  • I coupon but not like those extreme couponers that you see on that TLC show. My goal is to match up a sale item with a coupon to get things extra cheap.

    I only buy things that I will use and not buy things only because I have an awesome high value coupon to use.

    I maybe spend 45 minutes to an hour a week cutting coupons and roughly planning my shopping trips, so not long at all.

    At the least I save 50% off of my grocery bill and at the most I have saved 100% and actually getting cash back. (see the walmart coupon policy :) )

    On average though I save roughly 75% off of my bill which is pretty darn great for a family of four!

    I also use coupons for clothes, toys, and beauty supplies. I think that couponing is most certainly worth the time and effort. There is a learning curve to it and it takes practice. But isn't that a fact of life anyway?

    A good beginner site for couponing is hip2save.com

  • I do. It varies. I only saved $50 this past trip, two weeks ago I saved $91. Of course I'm not lucky enough to live in an area with double coupons and such, so I still pay out more than I'd like.

  • I try. I am really good about cutting out the coupon and putting in my purse. Then when I remember I have it - it has expired already:( I have not given up though. I do remember to use them for diapers and such. I do save a couple bucks with those.

  • I am a beginner and have had some really great deals. With the TLC show though it is getting really popular and many times the shelves are empty. I also do not live anywhere near a store that doubles coupons!
