Coupons Are Only Beneficial If You Use Them

CouponsBefore getting ready to go shopping, I checked out the websites of my favorite brands of products.  I printed out any coupons they were offering, cut them out, and stuck them in my wallet.  I “liked” a chocolate page on Facebook to get a coupon for a free bag of chocolate truffles, but the ink cartridge in my printer was low and only printed with yellow ink.  I couldn’t re-print the coupon, so I hoped it would work anyway.

When shopping though, most of the products I had coupons for weren’t in stock.  I got so frustrated that I quit checking my coupons all together.  I checked out without using a single coupon, and I missed out on getting my free chocolate truffles in the process.

I love coupons.  Sometimes they really do help me save money.  They won’t save me any money if I don’t use them though.

If I’m going to take the time to locate and clip coupons, I should at least use as many of them as possible.  Instead I get frustrated, forget to use them, or leave them in my van.  Even if I only save a few dollars, money is money.  Saving some is better than saving none.  Coupons can  be very beneficial, but only if I actually use them.

    Oh my goodness use them. I save so much with coupons. I am able to get so much more for my kids, pets, and home. There’s no way I could provide everything without coupons. Use them. Seriously.
