Clipping coupons is worth the time and energy

UNDATED (KWWL) - Cutting coupons may not have been chic before, but it's time to get frugal and pinch a few pennies.

"If you want to save a hundred dollars a week on your groceries, you do need to plan and be organized," explained coupon clipper Stephanie Nelson.

Nelson is known as a coupon mom.

"Here's a promotion," said Nelson. "If you buy nine of this manufacturer's items, I'll get a coupon for 5 dollars off my next shopping order plus a free one dollar reusable shopping bag. And guess what? I also have coupons and this store doubles coupons. That's the perfect storm."

Double coupons have a big payoff, but you have to set aside brand loyalty.

 "I am completely brand flexible. So, in this case, if this item is usually 2.49. I'll actually pay 49 cents for this item," said Nelson.
