If you have to buy coupons, why it’s worth paying for them.

Did you know that the average family of just 2 people spends $7,500 a year for groceries and the average family of 4 spends between $10,000 and $12,000 a year.   That is a lot of money and the odds of coupons being used is around 1.6 percent by the entire population.  $1.46 trillion dollars is spent on average in a years time for the groceries consumed.  Of that only $2.75 billion is turned in for coupon value on average.  Coupon enthusiast are responsible for 83 percent of all coupons used.  These numbers are both amazing and staggering!  

Why this matters when it comes down to purchasing coupons?  If purchasing coupons is the only option because you can’t get them for free in your area, it matters because the other choice is to continue to pay full value for items and be part of the statistic that is paying between $7,500 – $12,000 a year on groceries.   Who wants to be part of that crowd?  Not me, that’s for sure.  

Look at it this way.  Let’s say it’s going to cost you $1,000 out of pocket over a years time to purchase the amount of coupons you need to supply your family with goods (give or take with shipping charges included if being sent through the mail).  With spending $1,000 on the coupons you drop your average grocery bill from $10,000 a year to let’s say $4,000 a year.  Take that $4,000 a year and add in the $1,000 for the coupons.  You are at a total of $5,000 a year which would then be a savings of $5,000 a years.  $10,000 – $5,000 = $5,000!  Sometimes you have to spend a little money to save and make a lot of money.

So now you can take that $5,000 a year savings and start a college fund for your kids, or a long overdue vacation or purchase a home or a car.  So many more things to do with the money then give to a grocery store (which is already making part of the $1.46 trillion in sales) and you get the items you need to meet your families needs and are still saving big money! 

So yes, at the beginning, middle and end of the day, it’s worth purchasing coupons if that is your only option to getting them.
