Royal-Coupons-Code-2.png


With Christmas fast approaching, you need to start thinking ahead. Presents, food, decorations: it all mounts up. For many people, this is the most expensive time of year. So how do you go about creating the perfect holiday without declaring bankruptcy at the end of it? Couponing is a great way to save money when it comes to every aspect of the season. You’ve probably seen programmes on extreme couponing. People keeping files and files of cut out coupons and spending them all in one fell swoop. Causing queues at the tills and leaving a new cashier slightly traumatised. It’s important to remember that this is extreme couponing. Not all couponing is like this. Here are a few tips and tricks for beginners to the coupon game.


Put the scissors down
Yes, coupons are available in newspapers, magazines and various other places. But not all coupons have to be physical. You can get plenty of coupons online. This saves the hassle of cutting out coupons and trying to store them somewhere that they won’t get lost. Check out the web for sites which offer coupons for all sorts of things. It’s always worth a look, as you can get some great discounts. For example, this Lord and Taylor Promo Code from Stylini.


Space it out
You don’t have to conduct one massive shop to end all shops. It’s not necessary to leave cashiers and store managers trembling in your wake, as you load up your yearly grocery shop onto the belt at the tills. Be organised. Split your tasks and carry them out on different days. Use one day for decorations. One for festive food shopping. Another for family presents. If you work by this kind of schedule, everything will be completed in due course. It also means you can organise your coupons for each day, which will mean less fuss and more time to check out the goods in store.


Have a gameplan
When you enter a store, know what it is that you’re looking for. Don’t wander aimlessly, as you’ll end up picking up useless bits and bobs. This will waste time and money. Have a shopping list with all the necessary items. You can check out most stores itineraries online, so you can get a good idea of what you can get and where. Ask an assistant in store for the items’ exact locations, or to show you to them. This way nothing is missed out and you go home with everything you had coupons for.


Shop online
Online shopping is perhaps the easiest way to organise your couponing. If items are out of stock, you can order them to be delivered at a later date or into store. You won’t get to store and have a wasted journey. You can also search for coupons as you shop. See an item you like? Browse coupon sites to check if there are any offers and deals on it. A lot of stores will also offer price match, so if you have a coupon that makes something cheaper somewhere else, most stores will offer you the same price.

Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…
