Take $10 in single dollar bills and throw it away. That is what you are doing with coupons when you don’t even consider cutting them. Every household needs to try to save at least $50 or more on their grocery bill. The generalized view of cutting coupons is really tunnel vision; a person that has never done it, doesn’t even try because it is strange to them. The reality is you can’t knock it until you try it.
Hosea 4:6(NKJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
Coupons are nothing new to our world today, but using them are; people stray away because the don’t want to seem like a hoarder or totally broke. Yet, here is an opportunity to use paper money to obtain what you want, when you want and why you need! This is very beneficial for parents with young children at home; you can teach the child how to stay debt free at an early age.
I am an organized ‘couponer’; I desire to have in my home what I didn’t have for years. In order to do this, it takes planning and patience. Paper money (coupons) are dropped off at my home 2-4 times a week; I ask friends who don’t coupon, like I do, to give me their extras. I cut, file, organize, then shop, weekly and I obtain some great deals. The reality of coupons is that the money I save can be purposed to other things. This paper money has varying dollar amounts, for different items, that most of us need. Even if you shop the dollar stores, those stores take coupons. It’s time to use the knowledge given, to excel in financial areas in your home and community.
I want to over emphasize the need to understanding coupons by these few points:
- saving money
- staying debt free
- increasing what you need in your home by cutting coupons
- showing your family how to maximize your grocery dollar
- helping others to do the same
As a business and lifestyle coach, I can never share enough on how to do what is necessary for families.
