- What sort of time and effort do I have to put in to be good at this stuff?
- Is there anyone else out there whose hard/dirty work of finding coupons I can piggyback off of?
- Am I better using grocery store coupons or going the wholesale route with places like Costco and Sam’s Club?
- Should I focus on sales or coupons? Is it possible to layer both without going crazy keeping track of everything?
