Coupon 101

Clipping coupons hardly sounds like a lesson on high finance.  Save fifty cents on cat litter, dish soap, a few boxes of cereal.  Who has the time?  In the United States, we redeemed 3.3 billion coupons last year – a remarkable 27 percent leap from 2008, according to a report listed by Inmar, a coupon processing agent.  The individual amounts of money may seem small, but someone who saves $25 a week will save $100 a month, and $1,200 a year.  This lesson will provide information on ways to use coupons, tips on using them (how to get the most bang for your buck), where to get coupons and different methods of organizing them.  THE TWIN CREEKS EXTENSION IS SPONSORING the program ON COUPONS on Tuesday at the Norton County 4-H Building at 6 p.m.  Family and Consumer Science Agent, Karen Shepard, will lead this program.  Please RSVP to the Twin Creeks Norton County Office at (785)877-5755 by Monday.  A minimum of 5 people must sign up in order to hold this program.
