Secret #1: First and foremost, do not clip unless it’s for a product and brand that you use or will use to substitute for something you normally use. Keep in mind that the manufacturer’s main purpose of coupons is not to save you as a consumer money but to get you to try a different brand or buy more than you would normally buy.
My final advice is to be a responsible coupon clipper . . . meaning don’t try to use coupons that have expired or try to use them for products not included in the discount. Read that coupon carefully and make sure you are buying the right product. Stores are extra careful with coupons these days . . . play by the rules and you’ll be saving $$ in no time! Happy Clipping!
