As with anything, starting is the hardest part. But if you just start reading through my guide then I will walk you through all the steps you need to be a successful couponer. We'll just take one easy step at a time.
Introduction to Couponing
Before we get started, what exactly do we mean when we think about learning how to coupon?
For the purpose of my easy start-up guide, let's focus on learning couponing in the traditional sense. That is, through finding and using Canadian coupons that are in the paper-form, and generally used for saving money on groceries and household items.
This includes finding printable coupons, newspaper inserts, tear-pad coupons, in-store coupons, mailed-out coupons, facebook coupons, hidden coupons and even some "hard to find" popular coupons.
Also, I suggest that you take some time to think about what you might like to learn from reading my guide. Are you just looking for a few specific coupons for grocery and household items that you regularly buy? How much money would you like to save on your grocery bills? 10%? 30%?
Depending on how involved you would like to become in couponing will determine the extent of your savings.
For example, if you wish to just find a few specific printable coupons, perhaps for cereal or laundry detergent, then that is perfectly fine! I'll show you how easy it is to find coupons for the brands you love so that you can save money on these specific items. If you're interested, then I'll help you to become a more experienced couponer, where you'll learn how to make some pretty significant savings.
When I first started learning how to coupon, I didn't understand the full potential of the savings I could make. I started by looking for one or two specific coupons to save a few dollars here and there. But then I quickly realized that coupons for Canada were everywhere! I started to become aware of more and more available coupons, through the Internet and in various other places, such as newspapers, in stores, and by doing surveys.
I also began collecting coupons that wouldn't be useful to me. Why? Because I realized that the coupons I wouldn't use (baby products and dog food, for example) would be extremely useful to someone else. And so part of learning how to coupon is recognizing the potential to trade coupons through coupon swapping and coupon trains.
Swapping coupons is a great deal of fun, and an excellent way to meet new people that have similar interests in saving money. It's also a great way to share experiences and learn new couponing tips and tricks. These techniques are also where some of the most exciting money-saving opportunities lie!
But first, let's start with the basics. My advice is to first choose your strategy for learning how to coupon. Do you wish to find only occasional, specific coupons for the products that you and your household uses? Or are you ready to build a full binder of all available Canadian coupons, ones that you can organize and trade?
Whatever your chosen strategy, couponing should always be fun and rewarding. It can be quite addictive, especially when you add up those savings! But my advice is to take it one step at a time and keep it light-hearted. Remember that learning how to coupon is all about finding the information you need when you are ready to learn.
