There will be lots of extra coupons for you this month. Many of them will be for better savings than typical. In addition to using coupons, there are other ways to save this month.

Tips for Saving During National Coupon Month

* Use a coupon organizer or binder. You can’t save money with the coupons that you misplaced!

* Use the store coupons. You can be certain that the store will accept their own coupons (unless they are expired).

* Clean out your freezer and do an inventory. Companies that make frozen foods tend to produce extra coupons during National Coupon Month. Take the time to figure out what frozen foods you already have. This will help you to pick up what you need (and save big). It also prevents you from spending money on things you don’t actually need more of just yet.

* Read the store’s coupon policy. Will they allow you to stack coupons? Do they take competitor’s coupons? Keeping up with the store’s current coupon policy will help you to follow their rules and save money.

* Start using the app that goes along with a store’s loyalty program. You may find special offers and digital coupons that are only offered through the app.

* While you are at it, browse through the digital coupons that are on your favorite grocery store’s website and load the good ones (digitally) onto your loyalty card. Those coupons will be automatically used when you check out.

* Read the store’s weekly ad. See if you have coupons for the products that are on sale. Those of you who excel at mathematical problems can probably figure our way into some awesome deals this September! Compare the savings at one store with the savings at a different one.

* Start your stock pile. You can do it for less money this month than if you wait until October to get started. Use plenty of coupons on products that can be stored for a long time. Before you shop, it is a good idea to decide where you will put the stock pile. How much space do you have?

* Check the ingredients on the store brands. Some will be exactly the same as a similar product with a popular, well recognized, brand name. Which is cheaper? Do you have a coupon for either of them?

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.
