Being the mom of a family on one income means I am in charge of stretching our money as far as it can go. I have a weekly budget of around $100 to spend on food and household items like diapers and toilet paper. It has taken me a lot of practice to get our budget for my family of 4 down to this amount (that’s only $100 per person a month!) I wanted to take a quick moment to share with you one trick that I LOVE that I think lot’s of people don’t take advantage of and that trick is digital coupons. I know that sometimes the savings a coupon offers doesn’t sound worth the time (like .35 cents off), but I have tracked my coupon savings and let me tell you it all adds up. Itry to save at least $5 a week using couponswhich saves $260 a year that can go towards something way more fun!
I recently signed up for the Dollar General Digital Coupons program. The cool thing about it is you don’t have to print the coupons out-that’s right, no printing, cutting, wasting ink or your time. All you have to do is click the coupons you like on your computer and go shop. Digital coupons are a fast and easy way to save! Tip: What I do is only click the items that I regularly buy for my family…this sounds like a no brainer but when I first started using digital coupons I clicked on everything…after awhile I realized it made it hard to keep track of them all and the ones I should have used expired because I forgot about it. Before I go shopping I like to refresh my memory by taking a look at what coupons I have ready to use. Tip: I also like to look at the current Ad because if you can match a coupon with a sale priceyour savings will be amazing! I always feel kind of sneaky when I save so much money on products that other people are paying full price for. To use your Dollar General coupons you just enter your phone number at checkout. Easy Peasy!
They currently have a buy 1 get 1 free Play-Doh set coupon that I can’t wait to use 🙂 Their is also a special $8 worth of savings now until 2/28/15
