Most of us know that using coupons can help us to save money. But have you thought of sharing your new couponing habit with someone? Let’s talk about how a couponing buddy can actually help you to keep more cash in your wallet!
Couponing buddies motivate each other. This is one of the top reasons you want to find one. Research has shown that when you want to remove a bad habit or to develop a new good habit, if you do this with someone – you actually have a much stronger chance of success. Because the two of you will help cheer each other along towards your goals.
You teach them & they teach you. If you’ve started couponing then you’ve probably picked up a few tips such as learning how to follow a grocery store’s sale cycle and how to notice sale items in the circular that would be perfect to pair with a coupon. Well, your couponing buddy may have picked up other tips as well. The two of you can teach and “coach” each other, so your couponing knowledge only continues to increase! Best of all, this in many ways motivates you to keep learning new tips because you have someone who is just as excited as you are to learn them.
Share cash saving coupons with each other. Now some people focus on this as one of the main reasons to have a couponing buddy, but we’d like to encourage you to consider it simply as a side benefit. Coupons today with helpful online sites have become easier to find than ever before. But your couponing buddy might have extra coupons to share with you, just as you do with them. Or they could be on the lookout for coupons that you use regularly and you can do the same for them.
Go to the grocery store together. Don’t miss the opportunity to grocery shop together if you are couponing buddies. This is similar to taking a class together and going on a field trip to an interesting place. Even when you are in the grocery store you both may discover even more money saving tips. You will learn by watching them grocery shop and they will learn by seeing you do so. Why, you might even see fellow coupon shoppers as well, who can share tips with you too!
Set couponing goals and push to stay on track. As the year goes on, your couponing needs may change. You may want to stock up on snacks for the kids during the Back to School season. Or have a lot of family coming to visit during Thanksgiving time. Setting couponing goals and working with your buddy can help you to stay on target with them.
It’s fun! Yes, we know it takes effort to gather your coupons and organize your shopping. But there is thrill unlike any other when you approach that grocery store cash register and you start to see the checker entering your coupons. You realize that you are saving a fortune! Instead of paying $50 for groceries, you are paying $18. All of those coupons and special offers you’ve found continue to add up. Its money you can put towards your child’s education, a family vacation, household repairs or whatever you desire. But most of all couponers feel a certain amount of pride because they’ve helped their families save money – and that’s important!
