Let’s face it, with the prices of diapers these days, it is no wonder that so many people have been going back to cloth diapers like the good old days. If you aren’t so brave than you will want to take advantage of these coupons when they come around. Pampers have been on sale at both Target and Walmart so you might be able to snag a great deal!
To help make your coupon shopping experience more pleasant, you should look for friendly, smiling cashiers. It doesn’t hurt to do a lap around the registers to find that right cashier. Some cashiers are easier to deal with than others and you can usually tell by their body language or how they are responding to other customers they are helping.
Some people call this “cashier profiling” but really you need to find someone that you feel comfortable with and know you can work with as you hand them your stacks of coupons and begin to check out. If you are not sure who would be the best fit for you, your cart and your bulging coupon binder, then ask a manager! In most cases managers are more than happy to help you out, and sometimes they will even ring you up themselves.
No matter what your experience is, go or bad make sure you smile and say thank you!
The number one way to save money with coupons is to wait on the weekly sales. Do not use a coupon unless you have a deal to match it up with.
Most coupons are on a 45 day rotation. What this means is that just because the coupon is getting ready to expire, nine times out of ten it getting ready to come back out the next week. People who practice in this type of saving technique cut hundreds off their food bills.
Generally all sales papers come out on Tuesday and the sales run from Wednesday to Tuesday.
Did you know that coupons are more like cash than trash? Many stores will give you cash back if the coupon happens to be more than the item is worth. Take Wal-Mart as an example, in their policy it states there is no limit to the number of coupons you can use. It also states that if the coupon is more than the purchase price that they will give the customer the difference back in cash or apply it to the basket purchase!
There is also the point that expired coupons are not trash either. Did you know you could send your expired coupon to solider over-seas? A solider can use an expired coupon at the mobile PX up to six months after it has expired overseas. Click here to find out more information about this great program.
To find the best deals in town you should shop more at stores that Stack coupons for you. Stacking coupons is when the store will let you use more than one coupon per item. Here is an example of Stacking coupons:
Target has an on line printable coupon for $5.00 off Imas dog food.
P&G insert has a manufactures coupon for $2.00 off Iams dog food.
Target will let you use both coupons for one bag of Iams dog food. Target sells the dog food for $6.79, so you just got the one bag of dog food for FREE!
*This is only an example to help explain how stacking coupons work. We are not saying in form that these coupons are in circulation at this time.
Here’s a great coupon for that super yummy Bridgeford Monkey Bread! This would be great to have on Christmas morning or to take to an event at Church! It is super easy to make and I have never had anyone pass this up when I have made it! All the gooey, cinnamon goodness is always a family favorite around here paired with a big glass of milk! Okay, now I am hungry!
The coupon says “available at Walmart” but this is just an ad and you can use the coupon anyplace you like. I know that this is carried at many different stores! They are also great to keep in the freezer when you need a sweet treat in a hurry!
