Weekly Tip: Use coupons to save money when buying.

The average American consumer spends a lot of money at stores. There’s around $150 a week on food. Then there’s pharmacy costs, clothing, entertainment, and everything else. Using coupons, however, can be a good way to save money while buying. From grocery stores to restaurants to name brand stores and boutiques, almost every store has coupons these days. And by bringing just a simple coupon, you can get what you need at a discounted price, saving you significant amounts of money.
So, how can you use coupons to save?
It’s important not to buy just to buy. Just because you have a coupon for applesauce, it doesn’t mean you have to buy 10 jars of applesauce. Use coupons only when you need them. For instance, if you know you need a new pair of boots, look online or in your local newspaper for coupons. There are a plethora of options for you to choose from, and oftentimes, it can result in tens, if not hundreds, of dollars in savings. 
And if you do get a coupon for something you use often, save it. Grocery stores tend to give out coupons at checkout, so save the ones that you use! You’ll end up spending a lot less on your everyday shopping simply by pulling out a coupon.
