There are several stages of a couponer
1.) The hesitant couponer – There aren’t any coupons in the paper for products I need.
2.) The leary couponer - I’ve tried couponing but I don’t see how using a $1.oo coupon really saves me money. Yes, I saved $5.00 off my transaction today, but the time to clip the coupons wasn’t worth the time.
3.) The newbie couponer – Just getting started, trying to wrap their brain around all of the techinques of couponing
4.) The excited newbie couponer – Wahoo!! They get it and they are off to run and do every deal possible and could become an extreme couponer
5.) The burnout couponer – Who feels couponing takes up too much of their time and considering quitting.
6.) The hang up their scissors couponer – The couponer whose quit, cancelled their papers and is done, no more clipping coupons.
7.) The go back to couponing couponer – I’ve been spending too much money, I need to get back into couponing, but needs motiviation.
8.) The laid back couponer – Not an everyday deal chaser, limited stockpile, can say no to an extremely hot deal.
