Local Woman Shares Tips for Saving Hundreds of Dollars with Coupons
A local group of bargain shoppers will be sharing their tricks of the trade Saturday in Bangor.The organizer of the group began couponing a year ago and says she cuts bills at stores in half, saving hundreds of dollars.She created the Bangor Chapter of Clipping for a Cause so she can introduce couponing to others. The group now has more than one hundred fans on Facebook.Recently, she says couponing has been seen in a negative light with reality shows portraying the shoppers as hoarders, but Green says she is against that behavior. “The good thing about those shows is it does get me fired up about the couponing that’s the good part, what I dislike about the show is that it promotes a hoarding behavior, you don’t need 30 years worth of toilet paper you just don’t,” said Tracy Green. Clipping for a Cause is meeting Saturday at Hope Lutheran Church on Union Street in Bangor at 12:30.
