Buying a product at a discounted price with a coupon is better than paying full-price - but if coupon clipping leads you to make purchases you wouldn't normally make, it's money wasted, not money saved.
Only use coupons if they apply to your normal and needed purchase items. Otherwise, skip the coupon and skip the purchase altogether.

Hint 1: Hang towels on bars and robes on hooks
Your towels need to properly air-dry in order to be able to reuse them two to three times. Make sure they’re properly hung to dry.
If you’re a bathrobe person, a dedicated hook for it in the bathroom will make your space feel a little more like a hotel room.
Hint 2: Ripening Hard Avocados
No one wants to eat a hard avocado.
According to some famous chefs you can get an avocado to be soft and rip in less than 20 minutes.
Just wrap the hard avocados in tin foil, place them in the oven at 200 degrees for 20 minutes and they become soft and ripe.
'Go Green' Hint:
Any toilet manufactured before 1992 uses at least 3.5 gallons per flush. Modern low-flow toilets use less than 1.28 gallons, saving 60% of the water.
A new toilet may cost a few hundred bucks, but it will save you several thousand dollars in water consumption over its lifetime.
