A WOMAN who is obsessed with couponing has claimed it can save you £7,500 this year.
TikTok user Karla, who posts under @karlasavings, uploaded a series of videos showing how she doesn’t pay full price for items.
In a video, she wrote: “Your 2022 is going to be amazing because you’re going to start saving over $10k (£7.5k) a year by couponing.”
Karla shared how she was fired from her job after returning after maternity leave and was left in a panic as to how their family would survive financially.
She explained how she had three children and they were living off one income at the time.
The mum revealed they “survived by couponing all our needs”.
She added: “Having 2 babies in diapers is what really pushed me to coupon.”
Karla advised that you can start couponing by finding a popular store that you shop at then search for influencers who coupon there.
Although the US-based mum suggested stores such as Walmart, there are bargain hunters such as Holly Smith, who runs Coupon Queen, and frequently posts about UK shops.
One of the ways she saves money is with Amazon pricing glitches and freebies.
