I realized how many of you have no idea the power of a 50¢ coupon.
Have you wondered why someone would print a 50¢ off a box of cereal coupon? If so my brother who helps me run a deal blog, said the same thing.
WHY YOU ACTUALLY NEED 4 BOXES OF CEREAL AT A TIME
Here’s the deal. Let’s say you don’t pay attention to sale prices, ( I know most of you do but stick with me here)
You buy a box of cereal at a full price of $4.
The box lasts you one full week.
You buy cereal every week at the full price of $4- that’s $16 total for the month. My brother would be saying’ Big deal $16 for cereal?”
Now let’s say you bought cereal the couponer’s way. On sale paired with a coupon.
Let’s say the cereal is on sale for 1.99 a box.
You have FOUR $0.50/1 coupons and your store doubles coupons up to $0.99 everyday! ( Locals Tops and Wegman’s do this)
You buy four boxes and use four coupons and pay $3.96 or $0.99 a box.
If you only ate one box a week you would pay $3.96 a month instead of $16.
Imagine if you could start buying ALL your items for prices like that. The savings would be huge.
This is how we paid off all our debt. You start small and work your way up. You change your mindset to grab items when they are at their lowest price and stock up. The key is to NOT buy things when they are full price.
Right now you should agree to never pay for anything full price again.
This is how stockpiling with coupons comes to be. Buying items at the lowest price. It’s just a matter of combining a coupon with a sale price.
One of my first viral posts here on the site was ” How Couponing Destroyed our Debt.”
Couponing brought a shift in our mindset. It set us on the path of the three p’s to financial freedom.
If you have a family you know that one box of cereal won’t last for more than two kids a week. Couponing and buying groceries this way will save your family a lot of money on groceries.
