I rarely see a T.V. show on that catches my attention. I saw a show yesterday about clipping coupons, and don't remember the name of the show. Anyway, it had these people that were super duper coupon clippers. They would go to the store and the price would ring up to $600.00-$800.00, and then they would submit their coupons to the cashier, and their balance due would go down to something ridiculously low like $8.00. I watched a few of the stories on there, and it made me think how much I could save. The problem is I'm too lazy to go through the coupons. And, these people spent hours and hours clipping coupons and figuring out how to get the products for almost nothing.
One of my opinions of coupons has been that they tend to be for the brand name products that usually cost a lot more (if not marked up when they print a coupon for it), and that by the time I use the coupon I could have just bought the store brand. The intriguing thing to me was these people were getting the brand name products for practically nothing. They had stockpiles of soap, dish detergent, Kraft BBQ sauce, noodles, deodorants, etc in their houses.
I thought it would be cool if someone could use the "automation" technique to find the coupons for the products I want to buy. I thought about all the brand name products I buy, and that would be a good search term. For instance, these are the brand names I usually buy: Tide detergent, Palmolive, Colgate toothpaste, Kraft sauces and salad dressings, Downy softener, etc.
If there were a way to get coupons for these items, and do it easily, I think a lot of people would go for it. Many of the coupon websites want you to register, then the coupons I'm looking for are few and far between. It was a waste of time.
Anybody got a easy system?
