Brandi, our Target guru and Coupon Coach was recently asked about couponing for singles. I've been asked this question a lot as well, many people think you have to be married with kids in order to coupon but that is not the case. Check out Brandi's response:

Everyone likes to save money…..right?  Why should it matter if there is just one in your house or 10?  It actually doesn’t,  the concept is the exact same.  Why would you feel the need to pay full price for an item just because you are single when you can get it for pennies or better yet, FREE?

I know a lot of single people worry about wasting a lot of food because they think you can only purchase the bigger items with coupons.  Did you know many coupons do not have size limits?  It’s true! 

Unless the coupon has a specific size requirement, you can use it on ANY size.  Most of the time buying the smaller products will land you the best deal anyway (see General Mills cereal).  Let’s take eggs for example, yes, there are coupons for eggs, and if your coupon says you can use it on ANY Farmer’s Brand eggs.  Maybe you don’t use a dozen eggs in a month, but you might use six.  Since your coupon says you can use it on ANY of the eggs, you can use that coupon to get the six pack for pennies or even free!  How cool is that?

Save .55/2 dozen eggs right now on Smartsource.com and save $1/1 dozen on eggs from Great Day All Natural.

Ok, I can feel it, you are starting to get excited about this! Let’s move on, how about shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste and razors?  I am sure you use some of that stuff.  Did you know you can often time get all of that for free as well?  Yep, you can.  Walgreens and CVS are GREAT places to purchase those items. 

Like I said before, the concept is all the same, it is just making it work for you.  I have a lot of single friends that use coupons.  Once you get it down you will be amazed at what you will be able to do and kicking yourself for not giving it a shot before now.

I have been single for a few years now, and have saved lots of money thanks to taking the coupon queen class, using this website, oh and I asked my daughter for "The Power of Coupons" book for Christmas! There are lots of things just as you mentioned we all use whether single or not, and these days most everyone needs to be as frugal as possible. I am grateful for the lessons taught here, and tips given on a daily basis! Thank you!

I want to k now how you can get things next to nothing with coupons?
I have coupons but they are for just a certain amount. I know you had a meeting here in Grove, but I missed it. I would appreciate any help you can give me.
Thanks
