Not Clipping Coupons? You Could Be Missing Out On Thousands In Savings Yearly

If you are not clipping coupons, you are seriously missing out. You could be saving a lot more than $11.60 per year – in fact, you could be saving thousands of dollars per year.

Many people do not realize this, but the average couponer is not poor. People who live in households bringing in $100,000 or more in annual income are twice as likely as those in the under $35,000 bracket to use coupons. The average couponer is also well-educated; university graduates are twice as likely to use coupons as those who never graduated from high school. This is because they realize how much those cost savings could amount to.

So if you have your eyes on early retirement, coupons are a great way to get there faster. You could save in excess of $2,000 per year, and those savings could compound tax-free if you invest through your 401k.

    Coupons are a great way to save money. I used to be a bit of an extreme couponer.

  5. I use coupons and I am not ashamed to do so. It does help me save money which I can use for other bigger stuff, like a future room renovation, or maybe a few extra days vacation. It is sad to know that there was that much money that was left unclaimed/unused.

  6. Some of these stats are so surprising! I definitely love my coupons and try to save as much money as possible.

  14. I can’t believe some of these facts on coupon use! Who would have thought those with more money strive to save more money?

  15. I am surprised to see the stats of using coupons. You’d think if someone won the lottery, they wouldn’t worry. Obviously it’s the opposite. People who have a surplus of money work hard to keep it.
