When you are planning a household budget, it is often hard to spend the money on a new product that your family just might not like. One thing to do is to make a point of only trying out a new product if you have a coupon for it, that way if for whatever reason your family does not like it, you will not lose as much money as you would of if you bought the product at full price.
This can also work to get your family involved in coupon hunting. If your kids really want to try the latest cool brand of sugary cereal, make a deal with him or her that you will buy it, but only if they find a coupon for it. This can make your weekend coupon hunting times a family affair.
It is good to keep in mind that many companies will offer fabulous discount coupons on new products in order to get people to try them out. So even if you are brand loyal, you can save a great deal of money by using some of these new products particularly if you would have bought them by another company anyways.
You can also try only buying new products on a personal recommendation, to prevent those impusle buys, even when you do have that tempting coupon on something new.
