  • I tryed it, too. Not worth it. You can save 50 cents on the brand name or pay $1. Less for the generic.
    Count the time printing, making the list and trying to find the correct size of this and that while shopping.
    I get several emails from different sites, but don't even open them anymore.
    Good luck
    I also, live in a small town - no double coupons or much comatition between the two grocery stores.

  • My two favorite sites are
    Swagbucks - http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/Shareleann
    and MyPoints.com (there's a link on my facebook) - You can print coupons from both places and you get points when you use them. I use the points I accumulate all year to get christmas gifts for friends and family!

    You can also "like" brand names on Facebook and get coupons that way. And, of course, your Sunday paper!
    I always have extra coupons & have joined "coupon trains" to pass them on (mail/give your extras to someone & they take what they need & put in their extras & pass it on to someone else). I'd send you some if you wanted them.

    Couponing is totally worth it as long as you get what you need! Don't get a bunch of junk you can't/won't use just because you have a coupon. I average about a 50% savings on every shopping trip!

    Good Luck!

  • I used to use coupons a lot, but it seems now there are very few for the things I use. I only buy the paper when the P&G booklet is in it. (I contacted P&G and they send me an e mail when it's going to be there). Coupon mom.com used to be a good site but they don't have many that I canuse anymore either. I bookmarked the blog mentioned above to check out, but I'm finding it helps more to check your sale inserts from the stores and go for the sales.

  • Thewy can be worth it. I usually save atleast $5 each time I shop sometimes up to $40 for groceries. It just depends on what you buy and what coupons you can find. They really help out

  • I've found they really help, now if we could eat body wash and deodorant they would be even better!!! LOL

    Each Sunday I cut them out and when the grocery store ad comes on Wednesday I match up my coupons with what is on sale and go shopping. I usually save 58% at the grocery store and all my toothpaste, body washes, shampoos, make-up I get for free or for pennies at drugstores.
