Burke Wallace has a 10-minute-a-day strategy for serious saving.
Name: Burke Wallace
Hometown: Sacramento, Calif.
This California teacher doesn't consider himself extreme, but friends and family know he's serious about finding deals.
His 10-minute-a-day strategy is to search online for coupons before he goes out to eat or shop, using sites like restaurant.com
. Plus, he "likes" favorite companies on Facebook to see if they are offering deals, and becomes a club member at stores where he shops often to get discounts and rebates.
"Part of my trick is only using coupons on things I already plan on buying," says Wallace. "Some weeks that means lots of applicable coupons. Other weeks just a few."
