  • 1. How To Get Everyone In Your FamilyCouponing Having the whole family involved in couponing is very important. Your family members may not be as enthusiastic about couponing as you in the beginning, but there are ways you can change it. Couponing is all about commitment and consistency and having your family involved makes it a lot easier. Pleasing all your family members and saving money is quite a feast. They might grumble at first because they are missing out on their favorite snacks or meals, but they will come around. Shopping with coupons is not easy and it changes the way you shop, which is way not everyone does it. Here are a few ideas onhow to get your family excited and involved with couponing. 1. Start A ConversationYou need to sit down and have a conversation with your spouse and children about money, and the wayyou are going to try and save money by using coupons. Children (and husbands) need to understandthat in an effort to save money, they are not going to be getting everything that they are used to. If thefamily as a unit is aware of the financial implications they will be more willing to make sacrifices whereever needed. 2. Set Down A BudgetSetting a budget for your monthly grocery budget is a good step. Once the budget has been set, you canthen look at how you might be able to slip in a few of the items that your family has sacrificed. A goodidea is to set aside a little money each week for special items. 3. Make Couponing FunThe more fun you make couponing, the more your family will participate. Making a reward is a greatway to get the family involved. Agree to use the money you save every month by couponing on a familyvacation, or something you have always wanted as a family but could never afford. www.extremecouponingtips.org
  • 2. If you have young children, make clipping and sorting coupons a fun activity that you can do together.Older children can help you search for coupons and special deals online; they can help with the shoppinglists and even help you start up your stockpile. 4. Keep Everyone InformedIf you are working towards a special reward with the money you are saving, make an effort to keep yourfamily updated on the progress. Making a chart is one way of doing this. Staying enthusiastic about theproject and talking about it often will keep it real in their minds. 5. Agree To Be Open About Trying New ThingsUsing coupons is going to expose you to a lot of new products as those are the ones that most often getpromoted by both the stores and the manufacturer. Giving up your favorite brand is hard, but agree totry another brand at least once. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to buy it again. 6. Put Priorities In PlaceDecide as a family on what products you are willing to save on (using coupons and sales) and whatproducts you simply cannot live without. Save money on the products that you are not so fussy about,like toothpaste and laundry detergent.If you care about saving money, and your family is on board, there is no limit to how much you can saveon your monthly grocery bill. www.extremecouponingtips.org
