One of the ways I am trying to be more of a frugal shopper is by using Free Coupons. I am not a “coupon clipper” so you will not find me sitting down each and every week going through online resources and newspapers to find coupons for all the products I buy. I am the type of person who may search for a coupon site, clip coupons that come directly from the manufacture such as Coupons for Home Depot, but other than that I simply use Google search engines to find coupon sites for me whenever I feel the urge to save money.
I have seen the amount of money coupon clippers have saved, they usually can purchase their normal every day products for pennies and sometimes even free. I am in awe over how they do it, to think you are raising a family and yet you still can find time to price match and get those coupons clipped for your family. I was going to say that’s crazy but then I realized the correct term for those who live on coupons is “thrifty” and “talented”.
Another way I have learned to be more frugal is in the area of going out to eat. My family loves going out to dinner, although we have cut back on going out to restaurants recently due to the income reductions, but when we do try to go to a place I will use my favorite search engine, Google, to find coupons for Restaurants. Chances are if I can find a good enough coupon for a local restaurant than I will take my family out as a special treat on occasion.
Honestly I think the best way to save money is to find free coupons online, it has worked for others, it has worked for me and I am proud to start learning more about coupons and living a more frugal life. What are some ways you have found to save money?
