Are you in a Coupon Rut?

Are you in a Coupon Rut?

Every so often I get into a coupon rut where I let coupons pile up before sorting them.  Sometimes I get lazy and don’t run to all the stores I intend to take advantage of the deals.  It is ok, this happens to everyone!  Don’t feel that you are the only one that gets into this so called Coupon Rut; it happens to us all.  Many take weeks, months and even a year off. Bottom line, our lives can get busy.

If you have been on the couponing journey for a while, you will notice that the coupon community has changed, especially with more restrictions on coupons.  Does that mean there still aren’t any deals?  No, there are still deals that come up every week!  Make sure to check the Coupon Match Ups every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon for new match ups!

The difference in couponing, compared to 2012, is that many coupons are printables so you have to get use to printing the new coupons as they are released.  You can go HERE to see the newly released coupons and go HERE to see a list of printable sites.  Today there are more Extreme Couponers compared to 2012, so to score the deal you have to train yourself to get to the store the before other Extreme Couponers arrive on the morning the day the sale starts to not miss the deal.  To give yourself an edge, watch on Instagram to find out about the active deals.  Use hashtags to see what others are finding in your area or nationwide like #targetclearance #walmartclearance #hawaiishopaholics #live808tpr etc…

In addition, make sure you use smartphone apps to help with couponing – this is important.  More and more apps are appearing each year with many being coupon apps.  HERE is a list of coupon apps.  The coupons apps are all very similar with a few variations from each app.  For the most past, the list of coupons on the app will change or reset weekly.  When you’re ready to checkout, open the app, buy the product listed on app from a store, scan the bar code of the product in the app, snap a picture of the receipt and you will earn the cash back within the app.  Most apps have a minimum to earn before you will be able receive your money, like $10 or so.  Most apps will either be by paypal, a check, or select a gift card.

Now to the fun part – some basic tips to not have couponing take over your life.  First and foremost, don’t let it become a full time job. Instead let couponing become a part of your life!

Here are some tips to get out of the coupon rut:

  • Take a step back – like taking a week off from couponing every few months.
  • Spend time to Get Organized
  • Limit the amount of stores you go to, so you don’t get overwhelmed.
  • Find a good balance – Most of us are moms, home care takers, and more.  Think of buying what you can online.
  • Remember price matching can save you from having to bounce to different stores.
  • Use ShopSavvy app to scan items to find the cheapest price available.
  • Use apps like iBotta, Checkout51, SavingStar, MobiSave, Shrink, Find&Save & more to help save more money.  In the digital age we live in these money saving apps are becoming more popular!  We just have to get use to downloading the apps and scanning the apps for deals.
  • Find Coupon friends to help keep you motivated to couponing.  With anything when you form a group or have a good friend who shares a similar interest you will stay in tune and continue to motivate each other.  I recommend the Grocery Swaps and Coupon Swaps where you can meet others in the Coupon Community.  Join Hawaii Shopaholics Group on Facebook to share your deals and meet other couponers.
  • Share your deals with your friends.  It is exciting when you feel you scored an awesome deal.  Snap a photo and share on your Facebook and Instagram accounts.  Your friends will comment with how did you do that?  You might meet your couponing best friend this way and encourage other friends to save money for their family.
  • Being a couponer means you want to live a frugal lifestyle.  It’s important to remember there are many other ways to live a frugal lifestyle other than couponing, so be creative.  What other ways can you live a frugal lifestyle?  There is many like finding online shopping deals, making money from taking surveys like Inbox DollarsSwagbucks and dealSpotR.  Sign up for samples, enter sweepstakes and more.  My biggest tip is enter the sweepstakes.  They take less than 2 minutes to enter and you have the chance to win a lot of fun stuff including vacations, cars and more!

Now are you ready to get back on the Coupon Train!  Get out of your Coupon Rut, hop back on and enjoy the savings!!   And of course, happy shopping!
