Did you know that September is National Coupon Month…..

September is a month dedicated to thrifty living; it’s National Coupon Month. Here’s how these penny-pinching papers came into being:

– The first hand-written coupons, for free fountain drinks promoting Coca-Cola, were given out in 1894.

– Coupons soon spread to local grocery stores and supermarkets, eventually becoming their own industry during the late 1950s.

-The first National Coupon Month was in 1998. In 2000, the program expanded to help parents teach children about the importance of saving money.

-In 2008, 89 percent of consumers used coupons to save money, giving them about $2.3 billion in savings!
