  • I do if I have one. I don't coupon clip or anything. Although I should!

  • If I have one that I need then I use it.

  • I do, but not as much as I used to. I used a ton of them when my son was a baby and I will probably start using them more now that we have another one on the way. I love the coupons that Kroger mails out that are connected to your Kroger card! I got some the other day for free bacon, butter, cake mix, and lunchmeat.

  • I use them when i have them. Our local paper only puts them in on Sunday. The paper is 2.00. Some times there isn't any goods ones. So I fell like I wasted 2.00.

  • I don't as much as I used to, but that's because most of what I buy is fresh produce/meat/dairy. Coupons are usually for either dry goods or for processed foods.

  • I tried cutting them out of the newspaper, but even when I carry a bunch of them with me I can't for the life of me remember to actually use them, so I stopped, because I just had a messy pile of expired coupons sitting around.
