September is National Coupon Month, so what better topic to talk about on Talk of the Town than couponing?
But when my producer said that couponing was “old” and that we needed to talk about new ways to save, I gathered all my best tips and searched the web for the latest apps to help you save money not just online, but on everyday purchases like groceries and personal care products.
Whether you missed the show or just missed some of the apps I shared, I’ve got them all listed for you below. Happy couponing!
Top Tips for Couponing 2.015
* Follow your favorite stores on social media (that’s how I got free jeans from Old Navy & Gap)
