Couponing: The Rub

Now that I had my seemingly endless supply of inserts, it was time to sort, clip and organize the coupons. This is no easy task and while the end result can be very rewarding, this part of the prep is why many people don’t take couponing to such an extreme level. keep reading

Couponing: A Challenge to You!
