What do you think of those that use numerous coupons?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
It's just a question.

I decided a few days ago that I'm going to start finding and using coupons. Do I have to do it? No. I just want to save more money.

I coupon, I stock up on non perishables a lot... (noodles, rice, frozen veggies etc)

I am guilty of taking coupons off of things... (I found some milk coupons one time and ran around to my friends houses using their computers (and my works computers with their permission) to print them off.. Milk, produce and meat coupons are EXTREMELY rare!!!!

I think they don't know how to cook very well.

That's why I want to do it. DH and I have 4 kids. We spend roughly $6-700 a month in groceries. I'll admit, we do eat well. However, if I could cut down that price, I think it'd be nice.

 I will. I do know that she is very OCD and uses spread sheets and stuff to make it work. Actually, I'm a bit nervous....

 I'm seeing a friend in a few days to learn how to do it properly. She's a coupon queen.

Why? No attitude involved in that question, I just want to know why you think that.

I don't blame you! I just got a $3.00 off any meat coupon and with meat BOGO, I thought that was pretty awesome.

I don't really think anything about them, since I use them too. I hate over paying for things and if I can save money on something then I will!

I think it is great that they do it. I wish I had the time to sit down and do it but between my kids, school, work, and appointments I'm lucky if i have time to clean my house let alone sleep. I have a few friends that do it and they save a ton of money and bring home a ton of stuff for just a few bucks.

I'd be nervous with that too.

I don't think I could do all that though. We have 4 kids, DH owns a business and works full time, I work part time, I'm homeschooling, and there are the extracurriculars.
