  • I used to cut coupons and then always forgot about them when I went shopping. Now I just look for deals in the store.

  • I know what you mean. I'm lucky enough to have a grandmother who does it for me then hands the coupons to me before I go out. It's a clever system aha.

  • I am happy if I use enough to pay for my newspaper subscription. Actually I usually get about 10% per shopping trip, but not a big Internet coupon-er, several stores around here have started limiting or refusing Internet/home printed coupons.

  • I used to do it. Before I had kids. Now I don't have the time.

  • I get them online in my email, but most of the stuff is so off the wall that I don't bother printing them. I do keep the ones out of the dogfood bag,lol... It seems to be the only one worth using.

  • Not time consuming or complicated- but I don't think it's always worth it. And I do think you need to take into account the cost of newspapers and printing used to acquire coupons, plus the amount of time it takes you to match coupons with sales.

  • I still use coupons ,but mainly for what i purchase,or need.Seems you have to buy alot other stuff to get the deals.
