Do you clip coupons? Do you actually remember to take them to the store?

Do you clip just for groceries or other things as well?

  • Yes I do. My husband buys the 3 major papers for the area on Sunday for the coupons and guinea pig cage liners and I print them online. I make a list and everything that I have a coupon for, I write (coup) next to it. Then I arrange them according to the aisles in the grocery store. If it's a good shopping trip, I can save up to $50 with coupons.

  • I clip for everything I use. Then I file the coupons according to category and use my master list to make grocery lists and monthly supply lists. Then I cross check to make sure that I have coupons for what I need to purchase. I usually have $10 - $25 worth of coupons for a month of groceries and $25 - $40 worth of coupons for monthly supplies.

  • Yes. I do. I have a little coupon organiziner I keep in my purse. If I didn't do that I would forget it. Terrible memory, I can blame that on my three kids. Lol

  • I use coupons and put them in my purse before going to the store. I write my list and through through coupon holder. I move all the coupons I want to use up front and then on my list I put a circle with a c around it to let me know I have a coupon to use. I usually just do pet food, kids items, and of course food.

  • Yes, I clip away at whatever discount I can get on stuff I buy.

  • I clip them every Sunday from 2 papers and online, put them in my big envelope in my purse. Then when the weekly ads come out I go through, figure out what coupons I need and then put them in another envelope with the store name on it, and all the envelopes are in my purse, so when I am out and stop I can just pull out the one envelope and have all the ones I need right there. I goto 3 or 4 stores (2grocery, walmart and dollar general) so its nice having them separate. And no I dont goto all 4 in one day, sometimes I dont even goto all 4 in a week, those are just my main stores!

  • I try to... I spend so long going through them all and sorting them out... I hate when I get to the store and want to buy something and just KNOW that I have a coupon for it but I left it at home.... Although... I still all too often forget to bring them when I go...

  • I do clip some coupons, but I don't use them much anymore. It' uncommon to find coupons for the things I buy most - apple juice, milk, eggs, flour, vegtables.......

    I do take them in case I can get a good deal on cereal or toilet paper. Lots of coupons for those things.
