Beginner’s Guide To Couponing – Book Review
Highly recommended for readers who have developed a newfound interest in the attractive money-saving opportunities of couponing (but don’t know where to start) , Beginner’s Guide to Couponing: Learn How to Save Money Using Coupons in Seven Easy Steps! is an e-book sold on Amazon.com. Not only does the publication provide basic information for beginners in an easy-to-read format, but it also breaks down the process of couponing in a manner that makes it less complicated for everyone to learn how to save money on groceries.
The e-book is written by Ann Eckhart, a seasoned blogger, vlogger, Ebayer and extreme couponer, who has penned several e-books available on Amazon.com on the topic of making and saving money.
Her tips and examples give a broad explanation about the basic nature of couponing – all while preparing shoppers to develop realistic expectations. Even from the start of her book, Eckhart stresses that the typical couponer normally does not achieve the same “extreme couponing” results as the shoppers highlighted on shows, such as TLC’s Extreme Couponing. However, Eckhart points out the strategies and helpful habits that can bring the average shopper closer to meeting these same money-saving achievements.
The bulk of Eckhart’s book focuses on providing easy steps that show how to make couponing work for an individual or family with helpful examples that not only save money, but also time.
Readers start off by learning the different ways on how to collect coupons, where Eckhart points out where to find coupons with the help of a list of printable coupon resources. Coupon organization is also an important part of Eckhart’s process, and she’ll share the ins and outs of two popular methods: the Binder Method and the Accordion File Method. However, one of the best steps in the book probably stresses the importance of learning how to use coupon at the right time as a way to maximize total savings – something that all couponing newbies should learn.
While other publications focus on extreme forms of couponing, Eckhart helps shoppers create a strong foundation that leads to using coupons as little or as much as a consumer wishes, yet still enables a shopper to achieve a satisfying level of enjoyment while exploring various ways to save money on groceries. Bottom line, Beginner’s Guide to Couponing makes an extremely useful resource for beginner couponers.
Other highlights of the e-book include store selection tips, making profitable shopping decisions, creating a stockpile for long-term household savings, and the best places to find some of the most attractive coupons. Beginner’s Guide to Couponing also shares convenient resources to make the understanding and execution of helpful couponing methods much easier to achieve, such as pointing out helpful websites for conducting efficient couponing research, and showing how and where to score the best deals at specific stores.
