  1. You have an alert on your phone to remind you to buy Sunday papers. The alert goes off on Monday.
  2. You buy at least 3 Sunday newspapers, depending on what the inserts have in store that week. Oh yeah, and you wake up at 5 a.m. Sunday morning to be the first one at the newspaper stand. Once you’ve scored your papers, you head to the nearest coffee vendor to get energized before heading home to start your coupon clipping (using a coupon for your coffee, of course).
  3. You had to buy a bigger purse to accommodate your coupon binder. You bought a bigger coupon binder last week … it’s getting serious.
  4. You often find yourself pacing around public areas where people leave newspapers. The barista at your local coffee-house are starting to wonder about you.
  5. You’re friends and family have started to coupon … because Bingo night at your house last week turned into “How to Coupon” night. You even had a slide show presentation.
  6. You’ve bought things you don’t need just because there was a coupon. Can’t… waste… coupon…
  7. You could survive an apocalypse with the stockpile in your basement. People laugh, but you know what’s up.
  8. Sometimes the thought of missing out on a killer deal keeps you awake at night.
  9. You can’t remember the last time you paid the full price for anything because, oh baby, you know there’s a coupon for everything and anything.
  10. You plan your life around what you have coupons for. Meal plans, entertainment, travel … it drove your family crazy before you converted them to your way of life.
  11. You have at least 5 coupon websites bookmarked on your web browser. And you visit all of them, every day.
  12. You buy computer ink monthly, with printable coupons.
  13. Sometimes you secretly print coupons at work … just a few … for now (don’t worry, we won’t tell).
  14. You spend a minimum of 4 hours grocery shopping because you have to shop at multiple stores in order to use all of your wonderful amazing coupons!
  15. You’ll drive out of your way to save $0.50 on pasta sauce, but it’s all worth it because you save 50% or more on your grocery bill!

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.
