At one point, you will experience burnout from clipping, organizing and using the coupons from the regular Ingles Weekly Ad. You become lazier about it until such time that you completely forget about it because it’s just not fun anymore. Fortunately, you can make it a fun activity again by keeping these tips in mind.
#1 Make It a Competition
You can choose a willing coupon buddy with whom you can have a friendly competition about who has the highest savings for the month. You now have a new motivation to clip and use your Ingles coupons while also enjoying more savings! You can also set the rules, such as the highest percentage saved or the most number of coupons used.
#2 Get Your Family Involved
If you have kids, you can encourage them to join in your coupon clipping activities. You should assign to each kid what his physical and mental capacity will allow, such as cutting the coupons for the younger kids and organizing them in the binders for the older kids.
You have to avoid pressuring them about the tasks assigned to them since you want everybody to enjoy it as a family bonding activity, as well as make them see the ways in which money can be saved even while addressing the family’s needs in full.
#3 Just Take a Break
Your life will not end if and when you pass up on several deals in the supermarket. Besides, you have already racked up substantial savings in your past shopping trips that a few dollars more paying for your purchases will be a drop in the bucket. You just take a break, enjoy your time with your family and friends, and come back ready for more coupon clipping.
Once you have been a coupon user and you have already enjoyed its benefits, it’s not so easy to get it out of your system.
