If you are in a situation where you need to budget your money because if you don't you may not have much money buy anything at the end of the month. I have a solution that might just make budgeting a little easier to stick too.
For this week's post about how I saved and splurged, this time at the grocery store, I am writing about shopping with coupons.
This is the first time I've ever shopped with coupons with purpose. In the past, I just cut out coupons once and awhile, saved a little money and thought nothing of it. Now, I need to think about how I spend my money. There are lots of things going on right now that are going to throw me off my game if I don't keep my eye on the prize, i.e. being self-employed.
So without further ado, let me tell you my solution for saving money on one of my favorite snacks.
So I found a couple of coupons for two brands that I enjoy buying for my snacks. They each had a buy x number of boxes, get one for y dollars off.
I had other coupons for other things, but I felt that this was the best purchase at the time. These were manufacturers coupons so they could be used anywhere that had these products.
What I found was that the coupons said that I could buy whatever size I wanted and still save money on my purchase.
I realized that if I buy in bulk, even though I'm paying more for the amount of products, I'm saving money because I am buying the biggest sizes and it's something that I eat all the time. I felt like the purchase was right for me.
Though I saved money, I still wanted something extra, something else that felt indulgent.
