A shopper has purchased $25 worth of products for $2, but needs to act quickly.
A great way consumers can save money today is by taking advantage of coupons.
In fact, a study of CouponFollow shows that the average household could save $1,465 per year using those coupons.
Coupons can even come in handy at CVS even though pharmacies typically charge a premium for items compared to major retailers like Walmart and Aldi.

As always, keep in mind that prices vary by location.
Coupons can be used online or through the CVS app.
First, a product (Burt’s Bees Toothpaste) is currently on sale for $4.99 each, down from the usual price of $6.59.
But you’ll want to buy two of those because you’ll get $3 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB).
Plus, there’s a $5 discount coupon to apply to both items.
The next item is mild body washwhich costs $2.19 for each container.
But there is a promotion to buy one and get half off plus a $3 ECB reward.
That would bring the price down to about 29 cents for those two items.
She then bought Cetaphil wipes, which she said cost $3.99.
However, the article was list for $3.89, according to the online store seen by The Sun.
For that item, TikToker used a $3 coupon.
The last item he picked up was what he described as a Kiss “nail file” for $2.19.
To reduce the cost to just pennies, she used a $2 cosmetics coupon.
Also, the bargain hunter applied another $2 discount because she spent more than $12.
In total, he claimed they cost him $1.85.
Although he paid $7.85 out of pocket, he received $6 in the ECB.
Also, keep in mind that some of the offers expire in days.
For example, Burt’s $5 coupon expires on September 24.
Other ways to save
Besides coupons, you may be missing out on other ways to save money, especially when it comes to the grocery store.
One includes buying store brand items instead of name brands.
This is said to save shoppers up to 30 percent.
And if you’re worried about sacrificing the taste of private label products compared to the featured brands, you shouldn’t.
A market research study conducted by IRi found that 75 percent of respondents think the quality of store-brand items is as good as the major ones in the country, as cited by Ramsey Solutions.
Also, shoppers should be on the lookout for clearance items.
At Walmart, for example, you could save up to 90 percent by taking advantage of the deals in that section.
Also, buying bulk products with a longer shelf life could be another way to make it so you make fewer trips to the grocery store.
For example, one shopper spent less than $100 on groceries that lasted a couple of weeks for two people using that strategy.
And this foodie spends $50 a week on groceries just by shopping at Aldi and Costco.
