Do you find that you don't have the extra money to stock up on items that suddenly go on sale for a really unbeatable price? One way to solve this is to begin putting whatever dollar amount you saved using coupons, buying an item on sale, etc., into a jar.
For example, if you bought something using a 50-cent coupon, put 50-cents into a jar. Many stores print the amount you saved on that particular shopping trip somewhere on the receipt. If you do this faithfully, you will not only have a stash of cash available to take advantage of the really good sales, you will also be able to see with your own eyes how tangible your savings really are.
