Clipping coupons and find anything that is discounted

I just won't believe that I would do something like that, but under such financial pressure, and my pocket is tight. I should consider saving money as my priority. Many people of us might not even thought about using coupons before, but actually, it is fun to calculate and try to find a way to save money and pinch your wallet right? I start to look for promotional code online for shopping; and I start to notice about those daily or weekly ads come with coupons. I just never imagine how much money I could save by using them.

As a friend said, "You start to notice the ground if the sky is being dimmed down." I experienced the same thing in college. My aunt was the one putting me to school. One day, she got delayed on sending my allowance and I had to collect all the coins lying around at home. To my suprise, all of the coins summed up to P150.00, which is enough for my fair to school and my lunch.

I would use coupons more often if they were more readily available to me. We do not get coupons in our newspaper weekly. I have tried to look for some online but most of the sites do no have coupons for the items I am looking for.

Here in my country, we don't even have such coupons in order to save money from groceries. Almost every basic commodity that we have has increased in prices and this includes gas. The only option for me to save money from grocery shopping is that I have had to let go of my usual treats. This means the imported items like cheeses and snacks that I keep stock of. Now, I only buy what is necessary in order to keep within the limits of my budget.

I have tried to use coupons a few times. Most of the time when I did collect coupons, they went unused because I either couldn't find the product or I found a different product for less money. I usually just compare prices when shopping and get what is cheapest. If I have a coupon for the product then great. But I won't buy a more expensive product that I have a coupon for unless I can see that I will really save money by using it. The coupons I always liked was the one that said if you spent a certain amount (like $35) that you would get $5 off the purchase. If I was spending that much anyway it was a good deal. This would be a good deal for big families that often spent that much. Thanks for bringing up the topic.
