CARD OF THANKS Our sincere thanks and appreciation to those who remembered us with the many expressions of sym- pathy at the time of the death of our loved one. --The Family of Bess M. Kramer ,llll i LINES WITH LYNDA I by Lymia S. Bags | Jewell County Extension i_ Home Economist Cut Costs Do you know which coupons are most popular in the sup- ermarket? If you guessed cof- fee, then laundry detergent you were on the right track. Coffee coupons account for 25 percent of all coupons re- deemed. Recent surveys by USDA indicate that four out of five families, at least occasionally, use coupons and/or refund of- fers for food shopping. With food prices continuing to climb, more and more con- sumers will no doubt make use of them as a means of saving on the grocery bill. The average consumer could be able to reduce their food bill by 8 percent if coupons were used smartly. Smart shoppers take full advantage of coupons. This does not mean that they use every coupon they see. Know- ing how and when, and what to avoid is the secret to making the most from cou- pons. The "cents off" grocery coupon, on the average is worth 15 cents and is the easiest to use. Money is simply refunded when a cou- pon is presented at the time of purchase. The typical refund offer is worth, on the average, $1.25 and often requires up to three proof of purchases, such as boxtops, labels, net weight statements or universal pro- duct codes. These must be sent to the manufacturers for the refund. The use of coupons, how- ever, leads to bargains only if smart shopping skills are used i ACCO Seed CORN MILO FORAGES ALFALFA SOYBEAN VARIETIES: ACCO 401 UR Classic II OeSoto Williams 79 Union Accounts not due until JULY 31 for farmers con- venlence.

Fol- lowing are a few things you can do to get more from your coupons. * Decide whether you ac- tually need the product and will be able to use it. Then compare to see if the product with the coupon actually is cheaper than a store or gen- eric brand. * Read the fine print on the coupon before you clip it. A "50 cent off" will catch your eye, but if you must buy five boxes of plastic bags to get your 50 cents the deal loses its punch. * Study the coupon so you know which sizes of product apply as well as when the coupon expires. * Know what you must do to redeem the coupon. Mail it in? Make a minimum pur- chase? Gather proof of pur- chases from other food items? * Watch for ads that allow "double plays." This is when you use a coupon on a product which is on sale. It is possible to make a "triple play" if the boxtop or proof of purchase from the "double play" pro- duct can be used with a refund coupon. A smart shopper who uses coupons will spend several hours a week clipping, filing and studying the marketplace to save money. But cou- pons do not replace other smart shopping methods, such as, unit pricing, menu plan- ning and watching for spe- cials.
