I’m always telling you how much I love hearing from my readers. Often I get questions about how to save money or utilize coupons, but the other day I received a super couponing tip from one of my readers, Amanda in Connecticut. Whether you are a coupon newbie or have been strategic shopping for years, Amanda’s advice can help you improve your shopping experience.
Getting to know the people in your neighborhood supermarket, even if it is a big chain, it is extremely helpful with coupons. One woman knows I like to use coupons and sometimes the catalinas print out coupons and people don’t take them. Every time I see her now she hands me a few. Today she gave me a $5 off $70 order. It was a big shopping week for me so I knew I would hit that $70 point. So I saved $5 extra just by knowing the people that work there.
This is such great advice! Even if you don’t get a $5 off coupon for your next order, a friendly relationship with the cashiers can definitely help to ease any coupon snafus.
Have you developed a coupon hack to smooth the way with your strategic shopping? I’d love to hear about it! Share in the comments section, or send me an email at kosheronabudget @ gmail . com.
