  • I still can't figure out how to do extreme couponing.

  • About in the middle :) I use coupons VERY frequently but there are some impulse buys (nothing big at ALL) but a gossip mag every once in a while or something :)

  • I just never remember coupons. If a coupon is sticking out from under the price tag, or physically taped to the item I will use it, but I don't have a ziplock baggy of coupons in there with me.

  • Let's see........ I bought a paper a few weeks ago and I haven't even had time to read it, let alone go through the coupons.

  • I usually buy the store brands for most things.

  • I haven't done it yet, meooma, but there are tons of forums and blogs dedicated to the practice. I've been reading up. I found out which store in my town to set my sights on and I just have to start collecting coupons (which is harder in my area because there's not recycling dumpsters to dive into).

  • Neither one. Our local stores don't have clubs or programs and won't take internet coupons. The coupons I get from the Sunday paper are clear on their limitations and I'm not commiting fraud to save a few dollars and there is no way I'm turning into a hoarder to be on a stupid TV show.
