 yes, I do not get enough food stamps to last all month, so I use as many coupons as I can to make them stretch......simple frown

It shows you are trying to save and get off.

Yup and they love when you do that since it saves them money as well.  I did it with WIC checks also.

i do it all the time, I get enough for me and my son but I split it up into weekly costs, right now I have $80 for the rest of the month I do coupons and winco. I'll probably spend about $20 this nect trip becuase we just need basics I got a lot of meals last time I went. and snacks are easy for us. I keep a lot of let overs that ds likes which helps.

Yes of course you can. It helps sometimes but in my experience buying store brand can be cheaper than a popular brand with a coupon. Just gotta watch the sales I guess....
