This is a concept that tends to confuse frugal shoppers (and some cashiers as well). Here are some tips about how to use multiple coupons for those of you who are new to couponing.

How to I Use Multiple Coupons?
This is a concept that confuses many people who are new to couponing. You may be surprised by how easy it really is to use multiple coupons. A quick example might clarify things for you.

You find a coupon that will save you $1.00 when you buy 1 can of Campbell’s soup. Obviously, you realize that you can use that coupon if you purchase 1 can of Campbell’s soup. Let’s say you were really lucky and you just so happened to have four of those coupons. You have multiple copies of that coupon. Now, you can use each coupon on 1 can of Campbell’s soup. So, instead of getting the savings from using 1 coupon you get the savings from 4 coupons. You end up with 4 cans of Campbell’s soup that cost you less money than if you bought them without using multiple coupons.

Where Do I Get Multiple Coupons?
There is more than one technique that people use to get multiple coupons. A simple way is to find online coupons that allow you to print out 2 or more copies of it.

Other people dig through the recycling bin at their office, their child’s school, or other places that end up with newspaper inserts in their bins. This isn’t going to be the best choice for everyone. Some prefer to use this technique when they know of an awesome coupon that is in a particular newspaper from a certain Sunday (instead of doing this all the time).

Another way to get multiple coupons is to have your friends and relatives, (who don’t coupon) send you their newspaper inserts. They are not going to use those coupons anyway! If you get really serious about couponing, you can purchase multiple copies of Sunday papers (that have the coupon inserts), pay for a coupon clipping service, or organize a coupon swap with your friends.

Things to Know Before You Shop
Using multiple coupons means buying several packages of the exact same product. Is it one your family will use? How many do you already have at home? Figure this out before you shop, so you won’t accidentally get way too many of something. Find out what the store’s current coupon policy is regarding multiple coupons. It is also wise to read the fine print on the coupon, to see if it says “one per transaction” or “one per 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.
