I have a team of great coupon newbies signed up to take part, and we’ll be posting the ten step couponing course on the blog for others to learn from at the same time. What I want is to create hundreds and hundreds of new coupon mavens who never pay for toiletries and household products again! Especially during this economic crisis, it is more important than ever to use all the tools at our disposal to improve our financial situations, and this is one of the *best* ways out there.
As you will soon see, it’s incredible how fee people use it! If you’d like to participate to share your stories pictures with the rest of the online class, email me at SavingMoneyPlan(at)gmail(dot)com.
Now, let’s talk about couponing.
What is the purpose of the 10-step Couponing Course?
The premise of a coupon is simple. You get a coupon, you use it to save money. However, many people believe you can’t really save much money with coupons. These naysayers, you see, simply don’t know how to use them correctly. It’s time that you start reaping the rewards that thousands of thousands of Americans are enjoying – free toiletries and household items.
What you need if you want to participate:
1. You need to want to do this.
To me, this is fun. It’s also one of the best kept secrets about saving tons of money every month to free up your budget for fresh food items and other things on your list. I love getting tons of makeup, toiletries, face washes, razors, toilet paper, candy, non-perishable food and regular household products free. Now that I hardly ever pay for anything at CVS or Walgreens, it’s almost painful to watch all those people shelling out 20 bucks for shampoo. But heck, this whole couponing thing might sound like the most boring thing on the planet. If that’s you – don’t do it!
2. You need these items:
– A box or drawer you will devote to this project
– A marker or pen
– A notebook
– A calculator
– A Sunday newspaper every Sunday
3. You need to commit to doing these 2 things every week if you want to see success:
– Come to this blog at least once a week to read what your directions are for what you need to do this week to get your free items.
– Go to Walgreens or CVS (or both, if you get excited by all the free stuff you are getting) that week following the directions.
So – do you want to jump on board!
The next class begins Monday December 8 – so look in your inbox that day for your first issue of the How to Coupon Class!
