Coupons – are they worth it?
When people find out how often I use coupons, they often ask me if I find using coupons worth my time.
The answer is always a resounding yes, absolutely.
If I didn’t use coupons, I wouldn’t be able to shop in my basement.
How much time do I spend hunting for deals?
– 15 minutes per day ordering/printing coupons online
– 1 hour per week clipping and organizing coupons
– 1 hour per week planning our weekly menu, my shopping list and pulling coupons
– 1-2 hours per week to grocery shop
So for 3-4 hours per week, I am able to buy groceries at less than 50% off the regular price, try products I would not normally buy due to price, shop in my own home when I run out of something, and donate to those less fortunate.
So, yes, couponing is worth it.
