It has been just over a month since I started the facebook page and really started this journey. We’ve just reached over 1000 fans on facebook and we have a big giveaway going on :). But the question is – what have we learned from this experience so far?
We’ve learned that couponing takes some time. We’ve also learned that couponing is an ever changing process. Since I’ve stared couponing last month at least two major stores have changed their couponing policies – mostly because of the increase of Extreme Couponing, whether because of TLC’s show or not, they wont specify – but we all know that it is. Couponing policies will be changing on the manufacturer’s stand point as well. Sites will no longer be able to sell coupons, newspapers may even be told to destroy extra inserts so there wont be any more dumpster diving for the real extreme..
I’ve personally learned that you need to make sure you are prepared before you go out – have that list ready, or you will end up spending more money than you want. Also that organization is a very very important part of this process. I’ve rearranged my binder 2-3 times, and I think I’ve finally found a process I’m happy with.
In the past couple months I’ve tried a ton of new products I wouldn’t have normally purchased and tried. That is the point from the companies at least.
What have you learned from couponing? Do you think it has changed the way you shop in general?
