  • Magazines 
  • In-Store 

  Ask neighbors and friends if you can have their Sunday inserts for even more.

Pitfalls of Coupons: 

 
1. Overspending to get a “deal”.
 
2. Buying items that will not be used before they expire, because you have  coupon.
 
3. Buying an item you wouldn’t normally use because of a coupon. Don’t let coupons tell you what to buy.

4. Just because you have a coupon doesn’t mean its a good deal.

5. Spending hours and hours clipping coupons. Let’s all stay balanced and not obsess in any once area of our lives, deal?
