As the old saying goes, "watch the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves."
For many active living seniors, it's a point of pride that they are able to do all of things that they want while sticking to a modest budget.
Many people scoff at clipping coupons. It's sometimes seen as a passé waste of time and money.
But a report published in the Consumer Reports Money Advisor suggests that for those who take the time to check for relevant coupons, the savings may add up pretty quickly.
Here are a few tips that the report offered to interested shoppers:
1) Check online. If you search through the paper and don't find a coupon for a product that you buy on a regular basis, look online for deals.
2) Use social networking sites. Becoming a fan of your favorite brands or products on Facebook or Twitter may lead to savings down the road.
3) Keep your coupons organized! It's hard to find what you need if you keep your clippings in a giant pile. Find a system that will make them easy to access.
According to Consumerist, the most likely person to use a coupon is an affluent consumer with a household income of over $70,000 a year.
