One great irony of life is that people find it so easy to spend money and yet, it’s twice as hard to save money.
According to some surveys, almost 80% of consumers spend their money easily, and find it difficult to save even a mere 10% of their income. They insist that they have more expenses than they can handle which is why it’s so hard to create a decent amount of savings.
What people don’t know is that they can easily save more money even on their daily expenses.
The point is, that if you want to save money, you should take advantage of freebies and discounts that can absolutely cut your expenses almost in half.
One of the best examples is using coupons to save.
There’s no shame in coupons people 😉
Some people think that these freebies offer too little discount to be worth the effort, but that’s not always the case. If you’re not finding coupons or freebies that’re “worth your while” you’re not looking in the right places.
So, for those who are not yet fully aware of the benefits they can come from cashing in on good coupons, here are some tips:
- Shop Online
This is the 21st century. You don’t need to scour your local newspaper for anything anymore. Any and everything you want is available by doing a search at your fingertips.
If you’re looking for coupons or freebies from a particular product or service, Google it! Whether it’s for a brick and mortar store, or for an online retailer, doing a search online for discounts is bound to turn up something valuable.
2. Money Back Counts
If you can get cash back on your purchases, it’s kinda’ the same as using a coupon.
Some credit cards give a percentage of your purchase back in cash, and so do some bank cards. You can also shop through sites like this one, which racks up cash to your account every time you shop at any of their hundreds of online merchants!
3. Sign up for Newsletters
Some online stores (and even some brick and mortar stores) will send you a discount code when you sign up for their newsletter. There are even some stores where, the more often you give them your email address, the better discount level you receive by email. Cool right?
The advantage of money saving coupons is that they can cut your bill sometimes by up to 50%.
