No matter what your couponing style, there’s a place for you on PYP!
One of PYP’s newest and most rapidly growing features is the Financial Support Group forum, affectionately called the FSG. In the FSG, members share their money struggles, goals, ambitions, and successes. Here’s how to find the FSG forum:
1. From the front (or any) page in PYP, click on the “forums” link. You can see it below circled in red.
I discovered a method that makes my coupon file even more user-friendly. The coupon file is all about fast, easy filing and fast, easy retrieval, but I hadn’t realized that there was a level on which I resisted getting coupons because I had to pull the folders out in order to read the dark letters that were scrawled on the dark files down in the middle of the folder. Often, my eyes had to work through several groups of scribbled-through numbers in order to identify the date.
Do your friends ever question the amount of time and effort you put into saving money, couponing, bargain hunting, and frugal living? While it is important to be moderate, it helps to remember that the money you save is worth far more than the money you earn. Check it out; you may be surprised at how much per hour you’re really making.
New PYP members often want to jump right into the nitty-gritty of how to use the forums to find the best deals online. This video shows you how to do just that. If you want to view it in higher quality, you can download it here.
Always use a coupon on the item its intended for. You’ll know what it’s intended for by reading it. Just because a coupon “works” on an item it wasn’t intended for, doesn’t make it valid or ethical to use on that item. If you get a reputation as a dishonest couponer, it will stick with you forever. Also, FYI…Coupon fraud is a felony, not a misdemeanor.
Always honor the guidelines and policies set by your grocery store. Trying to get around set guidelines or limits will hurt you in the long run.
