  • yes, but I make sure to only clip coupons for stuff I actually need or use on a regular basis. If I buy stuff I generally wouldn't just because there's a coupon on it, it completely defeats the purpose - saving money.

  • Yes I clipped coupons it helps out a lot on the bill. I only clip the ones that I know that I will use. I especially like the buy one get one free or one that you can get the item free.

  • I clip some if I know the product is on sale but honestly unless it is a phenomenal coupon I can still get the generic brand for less. And the stuff I do buy name brand rarely has coupons!

  • I clip a good coupon if I see one but I don't do it routinely (mainly because I don't look through the papers/mail routinely) but whether or not I actually remember to take the coupon to the store is a different story.

  • I must admit that I'm not, but I'm going to start. My Dad showed me how much money I can save!!!

  • I do
    I buy alot of stuff if its cheap/free even if we wont use it because then i can donate it.
    Couponing if you have the extra $$ to stockpile on good sales makes ALOT of sense.
    You would be amazed how much you can save especially if you have a local store that will double/triple.
