๐Ÿ˜ฑSaved 52% on my grocery bill this week! $63 literally came off my bill at checkout!๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป So I decided it was time to do a ๐ŸŒŸBACK TO BASICS๐ŸŒŸ video for all of you guys who want to know how to save the most money on your groceries—and how to use digital coupons to save each time you shop! . I used to clip paper coupons back in the day. Money was SUPER tight for us and clipping coupons helped us get by each month—I saved SO much money doing it. But things have changed over the years and now everything has moved Digital. . All you have to do is tap to add them through an app and scan the barcode at checkout! SO MUCH EASIER than doing it on your computer! So much less time consuming! And I saved $63 doing it during my shopping trip this week. ๐Ÿ’ฅBOOM! . If you aren’t using digital coupons, you’re wasting potential money. Sorry to be so straight forward. But it’s true! And I don’t want you guys to waste money you could easily save.๐Ÿ˜˜ Cuz I can think of a lot of things I’d rather buy with that $63! (๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘œ๐ŸŽŸ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜‰) Without using digital coupons, I would have paid that money to the store.๐Ÿ™ˆ . ๐ŸŒŸSo it’s time to head over to my newest YouTube Video: TheMeleaShow.com/DigitalCouponsHowTo (โœจlink in profileโœจ) . ๐Ÿ‘†๐ŸปFirst question, do you use digital coupons regularly? Or is this a new concept for you? And, for those of you who do use digital coupons regularly, tell me the MOST you’ve ever saved during a shopping trip using them!๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป The coupon newbies need to see how awesome they truly are! โฌ‡๏ธTELL ME BELOW!
