I really enjoy Extreme Couponing – watching the TV show that is. The lesson it teaches is straight forward: In order to make money you have to put in a lot of work – the harder you work the more you make. All that I enjoy watching from a distance on TV.
Back in the real world couponing still looks appealing to me because it is so freaking easy. I don’t want to put in a lot of time or effort so I’m okay with not cashing in big time. But a little effort can bring you far with Casual Couponing in Utah:
I have two easy steps:
1. Whenever a coupon circular is in the paper I file under its date.
2. I use grocerysmarts to match coupons and sales:
Sunday: Target, Walgreens, RiteAid
Wednesday: Smith’s, Macey’s and Fresh Market
Since I have to go grocery shopping at least once a week anyway I allow a matched list to direct me to a particular store.
Without adding more work, any suggestions for improvement?
