  • No. I have tried to, and I would like to, but I've never been able to figure it out. I always spend way more money when I use them than when I don't.

  • Sure do! Its like free money!

  • I always say I will and then I go off and forget them when it's time to shop.

  • Just started to but you have to be careful because allot of stores jack up the prices so your coupon ends up being pointless and you might even end up spending more. I dont have 40 plus hrs a week to collect coupons so I just get online to find some here and there.

  • Yes but only if the coupon makes the price lower than the store brand.

  • when my kids were smaller I did a LOT. I wouldn't buy diapers unless I had double coupons. They're very close in age so they both took multiple naps for a long time.... and I had time to coupon, lol! Plus diaper prices creeped me out . Now I average 1 coupon a month. usually for Tide

  • I can look for the items I have coupons for, double-check the coupons before getting in line, and still forget to actually use the damned things.
