- Stone Age Saver – You sit down with your scissors and the newspaper each Sunday to cut out coupons and while your knack for savings is commendable, your technique could stand some updating. Don’t forget the myriad of savings to be had online the next time you’re jotting down your shopping list.
- Super Saver – You get a gold star for stretching your family’s budget to the max! Spending time each week to create a meal plan that matches coupons to what’s on sale in your grocery store’s weekly ad ensures you save big on each shopping trip.
