This is a guest post from Quida Davis of Simple Savings for ATL Moms who offers tips on shopping, saving and couponing. Check back each week for more of her tips!
Did you know that there are couponers who shop together? Well in our world, we call them coupon buddies. Not only do we shop together while using coupons, we share coupons with each other. Sometimes there are Coupon Buddies who live in different states and they send each other coupons all the time. Take a look at some ways you can find a Coupon Buddy right in your own area:
Find a Facebook Group
There are many Couponing Groups on Face book. We chat about sales, coupons to use to get a great deal and some of our favorite stores to shop. This is a great way to find a Coupon Buddy especially if they live in your state or city. How to find a FB group: Just place the word “coupon” in the search box on Facebook and see what you locate under groups.
Partner with a Friend/Neighbor/Church Members
Check with your immediate family members/neighbors/church members to see if anyone is using coupons. Ask them if they would like to partner up sometime in shopping or even discussing great deals for which you can use coupons. Designate someone to watch the kids or take the kids with you if you can keep them entertained. You might be surprised at how much fun you can have!
Start your Own Coupon Buddy Network
Create a simple flyer or email to family and friends or church members and ask if they are interested in meeting at a certain time of the month to share coupons. Just find a safe and fun location to meet and bring your coupons. This is an excellent way to not only see one another but discuss some of those HOT sales and deals with coupons. It is definitely impossible to go to every single store or drug store each and every week. There is no way to get every single weekly sale!
Having a Coupon Buddy can be both exciting and a lot of fun especially if you team up with the right person. So get to networking and jot down ideas. Be sure to contact me if you form one here in Atlanta, I may just pop up…with my coupons of course!
