I got this insert from a fellow blogger, thought it was too good not to pass it on. I know how hard and intimidating it can be just starting off or becoming more serious about couponing. Enjoy and I can't wait to see what you all have to say!
On a fairly regular basis, I receive emails from newbie couponers that say they want to give up….. They want to throw in the towel and the coupons ! They’ve had a bad experience with a mean cashier, their coupon beeped, they’ve invested 5 hours organizing and still don’t know what is what, they’ve over-spent at the grocery store because their coupons didn’t scan properly, the person behind them in the checkout line scowled and glared…. And the list goes on and on.
I know from experience that couponing can definitely present a variety of challenges, but I also know that in the long run, it is absolutely worth it! I am dedicated to providing words of encouragement and sharing my own experiences as a means to help beginner couponers have a successful journey into the amazing world of saving money. Today, I ask you to do the same…. Please lift the spirits of these struggling readers by leaving words of motivation, inspiration, and wisdom below.
So if you have a story or have some words of encouragement please pass them on to other couponer's that are just starting out or have recently gotten discouraged by using coupons! Just a little bit of extra push could help that person save their family a lot of money.
I'll start: This ones for all of you just starting out!
Start small! Pick one or two stores to concentrate on deals and then once you feel comfortable you can expand to more and more. Getting overwhelmed will burn you out quick and may even discourage you from continuing on.
Now it's your turn!
