Learning how to clip and save

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…”

For online resources, Kim frequents the couponing website CouponDivas as well as the clipping service CouponDede.

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)
