How to Go Extreme Couponing

Rochester flea market

In a heavenly world, we’d get paid to shop for our favorite things, instead of us having to pay for them. Yet, extreme couponers claim to do just that–earn money shopping. If that sounds like a good thing to you, then with just a little time, organization, and the right Rochester coupons, you too can start hacking away at costs, and maybe even earn money back.

1. Finding Them.

Obviously to start couponing you’re going to need to find local coupon deals. Looking in the Democrat and Chronicle, City, and other local publications is a great way to find Rochester coupons. There are also online coupon deals for places in Rochester all over the web. Sign up for store emails, which may bloat your inbox, but will ultimately yield some excellent deals. Another great source for Rochester coupons is social media. Many businesses will tweet bargains on Twitter, or share info about sales on Facebook.

2. Wait For a Sale.

Timing is everything. You don’t want to use all of your Rochester coupons the moment you get them, or when it’s convenient for you. Instead, you have to wait for a really good sale to come along so that you can capitalize on an already good deal with your fat stack of coupons. Look for sales when you’re out around town, or for flyers through the Internet.

3. Get More Than One.

If a store is having a BOGO (Buy-One-Get-One) type deal for an item that you have Rochester coupons for, then go for it! It's a good idea to avoid buying perishable items this way, though, because they'll go bad before you can go through all of them.

Extreme couponing is an art that takes time. It's best to do it during off-peak hours, so as not to make others behind you in line impatient. Also, it's a good idea to leave the kids at home for similar reasons. You should also be open to new brands that you haven't tried before so you can have more options, and save more money.
