Find your scissors and take a seat. Cutting coupons could help you reduce your weekly grocery bill.
Things are easier said than done, or so the old adage goes, and we couldn't agree more. That's why we do The GOOD 30-Day Challenge (#30DaysofGOOD), a monthly attempt to live better. Our challenge for January? Financial fitness.
Cut coupons and search for deals.
There's nothing wrong with being vigilant and frugal. There are deals out there to be had, and if you can use them in your favor, it can pay off.
This all may sound counterintuitively consumeristic. BEWARE: DO NOT USE THIS AS AN EXCUSE TO BUY THINGS YOU WEREN'T GOING TO BUY IN THE FIRST PLACE! This is for when your toaster breaks and you need to replace it, when your favorite piece of art shatters and you need to get it reframed, or simply to cut down your weekly grocery bill. If you're not careful, the temptation can overwhelm, and you'll start moving in the wrong direction.
Come back tomorrow for the next task in our financial fitness challenge.
