Aaaah Sunday… a day of leisure and relaxation or church and an afternoon of football games. No matter what you do on Sunday to be truly frugal the Sunday paper should be part of your routine. Why? The Sunday paper has coupons and sales papers. Using coupons on items that you regularly use or new products that you want to try is a great way to save money for other purposes. Use coupons on items that you stock upon such as personal hygiene items, paper goods, or cleaning products. Non-perishable items always seem to cost more when you really need them, so plan ahead, if you can. When those items go on sale, stock up so when you run out you won’t have to pay exorbitant prices on your favorite brand.
Also, sales papers from electronics, office supply, and clothing stores may give you a tip on prices for gifts you might want to buy for any holidays. This doesn’t mean that you have to buy the items, but by looking at the papers when you do need to purchase a certain item, then you have an idea what the item will cost and can budget for it. A really hot item like a toy, or game or accessory may be on sale around Halloween and increase in price so start planning now.
What are you waiting for? Get out there and clip some coupons!
