Don’t use coupons or rewards card
Even if you think $.50 here and $.75 there isn’t much, they certainly add up. Haven’t you seen the TV show Extreme Couponing and how much those people save? Start clipping out coupons and bringing them with you to the store. You can even store them in your wallet so you won’t forget. Also be on the lookout for store coupons that cashiers print out after your purchase.
Speaking of purchase, do you have a rewards card at your supermarket(s) of choice? Hello, they are free and allow you to save on certain buys via membership perks! Head to the customer service counter to sign up.
