Become a Koopon Kween!

  1. 1. How To Be A Koopon Kween!<br />Introduction to Extreme Couponing<br />Brought to you by:<br />
  2. 2. It is time to ask yourself…<br />Have you ever gone to the store to get something you needed or absolutely wanted only to find that it wasn’t on sale that week?<br />Do you wish that you could buy brand name products for a fraction of the store brand price?<br />Have you ever had to make a quick trip to the store because you ran out of something?<br />Do you usually pay full price for items that your family uses on a daily basis?<br />Do you wish there was a way that you would never have to pay full price for anything again?<br />
  3. 3. If you Answered YES to any of those questions then Extreme Couponing is for you! With this tutorial, YOU TOO can become a……..<br />Are you ready to get started? LET’S GO!<br />
  4. 4. First Step<br />Stop planning those huge monthly shopping trips! Utilize those weekly ads and compare prices!<br />
  5. 5. Utilize Weekly Ads<br />When you receive ads in the mail or in the newspaper each week make sure you go through and highlight or star items that you want, need, or could use.<br />These items listed are all SALE items, so it is best to plan your meals around these.<br />
  6. 6. Utilize Weekly Ads<br />For example: Let’s say hotdogs, buns, and chips are all on sale one week. It would be a good idea to make that a cheap meal.<br />So while you highlight items, it is a good idea to compile a list of meals from those items at the same time.<br />
  7. 7. Compare Prices<br />After all of your ads are marked with your needed/wanted items it is time to compare all of the prices.<br />Make an alphabetized list of all the items: including their prices and what stores they are from, that you marked from the ads. (An easy way to do this is to type everything in Microsoft Word and use the alphabetize feature on the home tab.)<br />
  8. 8. Compare Prices<br />Now that your price comparison list is alphabetized, it allows you to compare prices of the same items right next to each other.<br />Go through your list and delete all of the most expensive items or the items that you do not really need/want.<br />
  9. 9. Second Step<br />Now you have your shopping list and are ready for the coupons!<br />
  10. 10. How to Acquire Coupons<br />Coupons are found in the weekly newspaper (for most places coupons come in the Wednesday and Sunday newspapers), can be printed online, or can come directly from the manufacturer.<br />
  11. 11. How to Acquire Coupons<br />You can subscribe to the newspaper if you don’t already in order to receive coupons at your door. Some newspaper carriers allow you to subscribe to more than one set of papers a week. This is a good way to get even more coupons.<br />Another way is to have friends and family give you their newspaper inserts that they are not using.<br />You can also print them online from many different sites. (The best sites for coupons are listed on the Koopon Kween homepage)<br />Another way that TONS of coupons can be found is by dumpster diving! That’s right! Go to your local recycling drop-off and you will find tons of thrown away coupons!<br />
  12. 12. Third Step<br />Now that you have acquired a good stack of coupons, it’s time to clip away!<br />
  13. 13. Clipping and Storing Coupons<br />Now you can either clip all of your coupons right away and put them into a binder, OR you can file away your inserts and clip them when they are needed.<br />Having a coupon binder is good for when you are out shopping and happen to find a deal that you can save a lot on, but you do not necessarily need one.<br />
  14. 14. Clipping and Storing Coupons<br />If you do decide to have a coupon binder you can find out how to construct an effective one here.<br />If you decide to file your inserts however, it will be a good idea to get some storage drawers like these, or something similar.<br />
  15. 15. Clipping and Storing Coupons<br />Label each drawer by the date of the paper the insert came from.<br />Inside the drawers it would be a good idea to have file separators labeling the inserts by type. (health & beauty, food, etc.)<br />Then keeping an alphabetical list of brand of coupon (see slide 7) so that it is easy to find would be a really good idea. This way when an item is on sale you can just view your list to see if you have a coupon for that item, find it, and clip it. <br />
  16. 16. Fourth Step<br />Now that you have sorted your coupons, its time to apply them to your list!<br />
  17. 17. Applying Coupons<br />Now you will take you price comparison list (from slide 7) and your coupon list (if you filed in drawers) or your binder and match up the sale prices with coupons to make the prices even lower. (if there is an item you do not have a coupon for this is where printing online coupons comes in handy. Look up the brand you need to find a printable coupon here.)<br />Then mark this down on your price comparison list next to the items because this will become your shopping list.<br />
  18. 18. QUCIK COUPON TIP<br />Check out the coupon policies from the stores you plan to shop at. Some stores allow you to use a store coupon AND a manufacturer coupon on one item. This will allow you to get the lowest price possible on that item. <br />Some stores do not allow this which is why it is a good idea to view all of the policies.<br />A list of popular stores coupon policies is listed on the last slide.<br />Wal-Mart's coupon policy can be found here.<br />
  19. 19. Fifth Step<br />Now you have your shopping list and coupons ready, it’s time to shop and save!<br />
  20. 20. STOCKPILING<br />Now that you will be shopping with coupons and the weekly ads, there is no need for anymore huge monthly trips! The more coupons you acquire, the more items you can stockpile! Extreme Couponers build up their stock piles fairly quickly and save tons and tons of money! You will never run out of essentials again! It’s like going shopping in your basement/garage!<br />Wal-Mart's coupon policy can be found here.<br />
  21. 21. Time to Shop!<br />Take your list and your coupons and head to the stores where you found the sales! (HINT: print out the coupon policies and bring them with you just in case you have a checker that doesn’t know the policy.)<br />Purchase the items on your list as well as any sale items you may find in the store matched with coupons from your binder (if that is the storage method you chose).<br />When checking out make sure to watch the scanner to make sure that each price and coupon are scanned correctly. Don’t be afraid to say something if any item is scanned incorrectly!<br />
