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.

That they have way more free time then I do.

And that they are way better organized then I am.

I think that they are more dedicated than I am. I have said over and over that I want to do this yet I don't.  I actually envy them. If I could save crazy amounts of money and build a stockpile, it would free up that money to spend on ohter things.

Same here but i make sure everything has a place and its organized :)

Quoting Anonymous: I won't do that either. Yeah, I may like to stock up a little but I don't have a ton of extra space.

Quoting hopeful_leslie: I use coupons on everything, doesnt matter where im at or going.. The only thing i refuse to do (and cant stand when others do) is clear a shelf. Yes i use multiples but i also keep in mind that others need the same products as my family.

One of the stores I shop at will show at the top of your receipt how much you've saved so far this year, and so far since January 1st I've saved over $850!

I live in a busy area and within a 1 mile stretch we have a Meijer, Wal-Mart, Plumbs, Sam's Club, Save-a-lot, and Aldi. Just recently we got this store called Daily Deals Food Outlet. I looooove that place. I shop based on sales at these stores too, so I can maximize savings. It's not out of the ordinary for me to hit 3 different stores in one shopping trip either.


Quoting Anonymous: Haha I'm excited about that too. I'm ready to see a receipt that says I saved a decent amount.

Quoting LTryon: When I'm stuck behind them in line I think "oh boy! This is going to take forever!".

Buuuut then when I get done scanning my stuff (i use the u-scans) and I start scanning all of MY coupons, the machine says "beep", but I think "cha-CHING!".lol

I've just recently gotten into couponing, but I get a rush everytime the receipt says I saved more than I spent.

a good way for them to save, yet i do get pissed if they hold up the self check or express lines.

I love to use coupons and price match. So no judgment from me.

I don't normally care if people use coupons but if you are trying to cheat the system and get caught don't argue and freak out. You look ridiculous.
