My family has always enjoyed saving money. One of those ways is using coupons. Ever since I was 5 years old I have clipped coupons and learned to look out for special deals at supermarkets and to apply to the coupon to already existing deals to make the product even cheaper. As a family we never buy items that we want unless they are on sale. We only buy the necessities, such as toilet paper, dinner foods, and toiletries, at regular prices. We always try to use coupons even on the necessities. As a family we view coupons as a way to do more enjoyable things. If we coupon we can go to the movies or out to eat more often as a family. Coupons have always effected my family, and using them has taught me how to budget and use my money wisely.
