Cost Benefit Analysis On my second week of couponing, I have definitely learned the value of weighing the cost of traveling to different stores to save a quarter versus sticking to the stores I know and love. I attempted trips to the Dollar Store and WalMart (Nolensville Pike locations for you Nashvillians for added perspective) only to leave disgruntled and nauseous! However, I did discover a more organized Dollar Tree in LaVergne that I will frequent due to its close proximity to my office.
Organizational Skills NecessaryI thought I was an organized person until I embarked on this couponing venture. Matching the sale on the app with the correct store and coupon while abiding by the rules of the fine print is not as easy as it seems! Now I know why it is so time consuming, but ever so necessary. Also, I have learned I might have to segregate my shopping trips into different days, because different sales are active at different times. I feel like I need to work couponing into my weekly schedule!
Savings Week 2I was bummed about my week 2 savings, but will see how week 3 goes.
App Cash Back Savings: ($0.50)
Total Week 2 Savings: $6.40!
