As much as I'd like to say I'm an avid couponer saving tons of money every month with my extremly organized coupon binder and extreme couponing skills, I just haven't been able to get motivated to clip coupons and actually use them.
I can get myself to get very excited about the idea of saving money with coupons, but when it comes to the reality of it- nah, it ain't happenin'.
And why is that?! I think it comes down to the fact that I don't think I have enough time to dedicate to all that I think is involved with couponing. You know, the: learning, clipping, sorting, strategizing, and planning that comes along with the idea of starting to REALLY make couponing worthwhile. And, I guess (probably more than anything) with everything else going on, I don't know that I want to make it a priority in my life.
Couponing is one of those "should" things. Like, "I should sweep more", "I should walk to work more", "I shouldn't eat this third spoonful of Nutella".
I want to want to coupon because there's money there to be saved but, when it really comes down to it I don't really want to do it. Ah. You know what I mean?
So the question remains, is clipping coupons worth it, or not? And what about mobile coupons? Have you given those a try?
I really want to hear what you think about this!
Is couponing worth your time or is it a time-suck? Would you rather focus on techniques that yield higher pay-outs for less time invested?
