For those looking for a bargain this holiday season, a free event this weekend may have you snipping and clipping well after Christmas has come and gone.
Jennise Colin-Ventura, known as
"Savealotmom," shares tips on where to
get coupons, how to read the fine print and how to
be an ethical couponer.
Her main focus is teaching people to be ethical couponers. She teaches several “no-nos” when it comes to couponing, including taking peel-off coupons from products in stores shoppers aren’t buying and taking coupons out of other newspapers in the rack.
“There are a lot of bad behaviors in couponing. The reason some of the bad behaviors happen is (couponers) don’t understand what they are doing negatively affects the coupon community,” she said. “Some don’t know what they are doing is a no-no. I’m hoping by sharing information, they will learn to back off.”
Jennise is a columnist for the Killeen Daily Herald on ethical couponing and budgeting. Be sure to read her column.
