I can remember a time that I would not use a coupon, and I did not bother to look for a nutrisystem discount code. Now I make an effort to save wherever I can. I never thought it added up to much until my wife pointed out that we were saving enough money on one trip to the grocery store to buy a nice dinner out if we used coupons. Then she showed me how that taking a minute to find online codes for getting discounts could save us enough money to do other fun things.
Instead of working more to be able to afford an evening of entertainment, we use coupons in stores, and find codes to save money with our online purchases. We keep track of what we save, then use the savings for a fun-filled day or evening date together. This is a tough economy, so why would I want to be giving away money that I do not have to? We work hard, pay our bills and put a little away for retirement. However, we still want to enjoy life a little. It is much easier to simply keep from spending too much on things we buy and use the savings than it is to spend longer hours at work trying to make enough to have a little disposable income.
Think about all of the things you buy in stores and online throughout a typical week. What if you could save a little bit off of the retail cost of each item? What if you could get a deeper discount on something that was already on sale? Would you spend a minute to clip a coupon or hunt for a discount code if the savings in a month could add up to a free day or evening of fun? It works for us, and maybe it will work for you too.
