 LOL!  Yeah, no one needs that!


Quoting campingmomof4:

 I use coupons for the items I use.   No I am not an extreme couponer.  I don't buy 200 candy bars because I have that many coupons to get them for nothing.

 I could never be an extreme couponer, I don't have the patience. LOL


Quoting MichelleMc:

I use coupons but can't me extreme. I won't change brands just to use a coupon. I can't see how that makes it a savings. Also, I don't have the time to sit & do it. If I didn't work ( and I don't have little ones ) I could maybe do it. But bying papers, spending time online, finding all the websites, going to multiple stores with the deals ( then making sure the gas savings was worth it ) Nah.

 I use coupons, but no, I'm not en extreme couponer. I tried to be but all I got was confused!

I actually don't clip a ton of coupons because each week I go to a discount grocer to get what I can from my list before heading to the regular grocery store and I find that I can get better deals there than I can at the regular grocery store with coupons. But for the things that I use that I insist in name brand for that I can't get at the discount store it's coupons all the way!

 I hate when I do that, get home from the store and discover I had at least 2 coupons for things I bought that I could have used.  lol

 It does look confusing.  I'll stick to using them for what I need only.  =-)

I am no where near an extreme couponer. I use them when I have them. I only save a few dollars at the grocery store but when I use coupons at Walmart or Target for household items I seem to save much more.

No! haha  I occassionally get into clipping them (usually after an Extreme Couponers marathon), but I always forget them when I go to the store. D'oh! ;)
