Do you use coupons when you shop?

I've NEVER used coupons and me and my husband are so broke! lol. But my grandma starting giving me the ones she didn't use and we decided for one week, we'd try it. It took us almost an hour longer at the grocery store but we spent 120 and saved 65. It was the greatest feeling ever! I will always use coupons from now on! Anyways, do you ahve a coupon book? Or how does your system work? We just started this so we both walk around with handfuls of coupons looking for stuff and I need to be more organized about it. lol.

  • Mom was a coupon clipper. I have been clipping coupons for over 39 years. I once belonged to a coupon/refunding club during the height of major promotions by companies such as Proctor & Gamble. I always had rebate money and free product coupons coming in. If you live near a CVS drug store I understand they have in store kiosks where you can download coupons to use in their store. The smart phones also have apps that will allow you to download coupons which can be scanned at the check out. Check your Sunday paper every week. There is usally a coupon insert with loads of money saving coupons. Also go to the merchandisers website. Just by becoming a member companies such as Colgate will send you coupons via email.

  • I shop at the commissary which is already a saver and then save 30-70 percent on top of that with coupons! Very good way to save!

  • Make sure you hit online coupon sites, just punch in what your are looking for and boom out come coupons. You can really save a lot with coupons...better in my pocket than others!

  • Yep, we have ALWAYS used coupons. I use every week. They are the same ones in the Sunday paper, all in one place.
