I’m not talking about saving a ton of money but saving a bunch of time by not clipping coupons. It seems like every time I try to use a coupon the cashier reads the fine print trying to find a loophole so I can’t save 10%. I don’t clip coupons from a newspaper either. Yes, they still sell newspapers despite all the tree-hugging that goes on in this world. All the food advertised is terrible for you. I have yet to find a coupon for grass-fed beef, broccoli, or a bag of pinto beans. Instead of clipping digital coupons and adding them to your BJ’s membership card, how about taking a play out of Costco’s book. Just put your items on sale.
Coupons make you spend more because most have a threshold to meet. You end up buying something you don’t need as a filler because you needed to spend $100 to get $20 off. It’s really simple math, just take your hourly wage and calculate how much you lost because you could have been earning. Save a ton, don’t clip none!
