If you are just getting started or have been thinking about using coupons, you will need to figure out how many coupons you need. You don’t want to see a hot deal at the store on a item that you need to stock up on, only to find you only have 1 or 2 coupons and you needed 3 or 4. Honestly, the best way to determine how many inserts you need is to get one insert per person living in your home. If you have smaller children you may want to get one insert per two of them. I usually get 4 papers and that keeps my pantry well stocked.
I often get asked “Why do I need more than 1 insert every week?”
The answer to that question is answered with another question – “How much money do you want to save?”
