  • i read on aol the other day a lady feeds a family of 6 for about 4 dollars a day. she went to the store with someone for an interveiw and spent .39 cents, before her coupons it would have been 279.00 dollars!!! crazy! and i just found this site where you can download coupons to your savings card for a store, like krogers or something, if the store is participating you can save even more that way and no cutting or searching through coupons. i never used them before gonna start its amazing how much you can save with those things.

  • Wow, that's impressive. I feel like I am the great saver if I manage to save $30 in coupons.

  • It is a little work and pre planning. People who do this eat what they are getting on sake that week, but in my opinion it is worth it. I have been couponing a little while, and I have not become an expert yet.

  • I think from what I have read people who do this spend a good amount of time each week doing nothing but searching circulars and internet coupon sites as well and tracking sale papers. One article I read said the lady spent 5 hours a week doing this... I personally do not have that much time. I have gotten some very good deals at time by searching some.
