  • all the time. i download and print from kroger, newspapers, mags, even the computer. I save about $100.00 each week. I usually get groceries once a week for about one hundred dollars for a family of five. Coupons to me really do help.

  • All the time! Not to an extreme , but they can save you so much! Just using them on diapers wipes and tp I save about $25+ a months on my brands. It works out to be cheaper than store brands to :D

  • my SO thinks i am crazy ... a friend gave me 15 sets of coupons from this past week and the last few, so i am using them to my full advantage i can get 15 boxes of pasta free (in multiple shopping trips) and then a great deal on shampoo. i can get a bottle of shampoo and conditiner for 1.06 for both, he thinks im crazy for stocking up... but we are looking to buy a house and i want to stay home after the baby and either work less or do a home day care... gotta get him to realize its in our best interest to stock up

  • Every chance I get. Since making the effort to plan and shop according to sales + coupons, my grocery and household bill is down an average of 50%. I save between $100-$150 every month.

  • I do stock up on items as well. Your SO thinks your crazy your note. My girls do the same when I go on and order all free samples I can get. But the other night they sure were happy when I got them a package of peanut butter from target to sample.

  • Not as much right now, if there's a good deal I try to, but I'm nothing like the coupon people on the show extreme couponing by any means.

  • yeah me either our store limits 4 of the same item in the same order...
    but i have enough to buy 23 boxes of pasta and 30 bottles of shampoo or conditiner and it will cost me 15 plus tax
