Is Couponing worth it?
There are several of my friends who ask me if couponing is worth it.
I spent 1.5 hours clipping/organizing for my trip to Target the other day. Then another 1.5 hours in the store. I would normally spend an hour (pre couponing) at the store so only an extra half hour.
I didn’t buy anything I wouldn’t normally use. Included in the dollar spot items were a couple of gift bags, a greeting card, and a BUNCH of scotch brite type of scrubbers and some steel wool which I use a lot at my house since we don’t use non-stick cookware.
Here is the breakdown of my trip:
You tell me...
Is 33.23 worth 2 hours of your time? I've seen people work a lot longer for a lot less. I'm not going to scoff at a part time job that makes $16.61/hour!
