Frugal Column Sunday August 28

According to Promotion Marketing Association Coupon Council when you spend twenty minutes a week couponing you can save up to $1,000 a year. When I started writing this column my mission was to save you money which it still is but I also want to go one step further by helping you live better. As the economy gets better all of my frugal friends will have strategies in place that will make a tight budget work in their favor. Use my expert advice to guide you on your frugal ways.

Use these ways to start saving:
The number one way is still using coupons from Sunday’s paper. Purchase a small accordion style folder to categorize your coupons. Being organized will make your grocery store experience satisfying.

Use your loyalty cards. You can cut costs by visiting Kroger’s website then loading digital coupons on your Kroger Plus card which will be redeemed when you are checking out. The next new way of savings is loading coupons on your loyalty cards at but when you swipe your card nothing will be deducted from your bill but will be deposited into your PayPal account or you can receive gift cards.

“Like” brands on facebook. Giving away free samples or coupons on product’s facebook page is the way of the future. You can hear about special giveaways, events, coupons that they will offer throughout the year. Check out your favorite product’s facebook page to start saving.

The Herald Leader is now offering a $52 dollars a year Sunday paper subscription. I will show you with future coupon savings how to make this purchase profitable. Follow me now on Sundays!
