Are you looking for more ways to save money?
Then you’ve come to the right place!
We know staying on budget can be hard at times. Excluding our indulgences, there are essentials that we need day to day that we can’t afford to not buy. That’s why we have listed in this article not only how to save money but where to find the tools to help you on your frugal journey.
As you have probably heard, coupons are one of the best ways to save money on most, if not all, of your daily essentials. Coupons can be found online and offline and this article will guide you to the exact spots to get the best ones.
First, on the list are newspaper coupons. And although some might say they’re old-fashioned, they still work. If you get the Sunday paper, utilizing these coupons is as easy as stepping outside your front door. If you don’t get the paper, signing up can be very beneficial if you’re trying to save money but not necessary as you can buy the newspaper on a week to week basis depending on your couponing needs.
Another way to save money is with in-store coupons. The coupon community refers to some of these coupons as “blinkies” and you can usually find them down the store aisles on blinking machines that will eject money-saving slips. While shopping, you might also want to check out the store’s paper located at most entrances. This in-store paper can offer a variety of savings and it is perfect for last-minute deals. Once you’ve collected all your coupons and you’ve paid for your purchases, be sure to check your receipt as oftentimes there are more deals located at the bottom or back of the receipt. These are called Catalina coupons and they can be very rewarding.
In-store and newspaper coupons are easy to use and can save you a lot of money, but an even easier way to save money is by downloading coupon apps. Coupon apps are convenient because of their easy accessibility and with the amount of data your phone can go through there is less of a chance that you will miss out on savings. We have listed some of our favorites below.
- Shopkick. This app offers a myriad of rewards. Some of these savings can be accessed by just walking into a store, others can be accessed by scanning your receipt and/or buying certain items. The app keeps track of all your rewards making things easy and hassle-free for you.
- SnipSnap.This app is a crowd favorite and for good reason. It allows you to take pictures of your coupons and then use them in-store straight from the app. It’s easy to use and convenient as you can store and organize all your coupons in one place and access them whenever you are ready to save money.
- Yowza. Last on the list of coupon apps is Yowza. Yowza is great because it allows retailers to advertise exactly which stores have money-saving coupons available. You can search the app by store/brand or by simply turning on the location services and allowing the app to show you deals in your general vicinity.
