When to use coupons
There are still plenty of opportunities available to pull out those scissors and cut coupons. Weekly mailers and grocer’s ads still have paper coupons that are worth saving, but only for those items that you regularly buy. For example, if you usually buy All laundry detergent and see a coupon for another brand, don’t bother to cut that coupon unless the savings makes the other brand less than what you normally spend for All. Otherwise, you’re still going to spend more money on your budget just to try another brand.
