Use Free Food Coupons To Help Your Budget

Senior Citizen Living just naturally includes looking for bargains. Most of us are retired or working part time. We enjoy moving at a slower pace, but we do need to save our pennies. If you are not in the habit of shopping for bargains, the senior years are a great time to learn!

When you begin couponing, you need to learn just a few of the most common abbreviations used on coupon sites.
BOGO – Buy one, get one free
CPN – Coupon
DND – Do not double. (Coupon is marked for grocer – no doubling)
FAR – Free After Rebate
P&G – Proctor and Gamble
SS – SmartSource – insert in many Sunday newspapers

Here is a great example of bargains you can find. This one is from Southern Savers and refers to Walgreen bargains this week.
**Deal Idea**
Buy: (2) Revlon Lipstick $5 ea
Use: (2) -$2 off Revlon SS 2/21 (SS=Find the coupon in Sunday’s SmartSource)
Total Due: $6
Get Back: $5 RR, makes it 50¢ ea (RR = Walgreen’s Register Rewards)

When is the last time you paid 50¢ for a tube of lipstick?

Are you couponing yet?

Note: Southern Savers also has a list of freebies and coupons you can find on Facebook.

  1. To Susan’s comment, I recently ordered a t-shirt from Cheerios featuring the Vancouver olympic theme. When I ordered it was late in the campaign and all they had left were children’s sizes which won’t fit anyone around my house but I ordered one anyway (it was free) and sold it yesterday for $15.
