ONLINE ONLY TIPS — Mother, nurse and coupon-clipper Kim Morris is saving her family hundreds of dollars with a new hobby that’s become a practical passion. Read how in this week’s “A Conversation With…”
Check out more of her tips below.
— Know what’s a deal. Take a notebook to the grocery store and write down prices to compare.
— Check clearance racks. Even if you’re not planning to buy something, if you have a coupon for it, it may be nearly free.
— Smaller is better. It seems like a bigger package is a better deal, but you’ll save more by applying dollar-off coupons to smaller-size items.
— Take your time. The Morrises often do their shopping in the early morning or late at night so that they don’t rush and needn’t fight the crowds.
— Leave the kids at home. Even the most patient child won’t let you spend two hours or more in a store browsing every aisle. (June 23, 2011, Page 3)
