The first booklet in the series, "Manage Your Coupons, Max Your Savings."
There are tons of coupons out there going to waste and being shipped off to landfills. Learn how to get them, and make them really count in creating your economy!
Hopefully, by now you have been reading about how to use coupons, or even better, maybe you are already actually using them when you make your purchases. If you haven't, get started. You have money to save! Using coupons is one of the best ways to save money and change your personal economy.
To make coupon savings really add up, one of the best ways to shop with them is to have multiple copies available so that you can stock up on items when you can get the item at a rockbottom price. To do this you need multiple coupons.
Having multiple coupons also allows you to take advantage of store sales that require the purchase of several of a particular item to achieve an additional savings, but creating a stockpile of coupons can be expensive, especially if you are purchasing multiple copies of news papers to get them. The cost is not only monetary, but also a waste of natural resources. That is where this booklet comes in.
There are many FREE or nearly free ways to get the coupons that you need to make a real change in your household economy. This booklet will explain some of them. As an added bonus, some of these methods also allow you to also do other great things such as donate to your local food bank and animal shelters, and even support military personnel. With this booklet you can get started creating your own personal stockpile right away!
Shelley Zelechowski has spent the greater part of her life dedicated to creating unique systems that stretch the personal and family budget by using resources that are often free or just lying around the house and available to most everyone. Her books range from personal family budgeting and coupon use to the more elaborate creation of the guidebook for the Community Swapz Program which she created as her contribution to stimulating the national economy.
The Community Swapz program is run out of the www.communityswapz.com website. It is a program to create swapping networks across the nation and world to allow people to trade the valuable resources that they already have such as gently used items, coupons, skill and services, and even volunteer time to get the things and services that they need instead of allowing them to go to waste.
To create these networks, small fully supported swapping businesses are created in each community. Amazingly, these small businesses can be started very simply, and for practically no money at all.
This program utilizes swapping tickets that can be used throughout any of the networks, allowing swapping of most anything to be done. It is their hope that this program and the networks that it creates can help improve economies around the world by making it possible for people to get the things that they want and need with just what they have on hand.
