Coupon Clipping is basically trawling through magazines and newspapers and cutting out the coupons (usually at the back) and taking them into stores to save yourself money. It’s a big thing in the US but hasn’t taken off in the UK where I live. I can see that it can really help families save money. I remember switching channels and even seeing the Kardashians doing this. I mean come on do they really need to save money when they get millions from this crappy reality program! No offence if you actually like it, just my opinion! I have also seen a couple of US tv shows following families saving most of their grocerie shopping and paying next to nothing at the checkout. I can see the appeal and satisfaction of getting that much food and drink and paying almost nothing for it. I think I’d be way to embarrassed to be at the cashier with hundreds of toilet rolls or some other random product times a huge amount and a queue behind me!
My thoughts on this though as much as it can save you loads of money is how much time you must have to put into this! I mean it must take hours out of your life just going through these printable papers and only to save maybe £100. I always like to value time as well as money, after all couldn’t you be using that time and putting it to better use!
Rant over and just something I wanted to share with my readers!
