So as you may already know, my sister has been learning to coupon each week at CVS. I thought it would be fun for her to share how it was going, in her own words. (Although, anything she says about me, probably is NOT true). Each week she will provide you with the tips she has learned.
They have had enough. After many years of helping myself to my sisters and mothers hard earned stockpile, I had been cut off. I had to learn to do this thing for myself.
Shannon has agreed to help me become a couponer. To start things off, I have been shopping at CVS and trying my hand at the art of couponing. So far, I have unknowingly committed coupon fraud (twice), forgot my coupons at home, missed a cashiers mistake, and cried in my car.
But, I can see that the benefits of couponing outweigh the small setbacks and I am starting to enjoy the trips to CVS . The encouragement from the FTM readers is most helpful, all of your tips have been great.
I hope the newbie couponers on this site can relate to the hurdles I have been experiencing, so here is my tip to share with the newbies.
Natalie’s Tip for this week:
Be prepared before you leave the house. Have all of your coupons and ads readily available. I have been using a clear binder sleeve to keep my coupons and ecb’s safe. Otherwise, you will be chasing them around the parking lot. Not that I would know anything about that.
Til next week..
