Vicki Rogers of North Tonawanda says not to fret if you accidentally leave your coupons at home during your next shopping trip. "Don't beat yourself up. Most stores let you bring coupons in the next day," she writes.
It's true. Just stop at the customer service desk and bring both the previous day's receipt and the coupon or coupons you hoped to use. Many stores will refund your money or give store credit.
