I also hope that my techniques for organizing and only getting the items that you actually want will save time and eliminate pressure and stress, which some people new to using coupons experience.
When people ask me if I know how to coupon, I like to say "I wrote the book on it". I hope you enjoy reading Couponing for Busy People and you get a lot out of it.
About the Author
Using coupons was something Elle never considered, until she heard about people saving big time from using coupons. Just for the heck of it, she thought she would do an experiment to see if she could save money using coupons.
Her first couple of shopping trips she failed miserably and ended up buying items she didn't particularily need and not saving that much. She became determined to master the art of couponing.
After a month or so, she had the process down and became intent on not missing any great deals. She soon learned that the "not missing any deals" attitude can cost a lot of time and stress. Eventually, she realized that she had way to much stuff in her stockpile, when she started running out of friends and family to give it to.
She hopes that Couponing For Busy People will help smart shoppers discover techniques to maximize savings, while having a casual attitude towards the whole process. It is really best to organize in a way that allows couponing to enhance your life without it taking over.
