Are you a "Coupon Mom"?

I can't say that I really save that much $ by shopping with coupons mainly because the items and brands that I buy do not offer coupons.

  • not really.. i usually buy store brand, and they rarley offer coupons on that.... if i have a really good coupon and the name brand is less than store brand with it i can save a lot.. but on average i save between 40-50 a visit.. weekly

  • not really. It has to be a GREAT coupon for me to save more than just buying the store brand and the stuff I do buy name brand rarely has coupons. I will seek out coupons for things on BOGO at publix since you can use 2 coupons on those.

  • yes---I use coupons whenever I can. I don't care if I only save a few bucks---every little bit is worth it.

  • I do use coupons but I combine it with sales. For example this week at Kroger, Kashi cereal is on sale for $1.99. I have a coupon for $1 off 1 box so I willbe getting it for 99 cents. I use two main websites to find my deals- www.southernsavers.com and www.thriftymama.com.

  • I do use coupons from the paper and all you mags. and I shop at kroger so I also can print and download to card. I save about sixty to some times a hundred dollars a week matching ads with coupons. So I think they help with food costs. If no coupons for what you buy try their web sites and sometimes they will send coupons just for liking the item.

  • I have been known to collect a few coupons here and there, but usually either forget to use them or when I compare the store brand price to the price I'd pay for a name brand item with a coupon, the store brand usually wins anyway.
