This week's Super Saver hint comes from Robert McMahon of Buffalo, who writes:
"About a year ago, I began carrying a dozen or so $1 coupons in my wallet next to my cash. I did this so I wouldn't lose the coupons, but I found this to be so handy when I run into the store, and often one of the coupons that I have in my wallet is redeemed on a sale item.
"If I didn't do this, I would forget the coupons at home. Having them in my wallet for staple items reminds me to redeem them, since I make eye contact with the coupons on occasions other than during grocery shopping. This may not be a real brain teaser of a hint, but it sure has made me use my coupons more effectively."
