Coupon - a ticket or document that can be exchanged for a financial discount or rebate when purchasing a product.
This would include cents off, money back rebates, buy one get one, online promo codes and others. Most everyone reading this uses coupons in some capacity. This means that most everyone can say, "Yes, I use coupons." But still there remains some myths about coupons that continue through years.

Typically, just walking into a store and picking up what you need can save you up to 25%, but with coupons, sales, size bought and doubling you can push that savings up to 50- 80% or more. On a $50 grocery bill that is an extra 12.50-40.00 in savings. Now is it worth the time?
The other part is just getting into a habit of having the coupons around to use. Well, consider them as cash, would you leave your wallet at home? Keep your coupons near your purse or wallet and toss in the car as you go to work on Monday. Coupons are the jelly to your peanut butter wallet.
