grocery coupons is one of the smartest things to do for a budget. Food is a necessity for everyone, whether they live alone or belong to a family of five. Using grocery coupons can help reduce monthly expenses, allowing consumers to use that extra money for home projects or family vacations. DealPass.com, an online savings portal, entices visitors with easy-to-use grocery coupons that can help even the most harried shoppers start saving as soon as they join.
According to the Promotion Marketing Association (PMA) Coupon Council, 76% of the population uses coupons, and many do so not only for the money-saving factor, but also because they enjoy getting a deal just by using a coupon to buy items like laundry detergent, canned soups or boxes of pasta. The same association stated that consumers save around $3 billion every year just by using coupons.
Grocery coupons provide an excellent way to save money, if used wisely. There’s no need to cut, clip or look through stacks of circulars, since DealPass offers great grocery coupons that are just a quick click away.
DealPass offers tips on how to get additional savings by using grocery coupons:
--Keep only the grocery coupons for the products frequently purchased or the ones necessary for a specific event. Consumers spend more money if they buy things just to use the coupon. Make a list of the necessary groceries, and print out only the coupons that are really needed.
--Make a household inventory to see what is already in the cupboard before heading to the store. The inventory will help plan the meals for the days ahead – shopping the needed items and passing the rest.
--Get creative in the kitchen. Re-use leftovers; buy inexpensive cuts of meat; use spices and dressings to “dress them up”; and try new recipes that don’t require meat but still are healthy and nutritious.
--Have specific goals for the money saved by using grocery coupons. Whether it’s a savings account, a holiday trip with the family, or a new living room set, having such goals will encourage the use of coupons and save more!
--Prepackaged food like frozen dinners and salad bags are sometimes convenient but usually more expensive, so a consumers really won’t be saving much even if they buy them using coupons. Learn to freeze portions of meals as they are prepared. Buy a head of lettuce, and have the kids prepare the salad. And make a point of buying foods that are in season; they’ll always be fresher and cheaper.
And for those who still think that time spent organizing grocery coupons isn’t worth the effort, think again. The savings quickly add up. And no matter how much a person saves, grocery coupons help ease the stress and worry over finances that sometimes burden all heads of households at some point.
DealPass invites shoppers, before heading out to the store, to spend a few moments browsing for grocery coupons.
