Money savers: Local couponers offer shopping, clipping tips

 

 

by Cheyenne Mueller, staff writer

Though coupons can be dated all the way back to 1888 after the invention of Coca-Cola, there’s been a recent boom in popularity thanks to popular reality television show, “Extreme Couponing” on TLC.

In the show, audiences see couponers who devote hours to finding deals and leaving with enough goods to stock a bomb shelter.

For the everyday person, however, spending hours on hours clipping coupons might not be a realistic option. Getting started can seem overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to be.

“I started couponing for the same reason most do – groceries are expensive these days,” said Kanani Gutierrez, a mother of six, from Uvalde.

Shopping for a large family lends itself to being creative with savings.
