January sales have now passed and you may think that your period of grabbing up bargains is over until next year comes around. But no matter what time of year it is, you should always be keeping an eye out for savings. While cut prices and discounts may not be printed in bold on storefronts and advertising billboards, they are still there to be found. You just need to keep an eye out for them. A good place to start is couponing. Couponing is a great way to save money no matter what you’re planning on buying. Chances are that you’ve seen programmes on extreme couponing… people keeping files and files of cut out coupons, spending them all in one fell swoop and causing queues at the tills that could easily leave a new cashier traumatised. This isn’t what we’re suggesting, though we’d pat you on the back if you had the time and investment to engage with it. It’s important to remember that this is extreme couponing and that not all couponing is like this. Here are a few ways to use coupons in a more casual manner!

Put the scissors down

Yes, coupons are available in newspapers, magazines and various other publications. You may receive some at the till when you complete your purchase, to be used next time you’re in the store. But not all coupons have to be tangible. In fact, you can get plenty of coupons online. This saves the hassle of cutting out coupons and trying to store them somewhere that they won’t get lost.

Space You Couponing Out

You don’t have to conduct huge trips to the store, stockpiling and bulk buying to get the most out of your coupons. You certainly don’t need to load up your yearly grocery shop onto the belt at the tills. The key to efficient couponing that won’t leave you overwhelmed is to be organised and vigilant. If you know you have a specific purchase coming up in the near future, keep an eye out for voucher codes that could prove useful.

Avoid Distractions

When you enter a store, know what it is that you’re looking for. Don’t wander aimlessly, as you’ll end up picking up useless bits and bobs. This will waste both time and money. Have a shopping list with all the necessary items. If you can’t find something, you might just be looking in the wrong place. Never hesitate to ask an assistant in store for the items’ exact locations, or to show you to them. This way nothing is missed out and you go home with everything you had coupons for.

Shop Online

Online shopping is perhaps the easiest way to organise your couponing. If items are out of stock, you can order them to be delivered at a later date or into the store. You won’t get to store and have a wasted journey. You can also search for coupons as you shop. See an item you like? Browse coupon sites to check if there are any offers and deals on it! A lot of stores will also offer price match, so if you have a coupon that makes something cheaper somewhere else, most stores will offer you the same price for them.

So, there you have it! Couponing really can be a simple and efficient way to save money!
