Couponing Myths BUSTED! Part II
Myth #8: You should only clip coupons for products you normally use
False. If you can get items for free or super cheap why wouldn’t you? You’d be surprise how most products are pretty much the same quailty, they just come in different packaging. If you just can’t bring yourself to separate from the norm you can always donate. You could donate as far and your family and friends or to shelters, food pantries etc.
Myth #9: Shopping multiple stores to save money isn’t saving money.
Negative ghost writer. Most of the time you are going to have a grocery store and drug store in the same shopping complex or at least across the street. Pick an area close to home that has the most variation of stores. Then you aren’t wasting gas. You can also think of it this way. If you end up spending $50 for $300 in products and use and extra gallon or tow you’ve still saved almost $300! Hello, great savings versus saving $5 in gas…hmmm, let’s just think about that.
Myth #10: You end up spending more with coupons.
Yes you heard me. People have actually said this. Here’s the deal. If you purchase something solely b/c you have a coupon then it’s not very smart couponing is it? If you have to purchase 2 items to savc a buck but it cost $3 more and isn’t on sale, why would you? Buy one and wait for the sale to use the coupon with.
