The Post-it Note was invented as a solution without a problem: Dr. Spencer Silver developed a unique, repositionable adhesive, but the 3M scientist didn’t know what to do with his discovery. Then, six years later, a colleague of Dr. Silver, Art Fry, remembered the light adhesive when he was daydreaming about a bookmark that would stay put in his church hymnal. The rest is history.

Today, Post-it Brand boasts more than 4,000 unique products, and has become one of the most well-known and beloved brands in the world.

Tip: Double Coupon Days {expired}

Pharmasave SK and MB Double Coupon Days

Check your Pharmasave flyer for this promo on the front page!

Are you a coupon shopper living in Saskatchewan or Manitoba? If yes, then this tip is just for you! Pharmasave is having double coupon days once again–this Monday & Tuesday (June 27 & 28, 2011) which can mean some great savings just by using one coupon per item!

Double coupon days are a special event in which the store takes the coupon face value and gives you twice the value off. Common in the U.S. (Kroger, KMart, Price Chopper etc.) we don’t see this type of coupon promotion in Canada very often. Some say that Sobey’s in Manitoba has double coupon days, as well as some local Co-op stores, but nothing chain-wide across Canada. Anyways, maybe if we start asking our local store managers for more double coupon days, emphasizing how that would increase their sales, maybe they would start offering double coupon days just like Pharmasave!

Here’s my list of items to buy at Pharmasave on double coupon days:

Format: Item, sale price – (reg. coupon value and source) x 2 double value = total $ cost

Shopping with Coupons: Myth #3

Myth #3: Coupons are complicated and confusing

It is easy for new coupon users to get overwhelmed with the different types of coupons and the various store coupon policies, or find themselves confused with all the online terms on coupon forums. However, if you are serious about saving money, you must approach couponing as a learned skill that has to be taught and practiced in order to be successful.

Shopping with coupons

Myth #3

Extreme Couponing is like any other skill you learn in life—it takes study and some practice, but the result of your hard work will be rewarded when you save lots of money using coupons. Don’t expect to learn everything in one or two days, or think you are going to go out shopping tomorrow after reading this and save 92% on your grocery bill. Instead, set realistic goals like learning one new technique each week, and practice each one before you try the next. Retraining yourself and the way you shop cannot happen overnight, but the benefits can be tremendous if you take the necessary steps to learn the art of shopping with coupons one step at a time.

Shopping with Coupons: Myth #2

Myth #2: Using coupons makes you look cheap or poor

Does shopping with coupons make you Ebenezer Scrooge?

The idea that coupons make you look like tight-wad Ebenezer Scrooge is a stereotype many people have adapted. To shop with coupons and start saving money, you will need to overcome this stereotype and realize that couponing will result in more money in your pocket, and ultimately you will be a smarter shopper, not a cheap one. Furthermore, once you stand at the till with the line up behind you gawking with amazement at your savings, you will overcome any feeling of frugality, and proudly hold up your arms-length receipt with pride! Coupon shopping is empowering! Once you learn how to save money with coupons, you will be a smarter, more educated, and wiser consumer–and probably wealthier too. So take those preconceived ideas of couponing out of your mind and say “Bah humbug!” to paying high retail prices ever again!

Shopping with Coupons: Myth #1

Myth #1: Coupons only result in small savings

This is the number one reason why most Canadians don’t use coupons—they believe that a coupon for $1 off isn’t worth their time or effort because they are only saving one dollar. However, if you saw a loonie lying on the ground in the parking lot when you came out of the store, would you keep on walking and not bend over and pick it up? Of course not!

Loonie

Would you leave a loonie on the ground?

So why would you ignore the savings a coupon can offer but pick up the coin? Essentially they are the same thing—you must change your perspective and view coupons the same as cash in your pocket. Just imagine if you picked up a loonie every time you came out of a store! You would soon have enough change to buy a donut and coffee at Tim Horton’s! Therefore, if you could save a $1 at every store you shop at this week, you would also have enough extra money to buy a donut and coffee—they both have the same output. Changing your perspective is the first step to unleashing the power of coupons.
