I never find any either, so don't feel too bad.

I never use coupons, I only ever see them for junk food, or cleaning products that are still cheaper to make.  The odd time there is one for dog food or the peanut butter we buy.  But that is it!

I mostly find coupons for things I don't need or use.

I use almond milk so I always find them. Also c&h sugar usually has them in the weekly paper. For meat sales I occasionally get a few from foster farms otherwise I wait for the store sales or the coupons that are on the actual package

I always buy double when they are on sale. I know coupons.com had cheese and milk coupons a couple weeks ago. They go fast.and you have to check daily for the deals.

I don't see a lot of coupons for staples unless it's store coupons/flyers, and even then, store brand or off brand is usually a better deal. Do you have a Kwik Trip, or similar near you?

I'm always finding coupons for milk, cheese, produce. They are there:) usually it is the store's coupon. A lot of times, I'll find coupons like, buy 2 lbs of meat, get a free gallon of milk or something like that.
I agree withnmaxwell816, the drug stores like CVS and Walgreens often have the cheapest milk and eggs. This week, I think CVS has milk for $2.79.

Never heard of that store, we basically have the big box chains or specialty stores. Nothing in the middle.

Quoting JohnnyCakes:
