You can find vouchers online, usually with a simple search engine lookup type ‘vouchers’ or you can search specific products buy typing the name of the product and voucher e.g. Kellogg’s Vouchers.

Vouchers are sometimes given on the street with free newspapers, magazines and stores.

      Plan your shopping definitey, but not to be confused with having strict recipes and lists to be done, which can get very expensive. It is important too being flexible so you can adapt to what is on offer...
