Set a goal for yourself in regards to couponing that is 1 step higher than what you are doing right now. That means, if you are new to couponing, set a goal of getting 1 freebie or super cheap item a week. Once you feel comfortable with that, add a few more free or super cheap items to the list. Start with deals that are easy. Once you have mastered the easy deals, then add some more complicated deals, maybe that involve a rebate, catalina or drugstore rewards coupon. Add a few more deals to your shopping list each month, as you feel comfortable, and by the end of next year you will be paying much less for your groceries than you did this year. If you have already mastered your grocery store, move onto a drugstore. If you have mastered 1 drugstore, then move onto another.
Start small, and add deals and stores as you feel comfortable!!!
