Do you clip coupons?

I do sometimes, but then I forget to use them. I also try to eat really healthy so I have a hard time finding coupons for healthy foods.

  • I clip them and forget too! I was getting the paper delivered thinking that the coupons I use will just pay for the paper itself..but since I keep forgetting, I just canceled the paper. And you are right, coupons are filled with junk food on sale. I start looking for the cleaning products and other supplies which have proven worthwhile. But most of the time, I end up throwing the coupons away.

  • i was behind a mom of two in the store yesterday, and harris teeter has now put a limit on how many coupons you can use. but she had an expandable folder for her coupons and everything. and she just blushed like she was embarrased when i got behind her. i was like honestly, im envious, i wish i had the discipline to do all of this and save this money!!! i need to start looking for more than just diaper coupons!

  • Yup! I do! Of course, I don't get the paper, but the mail around here sticks the coupon inserts in the mailbox anyways. Plus I'm on some mailing lists for my fave products, so they'll send out books of coupons now and then too. A couple months ago, I went grocery shopping, got $100+ worth of stuff and only paid $20. Of course my mom can do better though. She used to get CAR LOADS of groceries for $20 and sometimes less!

  • I would if I could find coupons for things I actually buy, but I'm not gonna buy something just because I have a coupon for it.

    I have tried to go to that coupon site, but I can't get my computer to download the 'coupon printer' or whatever, so I just gave up.
