Connections’ consumer Christina Hernandez and her cousin Denise taught a class on how to save money using coupons. The highlights of the event were when Tina and Denise spoke of their own savings and how much they had saved by couponing.
They also provided insight, such as talking about those little coupons you get at the end of your purchase at King Soopers. They’re called catalinas and they can help you save tons of money when you go shopping.
The two couponers save lots of money by combining the coupons the store gives you, and the coupons manufacturers and brand names give you.
They showed us their binders full of coupons and talked about how organization is the key to couponing successfully.
And what do we do with expired coupons? Well they recommend sending them to the troops, who can use them for six months after the expiration date. Troopons is one group which gives the coupons to soldiers and their address is:
Support Our Troops
PO Box 70
Daytona Beach, FL 32115
The class will evolve into a support group for people trying to save money on groceries using coupons and the pair has created a Facebook page for those interested.
