Using Coupons when Shopping

by Doris Donnerman
(last updated February 21, 2009)

Coupons are great for saving money—if you remember to hand them over at the checkout counter. To jog your memory, bring a large paper clip with your coupons. As you find an item, clip the appropriate coupon to the front of your purse. When you go to check out, your coupons will be ready to save you money.

It is easy to get flustered in a busy market so anything to help at the check out is a great idea.
