  • I clip coupons but never anything like that. I think my best is about $45 savings

  • I haven't watched it, but it seems like most of the coupon things I see would require me to buy stuff we don't normally get anyway. I never find the good coupons like buy a pound of ground beef, get a free gallon of milk. You know, ones for the stuff we all use anyway.

  • I don't have time to do that. Time is money, so if I spend all that time finding and clipping coupons I would be spending just as much money as if I didn't do it. O:) (nice theory, huh?)

  • I clip coupons, and pair them up with stores sales/specials. For instance, just this week, Walgreens has Gillette fusion Razors on sale for 9.99, I had a 4$ coupon, and received 5$ in register rewards (like 5$ gift card) it was like getting the razor for 99 cents....stuff like that.

  • I don't do coupons at all, but really should

    Answer by parajumper3 at 2:43 PM on Jan. 17, 2011

  • No, but I have so much to do, that I also have to consider what my time is worth. I clip coupons for items I know I will use and either need now or will need before the coupon expires. Otherwise, I've wasted my time and or money.

  • I don't have time for extreme couponing. I garden and buy many groceries from a restaurant supply store..helps keep costs down.

  • I use coupons but not to that exstream, just dont have the time to do what they do. I would love it if I could walk into a store and come out with that much stuff for just a few dollars.
