The Busy Couponer: You’re carefully trying to balance the value of your dollars with the value of your minutes, and you may not have time to get every single deal. You’re looking for the greatest maximum return on your effort and money, and you’re selective about which deals you’ll pursue and which stores you’ll shop at, based on how much time you’re willing to invest. Maybe you’re a working parent with three little kids, or a SAHP who’s chauffeuring your prodigies to a variety of events, practices, and after-school activities. Either way, your time is worth at least as much as your money, and you need to get the maximum bang out of both.
