  • I use them for my uncle...he's elderly so if he can save a couple bucks in food stamps on one trip...it could come in handy near that last week of the month

  • I use coupons all the time. My local grocery store has coupons that they print up and I have gone around the store shopping using these coupons and saved close to $100. I have to feed my family for 4 on $668 of food stamps which is a lot but most people spend more. I try and save as much as possible. I buy store brand of a lot of things including formula after my WIC runs out. For formula the store brand powder in the big can cost as much as a name brand powder in the small can. I am poor I need to use coupons.

  • Sometimes, but usually the brands I buy are cheaper on their own then the one that the coupon is for...even after the coupon. What is cool is with our wic you can use the buy one get one free thing, as long as it's still wic approved.

  • There may only be two of us, but, I get $88.00 dollars and try to make that be enough for the whole month. So, YES, I use coupons.

  • In response to the "I have to feed my family for 4 on $668 of food stamps which is a lot but most people spend more."

    I'm not on FS, I have a family of 5, we buy very few processed foods, cook from scratch and buy lots of fresh fruit, organic chicken, beef and pork and I only spend roughly $500 a month on food. I don't use coupons either because they don't have coupons for what I buy usually.
