
   Never buy for convenience.  You are paying for your convenience and that price is not worth it.

   Don't buy convenience foods like chopped up carrots, buy the whole carrot and chop it up yourself.  It will save you a lot of money
