IMPOSSIBLE TO EXTREME COUPON IN WEST MICHIGAN :(

I swear it's impossible. None of the store in my city or any surrounding cities have the store rewards cards or double coupons...a few offer money off your next purchase but not too many. So basically I'm SOL right?

You can still do good with the sales and using coupons on the sale items. I always do that!

Where are you at in west michigan? I'm in the South Haven area and I'm not extreme extreme, but I've managed to get a LOT of stuff free or pennies on the dollar. It's not totally impossible

Here in Fl they don't double coupons and only 1 big store has a rewards card, but it's in the next city. I still manage to get great deals, just have to look. Do you have a walgreens or cvs up there?

 nope! Where I live none of the stores do double coupons but publix has B1G1 free sales and so does Winn-dixie and I stack manufacturer coupons with store coupons and get what's on sale. On my last trip I got $112 worth of stuff for $6.84

Sounds about the same here. We have a Walmart, Walgreens, a couple (expensive) small town grocery stores, and that's about it. It sucks, and it makes us work a little harder at it, but in the last week I've gotten a $4 bottle of conditoner for 20 cents, 13 trial size deodarants with 3 cents each overage, and an order at walgreens of maxi pads and kids toothpaste that I earned $1.75 over what I paid in register rewards. Don't give up just yet, something is better then nothing right?

I have a good thing I'm about to get. I have 2 coupons each for $1/1 Mueller's pasta and it's on sale at Meijer for $0.99...so I'll get 2 boxes for free with 2 cents overage :) I also have enough coupons for pizza rolls that I'll be getting 20 boxes for $9.90 (basically 2/$1)

I live in Traverse City and there is also no place that offers double coupon days.  But kmart has their rewards plan and meijers has mperks.  I am new to couponing so I am still learning.

I'm in Minnesota, we have 2 grocery stores, a Walgreens, Wal-mart, Target & Kmart.  None of which offer double coupons or stacking coupons (I've heard that Walgreens does, but I've never done it).  Regardless, I've saved quite a bit of money just watching sales and using coupons but am looking for more ideas on how to save more.  :)
