How to use coupons: A four-step process
Going into the crazy season at work--a brain-destroying special issue we do every year. Expect fewer posts and lots of reruns--like this one, from October 2006.
1. Check the local newspaper for coupons from manufacturers and supermarkets. You can save lots of money on your food budget this way!
2. Clip coupons and put them somewhere you're not going to miss--on the fridge, held up by magnets, is a good place. You're not going to forget them in an obvious place like that!
3. Go to supermarket. While there, realize you've left coupons hanging on the refrigerator. Swear quietly under breath.
3. Wait until expiration dates on coupons pass.
4. Throw away coupons.
