What would you say if I told you there is a way you can save as much or more than 14,000 in ten years? You wouldn’t have to invest any money out of pocket. Your only investment would be 15 to twenty minutes a week. How many of you could use extra money to pay bills? Are there any purchases you’ve put off because you can’t afford it? Coupon clipping is not a secret to anyone. So why do so many people pass up the opportunity to save money? I don’t believe many people are aware of the purchasing and saving power it holds. Coupons save you money. Let me explain further. Coupon clipping has allowed me to purchase things I wouldn’t have been able to purchase otherwise. I bought my sons a Kawasaki dirt bike that cost $5000. I have bought appliances for my kitchen, Christmas presents, and various other items throughout my life.
If you look at the dates on these receipts you will see that I have been saving money by clipping coupons for years. The coupon savings on these 4 receipts is $79.77. Here is an example of $5 worth of coupons. The next two sheets equal $20 in coupons. As you can see just a few coupons add up to big savings. You can receive even greater savings by combining items already on sale with coupons. Here is an example of breakfast cereal on sale 6 or $10. That is $1.67 per box. When you have a coupon for $1.00 off 3 boxes, the cereal is $1.50 per box and if you have two coupons for $1.00 of your cereal would be $1.33 per box. Here are some examples of retail store coupons. At the very least, even if you only chose to clip the occasional coupon, you would save $20 to $100 a year. This would buy a few pairs of scrubs for Amy, a few pairs of flip flops for Lynette, a deer tag or two for Mike and some trash bags for Becky.
If you clip coupons weekly and use them every time you go to the grocery store, you save anywhere from a thousand to five thousand a year. How can you afford not to clip...
