It takes time and dedication to coupon well. I should know! I have worked my way through weeks where I could not get any coupons from the Sunday paper due to a lack of funds. This coming Sunday being one of them. It can be daunting, feeling like you are missing out. Who knows if that one coupon you really need will be in there. One could always look at the sneak peeks for the inserts but do you really want to know when you have no money until the day after you need it.
Just stick with it, things always get better. Life, like the seasons and sales, comes in cycles.
