The Orange Leader
Stories abound on the woman who bought hundreds of dollars in groceries for just a few dollars using coupons.
Coupons, just small pieces of paper, have changed the way shoppers think, especially in light of ‘reality shows’ where people are shown hundreds of dollars worth of items for a few dollars.
Couponing is almost a sporting event with the winner declared by who most the most for the least amount.
It hosts a language all it’s on like BOGO, MRF, CRT... and one thought texting short hand was hard to understand!
Couponing for the Rest of Us: The NoT-So-Extreme Guide to Saving More, by Kasey Knight Trenum, guides one through the special lingo while explaining just how a coupon works to save one money (and benefit the store and manufacturer at the same time).
Trenum states in her book that is not about how much one saves or acquiring very possible bargain every week, it is about saving on purchases one already makes.
The book is filled with tips to make shopping easier and less expensive, especially if used as a reference with the author’s website www.time2saveworkshops.com.
Couponing for the Rest of Us: The NoT-So-Extreme Guide to Saving More, 187 pages, published by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group in 2013, shows how to use coupons to help save money without it becoming a part-time job.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to save money and discover couponing is feasible in the real world.
