5 Secret Places to Look for Coupons

Inside the Package
Before you recycle that empty box, take a look at the inside of the package. This could mean you have to tear open the box and flatten it out. Sometimes, there will be a coupon printed on the inside. You can also occasionally find a manufacturers coupon that has been wrapped in plastic and stuffed into a box of cereal or pasta.

On a Facebook Page

That post could get lost in the pile of posts from everyone you follow or all the companies you “like”. You may miss that coupon if you don’t visit the company’s Facebook page at the right time.

Peelies

A peelie is a coupon that the manufacturer decided to stick onto a particular product. It is rarely announced beforehand. If you find a peelie, point it out to the cashier when you are ready to make your purchase (or she might miss it).

Hangtags
These coupons are attached around the neck of bottle. It could be attached to a glass bottle of wine, a plastic 2-liter of soda, or something else. Sometimes, they look like a small advertisement that the manufacturer has placed around the neck of the bottle. Look closer. There could be a coupon on it!

Next to the Product

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
