Now that you have obtained your coupons and you know how to successfully read them it is time to go on a shopping trip. My suggestion is to start small pick one store, yes one store. We suggest this because it gives you the feel of how couponing works but without the overwhelmingness of trying to learn too much at one time. It is best to start with one copycat deal. What is a copycat deal? A copycat deal is a deal that you will see posted that you can do step-by-step to get the understanding of how it works. Check out our deals from a store around you and try to duplicate that deal. Once you do that first deal and see how it works out you will be more comfortable with that knowledge and able to move to bigger trips. Your first trip you may feel nervous or be muttering to yourself what if this doesn't work etc? But if you follow the breakdowns you will be successful.
