You can save using coupons or coupon codes FOR THE THINGS YOU NEED. If you use coupons or coupon codes for things you don’t need, you are PARTICIPATING IN MARKETING. So, make your “shopping list” first. Then – always – go look for coupons or especially coupon codes for the things you are going to purchase ANYWAY.
Finally, take the amount of money you SAVE by using the coupons or coupon codes and add it up. Now, take that amount and remove it from your checking account AS IF YOU SPENT IT on the items you purchased. Put that amount in an actual money market savings account. This is a strong way to build in more savings that you think quickly.
