The first rule of advice I have learned is retrain your brain. You no longer buy what you like to buy it’s whats on sale and which item has a coupon on it. Like the picture above . The Scope mouthwash is on sale for $3.00 and the scope coupon is $1.00 off any 750ML or greater. This is how u start, when you go to the grocery store get the sale paper then when you get the sunday paper match them up with the coupons. Thats how u get the most savings by finding the items that are already on sale before your coupon. The deodorant below is on sale for $1.00 and I had a dollar off coupon that made the product free.
