Do you use coupons for shopping?  What sorts of coupons do you use and where do you get them?  How much do you think you save?  Share some of your tips!

I use some out of the paper and print some off.  I am by no means one of the extreme couponers but I do enjoy saving some each shopping trip on items I already buy.

 I get them from the Sunday papers and some I print from Coupons.com and Couponmom. I only use coupons for what we normally use and I watch for sales, so I can save even more.

 How much I save depends on the coupons available each month. I have save anywhere from 0-$50 a trip. The $50 trip included 5-$5 off 5 qt. containers of motor oil and several for shampoos, body wash and grocery items. I keep and eye on expiration dates. If the coupons are going to expire in a week, and we will need something, like deodorant before long, I will get it sooner than needed to save some money.

I get them from the Sunday paper too. A lot of the time they have good ones on toiletries and cleaning products. Also when you buy stuff like at Target based on what you buy sometimes your receipt spits out coupons. I am not an extreme couponer either but they come in handy when I want to buy makeup or air freshener. I got a bunch of stuff the other day and had $1-$1.50 off coupons.

I use coupons, but am not an extreme couponer. I buy the Sunday paper and match it up with things that are on sale. I save the coupons that I know I'll use and watch for them to go on sale.
Also, stores like CVS and Target will let you use manufacturer and store coupons for the same item. Which can lead to major savings.

I need to get better about the expiration dates thing.  I let way too many expire that I could really use.

I do. I shop at krogers and load coupons on to my kroger card. I grocery shopped yesterday and saved $27 with my coupons.  I also print them out, cut coupons from the local papers,etc.
